What makes the best 4K TV better than the rest? Is it the size of the screen, the detail of the image, the contrast of the screen? The Vizio P Series Quantum X may not be one of the best outdoor tvs (or even the best smart tv for streaming) around, but it’s surely superior to your current TV with its excellent picture, integrated smart features, and 4K Dolby Vision display! If you don’t believe me, keep reading to the end, but also check out our best TVs list.

Why We Like It – Vizio P Series Quantum X

The Vizio P series Quantum X is a low latency smart TV with various features like Quantum Dot technology, local dimming, and a 240hz effective refresh rate.

Pros
  • 4x The Picture Quality Of 1080p TVs
  • Has The Widest Color Gamut In Its Class (Thanks To Quantum Dot Technology)
  • Works With Apple Airplay & Apple Home Kit
Cons
  • It’s An LCD TV, Not An OLED TV
  • Expensive

Performance (Display/Resolution/Refresh)

The Vizio P Series Quantum X has a 65″ screen (the Samsung NU6900 55 also has a 65” model available!). The TV uses Quantum Color and Dolby Vision HDR, combined with 384 local dimming zones, to provide the deepest black levels possible, making it one of the best TV monitor sets available. The screen of this P Series Quantum 4K TV can also go extremely bright, with a maximum brightness of 3,000 nits, and operates at a 240Hz effective refresh rate, which provides a smooth image with virtually no blurring (also making it the best tv for sports!).

Sound

You have a couple of different audio options on this TV: a digital optical output, an RCA audio output, and an HDMI ARC. Sadly, it doesn’t have a headphone jack or Bluetooth, so that will somewhat limit your audio options. There was no information on the performance of the internal speakers, so we’re going to recommend you go with a soundbar. This should give you superior sound quality anyway, as internal speakers are usually pretty lackluster. The Vizio PX65 G1 works with Apple Airplay 2 and Chromecast, so it should be pretty easy to get the music to play on this TV.

Smart Features

This member of the P Series, the PX65 G1, is great for streaming, thanks to a variety of smart features that are integrated for an easy entertainment experience. You can stream to the device using Airplay or Chromecast (the LG SM9000 also works with Apple Airplay), or use SmartCast to watch your favorite streaming services (like Netflix or Hulu), as well as enjoy a wide variety of free channels on WatchFree, which is built into the TV. You don’t need to use the remote to control this TV; instead, you can use Siri, Google, or Alexa!

Ports & Expandability

With 5 HDMI ports (all of which are HDMI 2.0) and support for HDMI ARC, it will be easy to add this TV to your current home entertainment system. It also has one USB port and an ethernet port. You can stream to the Vizio PX65 G1 via Airplay or Chromecast, so you’ll never have any trouble getting what you’re watching on your phone to the giant screen. The TV comes with a stand, but you can also mount it using a VESA wall mount if you wish.

Value

The Vizio PX65 G1 costs $1,993 new, although you can pick up a used “like new” model for $929. If this seems a bit expensive to you, the Sony X720E is a much more budget-friendly smart TV. However, if the price tag doesn’t deter you, then you will be happy to know that the TV itself won’t cost you very much, using only approximately $55 worth of electricity per year! Unlike other models, this TV does not come with a warranty, and there is no protection plan offered. In that case, you’ll want to check out these other TVs: Vizio M558 G1-M Series and the Sony A8H Bravia OLED 55-inch TV.

Vizio P Series Quantum X Wrap Up

The Vizio P Series Quantum X is a solid TV, offering multiple smart features on a 4K HDR monitor equipped with Quantum Color and Dolby Vision technology. The device itself seems to be a good buy, but the lack of warranties or customer support is very concerning. On the plus side, the TV scores a 4.1 out of 5-stars, so with a bit of luck, it should be a good purchase.
