Maybe some of the people that purchased this set will begin to receive the "Your TCL has Shipped!" email from Amazon.
The reality is that there is a chasm between the shipping narrative of Amazon and TCL, and no one is sure why that is, unless I missed something. We will soon find out who is correct, and I hope that it is TCL.
I have already delayed my TV purchase by a month, and may have to wait another six months, or so, if I decide that the the 65"TCL P is worth it AND I can convince my wife to wait. I have so far convinced her to put off watching a lot of movies in anticipation of HDR-DV, WCG and Atmos/DTS-X, but her patience is growing thin and she wants me to get 'er done! The problem for me is that we have a budget, and if I go with the more expensive Vizios, then I have to wait on elevation speakers until next year. To add insult to injury the picture may not measure up to the TCL according to the initial testing and public impressions. (and, of course, there is the ROKU streaming platform that will make a happy wife - happy life for me)
The rubber will meet the road when the set gets out into the wild, and we begin to get some feedback from owners. The test results certainly give one hope that it will be a successful product, but real world experience is sometimes different from initial impressions as we all know.
That being said, and being the eternal optimist, I would have ordered the 55" sight unseen, but it is too small for my requirements.
I guess the upside is that now I can wait for the Rtings review of the Vizio M scheduled for mid-June. Not sure when CNET will get around to reviewing it.
