Vizio, the biggest seller of Smart TVs in the U.S., has just announced their new line of very affordable E-Series TVs for 2015.

Although low-priced, the E-Series offers up a host of features, including 1080p native display resolution, 120Hz or 240Hz refresh rates (depending on model), with added Clear Action motion processing for a 240Hz or 480Hz-like effect (depending on the model), built-in WiFi, Vizio's Internet Apps Plus Smart TV platform and these sets also incorporate Full Array LED Backlight (except for the 24-inch model - which is edge-lit).

Full-Array backlighting technology provides black levels that are deeper and more uniform across the entire screen surface, unlike edge-lit technology which is subject to white "blotching" and "corner spotlighting". Also, to provide even greater control of blacks and whites, Vizio 2015 E-Series full-array backlit sets in screen sizes 40-inches and up feature from five to sixteen independently controlled active LED local dimming zones.
