That picture looks like crap. Swap it out. That xbox screen image looks horrible. My 3rd one is as good as it gets for a lcd.

LCD screens were meant to be small and when you jump up to these bigger sizes all the flaws of the technology rear its ugly head.

Probably because they made so many more of the 55" than the other sizes, that being the sweet spot size and price wise for most people. QC tends to suffer later in production runs, imho, and that's if they don't start just swapping in cheaper parts altogether. The 55" M series dropped from a 240hz to a 120hz panel right around this time last year. Hopefully that won't happen again...

That's why I'm getting mine in 5 days.

The above picture is SMART DIMMING OFF.




The above is SMART DIMMING ON.

Smart dimming brought down that bottom right corner a bit in terms of the bleed, but it's still quite noticeable.  I suppose I'll contact Amazon about getting it replaced.

I've also been noticing an issue with screens with complete color (white/green).  I just noticed it again after just getting home from work and setting up my new Xbox one.  Black lines are bleeding out from the edges.  No idea what's causing this. I noticed it on all white screens using FIOS, but I assumed it was a signal issue.  I guess it's not.




The black lines coming from both the left and right are what I'm seeing on the actual screen, it's not the camera on my iPhone.  Contacting Amazon after the weekend with my new Xbox One to discuss replacing I suppose.
What size/ model is this just out of curiosity.

If you're having problems with instability from sources routed through an Onkyo receiver (as I was), try this fix from the Onkyo manual to disable the receiver's Deep Color processing (you can still get it from your blu ray player or other device):
If the picture on your TV/monitor connected to
HDMI OUT is unstable, try switching the
DeepColor function off
To turn off the DeepColor function, simultaneously
press the CBL/SATand ON/STANDBYbuttons on
the AV receiver. While holding down CBL/SAT, press
ON/STANDBYuntil “Off” appears on the display.
Then, release both buttons. To reactivate the DeepColor
function, repeat the above process until “On” appears
on the display and release the buttons.

Apparently Deep Color is automatically activated on many devices and if it is processed again by the receiver it can cause glitches. Worked for me.

If you have a playstation 4 hooked up don't forget to enable CEC for it...pretty sweet. Turn on the PS4 and the TV turns on and goes to the right input automagically. The PS4 setting to look for says something like Enable HDMI data link under video options.

I just purchased this TV in 40 inch and i came from a 2008 vizio 480p TV.  I was expecting a lot better quality? Maybe i have my setting not right or something?

 

The TV looks pixely Around edges of stuff? Like picture around peoples outlines is not sharp or something..   And without my contrast really high 90+ On my xbox one friend screen it can see like there name then like little outlines around there name like it is same letters..  

 

I dont want to give up on the TV just yet tho.  But i was expecting this $500 dollar purchase to be a big upgrade from my old tv?  Anyone have any good calibrations for the 40" inch?

post #5619 of 8760
Pixelation is most likely coming from your source, especially if you're talking about cable/satellite. As far as outlines on text, you probably have sharpness cranked too high.

You will have to look back but Ursa's setting look real good on the 40".

As for the fuzz around text and such try what Waylo suggested and check your sharpness and bring it down.

Do you know what page it is on?

 

Also i noticed some weird looking pixels on very outside line of my screen i adjusted the screen so it does not show up on tv now..  Not sure if that is normal or not..   My last tv was lcd.

Do a search for "Ursa".

I Used his setting, I don't understand why my netflix (with HD movies) and movies look like i am still using a tube TV? The quality is just not there for me..  

 

Guess i will and stop rent a blue ray tonight just to see if it changes anything..  Guess if i cant figure it out i might as well return it and use my older vizio tv for the same type quality and get my $500 back...   I really figured it would have changed more then it shows.. 

post #5624 of 8760

I only use the TV with movies, netflix and xbox one. I don't have cable TV.   But every show/movie i have tried has looks pretty crappy..  Only thing i find that looks pretty good n the tv is nba 2k 2014 on xbox one. And i got my sharpness set to 20

post #5625 of 8760
In general I think Netflix is a pretty poor barometer because the quality of the picture is highly dependent on the strength of your internet connection. You said NBA looked good on your Xbox One. What about other games? Have you tried any yet? If they look bad, then there might be a problem.
post #5626 of 8760

The only other game i have is Call of Duty Ghost.  And i don't think it is known for its graphics. I am going to test a blu ray on it tonight and if it looks crappy it will probably get returned..  Blu Ray should be very crisp and Not all edgy/ Pixel'y Looking right? 

post #5627 of 8760
Here is a photo of my new 60" with an all white screen. There is definitely some brightness uniformity issues in the middile of screen, especially at the top and bottom. It IS actually noticable during normal viewing during brighter scenes and I was wondering if this is similar to what everyone else is seeing on their sets. Thanks so much!

post #5628 of 8760
That's a bit more than I have . All these sets suffer from that to a certain degree but that's a bit more than normal. If you cani see it during normal scenes and not all white backgrounds, I'd swap it out. Mine has it along the edges similar to your sides. Your top and bottom are more concern. Pray that OLED comes out quick and cheap. : )

Mine is the same way if I'm playing a 720P game. Anytime you have to upscale on these large sets its going to be far worse than a 42 or 50 inch set. The good news is that 1080p brings the set to a different level. My PS3 games In 1080P look great. Some motion lag but not too bad. I'm waiting on the PS4 which should shine on this set.

Definitely try another source. From what I know, Xbox one games are 720p and upscaled to 1080p. Whereas the PS4 is 1080p natively. And also, I believe someone(ursa?) posted that the 40m does not have the designation model m-401d like the rest of the m-series. However, try out a blu-ray to see if the source is the issue and check the hdmi cable too.

I mostly watch sports, and play my Xbox360 sparingly...I have no idea if I'm getting a PS4 or XboxOne at all. Just really like the expertise of the folks on this forum, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance to any who are willing to help me.

Came from a 46" sammy also. Seems that most m60 owners are happy with their sets. Try it out, as the m-series can hold it's own in terms of PQ. Never owned a Vizio, raised with sony tvs the majority of my life. After reading a lot of positive things about the m-series and comparing brands, I took the dive and I'm very satisfied with my m65. Good luck with the tv hunting.

Just wanted to say the ps4 looks amazing on the vizio 70".

Believe the D in the model number designates a 3D set. The 32, 40, and 47 " are all "i" designation and none are 3D capable as to where the 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, and 80" all have D in the model number and are 3D capable.

Purchased the 40 inch size, plugging it into my Comcast Cable Box and notice that the bottom text is stretched out to where it's cut off. I tried to change the position, but they're stuck at 16 and 32, and grayed out. Any ideas?
post #5635 of 8760
Have you ever thought about the square trade warranty? For a $600 tv,I think it would be $60 at Costco. It extends the warranty for 3 years.
post #5636 of 8760
Hello,I am thinking about the M series 501 this came up. "Someone else pointed it out but I confirmed it last night for my set. As long as the vizio remote is the only one that turns the set off it works every time, I turned the tv off with my harmony and just like that the vizio remote did not work anymore." I have my own universal remote. My wife has her own universal remote. Does that mean that if I turn the tv off,my wife won't be able to turn it on and visa versa?
Thanks.
post #5637 of 8760
I use my DirecTV remote to turn the TV on and off almost exclusively and have never encountered an issue when trying to use the Vizio remote.
post #5638 of 8760
Thank you. Do you have the 2013 M series?. They have different type remotes.

Makes sense. Good looking out.

I have the M801d and use my dish remote and vizio remote interchangeably with no problems.
