Product Review (submitted on January 22, 2012):
We bought our 65" before Christmans through Walmart online. Was delivered first week of January.
First impression.....WOW!!!....HUGE!!!....WHAT A PICTURE!!!!!....FANTASTIC!!!!
Pervious to this purchase we had a 61" Magnavox rear projection so going to this 65" screen wasn't overwelming in sive, but the picture quality is outstanding.
Now the review....after owning this TV for a few weeks we are impressed with the picture clarity. HD programming plays very well. We don't see the problems others seem to see. well, the refective screen is a bit annoying. The streaming video from NetFlix plays great. We bought a Vizio wireless router for our wireless network at home. Seems to be perfectly paired with the TV. So far we have only played two 3D movies and they both were wonderful. Excellent picture. For audio we had previously purchased a VIZIO sound bar for the rear speakers. While the SRS audio is not 5.1 quality it palys very well. All I need now is a sub woofer.
Now for the worried part.....over the last couple days we experienced a problem with the TV. As we were watching the lower 1/3 of the screen suddenly had wide horizontal stripes. We were watching a blu-ray DVD and I thought something happened to the player but the wife said it happend before with NetFlix. Tried shutting the TV down and got no response. Then the TV shut itself down and the VIZIO name on the front TV frame began flashing. Remote control had no effect. Then the TV restarted itself and was working normally. Hmmm.........we'll see.
