    You are good, I have not seen anything crazy pricewise for a tablet and like you said if there was you would probably be standing outside at 3am. For the price (I also go mine at Costco) I don't think it can be beat and I have had mine for about 2 months now and still loving it.

    Costco has the best price. Not many retailers sell the Vizio. Walmart wants $199. BJ's was also $189 but they no longer have the Vizio.

    You got a good deal. I ordered mine online because the local Costco was sold out in a matter of days. They were about $239 a few months ago. I heard when they first came out they were $299. So I think $189 is a pretty sweet deal. Plus you get the two year warranty from Costco. I think it's a really good tablet. Coby is junk, and velocity can't do as much as the Vizio.

    But why go to Wal-Mart when you get an extra 60-day return policy, no questions asked, via Costco? (even if you order online...)

    I've been contemplating this purchase as well ($189+tax), and think I've managed to convince myself to give it a shot...it will be a gift from Santa for our 9yo son, who's becoming somewhat of a gadget geek like his parents...I'm not entirely convinced he's ready, or needs one, yet, but I figure about a month of me playing with it, and trying to figure out parental control options will help me decide.

    And Walmart does not give it the extra year of warranty like Costco does.

    You may want to check out the Famigo Sandbox app. It's a free app which allows you to childproof your android device.

    I was thinking about installing it tomorrow when my nieces come over. If I do I will report back.

    well, i found a dell streak 7 (wifi) at bb for 157 and purchased one. now i need to return one but not sure which one. on the vizio side, it looks awesome and very well built but with a single core processor and 4 gigs of memory not to mention a bigger and higher resolution screen. On the dell side its 7 inches lower resolution but has a the tegra dual core and 16 gigs and comes with gorilla glass. my son will be watching movies/netflix/games and i'll probably be checking my email and the likes. which one do you think is a better choice?
