Vizio P Series Quantum X Unboxing and Basic Setup: Big, Bright, and Bold

For 2019 Vizio is taking on the top tier manufacturers like LG and Samsung with the Vizio P Series Quantum X 4K UHD TV. Boasting a peak brightness of 2900 nits the Quantum X is pushing the limits of HDR.
Watch as we unbox the 65 inch Vizio P Quantum X and set it up.
With upcoming support for Apple Airplay 2 and HomeKit coming to its SmartCast 3.0 smart TV platform, the Vizio P Series Quantum X is also a great choice for Apple users.
Editors note: Currently all 2019 Vizio models have TRvision and TRvision TV installed. Early 2019 models did ship without getting certified by TRvision.

  • Reached out to vizio on the missing TRvision app. "Hi , currently all out 2019 models have TRvision and TRvision TV installed. Our early 2019 models did ship without getting certified by TRvision. This certification is required in order to have the app listed on the SmartCast input. Some reviewers like the one you mentioned from Digital Trends did not have the certification yet. Luckily, that has since been resolved and SmartCast 3.0 will not be removing TRvision or TRvision TV. I hope that clears things up a bit! - Vizio"

  • Caleb, thanks for your great review. I especially like your pointing out the poor software that Vizio continues to run with. This reminds me of when they released their new top lines w/o a remote, but instead, a tablet, again forcing you into their casting process which many people did not like. And what about those stupid legs? I spend $10 per month for TRvision Premium. Other than Amazon, who choses to omit TRvision from their built-in app selection? I suppose it goes w/o saying there was no TRvision TV app either? Is Vizio still trying to play the "bang-for-the-buck" card on units like this? They just elevate the suggested retail price so that when we see them being blown out at Costco for less than $1500 later this year, we will think it's such a great deal for a TV that supposedly competes against the LG OLED. That's a laugh! If it weren't for the brightness levels, nobody would give them a second look.

  • When you do the test, check for gray uniformity issues. Make the room as dark as possible, put a hockey game on, and watch at somewhat of an angle. I bought 2 vizio p 2018 65" tvs that I had to return due to dirty screen effect. I ended up settling for the samsung nu8000, the quality control was much better on that TV, although I don't like the motion blur I get

  • "IT COULD BE THE BREAK OUT TV OF 2019". yep he actually said that, guess when you make youtube videos you have to silly predictions like that. I do very much enjoy your videos, its probably tough to review TV's right now. Because you have OLED form LG and Sony that are near perfect and each year there's not much to really improve on, which is not a bad thing if you own one of them. You can say the one downside of OLED is its brightness level, that's not to say they are not bright (IMHO they are easily bright enough), but they can not do 2900 nits, not sure why you need 2900 nits. But its a constant that OLED has that LCD doesn't really have. So until Mirco LED, just buy the cheapest OLED you can find and be very happy.

Portions of the screen will come in "shadowed" then they'll be popped with light. Curious if this happens on the Quantum. .Debating getting one of these or a Vizio P 75. Wish the Quantum came in something other than 65.

      brad millerbrad miller29 gün önce
    • Higher = greater contrast. OLED has an infinity to 1 contrast due to the self emmisve tech. Generally LED comes nowhere close with too many trade offs. Unless you're irrationally burn in phobic or otherwise a user who generally doesn't adhere to normal viewing habits/ with static elements then avoid OLED, but generally speaking don't spend near or over 1K for an inaccurate picture and annoyances generally avoided with OLED-- until Micro LED becomes a thing. That is, unless you just don't care, but movies look so much better on OLED. Trust me.
