Well written and helpful.
Especially thanks for posting your settings for the M552i-B2.
I have tried every M-series "setting" posted that I've come across and overall yours look the best (on my particular set).
To my eyes, the M552i-B2 factory settings are ok for almost everything except the green/red ratios that are key to realistic skin tones.
Also had the same problem with my replaced E55 Vizio .
Like they were calibrated by little green people from Mars...
These new E/M/P Vizio sets have Lots of nice technical features that are not well documented ...example "Using the Color Tuner".
There is a steep learning curve but, when set up properly, they are capable of a great picture.
My only real complaint with the M55 is its somewhat reflective LCD panel. Ours is in the man-cave so it's a controllable issue for us.
Did have to replace a large white lamp next to my viewing seat.
So how does it look?
Watched Nat. Geographic Aerial America show in HD off cable on the M55 and it looked detailed enough to be 4K...Awesome.
Also re-watching first season of LOST (reg DVD not Blu-Ray) with nice Pany Blu-Ray player feeding the M55 and WOW.
JPEGS from USB sticks are displayed extremely well.This M55 has the best (most realistic) picture I've ever seen on a home TV set.
Set up properly, give it good input and it is capable of rewarding you with a kick-ass picture.
Can't wait for the P55...
This forum has much useful info hidden in it for those of us seeking guidance...
