Not familiar with the Vizio but I owned that Sony for ONE DAY and the irony is that it reminded me of a basic budget Vizio. Hated it! Large size with Zero wow factor. I went from a two yr old Samsung 60D8000 I moved to my Den and there was no comparison on PQ versus the Samsung and in fact it was the worst Sony I've ever seen and thank god I bought it with return rights with Amazon and sent it back the next day and replaced it with slightly smaller 65F8000 - Yes more money but hell that Sony was horrific and while the F8000 is not the Holy Grail Panel it hands down blows away this Sony. I own a 4 yr old Z4100 Sony in the Bedroom that's still an awesome PQ and I'm not anti Sony at all but this thing is a fake LG I suspect carrying a Sony badge.
I don't mean to offend Vizio folks but I owned one a few years ago and gave it away after a few weeks to my daughter as I could not tolerate it's bland PQ that dates back about ten years ago and I fully understand there have been some local dimming quality monster size Vizio's but the basic budget ones are exactly that BUDGET for folks that will never view it after having an F8000 PQ Pop. It takes more than size to equal immersion I learned from this 70" Sony what a big TURD it was!
Sony should be ashamed to place it's badge on this Turd!
