6 Reasons For

One Industry Award

Reviewed.com gave this television a "Best of Year" award.

Supports Smart TV Features

The VIZIO M70-C3 supports smart TV features, as do most of the other recently released similar spec TVs.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support smart TV features and we think the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], and the UE55KU6079[pl_3390853_price] both from Samsung or the Philips 43PUS6101[plb_3409438_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the M70-C3, the VIZIO M70-C3 has a WiFi connection.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think because of it's better review score, the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], and the UE55KU6079[pl_3390853_price] both from Samsung or the Philips 43PUS6101[plb_3409438_price] is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most televisions that were launched in the last 12 months are not 3D compatible. The VIZIO M70-C3 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UN78JU7500[pl_2756560_price] both from Samsung or the Grundig 55 VLX 8582[plb_3262884_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The VIZIO M70-C3 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the M70-C3 also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UE60JU6400[pl_2894934_price] both from Samsung or the LG 75UH855[plb_3350140_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for the last year, the VIZIO M70-C3 does not feature OLED technology.

Other TVs which also feature OLED technology that you might also want to consider include the U65S8806[pl_3212361_price], or the U55S8806[pl_3213698_price] both from TCL-Digital or the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] which also has a higher rating.
