The M looks better than the E. The M's extra dimming zones and ability to make highlights sparkle allows it to pull ahead. Also, if you are willing to use motion interpolation to increase resolution, it can look quite stunning. Motion processing is vastly improved over other TVs I've seen, Avatar looked fluid as opposed to artificial. Normally I'd never step into the quicksand trap of actually recommending the "soap opera effect," but on the Vizio M I think it could be fun with the right movies; flicks like like Pacific Rim, or animated films.
Anyhow, even without motion processing, I thought the M beat the E because the backlit local dimming was harder to detect on the M than the E. Also, at the 60-inch size I found the M had a wider viewing cone than the E. I found the E's image fell apart rapidly if you don't sit in the center.
