I bought it because I wanted a bigger tv than my 65" oled. The pq was rather dull but the blacks were decent. I don't think it had a chance since I'm use to the 65ef9500. I sent it back. lol

Plus you get the free 2nd year warranty from Costco. This is likely the best you will get on this particular model until Black Friday.

That's a loaded question. For a quick and basic overview, CNet's current list for best 2017 TVs is here [cnet.com].

They still list the 2016 M series as best value, and the 2017 M series are much better TVs. I think this is probably the best summary,
"Best mid-priced picture for the money:
No other TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Its value proposition is the best we've ever seen on a TV this high-performance and well-equipped, period."
A review for the 2016 model is here [cnet.com]. The 2017 model gets rid of the annoying remote from 2016 and it has improved picture quality. A preview of the 2017 models is here [cnet.com].

I personally would compare this particular model to a 3-Series BMW. It's not a Porsche, it's not an M-Series BMW, but it's way better then what most people are driving. Hope that helps.

Are you dense, or do you just pretend to be that way? Costco has some of the best deals on Vizio, you get a 90 day return policy, and 2 years of warranty. Also, do tell me how $2,299.99*1.14 (AKA the 114% markup you're proposing)=$1,999.

Rtings.com is the Bible for tv reviews.

Just the summary:


The Vizio M Series 2017 is a good 4k UHD LED TV that works best in a dark room. It produces deep and uniform blacks, and its great handling of motion and good input lag are a boon for gaming. Its local dimming feature isn't the best, but it still enhances the depth of the picture a good amount. Unfortunately, it isn't the best at handling reflections, and its viewing angle is quite narrow, making it less suitable for bright, wide living rooms.

I guess you could use something else. I have a Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner for Xbox One TV Tuners and Video Capture 1578

Its local dimming feature isn't the best, but it still enhances the depth of the picture a good amount. Unfortunately, it isn't the best at handling reflections, and its viewing angle is quite narrow, making it less suitable for bright, wide living rooms.
Here are some specific summaries from above for movies, sports, and video games:

Movies: Great choice for movies in a dark room. The Vizio M produces deep and uniform blacks, and it sports a decent local dimming feature that enhances its contrast further.

Sports: Decent TV for watching live sports. The Vizio M series handles motion well, and it produces a uniform image free of major blotchiness. Unfortunately though, picture quality does degrade at an angle.

Video Games: Great TV for video games. The Vizio M 2017 has low input lag and motion blur. Games feel responsive, and its image flicker feature can greatly enhance the clarity of motion.

Im dense, yes, but i was also pointing out that its marked approximately 1-2% above cost (if previously 13% higher), so was juat saying, good deal.
