Pro Good for watching with a crowd
This TV works very well in rooms where people sit on the side of the TV and view it at an angle because of the wide viewing angles of the LG SJ9500. The colors and brightness levels of the TV start to shift only when the viewing angle reaches 30 degrees, which is a by far better result than what the majority of LED TVs in this price range offer.
Pro Good for gaming
The VIZIO D-Series offers decent gaming experience thanks to its high overall responsiveness and excellent motion handling. The gaming feels lag-free because of the TV's low input lag that measures at only around 22.2 milliseconds.
The VIZIO D-series runs SmartCast which is free of ads.
Pro Fair motion handling
The motion on this TV looks smooth and clear thanks to the TV's pixels that can change their colors very fast as well as the optional black frame insertion feature that works at a high frequency.
The TV's full pixel response time measures at only 12.1 ms - fast enough to eliminate long traces of the artificial motion blur.
Additionally, the motion looks clear, and the details look sharper thanks to the TV's black frame insertion feature. This feature allows the TV to insert black frames in between of the actual content frames. This makes the details appear definite.
Con Can't produce inky blacks
The LG SJ9500 is not the best option for those looking for a home theater TV because of its sub-par blacks that look washed-out when the TV is placed in a dark room. The TV's overall black uniformity measures at the standard deviation of around 2%; this is a weak result considering that some of the current-generation competitors offer up to four times more uniform, blacks.
Con Bad for group watching
The VIZIO D-Series isn't the best TV to watch with a crowd because those who sit at an angle to the TV will experience degraded image because of the TV's lousy viewing angles. As soon as the angle between the viewer and a TV gets more significant than 13 degrees, the black levels start to degrade. This is a common problem for the VA TVs.
Con Can't fight glare
The VIZIO D-Series is a poor choice for bright rooms because the TV's peak brightness is not high enough to fight glare emitted by other sources of light.
