Can't say I regret buying it, but find it quite useless for dark viewing. I also don't really watch it much anymore (used by family mostly, who don't care). I only use it to watch HDR content, since my M55-C2 doesn't support HDR. With the M60-D1, HDR content most definitely requires some bias lighting, otherwise everything dark-black is just grey, and FALD doesn't save it. The limited native contrast can also be felt in dark scenes in SDR too, where the lack of details and grey wash out can be somewhat annoying.
I much prefer my 2015 M55.
If you need a TV with good FALD for a bright room, with good quality, wide viewing angle and HDR10+DV support, $500 for the M60-D1 is a steal.
But if you prefer to watch in a dark or dimly lit room, and a narrow viewing angle isn't a problem, the M65 will be superior in every way.
The M60-D1 has a 120Hz panel, 5 HDMI ports, 64 zones, etc. just like the bigger models, but the IPS panel lets it down.
My display also has a pink-ish blob on much of the left side of the screen, it's visible when looking at snow or foamy waves, it can drive me nuts sometimes.
