I hesitated a bit about purchasing a refurbished television, any size tv, but, well, what the heck; Nothing ventured, Nothing gained, right? So, I bought the Vizio E500AR 50" 1080p 60Hz Class LCD HDTV, Refurbished tv, for a whopping $429.00. I had to pay a total of $2.50 to have it delivered to my home. That's right, folks. $2.50. NOT $250.00!!!! (The FedEx driver even took it up the stairs and directly into my living room.) It was very simple hooking up to my satellite connections, speaker sound bar and within 30 minutes I was sitting back, drinking a cold Coors Light and enjoying the History Channel. The feedback on this unit is mostly negative. I, however, appear to have been a very lucky camper. I wouldn't hesitate going through this transaction again. Simple, flawless, quality and, most importantly, VERY Inexpensive. Thanks Walmart. Keep the prices low and you got a customer.

When I opened the box I saw a large dent in the rear casing. This didn't bother me because I would never notice it in daily operation. When I plugged it in I saw what I assume is the backlight shining thru BRIGHTLY in two areas of the TV. Totally unwatchable. I can't believe that anyone bothered to check the performance of this "refurbished" TV. Returning such a large item is a real pain. An honest associate shared with me that he doesn't believe Walmart checks refurbished TVs before they place them up for sale. These are just TVs that are returned, reboxed, and resold. Very disappointing.

Mine arrived today in a plain box with no indication that a tv was inside. I found out that tv's must not ship well like that because my screen was shattered. Had it for a whole 2 hours before I had to lug it to Walmart. Fun night. Thought I scored a deal.

The TV has a defect in the middle of the screen. A small black spot that is very irritating while viewing. The shipping packaging was intact with no signs of damage & I conclude the defect was there before packing. Also, no mounting hardware was provided in the package.

I bought this on Cyber Monday and I didn't realize I was purchasing a refurbished TV until I had already paid for it. I hoped for the best and all in all the TV is in good condition, however right in the bottom of the screen, smack-dab in the middle, there's a 1 inch wide, 2 inch tall section of the screen where the pixels are dead. I decided to just keep it since it's at the bottom and it doesn't effect the picture too much. However I'll never buy refurbished again.

Walmart shipping has to be the slowest shipping in the US, but I knew that before I ordered this tv. When the tv finally arrived, I immediately opened it and plugged it in. Within five seconds I saw what I feared most, a DAMAGED SCREEN. I didn't waste time sending the tv back and waiting on another, I just purchased a brand new tv from the store here and for the trouble I went through, a manager discounted the tv. At least I have warranty now.
