Pros Great looking TV, great price
Qwerty keyboard on remote
Cons Remote itself pretty ugly, flimsy, and plain
Annoying Vizio light on front
Need more better apps, YouTube, etc.
Summary I bought this TV back in November 2010 as Christmas gifts for my kids bedrooms so I've only had a couple of months with it and so far I love it. Did a lot of searching around to find the perfect TV for my kids. Was gonna go the cheap route and buy something simple around $200 before I came across this TV. The price was great, especially for everything it does. It was on sale on Amazon for $550. Didn't really look into Vizio all that much but everything I have read on the reviews were great. It has a load of apps and more have been added since I bought it.Edit Link
There are only a few apps that really stand out but hopefully more will come on the way. Was a little disappointed that you could not use YouTube to look at videos like it shows on the advertisement but they have something similar which is ok for what it does. Netflix is great on it, great HD quality, no lag, and I'm still using a 6 yr old WiFi Router. Pandora and Facebook can also be used on it. My kids always love to get on Facebook. Much easier to use the cell phone though. Pandora is great on it as well but the speakers are mediocre at best.
The sound is fine for TV but not for music. Would probably be better with surrond sound on most of these new TV's anyways. The picture quality is great. Not alot of settings to play with but thats ok unless you are really big on that sort of thing. The remote has a built in Qwerty keyboard which is really nice and makes it easier to type and navigate. Haven't seen any other brand have something like that. What I didn't like was that it was a finger print magnet due to it being very glossy. Don't know why they didn't go matte with it.
The remote itself is kind of ugly and other than the keyboard is pretty plain with no backlight. It also feels a little flimsy and looks like it is easily breakable. My kids have already dropped it a few times but so far so good. Another thing I didn't like was that annoying little Vizio light on the front of the TV. It stays on even with the TV off.
Waste of energy if you ask me. Love that this TV has Bluetooth as well, for headphones, etc. All in all this was a great buy at a great price for everything that it does. I strongly recommend it.

Pros All the features of this LED/LCD TV are superb!!! Gorgeous picture,bluetooth and feature packed, remote w/keypad slide out,internet apps,120hz-1080p,price,good looking, as I said, a great buy for a superb TV!
Cons NONE really- would love to have a backlit remote-
GREAT TV !!!
Summary This television is an excellent piece of TV/ Video gear !!!!! Bought it for the bedroom and it is SUPERB in every way. Check out Sam's Club on this one-- fantastic price ! AWESOME television. Gorgeous picture! The internet apps are just a great feature. Very easy set up- about 20 minutes--very logical layout.. The remote with the keypad slide out, is just super cool !!! The sound is exceptional for a thin TV of this size!!!
I am a studio musician/producer and that Vizio could get "this" nice of audio in a slim model is not bad. There are those who remark otherwise- to each his own- but, remember this Tv is 2 inches deep for goodness sake !!! It weighs 25 lbs and doesn't sound like a 190 pound wood cabinet TV- I have the audio routed through my bedroom home theater system too- but- the sound, for a 2" deep flat panel TV, is very good- AGAIN, CONSIDERING it's SIZE,
and OTHERS I have heard-it's very good !
(there are some REALLY BAD sounding ones out there...shop and audition.)
If you want/need more, simply get a soundbar to go with it - you will be very pleased with the overall performance of this LED TV and it's total ammenities.
So, to sum it up, THIS TV IS AWESOME--- for the bucks, SUPERB !!!!
Good job Vizio!!!
Look forward to the new 21:9 aspect ratio for the 2nd VIZIO purchase in the future!!!!
Pros Excellent picture! Love the dimming feature and the sound is great. Nifty remote/keyboard which is pretty intuitive about controlling your other devices only when appropriate. The Netflix, Twitter, eBay, Facebook and Pandora apps are nice, too.
Cons USB still inactive. Nitpicks mostly. A FREQUENT glitch is the tv freezing up. It goes unnoticed until you try to change channel/volume/etc (program oddly unaffected) but it requires unplugging the tv itself since even the side wheel won't respond.
Summary I would recommend the XVT323SV to anyone since it's well-rounded and easy to use. I'm just hoping they fix the USB and freeze-ups in an upcoming firmware update. I forgot to mention that the built-in wireless makes it just that much niftier -- I like to have EVERYTHING wired for best throughput & stability, but I haven't noticed a single hiccup in streaming Netflix HD content. The energy efficiency is mind-blowing compared to my old LG 26" or Dell 32" HDTVs. No heat emanates from this unit, unlike my other tvs which act like furnaces. Pick one up if you can, just remember to unplug it when it decides it doesn't feel like taking any orders.
Pros I like everything about this TV. It's the best one I've ever owned. Netflix, Vudu, Amazon VOD work without a glitch.
Cons None so far. USB outlets don't work yet but according to some reviews will be operational by the end of this year with a firmware update.
Summary Great TV for a great price. I bought it at Sam's Club for $598. I bought it to watch movies and TV shows in my garden as it requires no cable connections to stream TV programs and movies. I also use it as a computer screen with my Mac.I don't work for VIZIO and it's my first product I purchased made by them.

Pros Great internet connectivity
Cons I purchased the Vizio XVT323SV on 1/28/2011 from Sams Club.Last week a spider managed to crawl into the space between the exterior glass and the LED picture. I talked to Samsthey said that as I bought the TV >than 90 days ago&was within 1 yr mgr's
Summary Buy an LG or Samsung LED TV...stay away from Vizio
