Is It Worth It?: Vizio's P-series 4K TVs have been hotly anticipated for quite some time. And while CNET says this TV isn't the holy grail of affordable 4K HDTVs, it does have plenty of things going for it, such as full-array local dimming, deep black levels, excellent contrast, among the lowest input lags ever tested, and excellent connectivity. The TV features a 3840x2160 native resolution, 240Hz refresh rate, full-array LED backlight, 802.11ac wireless, Smart TV (with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and other Vizio Internet apps), 2-sided remote with backlit QWERTY keyboard, and five 4K-compatible HDMI inputs.
