Purchased the 55" version of this TV a few weeks ago for my son and received the 70" version a few days ago for my man-cave. Being a Samsung fan, I was very skeptical about jumping into the Vizio brand of TV's. I just couldn't justify the heavy price increase per inch between the Samsung over these new M-series TVs so I decided to take the plunge. I replaced an aging Samsung 50" plasma I purchased in 2005 with the 70" M-series and the difference is unbelievable. I am completely impressed with how far Vizio has come with its TV line.

I got very lucky on both sets as both panels (55" and 70") are good to go without serious blemishes or imperfections. The 70" as indicated by others here on Amazon and other forums, exhibits the least amount of panel flaws. I have very minimal (and I mean minimal) light bleed and only on very bright images. It is hardly noticeable on either TV and you have to force yourself to even look for it. Trust me, I'm pretty OCD about these kind of things and it doesn't bother me in the slightest. If I bothered to lower the backlight a little it would completely go away entirely, but I like a bright screen and since it's almost invisible to detect anyway, I just left the backlight on high.

It's not a major problem, but worth noting, as other reviewers have mentioned, you need to point the Vizio remote at the bottom left corner of your TV for it to pick up. The remote on the 70" is more responsive than the 55" but not by much. I did find a good work-around for this however. I have Verizon FIOS and simply programed the Verizon remote to handle most of the basic Vizio commands. For those with these new M-series TVs and FIOS, simply press the "ok" and 0 buttons at the same time on the Verizon remote and then enter code 424.

Amazing TV, well worth the money and wait times. Let me put this in context, I have a $20k (equipment only) home theater room and the last panel I purchased was a Hitachi 55" plasma back 10 years ago for my family room. I use a Sony 1080p projector in my theater and needed a 70" for my game room. Looked around but did not want to invest in a non-4k set right now given that I want to replace my plasma with a 4k soon.

Decided to get a good budget set and read allot about the VIZIO. It did not disappoint. The picture is simply awesome. Looks way better than my plasma. Now seriously considering replacing my plasma with the P-Series when it's released.

Last thought, went to a retailer in town and be careful, they make these budget sets look bad on display to steer customers towards more expensive brands. Based on reading reviews I could not believe that a display with awesome reviews from CNET and others could look that bad in the store.

The TV does have some controller issues and like other reviews said you also can't force 3d on hdmi... During the summer they will release a firmware update for the tv to turn on the direct Wi Fi for the controller.. There is also a firmware update now for the TV that will fix hdmi issue.. Here are the steps to manually update from version 1.02.926P90 to V1.04.955M90..

Also, After a lengthy chat with specific questions asked of "Stewie", I have supposedly been given the directions to induce a firmware update:

1) Go to System > System Information.
2) Scroll down to under UTV. Look for "REG". Make sure this says "Yes".
3) Go to Reset & Admin > Service Check - Click Yes.
4) Turn off the TV and turn it back on.

Update should be sent within 24 hours if it is available. Update is only downloaded while TV is powered off, but plugged in. Ethernet or wireless does not matter.

We just bought the 70" model of this television for fathers day and couldn't be happier! I have one other vizio, a 50" I have had for about 10 years. I did have a problem with that TV where the sound card went out and you can't get sound from the TV itself, but we've always used surround sound. The new TV however I have been checking reviews, researching and have viewed at several stores. It's funny because at some stores like sams club and costco where there is not a sales person making money on the sale the picture was beautiful and it other stores that are marketed towards selling the more expensive TVs the picture looked less that bad, especially when setting next to the $5000+ models. I ended up purchasing the tv from Best Buy (for price, not because of the quality of the picture at the store) after getting it home and hooking it up I couldn't be more happy with my decision. I know there is a complaint about the remote, but I haven't had any problems. My TV is mounted on the wall and it is hooked to our cable box, which i would guess most people have. So the remote doesn't get used often, but haven't noticed problems when I have used it. We have rented movies off of Netflix and the cable box in 3d and there was no lag time and the picture quality is amazing!! We watched the movie epic and the colors and scenery in 3d were terrific, better than the theater! The cable channels also are beautiful, especially in hd. And again we have it hooked to a surround sound for full effect! Though the sound wasn't bad on the TV. I would recommend this TV to anyone!
