Can This TV Replace Your Gaming Monitor?

– Hey guys this is Austin! When Vizio reached out and wanted to sponsor a video on the brand new P Series Quantum X TV, the very first thing I thought of, was that this actually looks like a properly cool gaming monitor By properly cool I mean a 65 inch game monitor that I currently have plugged into a gaming PC right now, 'cause I mean of course I do

Just don't mind the cables We'll tidy those up never Especially when you pair this with a gaming PC you can get some real performance out of it

And of course you can watch This Is episodes, which is definitely a good idea, you can check it out: YouTubecom/thisis But more importantly than that, you can do real things like Apex Legends One of the main advantages with the P Series Quantum X is just how bright it is So you can't go over the HDR mode, you can get a peak brightness of nearly 3000 nits

Not only is that way beyond pretty much any other TV we've ever looked at, but especially when you compare it to like a gaming monitor, it is so much brighter and one of the nice things is that things that Windows are doing a much better job, although not quite perfect, of supporting HDR displays and consoles, such as the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, can also take advantage of that incredible brightness and clarity I know it sounds like super marketing kind of speak, but it is really nice to see something which can get this bright but also still has all the functionality you expect in a gaming display One of the more subtle features is around back So here we have five HDMI ports, four of which will do 4K, 60 Hertz, HDR, all that kind of stuff, but what really drew me to this TV is HDMI number five, as this will allow the TV to run at 1080p at a full 120 Hertz Now that is awesome, seriously this is a 65 inch, 120 Hertz display

And importantly, unlike most TVs that have some sort of so-called game mode, this actually is a super low-latency port, I mean you're looking at somewhere in the neighborhood of only ten milliseconds of latency, which is very much on par with live game monitors, which are much much smaller So the first thing that jumps out to me is that this is a giant display I should've moved my mouse and keyboard farther away, but the advantage here is that we really are getting an experience that you just can't get on a console Sure consoles can play at 4K, HDR, and all that kind of stuff, but you're never going to get this super high refresh rate I mean dude, that's so smooth and it's so big, like ridiculous

For real though, I love the idea of hooking up a gaming PC to a display like this It's such a unique sort of proposition, 'cause yeah there are these high-end 4K HDR gaming TVs That's nice, but they're insanely expensive, whereas this is something which you can use as a TV, you can use it to watch Netflix or YouTube or whatever the case is, and you can also plug your gaming PC in and get an incredibly good gaming experience Right now we're like 150 frames per second and it's buttery smooth Oh there we go, there we go! There we go! Dude people are totally sleeping on the idea of using a TV as a gaming display

Now sure it's not the smallest thing in the world and won't fit on your desk for example, unless you have a really baller desk, but the advantage here is that you're getting something which will work for everything, right? You plug your PC in, you can play super high frame rates, super low latency, but you can also hook up something like a console and of course use it as a proper TV as well A big reason why this TV is such a jack of all trades is because it takes advantage of this year's quantum color technology Quantum dots are a really interesting thing that is not something that has really been explained very well as far as I'm concerned So of course I had to bring my buddy West in, to see exactly what this thing is all about What makes it tick, what makes it

Pixel? Sparkle, we're gonna go with sparkle on that one What actually makes a quantum dot different than say just a standard LCD? – Well with the standard LCD you obviously have a giant backlight, that's then pushing through sort of a transparent finish of pixels, right? And then they're glowing different colors by having that light go through – [Austin] Yeah

– But to tune that backlight, there's always a filter, so instead of being super blue – You can never be as accurate as you wanna be – Exactly, it makes more of a neutral white But what's really cool about quantum dot technology is that it actually lets you get that full range of brightness and color – Yeah – without getting super crunchy – Yeah yeah

So with that quantum dot tech, it allows for a wider range of color and that is backed up by the act of full array dimming, which has a full 480 zones of local dimming on board, which means that you actually get some proper contrast, as well as some very very bright highlights So right now we're casting this as a TV right? – Yeah we're casting over Chromecast, Vizio's SmartCast OS essentially has a Chromecast Ultra to filter it in – So we have 4K, HDR, the whole thing – Exactly, anything that you can cast in 4K HDR to Chromecast Ultra, you can do with this – But you also do have Netflix and all that kind of stuff, and I know that they're actually adding AirPlay as well to the TV soon, right? – [West] Yep AirPlay control with Google Home and Alexa and all that fun stuff

– [Austin] Oh yeah! – So they're really seeming to make it fully integrated – [Austin] They have everything on this I really think it's worth considering a giant display such as the P Series Quatum X Not only is it good as a TV, but it's also surprisingly solid as a gaming display as well If you guys are interested, I'll have a link in the description to check this guy out, Vizio did give me a promo code which will get you a little it of a percentage off of it, so definitely be sure to go check that out
