Found a tiny bit of clouding/uneven brightness on my 55" in one spot. Only noticeable in solid colors -- a bit of the DSE, I reckon. Spoke with some Vizio's reps and they asked me to upload some pictures and concluded it's within spec and a limitation of the technology. Have to say I was impressed with their CSRs. US based, and it shows.
Here's a photo of the bright spot...it's not a reflection (everything else is -- I actually increased illumination in the room to make it less bothersome...)
Otherwise, it's pretty solid...much better than my Sammy from 2 years back. I'm mostly a plasma purist, but my 19 year old burned my Panny in beyond repair and I can't go through that emotional trauma again...
Overall, I think it's a keeper...but would welcome other thoughts.Edited by nickfro - 8/5/13 at 5:18pm
