The lag is not DLP class, and casual buyers might not be dissatisfied. If you are reading this forum you will be.
As far as the lighted logo goes, some have claimed that they become less aware of it or that it is not distracting. BS.
Bottom line: good picture, not for gaming, cheap, have to put electrical tape over the logo if you don't want a headache

Examine your sentence. You are saying that someone who says he isn't distracted by the lighted logo is, in fact, distracted. The "BS" means that YOU are distracted, which I have no argument with because it's obviously true!
Now, I'm not just claiming---I'm asserting---that I quickly got used to the lighted logo and that after a day or two I wasn't distracted in the least---no more so than by the "Exit" signs in a dark movie theater.
Furthermore, would a manufacturer have tested this with people? Of course.
They SHOULD have included a defeat switch for the logo light. On the other hand, for the vast majority of viewers it's no big deal.
On the plus side, Vizio is the ONLY manufacturer to inclue a Lip Sync adjustment in the user menu. Given the choice between an off switch for the logo and a Lip Sync adjustment that is really useful (!) I'll not quibble about the off switch.
My suggestion is to relax about the logo. If that's the main complaint about your set, consider yourself very lucky indeed. Look over some of the complaints about various brands on the forum. A lighted logo is really trivial. You are getting a headache because you are obsessing over it. :-)
