The P65-F1 also supports HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma in addition to Ultra HD resolution and extended color. Covering most of the DCI-P3 color space, you can expect rich and saturated color to accompany the latest Ultra HD/HDR content. A full-array backlight employs 100 individually-addressable dimming zones to provide maximum contrast with whites up to 1000 nits and deep blacks that retain fine shadow detail. VIZIO SmartCast taps into hundreds of content streams making cord-cutting a breeze. Users of Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant can control their P65-F1 with simple voice commands. An all-new design features a bezel-free image on three sides.
I’ve received a shiny new sample for review and I can already tell it’s an improvement over the P65-E1 I covered last year. Dolby Vison promises even better contrast than HDR10 thanks to dynamic tone mapping. Rather than applying the same parameters to all displays, it knows what TV it’s being shown on and configures itself for that product’s capabilities. With a high-contrast VA panel, 100 dimming zones, and coverage of most of the DCI-P3 color gamut, the P65-F1 is very capable indeed.
A few preliminary measurements show exceptional out-of-box accuracy, and Dolby Vision content looks amazing. I’ve accumulated a fair number of Ultra HD Blu-rays that feature it, and my OPPO UDP-203 has the latest firmware, so I’m all set for some premium binge-watching. Watch this space for my full review of the VIZIO P65-F1 65” Ultra HD Television.
