Vizio M65-E0 4K 65" led tv for $997 no tax FS ymmv

+9 Deal Score

Was following the ad that was posted a few days ago for the vizio M65-E0 at Costco for $999. Today Vizio dropped the price on their website to $1049. If you use code VIZIOMP17 it gives 5% off and brings it down to $997. The real benefit is buying from vizio directly is if they are not located in your state there's no sales tax. Tv would be $997 instead of $1068 in my state. Link posted below:

Costco you get a 2 + 2 = 4 year warranty ( If you use the Costco credit visa card ) + If you use there Visa card and you are a Executive Membership you get 4% cash back ( 2 + 2 ) makes the tv about $960 + tax
You also have 90 days to return the TV if you dont like it.

Ok good to know, this is still a good option for those who don't have the costco credit card.

Ehh...I'll pay the extra $70 to get a 4-year warranty and no-hassle return if I ever need to use it. That's definitely worth it.

Also, you do realize that most states have a use tax that you are required to pay for such purchases, right? Just because the merchant doesn't charge you sales tax, doesn't magically mean you don't owe anything.

Excellent TV, probably the most future-proof 65" at this price-point. Very well-reviewed on Rtings as well.

I'm seeing that the 2016 M-Series actually got a higher overall rating than the 2017 M-Series. As I understand it, the 2016 didn't do wide-color nor have brightness levels to truly do HDR. While the 2017 does. The fact this major difference exist and it still managed to score less than last year's model is a bit alarming.

Can you save me from having to read the review and tell me what new shortcomings are in the 2017 that the 2016 model did better? Based on the number ratings, it looks like they put too much focus on HDR and as such, non-HDR viewing quality is lesser. Considering most content isn't HDR yet, it may be best to get the 2016 and wait a few more years until someone really tackles HDR without compromise at this price point.

Also, looking at the review for the TCL P607, it looks like it is the better option in this price range.

I doubt many Americans of these States pay the BS use tax coming tax season. I highly doubt anyone in CA will pay use tax when buying goods from BHPhoto lol.

Like most crimes, whether they do it or not is up to them. It's called tax invasion and is illegal to not do so, however. My point is that "no sales tax" should not be considered a better deal, because more times than not you still owe that tax in the form of use tax. It's a mentality that has gotten out of control and there are going to be a lot of people in shock once governments start cracking down on it like they are starting to.

I think we need to start a GoFundMe so we can build a wall to keep the tax invaders at bay.

yes I could settle for a killer M deal but still looking for that elusive P65-c1 or TCL 65 in time for football. HDR is still a mess, slowing down everything.

The 2016 65" P-Series is most likely all gone, since it's not even listed available on vizio.com anymore. The 65" TCL P607 hasn't even been released yet.
