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)
-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.
One nation, under God. Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
