Can't seem to find a review on the M3D550SL, but from what I can gather, the M3D550SL is the upgrade to the M3D550KD.

On Vizio's website, they say that the M3D55SL doesn't have have smart dimming, that's all I can see that is different.

But, if you look at their M3D550KD page, it too says it doesn't have smart dimming. But....Cnet reviews saying it does. So which is it?

My brother may be getting a M3D550SL from Costco for Christmas. Really nice looking set. S-IPS panel with dark filter over the top. Glossy-esh screen. LED backlighting. Very nice.

Yes but the M3D550SL have the same dimming features for the deep blacks that the M3D550KD has?

There is no way to tell, as I don't see ANY reviews on the M3D550SL, and the visio website says the M3D550SL doesn't have the dimming feature, but it also says the M3D550KD doesn't have it, but Cnet reviews saying it does, which is why they love this tv.

The KD is actually the upgrade. It is 240hz as opposed to the 120hz of the SL. The contrast is 10 million to 1 the KD compared to the I believe 200,000 : 1 of the SL. Those among other features make the KD the upgrade to the SL.
