Just found the infamous white spots on my recently replaced 701 (replaced in July, initial E701 had the same spots). Pissed me off, this set was great as far as flashlighting & dirty screen. My 1 year is up in February so I guess I'll be calling Vizio again.
I do have a 4 year Square Trade warranty on it, do they also cover these for the white spots? It may be worth waiting for that to take effect & hopefully it will max out & they will invoke the refund of cost clause which I can apply towards an M series 70".
