Vizio M and P series promise great picture quality for less
The latest 2017 versions of Vizio's M and P Series haven't changed much from last year.
And that's a good thing.
I'll start with the M Series, which includes size 50 through 75 inches.
It's one of the least expensive TVs you can get with polar ray local dimming, a technology that helped lat year's version achieve image quality that beat every other TV at its price.
Due for 2017, the M series also has better color with dynamic green sources and continue to sport both HDR 10 and Dolby Vision.
Another change from 2016 is the lack of a tablet remote.
Instead, you get a standard multi button clicker complete with the ability to change picture settings and other parameters on screen instead of having to [UNKNOWN] The app remains an option if you want however, and Vizio has improved its usability and functionality.
The n series still lets you cast apps directly from your phone.
But coming later this year is a full fledged on screen smart TV system too.
It works just like other systems but I really like having the option to use a standard clicker, or universal remote instead of a phone.
One downside the system still doesn't support Amazon video.
The P series is a bit more expensive and available in 55 through 75 inches.
It's improvements over the M series are focused on picture quality with more local demi zones and a brighter image.
Visio says the 2017 P series television's actually exactly the same as the 2016 version.
But both will continue to receive software upgrades to improve the picture quality.
I plan to review the 2017 M&P series TVs as soon as possible.
