Here is a link to our news article on the release of the new 2017 model M and P Series: Vizio's 2017 M-Series and P-Series 4K TVs Hit Retail Stores

Key Features
4K Ultra HD: Astonishing Clarity with 8.3 million screen pixels form a pristine 4K Ultra HD picture with impeccable details and brilliant clarity in everything you watch.
XLED Plus Picture: XLED Plus full-array local dimming dramatically enhances bright levels and fine tunes the precision of 4K Ultra HD for an unreal picture experience. The power of XLED Plus advances High Dynamic Range even more with impressive color depth, extreme contrast and brighter brights for a new world of visual excellence.

XHDR Plus: Superior images from a wider color gamut, deeper blacks, vivid contrast and Dolby Vision™ technologies. Experience a wider range of colors and saturation for vivid, beautiful images that stay true to the purity of the picture.
Xtreme Black Engine Plus: Darker Blacks with 32 Local Dimming Zones of XLED Plus intuitively adapt brightness levels for darker, richer blacks without compromising brights.
Chromecast built-In: With thousands of Chromecast enabled-apps you can command your entertainment and easily stream content from your phone directly to your display.

Accessing Chromecast enabled-apps require the Apple or Android app on a mobile device at this time... and according to Vizio there is no estimated time frame for offering the ability to launch SmartCast apps directly from the screen, outside of the "Coming Summer 2017" advertised on their website.

We have the M70-E3 that replaced our Panasonic plasma set. It's installed and awaiting our custom built LCR that will be placed just beneath the display.

I will hang on to the Infinity Primus bookshelf speakers for our bookshelf/monitor speaker evaluation tentatively planned for next year.

Picture looks best in the "Calibrated Dark" mode... it's a bit too bright in the "Calibrated" mode. The only complaint I have right now is with the inability to launch streaming apps within the screen using our MX-890 remote. Hopefully that will be available soon. In the meantime we will use a Roku Ultra, as I despise having to use my phone for anything other than to talk to someone. I prefer using a single remote for navigating everything... no having to pick up or rely on other devices to operate everything. Not to mention the app is clumsy.
