The absolute best picture available at any price . Impeccable service . Mor than 5 stars,
Another caveat . Several reviews describe using this TVas a monitor for their computer or for gaming . I bought this for a home entertainment center. I suspect most others are looking for the same . So my review is for the M70 4k ultra hd smart LED hdtv 240 hs. For my stated purpose. If you want this for home entertainment my review is for you .
The picture is beyond expectations . Crisp , no blur , no judder or sputter . You can watch formula.1 racing or Jason Spieths fastest swing with no blur . The picture needs tweaking . This takes less than 5 min.. Flesh tones are spot on . Set up is simple . The stands are good and hold this monster stable . Viewing from any angle is great to awesome. No bad . The picture is far better than any movie theatre .in any mode , 4k or not , the picture is clear ,crisp and as I said awesome . The 4k from Netflex rivals Ansel Adams for clarity and detail . Nature documentaries put you in the scene. Though not 3d it feels like it . The depth of colors is natures own .
No one wishing a home theatre would expect the sound from ANY TV screen to be adequate. I have 7 speakers , a great receiver , a giant twin speaker ( heavy ) woofer from THX . Two rear speakers are imbedded in the ceiling . You are NOT buying this TV to be a sound system . You are buying a truly superb picture . It’s senseless to comment on the sound quality. Quality sound is impossible in any flat screen. So , expect to spend whatever your budget can stand for sound .
So how do I rate this TV . I wish I could give 10 stars . You cannot do better for picture quality. I recommend a good audio sound specialist or a name brand system . Don’t forget your theater chairs , popcorn machine , etc.. I could add tech talk . But , why! Enjoy . My puppy loves the picture.
One additional important point . Using Amazon prime the set arrived when promised . Two very nice men unboxed , set the screen on the stands , plugged it in and waited to be sure there was no damage or grey screen . Making sure we were pleased they then carried away the debris.

Great TV for a computer monitor!,
Mostly happy with the TV, but I’ve had a few problems:
In 1080p @ 120Hz there is a problem with the TV dropping out to a black screen (is somewhat infrequent, but still annoying). From the comments below, seems like this is a common thing. Hopefully an update to the TV will fix this.
One LED section of the TV in the top left is slightly less bright than the others. Took me a few weeks to notice. It’s really only apparent during white screens, but could be annoying to someone who is very picky about it.
Due to the two problems above, I’ve lowered the review to 4/5. I still would recommend the TV.
Onto the original review-
I see there are a few fake/useless reviews for this TV (M43-C1), so I thought I’d post something since I actually own it.
A quick warning to those who are buying into the 4K trend: Be aware that there is little to no content available for 4K at the moment, except for content generated by a computer (and a very good computer if you’re planning to play games @ 4K). The Xbox One and PS4 technically have 4K capability, but isn’t currently available, and will most likely be restricted to videos and simple games. If you’re buying this strictly for the 4K but are not going to use it as a computer monitor, just be aware that you may find something at 1080p for a better price.
I’ve purchased this TV for use as a computer monitor. So far, this has met or exceeded expectations I had for the TV. I’m using port 5 on HDMI for gaming mode for minimal input lag. All “assists” are turned off. Before I turned them all off, I noticed that the screen was flickering due to the setting “clear action”, but immediately ceased once it was turned off. The input lag is imperceivable.
A desktop at 4K is stunning, albeit useless unless the TV is at a normal monitor’s length away from you. One of the highlights of this TV is that it can display 1080p with a true 120Hz source! This is much different than the 120 or 240Hz you see advertised on other TVs – this is 120Hz of true information input. Typically, when a TV manufacturer has a refresh of over 60Hz, the input is locked to 60Hz. They then take two frames of data out of the 60Hz input and insert averaged frame(s) to reach whatever refresh frequency they’re looking for. This creates input lag and can cause a soap opera effect, which is generally undesirable. This TV looks fantastic at 1080p @ 120Hz. I tried a few hours of Counter Strike: Global Offensive and couldn’t find a weakness with the picture (although I’m terrible at the game).
The speakers shoot out of the rear of the TV, which is obvious due to the size of the bezel. They’re not great. They’ll work in a pinch, but I’d recommend some sort of sound system with this TV.
I had low expectations for the on-board apps, but they’re not too bad, especially with the remote having a QWERTY keyboard. YouTube worked as expected, although for some reason was stuck at 480p. I didn’t spend too much time tinkering with it.
As far as picture quality is concerned, I don’t have the experience or tools to verify color calibrations and things like that. I’d recommend http://www.rtings.com/reviews/tv/lcd-led/vizio/m-series-2015 this review of the m-series. I’m not sure if all of the panels are the same, but it does score pretty well.
All in all, as long as this holds up over time, it was well worth $600.
