      I give this TV 8 bags of popcorn and maybe a chromecast dongle.

      It’s like I’m watching Tim’s older serious brother.

        51 inches? My maximum entertainment console is a max of 42 inches, which makes this a no buy for me; thank goodness I found this review before I purchased it.

          42 inches? There are phones bigger than that these days, the smallest OLED is 55” and for a reason, immersivity.

                                Looks like total crap.. big coloration dots and diagonal lines all over the screen is what I'm seeing. After just watching a lot of Samsung, Sony, LG video's.. this one is just as I said.. total crap. Am I missing something? Or did this video show something on the screen that's not actually there? Need some explanation on those horrible dots all over the screen.

                                        Reached out to vizio on the missing YouTube app.

                                        "Hi , currently all out 2019 models have YouTube and YouTube TV installed. Our early 2019 models did ship without getting certified by YouTube. This certification is required in order to have the app listed on the SmartCast input. Some reviewers like the one you mentioned from Digital Trends did not have the certification yet. Luckily, that has since been resolved and SmartCast 3.0 will not be removing YouTube or YouTube TV. I hope that clears things up a bit! - Vizio"

                                                        Caleb, thanks for your great review. I especially like your pointing out the poor software that Vizio continues to run with. This reminds me of when they released their new top lines w/o a remote, but instead, a tablet, again forcing you into their casting process which many people did not like. And what about those stupid legs?
                                                        I spend $10 per month for YouTube Premium. Other than Amazon, who choses to omit YouTube from their built-in app selection? I suppose it goes w/o saying there was no YouTube TV app either? Is Vizio still trying to play the "bang-for-the-buck" card on units like this? They just elevate the suggested retail price so that when we see them being blown out at Costco for less than $1500 later this year, we will think it's such a great deal for a TV that supposedly competes against the LG OLED. That's a laugh! If it weren't for the brightness levels, nobody would give them a second look.

                                                          Honestly I personally love the whole SmartCast OS that Vizio uses for the TV, it’s my favorite TV OS with Web OS being my second favorite one.

I had the 2016 P series and it was amazing for 50". I guess with the HDR and DV, gotta cut cost somewhere compared to 2016.
