Summary: Purchased this directly from amazon.com, it arrived expeditiously and packaged very securely as always. Tge tv was working fine for about a month. Then the HDMI ports started dying off one by one until none of them worked. They all stopped working in the span of about a week. Luckily Vizio honors warranties on all of their products purchased directly from amazon.com ( not to be confused with third party sellers on amazon marketplace).
Edge Lighting or "Flashlighting" is a serious problem.

Summary: There's a ton of reviews discussing this TV's high points so I won't go into them here. The picture is great and all and so is the 3D. "Soap opera" effect is easily avoided if you wish by putting your TV into "game mode" int he settings. The edge lighting problem is a bigger deal than most reviews have let on. I'm sorry it's not 2005 where this is just acceptable and something you have to deal with. In 2013, most LEDs have very minimal edge lighting problems if any.
