UPDATE: Back on sale, but only for $899.99 instead of the $799.99


I have been watching this bad boy for awhile, and the 50 inch has finally dropped in price by $100. Probably for memorial day weekend, but I'm not sure.

If you go to the Vizio website and sign up for their email list, they will mail you a 5% off coupon. I just bought this model from my local Best Buy, and they took 5% off because I had that coupon from Vizio. YMMV.

Here is how the price played out for me: $899.99 - $45 (5%) +$5 CA Recycle fee + $68.40 (8% tax) = $928.39 out the door. The price just dropped another $100, so I they refunded me $108 (kept the $45 discount). End cost was $820.39 out the door.

RTings provides incredible, specific, technical reviews and gives this series a great review. Check it out here:

The AVS forum also has a lot of insight and discussion about this series from actual owners of the TV. The engineer for this TV chimes in now and then to answer questions or respond to issues of bugs, etc.:

the 50" does not support 1080p@120hz for all you PC gamers. This is a great deal but think the 55" @ $1099 is the better deal.

I'm waiting for the 75 or 80" to go on sale.

Nice. I do find it kind of funny that the industry is going backwards with regard to 3D.

I have the 65in TV and absolutely love it for movies and gaming on the Xbox one. Just wish the 65in was on sale like all the other size(only one not on sale at Best Buy) so I could get some money back.

built in Google Cast as OS, no more dead Yahoo VIA plus apps. Also NO TUNER if that's important. I have the 2014 P series as HTPC.

The 55" has an IPS panel instead of a VA, which means inferior black levels.
