We have to remember there were MANY more sets in the E and M series which allowed the much slower rollout. I think the p series will be available much more quickly as a full line. The full P lineup will most likely be available end of sept beginning mid Oct. IF the R series gets released I suspect a Nov/Dec release. If it's true that Vizio no longer will attend CES then release schedule will be on their terms.
There is a P Series launch press event scheduled for September 20-something. It's all very hush-hush and even the existence of the event is under embargo, but the word is out. At least one of our favorite members here on the Forum will be attending. By then, I expect most if not all of the P Series sizes to have been released. For the M-Series, there was only a straggler or two not released by the time of a similar 'official' launch event.
So expect all but one or at most two P Series sizes to be released and in the Channels before the end of September (from Amazon, it looks like the 70", 60". and 55" should all be released, so the 65" and 55" look to be the likely stragglers that may not be out until October).
At the M-Series event there were things said and/or shown regarding the Reference Series which were all under embargo (so we don't really know anything about them). It is almost a certainty that there will be another update on the Reference Series provided at the P Series launch event (and almost certain that such update will once again be under embargo).
imagic attended the M-Series launch event and imagic has been one of the most confident of a 2014 launch of the Reference Series here on the Forum. We don't know what he can't tell us.
I'm not going to make any prediction about the 120" Reference Series (and frankly don't give a hoot about that 'bragging-rights-only' TV), but I believe Vizio has demonstrated smart enough marketing acumen to be sure they catch the Holiday Shopping season with the 65" R Series. So my prediction is that it is widely available in all of the main channels including Best Buy and Amazon well before Black Friday. I'll go out on a limb and predict that the 65" Reference Series is launched before the end of October and certainly no later than early November.
When we hear any rumors about another hush-hush Vizio launch event in early November, we will have the clue that we need...
