'Lightning' struck, as my brother stops by and gifted me a P502ui-B1E (50")! Wow!

We boxed up the M401i-A3 and he took that back.

First quick impression - Wow! While I do not have the top tier ISP speed, I did manage to get a 'stuttering' peek at some 4K video...

WoW! Such detail! I did view a Test video that I think was 'half' 4K and it streamed ok. Looks great!

I saw that during my P502's 2nd time-only power up, it received a new firmware update (1.1.1.9).



I'm off to the P-Series Owner's Thread. I hope you all that have the 1.60xx update problem - that Vizio comes through with a fix.

I didn't know until now that there is a Vizio 1.60 Defective Firmware Thread. I'm curious to read that, myself.

Thanks to ya all! This thread/Forum has been a nice help. I'll probably run into some of you that were/are here in this thread.



Bye!

Anyone know if the 1.60 had any positive aspects at all? (or what they were supposed to improve?) I've only read about the changes added to the menu with 1.34 that my unit doesn't have with 1.25...

Did anyone ever post a positive aspect of the 1.60 update or was it all bad for all models that got it?

Did you read the Vizio 1.60 Defective Firmware Thread? I believe that info is in there. I did a quick read of it and some 'later' versions of a board worked ok and the earlier ones appear to require a board change.

There appears to be no way to go 'back' with an earlier firmware. It either works, or 'breaks' the TV.

Don't quote me on this - read the thread to be sure.

It's adds the option to change the gamma on the TV. That's a nice positive, but it's instantly outweighed by the fact that smart dimming is now broken.

I wouldn't recommend to update to 1.60. My M60 was replaced twice after that, and then replaced by a P60 because Vizio wasn't sure what was going on. So, I would stay away from updating until the issues are fixed. Vizio finally send me a refund two days ago. I am hoping it gets here today or tomorrow.

Not worth calling Vizio if the warranty is up. I am done with this brand. My M701d-A3r developed a dark right half of the screen at 15 months. They informed me it is un-repairable. I figure this tv has cost me $170 a month for 15 months and now it can't be fixed? I have no problem getting burned by a warranty and having to pay for a repair, but to throw the unit away? I'm done with them. Good luck with yours!

Sams and Costco give you an extra year warranty so if purchased at one of those retailers you're still covered. MANY credit cards also give you extended warranty on major purchases. Make sure you check all your options.
