Unfortunately I'm down in Fife, but would love to know if the South Center BB has the 65" to look at. I was impressed with the 55" I saw in Federal Way last night. Might got back and take a second look at it before I ask the wife to swing by.

I'm still a little tempted to return the Vizio and buy the 65EF9500 off amazon, which would be cheaper after cashing in my amazon credit... hmm..
Unfortunately two of the stores that had them side by side weren't up and running properly. So it won't help reassuring the average person that Vizio is a reliable and equal value television. Especially when the associates have it in their selling vernacular to tell customers, "Vizio is our most returned television."
This was what I was trying to explain earlier. As a former retail manager and merchandiser having a defective product on display isn't good form, no matter which company. The Sony that I was looking at wasn't working 30 minutes after the doors opened. These are things that should be handled before then to insure that everything is up and running. As Vader pointed out earlier, everyone's experience will always be different, but it is the consistency that frustrates me. Anyway, I digress. Back to talking about the P Series

Seems I am getting a lot of mixed opinions. I can't help but agree with both.
At this point I am more of the mindset to just buy a 50 inch P Series and if I want something bigger later this year buy a 65 inch 4K.
I have sat close to the tv for a minute now on an ottoman while gaming I figure if it's that big of a difference in contrast and picture quality I can do that. As for watching tv shows I watch most of my stuff on my iPad Pro anyways
There's a chart somewhere that shows optimal viewing distance for TV sizes, and whether or not 4k is worth it at those distances. Personally, if I'm in the market for a new TV, I'm tossing that chart aside and asking myself if I'm investing in the future or the present, without regards to my current viewing distance (people move, buy new furniture, re-arrange their living rooms, etc). Buying a 1080p TV that suits your needs right now
when 4k/HDR is the future is not a good investment, especially if you plan to keep the TV for a while (my current main TV, I've had for 10 years). You'll save money today, but in a couple of years you'll likely wish you'd spent a little more for the 4k set.
Just my two cents.
I think that jrstinkfish (and jopat) has pretty much given you some solid advice, as have some of the others here. Trust me, I know what you are feeling. I've read the entire thread and it can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to the information. I'm also in the market for a new television and was initially looking at last years M Series, specifically the M70-C-3 and M75-C-1. I have a 19' room and about the same viewing space, if not greater, than you. So my advice would be always go bigger and get the P65. Worse case scenario, it is too much and you exchange it for a smaller size. Regardless, you'll have something that at least is a step in the right direction. If budget or not seeing the benefits of upgrading to a HDR ready television are a factor than I'd suggest tracking down a 60-65" 2015 M Series. Right now Vizio has the M60-C3
for a $1000 and free shipping, but something to consider is for another $1000 you could get the new P65
