I got the 48" and it has a TS01 (Samsung) panel. I used Cnet's settings to calibrate it. How do I check the wattage?

Novice question. For someone who is going to watch blue-ray movies, HD-TV & Sports, which would be better a 60" M series or a 65" E series? Thanks for any input.

Not sure if this was mentioned but...

I was just re-reading the PR announcement (http://store.vizio.com/news/vizio-announces-2014-e-series-and-m-series-hdtv-collections) and noticed it states "Advanced Local Dimming" on the E series but not on the M.

The M series section only mentions Full Array LED Backlighting with Active Pixel tuning. Does this mean the Active Pixel tuning will take over the responsibilities of what Local Dimming would do for the M's? From the description of how APT works it sounds like it can do something similar to Local Dimming.

I suspect the PR for the M series will be along the same lines as the PR for the E series, that is to say after some models have been launched but before the entire line up is launched. Perhaps it's when all models are finalized in terms of actually getting produced but it may be just whenever Vizio feels like getting around to it.

In any event it's time for Vizio to give their reps more updated information as it'll get ridiculous for them to tell your customers of a Summer launch when stock becomes available from outside retailers. I mean you don't tell a customer who wants to give you their hard earned money that they're not available yet. They need a pep talk from the Alec Baldwin character in Glengarry Glen Ross. biggrin.gif

The E series has local dimming with up to 16 zones. For the M series it will be 16 zones for models under 49 inches and 32 zones for models 49 inches and higher. Pixel tuning is a feature that's suppose to bring brightness back to a dimmed zone at the pixel level.

All else being equal bigger is better especially for the content you mentioned. But the 65 inch panel may also be better - see post 2464.

Hello guys,

 

Was hoping someone here might be able to help, or point me in the right direction.

 

First off, I'm not sure if my Vizio is a 2014 model...I just purchased it about 2 weeks ago on Amazon...It's the Vizio M601D-A3R model. So if this isn't the right thread...I apologize.

 

Basically I'm having some issues with calibration...Every guide I read online is saying to put the Red/Green/Blue "offset" to numbers above 100 but my Color Tuner settings only allow me to go from -100/100? I can't seem to find anything about this online...What gives?

 

Thanks...

You have a 2013 model - you may have better luck with your question here

Had not seen that PR - thanks.

18 dimming zones on the 70" E - had not seen that either.

Vizio put out that PR on February 26th, and the key element seems to be this: "now available at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, VIZIO.com and Walmart", so rather than the first panels being released or all of the panels being released, a PR may be triggered by the first few panels being available through a number of mainstream channels.

Guess we'll have to wait and see, but from where we are sitting today, it looks to me like the 32", 42" and 65" may be in most f the channels they have listed by the end of May...

And totally agree with you on the pep talk / lecture on Marketing 101 - 'underpromise and overdeliver' is fine in moderation, but they risk losing a number of interested but impatient customers if they keep sandbagging and not communicating the actual status of the various models.

Someone needs to buy the 42" and let us know how it is! I will wait patiently for the 49 or 50, seeing as they have many more dimming zones, but I want to know if the active pixel tuning helps at all.

I had my mom order the 32 for her kitchen yesterday. Not sure on Vizio's fulfillment time. Setting it up should tide me over for a few minutes while I wait for the 70.

Excellent, give us an update once it's set up and you run it thru it's paces!

Great, unload that thing and let us know how the panel is and if the pixel tuning actually does something worth while biggrin.gif

Looks like the M Series product page is up now on Vizio's site and the new 2014 M Series are available!  FWIW I ordered the M422i-B1 from Amazon a couple of weeks ago, and the delivery estimate is May 14 - 22.

At the time of posting, just the 32" and 42" 2014 models are listed at Vizio.com. This is mostly consistent with what Amazon has been showing: that these two sizes (along with the 65" perhaps) are the first acceptable units to roll off the line. Amazon may be a good way to get a glimpse of what's coming, at least a couple weeks in advance. These three models have been listed for that long, and now here they are on Vizio's own store.

The two tv's you are talking about have been up for weeks on vizio's site. I almost spilled my drink when I thought you were right and refreshed vizio's website only to be dissapointed...

My roommate moved out a month ago and I was trying to wait for the series to come out, but I ended up buying the 55" E yesterday from best buy. I'm just hoping the 60" M comes out in the next 30 days so I can return the E.

Did the people at best buy specifically said you had 30 days? I thought it was 90.. This is the standard in most places.

Best Buys actual standard policy is only 15 days, for elite members it's 30 and elite plus 45 days.
I already marked my calendar for day 29 to take it back. If the 60" M is not out by then I will just ask for store credit.
I truly wanted the P series but there's no telling when that will come out.

I was planning on getting the 14' M series. And then exchange it for a P series. Probably wont be able to pull it off i guess..

Buying a TV with the intent to return it is dishonest at best, and could be construed as theft.

In an ideal scenario all lines and sizes would be released by April but since that's not the case I am hoping I can last until the M and then switch out. And hopefully by then Vizio will make any sort of announcement about the P series other than "fall".

It is not "theft" when I am paying full price for the tv, and if this was stealing retailers would not let you do exchanges on perfectly working products (most stores will do 90 days). If anything Vizio should be better at communicating a more specific date for the P series release or for the M series for that matter.

I agree, it's not theft. Plus it's my first vizio purchase, always been a samsung guy. I still have the plastic wrap over the screen and on top of the remote.
In case this product sucks, I want to take it back just how I got it. Retail is getting their money regardless.
