I have seen this being sold in the Costco stores this week.

This version is much better than the bluetooth only versions are often on sale at Walmart. This speaker system can be casted to via Android/iOS/Chrome, and be placed in a google home speaker group.

Bestbuy has it on sale too, but for a higher price. $219.99 , unknown date of expiration.

If you don't have a Costco membership, it would still be cheaper to buy it from Costco and pay the non-membership fee.

Updates to questions:

4K pass through is support can not be verified. Vizio support on Best buy said it is supported, but a user here says it isn't.
HDR10 and Dolby Vision are NOT supported. So use ARC (audio return channel), this is where the sound comes from the tv over HDMI.

Without HDR10/DV HDR, you do not want to use the pass through at all, use ARC.

Here is the product on Vizio's site. https://www.vizio.com/sb3651e6.html

I wonder if this version has the delay issue. I have 3 vizio setups in my house and they have been plagued with the widely known delay issue.

Reviews say yes, thanks for the heads up. Can you recommend an alternative from your experience?

I just got this speaker setup a few weeks ago. What type of delay? Delays in speech when watching shows or movies?

I just use it as a speaker setup and only played with the smart features for a little bit. I have a smart tv, this smart speaker and I disabled those smart devices because the nvidia shield does it all and does it so well. As far as using the device as a 5.1 it works well. On a side note I didn't really care for the vizio app. Oh and the soundbar bluetooth will time out and shut off while music is being played through it from my laptop which is frustrating but could be some setting I haven't found.

The reviews says it turns off due to 'eco mode' you can turn it off in the settings. I have been trying to find everywhere if I can easily connect my laptop to it via bluetooth - is that what you're doing? I want to play my itunes library through it. Currently, I have a 10 year old receiver with a logitech bluetooth adapter on it so I'm hoping this would be an upgrade Smilie

Doesn't HDMI spec includes provisions to ensure that audio and video is in sync? It'll increase input latency if you play games, but for regular TV viewing that isn't an issue.

Yes it is hooked up to a new tv in my office but I was playing youtube through it over bluetooth and it shuts off after I'd say 15mins. Pretty odd that it can't detect that bluetooth is being used so I have to turn off its "eco mode" which is its auto off feature.
I may play with it again. For now I just cast to the shield tv. I prefer youtube through a browser rather than app as then there is no ads.

I got this sound bar recently. This deal is not cheaper than usual. It has been this price for some time.

My only issue with this soundbar is that speech is too low or unclear, often find myself turning up the volume for speech and down for normal sounds

I have this and there is no issue. It has an audio delay function you can set if need be. Great unit especially with Google Play Music connectivity.

These go on clearance for $50-$75 in the coming couple of months. Watch Brickseek for B&M clearance at Target and Walmart.
