Decoding Vizio LED and LCD TV Model Numbers

Updated for 2016

Series: E stands for is the entry level, M stands for mid level, P is for the 4K series, and R is for the Reference series
Size: The size is stated in diagonal measurements. For example, 55 inches means the screen is 55 inches from corner to corner diagonally. The third number after size seems less important this year. '2' is seen on the M and P series. '0' is seen on all E series TVs.
Features: Vizio models with 'i' in the number feature Vizio Internet Apps Plus. 'd' was for 3D playback, but 3D has been dropped for 2014. Those without a letter are missing those features.
Variant: The end letters and numbers do not indicate any major differences between similar sized models. The E320i-B1 and E320i-B2 are essentially the same TV.

Vizio M Series 4K LED  

The 2015 mid-level M series has made the jump to 4K.
