I guess when I read about how many people have had to go through 3-4-5 units before getting a good one - that I might rather do those exchanges locally vs. doing it via a shipper through Amazon.
Also, several posters raved about how they wouldn't buy a TV from anyone by Costco - for the easy 90 day return policy service level they receive for the first 2 years of the warranty.
These are the things that have me asking if I should buy local or not.
hi i just picked up this tv yesterday and i want to adjust picture settings. I have looked at the ursa settings but am little confused. My model is the 65in one. my red/blue gain start at 500( middle of the scale). I believe 100s will be low. On the picture it shows it in the middle but when i just changed red gain to 140s its all the way to the left of the scale.
Does anyone else have weird colors going on when like say someone on youtube is using a flashlight or something? Like where it should be black its greenish colors in the black..
I can't be bothered to read all 5000 posts.
I am the owner of a sony 65" 4k tv, and want a larger tv in the sitting room.
I have had my eyes on the Vizio MDR 70" or 80"
Is there any difference between the 70" and 80" quality wise? Does either have more problems than the other?
One of the biggest attractions for me is the passive 3d, like my Sony.
Also i wanted to ask how the vizio sound bar is. I'm sure quite a few of you own one.
I recently bought a vizio m551d-a2r and I was wondering if anyone has used spears and munsil 2nd edition to calibrate it? I am thinking about buying it because it has the 3d calibration too. Can the vizio m551d take full advantage of the spears and munsil disc? is it worth investing the 30$? I am thinking about getting a calibration disc, but if the Discs posted here http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/avs-hd-709-blu-ray-mp4-calibration are just as good then id probably do that instead.
No, i will not be disappointed.
They are two completely different tv's and must not be compared.
I actually feel, that an 80" would immerse me more. I know the 3d is excellent on the Vizio.
I also have an Oppo blu ray player that can simulate 3d. I know the vizio does not.
I just picked up the M series 65" a few days ago and overall I am very pleased. The calibration settings from C net seem to work pretty well I only had to tweak the brightness. One thing that I am struggling with though is the picture differences between TV and movies. For some reason some TV shows seem to have a really bad soap opera effect and its annoying. I cant seem to find any consistent reason for it... old shows, new shows, channels, time of day, etc... I ordered a calibration disk to fiddle some more... Any suggestions?
I love the TV overall and the 3D is amazing! I also agree the remote sucks but I havent had the issues many others have. The only other neg comment is a keyboard on the remote would be good and the gloss finish on the screen is too glossy, some times, depending on the window and sun's location. I put up some blinds and a curtain and thats been addressed. :)
Bought it at BB, they honored amazons price including the $100 off for prime members, $1648, not bad :)
I was driving myself a little crazy over-analyzing things (I think I've covered over 100 pages of this thread in the past 3 days). So I took the plunge and bought a 70" at Sam's tonight - praying I got a good one (or my wife might do bad things to me with a return).
Unfortunately I might not get it set up tonight, or the next few days (lot going on). But at least it's in the house!
Maybe a silly question - how should I get the 70 out of the box?
- Slit the top, turn it upside down, and lift the box out?
- Slit the top, lay the box down flat and pull it out (it's in there pretty snug)?
- Something else (I'd rather not destroy the box if I don't have to - in case I need to return it)?
My wife is a little ticked at me tonight and isn't in the most helpful mood. I probably don't have a lot of her time to borrow to get this thing out and up on my stand.
