My budget is $1,000 to $2,000 for this purchase. I would like to get as much bleeding edge tech as I can (HDR10, Dolby Vision,etc.).

If I read what you are saying then, if I find the 7-10 YO fluorescent Sharp Aquos acceptable brightness wise, any new TV including the Vizio M & P series should be at least as bright.

M-series M65-D0 64 zones of dimming, no wide color gamut, one HDMI 2.0, 4 HDMI 1.4 ports, 720p tablet with 8GB memory as a remote ~ $1,249 delivered.

or

P-series P65-C1 128 zones of dimming wide color gamut, four HDMI 2.0, one HDMI 1.4 ports, 1080p tablet with 16GB memory as a remote ~$1,899 delivered.
From what you said in your original post the P-Series is your TV. Get it and be happy. I myself would get a less expensive TV now and upgrade in a few years ones HDR stuff is all over the place and after getting a UHD Bluray player.

Re: Monitor/TV for bright-ish family room

Todd, This TV will be for daily watching. Mainly TV shows, and Football games on the weekends.

I have never had the opportunity to work with Robert before, and I was asking for advice. However he does not indicate any specific issues with Vizio, only that the LG models that he sells are great. He did not provide any specific reasons why the LG is better.

Being metaphorically from Missouri, it is hard for me to believe an edge lit TV simulating a backlit screen can compete with a true 128 zone backlit display.

At this point LG has one of the best displays on the market in their OLED line of displays. That is not in my budget. I also think that the Mercedes S550 Coupe is great to, but I am not sure a C300 competes favorably with cars in its price class (which I might afford).

After discussing it with my wife, we have decided that the P65-C1 looks like a display that we can live with for the next 5 -10 years (Lord willing and the creek don't rise). The price of that display is $1,899-$1,999.

I am still interested in recommendations for a 65" display 4K, HDR10 & Dolby Vision that competes favorably with the P65-C1. But I would like some specific reason why it is as good as or better than the VIZIO.

If, after I make my final decision, one of HTS vendors sells the display I choose, and prices are close, I will certainly buy from them.

Re: Monitor/TV for bright-ish family room

Completely understand.

A buddy of mine picked up a 65-in P series TV. For the money, it's not a bad set. His, much to my chagrin, is not calibrated. And the first time I watched a game on it he had frame interpolation dialed to the max. The room the TV resides in is loaded with Windows.

Off axis isn't terrible, but (like most LCD, it does effect blacks and color.

If memory serves me correct, David K. at CNET gives the Vizio P and M series TVs high marks.

One thing to consider is that we are getting late in the year... That means we'll start to get info about new models as we approach CES... And eventual price drops as the new models rollout.

I'm guessing you're looking for a new set to enjoy the upcoming football season?

Re: Monitor/TV for bright-ish family room

Actually it is my wife that likes football, I'll watch it, but I'm not a big fan. Id' rather be doing something on the computer, or putzing around in the garage when it isn't too hot.

I guess I just have the upgrade itch, finances are OK, technologically we skipped over LED and 3D, 4K has been out for a little while, and prices have come down. HDR looks promising, and I see this as testing the water for replacing the 58" Plasma in the living room where we watch movies. If/when the prices of OLED come down we may get one of those. We'll move the Aquos into my Mother-in-law's area replacing a 37" 720p so the TV won't hit the dump. One of the guys I work with wants the 37" TV, so it seems to work out.

I think you'll be happy if you take the time to set it up correctly. Expectations are everything, and as long as you know the set will have some limitations, you'll be content!
