Excellent picture quality, well thought-out features and distinctive design make the Vizio M-Series seem like a much more expensive TV than it really is.
We liked the picture quality-to-performance propositions of Vizio's 1080p resolution M-Series and E-Series TVs last year, which bodes well for the new 4K-resolution P-Series.
