VIZIO 2015 M-Series 4K TVs Start at $599

by Fox Van Allen on April 13, 2015

Vizio M-Series 2015 4K TV w/NetflixUltra high-definition television technology has just gotten a whole lot more affordable. Today, U.S.-based television manufacturer Vizio officially announced the launch of its new 2015 M Series 4K televisions, which includes a 43-inch model with a stunningly low MSRP of $599.99.

There’s more to the VIZIO M Series than having four times the resolution of standard HD at a great price. Each offers a full smart TV experience backed by dual-band Wi-Fi and a V6 six-core processor. Pictures look beautiful thanks to full-array local LED backlighting, which promises high contrast and deeper black colors. Refresh rates start at “120Hz effective” for 55-inch and smaller models; televisions that are 60 inches or larger boast a “240Hz effective” rate, good for watching sports and other scenes with fast action.

The 43” model costs just $599.99; you can upgrade all the way up to a 55” model and still pay less than a thousand ($999.99). For larger rooms, the M-Series runs all the way up to 80” ($3,999). The 43-, 55- and 60-inch M-Series televisions are available now at your favorite big box retailers; more sizes will be available by the end of May. 

The prices on these televisions sure are right, but before you buy one, it’s important to consider whether or not your home’s data connection is capable of supporting a 4K TV. You’ll need data speeds of at least 15Mbps to support streaming in UHD resolution over services like Netflix or Amazon. This may require you to upgrade your cable package or switch providers entirely. It’s also worth noting that there’s only a handful of programming currently available in 4K – you may need to wait a year or two for the technology to become more widespread.

You can learn more about the VIZIO M-Series 4K televisions by visiting the company’s website or watch the short promotional video below. Confused by all the terms and types of 4K televisions on the market? Don’t be – our own Stewart Wolpin recently compared the new 4K UHD TV tech on the market to declare a winner.
