Anybody know if this TV will send high bit rate audio to a receiver through ARC? Last I checked there were some ATMOS titles that were being streamed through VUDU.

If you have the money, X900. TVs aren't even in the same class.

Just checking to see if the bigger TCL outweighs the better picture of the smaller Sony.

By the time I get ready to buy, I'm thinking the Sony will be $1500-$1600 and the TCL will be about $1900-$2000

Right now Costco has the 75" M series for $1,999. Kind of makes this a hard bargain even at $2k, but it does compete in some categories.
https://m.costco.com/Vizio-75%22-Cla...100375141.html

Admittedly 32 zone FALD at 75" will not work especially well, it still should be at least be better than no local dimming at all on the edge lit C series. From what I'm seeing o nrtings.com side by side comparison:

- Both 60hz panels
- Both have similar great native contrast (over 5000:1)
- Both support HDR10 and Dolby Vision
- M series gets significantly brighter in HDR content
- M Series has much better viewing angle for black level and black uniformity
- C series upscales 480p/720p content better, all Vizios struggle here
- C series has a notably wider color gamut, both have a WCG though
- C series has among the best input lag in the business, M series is mediocre by comparison
- Roku interface on C series > Smartcast on M series


Definitely some gives and takes. Still think M series has the edge with the 32 zone FALD, but the C series makes some compelling arguments.

Great comparison. What about audio, would the 75" C Series' 4 front-facing speaker aray sound better?

And of course the edge-lit design affords a sleeker profile (at least on the top half), if that matters to you...

I would hope nobody dropping 2 grand on a 75" tv would use the internal speakers.

This looks like it could be my next family room TV. We have an old Sharp LCD with more a matte screen in our fairly bright room so any comments on the glare/reflection on the C-series?

I replaced my sharp aquus lc52e77un with the 65C607. With the Sharp I had to make family turn off kitchen lights and I had to pull all blinds to even try to watch movies with dark scenes. With this one I prefer the lights off but the reflection is much less so I find I don’t run to put family in the dark as often. Also, I often watch bright movies on the TCL even during day with the blinds open (I don’t have direct sunlight though). Hope that helps.

I hear you, but Mark on the AVS article also said:

"And here’s the gig, you don’t need to add an inexpensive soundbar to get adequate audio out of it. It comes with integrated forward facing speakers placed at the bottom of the set. It’s like it comes with its own flush-mounted 2.0 soundbar with 15 watts per channel of power."

I have some family member households who are only concerned with the screen size and Roku ease of use, not really an AVR sound system.

Let's keep a watch on sales sightings this month then (crosses fingers)

TCL 75" C-Series (Model# 75C807) 4K Roku TV with Dolby Vision HDR

Well I ordered the 75C807 on Nov 22 direct from Amazon. At the time they didn't even have an ETA, though a 3rd party Amazon seller (Beach Camera) listed Dec 20-23. But since the start of this month, Amazon direct has been advertising "Usually ships within 1 to 3 weeks" for new orders. Unfortunately they could only offer Dec 29 as the earliest scheduled delivery date for my original order, for some reason...

I've had experience with the 65" and 55" of the C series, but would also like to see the 75" reviews about the newly added motion processing, quad-speaker front array, and any PQ differences?

I'm also nervous about how safe the freight delivery will be for a TV this size and weight? I've had good freight experience with smaller TV's (from Electronic Express and Amazon), but also had a toilet order broken in pieces two times in a row (that seller had to switch to a different freight carrier for the 3rd replacement shipment). Hope there'll be 2 guys carrying it at least.

Edit: Forgot that I also had good experience with Costco's "white glove" delivery of an 86" TV...

I guess I'll cancel the Amazon order.

Just ordered mine Through Costco

I can't wait. I really liked the way the 55 C series looked in my bedroom and decided to go for broke with this 75 beast. It is replacing a TH-58PZ800U Panny which has served me faithfully for many a year.

But I was starting to get the itch to go bigger, lose the dreaded bezel and basically upgrade to 4K HDR. I have seen this one in Costco and as I looked between this one and the Samsung/Vizios in the same price range I sincerely decided this was a no brainer, especially with the latest price drop. The image quality was not QLED or OLED for sure, but damn if it didn't look as good as the Vizio M series, at least to these eyes.

Now my big problem, I have a stand that I love, but this behemoth's stand footprint will not fit. Anyone have a recommendation for a Universal stand that will fit the 600x300 Vesa spec? Oh the other problem... Now I have to wait until it arrives!

It's funny, my father-in-law just bought a 65" TV for his living room. I already got him a TCL Roku TV for another room, and I think he would've stayed with the brand, except that he wanted to keep his existing cabinet stand in the living room which is too small for the TCL's widespread feet. So he went for a curved Samsung model with a center-mount foot (the only one he could find).

I should've found him a replacement VESA stand that will fit on the cabinet dimensions.
