I too feel completely bamboozled about this. I'm also beyond surprised that more people aren't up in arms on this board. To me, the lack of reaction means one or more of the following:
1. People have LOTS of disposable income, so they just don't care.
2. People who bought a 2015 M series are ignoring the fact they just took it on the chin.
3. Maybe, just maybe, some of the posters on this board are shill reviewers who hyped up the M series to the detriment of those of us who fell for their rhetoric.
I mean, seriously, almost 14000 glowing reviews and compliments about the M series, influencing many of us to buy a TV. Then suddenly oops, sucks for you if you bought a 2015 M series. You should have known to buy a TV with HDR and WCG, dummy.
But hey, just plunk down another $1800-3500 and we promise you'll have a great TV this time. (wink wink)
Little late to the party here, been busy with the audio side of things lately.
Getting bent out of shape about technology advancing is wasted energy, it's part of the risk involved with buying new gear. There's always something better next year. Something that's more refined, or has more advancements over the previous generation.
Now I know your coming from a plasma, and LCD's are kind of a step back for you, but for anyone who has had an older LCD, the M series is a good TV, and will be a good TV for a long time. I think it has a good reputation because of the features and picture quality at it's price point. We have a number of different LCD's in the house, direct lit, edge lit, and the M60 with FALD, it's hands down the best picture in the house. Yeah, it's not the long hauler I thought it was going to be, but I got a good TV at a good price. I think a lot of people on here would agree with that statement.
