Content creators are quickly running out of excuses for not taking advantage of 4K Ultra HD resolutions. That's because the transition from Full HD 1080p to 4K Ultra HD is taking place faster than anyone expected, and it's due to hardware makers taking the initiative rather than waiting on content creators to force their hands. Not only are we seeing more and more 4K TVs, we're starting to see affordable models, like Vizio's new P Series starting at $999.

Sure, dropping a grand on a television isn't chump change, but comparatively speaking, that's not bad for a big screen TV, especially one that supports a 4K resolution. In this case, that buys you Vizio's 50-inch P-Series TV with a 4K panel, LED backlighting, smart functionality, and more.

Vizio 4K TV

"Our P-Series collection offers an outstanding Ultra HD picture and performance," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, Vizio. "The shift towards 4K has left consumers demanding new solutions that deliver the right innovations to enhance their viewing experience. The P-Series Ultra HD line-up is benefited by Vizio’s number one position in the Smart TV marketplace, equipped with HEVC H.265 codec and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi for faster streaming and the latest HDCP 2.2 support for playback of protected Ultra HD content. This combination of technologies leaves consumers with the solutions that matter most in an Ultra HD set."

If that's not big enough for you, Vizio's P Series comes in larger sizes, all the way up to 70 inches. Pricing (MSRP) for the P-Series breaks down as follows:
  • Vizio 50-inch P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV (P502ui-B1) $999.99
  • Vizio 55-inch P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV (P552ui-B2) $1,399.99
  • Vizio 60-inch P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV (P602ui-B3) $1,699.99
  • Vizio 65-inch P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV (P652ui-B2) $2,199.99
  • Vizio 70-inch P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV (P702ui-B3) $2,499.99

All of the above models are available to pre-order at Vizio's website and will roll out "soon" to stores and e-tailers.

Vizio has always made good bang for the buck HDTVs I'm not surprised to see this with 4K models but until there's more 4K content out there there really isn't a need for a 4K set. Plus imagine upscaling your HD content up to 4K that may work fine but I'm sure a lot more people are already upscaling DVDs to 1080p with mixed results, imagine stretching the old DVD content even further it will look like video tape on a current 1080p screen.
