CNET First Look
Vizio P-Series: Great picture quality and value now includes a free tabletVizio's P-Series TV includes a 6-inch Android tablet remote, but we recommend it because of its excellent image quality for a moderate price.
Vizio P Series is an excellent choice. It has superb picture quality and an affordable price. And it comes with this tablet. You get a standard remote for basic stuff like power and input but the only way to control more advanced setting is Vizio's app. All the menus are on the tablet itself. The same goes for apps like Netflix. This Visio builds in the Google Cast feature found on Google's popular Chromecast and requires your phone or tablet for control. It works well but in many ways it's less convenient than the big screen version of Netflix. But hey, it's a full function six inch Android tablet and even includes a wireless charging stand. That's pretty cool. Even cooler is the picture quality. VIZIO's P-series performed as well as some of the best LCDs from Samsung and Sony on our tests. With deep black levels, accurate color, and plenty of brightness. It also looked great with the latest Dolby Vision high dynamic range TV shows from Netflix and VUDU. The P-series even manages to look better than you probably expect from VIZIO. With a real metallic frame and a sleek all picture look. As you probably do expect from Vizio, the best part is the price. For this level of picture quality and features, the P Series is a tremendous value, even if you don't care about the tablet.
