#1. Vizio OLED 2020
The Vizio OLED 2020 is the best Vizio TV in the OLED category. Like other OLEDs, its ability to turn pixels off individually results in a near-infinite contrast ratio and perfect, inky blacks in a dark room, with no blooming around bright objects or subtitles. The TV looks sleek with a raised stand that leaves plenty of space for a soundbar. It has a near-instantaneous response time, so motion looks exceptionally clear with very little blur. It also has extremely wide viewing angles, which is great if you need to accommodate a wider seating arrangement since the image doesn’t lose accuracy from the side. Despite not getting very bright, it has incredible reflection handling, so glare isn’t an issue unless you have a lot of natural light. Also, it delivers a great HDR experience thanks to the wide color gamut, and small highlights stand out.
Unfortunately, like all OLED TVs, there’s a risk of permanent burn-in with cumulative exposure to static elements, like the UI of your favorite game or the logo of your favorite cable news network. Beyond that, it may not be the best option for serious gaming, despite having a high 120Hz refresh rate and HDMI 2.1 ports. It supports FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) technology to reduce screen tearing in games, but while it has a low input lag, it’s not as low as other high-end 4k TVs. It also includes a backlight strobing feature to help reduce motion blur, but it only flickers at 120Hz, which causes the image to appear duplicated in certain content. All that said, it’s still an excellent TV overall, and despite these minor issues, it makes a welcome addition to the OLED market.
The best Vizio TV we’ve tested with an LED panel is the Vizio P Series Quantum 2021. It’s a great all-around TV that delivers an impressive experience for watching movies in dark rooms. Even though it’s not as good overall as the older Vizio P Series Quantum X 2020, that TV is hard to find. The main advantage of owning an LED TV over OLED is that there’s no risk of permanent burn-in, so you can leave it on your favorite news channel all day or use it as a PC monitor and not have to worry about damaging the screen over time. The VA panel on this TV has a remarkable contrast ratio and a decent full array local dimming system, resulting in deep, uniform blacks in a dark room, with very little blooming around bright objects or subtitles.
Sadly, like other Vizio models, there are a ton of bugs associated with this TV. It doesn’t support 4k @ 120Hz signals with chroma 4:4:4 from a PC, so text isn’t displayed properly, but surprisingly, it displays 4k @ 120Hz games from the Xbox Series X or PS5 perfectly outside of ‘Game’ mode. It has VRR support in the form of native FreeSync, which helps reduce tearing in some games, and it has exceptional low input lag with most signals, ensuring a responsive gaming experience. There are a few issues with certain formats, and it can’t display 120Hz signals properly in ‘Game’ mode. Most of these issues have to do with gaming, so if that doesn’t bother you, then it’s a great TV overall.
If you’re on a budget, then the best Vizio TV we’ve tested is the Vizio M7 Series Quantum 2021. Although it’s a mid-range model in their 2021 lineup, it doesn’t cost much and offers a few more gaming features than budget models from other brands. It’s great for gaming because it has a quick response time for fairly smooth motion, and it has low input lag for a responsive gaming experience. The VRR support provides a near tear-free gaming experience, but the panel is limited to 60Hz, so you can’t use it for high-frame-rate gaming.
It supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+ for streaming HDR content, and it displays a wide color gamut, but it doesn’t get bright enough in HDR to make highlights stand out the way the creator intended. Its VA panel displays deep blacks thanks to the high contrast, but its local dimming feature is mediocre and doesn’t improve the picture quality in dark scenes. It crushes blacks, so you lose details in bright scenes. If you want to use the TV in a well-lit room, it has decent peak brightness and decent reflection handling, but we don’t suggest placing it opposite a bright window. All in all, it’s one of the best budget TVs we’ve tested.
