And Clear Action goes up from 180 to 480... I say it is in an improved TV model from 2014, but need the professional review to be sure.

The only difference between the 70" and 80" TV is screen size, weight, and power consumption.

Dissapointing that the 80" has only 32 dimming zones (but fantastic that it is ZfALD ).

It's actually the manual for the 60" as well.

Stupid stand; since it doesn't seem to have alternative holes for mounting the feet, it wouldn't work for my situation, where the cabinet it's sitting on is less wide than the screen.

Otherwise it's specs and design seem to be very close to the 2014 P-Series, except for notably having half as many dimming zones. It even has "Game Low Latency" mode and a special HDMI 5 port.

I notice that the specs say "Refresh Rate: 120Hz (240Hz with Backlight Scanning)" . The class action suit over misrepresenting refresh rates is having its effect .

The Zones will go up imo. Just have to wait at least one year...

I think that Vizio is done with glasses-based 3D. Have any other manufacturers completely abandoned it yet?

EDIT: I may have my answer. From this report on CES:

Quote:
CES was the birthplace of 3D TVs; companies trumpeted the technology in 2013 by cramming it in basically any device that would take it and 3D movies were everywhere. It felt like 3D was here to stay.

At CES 2013 and then 2014, some TV makers like Vizio and Panasonic started rejecting 3D, discovering that it wasn’t working out quite the way they planned. Consumers didn’t want the technology as much as they expected, but many like Samsung and Sony pushed on anyway.

This year, 3D TVs are completely, utterly missing. And it’s great. If you wanted any evidence that they’ve effectively gone nowhere, look to CES 2015.

Samsung announced a number of SUHD new TVs, all of which don’t support 3D. Sony has it’s own UHD TVs which also don’t support 3D, and the same goes for LG.

From what I can tell, there are effectively no major TV makers working on 3D products for 2015.

There were some glasses-free 3D sets shown at CES, but none shipping in 2015.

Is there a 2015 Vizio thread yet? With the E series available on amazon now I thought we'd see some updated reviews.

I have yet to see a professional review yet for any 2015 Vizio TV set. I do not think we will see any Professional reviews until Vizio has had the big PR event in April.

The only 2015 Vizio TV set I have seen in stores so far was the 2015 39" D model TV set which I say is a waste of money as it is a 720P TV set. It seems like it will be at the end of April before stores like Wal-Mart and Best Buy have 2015 Vizio TV sets in stores.

VIZIO M602i-B3 darker spot prob.

Hi all,

Last year I wanted to buy and bought two Vizio TV's.
E and M models.
Lurking here confirmed that it was a reasonable choice.

The problem with the VIZIO M602i-B3 is that there's is a darker spot on the upper left as seen in the attachment.

I really don't know what it is, any ideas?
Thought that such s thing would be rectangular but it's a circle.
Not sure if it was there from the beginning, is apparent in bright whites, bright grays and now is pretty much always there.

That looks like a dimming zone that is not working properly or a burned-out LED on the backlight.

Contact Vizio with that image a and they should get a replacement out to you pronto...

Thanks fafrd,

That's basically what I wanted to know, if I shoud contact support and if they could do something about it.
Don't you find it weird that it's not rectangular though if it's a dimming zone?

Yes, and seems to be much too small for an entire dimming zone of an M60 (4 rows and 8 columns$, which is why I suspect it may just be a single bad LED...

I have a M422i-B1, firmware V1.60.10-018.0000. I have it calibrated using the attached chart. Everything looks very good. I did notice that when watching black & white content and during camera or character movement, there is yellow/orangeish trailing. Before I go randomly messing with the settings, I was wondering if anyone would know what specific setting(s) I should go about changing?
