First Look: VIZIO's Stylish, Budget TV is a Performer (Video)

The Good: The Vizio M-series is an excellent value with great design and a snappy picture; it has excellent shadow detail, fairly deep black levels, and excellent processing; and its smart TV access has been improved.

The Bad: It doesn't have as deep a black level as a plasma; the TV suffers from a slight red push; it has a reflective screen; Yahoo apps aren't very slick; and the remote sensor isn't very responsive.

The Bottom Line: The Vizio M-series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price.
