Great TV!

  • Excerpt: We decided on this TV because it was an awesome price at Sams and it Vizio is a well known brand. We had read some reviews online that said it had problems with sound, but we weren't too concerned because don't have that big of a living space. We got it home and it was very easy to get out of the box and set up. Had it up and going within an hour. The clarity is absolutely stunning. If you get too close up though, it gets kind of pixelized.

  • Cons: Still not thrilled about the remote and the on screen menus, but one, it is a better experience then most and two, I am not aware of anyone who has solved that problem to my liking.

Awesome TV, a few bugs to be ironed out

patemery, Amazon
29 October 2010
  • Summary: I've had this TV for nearly a month. I had the issue that others have noted where the TV would freeze up. When the TV was on it would have picture and sound but could not be changed AT ALL. Couldn't change channels, input, volume or even turn it off. Not even using the button on the set. Had to unplug.

"Excellent picture quality comparable to my Kuro"

alloos, CNET
25 September 2010
  • Pros: Although it can't beat my Kuro but for half the price of Kuro and 5 inches more, it is definitely a bargain compared to others for same size under LED category.
  • Cons: Black level not as good as LG 8500, VT25 or G20 and David didn't mention the actual level he found during his test, does anyone know? 1080p/24 frame rate issue, Vizio does not even mention what it supports, 36? Not elegant looking due to speakers.
