    Vizio’s New Flagship P-Series Quantum TV Boasts 2,000 Nits of Peak Brightness

    (Vizio)

    (July 25, 2018) Last month Vizio rolled-out its P-Series of 4K televisions, now the company is officially unleashing its flagship performer in stores from coast to coast. As first seen earlier this year, the P-Series Quantum is a singular 65” model that’s locked and loaded with a deadly High Dynamic Range (HDR) weapon: 2,000 nits of peak brightness. That amounts to twice the peak output of any other P-Series TV, nearly doubling any of the best brightness performers showcased at last year’s Value Electronics Flat Panel Shootout.

    Housed in a bezel-less design that can trick the eye into mesmerizing immersion, the P-Series Quantum features 192 zones of full array local dimming performance (which, notably, is also more than what’s offered by other P-Series sets). Other impressive performance parameters include Quantum Dot technology for more than one billion colors, a 240 Hz refresh rate, and motion smoothing Clear Action 960. The true highlight, however, is the Quantum’s ability to project massive amounts of peak brightness for dramatic HDR performance. When paired with its local dimming design, the P-Series Quantum is billed as a great black level performer, even during scenes with blends of intense brightness.

    The user experience is boosted by SmartCast OS, which provides on-screen access to streaming apps such as Netflix, Prime Video, and Vudu. The OS is integrated to be controlled via physical remote, the free mobile SmartCast Mobile app, and both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. SmartCast OS also features Google Chromecast built-in for access to thousands of Chromecast-enabled apps that deliver both free and paid content.

    Buyers can find the P-Series Quantum at retailers such as Best Buy, Costco, and Sam’s Club for $2,099.99.

      I’m glad LeEco didn’t buy Vizio. I hope good reviews and remote control will be available.

      I can’t recall the Vizio model, but it didn’t come with a remote. You had to download an app and use your phone as the remote.

      This one has a physical remote, along with app and Alexa/Assistant voice control.
