    Flickering area on Vizio

    I have a 4K Vizio I bought a few years ago. No complaints but today, I noticed a faint flickering on the left side. It’s a rectangular shape the brightens briefly and drops to normal. When I put up a static image, I can see the dark rectangular area. I’m wonder if the pixels are dying. Any thoughts?

    VIZIO M-Series Quantum (55” & 65”)

    Now this is getting interesting. Vizio has brought their Quantum technology to their M-Series TV. Costco has the 65” M-Series Quantum for $789. Might just change my bedroom TV upgrade plans. https://www.vizio.com/tvs/m657g0.html

    Vizio V series and LG UBX90

    It seems like I am always having an issue. I just got a Vizio V Series 50 inch with Dolby Vision and I just got an LG UBX 90 4k player with Dolby vision. When ever I play a disc with Dolby vision, there is a stuttering effect, looks like a slight freeze frame during movement. Example, during...

    Anyone upgraded from Vizio 2.1 sound bar to 5.1?

    Sound bar question (yes, I know which forum I'm at...): has anyone here upgraded from Vizio's sb3621n-e8 or sb3621n-f8m to one of their 5.1 sound bars (such as sb3651-f6). If so, how well do their satellite speakers work? Do they add a worthwhile surround improvement? And are the sound bar and...

    So I got a Vizio SB3651-E6...

    So far its working out pretty well over ARC. Now its lossy so it only supports regular old DTS and Dolby Plus. This model also has something of a bad rap for turning off on its own but its only happened to me twice in isolated cases and both instances involved playing streaming content. Its been...

    Vizio P55 F1 annoying lines

    I recently bought this model to replace my old Vizio E-50. Blu-Rays look amazing, and I'm very happy overall with the picture quality. However, I've noticed a recurring issue with some channels, especially Netflix and broadcast TV networks. There is a lot of noise floating in the background that...

    Vizio P55 C1 or F1

    I've been comparing these two models online, and they seem almost identical in features. But the C1 is around $500 while the F1 is closer to $800. This will be my first 2160p TV. I currently own a Vizio E series 50-inch that I've had a little over 4 years. I've been very happy with it, but I'm...

    Looking for advice on a new TV: TCL 6 Series vs Vizio P Series or something else?

    My LG plasma recently met an unfortunate end, and I'm now in the market for a new TV. My budget and requirements might be slightly unusual because while this TV will be in our main living room, it's not necessarily going to be the primary display device, as I also have a projector in the same...

    Vizio m series

    Hello, I'm currently looking at purchasing a new display. I'm looking at tvs around the $700 range and 55" or larger. With this budget, I'm thinking the vizio m series would probably be the best bang for the buck. I generally like Samsung products, but in looking for a display that is 4k, as...

    Vizio D-Series Impressions?

    I'm on a budget and I'm looking for a 1080p LED. So far the 43" vizio d-series is what im looking at but it doesn't have a great cnet rating. Besides the bad viewing angles (I will be right in front) is it a bad option?
