Remember when 4K TVs were first announced? The idea of getting one seemed like a dream. VIZIO wants you to stop scrimping, saving and researching and start buying—today.
The company just debuted the 2015 M-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV collection, which has 4K TVs for as low as $599.99. Well, at least it has one 4K TV at that price, the 43-inch M43-C1.
Of course, that’s not all. The M-Series has a total of nine screen sizes, ranging from 43 to 80 inches. That means you can put 4K into almost any room in the house. Even when you don’t have any actual 4K content, each set has the Spatial Scaling Engine to upscale whatever HD and full HD content you’re watching to a near-4K image. And that 4K image is four times the resolution of a 1080p HDTV!
All nine sets have full-array LED backlighting with 32 active LED zones (23 for the 43-incher) for better color and contrast. The M-Series also delivers up to Clear Action 720 with a 240Hz effective refresh rate (depending on the model) for smooth action and sports. And Active Pixel Tuning can boost that brightness and contrast even further, by automatically adjusting on-screen details for the best picture possible. Other image highlights include the Pure Cinema Engine, a High Velocity Mode for video games, HDCP 2.0 support, and the latest HDMI 2.0 spec.
Of course, each of these sets comes with all of the web-based perks you’d expect from a new 4K TV. Each set has a V6 six-core processor and 802.11ac dual-band WiFi to help deliver VIZIO Internet Apps Plus, the company’s on-screen smart TV platform. That lineup has all of the entertainment you’d possibly need, including 4K content from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, UltraFlix and Toon Goggles, as well as services like Pandora, Hulu Plus, iHeartRadio, and more.
Besides the aforementioned 43-incher, M-Series 4K TVs can be had as the 49-inch M49-C1 ($769.99), the 50-inch M50-C1 ($799.99), the 55-inch M55-C2 ($999.99), the 60-inch M60-C3 ($1,499.99), the 65-inch M65-C1 ($1,699.99), the 70-inch M70-C3 ($2,199.99), the 75-inch M75-C1 ($2999.99), and the 80-inch M80-C3 ($3,999.99).
