[Costco] 2019 Vizio Quantum P659-G1 65-in

It looks like Costco is starting to carry the 2019 Vizio line up. The price is very close to the PQ65.

That's a hell of an introductory price for the 2019 Series Vizio QLED 65" panel. They either dropped prices massively in this cycle or this is a lower model QLED.

I need more information before affirmatively judging.

UPDATE

This review is glowing:

It seems consumers are going to enjoy this Black Friday 2019, if these are the starting prices.

Yes this is the 2018 P series equivalent. The PQX is flagship that will probably be in $3000-$4500 range.

How is this version different from the 2018 PQ65 TV?

I remember the number of local dimming zones is similar, same quantum color but not as bright as the 2018 PQ.

I just pulled the trigger on the PQ65. Should I regret that decision>?

Remember that the 2019 Quantum is meant to replace the 2018 P-Series, NOT the 2018 Quantum. 2019 Quantum X is replacing the 2018 Quantum.

65" 2018 Quantum: 2340 nits, 192 dimming zones
65" 2019 Quantum: 1100 nits, 200 dimming zones

Considering the 2019 P costs more than the 2018 PQ, you'd be insane to pick the 2019 model, when you can get a model that offers more than double the brightness for less.

While information is lacking, remember this is basically the P series for 2019 not PQ series despite the name. There is a Quantum X this year as the new PQ replacement. Basically the starter price is actually pretty close to where P65 started out last year (slightly cheaper but there were some issues with P65 as well and model did NOT gain much market share for vizio).

Deal wise, this is currently cold because Vizio PQ65 is a superior TV on paper. Information on this is still lacking since its brand new but its suppose to replace P65 and all paper specs suggest its inferior to PQ65 in general. There might be something it does better than PQ65 but still given PQ65 is currently cheaper, there is really no reason to get this.

It seems this is a lower model QLED in that case. On point clarification, thanks.

At these starting prices, you are better off getting an OLED

I wouldn't blanket statement that - OLED burn in/out is a real thing.

Not a matter of if, just when the pixels deteriorate.
