Vizio at CES 2014: affordable 4K, updated PCs, and speakers that run Android


Vizio came to CES with a goal in mind: winning the 4K pricing wars. The company's new 4K TVs start at only $999.99, though it's also unveiled an impressive Reference Series for videophiles. Vizio also used CES to deliver updates to its laptops and all-in-one PCs, and even debuted something of an oddball product: speaker docks that run the Android operating system.

Vizio's first 4K TVs will start at only $999

Vizio announced its first lineup of 4K TVs yesterday, but there was no word on price. Surprisingly enough, the company has already broken its silence on the matter — its consumer-grade P series lineup of 4K TVs will start at only $999.99 for a 50-inch model. The top-end, 70-inch model will go for $2,599.99, making Vizio's series the most affordable we've seen yet.

Vizio has dabbled in Android before, but the Android-based product that the company’s showing off at CES 2014 was certainly a bit of an oddity — the company’s new "Smart Audio" bluetooth speakers embed a full display that will run Android 4.4 Kit Kat when they launch. Vizio’s offering two options — there’s a smaller version with a 4.7-inch, 1280 x 720 screen and a larger model with a 7-inch, 1280 x 800 display.

It was hard to judge the performance, as these early demo models aren’t running...

Vizio updates its Thin + Light laptop and all-in-one with Haswell processors, Iris Pro graphics

It’s now been exactly two years since Vizio announced it was making the bold move of entering the PC marketplace with its Thin + Light laptops and all-in-one desktop computers. While its first round of laptops didn’t quite live up to our expectations, that hasn’t stopped the company from continuing to tweak and refine the basic concept introduced back at CES 2012. Today, Vizio’s pulling back the cover on a new 15.6-inch Thin + Light laptop and a new 24-inch all-in-one that don’t change...

Vizio announces its first consumer 4K TVs, kills all 3D support

A year after unveiling its first 4K TV prototype, Vizio is fully commiting to the ultra high-def technology. Here at CES, the company is expanding its TV lineup to include a new P Series — Vizio's first consumer-grade 4K television. Set to be in available in sizes ranging between 50 and 70 inches, the P Series, in Vizio's own words, "is the culmination of advanced picture quality, powerful performance and a beautifully simple Ultra HD experience." These TVs feature advanced local dimming, a...
