Summary: As others have stated, the picture is great, but the audio on some channels is always off. We also called tech support, but did not solve the problem. The remote does have to be pushed pretty hard to work, however the tv does change channels a little fast than many others on the market. We returned the first one to Costo, bought another one, but same problem.
Summary: I was very excited to find the 37" Vizio E371VA as it was both reasonably priced and one of a small number of 37" TVs that will fit in out 36" wide cabinet. Overall the picture looks great on HD channels. But as other reviewers have reported there are significant audio / lip sync issues. This is without any adjustment and using the integrated speakers. Tried disabling various video and audio processing features but can't seem to fix it. Will be calling Vizio tomorrow.
Summary: This tv was not right for me. The picture, with a high quality source, is phenomenal. 1080p and 120hz at this price is unheard of, and won me over. However, great picture doesn't make up for the sets many problems. The sound is loud enough, but sounds tinny and weak, and isn't synched with the video (strange since they're both going through the tv).
Summary: What a waste of plastic and metal. Rarely did the sound match the pictures on the screen. This seems like an easy fix for Vizio, but they didn't/don't bother even talking about the problem let alone the fix. This one went back to Costco. I did really like the picture quality, but that's it. Everything else about this TV is not worth being exposed to every day.
Summary: This was our first Vizio television--and probably our last. It's a shame because it has a fantastic picture that rivals televisions twice its price. The issues we had echo some of the sentiments many reviewers on here have for this TV. The first night we used it, we noticed the volume level would increase and decrease wildly, many times within the same commercial or show.
Summary: purchased from Amazon Warehouse Deals in "Like New Condition" Definatley not in Like New Comndition. The base of the T.V. was broken and a screw was so badly stripped I could not remove the neck. Arrived in box that was beat up, ripped, dented.
Summary: I see others are having the same issue. Volume will go up and down on it's own during a show (not just commercials). Sometimes picture and sound will go off even though tv is powered on. Sometimes the picture will go to a green screen. Picture quality is nice, but there is something definitely wrong with the sound on the tv.
Summary: Have a 36 inch cabinet, this set fits great and the picture is ok. Price was good but at the time I purchased I found a better price on the Dell site. I could not find the Amazon TV low price policy on the Amazon web site and they did not respond to my inquiry, so I switched to Dell. Read about the vidio sync issues and hoped that the problem was fixed, but no, people are mumbling and talking out the side of their mouth.
Volume issues with channel changes and commercials
D. Royalty, Amazon
10 December 2010
Summary: I bought this TV at Costco two days ago. (I wish had bothered to read actual user reviews first.) I'm returning it tonight due to audio (volume) issues. The volume fluctuates very noticeably (and annoyingly) either when 1) you change channels or 2) there is a commercial. I couldn't really put the remote down...I was constantly raising and lowering the volume. Too bad because I really liked the picture.
