We have many former Vizio P owners now posting in our Oled owners' threads...It seems like the transition from this model to Oled E, B, or C is now the norm

I would love an OLED but can not justify it financially so I'm sticking with this set for the long term. There's been quite a few firmware updates that have boosted the performance in my opinion with the latest finally getting the 720p upscaling to look pretty great, as it was problematic when I first brought it. Our cable hd signal is actually highly watchable now on it and it was a source of frustration for some time for me. The biggest reason I brought this for though was the abilty to watch UHD blu-ray in high dynamic range and it's incredible foor that, even with being slightly less bright than some hdr capable sets.

When my TV and/or tablet is on, it gives off an open Wi-Fi signal. Not sure how this is happening.

Alright guys, I have to say -

I am AMAZINGLY impressed with this television.

What it's giving me for $1550 (Costco sale in February) is nothing short of incredible. I didn't know LCDs could give me black levels like this! (My previous recent experience is with an edgelit JS8500) I was astonished by how good the black levels are, the color, and everything.

It seems like I won the panel lottery with this P65 too, I had no banding or any visible discoloration on the screen.

I only intended to buy it as a stopgap until the A1E arrives, and to test it out for my friend who wants a P75, but I'm wondering about keeping it now and finally replacing my old Kuro as a 2nd TV. Sure, it can't do the absolute black & amazing view angles that my LG B6 had, but that TV cost twice as much.

And I've only spent one night with it!

Glad you're enjoying it! While it's currently my TV for my PS4 and some occasional 4K streaming, it will be pressed into duty more once 4K via DirecTV becomes more prevalent.

It looks pretty dang good on UHD blu-rays. While it's not as good as my ol' B6 in terms of the usual stuff, blacks, color spectrum, contrast - it's definitely superior in motion processing and that's why I'm enjoying it so much right now.

Me too(P75). 2018 will be an improved version. I wonder if the cast app will be patched for the 2016 models?

It will, but that's fine by me, have a TV that's 2 years future-proofed is unheard of in today's day and age!

I dunno, but according to that article, the software will continue to be updated.

Looks like the new 3.2.13.3 firmware is officially out in the wild now.

Also, for those of you with a P50 that received the new firmware, I suggest you open up an online chat session with Vizio and procure your FREE new XRT135 remote to go along with it! See my chat transcript below and follow it when you do so!

New XRT135 remote (coming soon):



New XRT135 remote vs. the current/old remote:



Request received: I own the 2016 version of the P50, but after the most recent firmware installed (3.2.13.3), I don't have access to theon-screen menus. I was told to contact Vizio support to see about getting the new XRT135 remote.

Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:17:48 PM): Here at VIZIO we pride ourselves in providing best in class U.S. based support. Have you contacted VIZIO in the past?
Me (6/6/2017, 3:18:51 PM): Perhaps? I honestly can't remember
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:19:28 PM): Hi there. I see you have questions regarding the update. Before we get started, could you please provide your serial number and the name of the store you bought it from, please?
Me (6/6/2017, 3:19:53 PM): Serial Number = XXXXXXXXXXX
Me (6/6/2017, 3:20:00 PM): Store = Costco
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:20:40 PM): Thank you.
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:21:27 PM): I will submit the request for the full remote. However at this time we do not have a ETA for the stock of the remote. To complete the request I will need the physical address where the TV is located.
Me (6/6/2017, 3:22:22 PM): Excellent, thanks so much!
Me (6/6/2017, 3:22:35 PM): The physical address of the TV is:
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:22:36 PM): You are very welcome
Me (6/6/2017, 3:22:43 PM): XXXXXXXXXXX
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:23:03 PM): Thank you.
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:23:08 PM): Is the number XXXXXXXXXXX
Me (6/6/2017, 3:23:17 PM): Yes it is
Chaeli (6/6/2017, 3:24:41 PM): Thank you. I have submitted the request for the full remote.

Thanks for the heads up. I have the 2016 P65 and just had pretty much the same chat session. They told me they had no timeframe on when I would receive the remote, but at least with my Harmony One I was able to program all the important buttons for navigating menus until it arrives.

I like the tablet ok but it's always bugged me that I had to rely on another device to adjust settings on my TV.

Yep, same here especially having to deal with yet another electronic device versus a piece of hardware.

For sure. This was my one gripe about this TV and I'm really glad to see they changed it. I'm not someone who can/will upgrade a TV every couple of years so I never liked the idea of my TV's menus/setting being tied to a tablet that will soon be obsolete. It says a lot to me that they listened to customer feedback on this issue.
