Concur on 6350 vs Vizio M series
Just wanted to chime in. I really wanted to love the Vizio M602i-B3. Local dimming, etc, and the blacks were deep and dark, but the video processing on that TV S U C K S. I do most of my TV watching from a media center PC, so I realize that signal MAY be a little bit less stable than a STB (not sure though, just a guess?). I tried 2 of that model Vizio (thinking the first may have been defective). There were a lot of re-producable artifacts, like twitching, stuttering, etc. I tried EVERY setting on my HTPC's video drivers with some improvements here are there, but any change that solved 1 problem usually introduced another. Oddly, the Vizio seemed to like 1080i 30Hz better than 1080p 60Hz, but there were other artifacts when in 1080i. In addition, motion resolution LOOKED horrible on the Vizio (not sure how vizio measures officially), and turning on any level of motion settings improved motion but resulted in REALLY BAD soap opera effect - no go.
I decided to give a UN60H6350 a try, and WOW, what a world of difference! Everything better, with the exception of blacks. I LOVE the flexibility in the motion settings. To my eyes, Clear is great, nice looking motion with little or no soap opera effect.
I shied away from the 6350 based on the CNET review. I wonder if their reviews are all based on measurements and not actual sustained regular viewing, because the 6350 trumps the vizio in every way (except blacks) that I care about in regular viewing. I realize those pro reviewers put contrast above everything which is why they love the 2014 vizios. They even mention video processing not being as good on the Vizio as other TVs, yet that is not critical to them? Twitching and stuttering and poor motion is ok if contrast is better? Strange.
For those on the fence, go Samsung.
BTW - I also tried a Sony W850B. Very nice TV, but very visible clouding and some problems in video processing as well. Sammys seem to have the best video processing (critical!) to my eyes.
