Got one myself a month ago for $200 and have had 0 issues with it. At $200, nothing at this price sounds and works as good. The previous model of this soundbar had many issues, however after my research, this newer version for sale fixes a lot of complaints, so I would recommend it. However there are a few things to note:

1. The "rear" speakers are wired to the subwoofer, which IS wireless. So, optimal setup has the sub in the back.
2. There is a firmware update that fixes the two biggest issues in the reviews, the rear speakers having a static noise, and the bluetooth always being on. I installed it in mine without any issue.
3. It is INSANELY customizable to your liking, you can set almost every single level and adjustment using the remote.
4. The bass is small, but when I was testing this + other soundbars at my local BestBuy, this model produced the most "true" strong bass. After a showing of Godzilla (2014) which I did see at the theater, I can say this soundbar was about 95% of the sound experience.
5. COSTCO INCLUDES A 2 YEAR WARRANTY WITH THIS UNIT VERSUS THE STANDARD 1 YEAR YOU WOULD GET ELSEWHERE FOR THE SAME MODEL

You will not regret your decision if you pick this soundbar up. I have this with my $250 4k 65" Onn black friday special and it makes a killer budget setup.

The M51 would have better stereo separation simply because it's wider.

Well... they are normal price $249.99. Costco and Best Buy among others usually marks them to $199.99. On black Friday they were $149.99. Seeing as how we won't be getting to $149.99 anytime soon, $159.99 is a good deal considering it's after holiday season.

It's all relative. $209.99 for Air Pods Pro at BJs isn't a great deal for November. But for now? It's a good deal.
It does make a difference. For $40 more, get the Vizio M51a that's in the other thread from Costco. Everyone just needs to understand the content that you play has to be encoded by Dolby Atmos to reap the benefits. But regardless of Atmos, the M51a has a larger subwoofer with wider frequency, the speakers have larger drivers and additional tweeters and a better remote.
Here's the rtings review. Might pick this up for my master bedroom

I've had an older model for years, and have absolutely loved it. Zero issues with it over the years. Mine has HDMI in but its only 1080p, so it wouldnt be worth much use anyway. It supports HDMI ARC and the remote is great, they just updated the app as well and its very easy to use, just a bit slow to connect, even over ethernet.

I just got a in-ceiling system for living room, so I put this vizio in my bedroom, it does a great job projected sound 18 feet across my master bedroom to the bed. Would high reccomend this especially since its only 160.

How big of a deal is not being able to support atmos. Is it really something one can tell the difference ?

They had this for 150 at Black Friday at Costco but still a great deal nonetheless. How do you update the firmware though because the Bluetooth being on all the time is quite annoying.

Anyone compare this to the Yamaha ATS-2090 which is also on sale at Costco for $199? CNET has rated the Yamaha as the best soundbar buy for under $400 but the Yamaha is a 2.1 CH soundbar.

The consensus tends to be that true Atmos with upward firing speakers is fairly significant, but Vizio's new 5.1.2 M-Series soundbar has been delayed by COVID. The 5.1 M-Series that supports virtualized Atmos released recently as a Costco exclusive, I'm not sure how 5.1 virtual Atmos sounds compares to the real thing or a regular 5.1 system though.

That was the 2018 model, this is the 2020/21 model.

lots of people werent impressed with their vizio.
that said, this should still be better than a google home max - now that, is truly underwhelming speaker especially given its audacious, insane 400 original price tag.
