The Vizio M7-Series Quantum TVs can produce a solid picture thanks to full-array local dimming and a variable refresh rate for gaming. And during Cyber Monday (that’s today) you can save up to $350 on sets from 50 to 75 inches.
Full disclosure: The Vizio MQ7 doesn’t perform as well as some of our other favorite TVs, and we weren’t pleased with Vizio’s smart TV platform. But our review called out its ability to deliver good-looking high dynamic range video for an affordable price. The MQ7-Series Quantum is a compelling option if you want better picture quality than a basic TV but can’t afford something like the TCL 6-Series or Sony X90J, for example.
With the exception of the 65-inch size (see below) all other sizes are back down to their lowest prices of the year at Amazon. Note there’s an extra $70 off the 58-inch model as a lightning deal today at Amazon.
Vizio M50Q7-J01, 50-inch: $500 (save $200)Vizio M55Q7-J01, 55-inch: $530 (save $220)Vizio M58Q7-J01, 58-inch: $480 (save $290)Vizio M70Q7-J03, 70-inch: $750 (save $350)Vizio M75Q7-J03, 75-inch: $998 (save $302)
Those determined to get the 65-inch size will have to head over to Costco where it’s going for $600. That’s a $300 savings on the regular $900 price tag.

Note that larger sizes in the MQ7 series have more local dimming zones, which means that the sizes below 65 inches are somewhat dimmer than their larger siblings. The 65-inch and larger models also have innovative soundbar-friendly adjustable stand legs, which makes it easier to adjust the height of the TV so that a soundbar speaker won’t block the screen.
