Vizio’s new entry-level TVs in the E series do not offer HDR like the more expensive 2016 models but do offer the new platform built on Google Cast. Most of the TVs also come with 4K resolution.
Entry level TVs with Google Cast
Vizio's 2016 E series is a mix of HD and 4K models. From 43” and up all models feature direct LED with a limited form of local dimming (5-12 zones) and from 55” and up all TVs come with 4K resolution.
There is no HDR or Dolby Vision support but Vizio's new SmartCast system is integrated, allowing you to cast content from a phone or tablet onto the TV via Google Cast. The more expensive Vizio TVs have an Android tablet included in the box but there is no tablet bundled with the E series models. Instead, you are expected to use your own phone/tablet.
The 4K models are “pure” SmartCast displays, meaning no TV tuner built in. The 1080p models are traditional TVs with an integrated TV tuner plus SmartCast. Unlike the more expensive Vizio TVs, the E series TVs also come bundled with a traditional TV remote.
Vizio’s new E series TVs will start shipping “soon” starting at $209 dollars for a 32” model. 4K starts at $469 for a 43” model. More information is available on vizio.com.
