Vizio M series 2016: Midrange TV with a free tablet
This is VIZO's M series successor to CNET's highest rated TV of 2015.
I expect the new version, seen here in a 55 inch size to perform very well for the price but we'll have to wait to review one just to see how good it is.
Like the P series the M offers 4K resolution and is compatible with high dynamic range of video content.
Which in my experience can really improve video quality.
Vizio's HDR TVs currently work with Dolby Vision content from Netflix, Amazon and Vudu, but a software update coming by the end of the summer for the M&P series will allow them to work with external devices too, like 4k Blu-ray players which support the HDR 10 form.
The on-picture quality sets offer a unique feature They come with a free Android tablet as well as a traditional standard TV remote.
The tablet replaces a standard smart TV system with apps for streaming videos.
Instead of browsing an on-screen menu, you'll access Netflix and other apps on the tablet or your phone and cast them to the TV, just a Google Chromecast.
The table included with the M series looks very similar to the one included with the P series but offers a low resolution screen, less memory, and a somewhat slower processor.
If you weren't big fans of the [INAUDIBLE] we recommend connecting a separate streaming device like a Roku or Apple TV instead.
I'm David Cathron, and this is a preview of the 2016 Visio M series.
