Was a great TV for 8 months. No longer will turn on.

Summary: Had the TV for about 8 months. No complaints and worked like a charm. 8 months after hanging it on my wall in my living room, the TV decided not to turn on anymore. Contacted Vizio and tried a couple things but ultimetly never turned back on. Vizio does have a great customer service and I am currently in the process of returning the TV with a full refund.
Summary: Vizio sends firmware updates to their products not fully tested. Then when your device stops functioning they want you to jump through hoops to send in proof of purchase for warranty repair and out of warranty your screwed. Excuse me but I shouldn't have to prove ANYTHING when YOU break my device. Just schedule a repair call. Vizio feels this is OK to do to their consumers.
Summary: I love the picture. I had to augment the sound system with external speakers. I want to add the closed caption but cannot figure out how to make it happen--I follow the directions in the manual but it does not work (yet). It meets my needs fro watching great shows. It turned my loft into a theatre room.
Faulty remote control boards and lousy Internet platform

Summary: Like another reviewer here, I have had ongoing problems with controlling the TV. After 6 months the TV started responding erratically to the remote, then stopped responding at all. Vizio sent out a technician who replaced the motherboard. After a month the problem started again. Vizio sent a replacement "recertified" unit which started doing the same thing after a few weeks.
Summary: This vizio 65 inch tv has a beautiful picture. I use the smart feature to watch amazon's prime movies. The movie loads very fast via the wi-fi connection. I tested the tv speakers and sounds great, Although I have it hooked up to a sony sound bar and sub-woofer that makes it sound even better. the stand that supports the tv is o.k. it does the job, had no problems with it.
Great tv for the price with a shaky pedestal stand.

Summary: The TV functions well with little hassle. Picture is good, but it's not a plasma (still quality HD). The creen is quite alrge so there can be some "splotches" when it goe sto solid black between scenes. The instant Netflix access is very nice. The major issue I have with teh design is teh pedestal stand. It's a design best suited for a 32" tv, not a 65" tv.
