The new Vizio appears to be an option for budget conscious movie watchers or gamers, but I would not put it in the same class as flagship TVs from the big 3, regardless of rtings ridiculous 8.6 overall score. It is still saddled with a poor OS and app support, subpar build quality, upscaling, and gradient, a budget remote with no voice support, and 1 USB 2.0 port. These features are not important to some people, but, taken as a whole, they are deal breakers for me. The Z9D easily bests it overall IMHO, let alone the Z9F. Just my opinion.
