Anyone with comments? I'm waiting on a release date for the M701d. Already have a custom home entertainment center built and waiting for it (or something else similar in size that fits the bill).

I can't recall from last year but the 2012 701s just dropped in price very close to Black Friday prices ($1600 vs $1500 for the 70") so it may be soon.

Very excited for the M series. Loving the industrial look, and that super slim bezel. Keeping my eye out for 70" prices to drop under 2K and I'm sold.

My Samsung HL-T5687S has a dying DMD chip and I do not want to fix it only to have a LED go out or something else. I was looking at maybe grabbing a Vizio M3D550KDE from Costco for $850 but now I want to wait for a M551d...

As long as they can fix the blooming and any uniformity issues from the previous M series, then they could very well have a winner here. The 2012 M series with similar LED backlighting (edge lit, local dimming) was noted as one of the best picture quality LCDs.


I expect great things from this set. Hopefully great enough to buy a 70" set. Crossing my fingers that there will be a Black Friday deal for sub $1800ish.

Really looking forward to this series myself. I was excited for last year's E-series, especially the 70 inch. I think waiting was a good decision, though, because prices are just going to be getting lower and lower and those designs are getting to be amaaaaaaaazing. This year's M-series looks stunning with that thin bezel. In terms of picture quality, I really just don't expect much from LCDs. I am focused on size, price and design. I'll be more concerned about picture quality when OLEDs start becoming affordable, which will probably be 5-8 years away for me. In the meantime I'm looking to nab a giant Vizio that looks pretty just sitting on my wall
and has decent enough picture quality (and hopefully not too much BACKLIGHT BLEED!!!!!!!!!!!)

Does anyone know if these will have glossy or semi-glossy screens?

Assuming this information will still be correct at launch, according to the CNET CES piece :

Vizio also mentioned that like all of its 65-inch passive 3D TVs, the 65-inch M651d will have the glass pattern retarder finish, which results in the glossy screen we disliked so much on models like the M3D651SV. The other 3D sizes will have a matte or at least semi-gloss film pattern retarder, like the M3D0KD, while the smaller non-3D sets will be straight matte.

I just bought the 70" E-series and though I like it so far (little uniformity issue in the middle of screen on white-ish action scenes) this new 70" series has got me Mega Excited!!!


70” Razor LED Smart TV w/Theater 3D (M701d) – $2,499.99 Retail Price .... PLEASE GET IN STOCK VIZIO !!!!!


I have until April 28th to return my e-series to Costco ... I am Hoping And Praying Costco has this 70" M-series in the store by then!


Please keep this thread updated on new word from Vizio on when these exactly will be released.

I really hope Vizio posts approximate release months soon. I'm really interested in the new M-series, too, in 65". I'm curious about the PQ difference between the 65" M-series and the 70" E series. If it's substantially better on the 65", I might nab it... otherwise, I'm looking at nabbing the 70" E series soon as I'd like a bigger picture and don't want to spend what other brands ask for 65-70".


The 70" E has already been proven to have a decent picture anyhow.

I have the M3D651SV model (late 2012 model). One feature I like for this model is that it has local dimming (smart dimming). I don't beleive the current e-Series has this feature. Though I've read some reviews of this feature on other brands that don't seem to like it much, I think it helps the blacks in some scenes.
