On sale for 1399 in the store.

At a regular price this is a pretty good deal. In store only.

I'd consider this hot, bought the 2015 M60 C3 and love it, the blacks on these are only after OLED I heard

http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/vizio/m-series-2017

10 bit panel with a Peak brightness of 800 nits and 81.93/: 88.86 % of DCI P3 coverage

Last years model launched at $1999 and I don't think it ever came down to $1500. It is still $1799 on Costco.ca.


This years model has a Wide Colour Gamut, higher peak brightness but only half the zones, only 60hz, and no tablet I believe.

This year's model looks like they took away the smart cast tablet remote.

Be cautious when buying 4k TVs. They are not all made the same. Look up and understand the technologies and hardware specs.

How are these compared to their 2015 counterparts? I have the M70 but last year it developed yellow banding (I'll be following up with that Costco warranty when I get some time). Also the picture when compared to my Samsung KS 9000 or Sharp N7000 (2016) is noticeably inferior even though all TVs are tuned. This is more apparent in colour depth.

Yes, it doesn't have a tablet this year. I'm just using my phone to control the tv, don't want to pay extra 300 just for the tablet. Picture quality and sounds are very good.

No sh!t, Sherlock!
If all TVs were made the same, no one would really pay 1k5+, 2k+ for a TV. Everyone would pay $500 for another "same made" TV.

A sensible decision IMO. I don't want to cast to my TV from a phone / tablet. The 2016 models were basically "dumb" displays that didn't have built-in apps and relied on the tablet way too much.

How does this compare to Vizio P65?

https://www.costco.ca/Vizio-P65-C1-65-i ... 99672.html
Here's the main differences between the P & M models (taken from the Verge)
The key differences between the P-Series and M-Series are dimming zones — the M-Series tops out at 32, fewer than the 64 in some of last year’s M models — and effective refresh rate, which is 120Hz compared to the P’s 240Hz. So if you’re a nut for smooth action, the P-Series might be more appealing.

The good news is, that a firmware update is coming this summer for the 2016 and 2017 Vizio TVs that will make them Smart again. Built-in smart apps that can be controlled from the regular controller. Of course, casting from the tablet remote or phone will still work too! Best of both worlds really.

I'm guessing this doesn't come with an ATSC tuner?
