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. We have only had this tv since July 2013 and for the price, it should have lasted a lot longer!
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. Disconnect the cable box, re-connect the cable box. Plug your cable box into another device. Unplug the tv and use a different outlet is there a light you can see from in the back....
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..
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. I have spoken directly to Vizio and they do not offer a new display to purchase and won't cover the problem after the year warranty. DO NOT BUY!!!
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. The representative stated that if the black light on the rear of this model goes it cost more to repair than replace. What a joke, I have 2 Sony TVs 1 60 and another 46 that were brought in 2010 and 2011 respectively that are still going strong.
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. NewEgg support was always great though, although it took quite a bit of back and forth to get things going. Anyways I finally got the giant TV returned and I got my second set today.
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.
Summary: Around after year I am seeing lot of white spots or dead zones appearing on the bottom part of the screen. Initially was visible only when the screen displayed certain dark colors but now its becoming very apparent. I would recommend people NOT to buy vizio coz there is a reason why they have priced this TV so low. You might save few hundreds of dollars but what good does a 70" with white spots do if you watch TV a lot.
Summary: Great, great TV. Best I've ever owned. Everyone who sees it remarks on the quality and size of the picture. Great remote with keyboard on reverse side. Apps are great, but Netflix looks better on my BluRay player.... Overall would highly recommend this TV. For the price I paid was not a bargain- was a STEAL! Love it! Easy to program the TV to exactly how you like it. Built in Wi-Fi took seconds to connect. Remote wants to take over all my devices.
