When CNET's David Katzmaierlast year, it distinguished itself as a superb TV with an outstanding picture that just happened to cost hundreds less than OLED equivalent models. That certainly got my attention because, while OLED will admittedly outperform this PX, it won't run rings around it. The differences are marginal enough that you may well relish saving hundreds of dollars to get a picture that's nearly as good. And right now, there's even more of a price incentive. Through Friday, June 12, you can get the at Costco. That's $220 less than Costco's usual price, and is even $100 or so less than the price you can get on a refurbished model at other retailers.
Vizio's PX Series is a 4K UHD display with a minimal bezel that stands on chrome legs. In the review, Katzmaier praised the TV's contrast, which is helped in large measure by 384 local dimming zones. Meanwhile, the set's quantum dots let it deliver great HDR color with a gamut that approximated what many much higher priced TVs are capable of. Its 120Hz panel is also faster than other comparable sets' 60Hz refresh rate.
Around back, you'll find a generous five HDMI ports, component video, USB, Ethernet and both optical and stereo analog audio outputs.
If it has any substantial shortcomings, you might criticize Vizio's smart TV software, which falls far short of what Roku offers. The good news, of course, is you can easily rectify that problem by adding an actual Roku.
If you aren't a Costco member yet, you can.
