    Yes I keep leaning back towards Vizio.
    I may up my price a little.
    I saw a nice M series that is still only $550- $600.

    The P is too expensive for the Bedroom.
    Maybe when my 2015 Vizio 60 dies, I'll look into a P series for the Livingroom.

    I'm leaning towards this one, Plus I can get 10% off and also no Intrest for 12 months.

    I got my P-55 for $779 from Costco.

    I know that you stated that you had some problems with previous Samsungs but this set looks like a real bargain for $500. Plus, it has a tuner which the Vizio does not.

    My 44in* vizio has a nice PQ, even in direct sunlight. Its a standard HDTV but still has a sharp PQ

    Yes, but this TV did get a pretty good review especially for this price point.

    Any easy way to determine which have such? Brands and models vary quickly at my local Costco.

    Of course, when I buy, it probably won't be from Costco.

    We had one for 2 -3 years and the Power Supply gave out, I did some digging and found that some have died after 6 months, I don't rember the model but it was an aquriose.

    Yeah, seems to me 4 HDMI ports should be the minimum. They can't add much to the price, and having to use a switcher sucks.

    I caution that you not let theory and numbers get in the way of personal perception. Whether or not you can actually see the "limitations" is a very important consideration.
    I'm not sure 55" is in your price range if your going to be uppity about having full-blown HDR and WCG performance.

    Pretty much any full-featured TV under $800 is going to be edge lit. FALD is still pretty much rarified air.

    I had a Samsung 55 inch 1080p 3D LED last only 3 years 2012-2015. Dead pixels.

    And 2014-2017 on my 40 inch 1080p LED same thing dead pixels.

    So yes I'm a little sceptical.

    Not true, Vizios are Full Array.
    Even the D series.

    I appreciate everyones input.

    It looks like Vizio ,LG, and even Possibly I may Give Samsung another Go.

    But I have a Feeling I'll end up with Vizio E series maybe the M series, or a Samsung.

    My wife would kill me if I put my Current 60 inch Vizio in my bedroom, and get a New 60+ inch 4k tv.
