Great, now there is some concrete evidence of the FABU/amazing/incredible Vizio R-Series which was initially showcased almost 2 years but the question persists in my mind : how many people are going to pay $6k for a 65" UHDTV from Vizio (let alone $130K for a 120" panel) sold by "select" dealers and needing specific ordering contacts and delivery arrangements when comparable sets by Samsung and Sony are now being sold for considerably less ?
Yeah, i realize the promise of those 384 dimming zones but are they worth so much more than sets by Sony/Samsung that have less than 200 dimming zones and yet perform admirably according to test reports ?
In my book, it is stupid enough to release a "line" offering only one size (the 120" set being essentially a proof-of-concept item designed exclusively for the ubber-rich) but asking $6K msrp for a 65" set, considered "stratospheric" in today's UHDTV market, is it even more "stupider".
Personally, i think the only way for Vizio to "calm the publicity waters", so to speak, would be for the company to release immediately its plans for a 2016 P-Series offering most of the capabilities of the R-Series at a lower cost and in several different sizes, 55", 60", 65", 70", 75", 80"...
Meanwhile, watch out Vizio, here comes HiSense, TCL, Amtran, etc. The Chinese are knocking at your front door !
