Summary: Purchased two of these in August and September 2012. Both worked great for awhile then one went out today after only 18 months. It appears to be the board problem that others have described here. I also purchased the newer model E320-A1 last year and it went out after about 3 weeks. Amazon replaced the E320 but the replacement was bad out of the box. It seems that Vizio has a serious quality control problem. Power surges, brownouts, etc.
Summary: This TV constantly malfunctions. At first I thought the problem was with Netflix, then I bought a ROKU for another TV and realized the problem was with the TV. Now it's getting worse; the remote and buttons on the TV keep failing. I'm fed up with it; wish I'd never bought it and wish I could do more than just warn others. I actually might throw it away.
One of my best decisions ever was to buy this TV- I love it!

Summary: I bought this product for my office/mancave and didn't have a lot of money so I bought it used. It took some real soul searching to make me buy a used TV! It exceeded my expectations right out of the box. Its appearance is great and it plays even better-CLEAR! If there is something to dislike about this TV I haven't found it yet. It updated the firmware when I turned it on and has a guide to take you through setup.
Summary: My second Vizio, and I am really sold. This is used in our bedroom, maybe three times a week, so I does not get nonstop use. With that said, after six months it is still great. Sharp picture, good sound, familiar remote. Paired it with a Vid Secu mount. Great for watching in bed.
great picture and sound and smart tv features, but takes too long to warm up

Summary: If the tv warmed up faster, then I would have given it 5 stars. Also, the apps are great, but having one that would allow me to freely browse the internet would be perfect. The technology can do that, but I suspect it's a question of vizio not making those few extra bucks that they get by controlling access to the internet thru apps that generate revenues for them.
Summary: I have 3 of these babies in my house and this one I bought for the purpose of being my computer screen. OK...So I'M BLIND and can't see. On a more serious note, I have purchased Sanyo and Sony and a couple others and they seem to give up the ghost in about 1 year. Albeit, my family leaves the TV's on from dawn till dusk. I finally purchased my 1st Visio about 2 years ago. It has surpassed the extended warranty and is still going strong.
Summary: Very good picture and lots of features including Internet applications using a wireless network. Very good for a second or third set. The only complaint I have is the tiny remote control with very small buttons that are so close together. Also overly sensitive buttons that must be pressed quickly or 3 or 4 repeats appear. Press channel 3 and it might come up as 333.
Summary: VIZIO has remarkable sound, with lifelike color. I watched an episode of Sopranos when I first got the television, and thought the crickets were inside my house because the sound was so lifelike. I hadn't had a flatscreen television before. This 31-inch one fit perfectly even though I was afraid it would be too large. Some tricks--the VIZIO takes about 25 seconds to turn on.
