They replace broken products with worst ones they know will have issues
21 June 2015
Summary: Update: After calling Vizio one last time to tell them about finding the bulletin online they are re sending me a new TV. Thanks Vizio!! I bought this TV in January of 2014. The first one had issues and was replaced with a refurbished TV in December of 2014. The new replacement TV dies on June 2015.
Summary: HDMI PROBLEMS Sometimes on HDMI 1 I get picture with no audio.. I noticed the picture falling out on the HDMI 1 . I changed HDMI cables (used both with no problems for years) same problem. The picture will go black for less than a second, come back, black out and run good for a while then repeat.
Pros: Nice Picture Good Price
Cons: More glare than I read in review, more annoyng than on my glossy plasma Scratches/gouge across back of set, no big deal Refurb lacks quality control - 2 of the HDMI ports are flaky and PC input and RGB inputs wired in reverse

Summary: This tv is horrible. It was good for the first year and then things started going back. Right after the one year mark, the lights in the bottom left corner went dark so we dealt with a dark spot on the screen. Today the entire tv went out and after reading reviews, it is a common problem.
Summary: Spend the extra money and buy new with a full warranty.
Pros: Large screen with a great picture.
Cons: Unfortunately, this TV has only lasted for five months and the backlighting has died. Repair will cost more than replacement. I don't know if it was repaired previous to my buying it or if it was simply overstock as NewEgg does not disclose.
The product was good while it lasted the problem is the fact it ...

Summary: Purchased on August 16th 2013....deceased on 23 November 2014. 1 year and 3 months inexcusable for the price. Customer service took 4 attempts to get someone, then the games begin. Unplug it, let it sit for 15 seconds. Re-plug it in and hold the manual power button on the side.
Summary: These are terrible TVs. I have a number of people I do TV service for and everyone of these I know of has failed in the first 1 1/2 years. The display either develops white spots or goes black. When it goes black you still have audio and a backlight on in the display just no picture.
Summary: will never buy another vizio... first went bad in 6 months.... second one made it through the 1 year warranty and then went out... customer service said sorry, you pay to get it fixed... sitting on the side of the road waiting on the garbage man to pick it up...sure hope this helps, mike in la
Summary: Please save yourself a big headache and do NOT buy this TV. My first set developed the white notorious white spots, and then the second *refurbished* replacement burned out a bottom LED in about 30 minutes. The third TV I received *brand new* from Vizio also developed the white spots.
Summary: I brought this TV in April 2013 for $1700.00 and it just blew. I called Vizio and they stated that the unit cannot be fixed and had the audacity to offer me a 55 inch TV for $900.00 as a replacement.
Summary: This has been a nightmare. I bought this TV extremely excited, got it, and it had tons of white pixels on the screen. Disheartened, I went through tons of back and forth with NewEgg and their very ill-mannered third party warranty people.
Pros: Big/cheap/nice picture (if it wasn't fatally flawed and riddled with imperfections such as weird blotches and hot pixels).
Cons: I've had two of these sets and both have had countless hot (white) pixels that will not go away, but only grow with time. My second set not only had more hot pixels than the first, it had two giant oblong blackish/greyish blotches on the screen.
