Are there owner's that do not have the white spots?

Do we know is Sharp LEDs have the same issue?

I wanted to get this TV but the spots are a deal breaker.

I'm sure there are owners who don't see them. But I believe every panel has them. My guess is I have seen over 20 of these TVs including my own, friends' and those in stores and every single one has the problem. And yes, the same problem is reported on 70" Sharps.

I would steer clear. Maybe look at the 2014 models instead as the 70" E was just released,

Well I managed to get in touch with Manna, they kept emailing me on Sunday about cancelled deliveries for the following Monday. I got them to agree to delivery 8-12 this Monday, only to have them change it to 3-7 when they called on Friday, and tell me it would never be able to be any other time or day of the week. I changed my schedule for them with a crazy split day, and then they called to say I needed to be home earlier because they were ahead of schedule.

All in all it was a crazy hellish process. I got the new tv and it looked fine, but I cleaned the screen off from all the smudges it had when I got home, and looked all over the screen again and it has a few bright spots. They are very light and not as obvious as my other set or as numerous, but it is always any issues that gets worse with time, so I suspect it will become more obvious over the next few weeks. Does anyone know if I should let vizio know of the issue now and try to replace again, or just wait for it to be more obvious? I'm not even sure I can capture it on camera to be honest.

Greetings everyone, I've been following this thread since last year when I decided to bite the bullet and buy this set on sale close to black friday from Sams Club online (missed the walmart sale). The integrity of my screen has not deviated since I bought it, however there are a several noticable imperfections that are only apparent when a camera scrolls across a lighter background like a sky. A still image will show them, but it's not nearly as obvious.

Since people have had issues returning I would like to get recommendations. Primary imperfection is a large dark triangle at the top of the screen. When viewed on video these appear as if the screen has dirt/dust obscuring parts of the viewing area. A second small imperfection is in the bottom left corner as a light colored oval blob. There are other lines and imperfections across the screen that are seen in camera panning. Is there anyway to get a full refund? Should I get an extended warranty at this late date? Please see attached image.
