For those looking for a 4k screen without all the added extra features like wide color gamut, HDR support and 4:4:4 croma sub-sampling, this is the best option, as it offers above respectable picture specifications and one of the lowest input lags in the market with a staggering low price even for large screens.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very dark blacks
A pure black screen measures just 0.023 cd/m², which means that when black colours or loading screens appear, they will actually look black (instead of the dark purplish glow which lower quality screens produce when displaying black colours).
Pro Great colors
The colors on this TV deliver great accuracy and very little banding, easily outperforming any other TV in its price range.
Pro Decent response time for gaming
This TV has a response time of 12.3ms, which is pretty good but not optimal for gaming. 16ms is considered the total response time (from mouse to monitor) before humans can detect the delay, so as long as you use a very fast mouse you shouldn't notice any delay whatsoever.
Pro Size options
The TV comes in various sizes, starting from 40” up to 65”, making it easy to choose the best size for you.
Pro 5 HDMI ports
With 5 HDMI ports, which offer extremely low latency in Game mode, you can have everything plugged into this TV.
Con Mediocre viewing angles
This TV has been testing to have a viewing angle of about 15°. While great for a TV, this is sub-par for a computer monitor. Because you'll be sitting closer to it, the angle from center to the edge of the screen will likely be past the 15° mark, which could leave colours washed out by the edges of the panel.
Con Not the best choice for text or photo editing
The TV does not support chroma 4:4:4 sub-sampling. Therefore, small fonts and small details on photos lose color data and detail.
Con No Chromecast
Unlike Vizio's more recent TV ranges, which use Chromecast, this TV still uses a standard smart TV system, providing only basic functionality and apps.
Con No display port
Display port is a port used to deliver high amounts of data, and more favourable than HDMI for very high resolution high fps gaming.
Con 120Hz only runs in 1080p
Because of the lack of a Display Port, 120Hz can only be achieved at 1080p. 120Hz is preferable when it comes to gaming, so for the best performance you will need to game at 1080p. 4K only supports 60Hz, which isn't ideal for gaming but will work fine for productivity purposes.
Con Low brightness
The TV is not the best option if you plan to use it in bright conditions as the brightness level is one of the lowest in the market, reaching only 260 nits. If it was not for the excellent contrast ratio, the picture would look bland.
