I caved in and ordered a 49" M series from Amazon today with a Saturday delivery. I've been without a bedroom television since last September and I convinced myself that I don't need the P series for a secondary television. I feel a little apprehensive at the moment since I've been one one the biggest cheerleaders of the M and P series and I would hate to end up not liking it.
Outside of the horrible blooming and light bleeding issues I thought the 2013 M series was a pretty slick television so I'm fairly optimistic. The low setting for SME was quite natural to my eyes, audio was decent for internal speakers, VIA apps plus was well designed being responsive and performance was great. I know Amazon VOD will be the newer full screen version though I may have to wait for it with my particular unit. I'll have no issues with the furnish remote since it will never be used by me.
I'm just hoping I agree with Katzmaier on shadow detail, uniformity and vanquishing blooming. I'm also hoping color accuracy isn't way off on my unit.
I'm still hoping to replace my 60" Samsung with a 70" P series somewhere down the line.
