Because of its versatility, the VIZIO P-series is an excellent choice for those who want a TV for gaming, sports, movies, and general media. This 65-inch TV offers a nice compromise between size, picture quality, and productivity.
Pro Good for gaming
The VIZIO P-series is suitable for gaming because of its great motion blur handling abilities and dedicated gaming HDMI port, which has its input lag reduced to only 15.9 ms.
The TV’s ability to handle motion blur is directly related to its small pixel response time. It takes each pixel only 3.9 milliseconds to go from one color to another, 80% through. Such fast color shifting allows the TV to almost eliminate the unwanted motion blur effect. In this department, the VIZIO P-series outperforms all its competitors on the market.
Pro Compatible with HDR media
The VIZIO P-series is suitable for HDR media 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; all the new HDR movies and shows are compliant with either one of those.
The VIZIO P-series offers better HDR support than its competitors like the Samsung Q7C and Sony X930E which lacks Dolby Vision support.
Pro Good picture quality
The 65-inch version of the VIZIO P-series features a VA panel which can reproduce high-quality dark scenes because of its high native contrast ratio, black uniformity, and excellently implemented local dimming. In fact, the local dimming boosts the native contrast ratio of the VA panel from 4675:1 to a whopping 9271:1, which allows the TV to reproduce deep and immersive dark scenes.
As for the bright scenes, the TV’s 513 nits of peak brightness is enough to reduce glare and reproduce high-quality pictures even in bright rooms. The VIZIO P-Series is more luminous than the majority of its competitors, including the LG 7 series OLED and Samsung Q7E.
Pro Highly versatile
Being suitable for gaming, movies, and sports, the VIZIO P-series is one of the most versatile TVs in its price range. While the combination of low input lag and fast response time makes the TV suitable for gaming, the VIZIO P-series is also good for watching sports. Moreover, TV’s uniform blacks, excellent local dimming, and reasonably high peak brightness makes it an attractive option for a home theater.
Pro Has an excellent remote app
This TV comes with a brilliant, well-integrated phone and tablet application which can transform your smart gadget into a fully-functional remote. The application is particularly handy when you need to input some text, for example, while searching content on YouTube or Netflix.
Pro Can increase content's frame rate
This TV is an excellent choice for those who like to ‘speed up’ the regular 30FPS media, sourced from cable or satellite boxes, or old DVDs as it can boost up low frame rate content up to a whopping 120 frames per second. Such frame rate boosting process is called video interpolation, and some people find the interpolated media very attractive.
Con Bad for HDR gaming
This TV is not a good choice for HDR gaming because its dedicated ‘gaming’ HDMI port does not have enough bandwidth to support HDR-compliant input. This means that you will have to use a regular HDMI input port to feed the TV with HDR content. The problem is that the regular HDMI input has 43.5 ms input lag which is too high for fast-paced, competitive gaming.
