The X850E has a wide color gamut that allows it to reproduce the colors necessary for true HDR, and it has an average peak brightness level of ~400 nits that allows it to light up these colors properly. Thanks to that, HDR pictures look decent and highlights will look fairly good. However, the HDR performance can’t get better than that, due to the average peak brightness of ~400 nits which isn’t really enough for details to truly stand out, and it lacks local dimming. See More
The X850E has a narrow viewing angle that makes it unsuitable for watching with groups. Its picture quality starts to deteriorate significantly when viewing from just ≥20° away from the screen's center. The colors will start degrading really quickly. See More
It has great motion blur handling abilities and a dedicated gaming HDMI port with a reduced input lag of 15.9 ms makes the VIZIO P-series quite suitable for gaming. The TV’s excellent motion blur handling is directly related to its ability to change the color of each pixel 80% of the way in just 3.9 ms so you won't notice any trails on rapidly moving objects. The VIZIO P-series by far outperforms all the competitors on the market when it comes to this. See More
The 55-inch VIZIO P-series TV has significantly lower picture quality than the 65-inch and 75-inch models. The 65-inch and 75-inch models use a VA panel while the 55-inch model has an IPS panel. The main difference between those is that the VA panel has, on average, four times higher contrast ratio than the IPS panel; Thus, the VA panel can reproduce more vibrant and more in-depth scenes.

The 55-inch model of the VIZIO P-series has excellent viewing angles because of its IPS panel which preserves correct colors and shades no matter the angle between the viewer and the panel. This property makes the TV ideal for watching with a group. See More
The VIZIO P-series is suitable for HDR-enhanced content because of its full HDR10 and Dolby Vision support. The HDR10 and Dolby Vision are currently the two flagship HDR formats used in the multimedia industry, which means that all the new HDR movies and shows are compliant with either one of those formats. It’s also worth noting that in the HDR field, the VIZIO P-series outperforms its competitors, including the Samsung MU8000 which lacks Dolby Vision support. See More
The B8 has an excellent quality of picture. Its infinite contrast ratio delivers the blackest blacks, which makes it excellent for dark room viewing. The HDR color is spot on, providing nearly perfect color when set to the Dark Room color mode. Being an OLED tv, the black uniformity is perfect and the grey uniformity is up there as well, with 2.454% standard deviation from neutral grey (a good score is considered anything below 2.5%). See More
The B8 handles reflections really quite well. It has a glossy finish, but you shouldn't be experiencing too many reflections due to the anti-reflective coating. The coating does make reflections look slightly purple, but it's not bad enough to notice, let alone become a problem. See More
The viewing angle on the B8 is very good. Like most tvs, it has a solid viewing angle of around 66°. However, the color degradation isn't bad at all. You can expect a color shift at 28°, a brightness shift at 64°, and a black level shift at an impeccable 75°. This makes the B8 a solid choice for group viewing or large rooms. See More
Due to the Q8's VA panel, the viewing angles leave a bit to be desired. The viewing angle of the screen, overall, is roughly 66°. Once you exceed that angle, you'll start to notice a degradation in picture quality. Blacks will turn grey and even with a small angle, colors will begin to shift. See More
Samsung's FALD (full array local dimming) can be thought of as an array of LEDs behind the screen. The local dimming can do a better job of increasing contrast and color brightness in specific areas of the screen compared to Samsung's older models which used edge lighting and some slight local dimming. See More
The Q8 has an excellent contrast ratio with incredibly deep blacks. The FALD (full array local dimming) feature accents the already good black performance by diminishing bloom and haze around bright objects, lending an excellent overall dark room experience. The HDR works well and is handily able to exceed the 1000 cd/m target for HDR content. The color management is also decent and, while the management system is a little lackluster, with the right settings you can hit a very accurate color palette. See More
