Picture Distorted!

We bought this TV because we had never heard of any complaints about the Vizio line. After hooking the TV up and watching about 3 hours, the screen began distorting. Not just the average "screen shifting" if auto picture is on.. the faces of people were blurred and glowing. Anything with a light area in the picture was distorted and glowing. We tried changing all of the picture settings and nothing fixed it. Thought maybe it was our cable so we turned the Xbox on and it blurred out on that as well. We only use HDMI hookups for all of our inputs, so it wasn't from lack of quality hookup lines. Taking it back and getting a different brand. Very disappointed in this TV.

We purchased this TV online a few days ago and picked it up at the store a couple of hours later....really liked that! From what we've seen so far, this is one really nice TV at a decent price. We bought this to replace a 46 inch Westinghouse that we bought two days after Christmas last year at Target and it no longer works after 10 months. (NOTE: If you are reading this, you are more than likely looking to purchase a television - DO NOT BUY ANY WESTINGHOUSE TV!!! You will regret it, regardless of how much money you may save.) This TV has a beautiful picture, with a lot of different preset video settings. Very little tweaking done on our part. It has plenty of inputs for satellite/cable, blue ray player, game console, etc. The only draw back is the audio, but I think it's still a little better than most of the sets these days. We hooked it up to the Pioneer sound system and feels like you're in a movie theater! All in all, you really can't go wrong with this Vizio!

A fine TV. Good picture at a great price. I've seen some reviews complaining about what the TV doesn't have; I'm not sure what one expects for under $600 dollars. Compared to what existed at this price just 5 years ago, it's a steal. Good stereo sound (unless you expect booming theater surround sound from a basic TV), good picture, enough input and output connections that should satisfy most basic needs (3 HDMI inputs, a USB, a 3.5mm stereo output, coax cable input, a set of RCA type component inputs, a couple more types I've forgotten now). Bought this as an upgrade for my folks to view cable TV/DVR/DVD/Netflix in high quality HD format, I'm very satisfied. It's not a "Smart" TV, but spending a mere $88 more on a nice new WiFi BluRay DVD player took care of that. Should have bought something like this years ago (but glad I waited because this was a great deal).

I did my homework when shopping for a new TV. The Vizio brand was less expensive and was a recommended purchase from people I know. Picked this up at Walmart because of the price. Set up was easy. I had a concern about putting it on a tv stand vs wall mount but the base once connected to the tv provided a good balance and is sturdy enough to hold this 50" model. Overall, I'd purchase this brand and would highly recommend this brand to a friend. Sound quality I find not that great so you might want to consider purchasing the sound bar which I may do in the near future.

Great value for a 50". Less than $600 for 1080p w/ good sound and 3 HDMI. The WiFi and Internet browsing would be nice but not at twice the price. Very happy with purchase.
