Vizio’s 55- and 65-inch 4K OLED TVs are available starting at $1,300

In June, Vizio announced the pricing for its highly anticipated debut 4K OLED HDR smart TV models, but wouldn’t commit to a release date. Now we know when you can get them: Right now.

Vizio’s OLED TVs set a new benchmark in terms of price, with the 55-inch model coming in $300 under the regular price of LG’s most affordable 55-inch OLED, the $1,600 BX Series (one of the best OLED TV deals around).

The new TVs support virtually all major HDR formats (Dolby Vision, HLG, HDR10, and HDR10+) and are equipped with Vizio’s new ProGaming Engine. Curiously, though you’ll be able to hear Dolby Atmos sound if you buy an Atmos-capable speaker like Vizio’s $1,000 Elevate soundbar, the OLED TVs themselves are not Dolby Atmos compatible.

The Elevate soundbar won’t be released until later in October, according to a Vizio spokesperson.

These models come equipped with four HDMI 2.1 ports, which can support 4K video at up to 120 frames per second; they also support variable refresh rate (VRR) for better compatibility with modern game consoles and PC gaming.

Like other Vizio TVs, these OLED models use the company’s SmartCast software for downloading apps from streaming providers such as Netflix and Disney+, and bake in Chromecast and Apple’s AirPlay 2 technology for casting compatibility with all major devices.

Digital Trends has yet to receive one of Vizio’s OLED TVs for testing, so we can’t comment on how well they perform. Given that Vizio is buying its OLED panels from LG Display — the same source LG Electronics and Sony use for their OLED models — it’s safe to say they should have very good picture quality.

The real question will be, does that picture quality look good enough that it’s worth saving yourself the extra $300 over the price of the LG BX Series? We’ll let you know as soon as we publish our in-depth review.

Samsung prices its 77-inch QD-OLED at $4,500. Presale starts now
The Samsung S95C on display at CES 2023.

Confirming an earlier leak, Samsung has formally announced the price of its 77-inch 4K QD-OLED TV, the S95C. The new model which was shown first at CES 2023, will sell for $4,500. , and Samsung says shipments will begin later in the month. Those who buy the TV during the preorder period will also qualify for free professional installation, which Samsung says is worth $250.

The price is less of a surprise thanks to an earlier accidental slip by Samsung -- near the end of January, the company briefly put the price of the S95C on its U.S. website, and then quickly removed it. But not before it was captured and reported on.

Samsung accidentally reveals price of its 77-inch QD-OLED TV
The Samsung S95C on display at CES 2023.

Usually, when new TVs are announced at CES, it can take months for companies to reveal pricing and availability. And perhaps Samsung was planning to do just that with its 77-inch S95C, its largest QD-OLED TV to date. But the company seemingly let the cat out of the bag on January 26, by including the new model -- and its price -- on its U.S. website, according to Sammobile.

The S95C details are no longer on the website, so Digital Trends can't verify the information, however, a screenshot taken at the time shows a price of $4499.99, making the larger model $1,500 more expensive than its currently available 65-inch S95B, which sells for $3,000. If this seems like a bigger gap in price than we're used to for models that exist in both 65- and 77-inch sizes, it could be because the S95C is going to be Samsung's premium 77-inch QD-OLED, with the planned S90C arriving in a 77-inch size but with fewer features.

I replaced my kitchen TV with an Echo Show 15 — and I kinda liked it

For the better part of the last 20 years, my family has had a TV in our kitchen. It was the cheapest 19-inch flat screen I could find at the time -- a 720p Sharp model -- and we hooked it up to our cable connection and a Tivoli One speaker for better sound. It worked just fine -- no complaints. But when Amazon asked if I wanted to try swapping that ancient rig out for something a bit more modern, like an Amazon Echo Show 15 with its latest Fire TV update, I figured why not? Three weeks into the experiment, here’s how it’s going.
You’re gonna need a mount …
