Vizio launches new D series of 4K TVs starting at $600

21 Dec 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Vizio has announced a new D series of affordable HD and 4K TVs. These are Vizio’s cheapest 4K TVs to date. A 50-inch 4K TV is available for just $600 and there is also an affordable 65-inch option.

New 2016 Vizio D series

Vizio’s new D series is a line-up of affordable TVs for “value-conscious consumers”. They range in sizes from 24 to 70” with either HD or 4K resolution, depending on your budget.

Vizio has chosen to include full-array LED backlights in all of the TVs, except the 24” options. This does not mean that the TVs offer a full local dimming system (only 16 zones like many edge LED based TVs) but that the LED backlight is mounted directly behind the LCD panel for improved light homogeneity. It also makes the TV slightly thicker.

Several models come with 120 Hz panel and Vizio’s Smart TV platform that offers access to apps such as Netflix,Hulu, YouTube, and more. The TVs are also equipped with ac WiFi for improved wireless performance, 5 HDMI port, and a size-core processor.

There is no mention of HEVC or VP9 decoding on Vizio’s site or the press release. These compression formats are required to stream Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube in 4K resolution. There is no mention of HDMI 2.0 ports either.

The cheapest 4K option is currently the 50” D50u-D1, which has an MRSP of $730 but is available online for $600. An even cheaper 40” 4K TV will be launched later.
