In the market for a new TV? While you might be inclined to make a beeline for Sony or Samsung, there are lesser-known brands with incredible pictures (and incredible prices).

Case in point: We just found a massive, top-rated TV for $498, down from $578. The Vizio 55-inch M-Series 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV delivers a brilliant picture with modern streaming and smart home features, and Walmart has it for the lowest price on the web right now—Vizio.com doesn't even have it this cheap. 

And, you’ll get free unlimited shipping with Walmart+ too. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, but a quick three question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)

Meet your new 4K TV

With four times the resolution of Full HD at 1080p, this 4K TV is incredibly vivid. It has an ultra-thin bezel (more screen, less frame), great color (thanks to High Dynamic Range and Dolby Vision support) and crisp audio—it’s got it all.

“I can't begin to describe the vivid, vibrant colors this TV has. Picture quality is awesome," gushed a five-star reviewer. "The picture is so crisp and clear. Setup is super easy and self explanatory...Another feature I like is the remote because it just has the basic buttons and nothing too confusing...The sound quality of this TV is amazing and the surround sound is great..."

Sync to your Apple and Android devices

One of its standout features is its compatibility with both Android and Apple devices (it’s rare to see a TV that works with both). There’s no need to buy an Apple TV box. Just sync the 4K model to your iPhone, iPad or MacBook via Wi-Fi, and you can use Apple AirPlay 2 to watch movies and shows.

The TV is also compatible with Android smartphones and tablets via the Vizio app and Google Chromecast. And it works with Google Assistant and Siri too. Plus, Siri lets you navigate your options hands-free. Have we convinced you yet?

Says a five-star fan: "This TV is amazing...It's simply a mini IMAX screen!"
