On the "backlight bleed" issue. So I am assuming you are referring to what you might see on a notebook LCD where there will be one side or edge lit up more than other area, and visible given certain viewing and media criteria.??
And If so, I just want to ask have you checked your location in front of the screen. I know one of you said that it only appears to occur when something is on the TV other than blank. Cause I noted recently on this LG LCD I am worried about that when the screen is on and black, it would appear to have some whilte looking or more lit up areas. But then finally I got up, or was up manually turning it on and figured out it is just my perspective to the screen and is not noticible when sitting in front.
With that said and I was not planning on going here, but I am starting to get suspicious that an LCD needs a good 240hz processing rate to really show a solid pic. I am about to rant about the LG in another thread.
But as for the subject matter of the thread and the Vizio, I still cant say enought good things about this set. It has no disappointed me yet. And I am a pretty tough critic.

The tv at Costco also had some backlighting problems u could notice if u really take the time to look. No tv is perfect. I would be surprised if nobody has any backlight bleed in the corners. All u have to do is turn off smart dimming set backlight to 50 and you see it. But that's the nature of such a cheap edge lit tv. Shoot even the Samsung Es7000 had it I noticed.
Gaming, 3d, bluray all work just fine. Halo 4 trailer looks unbelievable on this tv. Lorax 3d looked amazing. Compared to my friends Sony 909 full array the Vizio puts up a damn good fight at 1/3rd the price.
Also I prefer semi gloss vs glass of the Sony tvs.
Oh I can't wait for 3DGO! Sensio 3d bluray quality streaming once Vizio releases the app for it.
