I would assume that is why these are on clearance

Decent price, I paid this for the M series.

Whatever you do - get the warranty. Picture quality is very good, next to OLED, but I’ve seen them acting up in store and they’ve got a reputation.

For $60, get the warranty.

Warranty covers the remote. That alone is worth it

Def what he said. With Vizio no longer selling TV's in the Canadian market, better to get that insurance. Vizio will still deal with warranty TV's but I've heard their warranty is terrible rejecting claims

Ditto, been wondering why it’s been impossible to get Vizio. Is there an official news release on this?

Canada is off the list apparently.

America truly is the promised land for electronics.

I have this TV. I had the 2018 model which was garbage ( full of vertical banding) vizio’s customer service was great don’t know why people are saying they sick, they replaced it for me 3 times the final time they sent me the g1 model this one still sucks ( vertical banding, turns on by itself, slow) I called in again and they sent me my full money back and told me to keep the TV, so I got a free TV out of it.

All in all Don’t buy it, buy a different brand.

My guess is its because of Covid and all the delays getting their TV's made, and trying to sell the same TVs in Canadian market requires alot of costly certifications, bi lingual information and re-make boxes and etc. So easier to just leave Canada, and sell in USA where none of that is needed. Which is a shame as I've been wanting to buy a Vizio since 2018 when they had those P65s. But I guess its TCL time

No big loss, but I don't like the wider precedent of losing another competitor.

I frequently buy US product, and some warranty providers are providing third party cross border warranty.

The US may be a little rioty right now, but their deals are still amazing.

Either that or Canadians have little tolerance for crappy quality control.

Bought a P55-F1 almost two years ago and started to see banding. Vizio sent me this TV as they didn't have any P55 anymore. So far, I've been enjoying it and I also have a Costco warranty which starts in a couple of months.

900$ is above average price, and no future product line in Canada meaning very limited support. And... I am out.

This is the 2019 P Series Quantum model. Not Quantum X, meaning second from their top of the line. Very good TV! This was $1500 a few months ago. I lusted after this TV all 2019- how things change!

Costco are definitely clearing these out, as Vizio is stupidly pulling out of the Canadian Market (recent announcement). They have already said they will honour ALL Canadian warranties of their pre-existing products (i.e. 2019 TV models and before):

Get a 5 yr warranty with this thing at Costco and you're set!

I recommend this TV very highly - it's fantastic. It's actually the one I was looking for but couldn't find this deal. Ended up settling on the 2019 M Series Quantum (very similar ratings) instead for a similar price. The P series is a 120 Hz panel.

Very well rated by Rtings:
https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/vizio ... antum-2019

You get Dolby Vision and HDR10. No HDMI 2.1 features (no eARC or VRR for next gen consoles). Very good HDR brightness, quantum dot colour.

This is as good or better to 2019 TCL 6 series and Hisense H8G/H9G. Vizio is a US-based company, though like pretty much everything it's made in China. No silly smooth motion glitches like on TCL TV's where they turn on randomly.

Personally, I think their built in Smartcast is great and I use it for Netflix and Amazon Prime video all the time. They do have a Disney+ app as well.
