Awesome TV for the price its was a steal
11 July 2013
Summary: Great color display, and great 3d Depth for the price , I upgraded from a non-intenet tv. So the usb ports on the side are great for hook up portable HardDives with media to play movies or music. The only bad thing about the TV is the stock speakers that are on the bottom of the TV are not that loud but surround sound will help.
Summary: I love this TV. Setup was easy. Great picture quality. Wonderful features with ability to adjust picture for everything from movies to golf, baseball and football. Did not purchase this for the 3-D feature but it's there in case I change my mind. It has all the bells and whistles for Internet use. I am not all that computer savvy so haven't attempted to set those up. I just wanted a big screen 1080 HD TV and got more than I expected for the price.
Summary: The quality of the TV and picture is great, a really good deal for the price. I am a little bummed that some of the apps are glitchy and some do not work at all (Wall Street Journal in particular). I was really excited for the WSJ app, but I can not get it working at all. 3d and 2D video quality is very crisp and the interface is well thought out and easy to use. I am happy with this product.
passive 3D, great price, but there is one downside...

Summary: Interesting thing with this TV is that you get a passive 3D HDTV set with 3 HDMI inputs. The picture quality is very good, but the audio on the HDMI port lags behind the sound by a fraction of a second. This causes issues when watching streaming videos on my PS3, but the bluray sound sync is just fine. Let's just say that there is a definite lag.
Summary: So I just got this TV in this morning. PROS First, let me say that the setup was fairly easy, The startup time is shorter than my other LCDs (about 5 seconds to boot), And it has a pretty darn good picture, comparable with my Toshiba Regzia. I tend to be a bit of a butt when it comes to HD quality - that is pretty much the reason I bought a THIRD HDTV, because my Philips was less than desirable. Colors are pretty spot-on right out of the box.
Summary: For the price, this TV is an incredible value. It does suffer from some pretty substantial back light inconsistency, more than most Vizio models I am familiar with, and the color saturation is a bit less than desirable even after a thorough calibration. That being said, the TV still performs better than most other models I have seen in its class. Where this TV really shines is in 3D mode.
Summary: The picture on this TV is pretty good after you adjust the setting. If you can afford a little more though you should check out this vizio 42" it uses LED which provides a much better picture (my other vizio is a razor LED) and also it uses true 3d (the active shutter glasses) were this tv uses the polorized passive which ends up dividing your HD signal in half.
Summary: I was impressed with how well this TV produced flawless 3D effects without any ghosting at all. 3D Blu-ray movies appear brighter and even more rich in color through the polarized glasses. As opposed to some of the active shutter glasses I have tried out, the lightweight polarized glasses are less strenous on both the eyes and the nose they rest on. The TV also works well with the PS3 and generates an immersive 3d gaming enviroment.
Great television, apps and 3d...slower than I hoped.

Summary: 3months in and I'm still happy with my purchase, but boy is it slow starting up (25secs) and switching between inputs or resolutions (5-6secs). Additionally, input lag with 'Game Mode' off or 'Film mode' on is borderline absurd, basically an entire second. Even with 'Game Mode' is on, my guess is there's still 0.1-0.2 sec input lag.
