On the topic of the 16 and 17 M series:
I briefly had the 16 and traded across for the 17 since it was the same price. Mind you they both were the 55" option. I honestly can't notice a huge difference between the two sets post "calibration". If anything the E0 is definitely a bit brighter and and more crisp than the D0. The biggest difference in hardware is all the 17 Ms are 60hz VA panels on all sizes. With the older larger models you do get a bump in hz and the extra HDMI port w/low latency (which I am currently missing and may suffer from if I switch to PC). I believe it has the larger bit panel (10?) and, hardware wise, is more streamlined for the future.
Overall the differences I find are minimal and anyone will be happy with either set. But I notice a brighter more defined image with the E0 when watching UHD/HDR content.
EDIT: I wouldn't mind giving that new TCL set a try. Supposedly it's supposed to create some waves due to price and the image being 🔥🔥🔥
