Question 2014 Vizio P70 Replacement?

So my 2014 Vizio P70 has a stuck pixel in the middle of the screen. Bestbuy warranty sent me a gift card for my original purchase price of $1800 AND let me keep my current TV. I've been reading this site a lot lately to try and find something to replace my TV with. Currently the TV just has the annoying dead pixel, that I don't always see, so it doesnt have to be replaced right now. I want something with low latency for gaming on my xbox one s, and have narrowed down my choices to either the Vizio M70-D3 ($1650 on BF if I pricematch costco), or the Samsung UN70KU6300 ($1250 on BF if I pricematch costco, though their model is the 630D, so i'm not sure if I can PM, otherwise its 1400). I would assume either of these displays should be an upgrade to the 2014 p70 that I have. I also beleive I can sell my current P70, even with the stuck pixel in the neighborhood of 500-700, so I could get a more expensive TV, but anything in the 75" range jumps up to 2600 for the 2015 Samsung 7100 (not sure if this is worth it, but does seem to have low input lag) and then up to $3500 on BF for the Vizio P75. Any other TV's i've found from LG and Sony are high input lag. So what say you AVSForum? Am I missing any TV's meeting my requirements?

Wow you paid $1800 -- that was a good price! Some say if you push on the pixel areas, sometimes you can get a pixel to unstick, but you could end up with more stuck pixels.

I had a '14 P70 that had a vertical line of dark pixels and was refunded. I was torn between '16 P75 and '16 M80 -- bigger won out, as I always considered 80" to be the sweet spot.

You might also consider the LeEco uMax85 Ecotv, as 85" is even sweeter lol, $4999 but has gone on sale for $3999 too which would be a steal!: http://www.lemall.com/us/tv/leeco_umax85/index.html

Unfortunately BB doesn't sell the m80, or I probably would have went that route (gift card), as Costco has it for 3699.
Do you feel the M80 is a better display other than the size of the 2014 p70?

Comparable in some ways, not in others. If they made a P80 then I would have bought that, but overall this set does what I need and looks good. M displays are not better than P displays, if you compare specs, even the '14 P has more LED zones than the '16 M, for instance.

Biggest issue for me is lack of Amazon Video support (no Cast or Apple TV support, workaround is AirPlay to a connected Apple TV), but that's Bezos being Bezos (bozos? lol). Also has no tuner, but with ATSC 3.0 right around the corner, an included tuner would be soon obsolete if not upgradeable via firmware or as a user replaceable module.
