    Best Buy staff have not received commission on sales in over 25 years at least but the sales guy still should not have disparaged any product.

    Last night my wife and I were commenting on how much better the picture is on the $200 TCL Roku 55 in 4k TV I bought at Target a few weeks ago versus the $1,200 Vizio M-series 70-inch 4k TV we have in the living room. The Vizio is a few years old and lacks HDR, so maybe that is the difference.

    I recently got a Vizio TV on sale (last year's P-Series Quantum) and I'm very happy with it... except for the CRAZY REFLECTIVE SCREEN!!


    All TVs now seem to be so horribly reflective, presumably because any non-reflective coating would mean they can't boast about having enough nits to fry your eyeballs.


    I genuinely hope that the next big shift in "premium" screen is non-reflective screens rather than just more pixels that nobody in a real living room can detect. The whole 8k thing is utter nonsense.

    Vizio TVs are excellent. I've owned 2 and loved both of them, and anything M-series/P-series and up are great.


    Also, I would suggest that you don't wait for Vizio's CES TVs. Generally, the models they've announced at past CES shows haven't been widely available in stores until July-ish of that year.
