The TV also has a full-array LED backlight with local dimming zones that adjust the brightness according to the content on screen.

According to Consumer Reports, the Vizio V585M-K01 TV has excellent HD picture quality when evaluated using basic HD content (non-HDR). It also has very good UHD picture quality when evaluated using 4K content with HDR. The TV has good viewing angles, meaning that the picture quality does not degrade much when viewed from different positions. However, the TV has only average sound quality and does not have a headphone jack or an optical audio output.

The Vizio V585M-K01 TV is also a good choice for gamers who want to enjoy smooth gameplay on their big screen. The TV has AMD FreeSync and variable refresh rate (VRR) features that reduce screen tearing and stuttering by matching the frame rate of your console or PC. The TV also has low input lag (the time it takes for your actions on your controller to appear on screen), which is essential for fast-paced games.

The design of the Vizio V585M-K01 TV is simple but elegant. The TV has thin bezels around the screen that give it a sleek look. The stand is made of metal and provides good stability for the TV. The back panel is plastic but does not look cheap. The ports are located on the left side of the back panel and include three HDMI inputs (one with eARC), one USB port (for power only), one Ethernet port (for wired internet connection), one antenna/cable input (for over-the-air channels), one composite video input (for older devices), one analog audio output (for external speakers), one digital audio output (for soundbars).

The dimensions of the Vizio V585M-K01 TV without stand are 51" x 29" x 2" (W x H x D) and with stand are 51" x 31" x 11" (W x H x D). The weight without stand is 33 lbs and with stand is 34 lbs.

## Conclusion
