For 2023, Vizio is bringing high-end features typically reserved for its P-Series to more models, adding variable refresh rates, 4K, and Wi-Fi 6E to as many units as possible. Here’s what you need to know, starting with the more expensive Vizio M-Series Quantum X and working our way down to the entry-level segment.

Vizio’s 2023 TV Lineup

This year Vizio has a little something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a high-end TV with an affordable price tag or a TV that can double as a gaming monitor. Most TVs now offer 120Hz as a native refresh rate, which previous generations lacked.

All 4K TVs in Vizio’s new lineup come with a voice remote and feature many of the same things from prior models. We’re talking about Dolby Vision, AMD FreeSync variable refresh rates, Bluetooth LE, and HDR10+ support. And the new M-Series Quantum X even offers 240Hz at 1080p.

M-Series Quantum X (MQX)

Vizio’s M-series always tries to include the best features from its more expensive P-series at an affordable price point, and we’re getting much of that again here in 2023. More specifically, the Quantum X line now has the same powerful Vizio IG Ultra Plus processor as the P-line, meaning you can expect top-of-the-line performance for gaming and 4K HDR content.

With Quantum dot technology, the MQX line delivers a wide array of colors to your screen and supports and covers 80% of the Rec2020 color space. Each model has a full array backlit system with up to 1,000 nits peak brightness and 32 local-dimming zones.

Every screen size in the MQX line offers AMDFreeSync Premium VRR and ultra-low input lag, HGiG, and DolbyVision auto gaming, to ensure the best experience possible across all content. Additionally, The 50-inch M-Series Quantum X model (M50QXM-K01) has a native 120Hz refresh rate in 4K (not just when hooked up to your gaming console) and is capable of super-smooth 240Hz at full 1080p HD.

As mentioned earlier, you’ll also get faster Wi-Fi 6E Tri-Band compatibility that supports four times as many devices on the same network. Each model supports Dolby Audio, DTS, and DTS Virtual:X audio. We also get HDMI eArc, Dolby Atmos pass-through, and four HDMI ports on every model.

The 2023 Vizio M-Series Quantum X is available in 50-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch options. The line starts at $629 for the 50-inch model and will be available from July 19th.

M-Series Quantum 6 (MQ6)

As expected, the new MQ6 line is also getting a boost in its Quantum dot technology, bringing more colors than ever to your screen at this price point. The 2023 MQ6 lineup features a Full Array LED backlight system with VIZIO’s Active Pixel Tuning technology and uses the same Vizio IQ Active IQ processor as more expensive models from previous years.

Again, we have support for tri-band Wi-Fi 6E, Dolby Vision HDR, HDR10, and HDR10+ content, not to mention three HDMI 2.1 ports on each model. And yes, these still pack the same AMD FreeSync VRR, HGiG, and DolbyVision auto gaming as the more expensive Quantum X.

The Vizio M-Series Quantum 6 is available in more sizes, too. Those being 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 70-inch, and 75-inch screen sizes, with the smallest M43Q6-K starting at $349.

V-Series (Midrange Value line)

For starters, every 2023 V-Series model will come with a 4K resolution and a powerful upscaling engine for the best experience. Then, as we said earlier, you’ll still get full-array backlighting, HDR10 and 10+, Dolby Vision, and everything else we’ve come to expect from the S-Series.

One thing Vizio was quick to note was how the V-Series is getting an improved look with a sleek thin-frame design. This basically means the frame and bezel are smaller than ever, giving each TV set a modern, stylish look. Plus, this line still gets Wi-Fi 6E, allowing for stunning 4K video streaming.

Then, considering the V-Series is popular with gamers, Vizio didn’t leave those goodies out either. Each V-Series TV offers ultra-low input lag, variable refresh rates, Dolby Vision Auto Gaming, Dolby Audio, DTS:X and Virtual:X, and three HDMI 2.1 ports with eARC.

As a comparison, the 2021 lineup only offered AMD FreeSync on the more expensive Vizio V6 line and not the V5, but for 2023, they both have it.

The new V-Series comes in the usual 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 58-inch, 65-inch, 70-inch, and 75-inch screen sizes. They’ll be available from July 19th with a starting price of $289.

D Series (Entry Level)

And last but not least is the newly redesigned, sleeker, better Vizio D-Series for 2023. For those unaware, the D-Series is Vizio’s insanely affordable smart TVs that are perfect for anyone and everyone.

The D-Series is a perfect entry-level TV to throw in a dorm room, desk, or even spare bedroom. The entire range offers full HD resolutions, even with smaller sizes, not to mention excellent performance without breaking the bank.

You’ll enjoy a full-array backlit screen with plenty of features, and every model even has Vizio’s Bluetooth Voice Remote. More importantly, the D-Series now offers AMD FreeSync variable refresh rates, HDR Gaming through HDMI, and Auto Game mode. Basically, as we said earlier, you’re getting features from more expensive lineups trickling down to TVs with a more attractive price.

Like the V-Series, the entire D lineup has the same stunning new Thinframe design, so it’s almost all TV, with as little bezel as possible. The 2023 Vizio D-Series come in 24-inch, 32-inch, 40-inch, and 43-inch screen sizes, starting at $159.

Vizio’s entire TV collection for 2023 goes on sale starting July 19th, and you can find one at Best Buy, Sam’s Club, Walmart, and select online retailers.
