Even with 4K models that are flooding the market and so many more to come, Vizio’s M801d-A3R still dominates the market as most 80-inch models sold. In fact, they dominate if you compare to both Sharp’s 80 and 90 inch models combined. Given, Sharp now makes a great 240hz 80-inch display. Both model scan be arguably close to quality, but Vizio still takes the cake when it comes to numbers.
At ProAudio, we have been able to work with many large screen models and can vouch for the Vizio as being a big bang for your dollar. That’s what mostly separates it from the other models. More and more people have been able to afford a larger screen due to these low price points, and this causes the M801d-A3R to just roll off the shelves.
Just 5-6 years ago, you would be spending the same amount of money on a 60-inch LED. To think that you can now fill that space with something much larger is a grand feeling to most. Now you can have 80 giant inches of mind blowing picture, along with 3D (and 8 pairs of glasses!). Apps, smooth refresh rate and great for sports!
It will be interesting to see how well the model fairs later this year when some of the serious 4K models begin to lunch (sometime around October-December).
In the meantime, you can check out the Vizio here and make it your own!
