This is VERY YMMV!

Just went to my local Walmart and snagged a 65" Vizio 2017 P series for $850 before taxes, new in box. Also according to Brickseek, the 55" has been discounted to $499.

P65-E1 $850
P55-E1 $499

The P-Series was Vizio's previous top of the line TV's for 2017. They have up to 128 local dimming zones, Dolby Vision, and native 120hz refresh rate. The 65" is a VA panel, 55" is an IPS panel. Google Chromecast is built in. No TV tuner is built in. Generally positive reviews, Rtings link [rtings.com].

According to Brickseek, the prices were previously $1350 for the 65" and $899 for the 55", and just changed today (5/23). Walmart associates were surprised as well.

Conway, AR 72032 has 2 65"
Littleton, CO 80123 has 2 65"
Decatur, GA 30032 has 2 65"

Update 5/25, still available at my local walmart.

My local store has 5 55 inchers. Wish it was the 65. Glad I didn't get the 75.

Went to a store in Dallas and all they had was a display model at the 850 price tag.

Anyone know if Walmart will price match another store that has none left in stock? Can only find one store with it in the city but it's listed at regular price.

I've checked a couple zipcodes across the country, and most places do NOT have it in stock at this price, but some places do. Also the Brickseek inventory count may not be accurate, as it said there were 3 in stock for me, but I only saw 1 in store.

According to Brickseek, the prices were previously $1350 for the 65" and $899 for the 55", and just changed today. Walmart associates were surprised as well.

Vizio 2017 P series 65" is VA panel, 55" is IPS panel. This is a 4K UHD HDR TV that does Dolby Vision, but does not have a tuner. Generally positive reviews.

I was looking to purchase the VizioP-65 at Walmart and I didn't want to wait for it to be shipped. I went to BrickSeek and started checking stores around me and I saw a store that had 4 in stock and instead of the price being $1098, it was $849. I drove right over and they had 2 on display under clearance signage.

They also had the P55 for $499 and had several.

SKU for the 65 is 448134617

Currently BrickSeek is showing 69% of stores have them in stock

This a better deal than the YMMV 75" Samsung for $849?

If you want sheer size, maybe not, but the P-series Vizio is certainly a stronger TV than the Samsung one. Miles ahead actually.

I bought the last one at our walmart last night. Asked the manager if they would take anymore off. She took off $100 more so I got it for $749. It never hurts to ask about clearance items at Wally World!

Very true, i just scored a bucket load of lightning charging cables for $1 each by just asking. Clearance sticker price was $2.50! Manager actually said I could take all 10!

My local store has one 65" left, but it's a display. They said it was only on display for about a month at the front of the store. They'll take 20% off the $850 making it $680 but that it would be a final sale and not returnable....

What does everyone think? Feel a little uneasy about open box and not returnable...

I think people are generally uneasy about display models since they're on all day. However, these are LEDs and not OLED, so you don't have to worry about burn-in. If it's only been on display for a month that's pretty good. I'd take a careful look at it while in store, make sure there's no bad pixels or banding. The 2017 Vizio P series had some reports of a white line, so look out for that. Otherwise, 20% off is always nice. Maybe ask for 10% with return option too or ask for warranty?
