The eagerly awaited 65" Vizio P-Series Quantum 4K/UHD HDR LCD TV is finally available at various retailers, with top-notch specs for an amazing list price!
The Vizio P-Series 4K/UHD HDR LCD TV sets a pretty high bar for performance and value; see our review here . Now, the company is upping the ante with the Vizio P-Series Quantum, which incorporates quantum dots into its backlight.
Like all Vizio TVs, the new P-Series Quantum implements a FALD (full-array local-dimming) backlight, with 192 diming zones—up from 128 in the previous P-Series. And thanks to the use of quantum dots, Vizio claims the peak brightness is up to 2000 nits, double the specified peak brightness of the P-Series.
Of course, the peak brightness will probably be lower after calibration. On the P-Series, we measured a post-calibration peak brightness of around 450 nits. Still, if the post-calibration peak brightness of the P-Series Quantum is, say, around 1000 nits, that's a big improvement over its predecessor. If it's closer to 2000 nits, so much the better.
As with many Vizio TVs, the P-Series Quantum supports Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) as well as HDR10 and HLG. Another feature common to most Vizio TVs is the company's SmartCast OS, which includes many streaming apps, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Hulu, and others. Then there's Google Chromecast built-in, which lets you cast content from your mobile device to the TV.
Speaking of mobile devices, you can also download the SmartCast Mobile app , which turns a smartphone or tablet into a touchscreen remote. If you prefer controlling the TV with voice commands, the P-Series Quantum supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
According to Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer of Vizio, "The P-Series Quantum combines the best Vizio picture quality technologies and wraps them in a beautifully modern aesthetic. With up to 2,000 nits of peak brightness, 192 zones of local dimming, and advanced quantum-dot technology, viewers enjoy the ideal blend of brightness, contrast, and color for a home-theater experience that rivals the cinema. Our 2018 SmartCast OS opens the door to an expansive collection of streaming options while also allowing the P-Series Quantum to fit seamlessly into Amazon and Google smart-home ecosystems thanks to voice-control support."
The 65" Vizio P-Series Quantum (PQ65-F1) is available now at retailers such as Best Buy , CostCo, Sam's Club, and others . Even better, the list price is an amazing $2099.99! I expect to get one to review very soon, and I plan to turn it around as quickly as possible, so stay tuned!
