Vizio M65, M70 or E70?

by gilbertcrimlaw / August 24, 2017 6:58 PM PDT

I've done a fair bit of research and determined that for my needs, balancing all considerations, a Vizio is the TV for me.

I'm torn between the M65-E0, M70-E3, and E70-E3. Keep in mind I am in Canada, so prices will be a little higher than most of you are used to seeing and are in Canadian funds.

Right now I can get a

M65-E0 for $1399
M70-E3 for $2299
E70-E3 for $1699

Balancing size, quality differences and budget, can anyone recommend one of these options?

The difference of 65 to 70 inches does matter to me somewhat. Enough to make a $900 leap from the M65 to M70? Possibly not.

Enough to take a drop in quality from the M65 to the E70 for bigger size? Possibly, depending on how significant a drop in quality. If the differences are mainly ones I won't take advantage of, then I'd probably opt for the bigger screen size over more features. However, if it's something as fundamental as the picture quality that's seriously compromised, then I'd likely stay with the M65.

The reviews didn't seem to slam the e70.

In fact, CNET wrote "The bigger Vizio E series sets offer the best picture quality available in this price range, thanks to local dimming." but the M series has HDR10 which might matter in the future.

The price between the 70 inch models is most likely due to HDR10 processing and the licenses for that.

There's HDR and then there is HDR10. I only checked the current specs.
