As of now, there are lots of big brands in the smart TV segment and then there are countless upcoming but really promising brands as well. While I have known Vizio as a TV brand for while now, I would still keep in the latter segment because it still has to do a lot of catch-ups.

I mean the way the Chinese TV brands like Xiaomi and Realme are progressing in the smart TV segment, I am sure Vizio TVs would have that in mind and if Vizio could move at such a speed, it would be really good. Having said that, it is also important to know that Vizio is a brand from China that sells smart TVs are really affordable costs. I mean if you compare the features of a Vizio Smart TV and a Samsung Smart TV, with similar features, Vizio TVs would cost almost half the price of a Samsung TV.

Now, this is something that attracts the attention of budget buyers, but if you look at the history of Vizio in the TV segment in the American market, you would surely understand it better.

In 2020, Vizio came up with two OLED TVs for the first time, namely the Vizio OLED H1 Series, and these are now available in 55-inch and 65-inch models, starting at an alluring cost of $1299 for the smaller TV. This series of smart TVs was a good thing for gamers too, especially those who wanted the support of VRR via HDMI 2.1 and Vizio’s new ProGaming Engine. This offered better response times and lower input lag for even the 2020 M-Series, P-Series, and P-Series Quantum X.

However, the best that is working in the market these days are the Vizio V series TVs and you must know about them.

Vizio V series TVs:

Vizio made a very interesting launch some time ago in the form of Vizio V series TVs and these are actually meant for budget buyers. What’s really interesting about the Vizio V series TVs is that there are as many as 12 TVs in the series.

Yes, you read that right, and these differ against each other on the basis of their size and Local Dimming zone. The good news is that all the TVs at this affordable entry-level still support HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG, and while they aren’t exactly sitting pretty at the cutting edge of TV technology, the range offers some exciting pricing.

Besides these, a lot of other desirable features too are included in the smart TVs and these include voice control from Siri or Google Assistant, Vizio SmartCast, Vizio WatchFree (offering 200+ free streaming channels), and both Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in — meaning you can cast content from a compatible smartphone or tablet to the TV.

The smart TVs are powered by a MediaTek chipset which takes care of the display and the connectivity. And the fact that you get 4K TVs at such a low cost is an indicator that MediaTek is situated in the heart of the TVs. But do you doubt the performance? You shouldn’t because the TVs work wonderfully well and MediaTek is the world’s largest producer of smart TV chipsets. Even Samsung TVs use MediaTek chipsets.

I already gave you a hint about the price of the smart TVs right? If you could not get it still, well, how does a 70-inch screen size that’s only $658 brand-new sound? It sounds amazing, right? Well, this is the most important thing that lures the users. Vizio smart TVs start at just $229 for the 40” variant and mind you, I am talking about smart TVs that still support HDR10 content.

No doubt, viewing the Vizio V series TVs and the features they deliver, I think these are good enough to enhance your living room.
