  • A. According to the little paper note my TV arrived with, these Vizios are refurbished by The Recon Group Inc. They have a long track of arriving not just scratched, but broken. I don't know who the people behind The Recon Group are, but according to their web site they also sell mountains of garbage electronics pieces for very cheap (like $100), and after getting 2 out of the 3 TVs I ordered broken, I lost confidence in their "refurbishing" skills.

  • A. Yes it is Factory Refurbished and I was hesitant at first but I told myself "hey what a deal, don't pass on this one". I ordered it and was surprised to find that there were no defects and looked brand new!! Performs perfectly and I am really happy with this set. Still unsure? well so was I. So I included a 3 year warranty for pennies a day. So I have a Great TV and I am protected as well. I forgot all about the savings for a LED Smart TV at this price. So keep looking for a better deal and hope that this one does not disappear when you come back to get it.

  • A. Most of these "refurbished" units are just someone's returned junk pawned off on you. My TV was NOT refurbished. No one had ever broken the seals. It had mounting screws still sticking out of it and one was stripped out. They're just reselling returned units and you don't ever know if you're getting refurbished or returned.

These refurbished TVs are supposed to have "minor imperfections", but according to my experience as well as numerous reviews from other customers, chances are they will arrive broken! From the 3 TVs are ordered, 2 were broken, not just scratched. Not sure if they are shipped this way, or they break along the way because of the extremely poor packaging. One of the TVs I ordered arrived with a big tear in the liquid crystal screen, another one had a crack along the bottom and a gap where the stand neck would normally go, as if the stand was ripped off it. Also, the front panel was slightly ajar from the back panel and could not be tightly closed. See attached pics. About the TV features of the E500i-A1: the sound was horrible (probably because of the crack on the bottom, where the speakers are) and the Color Enhancement did not work: setting it to anything would surround anything green or blue (eg. water, sky, trees) with a greenish aura. I had one TV delivered home, the other to the store. I had to arrange for the TV to be brought home by a friend with a truck, since my car is too small. The return took weeks. For one TV I started the TV 2 weeks ago, and am still waiting for the carrier to pick it up. Such a hassle, I would not do it again! In conclusion, these TVs are not worth the savings.

The television was cracked on a corner. You can tell they tried sticking it back together. The refurbish process was done very sloppy. Even though the television is cracked its features are really excellent.

The most important thing you have to read about refurbished items is the review left by the the prior buyer because that's you judgement call for buying or not. In my case I knew That the TV it was broken Externally wich I fixed with CRAZY GLUE LOL. Cause it was a little piece of the screen frame on the left top corner that had nothing to do with its funtioning. Then check TV features from A To Z mine was perfect CRYSTAL CLEAR. IN MOVIES . The only problem I had was Shipping and Handling cause UPS HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WAS A TV INSIDE THE BOX (That was the person handeling the box told me). TAKING A LOOK INSDE THE BOX: NO FRAGILE SIGN AT ALL, NOT ENOUGH TAPE ON THE TOP, NO ARROWS TO SIDE IT UP, GOOD PROTECTION ON THE BOTOM BUT CERO ON THE TOP .. UPS Driver: What is in the box? Me: Big screen TV . UPS: Are you serious? Could you check it if everything is in there? Me: Yeah looks good I just need to turn it. on thank you. Let me sign of receive it..

Seen many reviews for this product. Some had great things to say about this refurbished TV. Those that did not complained of the product being damaged and missing parts. I ordered the product using the site to store delivery option and was completely satisfied. It looked as if it was brand new out of the box. One could immediately tell that it was not a brand new TV as it was packaged in a plain box. I immediately inspected the product while at the store to my satisfaction. I have bought many refurbished products and find that they work just like a brand new item out of the box. Only difference is that a part may have been replaced or it was returned to the manufacturer unhappy with the product. The great thing is it still comes with the manufactures warranty. I would recommend for anyone looking for a value to purchase a refurbished product. It is a win win for the company and comsumer.

I don't usually buy refurbished equipment because it seems like more trouble than it is worth. I was proven correct with this order. I picked up the TV at Wal-Mart and thought I should open the box because it had holes punched through the cardboard in several places. I decided to just wait til I got home. When I opened the box, the stand, the bag of remote control and the base were loose in the box. The only cushioning for the TV was four, expanding foam bags in the corners and a sheet of plastic over the screen. Sure enough, the screen was cracked. I took it right back to the store and received a refund.
