Motion rating for the Sony X990F is 8.7 for motion and 8.1 for sports versus 7.6 motion and 7.8 sports. So that answers your question, this Vizio model will not be as smooth as the X990F you have. I think that was a given though considering a 55" X990F is going for $1400 @ Best Buy and this model is only $999.
Overall the ratings are 8.3 for X990F and 8.1 for Vizio M658-G1 which is not bad at all.
Pros for Vizio
65" ($999) vs 55" X990F ($1400 at Best Buy)
Cons for Vizio
Overall not as good compared to the X990F but is cheaper by $400
Closing thoughts about the review for the M658-G1 and my picks for 55" and 65" TV
It's hard to see TV's with good uniformity in this price range, i noticed it with this model when i had it. The TCL 6 Series also suffers for uniformity issues which is the dirty screen effect. I wouldn't be unreasonable and say it's a deal breaker, since every other TV in this price range has this similar effect.
Edit: I projected the Vizio M658-G1 to have a 8-8.2 rating (in my previous posts). The TCL 6 Series (2018) comes in at a rating of 8 vs 8.1 on the M658-G1. These ratings definitely don't define which model to get, as you have to check the specifics in what you like in a TV. Lots of categories like, Movies, Tv Shows, Sports, Video Games, HDR Movies, HDR Gaming, PC Monitor. The review also has scores for Design, Picture Quality, Motion, Inputs, Sound Quality, Smart Features.
With that said my personal go to pick would be this model (Vizio M658-G1) over the TCL 6 Series 65" (going for $1200 at Best Buy). TCL might somewhat be better subjectively but it's definitely not worth the extra $200 for the 65" model.
If you're ok with a 55" model then the TCL 6 Series 55" is available at Costco for $720. Whether you think $279 is worth an extra 10" screen size or not gives you one of the two choices...
My Recommendation (if you want a 55" or 65" TV)
65" TV: Vizio M658-G1 $999 (Costco, on sale)
55" TV: TCL 6 Series 55" $720 (Costco, regular price)
This sums up my brief but extensive 2 week research on 4K TV's and which to get in the $700-$1100 price range lol, hope this helped.

I doubt it's under $1000. It makes things complicated for those who bought the extended warranty because sub $1000 the price on the warranty is $40 cheaper.

There's no way, this is a new 2019 model. Had a few at my local Costco the day before the previous deal ended. Also saw a skid on the very top shelf that looked like the same model, not sure though.

I just called Costco and the TV is going for $999.99 instore. This makes the deal even better as now you can save on the warranty too

It must be very location dependent then. I know a few weeks back I went to three different Costco locations out west and they got rid of all instore Vizio models, even the demo units which had been reduced in price.

That's actually surprising. Makes the warranty way more worthwhile since you'd be paying $60 for $999 TV (6%'ish) versus $100 for $1030 TV (10%'ish). Paying 6% of the cost of the TV for extended 5 year warranty is a no brainer..jetertmac wrote: ↑ I just called Costco and the TV is going for $999.99 instore.

As for clearing them out already part, the 2018 models have been cleared out a great prices which is making room for the newer 2019 models like the one OP posted.
