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.
Summary: Don't get carried away with the great price. I bought three of these. One was bad out of the box. One went bad after two months. A tech was dispatched both times to repair the units. One unit went bad again two months after repair. Support is hit or miss. Sometimes you get someone that is very helpful and sometimes you have to settle for someone acts like they are doing your favor. Spend a little extra for something else and a piece of mind.
Summary: This Vizio 32 inch LCD HDTV was advertised as "refurbished" when in fact it was a counterfeit. The set blew out after less than 90 days of use and contact with the "manufacturer" to access the warranty proved that the serial number was not a product code for the genuine Vizio product. The seller lied about the serial number being reissued after refurbishing and falsely presented to Amazon that the product dispute had been resolved when it had not.
Summary: Bought this because of the internet apps and the price was so good. I just packaged it up and sent it back to amazon and will look for another brand. The picture was just to dark. No amount of fixing would change this. When on pause you could see the picture flicker back and forth. Very difficult to watch. I went to a box store to see if it was the brand or just the one I had. It is the brand.
Summary: I failed to read review from different websites. I bought the TV because it was cheap and had a lot of things I was looking for. I bought a refurbished one thinking any problems with the TV should be fixed. The TV took a little over a week to get to me. When I opened it it looked great came with most of what I was expecting. Instead of a manual I got a CD with manual written on it. I plugged the TV in so far so good set it up and was off and running.
Summary: Set defective from get go. Would take six minutes to warm up. Unable to get decent picture, except in custom menu, sound doesn't synch. About ten calls to tech support confirm set defective. Four emails with amazon receipt rejected because the couldnt read a text or PDF format......so much wasted time....recommend not dealing with this company....samsung Sony panasonic are ok.
Summary: I have two main issues with the TV, and the company support has not helped with either issue. I am going to return it and buy a different brand. First issue: this TV shoots sparks out when I try to connect it to my cable box. I had the TV plugged into the same outlet as my old HDTV, using the same HDMI cable. It did the same thing when I tried to connect via component cables.
Summary: Bought this TV specifically for Netflix capability and the relatively low price. Returned this TV because of difficulties connecting to the wireless router, poor customer support, and freezing picture. It took several tries to get the TV to recognize my secure connection to the router, and it was not clear what made it finally work. Calls to Vizio support didn't help, other than instructing me on how to perform a factory reset so I could start all over.
