2016 Vizio 4K UHD HDR M Series Anticipation Thread "Coming Soon"

http://www.vizio.com/m-series

Looks like it will feature HDR just like the P series and come with the tablet remote. It will have 64 active LED zones doubling up last years M series. It also mentions a high velocity mode for gaming.

No pricing info yet.

Looks like the M series will lack the expanded colors space.

No reason at all to choose the M over the P. Spend the few extra pennies and get double zones and WCG.

What are the odds that they can update the p series to do HDR, if this new m series can do it with the same zones and no expanded color? Prob a brighter panel or some other issue...Ha, I'm sure they just want me to buy a whole new set, but I can dream!
😀
Vizio going full 4K with P,M and E is amazing news....just saw a r series on the wall at Best Buy, a return....as nice as it was, I personally didn't think it was worth the money, but in no way did it look bad right next to a js9500. The speaker under it is not for me though...

Wonder when the say prices for the m line? If I can get the 65 for $1500, it might be worth it to me...Also just thinking, if Vizio sells a ton, and they all do Dolby vision, what does that mean for Sony and Samsung people, can it be added to hdr10 if it become the dominate format(or is hdr10 mandatory on uhd Blu?)? What player can do DV?Can the phillips? I really wish they had it all figured out back in 2013, but oh well...

wasn't the P series just announced with HDR... AND an expanded dci/p3 color gamut.... AND it is FALD.... what MORE else can you ask for than that especially at the price range they are offering

Honestly the chances are basically 0, they can't add Dolby Vision to a product after its been created and Vizio is all in on DV. And even if they could add HDR10 only, I highly doubt they would.

The major reason I'm thinking of the M Series over the P Series is because I'm interested in a 70'' set, and the price point of a 70'' on the M series should be a sweet spot between quality and scale. I'm upgrading from a D-Nice calibrated 55'' VT30 so it should be a huge step up. Hoping reviews for the P/M series are on point, although living without 3D will be annoying. I'm no champion of the format, but it kinda bumbs me out knowing I couldn't enjoy Gravity or Hugo in 3D, both of which are titles I own.

Coming from a high end plasma you're going to want the expanded color space, which the M series doesn't have. Gotta go P!

The tv actually streams the content from the internet as the 'chromecast' device is built into the tv, not from the tablet, so there shouldn't be any lag. The tablet is basically a remote to the device in the tv.

Do we have the new M series specs yet? Also, in your opinion would you recommend a 65'' P Series over a 70'' M Series set? Thanks!

Yes, the 1st post in this thread has tv specs, but no hard numbers.

The vizio P series has double the zones and better colors. Personally, I'd take the 65" Vizio P over the 70" M.

Casting is not screen mirroring.

There are already two threads running concerning the Vizio 2016 P-Series, do we really need another thread on the same subject matter ?

Consolidation time guys, for some of us time is too precious to waste to go through yet another thread on the same subject matter...

This is the M series.....a totally different TV.


Did you whine that there was a E, M & P series thread last year too?

I hope the M series offers a 55" or 60" with VA panel. Shame the P series had to have IPS on the 55", and no 60" offering ... 65" might be a bit too large for my space

I am in the same boat. Could buy the 50" p series, but it's only a 60Hz panel. The 55" p is what I wanted and that is an IPS panel and the 65" is really too large and too expensive. I could fit a 60" but it would be close. So I'm hoping the new m series has a 55" set with a VA panel that is 120HZ. I guess I would also consider a similar 60" set.
