Vizio P50-C1

 

Vizio's P-series of HDR-compatible 4K televisions delivers solid image quality and includes an Android tablet to serve as a remote.

Excellent contrast. Powerful SmartCast connected platform. Tablet is handy as a remote and media device.

Middling color accuracy. Included tablet isn't powerful enough to be used on its own for much more than movies and reading.

Conclusions Vizio's P-series 4K televisions are technically impressive and loaded with features. The SmartCast platform is a welcome departure from most other connected televisions, and the included tablet puts its various media features right at your...

Vizio P50-C1

 

"I honestly don't know," I tell them. "But it's the best TV for the money you can buy."

The Vizio P-Series has outstanding overall picture quality that competes well against the highest-end TVs. It can handle both high-dynamic-range formats. The remote is a fully functional Android tablet. The Google Cast system offers more apps and...

Using the tablet for settings and streaming apps is often more of a hassle than traditional onscreen menus. No built-in tuner, so you can't watch over-the-air antenna broadcasts unless you attach a separate tuner. No HDR10 compatibility until a...

Forget the "free tablet," the real story with Vizio's excellent P-Series TV is top-notch picture quality and future-ready features at an affordable price.

Vizio P-Series 2016 review

 

Most of the time when I tell someone that a Vizio TV has a better picture than a Samsung, LG or Sony, they're incredulous. "Really?" they ask. "But it's so much cheaper. How is that possible?"

Vizio P Series 2016 4K HDR Ultra HD TV Review (P50-C1, P55-C1, P65-C1, P75-C1)

 

Vizio has really come into its own since first kickstarting their drive for reputation via superior but affordable 4K UHD TVs with great specs, back in late 2014 with their first P-Series models and their revolutionary pricing for the time. Since then,...

Superb high dynamic range ; HDR10 and Dolby Vision compatible ; Excellent contrast ; Vizio SmartCast mobile smart TV ; Included tablet ; Incredible black levels ; Great color performance ; Wonderful motion control specs

No 3D ; Weak viewing angles ; Peak brightness could be still higher ; SmartCast glitches up sometimes

The bottom line you need to keep in mind for the Vizio P-Series is that quite simply, these are some of the best 4K LED/LCD HDR TVs we’ve seen for 2016. When you balance out their prices and the quality that all of the models uniformly share, we’d...

Consumer review by: FloDavidFlo (cnet.com)

I agree with the reviewer 100%

 

Best value for a 75" TV out there. We love it, in fact marvel at it each time we use it.

The picture. and quality of construction is superb.

It is a little heavy and it was difficult to find.

Vizio P 65 C1 Best TV for the price and then some

 

I have had this TV for about 2 weeks now and I must say compared to a 2 year old Vizio M series and a Panasonic plasma (used to be my bet TV) both 65 inch tvs, this one out shines both in every way. The picture on 720P an up from the Direct TV is...
