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. Worst remote of any TV related product I have ever owned. Picture is fine. Was surprised that sound comes from behind TV.
Summary: picture is okay, sound okay, easy access to Netflix is nice, but Internet access info is in very small print on the screen so we had to rearrange the bedroom to get it close enough to read. Takes forever to start up, has a lag just changing channels, amazon prime works fine with the featured movies, but if you search for a movie, then try to watch it, it never stops loading !! Think we have to return it since it doesn't do all it's suppose to.
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) because a laptop in the same room connected flawlessly. It didn't slowly go out it went out suddenly.
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. However, by December, the TV had stopped working. It's very disappointing to have to hassle around with a busted TV, dragging it back to the Cities again.
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. It accessed our home wi-fi network very easily and the quality of pictures streamed from Netflix was beautiful. No issues with connectivity at all. The menu is simple and intuitive to use.
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. I know why it was returned and &amp;amp;quot;refurbished.&amp;amp;quot; The picture display is so dark you can&amp;amp;apos;t watch it.
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. Wireless or ethernet works like a charm! VIA apps are great. There is a setting for the AMBIANT LIGHT that should be TURNED OFF or else it is ALWAYS too dark.
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. But during the 10 days the following happened over and over again: as soon as I turned it on the screen froze, the flickered then it turned off spontaneously. At some point the internet apps dissapeared from the TV.
