2020/2021 Vizio M-Series Quantum Thread (price talk not allowed)

Welcome to the 2020/2021 Vizio M-Series Quantum thread, where you can have various discussions, conversations, and questions about this particular TV. Like last year, the 2020/2021 M-Series Quantum will also be split into two versions. The slightly more affordable MQ7 and the slightly more expensive MQ8. MQ7 will be available in inch sizes 50, 55, and 65 while the MQ8 will only be available in 55 and 65 inch sizes. Key differences between the two:
MQ7 will have 600 nits of brightness and 30 dimming zones (55 and 65 inch models only, the 50 inch model has 400 nits of brightness and 16 dimming zones) and the MQ8 version will have 800 nits of brightness and 90 dimming zones.

The rest of the features & specs apply to both versions. Here's what to expect from the 2020/2021 M-Series Quantum:
-HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision HDR support
-HDMI 2.1 at full 48gbps bandwidth (unknown how many HDMI 2.1 ports it'll have)
-IQ Active Processor
-Vizio ProGaming Engine (Gives you the most immersive gaming experience yet, here it also supports both ALLM and VRR/Freesync, so you're good to go once PS5 and Xbox Series X get released)
-SmartCast 4.0
-A brand new voice remote control
-Native 60hz panel (therefore don't expect 120fps support here because of it)
-Atmos/TrueHD and DTS:X/HD-MA support via eARC

Fully announced on June 30th, 2020, and should be available for purchase at least sometime this July. One more thing to know about this TV is that the slightly better MQ8 version will be sold exclusively through Amazon whereas the slightly worse MQ7 version will be available in just about every retailer including Amazon.

TRIVIA: While mostly a 2020 model, Vizio is now calling their new lineup 2021 collection. What this means is that once their new TVs and soundbars get released, they'll not only be 2020 models, but will also carry well over unto 2021. If true, don't expect Vizio to renew their lineup until 2022.
The Quantum Dot Color technology used in this TV (as well as the P-series Quantum and P-series Quantum X) is just like the technology on Samsung QLED TVs, but with a even stronger overall wide color gamut.
HDR10+ first made its debut on Vizio as a firmware update feature for the 2018 P-series and all 2019 models expect the V-series, on the 2019 M-series Quantum, it was only offered on 55 and 65 inch sizes both M7 & M8 versions, 43 and 50 inch sizes were excluded for some reason. This year it'll be available out of the box for the entire Vizio TV lineup.

The TV sounds pretty exciting. I'm hoping the 2020/21 quantum x is even better. I would like to replace my q8fn with a more capable TV for gaming. Hopefully the tvs vrr is compatible with nvidia gsync. I would love to be able to connect my rtx 2080ti with a non oled 75" display that is compatible with gsync. Here's hoping these tvs are compatible.

@Viscious82 Only one way to find out once released. For sure Freesync support will be there, Gsync will probably less likely to be supported on Vizio TVs, but we shall see.

Plus = only one model of M series so not to confuse people about two different performing models with the same moniker. That seemed really cheesy to me.
New processors and algorithms so scaling, FALD control, gradients etc may finally be competitive to go along with the great contrast and zone count.
Minus = M series still 60hz.

@js950 So they may or may not split the M-Series Quantum into two versions this time, is that right?
The native refresh rate is correct though, 120hz panel is reserved for OLED, P-Series Quantum, and P-Series Quantum X.

Last year, they had specs for both versions on site. Not this year but that is certainly no guarantee.

I hope it works with hdmi 2.1 tvs. The new quantum x looks really attractive from the features stand point.

Only 8 more days to go! I sure hope Vizio keeps their promise.

Tomorrow is the big day! I wonder if they will just announce release date or actually go on sale?

@Zooiez123 I hope so that they actually get released to retailers and be available for purchase, that would be perfect. But we shall we what happens tomorrow!

@ghonk I figured they'll do that. With the aforementioned differences being that the M7 will be available in more sizes from 50 to 70 while M8 only in 55 and 65 inches, and also M7 claims 600 nits of brightness and 30 dimming zones while M8 claims 800 nits and 90 dimming zones.

@Zoland2020

Someone posted over on Reddit that their local Costco had the 2021 V-Series in stock. I called my Costco and confirmed the same model (V-655-H19) is available at mine for the same price ($459.99). Unfortunately they didn't have any of the new P-Series in stock.

So it looks like we'll see an actual "launch" tomorrow for at least some models! I just hope that extends beyond the V-Series and we see higher end sets available as well!

(I'm a new user so I'm unable to post URLs: if you want to see the Reddit post, just google to find the VIZIO_Official subreddit, and you'll see the post there.)

https://www.vizio.com/en/tv/p-series They intentionally cutoff the screen right before the sizes everyone cares about. There is no scroll bar at the bottom.

@mpgxsvcd I was just about to mention it here, lol.

Anyways, today is the day for Vizio as all of their TVs and soundbars are now live with their own pages. Not available to purchase just yet though. See for yourself: https://www.vizio.com/en/tv/m-series

Apparently the 2021 M8 (or "MQ8") is an Amazon exclusive, but I can't find it there yet.

In fact none of the 2020/2021 Vizio TVs are live yet on Amazon nor the soundbars.

Curious if anyone who ends up purchasing the 50" model can confirm whether it has a staggered sub pixel layout or not by plugging a PC or laptop into it? See below thread on what a staggered sub pixel layout is and why it's bad:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-l...el-matrix.html


Unfortunately in last year's 2019 M Quantum models, the 50" size did have the unfortunate staggered subpixel layout and looked absolutely horrible when used with a PC, however the 43" did not. Unfortunately since they don't offer a 43" anymore, I'm hoping the 50" has an improvement in this area!

I have the new M7 50" model. I plugged in my macbook and made a few solid color boxes in a document and took some pictures. I'm not exactly sure how to interpret these so I'll let you be the judge. Overall the image looked pretty good off my macbook.

That said, I am not terribly happy with the picture quality of broadcast material (1080i and 720p) which this TV will be used for 50% of the time. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to pay the extra $ to exchange it for the X950h.
