Both are currently "on sale" and have VA panels, with the Vizio having low-end FALD and the Sony being edge-lit with no dimming at all. The Sony has better motion control and upscaling though.
FWIW, apparently the Vizio's upscaling has improved considerably with the latest firmware.
My humble main system:
Vizio M75-E1; Oppo 203 universal UHD player; Denon 4300H AVR, Dual PSA S1801's; Monitor Audio Silver RX-6 mains, RX center, and RX surrounds; one pair NHT mini Atmos speakers; Home-built HTPC (Xeon E1230, 16gb RAM, Crucial M500 480gb SSD, GeForce 980Ti, Corsair CX600, CoolerMaster mini-ITX case); Roku Premiere+; Amazon 4K Fire TV
