I knew this picture would get some talking going on!!!
So ... when I was there I did see the 55" regular E-Series sitting right behind this M-Series 55" and there is a slight difference.
No mind you I went to many other screens like Samsung etc. and this Vizio is a lot more matte them many other makers but it is not as matte as the regular E-Series Vizio's
I was just at a real bright angle on that picture and really the picture actually seems a bit more gloss then it really is but that said it is in fact a tad bit glossier then the E-Series.
After looking at the others I was still Very Okay with this "Semi-Matte" screen over the dull E-Series ... it's not to bad really and I think with it being kinda in between it will help pop out the contract and colors on the screen without having the massive Plasma screen gloss (and yes there a Plasma right next to this one and if you compare the 2 the plasma was WAY glossier then this ... so really I think calling this a "Semi-Matte" screen is about right.
The picture Looked AMAZING though .,.. saw it here and at Best Buy and the one thing I really loved was the viewing angles ... the E-Series viewing angles are HORRIBLE and this M-Series 55" angles we're absolutely perfect in my opinion.
I sure hope the 70" has the same great angles as this 55"
A Bluray was playing and is was a darker animated movie so I couldn't really check for the main things I wanted to see but when I got to Best Buy and looked at there's I could not see anything showing the DSE (dirty screen effect) that the E-series has and I saw some whiteish backgrounds on the looped video playing and couldn't find any kind of banding.
The other thing I didn't want to see was the Ghosting / Halo effect ... There wasn't much playing that would help me see this so not sure about that yet ... seeing a football game or something is a perfect way to see if the players have the halo effect around them as they run etc. but there was nothing playing in the video loop that would show this off to much ... but the basic stuff I did see there was nothing.
I LOVE the way this TV looks and Can't wait to have the 70" in my living room.
Also the bezel around the glass is not 100% flush but there is only a fraction of an inch lip between the bezel and glass .... It looks beautiful to me.
Also the stand is actually very sturdy ... a lot of Vizio's lately have had wobbly unsturdy bases but this one felt fine even sitting on a box it still felt solid, so that should not be an issue at all with this TV.
Has the Best Buy guy try and find anything on the 70" and he said there is nothing in the system yet but they do have a huge M-Series sign in the store that shows the entire line-up so they should be getting all sizes very soon.
Hope the pics and info I have gathered helps.
