I bought this for my husband's birthday, and I hope he doesn't see this post before it arrives next week LOL.
I couldn't find much on this model anywhere either, so I'm glad someone else took the leap. My delivery tracking shows his has an expected delivery date of 7/18.
I bought his from Costco with the $200 off and the free shipping offer (@$3699). I already had the Costco Executive membership, so I'll get the 2% rewards back, and also bought the 3 year $99 Square Trade warranty. So with the 1 year manufacturers warranty and the automatically included free second year by Costco, we will have 5 years of warranty coverage.
We have a Sharp 60" in the den/office ("my" TV lol) that was recently replaced by hhgregg's extended warranty, and I hope the Square Trade warranty works as smoothly as that went if we have any problems with this Vizio..
My husband now watches in the living room on an older 50" but has always wanted a "huge TV". I hope I didn't make a big mistake getting this in a Vizio. I'll have to tell him to be careful what you wish for, you just might get it LOL
Please post your opinion when yours arrives, and I'll have him do the same. And thanks for starting this thread!
