Vizio D Series (2017) TV Review
One of our favorite budget TVs isn't a safe bet in 2017
Because the 2017 D Series doesn't have any HDR playback abilities (just like last year's), all of our testing and calibrating was conducted using dark room SDR standards. I tested contrast, viewing angle, halation/loading, and the usual suite of CalMan 5/ISF Workflow tests (RGB emphasis, color gamut coverage, etc.). As noted on the front page, most of these errors can be remedied during calibration, but I also found that our 55-inch D Series simply couldn't entirely cover the rec.709 color space no matter how the CMS was tweaked and fiddled with.
Pre- and post-calibration results and settings are side-by-side, below.
