LED TVs & OLED TVs

Although similarly named, LED TVs and OLED TVs differ in terms of pixel illumination technology. Each pixel on an OLED TV screen is individually lit, boosting the screen's refresh rate, contrast and color reproduction. On the other hand, the pixels on LED TV screens are backlit by a primary light source and render a brighter screen. When it comes to resolution, you can find both LED and OLED TV in 4K, so the resolution will be top-notch either way.

Smart TVs

Smart TVs integrate the functions of your tablet or computer with the broadcasting abilities of your TV. Smart TVs offer easy access to interactive media, streaming entertainment, home networking and internet TV. Plus, Smart TVs connect to external devices, such as video game consoles and media players and come with integrated wireless capabilities. Are you really into YouTube videos? How about watching movies that you have saved on your computer? With a Smart TV, it's easy to watch online videos and other content on your TV instead of a small computer or tablet screen. And, if you like the idea of all the technology in your home being connected, a Smart TV is the way to go.

Curved TVs

Curved TVs are designed with a curved screen that angles towards the viewer for a greater sense of immersion and depth. You'll enjoy wider viewing and an improved contrast ratio on these panoramic screens. You may also notice fewer reflections, which can improve the viewing experience. Curved TVs also add sleek, elegant style to any entertainment area. If you want a futuristic look for your home entertainment system, consider purchasing a curved TV at Sam's Club!

Quantum Dot + HDR TVs

Quantum Dot + HDR TVs are similar to LED-backlit LCD TVs, but Quantum Dot TV screens are backlit by blue LEDs, rather than white LEDs. Blue LEDs convert light into highly saturated primary colors, which makes an impressive difference when it comes to hue and color gamut. You'll enjoy brilliant imagery and vivid luminosity.

TV Accessories

After you've chosen the perfect TV for your home, it's time to move onto the fun part‚Äîchoosing accessoriesÄù to complete your home theater setup. There are quite a few accessories to choose from. One consideration is how your TV Television will be mounted or displayed. Mounting TVs on the wall is becoming the standard, and for good reason. When you mount a TV on the wall, it eliminates the need for a TV stand, and it creates a clean, modern look. What's more, when nobody is watching the TV, you can display photos or artwork, so it acts like a piece of decor. Sam's Club has plenty of TV mounts and kits and TV mount Kits to choose from. Of course, if you prefer traditional TV stands and consoles, you're sure to find one that's just right.

To get the most out of your entertainment, consider integrating your TV with a high-quality home theater system or sound bar. With a home theater system, you'll get crystal clear audio and the option to play DVD/Blu-ray players and other components wirelessly.

Vizio Inc. (stylized as VIZIO) is an American publicly traded company that designs and sells televisions, sound bars, viewer data, and advertising. The company was founded in and is based in Irvine, California.[7]

History[edit]

The 3 Best Vizio TVs of Reviews and Smart Features

Vizio Smart Features

Vizio TVs run the SmartCast platform, which is very basic and has a very limited selection of apps and it doesn't have an app store. Instead, it's relying on its ability to receive apps that are cast from your smart device. While the platform is versatile and has considerably grown in support from app makers, Vizio’s implementation is far from perfect. The SmartCast app Vizio provides to access content as well as adjust settings isn't the fastest and most stable, and not everything is available for casting.

Interface

Vizio Smart Interface

SmartCast now features a more traditional home screen. Apps like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix are available, as well as featured links to content found on the online TV service Pluto TV. Unfortunately, there's no app store, and apps are not actually installed on the TV; they're links to web-based interfaces.

Vizio's improved the set of options you can change from the TV itself. Nowadays, you don't need to touch the SmartCast app at all to get the TV going properly, and even complete calibration settings are available on the on-screen menus (however, we do recommend using the app for more in-depth calibration since it's a lot more efficient for making a lot of adjustments).

Ad-free

For many years Vizio remained one of the few brands left to not sell their interface to advertisers. However, we noticed with the Vizio M7 Series Quantum and Vizio V5 Series that there's now suggested content on the home page.

Apps & Features

Vizio Apps Picture

Current Vizio TVs don't have an app store, and there's no way to add additional apps. The included apps cover many of the more popular services, but it might not be enough for some people, especially if you rely on streaming services instead of a traditional TV service.

Voice Controls

Vizio finally added support for voice controls with the release of their TVs that come with the new remote (see below). It's pretty basic and not as advanced as other brands, but you can still ask it to change inputs and open apps, but you can't ask it to search for specific content in apps.

Remote

Vizio Smart TV Remote

Vizio released a new remote with their models. It's stripped-down compared to the past version as it lacks a Numpad, but you still get the short buttons to popular streaming services. It's not too big, but it's very basic, and it doesn't have backlighting.

Remote App

Vizio Smart TV Remote App

The Vizio remote app is great. It supports all functions of the remote, and can even be used to enter text into some apps, which is rare. The TV's settings can also be controlled and adjusted directly in the app, including the TV's calibration. This can now be done on the TV itself, but due to the slow interface, it's usually faster to change the settings through the remote app.

Known Issues

The SmartCast platform isn't the most versatile, and it can be very slow. On  models, we've encountered a few bugs with the settings, so it can be frustrating sometimes. Vizio is generally pretty good with software updates, though, and hopefully, most of these issues will be fixed.
