I have not had the chance to see either the Vizio M801D nor the Sharp 857U in person. I can't find it now, but I swear I read somewhere that the Vizio has a flat / matte screen while the Sharps are glossy. Is this right? I've had issues using a shiny screen as a pc display. I'm planning on putting one of these into a fairly bright conference room mostly for as a PC display, and not much video.


Any suggestions?

Thanks!

The Vizio has a Simi glossed screen in bright lit areas it will have a reflection on the screen. I'm not sure about the sharp though.

Vizio reflective boss

Ok Rockman so you own the Vizio 80"? I thought you have a Sharp?

Based on the size of the screen vs. the size of the receiver, I suspect that is a picture of the (known to be) highly reflective 65 inch M series, not the less reflective 80. Rockman seems to bash sets other than the Sharp (which has both positive and negative qualities of its own).

So incorrect I praise and bash a lot of things that's a 80 when they first hit the market not. 65 nice try. Yes I have two sharp 80s but friends with vizio. I'm not a huge fan of edge lit tech

You have that mixed up, buy the Semi-matte Sharp, it will do much better in that environment.
