2020 85 Inch Vizio P Series Quantum X

I will for sure be buying a new TV in the next six months. I'm anxiously awaiting details on the 2020 85 inch Vizio P Series Quantum X. It checks every single box for me. Any thoughts or guesses on how much it will cost? More than $3k?

Excited about this TV also! I am looking for an 85 inch and it needs to have HDMI 2.1 and dolby vision. It comes down to Sony and Vizio for me and the Vizio is really looking great on paper (800 dimming zones and up to 3k nits). Hopefully the new processor fixes some of the banding issues which seemed to be one of the biggest complaints about the 2019 version.

I feel the same way. Thanks for letting me know about the 2019 banding issues, I wasn't aware.

Some of the prices this year will be insane at 85" and even the lower quality options will drive down the high end Vizio PQX. Notably, the 85" from Hisense will be retailing at $1400 which means close to a $999 sale price later. Sure, not the brightest and not FALD, but it should be a very good TV compatred to non-FALDs of 2 years ago with decent local dimming. I would not be shocked to see the Vizio PX 85 hit the $2000 range by Black Friday, but I do not think it can drop much lower than that without them losing money like China is willing to do to capture the market.

Good point! How does it do with streaming content like Netflix and Amazon Prime?

Stop these false claims in every PX thread. The PX has as good upscaling as any other tv for 1080p -> 4k and for majority 720p too.

Hopefully, this is closer in scale to the 2016 p vs the 2018 quantum. I own both and the 2016 wipes the floor in standard content. Besides the quantum dots the 2018 was a step back in every other area. With improvements in processing and hdmi 2.1 I will again take my chances and be an early adapter. I'm looking forward to a 75 or 85 inch quantamX. If prices are extremely low to start that could be an indication of them continuing to offer value only vs quality.

Likely in March or April but I'm not sure about Best Buy. I'm hoping the 85 inch will be less than $2500.

Vizio's flagship always seems to release at a high MSRP initially, then gets some decent discounts after awhile. I seem to recall that the 2019 PQX 75 initially released at something like $3600? Then got down to $1600 by BF and now is back up to $2200.

I would guess that the 2020 PQX 85 will launch at something like $4000, and maybe get down to around $2000 by BF 2020. I would be quite (pleasantly) surprised if it's less than that.

$4,000 for the Vizio P Quantum X 85" seems a logical starting price, seeing how it seems to cover all bases such as dolby vision, hdr10, hdr10 +, HLG, hdmi 2.1 and 792 local dimming zones. This tv will be mine :-)

I absolutely love my 2019 75". Got it for about $1900 just about a month or so ago. Wouldn't trade it for the price. That being said, the 2020 85" will most likely be its replacement when it bottoms out on price.

The 85” needs to come in at $2500 and then get some drops to $1999 to move the units. Vizio lost a lot of ground due to quality and pricing so they need to fix that more than add features. HiSense and TCL are it’s competition, not Samsung and Sony.

Vizio's 1080p upscaling has always been good, 720p not so much. But I've heard they're finally fixing 720p upscaling for 2020.

$2500 would be a miracle. Samsung doesn't have Dolby Vision and Sony doesn't have great gaming features (ironically). TCL is only 60hz and Hinsense's have been historically...bad. This year, Vizio seems to hit the sweet spot. I would still opt for a 77 LG C9 if I could afford a $5k TV.

Hoping it starts around the $4K mark which would be a great price compared to the Sony and Samsung higher end 85inch offerings.

That’ll be too high. Not saying it won’t be there, but it will be slow seller at that price. Lots of Mrs will see the $1500-2500 gap from 75” and put the kibosh on that much of a jump. $1500 gets a pretty decent 75” TV. At $4k, two 75” TVs would be cheaper.

If Vizio had a good reputation, perhaps. They don’t. That’s why the 75” PQX fell off a cliff from their MSRP. It’s “suggested” after all.

If they can nail the price I can see it being a good value

MSRP is just a number, for any manufacturer

I am looking forward to a professional review of the 85 inch (perhaps by imagic) ending with a comparison to the best PQ from any other LED competitors flagship models.

Perfect space opening for Vizio. That said the Sony 85” offerings basically leave me guessing that Vizio will be around $2.5-3k. This year’s 75” is pretty frequently around $1500 new, and it’s selling. Slow mover at the higher prices since intro. Hope they learned.

Someone said in another thread that previous models were released in May-ish, so hopefully we hear something soon. With COVID-19, that could be delayed though...

No one really knows what's delayed and what's not. With Sony and Samsung models hitting shelves, the others probably aren't too far behind. Wouldn't do a lot of good to have them on shelves at this point here in the US. What's probably happening is these are going to ship to consumers almost at the same time as early reviewers.

You may be correct but the review states, "for 2020 we have the Vizio P Series Quantam X"
