Here are a users settings from Amazon that I would like to try. I have gotten a lot of the muddy color out by tuning. Simply turning it on to game mode fixes a lot of the issues. I put the set in store demo mode and it all came right back. I took it back out of store demo and it dumped all my tweaks for some reason. ?

Just tried this setting and it looks really good. Much better than it was. The muddy colors are gone now!

If, like you, your dad is in Indiana, I believe he wouldn't have to pay sales tax on his Amazon purchase (though that will change in Jan 2014 I believe), but would on his Walmart order - probably enough tax that could otherwise be used on a warranty at Costco. Something to bear in mind.
Great point. He got a notification today saying it would be delivered on Friday, so it will be in time for the "Big Game." He is satisfied with that. I'll remind him of the tax thing.

Here.

However, I can't get the coupon to print on my Mac.
The problem is that Java has been disabled by most browsers. If you can enable your Java, you should be able to print it. But just remember to disable it again when you are done.

If Skype is added< I wonder how it will work? Add a camera via USB, message while it runs in the background?

Probably, which would be pretty cool. I was actually wondering if you can only use a Vizio camera, which would stink since I wouldn't be able to use the one I already have.

Tiger Direct offers this set for $899.99, coupon "PUF82060" drops it to $869.99 with free shipping. I had already purchased from Amazon for $888 and was able to price match simply by using the "Found a lower price?" button on my order summary.

Awesome glad to hear it. It appears the price is beginning to creep back up and supply us beginning to dry up a little.

I would drown a litter of puppies to get this TV for under 700 dollars. Was it seriously available for purchase on Amazon on Black friday for 698?

That is INfreakinSANE.

I was in no way serious about the puppies and no animals were harmed during the creation of this response.
