    I recently picked up the new Vizio 48" 4k home theater display (E48U-D0) at Best Buy to use with my Apple TV and Xbox One.

    About a week later I noticed that Target had a very similar model (E48-D0) for about $120 less.

    Despite the minor differences between the models, Best Buy did the price match for me. Just saw it come through on my statement. Figured I'd pass it along if anyone else is in the market for a new TV/ display.

    Hmm, Target must have clarified the listing then, a screenshot I took when I submitted the claim definitely shows it was listed as 4K. Makes sense with the major price difference though.

    Because he's gonna plug is not 4K Apple TV into it?

    I'm baffled as well.

    In my experience vizio is crap. I bought a 50" M model in Jan, 2015 (on sale $500). In May it started flickering and died. Called vizio and the said the "board" probably went out, they sent a tech out 2 weeks later, wife was home, he fixed it, left, wife calls 30 minutes after he left and the tv is dead. I went back to best buy and told the manager about my problem and he said bring it back and he would give me credit toward another tv. So like a dumb ass I bought the newer 4k 50" M model ($250 more, so up to $750 now). This one lasted 6 months and the same thing happened, called vizio and they filed a report, I NEVER heard back from them. After a few days I called vizio back and talked to a higher up support person, he did not feel my frustration so we had some words, no profanity was used, haha. At this point I just looked at this as a $750 stupid tax, several friends warned me. So after a few more days I went back to best buy and asked the store manager for a few minutes of his time. He rememberd me from the first return, I told him what was going on with the second tv. He blew my mind and said bring it back and would do a store credit again. So, this time I went with a Sony XBR X850C 4k 55". This one cost another $300. So now I have a tv that is diamonds. I have been a customer of Best Buy since they started years ago and always will be. vizio, never again, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

    p.s. they use the cheapest parts from many different companies and piece their stuff together in batches. If you study their model #'s you will see this. They are the lowest of low end tv's.
