If you are asking yourself why are Vizio TVs so cheap, we will discuss the Vizio 4k TVs available in 2016 and try to understand more about this brand.
Vizio certainly has one of the most successful stories in the American entrepreneurship during the last decade, jumping from an initial investment of 600 thousand dollars in 2002, the company already has its market value above 2 bilion dollars, according to wikipedia.
Are Vizio TVs good?
Considering Vizio 4k TVs and their price range you might ask yourself, are Vizio TVs good? How is their quality and reliability? Where are Vizio TVs produced? Vizio TVs are procuded using ODM production in China and Mexico, and my guess is that they are as reliable as TVs by other brands.
My conclusion to this came after analyzing 2 factors: Vizio 4k TVs rank as well as other 4k TVs produced major conglomerates like Samsung or LG, and also because even these companies, also have most of its line of production China. So the difference in production standards between Vizio and other brands cannot be steep, considering the actual manufacturing scenario.
Should I buy a FHD or a 4k Vizio TV
FHD (Full HD) TVs have a max resolution of 1080p while UHD (Ultra HD or 4k) have the double of its resolution. While most of the content you will have access to will be displayed in FHD, this is rapidly changing, so if you buy a 4k Tv, you will in fact see every day more content in the 4k resolution. However, if you are looking for a budget solution, there are not extremely significant differences at this point, that would make choosing a 4k TV the definite choice for a new TV.
