I like that it can be purchased at Costco, since they extend the warrenty one more year, and have a great return/exchange policy. Not to mention cash back
Also, does anyone know if the remote on these will control a BluRay player? Even a none Vizio branded player? I haven't decided on a player yet, but so far reviews of the Vizio brand seem to have a lot of problems playing some discs, both DVD and BRD. With the awesome keyboard these TVs have, I would hate to have to use a second remote to control a player.
First off, Just got my XVT533, and I can say BUY IT NOW!!!! It is freakin' incredible. The Netflix widget is working like a charm via wifi, with no problems at all.
Yes, the remote will work with a BD player. I have it set up to work my Samsung BDP-1500 already.
The VIA functionality, the freakishly good picture quality, the price... Jump on it, man. I am very, very happy with mine. All the research I did proved out, and CNET was dead-on.
