  • 1Description

Enjoy UHD content with enhanced contrast with the VIZIO M-Series 50"-Class 4K SmartCast HDR LED Home Theater Display. Its 32 active LED zones will dim in places where the image is supposed to appear dark to provide the effect of an enhanced contrast ratio. The Clear Action rate of 360 will smooth out the blur associated with fast-moving objects.

The M-Series has SmartCast built-in, allowing you to cast apps directly from your compatible smart device to the display via Wi-Fi. Its four HDMI ports provide connection to HD and UHD devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite boxes, gaming systems, and more. It also features two USB ports for connecting portable drives. The display includes an Android touchscreen remote with a wireless charger and a standard IR remote.

Note: This is a tuner-free display. If you use an external antenna to watch local over-the-air broadcast TV signals, a TV tuner is required and sold separately.

Local Dimming
The M-Series raises the bar with 32  Active LED Zones. This dynamically adjusts your screen's backlight to adapt to the on-screen content to deliver enhanced contrast levels, details, and black levels.

    VIZIO M50-D1 reviews

    M-Series 50"-Class 4K SmartCast HDR LED Home Theater Display is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't like Vizio but I love this TV I wanted the most bang for my buck and the Vizio M Series delivers, big time. I don't think there's another 4K, 50 TV out there of comparable quality and specs for under $1,000. The picture takes some fiddling to get right, but it's worth the effort. Contrast is amazing. Black levels are deep. Color is rich. Detail is incredible. I purchased a Vizio 5 years ago and it was absolute garbage so I returned it and vowed to never own another. But when looking for a bigger 4K TV I researched countless website and pro reviews and all of them said the same thing: forget what you think about Vizio and give their M-Series a try. I'm so glad I did. (The CNET review sealed the deal for me.) My only complaints would be: 1) the simple remote is too simple; 2) the tablet remote runs Android, is slow as molasses and crashes constantly (but you can download the app on your iOS or premium Android devices and you'll be fine); 3) it's thicker than high-end LEDs; and 4) the case is cheap plastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price Remarkably good for not too much $. Some glitchiness in tablet interface, but not worse than Apple TV, for example. Price/quality is very good, indeed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing High-End Features, Without The High Price! VIZIO sent me this display in exchange for a review. If you've been looking to purchase a Smart TV, there's no smarter choice than the VIZIO M50-D1 SmartCast Home Theater Display. Unlike other TVs which have popular apps (Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc) built into the TV, the VIZIO M50-D1 takes a different approach entirely, building Google Cast support into each set. This allows you to stream your favorite content from 1000+ apps right to the big screen using the included 6 Android Tablet Remote! In addition, this set features 4K Ultra HD resolution, High Dynamic Range w/ Dolby Vision support, and full-array LED backlighting with up to 64 active LED zones. How they are able to offer such a feature-packed TV for $849 (or less, depending on where you purchase it from) is beyond me, but I'm not complaining. The picture quality is great (once you properly calibrate it), Google Cast is a game changer, and UHD 4K stuff looks incredible. The audio is adequate given the TV's thin profile, but a sound bar definitely helps. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this set, and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quality TV without breaking the bank!
