You cant pick it up from the sams store if ordering online? That option didnt show up so im guessing not.

Well, too late anyway, outa stock online. Glad that made my decision for me cause i really didnt want to wait until next week sometime for my new tv lol. Almost rather sitting out in the cold for 2 hours.

Sounds like the opened it up online at midnight EST (9 PM here). Sounds like they lasted most of an hour, which is longer than I thought they would .

Except (i'm guessing here, cant be positive) wouldnt those who ordered online not only have to wait for shipping, but if for some reason you had to get your unit replaced how would that work? Have to ship it back? Whereas buying in the store you just run into the store, or if you got the squaretrade plan can have them come pick it up.

Comparing it to my UN60D6000SF

I am very eager to get the 60 inch, but I would like to know if this a substantially better set than my Samsung un60d6000sf. I am not all that concerned about 4k, my major concern is getting a tv that doesn't ghost/judder. On my Samsung, watching football is difficult, especially when the ball is in the air, it's just a blur. Basketball as well. I just want a set where this issue is non-existant/minimal, and it seems that the P series will do that. Just looking for some confirmation. Thanks.

I bought my original P55 from Walmart online and returned it to a store. The only problem was that I bought it with Paypal and they had no way to credit my money back through Paypal so they gave me $1500 in cash that I had to take to the bank before I could order my 60" from Best Buy online. (BB had free delivery and would come pick the TV up for a return).

I just got into line at Ptinceton NJ. I'm #10 in line, and last night they had 10 P60s.

Worst case scenario, assuming everyone is here for a P60 each I should still be good

i snagged 1 Vizio P60 online @0040 Eastern,just happened to be looking at it when it changed to available to order online (had been told they were to be available 0100 eastern.glad i was on a little early!)
the p series will soon have an apps upgrade to give at least some 4k material via Ultraflix which is adding 4k material. wondering how long Samsungs exclusive DirecTV 4k/genie deal will last..may have to snag another
unit for that!..my wife is gonna keel meeee!

Received the 70" from Best Buy yesterday. For some reason they could not order at the store, the manager even called around to magnolia stores, district managers etc and could not find one. I was able to order online, delivered on time.

I am just a normal joe. Used Disney WOW to quick calibrate the basics. Everything was pretty much on right out of the box using gama 2.4 and calibrated dark+normal, a few points up and down, contract seemed way too high...

Disabled all "options" except Active LED and Clear Action (no ca bug yet).

While I am new to LCD/LED, I think I noticed motion blur but it hasn't been that much of an issue yet. Though I have only been watching digital media for the most part.

I did play a recorded football game and the white jerseys just seemed tooo white (loss of detail) if you know what I mean. Tweaking contrast did little to improve that so I am assuming it is either Dish signal or hopper DVR.

Happy so far.. but only been a day.

Seems as if we'll be welcoming a number of new owners over the next week. Hopefully everyone remembers to check out page one and the calibration thread

TV is still sitting in the extra room, but I was able to test some Blu-Rays and media from a USB. With the USB media I was able to crash the system which basically rebooted the TV with multiple files. These were all 4k related. There were some other anomalies playing different 4k media types as well, but I was expecting that since media support is limited. There were some 4k that it would play, but wasn't picking up the 4k "flag" so the media was shown in 1080p (still looked amazing). For Blu-Ray I played the 1st scene from GoT Season 1 and it brought a smile to my face. I also watched the 1st few min of Star Wars IV. I was seeing things that before seemed to be muted. Still playing around with the motion settings to find a sweet spot, the most "normal" this far was to have SM off CA off and FM on low. This introduced motion blur but in the scenes I watched it was minimal. For those that hate SOE even when set in LOW SM introduced some of this. I will be moving the TV to its permanent location today so I'll be able to test more over the next few days and weeks. Overall I'd say I am more than happy with the set.

Reporting in from Akron, Ohio
Got to Sams at 5:30 am, allowed into well organized line inside with about 50 people in front of me. (nice because it was 20 degrees)
I was worried I wouldn't get one; they passed out slips for what you were seeking while in line. I scored set number 12, don't think there were too many more. Home, set up (but not calibrated). No dead pixels, great setup. Thank you AVS for all the tips and commentary.
