This is the "D" series FYI. You will get what you pay for on this model. If at all possible, get the E series or even better the M series.

Spot on. This was Vizio's black friday "D" series. If you want a cheap, large TV and don't care about picture and/or build quality then you'll be ok with this. If you want a nice home theater TV with great picture and lasting quality then this isn't for you. It was purposefully manufactured to be cheap.

"we immediately noticed that the edges (3-4" on each side# were white washed #edge bleeding) and some blacks were showing up as green. After spending a couple of hours on various forums, we realized that this is a pervasive issue with this model and no changes to settings are going to correct the problem."

Here's the SD black friday thread from when Walmart had this for sale. Last page shows SDers mostly not happy with the quality: https://slickdeals.net/f/7349702-65-vizio-d6501-b2-1080p-120hz-led-smart-hdtv-for-648-00?page=7

I have been out of the TV market for about 5 years since I bought my old 40 Inch Samsung HDTV. Last week I moved and decided to buy a new TV. No vendor was able to beat the price of a VIZIO with its content. The TV was beautifully crafted and the picture is nice! (Maybe I have been with the old TV for too long, I am no longer qualified to judge LOL). However, as a software engineer, I cant help but to poke around the Smart TV's app capabilities. I have now owned the TV for about a week now and I can tell you that it freezes at least 2-3 times a day due to software/firmware defects. It would freeze watching Netflix or even computer HDMI output. These days, Vizio's TV is so software driven that if Netflix freezes, the ONLY way to reset is to reset the power. IMO, if I have to reset the damn TV every 2-3 hours, then this is an unusable product.

The issues can be fixed if Vizio actually takes time to patch their firmware and software. But it looks like their firmware/software support is none-existent. From the 10 min I had with the customer service, they are completely oblivion to what is going on....

It is sad that Vizio farked up on the software part when the TV is such a beautiful piece. But then again, this kind of issues happen to all manufacturers that arent specialized in software. The sad truth is that Vizio is a hardware company, not software. They are light years behind SamSung. Heck, even Samsung cant produce their own operating system.

There are just so much testing required and Vizio is not up for that. and this is usually also an implication of their hardware quality from a software perspective. Sorry about my rant, if anyone actually cares....

now my next goal is to get a TV that has everything Vizio has but with better software

I have purchased at least 20 vizios in the past 10 years for family and friends and have NO regrets and not a single problem with any functions...this is a GREAT DEAL if you are in the market for a LARGE TV.
