In many ways, it’s the perfect storm for buying a new 4K TV (in a good way). The Super Bowl is fast approaching, so pretty much everybody is offering deals. And most companies just announced their 2019 TV lineup a few weeks ago at CES 2019, so, with 2018 models about to be replaced, you can get them at an even better rate. Like I said, a perfect storm.
One such example is the 2018 Vizio P-Series. Last year it was one of the best 4K HDR TVs under $1,000 that you could buy. Now, with the advent of the 2019 Vizio P-Series, which promises to be a little brighter, faster and smarter, the prices of these 2018 models are dropping. Best Buy is selling a 55-inch model for $650, which is $150 off what it normally costs, and it’s actually about the same cost of its mid-range M-Series — might as well go high-end, right?
For real though: the 2018 Vizio P-Series is a seriously good 4K HDR TV. It supports Dolby Vision HDR so, beyond its many dimming zones and great contrast, this TV looks terrific. And Vizio announced that sometime in 2019 it’ll be updated to support AirPlay 2 and HomeKit, which is just another reason why there’s no shame in buying an “older” TV.
