[Costco] HOT -Vizio M65-E0 65-in $1199 delivered

Seems like this is cheaper online than BF. I believe the $1199 price was warehouse only. Good deal with delivery.

I was so close to grabbing this until I found out it has one HDR Hdmi port with arc. I have a very expensive receiver that doesn't do HDR passthrough so I will have to plug things like my PS4 into the TV and ARC it back to me receiver. WIth that 1 HDMI port limitation its a no go for me. I wish it wasn't the case because I can't imagine any of the competing tv's being min $800 dollars better than this.

I suppose, but the one IN source for HDR without a receiver is still extremely limiting.

I had a P65 I returned, and a Sony x900e I received damaged, both have inly one hdmi port with arc.... So unsure you'll find a tv with more than one arc port.

I actually have never heard of any TVs that have more than one HDMI port with ARC. We're you talking about something other than ARC (Audio Return Channel)?

I'm wondering this... I had a P65, I returned for various reasons, nothing to do with the pictures quality, which was amazing.

My Sony x900e arrived damaged, so I'm in process of returning it. So now I'm left waiting for Sony x900e prices to drop back to black Friday prices.

But if the average person (ie not a videophile) can't tell too much of a difference in hdr picture quality between the m55, P65, and Sony x900e, I'd rather save the money and get this m65 in stores.

Any input? I've read countless reviews online, but I'd like input from soemone who doesn't cycle through like 200 tvs in a year.

The issue isn't 1 ARC, the issue is that only one HDMI IN will perform HDR. In this case the same HDMI has ARC. So if you plug in say your PS4 PRO you can't ARC back to your receiver. Say you have another HDR source component like your HTPC or anything else, you can no longer connect it to the TV with HDR support. In a lot of ways this TV is perfect for someone with a HDR pass-through capable receiver.

IMO there is no way the Sony is almost 50% better.

Would it fit in a Hyundai
sonata with the backseats down?
You really want this tv to be delivered the proper way .laying it flat over a good distance might be risky

The box is 40.1 inches wide when laid flat. Let me know if it fits your Sonata so I don't have to go out in the cold and measure mine. Smiling Face With Open Mouth
