Still waiting for the Firmware Upgrade (It's been a month)

Summary: I would not buy this set if you intend to use the apps to watch streaming services like Netflix. If you do, I would make sure it ships with the current firmware (3.X), because Vizio is having issues with pushing the automatic updates to its customers and from what I have read Netflix doesn't work without 3.X. Vizio's customer service has been no help. They apologize and know about the issue, but they said you have to wait for the set to update.
Summary: Would not stream netflix. Vizio techs insisted there was nothing wrong with it. I spent fifteen hours on phone with Netflix, Vizio and my ISP. No resolution. So I returned it and tried a replacement. No good..it didn't work, either. A huge waste of my time and effort. Vizio service was dismal. Don't buy this TV. Many others have experienced same problem.
Summary: Ok I have owned a couple Vizio sets and have one now that is getting up there in years and has been a great set.I decided it was time to get another 3D TV and after reading the review at CNET thought this would be a good set.I will start with the negatives and end with the positives.1st and foremost this Set has no option to turn off the Smooth Motion Effect(Soap Opera Effect)and Real Cinema modes.The other Vizio set I own has the option to turn this crap off and...
Summary: After my prior HD TV started having problems with the display, I ordered this because the reviews indicated the picture was good. Compared to the prior HD TV, the picture is great. My wife even enjoys watching football in 3D (e.g. ESPN 3d). The negatives are (when used with DirectTv HR22): infrequent/intermittent video stutter, variable video/audio sync problems, very long power up delay before accepting remote commands.
