Vizio SmartCast E-Series 65” 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model)
Whether you’re watching live sports or playing video games, this LED TV delivers a cinema-like viewing experience thanks to stunningly sharp 4K Ultra HD resolution. Additionally, the TV’s built-in Chromecast enables you to stream on-demand content, and the SmartCast mobile app lets you control playback and mirror content from your smartphone.
Smart TV: Entertainment on Demand
Stream a movie rather than walking to a Redbox, or binge on your favorite TV shows online. This Smart TV’s built-in WiFi and preloaded apps expand your entertainment options without the clutter of cables and external streaming devices. Apps include Netflix, HBO Now, and YouTube.
Rich, Cinematic Picture
4K Ultra HD resolution supports an almost uncannily realistic picture. 4K refers to Ultra HD’s more than 8 million pixels—about four times as many as 1080p Full HD resolution—which saturate the display so completely that images retain their lifelike detail regardless of how close or far you are from the screen. This pixel density also supports heightened picture quality for non-4K content.
Clear Action, Minimal Blur
The 120Hz refresh rate delivers a picture that’s smooth and easy to follow by completely rebuilding it 120 times per second. This virtually eliminates blur, preserving a high level of detail even in fast-action entertainment such as action movies and live sports.
Enhanced Brightness and Depth
LEDs boost brightness, creating a brilliant picture that’s easy to see whether you’re curled up for a late movie or getting ready for a noon kickoff. Striking black and white levels give images more pop, contribute to a more realistic sense of depth, and amplify shadows and other lighting effects. LEDs also consume little power, making them more energy efficient than other forms of display lighting.
HDMI and USB: Connect to More Content
An HDMI port connects high-definition components such as a Blu-ray player, cable box, or Roku Streaming Stick directly to your HDTV. USB input pushes your TV’s connectivity even further, letting you do things such as view photos or listen to music saved on thumb drives, digital cameras, and other USB sources.

Launching in 2002, when rival companies had been selling TVs for decades, Vizio may be a relative newcomer to the TV market, but it hit the ground running. By 2007, it sold the most LCD TVs in America. Its runaway success is thanks in large part to its bread-and-butter HDTV, the LED-backlit 1080p set that can be found in most living rooms. Yet the company also takes chances on the latest technologies. In 2015, for instance, it launched what is arguably one of the most high-end sets ever produced—the $130,000 Reference Series, a 120” 4K set with support for more than one billion colors and integrated 5.1-channel surround sound. While the hefty price tag will deter most TV shoppers, Vizio will inevitably find a way to pack the cutting-edge technologies into a more consumer-friendly set—the approach to TV-making that brought it success in the first place.
