Vizio P65-E1 (2017) on sale - $1399.99 @Costco.com

The P65-E1 is on sale on the Costco website for 1399.99 until 8/18. Not sure about in stores though. I saw the P65-C1(2016) for $1500 at a store just a few days ago, so this seems like a pretty good deal unless you really want the tablet that came with the 2016 model.

I have been waiting for the M65 to go back to $999 somewhere ($200 below MSRP) but I went ahead and bit at this price on the P65. Unsure how much better the P series really is than M overall, but looking forward to it!

It should'be wide enough, cause my 65" LG 4K HDR Smart TV(OLED65C6P) is 56.9" wide. So this 65" Vizio P-Series, which should have about the same thin bezels as mine, should fit fine. Since it's about the same width & the legs don't go all the ways to the end, it should fit with the P-Series barley sticking out about an inch or so on each side.

P is leagues better. 128 dimming zones vs 32 and a wider gamut. And Dolby Vision, which really helps HDR on sets with low-ish peak brightness. You won't regret the purchase. Dollar for dollar the best 65" TV on the market now.

The only bad use case is HDR gaming. There's a low latency gaming port that bypasses the picture processing for 1080p or 4k60 4:2:0 games, but for 4k 4:4:4 or HDR you have to use a slower port and get 40ms+ latency. Even that's tolerable for casual gaming, but it's poor for competitive play.

The dimensions of all TVs and their packaging is on the Vizio site.

I have the 2016 model with the tablet and it's just terrific. I see the OLED and QLED sets which run over $3000 and then think about how I got mine back in February (and then price-adjusted 6 weeks later) for $1400 and say, "Those don't look over 100% better for the over 100% higher price."

I had tried a 55" KS8000 for two nights before the edge-lighting bleeding and gray letterbox bars sent me screaming back to the store to spend (at first) 55% more for the P65-C1. No regrets and the ability to handle both Dolby Vision (which Netflix does and Vudu does ONLY) and HDR10 combined with the killer local dimming makes it the best bang for buck option out there.

As a bonus, Vizio's CTO participates in and monitors the AVS Forum owner's thread for bug reports, beta updates and feedback. We knew that Amazon Video was FINALLY coming to SmartCast a month before the general public. (Still doesn't have HDR, but it's coming.)

According to the Vizio SmartCast FAQ page [vizio.com], you should have it or be getting it soon. Not sure if firmware versions are universal across lines, but I'm in the beta group and have v3.3.18.1 and non-beta owners are reporting seeing it. Try checking for an update in the menu.

SmartCast is very limited at the moment. Has a tiny handful of apps: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Vudu, I Heart Radio, Xumo, Pluto TV, Crackle and that's about it. No YouTube, HBO GO/NOW, etc., but those are still castable; they're just not built into SmartCast yet.

Does anyone know if it's okay to use a friend's costco membership online? How does the 2 year warranty work in that case?

The specs on the 2016 and 2017 are identical. You receive the tablet controller on the 2016, but not on the 2017. You can contact Vizio for the new smaller/normal controller and they'll send you one for free. Otherwise, it's like 15usd on Amazon.
