Also, check for sharpness to set it 0 to 2
BTW - any lower size TV will be looking more detailed vs larger size as you look at the same distance - make sure you are really need 80"
There is no other but 857 in 80", so what do you compare to?

In general the picture is similar to other sets I've seen. Black levels are good but not great. Overall I'm happy with the set.
Mike, Robbin: thanks for the tips.
I stepped back, about 8 feet from the screen, it was still bad when I was there. I will try the setting you guys suggested. My wife was completely not sold on this model due to yesterday's visit
EZ: The BB I went (Tracy, CA) did not have Vizio M801d to compare. I'll try different BB around.
Right now, my alternative is the Sammy 75-F7100. It's 5" smaller and more expensive too. Not necessarily my ideal size and price.
