Summary: I ordered this from Amazon Warehouse deals, and it arrived right on time. Plus. I turned it on, and the screen is crystal clear and nicely bright. Plus. The setup process is super simple, and it connected to my wireless network with no effort at all. Plus. The WRONG remote was in the box and did not activate in the setup process. BAD!!! So far I love the tv and when I used Vizio's Chat support the tech was VERY helpful.
Summary: The first unit that arrived was damaged in shipping. The second unit came in and setup fine, but soon exhibited vertical narrow banding of all colors that curtained the picture behind it. Vizio customer service was exemplary in its speed and handling of the issue. We reset the TV and all seemed fine for a day or two. I noticed the banding came back again when using our new Xbox, which would go away when I turned off - turned on the HDTV.
Good Features but lacking of Full Array LED and has poor black level

Summary: I bought this unit about a month ago and have since sold it for about the same price I was able to purchase it for. Picture Quality... I've had experience with numerous brands such as the Sony nx810 and the Samsung D6000 series and this one by far has the worst black level and overall worst picture quality. The blacks generally are tinged slightly blue and do not go near the depth that they should with the local dimming capabilities.
