I would really advice against comparing TV's in a big box store. Unless they are side by side playing a 4K HDR content, it's nearly impossible to see how well one perform better than the other. I have a 70" led tv for years than bought a 65" oled. The difference was pretty big. Then I put on 4K HDR content, the results became night and day. I put the 70" in the guest room instead.

I had the exact same dilemma! Honestly, whichever one you get, you're going to want to upgrade for the other reason in the near-future. Get the Quantum, you'll want a bigger screen a couple years from now. Get the bigger screen, you'll want a QLED, as regular LCD's will be phasing/phased out.

I personally went for the Quantum. It will end up being a little cheaper and I think I'll mostly be happy with it for the long run. I really am happy with mine and I think the brightness of the TV strangely makes the TV look larger than it is! In the off chance that I do want to sell it in the near future, I personally think it'll have the higher resale value of the two. The 2019 Quantum 65" won't be much better than the 2018, and the 75" doesn't have that Quantum or QLED label you can add to the description that will deter a lot of people.

I'm a little worried that there's a large amount of folks on here that think the only advantage that the PQ65-F1 has over the P-series is that it is brighter. The higher nit output of the PQ65-F1 (advertised as 2000, but benchmarks have it maxed out between 2000-2500) is going to help out with the contrast and black levels.

There are other key advantages that the PQ65-F1 has over the P65-F1. Screen has glossy material that reflects light much better, unlike the P65-F1 that has a semi-glossy screen. This is key since the panel for both are VA, which is susceptible to light reflections. If you're mounting this onto the wall, you'll also appreciate the bezel on the PQ65-F1 -- it's almost bezel-less and all four sides match, unlike the P65-F1. The P65-F1's bezel is the same size, but the illusion gets thrown off with the different (silver) color chosen for the bottom part. Don't know why Vizio went that route, it just doesn't look good.

On RTings.com and in other reviews and throughout Reddit, there's a reason why the Vizio PQ65-F1 is being compared to both the Samsung Q8FN and Q9FN. As of the time of this post, the 65" Q8FN's lowest price I'm seeing from a respectable retailer is $2299, while the same for the 65" Q9FN is $2997. Let's put that into perspective, a $1399 65" Vizio is being compared to a TV that is between $900-1600 more expensive!

For comparison sakes, the P65-F1 is mostly being compared to the TCL R6-series and the Sony X900F, which the 65" versions cost around $799 and $1699, respectively. The 65" Vizio P65-F1 currently costs around $999.

At the end of the day, both the Vizio P65-F1 and PQ65-F1 are both great televisions! If you do desire a larger television, the P75-F1 is hard to beat at $1649 right now. But I needed to break this all down to all those that are claiming that there is no (visible) difference between the P65-F1 and PQ65-F1 to justify spending an extra $400. The Vizio P-Series Quantum will have better blacks, better color variation, screen (for reflection), HDR-performance, bezel design, and bright-room performance.

Getting torn to shreds between PQ65 and P75 @1499. Can any one help me bite either bullet? I mostly game on PS4 pro and one x (70%, watch streaming stuff 29%, 1% others). I prefer the big screen but at this price, not sure if pq is a better buy.

I was fortunate to see the 65 inch P and the PQ side by side at my Costco. The difference in picture quality did not justify the $600 extra to me so i went with the 65 P and happy with it. The 75 P also looked great. If you prefer the bigger size go with the 75. You can always play around with the picture quality to suit your needs, but stuck with the size.

Wanted just this piece of info. Thank you! Even with a marginally better picture quality, I feel PQ65 would not feel as immersive as a 75inch in my space (10.5ft viewing distance). I guess I will look at it as paying the 600 for the extra 10 inches rather than better brightness/ quality given that the increase in quality is not substantial. I did see some 65,75 tvs side by side and the size difference is not ignorable.

Trust me. I am watching IPL on the 65 P right now and wish the TV was bigger, not brighter.

Finally. Pulled the trigger on a tv after hours of researching. Looked a LG Oled, Samsung QLED deals the other day, Vizio, Sony, everything. Went on RTngs for all of these, and this Vizio had the most balanced review as well as even cheaper than some of the alternatives.

Happy that this is over. Will let you know how it is once I receive it.

I agree. You have to understand that big box stores only shows the comparison while showing the most vivid and brightest video. The true comparison is when comparing upscaled SDR and dark content. I was impressed with the black levels of the PQ65. Upscaled content didn't look as great compared to like a Sony or Samsung, but it looked worse on a 75", probably because the picture was more stretched out and pixelated.

Also a heads up, Sam's Club has this for the same price. So if anyone wants to price match with a local competitor and can't get away with the fact that Costco's model number is different (PQ65-F instead of PQ65-F1), Sam's Club has the full model number listed.
