Dollar 4 Dollar you can't beat the value of the Vizio line of HDTV's.

jmpkwon, Ebay

  • Summary: Overall very pleased with this purchase. A note from a previous Vizio HDTV I'd bought in the past. I suppose I was expecting the same features as my previous HDTV had.I only wish my current HDTV had the same features of my former Vizio HDTV. The "mute" button on the remote(on my former HDTV)stayed silent as you lowered the volume only to "un-mute" if you turned the volume BACK UP.

Excellent Value for the the Money

  • Summary: Excellent picture quality & excellent sound quality, this TV was purchased as reconditioned but appeared brand new. The only issue I found was that after mounting the pedestal base, the unit didn't sit level. I resolved the problem by using a few washers as spacers.

Nice TV--VIZIO Logo Light too bright

Susan E. Stephon "Susan", Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Overall it is a very nice TV. However, it was purchased for my bedroom and the VIZIO logo light that is on the lower front bezel, never goes off. It is bright when the TV is on, and dimmer when it is off, but always lit. Since this TV is in my bedroom, the light when the TV is off was very annoying until I put about 6 strips of blue painter's tape over the logo. You can still see a slight glow through the layers of tape, but it is not too bad.

Good TV for the money. Bluray movies look great. You'll need a sound bar.

  • Summary: This is a good Full HD 120hz TV for the money. The smooth motion feature works great on some movies. The menu on the other hand is pretty confusing since some items are not available when you enable others but you never really know what's the logic of it. Speakers are bad. Keep the true sound feature on if you don't want to be constantly adjusting the volume. I highly recommend an audio receiver or a TV sound bar.

Great price, great picture and sound, but get a new remote!

  • Summary: Great overall LCD T.V. for the money. Can tell a huge difference in xbox games with the 120 hz refresh rate, it's really fast. I normally sit about 8 ft from my t.v and this is a perfect size, not too big not too small. I had problems at first with the Vizio turning off randomly but I realized that there's a wiring problem with the manufacturer's remote. I went to wal-mart, spent 10 bucks on a universal remote, programmed it and haven't had a problem since.

Not sure what everyone is complaining about...oh wait...

Ryan White "Ryan", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had the Vizio 37" TV for a few days now, so I temper my positive review with the idea that the other shoe could drop...although with Amazon's return policy, I feel pretty confident. I was a little apprehensive about the purchase because of the negative reviews, but I have not seen any of the reported problems from other reviews. ** Video/Audio not in sync? Not a problem here. I've tried all the HDMI ports, component input, composite input. No problems.

Incredible Picture, Awful Audio, But Workable Set

Brent in NY, Amazon
14 September 2011
  • Summary: After reading a ton of reviews on several sites, I hesitantly bought this on sale at BJ's for $399...the price was too good to pass up. First and foremost I want to clear up the "lip sync" issue, because that is a truly annoying thing to have to live with...you HAVE TO USE AN HDMI cable with this set ($32 Walmart - bought the Vizio brand - figured that made the most sense). The regular audio/video cables that come in the box are pointless, Vizio can have them back.

IGNORE THE BAD REVIEWS ....AWESOME HD MONITOR/TV FOR PRICE!!!

Patrick Sheehy "Tech Guru", Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: One of the 1st problem is that people probably using the RGB connector on the tv and connecting it to your VGA output on you pc. That's a NO..NO!....Thats why the text is jagged and colors don't look right because that port cannot process the additional digital signalling. If your video card has a HDMI or a DV-I port then use that. I have my VIZIO E371VA connected to my pc thru HDMI port on TV then I used a HDMI to DV-I cable ($20) to connect to DV-I output on pc.

Disappointed in AMAZON!

Brett "Technology Evangelist", Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I saw this TV on sale at Costco and immediately checked Amazon.com. I purchased the TV at a HIGHER PRICE from Amazon because of the PRICE MATCHING policy of Amazon.com, which they do for televisions only. Well it turns out their price matching policy does not apply to any "time limited offer" or sale prices, which essentially negates the entire policy. I went round and round with the Amazon rep on this.

Great TV at a great price!

Tom, Amazon
6 January 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this TV over the holidays while it was on a pretty deep discount ($450). I primarily found it because of physical size (our TV cabinet has a 35.5" width max and this is 35.4"), but I am very happy with what I got for our money. Here's the breakdown: VIDEO: The picture quality is EXCELLENT on both HD and SD sources - no graininess like you see on most cheaper sets.
