Vizio M557-G0 M-Series Quantum 55-inch 4K HDR smart TV

Has 4K resolutions and support for HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG content. Also has a 120 Hz refresh rate augmented by Clear Action 360 tech. Has Chromecast and AirPlay 2 and Vizio's WatchFree includes free live TV. 16 Local Dimming Zones.

The M Series Quantum has a ton of smart functionality. For one thing, there's a Chromecast built in so you can access all your favorite streaming apps, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime VIdeo, and others. Vizio even has its own service called WatchFree that gives you access to over 150 channels with free TV... and that includes live TV like news and sports.

Plus, it works with Apple AirPlay so you can use your Apple device to wirelessly mirror content like web sites and presentations. Use your voice to control the TV with Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple's Siri. Do even more with Apple HomeKit, controlling the TV from your Apple Home app.

The TV itself has 4K resolution combined with Vizio's Quantum color that gives you even more colors than other 4K TVs. It also has 600 nits of brightness, which makes it ultra bright and pairs well with the TV's HDR support, which includes Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG content. You'll get a wide spectrum of high detail and color, and the 90 local dimming zones provide stunning depth and contrast.

Read about CordCutter's review of a similar Vizio M Series Quantum TV earlier this year. They gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and called it "An everyman's 2019 TV at an everyman's price."
