again

Vizio has informed me they are going to send out a new, not recertified set. Same model, not the 2014 model.

Awaiting a service appointment.

She said there has been no known bulletins on the bright spots problem!
She wouldn't even let me swap to the E700i-B3 anyway, she said it is a different "sub-model." They will give me a refund though, after four units swapped. Debating whether to write off the money spent on the mounting and to spend more to mount another set, ~$500 total.
I sure hope they aren't the same panels, think about the sales that Vizio will lose out on from people looking at this thread! My warranty is up in Feb. so I've got time to wait and see... except that I have to deal with a poor set all through football season!

My warranty is out, and I have the spots again. Anyone have experience with getting a replacement set mid-way though the warranty, then that set getting spots and having Vizio do something?

Since it isn't visible yet from the couch (large room) - I suspect I am going to be holding on to it until it gets really bad, and then buying another NON-VIZIO set.

If it helps you sleep, you can still buy a Square Trade warranty through Vizio. You must apply through Vizio's site, if you go directly to Square Trade they will tell you that it has to be purchased within 30 days of buying the tv.
