Vizio's OLED Is the Perfect TV if You Want Quality on a Budget

Catie Keck

If you’ve been hoping to upgrade your old TV for an OLED model but don’t want to spend a fortune for a decently sized display, Vizio’s OLED is the TV for you.

For perfect blacks while watching movies or TV, you probably want an OLED. The OLED display to buy last year was the LG CX (OLED65CXPUA). But even with steep discounts on that TV right now, you’re looking at somewhere in the ballpark of $2,200 for the 65-inch version at the time of this writing. The same size display in Vizio’s OLED, meanwhile, will set you back about $1,800. The difference of $400 may not seem like a huge leap for some folks, but it may be for others. And that number also doesn’t take into account whatever else you need for your home entertainment setup, be that a soundbar or surround or even a streaming device with your preferred OS (both LG and Vizio run on their own proprietary OSes, neither of which are my favorite).

There are certainly some trade-offs between these two—we’ll talk about those in greater detail below—but if you’re looking for an OLED option that won’t cost you an arm, a leg, and potentially your firstborn child, the Vizio OLED is a fantastic value for the price.
