Got the set today. It is beautiful! I used the settings posted earlier in this thread by Kev4Bama and it really looks terrific so far. Smooth Motion is off and the NBA game I am watching now has been clean with almost no motion blur. This TV is a very good choice for sports watchers.
I have played about an hour of Skyrim on XBox 360. I switched on the Game Mode just to see what type of effect it would have. No opinion there but I'll experiment more. There was NO lag at all between control input and player actions. I should note I have an older 360 using component cables but not sure if that has any impact.
I am not experiencing any audio sync issues from any tested source thus far. I have the TV speakers disabled and am running HDMI through my Onkyo receiver for sound.
Viewing distance is about 12' from the TV. My viewing angle is fairly straight on but I do have one love seat that sits to the side. It washes some as you move to a more extreme viewing angle but I still think it looks fine.
I have the Wi-FI hooked up and Amazon Prime. Will get that going and post some thoughts.
The stand is small but solid. The footprint is probably not quite big enough for the size of the set but, for the most part, it's fine.The bezel and design are simple but elegant.
One note- all the video inputs are on the left side (facing the set) for this TV. I had all my consoles and Blu Ray on its own center to the right of the TV and found most of my cables were to short to reach. Required a complete disconnect of all and moved everything to the left side of the Vizio to accommodate. MAJOR pain in the rear. But it was that or buy longer HDMI cables.
