If you're talking pure value, no, the $3500 75" x900F isn't really "worth" $1500 more than the $2000 75" P-series. But, it is a better set, and will likely have less issues than Vizios sometimes tend to have. Vizio is a value oriented brand, so that's how they compete - offer higher end features for a lower price than competitors, although, they definitely have to cut some corners to get there. You have to decide if you're willing to live with those cut corners or not. Sony isn't trying to be a "value" option for the x900F really, it's a mid-higher end set with very few compromises. When you get towards the higher end, the value factor tends to go out the window. The P series is trying to lure people in with the higher end features for a budget price by comparison.
Vizio's cut corners tend to be:
- Not as good color (vs. higher end sets)
- Worst upscaler among the brands, but not horrifically bad or anything, it's just not Sony/Samsung/LG level
- Reliability/quality, any tv can have issues, but Vizio seems to have really gone down in this department in recent years with their issues they've been having, and specifically with P series sets (random shut downs, lines on tv, etc...)
If you're willing to potentially live with the above, then the P series is a great option, if you think getter better color, upscaler, potential reliability, etc...is worth $1500 more to you, then the x900F is the way to go
