Summary: We wound up looking for a new TV for the front entrance of our studio. Something we can display recent projects on as guests walk in. It was a toss up between this one and the Sharp. We read a few reviews (like this one http://pocinc.net/blog/product-reviews/review-vizio-m701d-a3r-70-inch-1080p-240hz-m-series-3d-smart-led-tv) that really led us into the direction of this over the Sharp so we decided to take the risk.
Summary: This is my 3rd Vizio TV. You can't, in my opinion, get a better TV for the money. I wanted to get this 70in. at Christmas time for my husband. It was a want not a need, so I did not purchase at the time. So glad I waited because eventually the price came down. Glad I didn't hesitate to purchase this dream TV at that point in time because the last I checked there are no more available in this size. This size is perfect for where I needed it to go.
