Visio P502ui-B1E 50" 4K TV for less than $1000

Visio P502ui-B1E is out. Supposedly it has 4K 60 Hz on at least one input but that info is hard to uncover. Anybody else tempted to get one?

Had to review the manual to see if it had hdmi 2.0. It shows in the manual that one hdmi is 4k at 60 Hz, the other hdmi slots are 1.4 so will be maxed at 30 Hz. Wish they would just specify, but I know how marketing goes, especially with tv's. I have 60 inch vizio for a couple years and have been happy with it. Seems a pretty good price point and a nice tv, but not currently looking for a new tv. Probably be a couple years until I venture into the 4k market. I've only heard bad things from some of the lower priced 4k tv's out there.

Pictures on amazon are good enough to see the side and bottom inputs.

1x HDMI 2.0 (4K 60 Hz)
4 x HDMI 1.4 (4K 30 Hz)

If you're the kind of person that keeps a TV for a many years, I would wait for models where the ports are all 2.0. That's what I think I will do.

I think I could deal with the single port by getting a receiver or a switcher. I think the bigger roadblock is that even haswell integrated video doesn't have hdmi 2.0 yet is a bigger obstacle unless of course your using a new NVidia 900 series video card.
