Summary: This will not be my typical review but more of why I would not buy another Vizio. The set was purchases in Sept 2011. When new the TV had a very nice picture and sound. It has a good selection of inputs for devices. This TV is in my wife's quilting room in the basement.
Summary: Very nice tv that was used but looks and feels and was packaged as brand new. It came early even on cyber Monday which was a huge plus. Great quality and sound and the price was great for what I got.
Summary: I received this TV surprisingly quickly after placing the order. Since it is replacing a 20 year old tube tv. You can imagine my surprise when I realized I could pick it up with one hand. Also it's very easy to set up once you understand the new technology involved.
Summary: First off, the problem I've had with this set has affected other Vizio tv's, random loss of picture. The problem occurs after watching the tv for 10 minutes or more. The loss of picture lasts for 3 to 10 seconds, and then the picture returns.
Summary: I purchased this TV for $250 open box and for that price it is fantastic. For $400 not so much. Picture quality is excellent if calibrated well.I recommend doing a factory reset first thing when you turn on the TV (especially if purchased used or refurbished).
Summary: I guess it's fine as a TV, except for some backlight bleed in dark scenes and at wide viewing angles. However, it's a terrible computer monitor. Only the VGA input works correctly, (the HDMI inputs lack a "PC mode" or "1 to 1 pixel mode"), and the colors are terrible and impossible to adjust.
