Summary: Lookup "Vizio pop of death" on the internet, and you will find countless stories of Vizio TVs making a loud pop and then going dead. This has happend twice for me with this TV, It happened about 2 years in when it was on warranty. The service guy put in a new power supply and then less than a year later it popped again. There is a little capacitor on the power supply that explodes.
Summary: This TV has the strangest problem I have ever seen. If I plug a digital audio cable into it, for a soundbar, I can no longer change the input on the TV. So, I can improve the horrible sound of the TV only if I never want to use any other HDMI input. No DVD player, no xbox, no nothing. Yeah, that's what I bought a modern TV for. I cannot recommend you buy this TV.
Summary: PROS: +Great picture +Extremely thin and light +Plenty of ports (HDMI, component, etc.) CONS: -HDMI ports 2, 3, and 4 were all damaged out of the box -Horrific sound -Unfamiliar manufacturer/help -Lifespan (8 months) For those needing further detail, I will go a bit more in-depth in relation to the overall quality of the product.
Summary: I had put off purchasing a new tv for ages and looked at all that I came across in all stores. Read reviews, researched reports looked and measured ones to make sure they would fit in the apace it was destined to go into. I didn't need Wi-Fi so that was not a concern. I saw this model is several retail stores against non LED's and loved the resolution. It has more than enough HMDI connection possibilities and the sound was just fine. It was extremely easy to set up.
Summary: I have several Vizio televisions and they are all very good TV's for their price range and this one is the same. I have always bought my Vizio's local but I couldn't pass up the price of this one. The only problem was the TV was VERY poorly packaged. It appeared to have been used before as the manual was missing and the styrofoam surrounding the tv was broken along with a lot of added packaging tape around the box.
