rtrings.com review had the E600i-B3 model as VA panel and the Vizio M552i-B2 as IPS panel . Looks like I must have confused the . M602i-B3 as a M552i-B2 my bad
I don't know for sure what the M602i-B3 has.
I believe 60" (maybe 65" ) and 70" E and M Vizio are Sharp ASV panels but have not confirmed that.
If I were looking for a 1080p bargain the Vizio E600i-B3 with a VA would be worth a look not the Vizio M552i-B2 with IPS IMO.
I take rtings.com reviews more seriously than C net myself .
rtings liked the Samsung 6350 a little better than the Sony W600B ofc it costs more it should be better . Sony W600B is always Samsung panel all sizes . The rest are mostly AUO AMVA and a few LGD IPS .
I have a 2014 Sony Panel list with everything they make except 2 models that are both unknown VA panels ( either AUO or Samsung both are decent ) . One good thing about Sony is once you know the panel in a model that's what you get .
Samsung 6xxx can be Samsung AUO ,Sharp,CMO and another panel I can't remember you have to get lucky or read up on the panel version codes on the box B4 you buy .
