My local BestBuy has the 65" on display at the MSRP. I gotta tell you...it's a mirror.
The info card said they also have the 55" and 60", but did not list the 70"

Weird how the picture shows Costco but the Vizio Facebook posting and blob says "We are excited to announce that the new VIZIO M-Series Razor LED Smart TVs are now available at Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart and VIZIO.com.

Wonder why they did not say Costco or any of the other brick and mortar stores that are shown the M-Series picture?

I noticed this in the cnet update:

Vizio also mentioned that, like all of its 65-inch passive 3D TVs, the 65-inch M651d will have the glass pattern retarder finish, which results in the glossy screen we disliked so much on models like the M3D651SV. The other 3D sizes will have a matte or at least semigloss film pattern retarder, like the M3D0KD, while the smaller non-3D sets will be straight matte.



Unusual, but it seems the 65" has a different - and more reflective - screen finish than the other tv's in the M line.

I hope the 70 is out soon.. It is driving me nuts..

Is there any advantage to this screen? Why do they use it?
post #579 of 8813
It is related to polarization for the passive 3D. From what I understand, the glass pattern retarder (GPR) is the more expensive method vs the Film Pattern Retarder (FPR) that the other displays use. It looks like GPR is used by AU Oprtics and FPR (applying a thin film to the glass) is used by LG. It would be interesting to see a comparison review of the 3D for both methods

My guess would be that due to Costco selling them at less than MSRP, they don't get mentioned.

Generally the extra clear panels have better overall contrast.

I prefer to have a matte or semi matte (like the rest of them) so that reflections are reduced. Can't see that awesome contrast when I can see myself in the TV wink.gif

Here is a video using purity slides show "Smart dimming" feature. I have noticed it during non-letterbox material every time scene would change,so used slides to check.

Hmmm...M601d for $1499+ or a P60ST60 for $1,316?

Congrats to all that have theirs the feedback is awesome for all of us looking to purchase.
Sucks about the remote though. I would be curios if anyone has got it running with a logitech or similar?

How glossy is the 65" with GPR compared to the samsung 8000 series?

If it isn't any glossier than the samsung then I can deal with it because it will be replacing a 46" 8000 series Samsung

Do you notice it or is it bothersome when watching a darker movie like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings (local dimming anomaly)?

Is the glow on the bottom-right and left corners always there?

That is simply how Vizio's Smart dimming functions. The glow you see at the bottom corners are the LED's illuminating the "Play" icon on the wow disc. If you notice on the video the top 3/4's of the display are solid black,because the smart dimming feature only turns on the areas needing lit. It is similar to blooming found on other local dimming sets. I have only really noticed during sudden scene changes like really choppy cuts in film and some trailers that are spliced together. Didn't notice anything in Prometheus,Wall-E or Tron:Legacy which switches from widescreen to IMAX "Full" screen material.

Went to my local Best Buy and they had a 55" on display. 1st impression is very good. I thought that picture looked pretty good out of the box, didn't get to check out 3D. Will have to bring a USB stick with me next time. The remote was working fine and responded to my every click. 3D button gives you a choice between SBS, OU and Sensio 3D (whatever that is). No 2D to 3D conversion that I found and I don't really care for it anyway. I think this TV is a good bang for the $$$.

I'm waiting on my refund check from Samsung for a 46" ES800. Was going to get the Sony W900, but figured maybe I should save some dough and get the new Vizio.

I'm interested in a 60", but Vizio.com seems to be the only ones who has them as of right now.

Got my arc to work, it kept resetting on audio control when futzing with CEC. All good now. Vizio better not change remotes a month after release, better be something in the TV.

Sensio 3D allows you to use the 3DGO! app. You can see the selection of 3D films here:

has the M801d-A3 hit anywhere yet?

my 60" sharp is too small :P

edit: do these support MKV playback? (I have an HTPC already, just curious)

cool.gif Good news! Katzmaier updated his post with more detail about the remotes...

Update: According to Vizio, the Wi-Fi and universal remote capabilities won't be available initially; instead they will be activated via an automatic Internet-delivered update sometime during the summer.

Well, so far, Amazon has three ratings on the M-series. They are all 5 stars, and all three rave about how nice they look... I'll be ordering mine Friday ( M501d). I would have already, but I was waiting for the "Usually ships in 1 to 2 months" statement to change.

How wide is the 60" model? No specs on the Vizio site.
post #595 of 8813
Dimensions
With Stand: 53.64”W x 33.56”H x 10.40”D
Without Stand: 53.64”W x 30.90”H x 2.22”D
post #596 of 8813
does anyone know how to make this TV auto-recognize 3D SBS.mkv files from computer connected via HDMI as 3D files. Since I can't activate the 3D function manually on hdmi input. Now i've to convert it to mp4 file less than 4GB and play through usb. thanks

I used the settings posted here by DrShankenstien as a starting point and made some further adjustments for my TV and it's fantastic, loving it so far with zero issues (besides the time). I seem to be getting better at finding the place to point the remote at as well... can't wait for the update for that.

Also I kept on getting re-upped as premiere silver at Best Buy without really buying anything from them over the last 2 or so years, when i bought the TV found out I get a free calibration with it. No idea how good "geek squad" is at calibration though if I decide to go through with it. If they just come and use the same discs as I do, its not a real calibration.

Can anyone who owns one of these confirm any issues with banding or edge bleed? I'm debating on selling my LG LM6700 and getting an M series due to the LG's terrible edge bleed and LG's reluctance to fix it.
