Not the lowest price in the last few months, not even from Costco, but the first BF discount for this product.

Trying to decide between this and the Sony x900e.

It looks like this price is good until 11/22. Wonder what it will be after that?

Same here but I pulled the trigger yesterday on the x900e. The stand was the deciding factor based on my setup lol

What was the lowest price in the last few months? Can't tell if this is slick or not. Costco also has M70 for $1299.

No, it's just their FALD stuff.

This is XLED Pro so the best one they offer with FALD support. It has DV support so that's nice, but at the same time reading the reviews on Costco that TV has a lot of complaints about hardware failures.

Yea that stand is soooo much better. A lot of people don't have huge width to make that base available.

The Sony has far better FALD performance though as well as brightness and what not.

I'm confused. You say the Sony has better FALD performance (local dimming) but you link to a review site that specifically says the P series is better at that. As far as I am aware the Vizio P series has the best non-OLED local dimming in that price segment.

I have the P series and love it but I'd likely also choose the x900e if choosing today.

I meant FALD as far as brightness, contrast, and overall performance. Read the whole review top to bottom as well.

It honestly all comes down to personal preferences. I'd rather have the Sony, but that costco warranty is a nice change.

Vizio has better FALD performance so it has better reviews for watching in the dark, and it also has Dolby HDR. I've heard the upscaling is poor but 1080 is fine so it's a non issue for me. You also get the extended warranty with Costco.

The Sony has brighter colors, better grey scale, so it is better for sports and brighter rooms, and is probably the better all around TV.

That being said, both are great so it's a tough choice if the Vizio drops another $100-$200 vs the current $1500 Sony price.

I want this TV but it was $1299 @ Costco not much more than a month ago. I'm hoping it will hit this price again sometime in Jan.

Let me put it this way -- the Vizio has been $1199 before which is a much better deal.

This is the cheapest the Sony has ever been and the drop is close enough that I'd take Sony quality over Vizio.

If the Vizio were $1199 again then I'd probably take that instead.

I got this for $1299 from Costco recently and I love this TV. I got a replacement swivel stand for about $40 shipped because my stand was not wide enough for Vizio's legs. At the same time I bought it, I could have gotten Sony 900E for about $1500 + tax from a local store, which I was strongly considering against this TV. To me, Vizio won because of Dolby Vision and having slightly lower input lag for gaming, plus having a lower price. Both are excellent choices for mid-range TVs.

Where did you buy and what brand swivel stand for $40?
