The only reason that TV was priced at 40,000 was because it was one of the first large 4K sets. I personally wouldn't even pay $5,000 for one now.

I remember reading one of the first 70" HD sets...

It's quite comical that the listed website is speculating a $9999 price tag for the 120". The M series 80" is $4000 but it is a mass produced item. The 120" R series will not be. More than one...

I'm actually kind of surprised by these responses. Our local Best Buy had an Avatar Blu Ray disk playing on the Samsung curved 8550 65" for a few weeks. I had to ask to make sure it wasn't just a...

lmao @ spending more than $5000 on anything other than FALD. Samsung can keep their edge lit junk. I've seen it their 4K sets in person and was highly unimpressed.

Considering Samsung's 110" is over twice that price, 50K would be an amazing accomplishment on Vizio's part.

I have never owned a Vizio. However, the Vizio P series 4K demo absolutely blew away the Samsung and LG edge lit crap that was being displayed. Granted it was a uncompressed demo but on PQ alone,...

I see people talking about the logistics of getting the 120" around corners or up stairs. This is not a set you will be able to run down to Best Buy and pick up. It is still my understanding that...

I would love to be proved wrong, but I think the price might actually be above $70,000. Perhaps MUCH higher than 70K. Vizio does a great job on giving us bang for you buck. However, I just see no...

lol how long before one of these TV's uses its Skype feature to call the police because it catches you smoking pot.

Oh I agree, and THX is a good example. I don't care for that at all. And my apologies if my comments came off as critical of those who like curved. That was not my intention. My frustration is...

I don't know if it's anything more than speculation at this point. I would think that would put 4K blu ray dead in the water if true. Not many are going to run out and buy a newer 4K set because...

I really want to see how the P series upscales but the ones on the showroom are all in demo mode with no way to hook up another source. The only 4K set I've seen upscale is the Samsung 65" 9000...

I read that the upcoming UHD bluray players in December will require 18gps. If all the sets up till now could not play 4K discs because of that, to me that would make UHD disks dead in the water.

The only "correct" time to buy a high end 4K set is when plenty of 4K source material is available, the standards have been established, mass production has brought the price down, and there are no...
