Vizio M65-C1

 

Vizio's new M-Series of HDTVs shows you can get a big 4K screen with a very good picture without spending a whole lot of money.

Excellent contrast. Accurate color. Inexpensive compared with similar-sized 4K HDTVs.

Menus occasionally looks a bit fuzzy. Yahoo-based app ecosystem feels clunky.

Vizio's M-Series stands as one of the best values you can find in big-screen 4K HDTVs. They perform very well, and the price ($1,500 for the 65-inch model we tested) can't be beat. If you don't need a big screen, the smaller Sharp UB30 series is even...

Vizio M series review: Great 4K picture quality at an affordable price

 

The Vizio M series is one of the least-expensive TVs with 4K resolution, and it's also one of the best performing we've tested.

The Vizio M series is one of the least-expensive 4K TVs you can buy. Its picture quality, thanks to full-array local dimming, delivers deep black levels and excellent contrast for an LCD TV. Color accuracy and some aspects of video processing are...

Competing 4K TVs offer better video processing and more accurate color prior to picture-setting calibration. Only one HDMI input is compatible both HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. The silver finish doesn't blend in as well as black would.

The Vizio M series sits at this year's sweet spot of price and picture, and just happens to be 4K too.

Vizio M65-C1

 

Vizio is the current godfather of high-value TVs, and the 2015 M series is the poster child. It's priced hundreds less than any of the 4K offerings from Samsung and Sony, and performs better than most. The secret to that picture has nothing to do with...

Vizio M Series (M65-C1) Review: Great Big 4K Value

 

At this price and performance mark, the Vizio 65-inch M-Series is destined to be a popular 4K ultra-HD set that appeals to a wide variety of shoppers. While it lacks some high-end features, such as support for the newest high dynamic range (HDR)...

Excellent contrast and deep blacks ; Good color reproduction ; Large 4K picture for a reasonable price ; Handy remote with built-in keyboard

Aging smart TV interface ; Poor sound

The Vizio M-Series' full-array backlighting delivers a superb picture for 4K TV shoppers who want a large 65-inch set at an affordable price.

VIZIO M65-C1 UHD LED/LCD TV Reviewed

 

Adrienne Maxwell reviews VIZIO's M65-C1, a 65-inch UHD TV that offers full-array LED backlighting with local dimming, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a solid smart TV platform for $1,500.

The VIZIO M65-C1 is an excellent "right now" TV. What do I mean by that? If you're shopping specifically to upgrade from HD to Ultra HD and plan to upgrade to UHD source devices like Ultra HD Blu-ray when they are available, then the M65-C1 probably...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Amazing quality for a refurbished item!!

 

This TV got great Consumer Electronic Show reviews and great ratings through both Consumer Reports and CNET. It came in with all of the trim gaurds and plastic wrap still in place, so it had never even been mounted on its stand or wall mounted. The...

The power cord was missing from the box, but I called the 3rd party seller and had one the next day via Express Mail. Their customer service was outstanding

fantastic deal

 

So far so good! I love the 65 inch screen. Once I updated the apps, everything ran faster and amazons app started working. Netflix runs smooth. Screws for the base suck. Also had trouble connecting the plastic cover piece between the tv and base,...

At first the picture was not very good, until I started playing with color contrast, brightness, tint etc.. Then I started to enjoy the tv more. The only complaint about this tv was it is not true black unlike my old panasonic and my other tv. It has a...

We are extremely happy with this TV. Picture and sound are great. We are using it as a classroom monitor in a 50' space and everyone has a great view no matter how close or far away. Smart TV is a bonus, and we enjoy the ability to stream without a...

Great TV for the money

 

The Vizio M65-C1 is the best TV for the money in the 4K Ultra HD field. Super crisp picture, good field of view. The sound is OK, but like most people, I opted for a sound bar for better fidelity. Set up out of the box was simple and intuitive, no...
