I'm looking at a 70" TV for my basement. I won't be playing video games on it. Just general TV viewing, sports, and movies.


The Vizio M Series 70". $2100

http://www.costco.com/Vizio-70%22-Class-1080P-240Hz-3D-Smart-LED-HDTV-M701D-A3.product.100049043.html


Complaints about this TV:

- Some people complain about the picture quality, but many seem to be impressed

- Smart TV function, which I really won't use since I have AppleTV

- Remote. Seems like it has been fixed, but a universal remote addresses the issue.


The Sony KDL Series 70". About $1700 at Costco

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-KDL-60R520A-60-Inch-1080p-Internet/dp/B00C1X2D5E/ref=sr_1_6?s=tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1394463734&sr=1-6


Complaints:

- Network connectivity. Again, not using it.

- Some people complain about picture quality when reading the Amazon reviews, but most people are very impressed with the picture.


I had heard that Sony had really taken a step back in the TV business, so I'm not sure if it is worth it or not.

I have had both the M601d and KDL60R550a in the 60" size and I prefer the Vizio. After adjustment they were so close on PQ that it didn't matter. But the uniformity was much better on the Vizio (the Sony had major blob problems and DSE), plus the Vizio has local dimming. And on the 3D side I get zero ghosting on the Vizio, and just a small bit in some scenes on the Sony.
