More of us will be buying into Ultra HD: Vizio

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, April 22, 2015

More of us will be buying into Ultra HD.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Just a few years ago, the thought of buying an Ultra HD or 4K TV, was pretty much out of the question for most of us.   Prices were sky high and there wasn’t all that much to watch in Ultra HD anyway.    But things are changing fast.   Streaming services are adding more and more content in Ultra HD ….and the big TV makers are dropping prices.   In Vizio’s new line up of M series TVs….a 43 inch model comes in at 599 dollars.  Senior Product Marketing Manager Carlos Angulo…

“So the 50 inch MSRP is 799.  Again, it’s really taking all that performance that was first introduced in the P series and bringing it down to the M series.   So while it is considerably under a thousand dollars, from a performance standpoint ….it is absolutely an amazing value.”

The new models are arriving in stores now.   There’s more info at Vizio.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
