Summary: This television is definitely a bang for your buck. You have to go into this with a mindset that it is going to be strong and possibly a little weak in some areas. Channels on HD and streaming services such as Netflix looks absolutely amazing; I was totally floored with the quality of the picture. Regular channels look very decent; understand that there is no up-scaling on this TV. Higher end sets have processing that up-scales regular channels a bit.
Summary: Been using it for about a year....no major issues.... I do notice that every once in a while the tv will freeze when using the "smart" apps. not really sure why it happens, but i just unplug and then plug it back into the wall.. Not sure if there is a reset button that would make things easier....overall I am happy with the picture and quality of the tv.
Summary: After I had the Vizio 65 in. TV for a few days, I noticed that the volume would not come back on when I muted the TV to answer the phone or answer the door. I tried to un-mute the TV but seemed that I could not get the sound to come back on that channel. I scrolled through a few channels until I found a channel with sound and the went back to the "Silent" channel and there would be sound.....I first thought that the problem might be with the Cable Remote.
Summary: This Tv is garbage. It has serious software issues identified by both Vizio, SquareTrade and other third party warranty firms. I would avoid. Also, the smart features are not reliable and this model is not compatible with sonos or other products that use file sharing of any kind.
Summary: First on had a big light oval in the center. Amazon came and replaced it, sent 2 Guys as it was on the wall. New one is very good, speakers are not too good, bought Onkyo LS310, sounds much better. Setup picture with online review numbers.
Summary: I got this 65" TV on black Friday 2013, did not buy extended warranty. After 10 months it had a technical problem Vizio sent a technician to my home and the problem was fixed without any additional cost. The TV is great and I love the easy connectivity with the internet, it comes with pre-loaded useful applications and you can easily add new ones. It connects and streams video perfectly well. Image quality is as good as I hoped for.
Summary: Has been great so far. Picture is fine. It takes about 5-10 seconds for the tv to turn on and then about 30 seconds for the apps to begin working. The apps are not lightning fast but acceptable. Have used netflix and amazon prime tv apps and they work fine. The first minute can be non-hd as it buffers (but that is with any type of streaming, Those who watch netflix on your computer know) but then it becomes ultra clear.
