I'm in the same boat too, so I'll be following this thread closely for suggestions.
As of now, it comes down to the TCL C-Series or the Vizio M for me. The Vizio P65 is nice and all, but a bit out of our budget since I wanted to stick around $1K and didn't want to get a refurb.
Leaning towards the TLC C-series at the moment since it hits a lot of my requirements: 1) price around $1K, 2) future proof (HDR+DV a must, FALD nice to have but not a dealbreaker), and 3) size at 65". It supposedly even looks nice too, design-wise. Once rtngs releases their review on that, I'll make a decision.
Just too bad because a TCL P65 would've been perfect...
