Expert Rankings

The Vizio D Series’ wide viewing angles and Chromecast compatibility make it a good TV for quick viewing. In addition, its small size makes it ideal for a smaller space, like a bedroom. Only two HDMI ports and a limited color gamut hold it back. But you will be impressed by the Vizio M-Series (MQ6) LED TV that boasts a wide color gamut.
