VIZIO’s P-Series TV: Consumer Reports Joins Us With Their Opinions

Vizio p-series

Consumer Reports joined Into Tomorrow this week to tell us about Vizio’s P-series lineup:

Vizio recently announced its new P-series lineup of 4K TVs. Consumer Reports electronics spokesman James McQueen is here to tell us what we need to know about them.

If you think using a tablet is a smarter, better way to control your TV, then you’re going to like the new line of Vizio P series SmartCast 4K UHD TVs. Each of the sets comes with a 6-inch Android tablet that runs the Vizio remote-control app.

The new Vizio P series sets, which range in price from $1,000 for a 50-inch model to $3,800 for a 75-incher, are full-featured 4K UHD TVs that, like the Reference-series sets, support Dolby Vision HDR. Vizio says an update for both series will enable support for the HDR10 high dynamic range format. LG’s new 4K TVs, for example, support both HDR formats, and we expect other manufacturers with TVs that have Dolby Vision capability to follow suit.

Although the TVs also come with a basic remote, the company clearly intends for you to use the included tablet remote to control the TV. The 6-inch Android tablet has 16GB of storage and built-in speakers, and comes with a wireless charging dock. Using SmartCast, you’re able to search for content across multiple apps, instead of looking through each one individually.

For Into Tomorrow, James McQueen – Consumer Reports

Chris recommended an app he’s been playing with:

MSQRD: Live Filters & Face Swap for Video Selfies. It lets you change your face into something else live, or record it to send it.
