  1. I bought a Vizio M65-D0 at the beginning of the month. I purchased it because of reading the Cnet review. First I hated the tablet/remote. Next I was disappointed that I could not get Amazon Prime. I watched a few Netflix documentary in 4k and the picture quality was great. I watch mostly regular network broadcast programs. They were usually in 1080i and sometimes 720p. I played with all of the settings and did not really get great pictures in my opinion. Watching baseball was pathetic. It was in 720P. After 2 weeks I returned it for a refund. I now watch baseball on my 10 year old non-smart Vizio 47″ TV. The picture quality is great compared to the Vizio 4k 65″. I wish I could buy a 65″ 1080 TV, but the local stores don’t have any left in stock. My opinion is that 4k TV’s are great if you watch 4k content.

    • Joe I’m sorry to hear about your troubles buying a 4K TV. Your experience is common when buying a 4K HDTV for sports. I point out in our “best TV for watching sports guide” that there are very little sports programming being broadcast in 4K currently. That will change in the future, we are just not sure how quickly.

      As you experience with Netflix, there is more and more 4K TV and movie programming. If you primarily use your HDTV for watching movies and TV, a 4K is a good option. You will still need to watch movies with a Blu-ray player or stream 4K content online to enjoy the full benefits.
