Excerpt: This is the most used television in our house. The television is easy to control (I am not an electronics geek at all, so I needed something simple). We got it on sale for $239 Black Friday, so it is a wonderful value for the amount of money we spent. The size may be small, but I can see it clearly from across the house while i'm doing dishes.
Excerpt: We wanted to upgrade from our ancient 19" TV and move into the digital age so after a ton of research we chose the Vizio E320VA 32 in. HDTV LCD TV. We purchased it for just under $300 at Costco so we could get the extra year of warranty. The picture is wonderful and the sound quality is great. It was very easy to set up and it takes up so much less space then the older kind of TV. It has six different ways to connect to your components.
Summary: This TV has an amazing picture quality. It was listed as 780 but with RGB componet cables the display states 1080. I am amazed at the picture. I have to agree with other reviews that the speaker quality is bad, but if you don't have surround sound by now, need I say more? Thank you.
Good product for price, sound could do with improvement is only complaint
5 February 2012
Summary: Awesome Picture, my Xbox 360 has never given a better playing picture. My only 2 complaints = 1)Sound is tiny (or tinnie, if you will) i.e. very little if any bass response - but you have to ask yourself what do you expect from speakers smaller than 2" deep. I fixed the problem with a $50 I-Live soundbar from Wal-Mart 2) Not enough A/V outputs/inputs Other than that, the price was darn near unbeatable.
Summary: Since there's a virtual boatload of reviews already posted online for this TV I'll just cut to the chase,so to speak. Great Picture, Good array of features, but not TOO many bells and whistles. The only down side, as posted on nearly ALL the other reviews for this TV, the tiny speakers built into the bottom edge of it are AWFUL. It's like transistor radio sound coming from a 32" HD screen.
Summary: I bought this tv because it was the perfect size for my entertainment center, was at a great price, other reviews and people I talked to said many great things about vizio, I couldn't pass it up. The one thing that I dislike about the tv is the speakers. The sound is terrible. With only an optical digital output for audio I had to get creative with RCA cables coming from all my components to get sound out of my stereo again.
Summary: The reviews discussing the strengths and weaknesses of this product are correct. I read the reviews prior to purchasing but purchased anyway because I was planning on using the surround sound speakers with this TV. The sound is particularly bad and the picture is particularly good. If you want to know how the tv will sound, turn on your stereo and turn the base way down and the treble way up...that will give you an idea.
Summary: I really enjoy this TV, great picture slim deign. The sound was the only complaint. it sounds OK but there have been times that it sounds pitchy and whinny. So on a positive note to the sound, i used my computer speakers on it and it sounds 100% better no matter what u are watching. I bought this TV to replace the dinosaur i had in my bedroom. I would recommend getting an aftermarket SRS or just do what i did use you computer speakers. Thanks, Joe M.
