That's what we found when we asked about more than 161,000 flat panel LCD and plasma TVs purchased by our readers between 2009 and 2013. The graph shows the percentage of models for each brand that were repaired or had a serious problem. Differences of less than 3 points aren't meaningful, and we've adjusted the data to eliminate differences linked solely to the age of the TV. Models within a brand can vary, and design or manufacture changes might affect future reliability. Still, choosing a brand with a good repair history can improve your odds of getting a reliable model."
Vizio as a brand (at 4%) is tied with or within one point of every other major brand sold in the US, in this survey. Say what you want about Consumer Reports, but it's a fact that this is the only actual data about the reliability of TVs available to consumers.
Personally, i own or have installed four Vizios, the oldest three years ago. All continue to perform flawlessly.
Also, I agree. All of my Vizios have been awesome!

the 70 inch just isn't that good of a deal at all. $1598 at my walmart right now new. with their return policy and the one year warranty.
shipping an 80 lb tv back plus the weight of the packaging doesn't sound good at all.
I always did like yardsales.
