- one less USB port than M70-D3 (only one on M70-E3)
- one less HDMI than M70-D3 (only 4 on M70-E3)
- more power consumption than M70-D3
- no tablet remote on M70-E3, but includes XRT135, which I already received for my M70-D3
I put this request on hold. Can you guys help me out technically if I should go for M70-E3 or still request M70-D3?
Thanks in advance
M2016 vs M2017:
64 led zones vs 32 led zones
No WCG vs WCG (same as P series)
2017M series gets much brighter in HDR highlights.
2017M series has a 60Hz panel in all sizes, 2016M has a 60Hz panel in 50" and 55" sizes. That said, all M series are capable of no-judder playback of 24P sources, but not of [email protected]
, I don't consider it a major disadvantage, unless you need 120Hz for gaming at 1080P.
2017M series doesn't have HDMI 5, low latency port in all sizes, 2016M in 50" and 55" sizes. So lowest input lag is ~38ms on the 2017M series, according to rtings.
2017M doesn't come with a tablet, you could request Vizio only replace the display and leave the tablet?
All in all the 2017 M is a considerably better HDR display. The 2016 M may
be better for SDR and for non-HDR gaming.
