Summary: We bought this Vizio M420SR TV about 3 months ago at a local membership club, only because we have a smaller Vizio in our bedroom and really like Netflix Instant Watch. We put the newer, larger one in our living room. At first, it would not connect to Netflix AT ALL. It would return a message after several minutes that we had no internet connection, but we clearly did - we could watch YouTube, access Yahoo features, etc.
Summary: Don't plan on watching Netflix or Amazon without another interface. Yahoo News, Vudu, and web videos work just fine though. (Vizio insists that Comcast is blocking their servers, but my Roku and Sony BDP-BX18 are not blocked.) FYI, code 04 works awesome to control my Vizio M420SR HDTV from my Sony BDP-BX18. TV turns on automatically with the BDP and switches to the correct input too. Sony remote also has a direct button to Netflix which plays just fine through the VIZIO.
Summary: Given our positive experiences with Vizio products in the past, we have been stunned by the low quality of this product. Short version: The WiFi aspect of this television is unworkably bad. You cannot watch streaming content from any provider (Netflix, Aazon Prime, etc.). Purchasing a $70 streaming box and a standard TV is a MUCH more efficient and elegant solution. The "apps" installed on the TV for common streaming services (Pandora, Netflix, etc.
Summary: I have had my vizio for about a week now and so far love it; the features and quality almost compares to the other higher costing brands; Built in wifi, sound, and picture quality are high. Navigating through the menu might be a bit challenging and its not a samsung but for over 30% cheaper than the competition, its worth every penny.
Excerpt: I've had my Vizio TV for some time and its a workhorse. The picture is clear enough, it's easy to use and the remote, trust me, is nearly indestructible. Great for bedroom or second TV where your not needing the "big game" effect. It can be a bit grainy but I usually watch this as a bedroom TV. Not nearly as crisp as some others out there. Still not bad for everyday use. It's ok, but nothing special. Sometimes have to turn it way up to hear network shows.
Summary: Great tv with speakers infront and automatic sound adjustment during comercials. I use it inmy bedroom and it is large enough to see even the tiniest woords on the crawl. Very sharp and clear picture is a huge plus.
Summary: Amazon has a great shipping/delivery service. However, when I received my shipment, the TV Box was beatup and wet. The TV has very poor manual and took me a long time to set it up. Pictures and sounds are not in sync. for example when watching news, the news person's lips movement does not mach the sound. TV response to the remote control is very slow and only from certain angles.
