Vizio’s 2022 TV line includes better processing and FreeSync, but no 8K models or any with a mini-LED backlight – Jon L. Jacobi

Vizio announced it’s 2022 lineup of TVs today, and there are improvements throughout. Mild improvements in most cases, but they’re better nonetheless. There’s a rather confusing eight different series in the works.

The entry-level D-series (if you Don’t have the money for 4K UHD) is a 60Hz, 720p or 1080p TV with a standard (i.e., non-voice) remote, array backlighting (no local dimming zones), and Wi-Fi, but no Bluetooth. It’s available with 720p resolution in 24-inch ($140) and 32-inch ($180) sizes, and with 1080p resolution in 40-inch ($250) and 43-inch sizes ($300). Make sure which you’re buying.

The D4-series is basically the same TV with AMD’s FreeSync added for another $20, but it’s only available in 24- and 30-inch flavors (with 1080p resolution). If you game, you’ll want FreeSync. These TVs also come with a standard remote.
