Update... here is the hands-on post: https://www.avsforum.com/vizio-p65-q...system-review/
A Vizio P65 Quantum 65" TV
has just showed up at my home. Now, this TV has already received the rtings.com review treatment, so I don't have to create any suspense here. This is a great TV that follows the Vizio tradition of pushing the price/performance envelope at around $2100 street price. And it's the company flagship, with a quantum dot filter that kicks up performance a notch while offering a 192-zone FALD (full array local dimming) backlight for enhanced contrast and deeper blacks.
This is a premium flat panel that runs Vizio's SmartCast platform, so it's good to go for all that streaming stuff. It's proven to deliver over 2000 nits peak brightness (with a 10% window or smaller) which allows it to excel at HDR. But it's also able to deliver this peak luminance in SDR, if your application demands it.
Picture quality is the focus here, especially so with the inclusion of Dolby Vision, for an optimized image on an already high-performance screen. And Vizio's are easy to calibrate, so it'll be interesting to find out how close to absolute reference I can get with it.
That's all I've got for now. As you can see, it's sitting on a TV stand, waiting to be unpacked. Underneath, you'll spot an Xbox One X. And flanking it, for audio, a MartinLogan 4.1 speaker system that's running off a NAD T777 AVR.
Unboxing plus initial setup is next, which I'll be working on this afternoon and tomorrow morning. And I'm looking forward to calibrating it this weekend, but like all TVs I get to audition, I want to just run it for a day or two, make sure all the firmware is up to date, sign into a few streaming services, and explore the out of box settings a bit.
