What experts didn't like
Viewing angles could be slightly better and the sound could also be improved.
- BestReviews
It has worse picture than Vizio's E series TVs. 4K resolution and HDR don't deliver a substantial improvement in image quality.
- CNET
Remote lags at times and the buttons are loud. The flashing LED indicator can be distracting.
