Summary: Bought this as an upgrade from my 5 year old plasma vizio (42"). Picture quality is great. I use it for gaming (PS3), movies, and as a secondary monitor. I see no shadowing or ghosting issues. The internal speakers are lacking as expected, but I have it hooked up to a 5.1 home theater anyways. This TV was a great deal, and I am really impressed with the screen quality.
Summary: Have this set for one year now, works perfectly. I can view the screen from very sharp angles with no loss of definition or color. This is the second Vizio I have and they don't disappoint! It was at a good price and delivery was fast. If you're looking for a brand I would say check them out for quality and price!
Summary: I've had this TV now for about 6 months. So far, I am extremely happy with my purchase. I had a 27" Sony Bravia prior to this as my main tv, so for me 47" is a HUGE upgrade. The picture is just as good as the Sony, and the sound is pretty good as well. To be fair, I have it hooked up to a home theater system, so I can't really judge the tv only sound fairly. This is not a top of the line tv.
Summary: Recieved my 47' vizio today.. super stoked!! Enjoying this product so far.. pitcure is excellent ...and i must say i gotten it before my date was to be shipped out.. will tell all to get one!! Dared the kids to touch it..lol.. still have to figure out the hookin the tv up to my dvr.. thinking i need new cords. Will be my next buy.. the sound on this tv is crasy good.. caint wait to play xbox on it!!!
Summary: I paid only $580 for this TV, free shipping, when I bought it during a special pre-Black Friday sale. So it was a tremendous bargain! The picture quality is outstanding, the sound quality is only average, but I'm not an audiophile so it doesn't bother me. This TV replaced a plasma unit which suffered from room/window light reflections; no such problem with the LCD screen.
Summary: I had a Sony 46 " TV that have a light that had to be replaced about every 14-15 months and the light was expensive. My son surprised me with this tv and I absolutely love this vizio. The picture is the best I have ever had. I tell all my friends when they need to replace their tv to get the vizio. When company is here they always comment on the picture. Just remarks like - boy that is a good picture on that tv.
