Walmart currently offers the VIZIO MQ8 55-inch 4K HDR AirPlay 2 Smart TV for $499.99 shipped. Down from its usual $550 going rate, today’s offer amounts to only the second discount to date, comes within $2 of our previous mention, and delivers $52 in savings. VIZIO’s latest M-Series TV packs 55-inches of 4K picture to your setup complete with active full array dimming, Dolby Vision, and gaming-focused features like variable refresh rate. Alongside its built-in access to various streaming services, you’ll be able to count on AirPlay 2 and HomeKit control, as well as Chromecast integration and Alexa support. Plus, there’s four HDMI ports to complete the package with support for the new 2.1 standard. Rated 4.5/5 stars from over 1,400 customers. More details below.
Save even more when you go with this previous-generation VIZIO MQ6 TV at $449 instead. This model delivers a similar 55-inch 4K panel, but ditches the variable refresh rate technology noted above, meaning it won’t quite be as good for PS5 or Xbox Series X console gaming. You’ll only find three HDMI ports on this one, as well. A 4.4/5 star rating from over 1,395 customers completes the package.
Then go hit up our home theater guide for plenty of other ways to elevate the movie watching experience. You’ll still find a collection sound bar systems on sale from $69, as well as our recent Tested with 9to5Toys review of BenQ’s GS2 Portable AirPlay 2 Projector.
