Originally Reviewed on June 22nd, 2014

Up for Review: Vizio M652I-B2 LED HDTV.

The M652I-B2 comes as an updated version of the previous year’s model. Several changes have been done to the picture quality and with further integration of smart features. A powerful addition to this year’s release is a full array LED backlighting resulting in an enormous effect on the picture quality. This has led to the exceptional increase in contrast levels and providing a value that can be compared to some of the leading manufacturers in the market. Vizio has beneficially got rid of a 3D feature as it has been realized to be more bulky and unwanted for household entertainment. 3D is best served in theatres and big silver screens and 2D at home gives you more flexibility to move around and have a comfortable TV time. Majority of models in 2014 from Vizio lack a 3D feature and this also has beneficially contributed to a reduction in the price tag. Alternatively, Vizio has enhanced the Vizio Internet Apps platform to deliver a more intuitive interface. In lines with modern home entertainment demands, an internet platform substantially increases the power and value of a TV. The M652I-B2 is available under a price tag of $1,500 and will be a worthy buy for a value oriented customer.

Vizio M652I-B2 Features and Specifications:

  • Display Screen Type: LED
  • Panel Resolution: 1920 x 1080

The M652I-B2 seems to be a revelation when we talk about the picture quality. As compared to the last year’s release, this TV has more enhanced black levels and plenty of whites. This consequently leads to more shadow details and realistic imagery. Further, Active Pixel Tuning helps the contrast at higher dark and bright levels. Image processing features have done more harm than good in most products, but the M652I-B2 makes an interesting integration. The sharpness details of this TV can even be compared to other products like Samsung and Sony. For hose following modern LEDs closely, the Full Array LED Backlighting with 32 zones of illumination will be a huge addition. Further, the TV has a 240 Hz refresh rate and technologies like Active Pixel Tuning and Clear Action Panel resulting is a smooth broadcast regardless of the live judders. The backlight scheme also helps with fast action movies and sports broadcasts. However, we would recommend these to be disabled at other times.

The overall quality of picture will depend on the picture mode selected by the user and to your advantage there are many of them. In the initial setup, there would be a bit of bumping herein the TV will be doing its own adjustments and soon you will be amazed by the smoothness, color clarity and brightness. The gaming mode is another interesting addition and will keep the teens hooked.
Other important features of the Vizio M652I-B2 include 4 HDMI ports and obviously the Vizio Internet Apps platform. The M652I-B2 is certainly a well made TV and gives few reasons for a customer to look for alternatives. gives Vizio M652I-B2 4/5 stars.
