Just some very quick initial impressions:
The tablet remote is very nice, good feel in the hand, nice build quality, clear screen. My roommate commented he wanted to buy a set just for the tablet it was so nice. The wireless cradle is also great. Nice to be able to adjust settings quickly and without the GUI covering the screen. Just wish it had an IR a blaster on it...it would be great for using Android universal remote apps like Sure which I use on my phone...at least the Vizio Smartcast app can be put on your Android phone...but it would be nice to always use the tablet remote for everything.
The set seems very bright and colorful. It was fairly well color calibrated out of the box, which is a nice change from Vizios I've had in the past (like the 2014 P series) which looked very yellow, and which I could never get perfect.
I did have a bit of blooming, more than I expected. Again I haven't set everything up or gone through many options yet, but there was some weird blooming coming up from the bottom edge on the Fox logo, and the "No Signal" graphic seems to show off some horizontal bloom. I was surprised that on a black screen with a logo in the center (specifically the loading screen of The Divison on PS4) the rest of the screen never achieved full black. The screen/bezel border was clearly visible, and even a light clouding...very light...nothing like my Samsung. Still after seeing the Sony 940c I was surprised the screen didn't just blend into the bezel.
This was watching in complete darkness, with the backlight at the default 60. Again tweaks will need to be made..hopefully I can tone this down...maybe share some settings with those on here.
Game mode with Low Latency seems very quick...no issues so far with input lag.
Love the screen saver...lots of great nature photos with a clock.
Netflix looked good...Daredevil suffered from none of the lighting issues that plagued my Samsung...but those were directly related to edge lighting so I wouldn't expect those here. Did observe some motion blur/smearing that was keeping the detail out of moving objects...people's faces in particular...I've had this before on an old Vizio..hopefully it can be tweaked out.
That's it so far...I'm liking the build quality of the set and the remote...both feel substantial..still need to spend a night or two with some good source material and do some tweaking...hopefully I can fine tune out any issues I'm seeing and can do a direct head to head with the 8550...if all goes well I hope I can move on from the Samsung...other than the 940C/D there aren't many other OLED quality alternatives in the 75" market. I'd be happy to answer and questions you guys have tomorrow...although I won't be able to mess with it more until after work..I've already been up too late as it is messing around with it.
