Does the 2017 M-Series have a true 10-Bit color panel for real HDR playback? Cause I know last year's model didn't.

Also, what do you think is better, this M55-D0 or Samsung's 55MU6290? From what I've heard the Vizio M-Series is usually the better TV set.

In general I'd say the "E" series are more on par with the Samsung 6290. The M series are very similar to the Samsung 8000 series. They are even pretty close to the Sony X900E as far as PQ is concerned with a native 4K signal. For upscaling cable the Samsung or Sony will do better.

Do you know if this M-Series has true HDR playback, cause the MU6290 doesn't.

I own the Samsung and will say the picture on the M is noticeably beteter The Samsung is no slouch but I opted for the Samsung due to a much lower price for a new one (got it the 55" for $429 ).

Well people need to understand what that means. The M series supports HDR10 and Vision, meaning it can read the headers and display the content but it's not fully "Vision Capable" because I believe it needs to be at least 1000 bits of brightness. This display has nearly 800 nits peak so I believe it's definitely "HDR" but not fully Vision compliant. Basically it will display Dolby Vision to the best of its abilities.

I got the 55MU6290 for my mom's for $399+tax with Target REDCard. But I'm thinking of trying to get either a better 55" or a slightly higher priced 60"-65" 4K Smart TV. So Don't like that this M-Series is refurbished, however it'd be much more if it wasn't. I myself have an LG 4K HDR OLED 3D Smart TV (OLED65C6P) so I know what stunning 4K HDR looks like with a true 10-Bit color panel & my mom's 55MU6290 pales in comparison.

Actually your incorrect, for HDR10 you need a 10-Bit color panel, WCG & a brightness to black level ratio of either 1000 nits to 0.05 black levels or 540 nits to 0.0005 black levels for OLED's. Since OLED reproduces such dark black levels, it doesn't need as high brightness levels as LED based LCD TVs need.

Technically, for full HDR Dolby Vision you need a television or display with a 12-Bit color panel. Because that's what directors originally film at when filming in Dolby Vision. Except right now we don't have 12-Bit 4K TVs yet, so 10-Bit panels can only reproduce a fraction of true HDR Dolby Vision, but can display full HDR10.

Which is why currently right now I actually prefer HDR10 over Dolby Vision. I think 4K HDR10 content on Amazon Prime Video looks better than 4K HDR Dolby Vision content on Netflix or Vudu. Which is why I wish LG would push an update that lets me choose between which HDR standard to use when watching 4K HDR content on my 4K HDR OLED Smart 3D TV.(OLED65C6P)

I got the TCL 55" from Costco for $349 Black Friday and it's a damn good TV. Not quite as good as the M series, but the Roku is awesome. If you can spend $700-1000 get an M from Costco, if not think about TCL. The TCL P series is one of the highest reviewed TVs at any price and it's only $650.

Be aware this is an IPS panel(degraded picture over VA), last year's model, refurbished and imo not worth it.
