True on new sets. My first ones appeared at 30 days but were not very obvious except within about 5'. They grew much more obvious between 60 and 90 days and I returned the set to Costco. A refurb could have been returned for the white spot problem, like mine, and recycled as Vizio doesn't pay much attention to this and may not identify it as a defect in the refurb process. Fry's only allows 30 days for returns and the Vizio warranty on refurbs is only 90 days, so this should be very closely checked soon and ANY white spots at all, no matter if only small and singular on the white screen test, should be a red flag that the TV is headed for bigger problems. EVERY E701i-A3 demo unit I have seen at Best Buy, Costco, Frys and Sams Club has had numerous white spot defects visible with any light content.
