Just in time for the holiday season, VIZIO has released their new M50-D1 SmartCast Home Theater Display with High Dynamic Range and Dolby Vision support. This product was provided by VIZIO in exchange for posting this review but I really fell in love with this TV. The all-new VIZIO SmartCast™ M-Series™ Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display™ is part of the VIZIO SmartCast collection with Google Cast built-in, the M-Series features a powerful 6” Android™ tablet remote, and stunning picture of High Dynamic Range
The image quality is out of this world with advanced picture technologies such as Ultra HD and High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision support. The collection also boasts Full-Array LED backlighting with up to 64 Active LED Zones® that render images with incredible detail, depth and contrast.
The new depth and contrast that the VIZIO provides offers amazingly clear picture with the enriched brightness and vibrance of VIZIO HDR1.
Long are the days where you have a remote that doesn’t help much. VIZIO SmartCast™ brings together your favorite entertainment into one simple experience. Discover, cast and control TV shows, movies, music and more on your M-Series Display from your VIZIO SmartCast™ Tablet Remote.
The powerful Android Tablet Remote allows you to browse and play content with simple tap, swipe and voice-based controls using the VIZIO SmartCast app that’s pre-installed. The 6″ Android tablet remote is included in every VIZIO SmartCast M-Series Ultra HD Home Theater Display. You can also control your TV from the SmartCast app that you download to your phone! Yes, you read that right! You can download the VIZIO SmartCast App to turn your own smartphone or tablet into a powerful remote.
I really love the SmartCast feature. All VIZIO SmartCast™ products have Google Cast™ built-in – the same technology behind Chromecast – which allows you to cast your favorite content from your phone to your TV / Display or speakers. Mirror your Android™ phone screen or Google chrome browser. It is very easy to use.
All in all, this is an amazing collection and if you are looking to do a little holiday shopping for yourself, we highly suggest checking out the VIZIO SmartCast™ M-Series™.
The collection starts at an MSRP of $849.99 for the 50” class size and is available in sizes as large as 80” class size. Keep an eye on their website though because it looks like there may be a few sales going on.
