With great contrast and vivid colors, the Vizio M6 is an affordable entry into quality 4K visuals, but those willing to spend slightly more may want to consider options with higher brightness, wider viewing angles, or HDMI 2.1 support.

Consensus

our Verdict

The 2022 Vizio M6 Series Quantum has a disappointing 252 cd/m2 peak brightness but shines with a fantastic 8,516:1 native contrast ratio, deep, uniform blacks, and a wide color gamut. It handles reflections well but isn’t bright enough to overcome glare in well-lit rooms. Inputs are adequate for most users, though it’s missing Ethernet and HDMI 2.1.

Auto low latency modes make it a reasonable choice for gamers on a budget, but it’s missing G-Sync compatibility. The tested refresh rate is just 60Hz. The M6 struggles with upscaling and has a below-average 30-degree viewing angle. Still, it’s one of the more affordable 4K TVs on the market, and its quantum dot technology enables excellent color and native contrast, making it a good value for image quality.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Impressive 8,516:1 native contrast ratio
  • LED panel with vibrant colors

  • Affordability

Reason to Avoid

  • Not bright enough to overcome glare in well-lit spaces
  • Lacks HDMI 2.1 support
  • Narrow viewing angles
  • Average black levels and contrast
  • 60Hz refresh rate is not ideal for fast-paced gaming
