2016 came and went as quickly as any other year in recent past. And now that we’ve kicked off a brand new year, it’s time for me to look back and reflect on which TVs delivered the best performance (picture quality).
1080p TVs – Still a Good Choice for High Definition Viewing
Are you in the market for a new TV, but still not concerned or interested in the latest rave of 4K Ultra HD TVs that are taking over the television landscape? If so, you should know there are still plenty of 1080p HDTVs currently available, although in much smaller numbers and available models since manufacturers are now focusing most of their production efforts on 4K models. With that said, 1080p models still deliver excellent picture quality and usable features such as a decent smart TV interface/platform, all at a cheaper price.
65″ P Series HDR 120Hz SmartCast LED Display
When Vizio’s first generation of P Series televisions hit the market in late 2014, they were met with mixed reviews from consumers, enthusiast and industry experts alike. These TVs generated reports from users of picture quality and functionality issues (see review of P652ui-B2 here for more info). However, Vizio did work to correct many of the issues via firmware updates.
Vizio introduced the original P Series back in 2014 which became very popular among consumers… fast forward to 2016 where this series has been reintroduced with a new design and improved features and performance.
55″ M55-C2 60Hz (120Hz effective) Smart LED TV
Over the past few years, Vizio has really stepped up the quality of their televisions in design (appearance), features and performance, all delivered to you – the consumer – at very affordable pricing, which has established the “Vizio” brand name as one of the “best bang for your buck” options currently available.

A Quick Look at Vizio’s 50” E-Series 60Hz (120Hz effective) Smart LED TV
The E-Series is Vizio’s entry-level line of HDTVs and offers about the best bang for your buck in a 1080p display currently available. The level of performance vs. its budget friendly pricing, make it a great value for anyone looking for a quality 1080p high definition TV.
70″ M70-C3 120Hz (240Hz effective) Smart LED TV
Vizio’s new M-Series has made the transition from last year’s 1080p models to 4K UHD TVs for 2015, and initial reports on performance from consumers have been, overall, very positive with the exception of a few performance/technical issues. This is good news considering how Vizio’s P-Series 4K TVs got off to a very shaky start last year.
Update: Vizio’s Latest M Series 4K UHD TVs – All Models Available Now!
The popularity of 4K Ultra HD TVs continues to rise, and with that rise, comes falling prices. And speaking of pricing; when Vizio launched its P Series 4K Ultra HD TVs in October of 2014, a new bench mark was set in the price vs. performance market segment. At that time,Vizio introduced a 50-inch 4K UHD TV for a very affordable $999.00.
