Seems like a variation of the P series made just for Costco.

Same TV is currently $750 on sale at Best Buy

Comes with tablet, or need to provide your own? Had tried setting up one on my phone and hated the app. Returned the TV to costco next day

Nope. This is NOT a P series. It is an M series, like the model number suggests. P series has 126 zones and ultra wide color gamut. this set does not

oh I know just meant that because it has the tablet remote and HDR. I'm guessing the tablet remote is their new standard for better or for worse.

All M series TVs come with this. Good price but no where near the P Series

Maybe for HDR, but the stander picture quality is comparable to the P series.

It's not even close. Both have HDR. The dimming is horrid on the M compared to P

All reviews seem to say otherwise. Do you own both TV's?

Had both yes. Ended up with Samsung KS8000. And all reviews on 4K and Rtings say the same thing

Oh yea?

The Vizio M Series 2016 LED TV provides great picture quality and overall performance, excelling in motion performance for watching sports or playing video games. Unfortunately it can't get very bright and doesn't have good 4k HDR support. Overall it is an improvement on the Vizio M Series 2015, and the performance is close to the higher end Vizio P Series 2016.

Also the 50" and 55" use a different panel on M series and are only 60hz refresh along with a lot less dimming zones then the other M series sizes. I had the 70" M series which is the way better panel and it still wasn't close to the 65" P series.

Yea. The model they are comparing are the 65" and up on M series. the 50 and 55" have a different crappy panel with half the dimming zones and only 60hz refresh. There is no comparison.

Thanks for clarifying. I was looking at the 70" myself, so I didn't even think of that.

Which M and P did you own/return?

The 50" and 55" models have 60Hz panels so some of the motion interpolation options are not available (i.e. 'Reduce Judder' and 'Reduce Motion Blur'). For those who like the soap opera effect, it is maybe better to get an 120Hz version of the M series 2016.

Different sizes have different panel provenances, so it is possible our review doesn't represent exactly all sizes.

Dude the M is good at 70". The P is better but I couldn't see spending the extra $ as the P is pricey at that size. I ended up with the Samsung as to me it popped more and I scored one around $1550 bit you won't go wrong with 70 M series as they have had some good deals

I hate that Vizio did this too as it's pretty crappy as most people don't realize the 50 and 55 they skimped on.
