Great buy

  • Summary: I plugged this tv in and was amazed how easy the setup was. I am coming from a 6 year old LG and the pitcure blows me out of the water. I went with this tv based off the revies at rtings.com and cnet.com. I was going to go 4k but decided to wait and bought this tv. The tv itself is ho hum. nothing fancy, but the picture is great and it has great lag for gaming. I am not disapointed.
  • Pros: Excellent picture, easy setup. Xbox one games look great!
  • Cons: Ho hum remote. Smart tv features are very basic. Lack luster cabinet.

  • Excerpt: I cannot tell you how strongly I recommend that you DO NOT BUY this tv under any circumstances. I had issues with one, exchanged it and had the exact same issues with the second.This tv will randomly turn itself off. Fastest way to replicate this is to try and use any of the smart apps.
  • Pros: LED-backlit
  • Cons: Turns Off

Go with Amazon Instant Video - I guarantee you wont make it though a whole movie before the TV suddenly shuts itself off.

Turns Off At Random - Smart Apps Dont Work Right

David G., Newegg

  • Summary: I cannot tell you how strongly I recommend that you DO NOT BUY this tv under any circumstances. I had issues with one, exchanged it and had the exact same issues with the second. This tv will randomly turn itself off. Fastest way to replicate this is to try and use any of the smart apps. Go with Amz Instant Video - I guarantee you wont make it though a whole movie before the TV suddenly shuts itself off.
  • Pros: Value
  • Cons: Turns off randomly - firmware seems buggy - smart apps dont work - no known timeframe for a firmware release (if any will happen)

  • Summary: I am pleased so far with my purchase, the slim design is attractive, the picture quality at 1080p is awesome. The picture settings are very versatile, which is convenient to optimize your preferred visual settings. If you are looking for a true smart tv, this is not it, there is no browser option which is a huge disappointment. The yahoo apps are mediocre at best.

Can't beat this deal

  • Excerpt: I did not need anything larger than this. I purchased with together with the vizio sound bar. It is a snap to put it together. This TV is very very light, and although it is no recommended, you can put it up by yourself. The sound bar is now used as speaker of every device in the house thanks to its bluetooth.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Picture Quality, Reduced Glare

Excellent TV for the price, less than 500!

  • Summary: Cnet had this review spot on.  It performs exactly like it was described in the review.  I was debating whether or not to get a 4k tv, but i decided to go this route because the 4k content is not truly out.  This was a cheap upgrade compared to my 7 year old LG.  i made a great choice.  Gaming is smooth and blu ray looks great.
  • Pros: easy setup, great picture and gaming tv
  • Cons: Not physically pleasing, remote is terrible, speakers are not great.

  • Summary: I find the picture brash and in a month have not found any way to do a full adjustment to improve it. The remote on mine is frustrating at best. Any button you are trying to use goes back and forth with one touch. Example; going to previous channel, it will jump back to the channel your currently on. ALL buttons are extremely touch like this. Sound is ok, (5 out of a 10). The menu does not have much in the way of adjustments and options.

  • Summary: I was very pleased with this TV. Only bad thing was, you have to point remote to the bottom left of TV. Sound quality was ok but, ended up buying Vizio 5.1 Sound bar and, that made it sweet. Nice quality picture. Make sure you are receiving 1080P for a signal to receive Full HD.
