Holy Toledo!!!!! I had no idea games were using Dolby Vision as well. This is completely contrary to what I was told. In fact I had this conversation with a gentleman here who specifically stated that since I'm using the set exclusively for gaming, I don't need Dolby Vision.
I just checked - you're right!! I'm so glad for your response. Thank you. I'm afraid 900E is out. Definitely going to need a set with Dolby Vision.

So, I should back track just a tad. I think "abandoned" wasn't the right term. I'm not dead set on "not" buying TCL. But to answer your question - I don't think it's any one thing - I think it's mainly the thread running here where people who are receiving the set are sharing their experiences. Real world experiences, not tech reviews. I'm not seeing the wow factor. I'm not seeing anybody really impressed. I think it's coming in sub-par then what it was touted to be. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting the performance of the set to match other, higher priced sets. But it seems to be struggling to meet expectations.
I'm not overly concerned about the damaged boxes or broken sets; that's easily & quickly replaceable. But more so performance, banding issues, lag, etc. It's just not jumping out the way I thought it was going to when people finally got their hands on it.
Even people who ordered it & received it, I'm seeing half of them running towards X900E, and the others towards Vizio.
Having said that, and after DJ Lushious' post, Sony X900E is out for me. So at this point I'm down to TCL 55R617 or Vizio P55-F1. I don't mind waiting till June 1 (or whatever the actual release date) and the price difference isn't all that significant. I just want the better set for my Gaming setup.
I'd like to see P55-F1 in people's hands, some experiences, real world reviews from owners. That will ultimately make the decision.
Now, a Question: While all of the other specs seem to be an almost identical match, the one mismatched spec which stands out is the Local Dimming Zones. TCL seems to have considerably more then Vizio. I believe 72 vs 36 on the 55". I'm not a highly technical pro in this regards - I understand the basics of Local Dimming Zones - so this being the case, how is Vizio expected to match or outperform TCL in HDR/Dolby Vision/4K?
