VIZIO M50-E1

VIZIO displays are known for their value as well as performance, and their latest SmartCast M-Series (2017) is definitely no slouch, touted as the 'most colorful M-Series ever'. We recently got the chance to review the M50-E1, a 50" panel that can not only display HDR (High Dynamic Range) content, but has Google Chromecast built-in, along with Google Home compatibility. For example, you'll be able to send Netflix content directly from your phone using this feature, while an onscreen menu, called Smartcast TV, enables users to launch apps using the standard on-screen approach. Best of all, you can pick one up for $499 for Black Friday here now. Continue reading for our full review of the display, which was generously provided to us for free by VIZIO.
