Since the new Reference, P, M and E series have been announced maybe those of us with an interest can post our comment here instead of cluttering up the Vizio M series thread. At some point we can start a thread for each model.

No 3d for 2014 M model? I think that's a huge mistake

Gravity was awesome in 3d!

Exactly.

3D is NOT dead, far from it.

Huge mistake.

Strange decision for Vizio to ditch 3D; I felt like they and LG had the best application of it. Can anyone confirm that the M series sets are going full-array now?

I'm excited for the new 70" M. Prices for the new E and M have been released. $1900 for the new M. No word on the new P or Reference series yet.

Personally, I think the P series would fit my needs providing I can get it in a 70".

No Doubt! I'd love to do a 70" P series but I don't think it will be in my budget. frown.gif

If the M 70" clocks in at $1900 I'd guess the 70" P will probably be around twice that amount since it's a 4K display but I could be waaaay off on that. Price speculation on my part probably isn't a good thing on newly released TV's. smile.gif

Wow. That's less than the current 70" M. It'll be interesting to see what happens to 2013 model prices when these are available.

Hopefully more info. today or tomorrow will be released by Vizio in regards to availability dates. However, the article posted above states more info. on the M series will be available later this year. That leads me to believe the E series will be released relatively soon (2-3 months) and the M series may not make it out the door until July or so, but that is pure unprofessional speculation on my part!

I don't see where it discusses 3D in the reference series on their ces.vizo.com site. Does someone have a different link? Any idea if it will be passive or active on the 4k sets (passive please!)?

Any speculation on the price for the 120" set? Or release date?

Other sizes? The site only says "up to 120"?

I applaud the move away from 3D. Now they can focus R&D time and money into making the image quality better instead of wasting precious resources on a gimmick called 3D.

I think they saw the handwriting on the wall for 3D and decided not to keep the dying patient on life support. 3D was always a gimmick, especially active 3D. It was the "next big thing" to try and get us to buy new TV's but it did not really work. Even after all these years, there's only a handful of titles available and they aren't exactly cheap. Now that they've got 4K as the next big thing they can let last decade's gimmick finally die out.

Why does it have to be one or the other?

Why not a great 2D image and a great 3D image?

We shouldn't expect a TV to do those 2 things?

Just because a person hates 3D does it mean no one else should be able to enjoy it.

3D is impressive on an 80" Maybe not so much on 50" screen. With passive 3d, there's always new 3d content available. and kids just love it.

Too bad vizio is moving away from it.

Wow $1499.99 for the 65" m-series. That is incredible. I personally am glad 3d has left. Of course it is opinion based.

If anyone runs across prices for the "P" series please post (by size and price). Really interested in 70" if I can afford it smile.gif. The "M" series looks pretty good and I can't believe the price for the 70"!!
However I would really like to go 4K for the future..
Thanks, Gerry

You got to be kidding me eek.gif. $2600 for the P702ui-B3. I was figuring in the vicinity of $3500.. Guess we will find out if the article is correct as I have not been able to find prices anywhere I search.. Only found that Vizio would be releasing prices
closer to availability date..

If those prices are right, I don't know how other manufacturers are going to sell their 4K tv's. You can buy a 58" 4K panasonic for $4500 or you can buy the 60" P-series for $1799.99.

$1,000 for the 50"? I'm going to have eat my words now. My goodness that's an incredible price. I think I know what I'm going to be buying.

Looks like the 65" M Series is $1500 and the 65" P Series with the 4K resolution is $2200, so $700 for the additional full 4K resolution...

If the P series had 3D it would've been an instant buy for me.

Without 3D, TV is useless for me no matter how great the picture quality, I own too many 3D movies.

Damn you Vizio. frown.gif

If those prices hold that is an amazing deal. I may even be able to swing an 80", although that step in size is probably at least another $1500.

Edit:
From the early reports it doesn't appear the P series goes over 70", but maybe that will change.

The(P702ui-B3) for $2,599.99 (MSRP) will be a excellent deal if that's true. I was thinking of going for the Samsung 75" 7100 or 8000 series but for that pricing and back lit local dimming I'll wait until they are released and I'll save the extra money and put it towards a HTPC, PS4 and new sub woofers.
