I do like the 4K upscale, however it looks a little white washed.
Football looked good, however some jitter... but you do not see every piece of grass like plasma. But that's ok...
I kinda feel bad I ordered the Sony now... are the blacks that bad?
Let me ask you if you know..... the jitter control on the vizio... if you put it down to 0 or higher the number,,, which way decreases the jitter, and if I decrease the jitter... what do I sacrifice
I briefly had a Vizio P60 which is the same or better than the 2015 M... and I'm sorry but the Sony blows it away. Sony's black levels are inky (clouding/flashlighting may vary by TV, but that's not the same as black levels), the picture is vibrant and poor quality sources are handled better. Heck, don't the Vizios have a problem with red levels (thanks to the Sharp panels) and need aggressive calibration?
The Vizio has few features beyond 'show video on screen'. The apps list is a joke and you can't sideload, DTS playback was disabled in a firmware update, no subtitles support, etc. etc. It's bare bones.
The Vizio is good if you're on a strict budget and just need a monitor, but we've got a 75" and it's so good we dumped the P60 for another 850c in 55". It's 5" less but you really can't compare the two for quality and features (especially if you take advantage of stuff like reality creation and color gamut enhancement). Don't forget 3D & HDR support.
And, yeah, we pretty much only watch movies and TV. I'm a convert. YMMV.
