I have to wonder why the 65" and 75" bezel is thinner than the 60".
The 75" has slightly different design around the logo and its stand is like the F6800's.
I also stopped by Best Buy but to check out the build quality of the Vizio M series. At first glance they look pretty slick but on closer inspection I noticed flaws in the build quality that I would only care about. Comparing the 7 and M series it became evident that the workmanship was much better on the Samsungs. Though I'm still concerned with light bleed issues on the 7 series I'm came away favoring the 7 series. The M series has light bleed issues too but its smart dimming is said to work very well where as the dimming on the F7100 isn't even available for the movie mode.
PiratesCove, you seem to be one of the gurus for this TV, if you don't mind explaining, why is the dimming not available for the movie mode? Though it increases blooming the trade off the way I understand it is better dark detail and less uniformity issues. Are there other settings that help with light bleed and clouding? Cinema Black perhaps? Thanks.
Other than the smart dimming (and of course the lower price points) on the M series I pretty much favor everything else on the Samsung - app design and execution, video processing, available MHL port (I have the option to utilize the Roku streaming stick), the overall physical design and workmanship, weight, available CMS, file support, etc.Edited by venus933 - 7/20/13 at 9:00pm
