Other than that, mine had an old version of the firmware in which Netflix was broken. The firmware is "pushed" to the device by Vizio, so you just turn on the tv one time and suddenly it informs you that it has been updated. I connected my TV with an ethernet cable (instead of wifi) and it updated the next time I power cycled. That may just be a coincidence. So Netflix works with the new firmware (3.12.1)
Other than the aforementioned items, I am very happy. Just need to get a 3D source to see how that is.
If the dead pixel continues to disturb you, see if VIZIO will replace your unit.
Good to hear you're happy otherwise!
I'm just hanging out, really.
