This is the usual price for the E series. For the D series, it should be much lower. I believe this is $398 at Walmart. Not counting the Dell gift card, of course.

Thanks for the feedback Smilie

For anyone shopping around and comparing, is it the Walmart deal for model D55un-E1, found here?

Here are VIZIO's product pages for each model to compare features:Some differences:
  • D55un-E1
    • 3x HDMI ports
    • no built-in 'smart' apps / features (no Ethernet port / WiFi)
    • 60Hz effective refresh rate
    • 200K:1 contrast ratio
  • D55-E0
    • 4x HDMI ports
    • 'Smart' TV w/ built-in apps (adds Ethernet / WiFi)
    • 120Hz effective refresh rate w/ Clear Action 180 (info [cnet.com])

Your breakdown is pretty misleading... The only real differences are the HDMI ports and the smart features. The rest is all the same. Both have a full array backlight, both are truly 60hz.

That being said this isn't a bad deal if you can use the gift card, however I am positive the near future will bring us better discounts on better tv's.

If you need one now though...

Apologies, as my intention was never to mislead Smilie The goal was only to provide info about the other TV krayziejoe mentioned and list the specs as VIZIO has them noted as best I could (with links for others to reference/research on their own).

Correct, both are truly 60Hz panels. According to the specs, the D55-E0 can produce an effective 120Hz rate through motion interpolation (soap opera effect); whereas the D55un-E1 doesn't seem to make mention of whether it's capable of doing the same (if anyone happens to own that model could maybe shed some light?).

The D55-E0 also lists it has 10 zones (Full Array LED); where the other model doesn't seem to list the number of zones. Hope this helps clear up my post a bit further. Thanks! Smilie

Yeah, I get it, and sorry, I didn't mean to sound so rude. For most people, the only difference they would notice is what I mentioned. The "effective 120" is just backlight flickering to simulate 120, but is really 60hz. The backlights are the same, but one has "10 active zones". With only 10, the effect would be better left off anyway, effectively making them the same.

The gift cards are worth less now. They wont price match items if you want to use a gift card. Their customer service is in the Philippines now

I just price matched using a promo card a few weeks ago. Show me in their policy where it says they will price match "unless you are paying with a GC". I just use chat. Works every time if link and competitor are valid. Try again if they hassled you, and point to their price match policy Wink

I ask for price match without mentioning payment. Once it is approved, I just tell them I have a GC to use first. Never been a problem. Good luck!

"5M:1 contrast ratio" vs "200k:1"
is a Huge difference

5 Million:1 vs 200k:1 in itself is a Huge difference, im a TV junkie and im just going to say i dont feel you tried to mislead anyone as E series is in fact an upgrade in every sense of the word.

It would be a huge difference, if those numbers were real. That's just vizio marketing hype. If you believe that tv can get a 5m:1 contrast ratio in any real world use case, then I have a sweet bridge to sell you in Brooklyn my friend. The well regarded E series is closer to 5000:1 in the real world, and that tv is better than this D series (yes, this is the D, not the E or the M which was quoted above) in every way. Sorry, I really am not intending to offend or argue, but to provide the users of this site with good information they can use when making a buying decision. And no one said the original comparison was purposefully misleading, just that it WAS misleading.

Were you buying a computer or electronic accessories? They have different customer service location for each department. The one for electronics and accessories is located in the philipines and they say that it takes 24-48 hours to get price match approval and that they will "call me back once it is approved" but really they just drop the request. They also said need to process gift cards through phone because they don't have the ability to process gift cards through chat anymore.

Dealing with offshore call/chat centers is always a problem. I usually chalk it up to poor training though. It was a BT speaker, they did need to get it approved (don't know from where), but that only took like five minutes. Then they asked for payment info and I said I had a GC, and would pay balance with CC. I have had issues where they would only take two forms of payment before, but since then have used three quite a few times.

They also dont price match to things that say "sale" on the website.

I mentioned this on another thread, but Dell changed the policy on promo code usage. You have to email them with the orig order #, date, shipping address where you received the promo code. Then it goes up to the management for approval before your order can go through. I'm still waiting for my order even though I used my legitimate promo codes.

Emailed a few times because they said they'll call once it's been approved, but still no response after a day. Mad

I'll just leave this here. Easier for everyone. I have used Dell price match numerous times. With and without promo cards. Any rep you talk to that says anything other than their official policy is misinformed. Here you go:
