Display tech
Specs for the 2015 Vizio E-Series include:
  • 1080p resolution
  • 60Hz refresh rate (65", 70" 120Hz)
  • VA and IPS panel technology
  • Full-array local dimming (up to 16 zones)
  • Backlight scanning/blinking to improve motion resolution
  • Smart TV features with built-in WiFi
  • Quad-core GPU + Dual-core CPU (65", 70" only)


The E-Series features a new base stand design that places feet near the sides of the TV's frame. Compared to the central location of previous Vizio stand designs, this configuration should provide increased stability although it will require a wider perch to sit upon. Otherwise, the E-Series retains the slim bezel design of its predecessor, and cabinet depth for the 70" model is 2.68-inches without the stand.

Contrast enhancement
The 24-inch E-Series will be the only model to feature an edge-lit backlight system instead of the full-array local dimming (FALD) technology of the larger screens. Full-array local dimming enables a TV to dynamically dim the backlight behind darker portions of the picture for improved picture contrast.

Excellent Wireless HDMI

Zone count
The number zones for the E-Series' full-array local dimming system varies by screen size; the zone count increases with screen size. For the 2015 models, the number of FALD zones is as follows:

  • 5 zones: 40-inches, 43-inches
  • 6 zones: 48-inches
  • 12 zones: 50-inches, 55-inches, 60-inches
  • 16 zones: 65-inches, 70-inches
