Walked into the Harrisburg, PA Costco today and they had crossed out the price tag in red marker and wrote $1499. I talked to the associate who said they were clearing all these out by the end of the year and had never seen a discount this large in the 10 years he's been at Costco. This is $100 cheaper than previous FP/100+ deal.

75" Vizio M75-E1 SmartCast 4K UHD XHDR Plus XLED HDTV on sale for $1499.99 in stores.

Specs:
Resolution: 3840x2160 (4K UHD)
XHDR Plus, Dolby Vision, XLED Plus, SmartCast/Chromecast Built-In
Inputs:
4x HDMI
1x USB
1x Ethernet

He was referring to the original price of $2999.

Makes you wonder why Vizio is discounting these TV's so much. Maybe they have big plans for 2018. More dimming zones and a native 120 Hz panel would be a good start.

I have the M70 from Costco, got it for $1299. Its a good TV, but it's not great. Poor upscaling of lower quality content, and average motion handling. I plan on returning it for a Sony 75x900e, just waiting for a deal.

Are these leftovers from Black Friday? I tried my closest Costco and they said that there are none in all of Vegas and it shows as online only product.

Last I heard vizio is seeking a buyer, they may be trying to clear inventory/increase sales number to look better for potential buyers.

I was in same boat but concerned the X900E doesn't have Dolby vision. What's your thought?

Same here. I thought about what I watch more, and that's TV shows and sports. Standard 4K looks good to me, and the selection of DV content is very limited right now. I honestly don't notice much of a difference between standard 4K and DV on the M70, it depends on what you're watching. For example, the Punisher didn't look any different to me, but the colors in Marco Polo certainly popped more in DV. Those were both on the native Netflix app.

I've also read that a better panel is better than having DV support. The higher end Vizio and TCL TV's support DV, but they can't really utilize it (mediocre color gamuts and brightness). I think you are better off having a better overall TV/panel like the Sony 900. That's my conclusion.

Very helpful. So if a show is available in Dolby Vision, but you have the x900e, will you be able to see the show in HDR or 4K? Or it just resorts back to standard 1080? I'm trying to figure out if I lose on all Dolby shows, or I just have to watch them in another higher resolution format like HDR or 4K.

I believe it reverts to standard UHD/4K. If the TV isn't super bright and colorful to begin with, there's no huge benefit to HDR.

I found this article which states it reverts back to SDR. I think Dolby is a must right now and given x900e doesn't have it and M series can't make use of it, I think it's a bad time to purchase a 75" TV, unless you can afford more than $3k.

"However, many content providers that incorporate Dolby Vision encoding in their content also often include HDR10 encoding as well, specifically to accommodate HDR-enabled TVs that may not be compatible with Dolby Vision. On the other hand, if the content source includes only Dolby Vision and the TV is HDR10 compatible only, the TV will just ignore the Dolby Vision encoding and display the image as an SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) image. In other words, in that case, the viewer will not get the benefit of HDR."
