Hey everyone. I am looking to pull the trigger on the VIZIO M701d-A3R. Costco has the TV for $2099.99 which seems like a very good deal based on all the positive reviews, quality and size. Also did anyone just walk into Costco and the TV was in stock? Most places never stock big TVs. Plan to head there in a few hours when they open.
I will do a decent amount of gaming and I'm curious on the input lag. I can't seem to find any results. I did however see that if the TV is not in game mode imput lag is pretty bad (Obviously).
I got mine at Costco last Saturday. It was my 2nd trip there, the 1st trip I couldn't find anyone with 3D glasses. On Saturday, there was someone with the glasses, 3D looked pretty cool, but we'll probably never use it as my wife is blind in one eye.
Well, they had it in stock (Sterling, VA). I told the sales guy it wouldn't fit in my Lexus RX. He said if I had a roof rack it could go up there because it was packaged so well it could be laid flat for my short trip home. I had brought some good straps and we put it up there and I secured it. Just drove very carefully on the way home.
Set it up Sunday morning and it looked like $hit...DOH! The red connector of the component cable wasn't seated. Fixed it and all was good. Did the Ursa adjustments this morning and it looks great. I do have it in game mode with all picture "enhancements" turned off except for film mode which is set to auto. I can't speak to lag as I don't do gaming on it.
The Costco deal is very good. They have a 90 day return policy, extend the warranty out to two years, and sell the SquareTrade warranty which adds another 3 years for $99.
VERY pleased so far. I think this is a keeper, I have high hopes it will be great for at least 5 years. I think it would be hard to find a 70" at a better value.
