One of the main reasons why i’ve struggled to try one out they are so crazy, expensive on phones, oled is the gold standard, but on tvs there are a few problems like the case of burnin, which you don’t really deal with on phones because of tricks like Pixel shifting, and also because the average consumer doesn’t hold on to a phone for seven to eight years, like the owner of a tv will for those prices, might as well just get an lcd until the technology matures right. Well, what happens when a company undercuts the competition so well with the price of their oled, that it even makes you question if you would rather get this over an led lcd? This is the 65 inch vizio oled matched with their latest elevate, sound bar, a total package. That is not really what i’d call affordable. Unless you try to compare the setup with what it would cost you from any other brand vizio is mostly known for their affordable tv. So the biggest question is: how well can they handle the big leagues, i’m, jaime rivera with pocket now and let’s dive in? I guess the first question should be: why buy an oled and the easiest answer is to actually respond with another question: do you like the screen on your smartphone? Most smartphones today have evolved almost exclusively to oled technology, even if it’s a tad more expensive, it offers the benefits of incredible contrast ratios the deepest black color reproduction you can ask for, since the pixels actually turn off and also colors are crazy.
Good power efficiencies are still debatable, but the technology is so thin that it allows for the bezel less and thin frenzy we’ve seen in current times. So imagine all of those principles applied to a tv. It actually led to one of the most insane unboxing experiences that i’ve ever had with one to start. The box is a lot bigger than what you’re getting and it’s for a reason get some help doing this, as you should not hold this tv by the corners. The tv even comes with a cardboard screen protector, reminding you of this repeatedly and then you spend a great deal of time: removing plastic around plastic around plastic, guys. The tv even comes with a screen protector like any phone, that i also recommend that you remove to avoid any glare or reflection. I think one of the coolest parts about going oled is that this tv actually looks like if it’s from the future thickness on this panel is measured in millimeters, not in inches, though it does get thicker at the bottom, because you need to fit the speakers in The port somewhere i mean even the branding – is only found at the back, and then there are a ton of cool tricks to hide the. I o. This tv has 4 hdmi 2.1 ports for the latest gaming experiences. One usb port optical audio out, which i use for the soundbar, your typical standard audio out and it supports wi fi bluetooth, like you name it, this tv has got it once you set up your ports, you can hide them on the inner covers, and these close Everything up so nothing can be shown from behind, though i don’t recommend that you do this.
If you plan to mount this tv on the wall, the second is just the viewing experience. There’S no talk about local dimming or any of that here. Oled is simple. Black means pixels turn off. So, if you’re, in a dark scenario, you won’t have to deal with any sort of black light, bleed anywhere. Color is about individual pixels and i also have to praise vizio for their color calibration. Usually oleds tend to oversaturate content, and yet this one manages to provide inky accurate colors, with contrast, that’s as good as it gets, and really the only place where you might have something to complain about is when the tv reproduces any color in between black and full Color, as i find it to be a bit too dark for my taste, you can tweak the settings in case you’d prefer more brightness and sure there’s also support for 10 and even dolby vision to help out with that. If you have the content, i also have to praise vizio for how their design language actually talks with the rest of their products, which is seriously how everything should be. If you notice the base of this tv, the elevate sound bar actually fits snug below it. So, honestly, my advice is that you don’t really experiment with any other brand of sound bars. If you plan to get this tv that said for its price, this would actually be the first tv where i would recommend that you actually get a sound bar audio quality.
Is not great i’d call it flat at most, and i think it might have to do with the speakers firing to the back instead of down, like most other tvs at its price range. This is not to say that it’s bad but i’d call it this tv’s. Weakest point: my experience with the elevate sound bar was so good that i actually had to disconnect the woofer. I live in a second floor with hardwood floors. The neighbors actually complained, it’s an 8 inch driver. The sound is just insane if you don’t have any of these problems. It is the coolest thing to be able to place the woofer wherever you want, because it’s wireless connect, the two surround speakers and then just let dolby atmos do the talking it’s crazy good. That said, the way it elevates to enhance content depends on the content. Supporting it. This sound bar is definitely an a plus recommendation. Even if you don’t get this tv, you have to try it it’s, probably the best one that i’ve ever tested. As for the rest of the experience, i’m gon na call it great and okay, we already discussed image, quality and sound quality, but the thing that i wish that vizio did a little better and just slightly better is scaling like most modern 4k tvs, there’s an iq Processor built in to handle this and it’s okay, but i wouldn’t call it my favorite i’ve, seen tvs in the hundreds of dollars category doing slightly better in handling more raid detail and even pixelation, which is usually a result of how the tv handles motion this one Is actually capable of 120 hertz, which does fantastic with native content but which can fumble every now and then with streaming it’s honestly kind of odd.
It might need probably a software update, because there are cases when you connect something like a 1080p nintendo switch where it scales it, as well as every other high end tv that i’ve tested again. I wouldn’t call this my favorite tv for gaming and complex scenarios, but it’s not bad by any means, i mean you won’t, even notice any issues with legacy consoles or even the switch now. Another thing where i’m slightly mixed with this tv is the user interface. I definitely have the praise that it supports both google casting and apple’s airplay too i’m. Also gon na praise the broad selection of applications and the fact that you can use this tv as an apple tv which can also serve for homekit and save you. A few extra bucks really where i’m mixed is in this whole approach of yanking you out of your content. If you want to switch from one service to the next, then i get it only samsung and lg tvs that are far more expensive. Don’T do this. So, oh well, the remote is what i’d call the essence of minimalism by the way it’s got a few shortcuts at the top navigation controls in the middle and some very small number of buttons below, since a lot of people are cutting the cord. The problem is that there is no voice activation you’ll actually have to connect the smart speaker to it. If you want to achieve that functionality, which is actually fairly easy and then as for the elephant in the room, the question you’ve been wanting for me to answer: can you get burning with this tv? The short answer is you? Can the long answer is? It really depends and it’s actually not easy to achieve.
Vizio has implemented the typical pixel shifting approach that smartphone oems provide, which is great but has not proven to be entirely perfect. If you ask any uber driver how the screen on their phone is, after using google maps all day for a couple of years as an alternative, if you notice that your tv goes blank just out of the blue, because you didn’t touch the control at any point. In the home menu don’t worry it’s perfectly fine that’s, just one of the measures that the tv has to avoid any extra exposure that’s unnecessary. I honestly will take that functionality for the price just to protect my investment. I think it’s okay, it’s just really aggressive about it. Now, where i say that it depends as if you’re a heavy sports, watcher, gamer or news watcher, where tickers are permanent during the content play. Sadly, these elements might actually beat this tv in leaving content burned in over time. To conclude, let’s, do the exercise again go back online and check what it costs for you to buy a 55 or 65 inch oled from any other company that’s, not vizio. I mean hey: if you’re able to buy an lg or a sony oled, then this tv is definitely not for you, but then, if you’re an average consumer looking to try an oled, you demand color accuracy and great contrast. You want a great user experience that supports google and apple services. You want to try something new as an alternative to led lcds in the market.
Then this tv is for you vizio 65 inch. Oled is what i’d like to call the best oled for the rest of us, which is actually most people it won’t break the bank it’ll deliver the image quality you’d, expect for the price and it’s a great introduction into what life with an oled is like. So far, it’s not perfect, but the price is so crazy good. I have no problem in recommending it and also that vizio elevates sound bar yeah. I would recommend you get that thing with or without this tv.
