Pros This is a fantastic tv for the price. Yes, it doesn't compare to a $2,000 tv, but at it's price it obviously isn't trying to. You can get them for $750 at Walmart. Also the speakers sound great compared to my old flat screen (also vizio)
Cons It is a bit thicker than most modern LED tv's, and it has a larger border around it.
Summary This is a fantastic tv. Again, not the best in the world, but i feel the tone of David's review paint it in a very low light. Yes there are better tvs but that isn't to say that this tv isnt fantastic in its own right. I got my old flatscreen about 5 years ago, and there is a HUGE difference in picture quality.
You could go for a more expensive upgrade, but if you want something that is better than what you have, and don't want to spend a ton of money on it this really is the tv to get in my opinion. I've never had a single problem with it's apps, my Xbox looks amazing on it, as does my Sony bluray player, time warner cable box, and my laptop (SWTOR and Assassins Creed look particularly fantastic)
Anyway to really sum it up, I would say that the reviewer is correct, but don't think that this is a crappy tv, it's all a matter of what you're comparing it to, because I am very happy with purchasing it.
Pros Low Price is the only plus on this TV.
Cons Bad Bkack Levels, Poor Flesh-tones, 24 fps issues, cheap construction.
Summary I bought this TV on August 19, 2012 because I wanted an inexpensive TV for my bedroom. The picture quality isn't all that great (Blacks & Flesh-tones are awful), but the price was low, so you get what you pay for. By the beginning of March 2013, the Vizio logo on the front of the TV will no longer illuminate when you power the TV off. Since the color of the Vizio Logo is used for diagnostics (white on, orange off), I called Vizio customer support to let them know about my issue. After the customer service rep spoke to me, she put me on hold and contacted a service representative. The service rep diagnosed the problem to be a failing LED. The customer service rep put me on hold and started to set up a service visit. When she came back on the line, the customer service rep told me that Vizio will not repair the failing LED since the picture and sound on the TV are still working. I really can't believe that Vizio will not repair the failing LED that illuminates the Vizio logo on the front of the TV. The color and flash rate of the logo are used for diagnostic trouble codes when a problem arises with the TV circuitry. Now I have no way to tell what the problem is when a part inside the TV fails. It also amazes me that this is their "LOGO" that will now not illuminate when the TV is off. It is supposed to be a bright orange "VIZIO" logo showing off their brand name. If Vizio won't repair something as simple as a failing LED, the horror stories I have read about Visio Service on all the A/V forums must indeed be true! Granted it would cost Vizio to send a repair person to my house to fix the problem, but they must not really care about their products being 100% functional. This is the first and the last Vizio product I will ever purchase.
Pros It's big TV
Cons There should be a fix.
Summary What do you think WiFi is here?If I have the AT&T WiFi box I get TV?
