You're getting higher brightness and more color than the 2017 version, a better design, and more far-reaching smart features.
And while I can only comment with certainty on the 55-inch we tested, the local dimming was absolutely incredible, a real testament to the work that Vizio has done in recent years honing its local dimming algorithm. If that sounds like your cup o' tea, keep your eye on the P.
There's no ifs, ands, or buts about it—the 2017 P Series is another smash hit from Vizio. While it stumbles in a few small places due to the eccentricities of the full-array/local dimming backlight type, it's pound-for-pound a great TV that delivers all the fancy new tech goodies, meaning it'll stay relevant for years thanks to 4K, HDR, and a handsome design that'll look great in any home.

While it's too early to call this TV the best value of 2018, holy moly, it's a serious value. The 6 Series is a top-notch performer with great HDR specs and a svelte, voice-searchable version of the Roku platform. Input lag is still good, and TCL has improved the sensitivity and granularity of its local dimming system, too. Grab this one up if you want future-facing 4K/HDR performance for way less than the competition.

TCL's P Series is looking to be one of the most valuable TVs of the year. While only the 55-inch (55P607) is available right now, there are 50- and 65-inch versions on the way. If they're anywhere near as promising as our 55-inch test sample, the whole series looks to be one of the most valuable and high-performance HDR/4K TV series on the market this year.

While it might be a little pricier than most buyers would like, you can't argue with this TV's quality. Testing revealed a huge set of advantages, including excellent picture quality, a good smart platform experience, and very attractive design elements. Drawbacks are minimal, meaning only HDR-crazy buyers will want to up the ante and buy into the brighter, more colorful Samsung QLEDs.
