Product Snapshot

Overview

The Vizio V Series are budget TVs that were released in 2020. Vizio promises an exceptional 4K Detail with 4K UHD Dolby Vision HDR.

These TVs are perfect for those looking for their first smart TV or even an additional TV for a second room, as well as gamers. This series features dark blacks, a full array of backlight, a fantastic contrast ratio, and low lag performance.

Read through to the end of this Vizio V Series review to learn what experts thought about it and you can also check out the best TVs on the market today.

Consensus

our Verdict

With low input lag and a nice contrast ratio, this HD TV from Vizio will give the average consumer a bright, large screen without breaking the bank.  These great value TVs are a decent choice for those looking for a good gaming screen since you’ll get a sharp, colorful picture with low input lag.

But buyers who have experience in the Smart TV world may find themselves disappointed with the poor viewing angles and lack of brightness.  And with no voice command (such as Alexa) available with the remote, the more sought-out features with newer models are missing.

  • Easy to control streaming from the menu
