Summary: I bought this tv a year ago because it seemed like a good deal. It worked ok for a year without complaints for the most part although it is kind of finicky when connecting to your wireless network at home. After a year and a day (1 day out of manufacturers warranty) I suddenly have horizontal lines all across my tv .
Summary: All of the hardware aspects of this TV are great for a $700 47" LED unit. But when you start trying to use the apps you see where your couple extra hundred bucks didn't get invested. Netflix, Pandora, and Youtube are constantly failing to load, crashing, or operating with strange glitches. I've run wired and wireless over the network, no difference.
Great TV. Beautiful picture. Everything works great except I cannot add widgets. I have to contact Amtone to find out why.

Summary: Picture and sound are fantastic. You cannot tell it's a refurb. I bought this because it fits in my entertainment unit perfectly and the specs on this TV are exceptional. I don't know why Vizio discontinued this TV. It's excellent!
Summary: We bought this for our Christmas gift 2012. Very nice TV. the HD pictures are awesome and vibrant. Ordering on Amazon was much better then waiting in line on Black Friday. We did go to WalMart but by the time we found where the TV's were located they were sold out.
Summary: Okay so I waited a while to write my review. I know there were some concerns with it so I wanted to try it out for a while before I jumped for joy and said that this was the best little television this side of the Mississippi. In short, I've had this 47" TV a little over a year now. Bought at the beginning of last summer and it has yet to disappoint. I wanted something good on a budget and Vizio is the way to go by far for budget shopping with quality.
Summary: Great TV for the price, picture is wonderful and the speakers are surprisingly loud and clear. The internet function is pretty slow and the controller can be a little annoying, but if you are buying a tv for the internet and controller just by a cheaper one and get a roku or use a game console. Overall this was a great buy!
