Vizio P75-C1 or M80-D3 Please help me decide!!!

Help!! I am so torn on what to do...I am about to replace a 60" TV with a new one.. My viewing room puts me pretty far from the screen (over 15 feet) and i am trying to decide between the new P75 or the very new (yet to be released i think) M80...Is the hardware upgrades in the P worth the 5 inch reduction in size? I did search through other threads and I believe at closer viewing distances most of us "AVS" type nerds would always rather have the better picture and if needed just move closer but in this case i cant move closer. Either way i've been living with a 60" for a couple of years so a 75 or 80 is a huge increase but boy 80 sure sounds better than 75. They end up being close in price so thats not a huge factor. Its the age old "tastes great vs less filing" argument I guess. Any other major differences between the P & M besides the WCG? I am going to be hanging this on a wall if that matters.

Your viewing distance is quite long. What are your typical viewing patterns? If you mostly watch live or recorded tv, the size will matter more that WCG.

I'm sorta in the same predicament, P75 or M80 when it comes out. However, I currently have the M801i-A3. I sit about 10-11 ft from it and it feels just about right. I even considered going a little bigger like a 88 inch Sammy but my wallet can't take it. I could decrease my viewing distance a little bit but it would throw off the flow of my basement arrangement. So that's my dilemma as well, sacrifice 5 inches and get a few extras (WCG, HDR10, double the dimming zones) or stay at my current size and look at it as an upgrade to what I have because my set doesn't have 4K, HDR or full array dimming. Either way, I would have to get a new stand. Those wide legs won't fit on my current stand!

I just moved, and the only place that makes sense for my couch is 14 feet from my 65in set, i was previously sitting 8ft from it. I'm thinking about going projector.

believe it or not its for my bedroom...my room is a long rectangle and the only option for a bed and a tv is on opposite ends..actually i measured it again today and from the headboard to the opposite wall where tv is is more like 18 feet!!! I watch through a tivo roamio almost always...i do use amazon video and netflix often also but they too come through the tivo. i watch a lot of live tv sports on it also. Even my wife (as hard as it is for her to admit) knows that a 60 TV is too small!!!

P75. Better black levels, 10 bit panel, better color gamut... HDR support. In a case where you are sitting that far back it is less about resolution and more about HDR/blacks, etc.

same boat as OP. But now very worried about how dark people are reporting the M80-D3 HDR. I guess the P is a lot brighter than the M and the M is only an 8-bit panel. I can see why OP went sony940D just to not have these little margins of difference.

We have a 55" Vizio M series in our Master Bedroom we brought down to our family room to use for a few weeks until we decided what our next TV would have been. I'm glad I did, because I really noticed how narrow the viewing cone is to see an ideal picture with good color saturation. Off-axis it looked pretty bad and we have quite a few seats off-axis in the room. For this reason alone I completely dumped Vizio and ended up with an IPS LES from LG, the 75" 75UH8500. Had it installed for one week now and have been very happy with the PQ for both native 4K content and upscaled 1080p which is most of what we watch.

I'd give the LG a serious consideration at nearly $800 cheaper than the P series and having off-axis viewing nearly identical to on-axis viewing.
