Summary: This TV has a great picture, but it takes 2-3 minutes for the TV to "warm up" before the picture comes on. It's not a deal breaker but I have not owned a TV since the 80's that had to warm up.
Summary: This TV provides adequate picture quality, but you really have to work to get it. Start by turning off all of the automagic stuff, particularly the automagic correction for room lighting conditions. It's really impossible to get consistently decent pictures with all of the helpful automatics turned on. There are a lot of color/brightness/contrast controls and their functions are not adequately explained in the instruction manual.
Summary: Picture is good, but slow start time is annoying. The 'connected' aspect is intriguing, but currently few useful applications other than the usual suspects of NetFlix, Amazon, etc. Really wish that there was a SlingPlayer app available. Works well as a wall-mounted television for the bedroom.
Summary: 1 MONTH UPDATE - I'm downgrading to 3 stars from 4. Frankly the TV is buggy for my tastes. The latest thing that displeased me is I could not get audio from my laptop to run through the TV speakers (PC audio in). So if you want to use this as a computer monitor, it's a major compromise. Driver updates didn't work, trying HDMI audio didn't work, and I did a store exchange and the replacement didn't work either.
Summary: I bought this as a refurb product. I was told that there was no warranty by Newegg- at least they were up-front. As soon as I plugged the TV in, the illuminated "Vizio" logo at the bottom edge of the TV started blinking. I figured I had done something wrong or something as a bit more fideling with the remote and the problem evaded.
