Vizio Unveils Budget D-Series 4K Lineup

Not too long ago, the term "4K" evoked gorgeous image quality but high-priced TVs and little content you'd actually want to watch. Now, there's a wide variety of 4K (sometimes known as Ultra HD) streaming shows and movies from the likes of Amazon and Netflix, and as of today, a new lineup of cheap Vizios on which to watch them.

The Vizio D-series makes up part of the company's budget LED offering, and it's been updated for 2017 with a smattering of 4K models. The most expensive tops out at $899, which gets you a 65-inch 4K display. Other 4K sets include a 55-inch for $569, a 50-inch for $499, and a 43-inch for $419.

If you don't care about Ultra HD, you can pick up a D-series model for even cheaper, including a 39-inch version for $299, which is among the cheapest sets of that size you can buy. It's an even better deal when you consider that all the D-series models have Vizio's smart TV platform built in, which offers access to Netflix and other streaming apps.

An octa-core processor and 802.11ac Wi-Fi enable 4K streaming on supported models, or, if you don't have a strong enough internet connection, the sets also include HDMI ports capable of playback from 4K-enabled Blu-ray players.

The 2017 D-Series collection is available now from Vizio's website and will be arriving soon at retailers like Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, and Best Buy.

Before you pull the trigger, though, know that Vizio's reputation for quality TVs at wallet-friendly prices was soured somewhat last month when the company admitted to collecting viewing data from 11 million smart TVs without their owners' consent. Vizio, which is now owned by Chinese tech giant LeEco, agreed to pay a $2.2 million penalty, prominently disclose its data collection and sharing practices, and obtain permission from owners if it wants to track them in the future.
