1.0 out of 5 stars Can't disable motion smoothing (soap opera affect), November 23, 2012
I wanted to like this TV, but once we started using it we saw that there is NO WAY to disable motion smoothing -- this creates the infamous "soap opera affect". If you are sensitive to this (it makes every video look like a soap opera/sitcom/BBC show), then I'd stay away from this TV. The Vizio website and tech specs site is misleading -- they indicate that the smooth motion is NOT available, but what they mean is you can't disable it. There is some indication that the "KD" model (which is NOT the same as the KDE model here, the KD model has been reviewed favorably elsewhere) might have the motion smoothing setting available to disable.

Some other gripes: the Amazon Prime app bugged out and we had to turn the TV off and back on again to get it working. The 3-d was ok, but there was a bit of "leakage", and the set has some clouding issues on dark scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good!, May 19, 2012
Just got our XV-21 today -- its the first robot vacuum we've ever owned. I was sitting by the door waiting for FedEx like a kid on Christmas, only to be vaguely disappointed when I had to charge it for an hour before I could run it :( At any rate, the first run went well -- it stopped on two occasions: once on a VERY large and thick frayed thread from one of our carpets (the rest of its tasseled edges gave it little problem) -- I just picked the robot up and the tassel unspooled on its own, and placed it right back and started it up again, and the second time when it managed to get a bit lost between a large planter and the base of a spiral staircase-- it stopped because it couldn't navigate -- nudging it a few inches got it back to work. After finishing 3 1/2 of the 4 rooms it had access to, it returned to its base successfully, recharged, then finished up a tiny bit it had missed.

I did try out the spot cleaning (easy as pie) and the barrier (worked fine). The robot has a remarkable ability to get itself extricated from tangles by backing up and raising its chassis up (fairly entertaining to watch). The bee-dance back to its charger is also fun.

The vacuum isn't terribly loud (I've heard complaints that the XV-11 sounds like a jet engine), certainly not compared to a standard upright. It did the entire first floor (not including charging) in about an hour and a half. The charging adds about 1-2 hours to the process, as a heads up.

Happy with the purchase, thus far!
