I recently reviewed Vizio’s V-Series TV, and I still love it to this day. The 4K picture is phenomenal, and the smart features are remarkable. But sometimes you don’t need a large TV.
Vizio’s V-Series TV’s start at 43” and go up to 75”. The D-Series starts at 24” and goes up to 43”, and is packed with the same technology and features as it’s bigger siblings.
I was first intrigued by this model because I knew I didn’t need a big TV everywhere in my house. Though I do love a big TV, there are some places where it either isn’t necessary or just simply does not fit.
This is where the D-Series thrives. Due to its size, I have been able to utilize my 40” D-Series TV from Vizio in three different places in my home already.
First, I utilized it in my multipurpose space in my basement. Not having to plug anything else into it, yet being able to access all streaming services is near magical. To make it even better, I can also Chromecast or AirPlay to this TV natively.
Second, I moved this TV to my guest bedroom when we had family stay with us for an extended period of time. I had a tv in there that needed a Chromecast or Apple TV in order to be able to stream, plus it was heavy and dated. Being able to place this incredibly light, thin, and powerful TV on the dresser and plug in only one power cord is beautiful.
Third, and most recently, I moved this TV to my home office. As I’ve shared in previous posts, I am working from home and have been for a while. I had an idea to make this TV my monitor when I needed a change of scenery from my office one day. I went out to my other room in my basement and AirPlayed to my 40” D-Series.
About a week ago, I wanted to change up my desk setup, as I semi-regularly do. I cleared my desk down to my desk mat and I placed the TV at the far back end. After adding a few accessories, and the all too classic fake plant, I fell in love with utilizing my iPad Pro and TV workflow. I don’t know how long I will keep it this way, however for at least a few weeks or months I will utilize this setup. If nothing else, knowing that this is a possibility, and not a bad workflow in the slightest, is a lot of fun.
This TV is not designed to be a monitor, nor is it high enough picture quality to be a proper monitor. But knowing it has high enough frame rates to not be laggy, and the technology to be able to AirPlay, Chromecast, or of course plug in via HDMI is wonderful.
TVs for me in the past have been bought, placed, and only moved when I move homes. Now, with this TV, I have started to realize that there is a new wave of functionality with Vizios D-Series.
