Summary: This was a fantastic buy. I bought this on Amazon via Tiger Direct after returning a Philips 50" back to Sam's Club, and it took only 3 days to arrive. The Philips had Wi-Fi that worked sometimes, a horrible remote, a so-so picture, and a serious lack of connections. A PC rbg but not the mini-plug audio in, nor RCA audio-in plugs. This VIZIO has a great picture, superior sound, a well thought out remote that works beautifully and just enough connections.
Summary: This was a refurbished unit. Happy with TV, but surprised it was not damaged in shipping. VERY pourly packaged. Also, unit did not come a owners manual or guide. Have purchased many refurbished items from other companies over the years and have always received a product that looked like it was new. Although overall happy with the purchase, experience could have been much better.
Summary: i absolutely love this tv...at first i was just a little sketical because its not a LED tv its backlight is CCFL...but i have a 47 inch vizio that is LED in our living room and this tv has just as good a picture as a LED one and cost $200 less than my LED one...
Summary: I've moved away from Samsung after all of those issues that we've had with our last two. The Vizio has a phenomenal picture which is as good, if not better than my Samsung's. The sound on this thing actually sounds decent (unlike our Samsung's which had speakers blown in a few months). The TV handles gaming on my Xbox very well! Ambient light sensor works well, which is very helpful as I fall asleep to TV every night.
Manufacture from China has a long way to go to embrace Demming standards -

Summary: Opening up these sets tells you what little quality of manufacture you are getting for a considerable cost: little pieces of tape used instead of proper small/inexpensive brackets; metallic tape used to ground sensitive circuit boards; components that just make minimum requirement - as long as they make it through the warranty period. Demming would have had nightmares about the quality dedicated to manufacturing many of these sets e.g., Vizio, Quantum View, Element.
Summary: This TV has a really nice picture, 1080p HD, the whole package! Why spend thousands on other LCD or LED TV's, when you can get this one for half that price... I can't complain about anything. My order shipped ahead of time, all I had to do was plug it in to the wall and hook the cable up and I was watching football within a few minutes of receiving the TV. I paid less on amazon for the same TV at Wal-mart...
