Vizio 65" M650VSE or Vizio 60" E601-A3 for Black Friday?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So,

I've been mulling over these two options for the past week after the Black Friday ads leaked and was wanting to get this community's thoughts on the matter.

At Sam's Club they will have the M650VSE on sale for $998, while Walmart will simultaneously have the E601-A3 on sale for $688. Looking at the two sets, I do notice some differences that may affect which one to go after...

E601-A3 pros:
Has a more slim frame
Slightly better response time (4ms vs 5.5)
4 HDMI ins instead of 3
DLNA support
Price ($300 less)

M650VSE pros:
5" larger

In my mind, I'm thinking that I would like DLNA support for my Android devices, though I haven't seen it in action to know if it warrants seeking out the E601-A3 isntead. And maybe this is something that will be added to the firmware of the M650VSE down the road?

My real back and forth about this though is paying $300 for the extra 5" of viewability; I figure there are others on here who either made the jump on other comparable sets etc, and wanted to know their thoughts on whether its worth it for the more space.

Also, I mean to say sorry if I placed this in a wrong subforum, or if it belongs in an existing discussion thread etc.

I have read elsewhere that they have the same board so the 60" might provide you with a slightly better picture. (Don't however, quote me on that.) With that said, if money was no option I would go bigger but since it is, I can't justify paying 300 for 5 more inches of diagonal. I will be buying the 60"er on Amazon or Wal-Mart (Backup plan) Sunday or Friday.

E60 is supposed to be $698 at Sam's Club this Sunday night for the early Black Friday event.

I believe that the 60" goes on sale Thursday evening at 10 PM, in store only. Aye ! There's the rub. I did some scouting yesterday, they were NOT in the stores. So often, we do not have to make decisions, they are made for us. Happy shopping !

Thanks for the info, I think I'm going to try and go after the 65" wish me luck!

I was able to score one last night on the website, it crashed a few times when the deals hit at 8pm PST, but finally went through, just glad I don't have to wait hours in a line tomorrow

you may want to double check and make sure your order didn't get cancelled. Seems to have happened a lot.
