What is the current consensus regarding the use of the M437-G0 as a computer monitor? I'll also be using this screen for bedside movies, about 6-8 feet away, so it'll be used in a dark environment.
I purchased a Vizio V436-G1 on Black Friday and lost chroma 4:4:4 subsampling after the first firmware update. I'm concerned I'll run into the same issue with the M-series. I found a workaround for this on the V436-G1 by creating a custom resolution on my PC, but it's fairly frustrating as it doesn't stick when you change video modes (like for games and such), so I'm constantly toggling the correct settings back on in order to maintain crisp, legible text. The V-series screen also has a terrible screen-door like effect anytime I enter HDR mode on the PC. From everything I can gather, this is because the panel is 8-bit and uses dithering of some sort to create additional colors, essentially mimicking a 10-bit display. Does this sound right? If everything else about the M-series was dynamite I could probably live with the chroma issue until Vizio fixes it, if ever.
I'm told the panel on this (43" M-series) is VA (according to displayspecifications.com) and native 10-bit, so there's no dithering or subpixel funkiness going on when displaying HDR (I hope!)
Can anyone confirm whether this is a good candidate for my uses described above? Curious how ya'll's experience with this screen has been and if there were any glaring problems or issues with it. It sure seems like a lot of TV for the price, given that the closest in terms of quality that I can tell, is Samsung's Q60R, which AFAICT is about two bills more expensive. Any help/input/suggestions (even on other brands/models) would be GREATLY appreciated!
