I am personally about to upgrade to the Vizio M551d-A2R. It will last me until 4k sets are more widely supported. I really don't see a point in buying one right now unless you just have an abundance of money laying around.

Are you waiting for the full array 2014 model?

@chargerz919 you should consider doing this... The 2013 model is edge lit garbage like everything else out there. Wait for the M552i-xxx. It is miles above the 2013 model in many aspects.

After research, I came to the same conclusion. 4k will be lot cheaper later, and there isn't much to utilize it right now. And don't even get me started on 8k.

I thought about waiting, but I really don't have a patience to wait for them to release the 2014 models. If I really think I need to get the 2014 model, I can always sell the 2013 model and get it towards the end of the year.

There are rumors that is just around the corner. There are commercials on youtube, and I have seen some speculate for this spring.

You could even argue that the 2014 E series (which is currently available) is more of an upgrade over a 2013 M series. Full array in all 2014 models. (If you can't wait.)

I'd prefer to buy from best buy, as I can get the 18 months no interest, but they don't carry the 2014 E series yet. Amazon had a 3-6 week shipping wait and Wal-Mart would have to ship it in as well.

So kind of unrelated but... I was in costco tonight and compared a 2014 Vizio e series to a samsung LED. They were both 50", The vizio was like $640 and the samsung was $900. lmaosmiley.gif

I didn't bother to check if the samsung was full array but it just looked bad next to the vizio. The blacks on the vizio were actually pretty good with no blooming. At this point I don't know why anyone in the market for a new LED would buy anything but a Vizio.

I admit, that what Vizio has coming out soon is pretty impressive. They are doing a lot of things right currently. I am excited for the M-series. I joined up over on AVSforum and am following the 2014 VIZIO all models thread. Rumors are for May...
