Hello everyone I just wanted to know if anyone knew anything about this model M701D-A3, I have read some reviews but couldn't find much from people that actually own it.

Up there is the costco link, I think it's a costco model or something.

 

Anyway anyone know how the PQ is? Do you recommend it? Is it worth it?

 

Thank you.

It is an LCD, therefore it has lackluster PQ.

not a bad set for the money vs screen size. 

 

Off axis viewing is not good. It is quite bright. Consider adding a DVDO DUO or Lumagen processor if color accuracy is important to you.

Welcome to the forum Mike :)

Im not sure I understand. You cant find owner reviews besides the 23 owner reviews on the costco link you provided? Did you check amazon user reviews also?

I wanted actual replies from people, I dont know if you're new to the internet but most companies review their own stuff on websites like amazon and of course give 5 stars.

Thats why I dont trust those.

I doubt very many people who buy based on PQ buy Vizio. We are an enthusiast site.

 

Enthusiasts typically don't buy bargain bin LCD. Many of us don't buy LCD at all. The only LCD I have are the ones attached to laptops, cell phones and tablets.

I buy LCDs all the time and love them. You just have to know their weaknesses.
