'Not a TV, it's an experience': This bestselling 50-inch Vizio is down to $248

What is it?

Fall sports are in full swing — is your TV up to snuff? You'll want something that can show your favorite form of moving a ball around a field in the best possible resolution. This 50-inch Vizio, on sale for $248 (from $319) at Walmart, is exactly the kind of set you need to catch.

With more than 8 million pixels, you'll be able to see every smudge of dirt on the bases.

Why is this a great deal?

This is one of the lowest prices on the web for this particular TV, and it's a fantastic deal overall for a 50-inch TV with 4K resolution.

Why do I need this?

This TV packs a lot of power into a small frame. 4K resolution can be a lot to look at, especially when you consider it has four times as many pixels as 1080p, the typical measurement for high definition. This Vizio TV comes with several picture modes to enhance viewing even further, including Dolby Vision Bright Mode. Additionally, it supports HDR, or high dynamic range — in other words, you'll see the contrast between dark and light spots much more clearly.

The built-in IQ Processor will help scale lower-resolution content so that it looks great on your screen, no matter how old it might be. Not sure what to watch? The built-in SmartCast OS makes it easy to browse through your favorite apps or stream content straight from your phone.

Want to use the TV for a bit of gaming? No problem! The V-Gaming Engine will reduce input lag and give you a higher refresh rate. What does that mean for you? Simple: Games will play with less lag and look better than they might otherwise. It can mean the difference between a perfect interception or a fumble.

Outside of just being easy to use — something that's important in a smart TV — there are tons of ports for connecting accessories. There are three HDMI 2.1 ports, as well as a USB port. It even works with smart assistants to help you better control your smart home.

Right now, this TV is on sale for $248 — a steal for all the value it brings to the table.

What reviewers say

"This is not a TV, it is an experience. I have another major brand that is two years old and the difference in the picture quality and features from it to this TV is no less than amazing," quipped one reviewer.

Another backed up that opinion. "Best TV ever! I am so happy with this purchase! Great picture! Comes with so many free channels and movies! Friends say they wish they would have bought this TV instead of what they bought!"

"The picture quality is good. I just feel like it was a bit on the darker side, almost like it needs more vibrancy, but I know you could probably fix this in settings," one shopper said.

Every blade of grass and every single hit will look incredibly sharp.
