Here we go again... The new 80" M announced at CES does not have an "A" or "B" in it. It says "(M801i) $3,299.99 (MSRP)" Does that make it a 2014 model or a 2013 model?

Well none of the models in the CES press releases had the full number (i.e. with "-B0", "-B1", etc), if I recall. But every 2014 E-series that's actually shipped has used this convention.

I've been following these threads specifically waiting for news on the 2014 80" M, but so far all that's come out has been the smaller E-series sizes. The largest has been the 2014 60" E which just got added to Costco's site in the last couple days.

Let's just say I don't believe the 2014 80" M is suddenly the first M-series out of the gate (as much as I'd like it to be).

Are we sure it isn't the new "stripped down" "A" 80" model that a few people have sighted recently?

Well, it's possible there isn't going to be a FALD 80" M-series in 2014. The M801i-A3 is a new TV for 2014. Do you think Vizio is also going to introduce a FALD M801i-Bx in 2014?

2014 80" M doesn't have a B in the model name. It's a strip down 2013 without 3D.

Hmmm, i wonder if the Vizio M will be as bright or brighter than my previous LG LK450 LCD. That set could produce one super bright picture, but it's lack luster black levels and motion handleing(it was a VA panel, i also had a smaller LD450 'IPS' panel that had superior motion) AND back light bleeding and clouding eventually took their tole on me and i ventured off into plasma territory. :P But now that plasma is practically dead, and the fact that most of which produce a dim picture, ABL a plenty if the dim picture already wasn't bad enough', Temporary TV staining IR, lack of pop, Glare(gaming or watching content in a bright room isn't an option. sigh*), dithering, less crisp/clean image, Heavier build, electricity bill sucking parfait and potential bumble bee buzzing, has made it all the more easier to make the LED transition. it's a matter of picking your poisin, and my new poison will be full array LED.

My two options so far are the 55" Vizio M and 55" Toshiba L7400 cool.gif

Well I guess no one knows for sure. I'm really hoping they're still going to have a "proper" 2014 80" (i.e. FALD).

I'm replacing a projector and 92" screen (ruined by a burst water pipe) and 80" is a good replacement if I move the seats up a tad. I think 70" will be too small. Seems like there are actually less 80" TVs then last year, which makes no sense to me.

I just purchased the M551d to replace my 2012 Panasonic U50 Plasma in the bedroom...It crapped out on me. I really am hoping that they release the 2014 models before my return period ends. I like the 2013 model a lot. Other than  the standard LED problems. But, I knew that would be the case going in. But, I would love to have FALD over the edge lit in the current line up. The flash lighting isn't so bad on my model. I enjoy having 3D (even though I haven't used it). But, I would take superior PQ over 3D any day of the week.

Hello Everyone (first post long time reader)

 

I considering buying this tv for my living room my question is the following.

What is the native speed?  120Hz or 240Hz? this is what I see for description:

Clear Action 720 - Enhanced motion clarity with 240Hz effective refresh rate 

 

Thanks

Native refresh speed of the panel is 120Hz with a base level of scanning backlight to bring effective refresh rate up to 240Hz (4.2ms pixel ON time).

The 720 Clear Action Rate indicates that the segments of the scanning backlight are controlled at 720Hz and it is possible that in some specific settings like Cinema Dark there could be some further blur reduction available. Since the backlight on the 65" M is 400 nits, further reducing pixel ON time to 2.8ms (~360Hz) would only reduce brightness to 133 nits, still plenty bright for dark room viewing.

According to Vizio the 60" 2014 M series set has been released. The model number is M602I-B3. Now it's just a matter of finding a store that has it. I'm hoping that Costco will carry it soon,. If anyone happens to see it at Costco please post that information. Thanks.

These two threads have a lot of info regarding the set. A few guys have already purchased the M602I-B3 from Costcos.

Thanks, rcwillis. I was just at my local Costco this weekend and they didn't have it yet, but I guess it's time to start making some calls!

Just called my local Costco. They do have it in stock now. Regular price is $1,199; they have a $100 instant rebate on it right now if anyone is interested.
