Hmmm... I just may have to grab a 75"'er as an upgrade from my 2014 P70. But I won't do it right away; rather I'll probably wait for it to get discounted at least by a few hundred bucks on Vizio's...

I use it on my P70 and on the other P's I've calibrated (another P70 and a P60, and at some point I have another friend with a P50 that I should calibrate too) for nighttime mode for the improved...

Regardless, this definitely alleviates my concerns that the 75" M won't perform as well as the 70" or 80" models. Perhaps I'll point it out to be dad who is drastically overdue to replace his 70"...

Probably the first one, since that's a 120 Hz panel, which the 75M is listed as going by having 'effective refresh' of 240 and CA of 720 Hz. Nice find. :)

Its viewing angle is listed as 178/178 (which typically means an IPS panel) instead of 176/176 (which typically means VA).

One thing to note: going by its specifications, I expect it's an IPS panel, not VA, so expect its contrast to take a hit compared to most of the other larger sets in the line. OTOH it may have better...

To be clear for anyone worried that the grayscale is really messed up, the grayscale error in this case is almost solely brightness (due to changes in gamma response); not skews in its balance. So...

The limit is 6 custom settings in addition to the built-in ones. I ran into it myself when trying to save a 7th when I was playing around.

Lossless digital (mostly FLAC) for me. Transcoding on-the-fly to something lossy (MP3, AAC, etc.) is fine when on-the-go though (in the car, out for a walk / jog / hike, etc.)
