I'm disgusted, disappointed, etc., etc. Gonna make a trip to BB in the morning.
It looks like at some point it was transported flat instead of upright. Fairly unlikely it was boxed like this.
Also, a comment about the Color Space setting. A lot of people are setting it (BT.709, Rec.2020, etc.) In theory, "Auto" causes the TV to read the color space from the video source. You would only need to change it manually if your source isn't passing proper information. Manually setting this may end up forcing video into a color space it shouldn't be using skewing the colors.
Once size doesn't fit all. DVDs and SD sources (including SD bonus features on a BD) are usually BT.601. HD does NOT have to be BT.709 either (but it should). Setting Rec.2020 for anything but UHD mixed for it will convert your colors in a way that's not as good as using the 'Live Color' setting.
- Turn off any Sony noise reduction and deblocking, set your Sharpness to 50 (which is neutral) and many people like the Reality Creation set low to something like 20 (which brings up fine detail).
I've never found 4k Vizio to have better black levels or detail than the X850C especially not for HD and UHD sources.

Yes, this is two IR blasters. There is a setup for it on the Recommendation/top line of your menu. You can set them up to control cable/satellite boxes or AV Receivers that don't use ARC.
For most of the options, VirtualRain has written the near-definitive guide: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-lc...l#post37248098
