I think dpiantino, phag80, and others expose the interesting dilemma regarding this set. Although some have gotten $1500 deals, the set is currently selling close to list ($2000) which still may be a great deal versus the competition IF the set performs as advertised. Forgetting the small stuff, it appears there are a wide range of problems with the panel or back-lighting that are not going to be fixed with firmware upgrades. How many trips swapping this 100lb beast out at Costco does it take before the deal doesn't look like a deal anymore. Reminds me of that Dirty Harry line "Do you feel lucky, punk - well do you".
My local Sams has a couple of these left at $1,880, and a couple pallets of the E60 at $978 (half the price). The "M" series 65" models seem to have far fewer problems which is probably why they are sold out everywhere. Oh, what to do? I'd really like to pull the trigger on one of these before my Sony 60" craps out (it's dangerously close right now). Just wondering how "lucky" I feel today.
Any one else wresting with a decision between the Vizio models mentioned?
