Product Preview

The wait is almost over…after much anticipation and many delays, Vizio’s Reference Series is set to appear on the market. Release dates still unknown, but coming very soon.

Update: Both models available now.

Vizio claims their new Reference Series’ sets a new benchmark of sensory excellence, while portraying a “picture of perfection”.

I certainly hope these claims can and will be realized with these long awaited high-end displays.

  • I would like to buy it in Poland

    • Don’t know if the Reference Series is available in Poland. Does Vizio have a website available in Poland to buy their products? If not, try contacting Vizio’s customer service to see if they can help.
