The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price.
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.

The 60-inch Vizio M1d-A3R doesn't quite offer the very best value for money in the company's range, but nevertheless features fine picture quality in a large size.
If you're dead serious about first-person shooters and other games that demand millisecond-fine responses, the last thing you want to buy is a TV that introduces lots of input lag. Especially if you're buying one to go with an Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
Sony's wedge-shaped KDL-W850B TV offers better picture quality, albeit for a higher price, than many big-screen LCDs.
The Samsung F7100 series offers a gorgeous design and impressive features, but "just OK" picture quality makes it a poorer value than its rivals.
The big-screen Sony R520/R550 series offers the best value you'll see from the company this year.
The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance.
The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling.
