I originally purchased the 40" Element TV and ended up returning it for this one. The picture quality is better, the picture seems much more stable, and the connections are easier to get to. I would like a single button control on the remote to switch between modes, or better yet, an auto-mode would be good. All that aside I am extremely happy with this set. Vizio made a believer out of me. A solid set for a very reasonable price.

I did a lot of research before buying an LCD TV. I call Sony, Samsung, and Vizio asking questions about their warranty coverage and so forth. When I got to the store, I was going to get the Sony '40 but the picture wasn't as good as the others. Samsung had the best picture, but it's also has the most problems than any other brand. The Sony was on sale for $628 and then went back to $699, but when I went to the store the price was still $628, so if you find a TV that's in the store be sure to call and see if the prices match. I took a chance with the Vizio and I was more impressed than I thought I would be. If something goes wrong, Vizio doen't send you a refurbished TV, but one that someone returned to the store. Vizio's do contain some Sony parts due to the fact that their TV's are made by AmTran and Foxconn which are companies that make LCD and Plasma TV's for other companies as well(Sony, LG, etc...).

I have been reading reviews on LCD's for about 2 weeks. The reviews scared me. The issue of 60hz versus 120hz refresh rate made me think I would not be happy with the 60hz LCD. It may not be quite as clear, but it is not bad. Also, consistent unfavorable reviews for the sound quality scared me. I think the sound is more than adequate. In fact it is very good. The picture on this thing is awesome. It exceeds my expectations and I would buy again.

Weve had vizio tvs for years and never had any problems, so when this went on sale for 548 we swooped it up and it works great. Picture looks great and there is no delay in switching channels like some of the other tvs. I would highly recommend it. Weve had it for a few weeks now and no probelms at all.

  • A. Directtv and dish will work ok, tv games like Wii don't work right. The refresh rate is to slow at 60mh. It has to have a least 120mh. The Wii leaves a trail behind the movement of the remote. It is also unsteady when trying to point the game remote.
