Vizio 48” SmartCast E-Series Full-Array LED 4K Ultra HD Home Theater TV
A WiFi-equipped TV designed to streamline your entertainment center, this Vizio model provides access to online streaming platforms and Chrome apps as it cuts down on clutter by utilizing your smartphone as its remote control. It also doesn’t hurt that the TV’s display has been tinkered to perfection, with its top-of-the-line 4K UHD resolution backed by 10 Active LED Zones.
Smarter Than Your Average Smart TV
Vizio SmartCast TVs come integrated with Google Cast, a Smart TV interface that functions in much the same fashion as Google Chromecast. This technology not only offers you access to a plethora of online streaming apps—Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora—but also the ability to use Chrome apps like Hangouts or even mirror your Android device onscreen. Better yet, the TV is linked with the free Smartcast app, which turns your smartphone or tablet into a remote control and media browser.
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.
