Summary: Easy set up but real problems with design of remote and apps. Buttons on remote are very small and some are overly sensitive and others quite difficult to get to work. A real delay from time button is pushed to when TV responds leads to real problems when you get a little impatient.
Internet capablilty worked for 1 year and then broke...

Summary: Worked great for 1 year & 1 month and then the tv was not able to connect to the internet/netflix wirelessly or wired with an ethernet cable. I tried all the fixes Vizio suggested and we knew it was not a fault on the wireless (incorrect password, etc) or wired with an ethernet cable (bad cable)...
Summary: We got this TV for our cabin up north. "There is no cable or wifi, so the only way we're using it is for playing video devices. I can't say how well it works as a 'smart' TV, but I can say that the picture is superb." That's what I wrote when we first got the TV last summer.
Excellent quality and price for a smart TV - BUT see updates

Summary: The review below was written soon after purchase. Updates a few months later are below. The quality of the picture on this TV is absolutely amazing. It was simple to hook up and set up right out of the box.
Quality control is lacking, set has certain limitations. READ THIS REVIEW!

Summary: WARNING... I read the reviews, compared the price to new at the local discount club and bought the TV. Two MAJOR Issues exist. 1) After going through the initial setup I got down to trying to use and watch this TV. They should not have sent this particular unit out.
Summary: This is a new HD set for the bedroom. I initially bought the 26" VIZIO and it was too small. It also appeared a little dark. I went back and bought the 32" Vizio e322vl. I initially heard the high pitched sound when i plugged it in then i guess it went away. Everything was a snap to install.
Summary: I was very happy with this set. I have had a Vizio TV for 4 years and never had a problem with it. This one was easy to set up, the internet apps are awesome. I even was able to stream movies using my HTC EVO.
