    Vizio M-Series 2016

    Best mid-priced picture for the money

    No other TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Its value proposition is the best we've ever seen on a TV this high-performance and well-equipped, period. The free tablet is just icing on the cake.

    Vizio P-Series 2016

    An even better picture, a bit more money

    With a picture even better than the Vizio M series, and better than numerous other high-end sets from other TV makers, the P series appeals to less brand-conscious videophiles who can’t afford an OLED TV.

    TCL S405 series Roku TV (2017)

    Best built-in smart TV system

    Roku is our favorite platform for streaming apps like Netflix, and it's even better baked into the TV. Image quality on this 4K TCL won't blow you away, but it's perfectly fine for most, especially at this price.

    Vizio E series 2017 (43- to 55-inch)

    Best budget TV for picture quality

    It can't match the image quality of its bigger brothers, but Vizio's smaller E series sets do deliver a better picture than the TCL above. If you prize image quality over streaming in your budget TV, this is a good choice.
