The Vizio M series of TVs have been a very popular mid-range budget TV option for a few years now. Today we’re gonna take a look at the 2020Vizio M8 Quantum to see how it compares to last year’s M series. Vizio M8 Series Quantum

Today we’re going to be taking a look at the M8, which is only available at certain retailers and has a higher peak brightness, and slightly more local dimming zones than while we’ve already purchased the VizioM7 as well,

then move on to the picture quality. Then we’ll look at the motion handling, input lag, and sound. Throughout the review,

I’ll be comparing it to last year’s 2019 M8 Quantum, as well as this year’s Hisense H8G, another very popular budget mid-range TV. If you’d like to skip straight to our test results, then see the links in the description below.

We bought the 65” version, but it’s available in a smaller 55” model. be sure to let us know if there’s anything that doesn’t correspond to our review. Overall the 2020 M8 Quantum looks essentially identical to last year’s model, and you’d be hard-pressed to tell a difference by looking at the two.

It has very slim bezels all around the screen, and the TV itself isn’t very thick, so it shouldn’t stick out too much should you wall-mount it. The wide-set feet do a good job at supporting with a little wobble, and

the TV is made from a mix of plastic and metal, which is always nice toThat being said, there is a bit of flex around the inputs, but it isn’t too bad and the TV feels decently well-built overall. Speaking of inputs, the 2020 M8 has the same inputs laid out in the same places as last year’s model.

The inputs are split up with some facing downwards, and some facing to the side, making them easier to access if you wall-mount the TV. On the side, you’ll find a USB port, Composition, and two HDMI ports.

When you move down to the downward-facing inputs you’ll find two more HDMI ports, including one that supports eARC, next to that is your optical digital audio out as well, and finally,

you’ve got your cable antenna and ethernet input. While the M8 2020 is advertised as supporting HDMI 2.1, it isn’t indicated which of the HDMI ports support this. At this time, we don’t have a way to test for HDMI 2.1, but we’ll update the full review on our website once we do and we’re able to confirm.

This may not matter to everyone, but if you’re rea gamer and plan on picking up one of the next-gen PlayStation or Xbox consoles later this year, this will be important to get the best possible performance out of them. Though since this TV only has a 60 Hz panel,

which I’ll talk a bit more about later, HDMI 2.1 really won’t make much of a difference anyway. Now we’ll move on to the picture quality.

As always, check out our website for an updated comparison with new TVs as we buy and test them. Let’s begin with the contrast ratio, which the ratio between the darkest black and brightest white that a TV can display.

A high contrast ratio will give deep inky blacks that’ll make the image appear deep and full of detail, especially in darker scenes, and a good contrast ratio is generally considered oneThe 2020 M8’s contrast ratio is excellent,

which is great for watching movies in a dark environment. That being said, it’s actually not quite as good as 2019’s M8,

which had an absolutely remarkable contrast, but it’s slightly better than the 2020 Hisense H8G. Unlike edge-lit TVs that light up their LCD panels with lights only around the edges of the television,

the 2020 M8 has full-array local dimming to help enhance the contrast even more, by using lights directly behind the LCD panel that can turn on or off as needed. Unfortunately,

the 2020 M8’s local dimming feature is sub-par overall and there are quite a few issues with its implementation, and some bugs that hopefully will be fixed through future firmware updates.
