Vizio’s Best 2018 Inch 4K HDR TVs Just Got A Huge Price Drop (but with a catch)

The Vizio P-Series Quantum 4K HDR LCD TV is one of the best that the company has ever created and is also one of the single most absolutely impressive 4K LCD HDR TVs made since 2018. We really mean this: The Quantum isn’t at all like Vizio’s ordinary (but also excellent) 4K HDR P-Series TVs and in terms of peak brightness, contrast, sheer color performance and the quality of its local dimming/full-array LED backlighting, it simply blows virtually every other LCD 4K TV from any of the 2018 models completely out of the water. The Quantum performs so well that we suspect it will continue to outshine even most 2019 ultra HD TVs we’re expecting to review in the next few months.

This is the basic stuff you should know about this knockout television before you see the following deal, because it puts the discount price being listed for it into some perspective even with the catch that’s included.

Right now Amazon is selling both the 65 inch Quantum P-Series and 75 inch regular P-Series (which is still a stunningly good HDR 4K TV for heavily discounted prices that offer hundreds in real, recent savings. The 65 inch model has had $400 knocked off its regular retail price and is going for $1,399.99, and the gigantic 75 inch edition is selling for the exact same price, $1,399. Again, you can go for either one and they’ll cost exactly the same. The obvious answer with the two choices in this deal seems to be the 65 inch edition because it’s a superior performer as a Quantum TV but in case that’s just a bit too small for your tastes or space, the 75 incher is still an excellent performer across the board as one of Vizio’s ordinary P-Series TV models. we’re going to describe those in detail below.

When we said that the P-Series Quantum is one insanely good 4K HDR LCD TV, we truly meant it. This model performs like almost nothing else. It’s peak brightness shoots well above 2000 nits, making it the single brightest 4K LCD TV released to-date (and this includes what we’ve seen of early 2019 TV models).

Beyond the above, the P-Series Quantum offers stunningly good full-array LED backlight powered local dimming for some insanely good contrast and deep black levels. Its contrast ratio is in fact the second highest we’ve ever seen in a 4K TV, beaten only by Samsung’s far more expensive 2018 Q9F flagship 4K TV. In every single other major metric of display performance the P-Series Quantum models perform almost as incredibly. Their delivery of full HDR color is simply stunning and their motion handling is almost second to none. In simple terms, this TV at this price is one fantastic deal for what it delivers.

As for the 75 inch P-Series edition, though it doesn’t quite match the brightness and black level/contrast specs of the smaller Quantum version, it’s still one of the best 4K HDR LCD TVs you can find at the price it sells for and along with full-array LED backlighting and local dimming, it offers a whole list of other premium specs, including full HDR support.

So then what’s the catch that the title of this post refers to? Simply this: Both the 65 inch Quantum edition and the 75 inch regular P-Series editions being listed here in this limited offer are refurbished models. This means that they’re like new and fully restored, but not quite 100% new.

We’ve explained before about the potential hazards of buying a refurbished 4K TV here, but in this particular case, the deal comes with backing by Amazon itself and does include a 3 month warranty. That’s not exactly ideal, true, but it does give some room for serious use-testing of either of these TVs to make sure they work fine. So long as nothing goes wrong, what you’ll get is a truly ultra-premium spectacularly high level of 4K HDR TV quality for a remarkably low price.

Here are the deals for the 65 and 75 inch editions and based on the sheer performance of the Vizio P-Series Quantum UHD TV, the 65 inch Quantum version is definitely worth considering

    Ummm…there the same price because they’re NOT the same TV. The 65″ is the P Quantum (the only available size in 2018). The 75″ is the standard P Series (ie not quantum). Still a great tv. But the 65″ Quantum is clearly on a different level.

    Vizio didn’t make the P-Series Quantum in 75″ for 2018, it was available in 65″ only. The 75″ is the same price as it is the regular P-Series, and not P-Series Quantum.

    Vizio’s largest quantum dot offering for 2018 was 65,” to my best recollection, and their 75″ P75-F1 is a standard FALD set which likely explains the lack of a price difference.

    Please double check the information that you have posted in this story. Vizio did not make a 75″ P-Series Quantum in 2018, they will be for 2019 though. The only TV that is/can be a Quantum is the 65″, the 75″ is a standard P-Series.

    75 8nch kidel you listed is not the quantum model. It is the regular p series (p75-f1). There is no 75 inch of the p series quantum until the 2019 model that appeared at ces goes on sale. Vizio only released a 65 inch size quantum TV in 2018.

    The 75″ is not the Quantum model just the 65″, maybe that’s why they’re the same price.
