That's great. Was it just in cartons or have they set up a display? In any case you should have taken a picture to post--for shame!

It was on display and several were for sale. No picture sorry. The location was the summer land branch on park run, in case someone wants to call for info.

Maybe the 70 has a similar unremarkable Sharp ASV panel that a lot of 70's have or if they had it mounted to high . Not a lot of options for 70" panels AFAIK . Maybe the other sizes will have better performing panels .

I know this is a long shot but my local post office is out of movers packets. Any chance anyone on here has an extra coupon for bestbuy?

60" and 70" are based on Sharp panels and probably the same panels used in Sharp's recently-released UD27U 4K Flagship TVs (60" and 70").

The 55" and 65" are supposedly based on panels from AUO.

We'll just have to wait to hear how the 65" compares to the 70"...

Content will be very mixed between coding, photo editing, video editing, graphic design, and browser usage for work, and gaming for play (really hate that these sets don't have 3D for that).
My secondary use will be as a television playing shows/movies off of my computer, with a seating distance near 10-12' from my bed.

My main use case is fine with a large screen, to the point where it starts to affect usability. I mainly worry about reading small text near the corners.
My secondary use case says get the biggest one possible.

I've been using a 42" monitor for the past 7 years, so I'm accustomed to large screens. Does anyone have any experience using 55+" screens as monitors?
I use 59" at 13 feet for photos and reading and I need to squint. I also use 100" projection at 11 feet for entertainment & reading and I can see pixels at 1080p a bit too clearly, but it's fine otherwise. I think you almost cannot go too big with any size - you just over a larger viewing area with increased size.

I just bought the 70 inch from Costco in Orem, UT. Looks like they had 4 of em on the shelf. Now they have 2.

First one I brought home had a cracked panel, tested the second in store and all was well.

i went for the square trade plan, $80 bucks for it. They said the price had just changed from 100.

As far as the TV is concerned, mostly very happy. Obviously I don't have many devices that support it, but got netflix streaming at 4k and it looks quite impressive. For non 4k content, the upscaling seems to do a pretty good job. Netflix super HD of the avengers looked great especially considering netflix compression. My TV (Google Fiber) looked decent, but I only really tried more compressed networks (FOOD, HGTV, etc), will try ESPN and networks tomorrow. My non-HDMI 2.0 onkyo receiver has 4k upscaling (only to 30 fps obviously) so I am going to compare it to the built in upscaler before deciding on my final configuration.

Default color options are way overblown (vivid mode), but the "calibrated" option (at least to me) had very accurate colors and looked fantastic. The black levels are really impressive for an LCD. The backlit and active zones seem to work well.

I have one minor annoyance so far, when CEC is on, audio from the built in apps (at least netflix, haven't tried others) doesn't get output to my reciever, with or without an optical audio cable. I have to turn off CEC and use the audio cable. But it does seem to be passing 5.1 (need to double check).

The UI is good and surprisingly snappy. Remote is nice, especially with the keyboard on the back (much better than the slider model they used to have).

All in all, I am pretty happy so far and think that its probably the first viable 4k TV for general consumers. $2500 for a 70 inch backlit LED is a pretty good deal, even without it being 4k. Now I just need a video card for my HTPC with hdmi 2.0

Congratulations! The UI had better be snappy--no one is using a beefier CPU/GPU chip in a television that I know of (though some are using what should be equally fast chips in their top model lines); one of the main reasons that I prefer this model over others.

Could you try something for me? What do you see if you play "El Fuente: 60 MP10" or "Test Pattern: Downscaling 2997fps 10Min" or "Example Short 23.976", test clips with bit rate/resolution information printed on each of their constituent video encodes. I'm interested in the intermediate bit rate values as they ramp up, presumably to 4K (I know that they used "El Fuente" for 4K testing and "Test Pattern" says that its original source was 4K res).

No big--I'll be able to answer this for myself whenever mine gets here, but curiosity is killing me .

Since this has been a "speculation" thread, and you are the first with product, how about you starting a new thread?? If you need help on the 1st post let me know.
It needs to be full of details about the series with links so other can revert back for info. A 2nd post 'reserved' for additional info and screen shots is wise also.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way.
The Internet is no place for streaming video.

I agree. Estimated adoption rate for the US is only expected to be 10% by 2017 for 4K, according to market research firm Strategy Analytics. Source: http://www.pcworld.com/article/26831...nto-a-dud.html

That prob means a small amount of 4K content for the next several years, I suppose.

Isn't there already a P Series thread here: Vizio P Series UHDTVs at CES 2014


The name mentions CES but I don't think that matters anymore.
