Vizio M70-C3

 

Vizio's new M-Series of HDTVs shows you can get a big 4K screen with a very good picture without spending a whole lot of money.

Excellent contrast. Accurate color. Inexpensive compared with similar-sized 4K HDTVs.

Menus occasionally looks a bit fuzzy. Yahoo-based app ecosystem feels clunky.

Vizio's M-Series stands as one of the best values you can find in big-screen 4K HDTVs. They perform very well, and the price ($1,500 for the 65-inch model we tested) can't be beat. If you don't need a big screen, the smaller Sharp UB30 series is even...

VIZIO M70-C3

 

Vizio is the current godfather of high-value TVs, and the 2015 M series is the poster child. It's priced hundreds less than any of the 4K offerings from Samsung and Sony, and performs better than most. The secret to that picture has nothing to do with...

The Vizio M series is one of the least-expensive 4K TVs you can buy. Its picture quality, thanks to full-array local dimming, delivers deep black levels and excellent contrast for an LCD TV. Color accuracy and some aspects of video processing are...

Competing 4K TVs offer better video processing and more accurate color prior to picture-setting calibration. Only one HDMI input is compatible both HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. The silver finish doesn't blend in as well as black would.

The Vizio M series sits at this year's sweet spot of price and picture, and just happens to be 4K too.

visio M43-C1 WIFI problems

 

this is primarily used as a HTPC setup for gaming and media and does very well. This tv can display 1080p at 120hz @ 32bit, 8bpc & YCbCr444 limited or 2160p at 60hz @ 32bit, 8bpc & YCbCr422 limited

good price, good picture,1080p 120hz or 2060p 60hz 4k gaming!

Tv qwerty remote no longer works with youtube - it use to. I contacted Vizio whom said that it was a problem with youtube updating their software. Well to me sounds like Visio needs to update their firmware!!! YouTube is really the only app the...

Korean 4K monitors are a better choice for PC gamers.

 

All said and done, this is a great TV if you are subscribed to HD cable. Unfortunately, most of my channels are still at 480i which look horrible. This unit is fine for gaming if your not sensitive to a little ghosting. Response time is somewhere...

- Great upscaling for 720 and 1080 content. - 120Hz at 1080 for gaming. - Colors are good out of the box, but not perfect. - Plenty of options in menu for color calibration. - Decent speakers for TV and gaming. - Supports RGB, Chroma 4:4:4, & Chroma...

- Using direct cable hook up, 480 content looks horrible. - 4K 60Hz is only supported in Chroma 4:2:2. - Limited refresh rates and color formats. - No option to disconnect wireless connectivity in menu. - Chroma 4:4:4 does not pass the 4:4:4 test...

Very Smart Visio TV

 

NewEgg price was best on the internet. Showed up in two days.

Bright with good colors, easy to set-up, great picture, and an awesome remote - full keyboard on backside! Built-in 1-button to hotkey: iHeart radio, Netflix,and AmazonVideo.

None so far.

great picture and price

 

There are fancier TVs out there but I think this is the best for the price and shipping. I called the shipper the day before delivery and asked them to call me before arrival so I would make sure I was at my home, but they never did. Instead the driver...

Great picture, easy to use remote, setup was easy and I didn't need to adjust anything for picture quality

TV stand legs are very wide-make sure you have an appropriately sized platform to put it on, the picture dims noticeably as the angle you are at increases

It's Vizio !

 

Vizio only supports it's products for 1-3 years then it's dropped to force you into paying for a new tv . What that means is after the time runs out your tv will no longer be able to play Netflix , HuLu etc plus they have really bad customer support ,...
