Nice TV with lots of features
6/19/2013

Customer review by Custombill

4.0 stars 6/19/2013 by Custombill

This is a nice TV with lots of features once you figure them all out and a few quirks it seems to have. Picture Quality is very good and the sound seems fine. Lots of apps and options, but no QUERTY remote which makes accessing them a pain sometimes, but you can use a wireless computer keyboard plugged into the USB port as I did. Some of the apps such as YouTube seem to lock up occasionally after much use. It has WI-fI connectivity, but at least for me, I had to end up running a CAT 5 ethernet cable directly from my router to the TV as streaming video via the WI-FI was too slow and performance was terrible. In my case my router was at the other end of the house a few rooms away so that may have been the problem, even though the TV showed a good signal strength. A good feature is the audio out jacks, but would be nice if it had a second set of audio in jacks also. This is my first smart TV experience so I have nothing to compare to, just my actual observations so far. Hope this helps.

I bought a 42" Vizio in May 2012 at my local Walmart. We have had a great experience with it, which is why I chose to buy another one for the basement. The new set has a more streamlined appearance and updated apps. My only issue was with delivery. After finding that the two closest stores were out of this model, I got impatient and ordered it off Walmart.com. It came off the FedEx truck with a shattered screen. I was surprised that there was no addtional protection for shipping. The only thing between the TV and the outside world was a slim piece of cardboard and a thin sheet of foam. On the bright side, my local Walmart store had the TV in stock when I called and was able to go and make a return. I got my new TV and it looks/sounds great. In all fairness, I believe this was more of a FedEx issue than a Walmart issue, but I learned a lesson. From now on I will use Walmart.com to review products, but I will go to the store for fragile items.

TV Great. Box lacking cables/connectors

Customer review by TheGoodAndBad

4.0 stars 11/27/2013 by TheGoodAndBad
by TheGoodAndBad

I guess I would have to agree with most of the reviews I have seen. It is a quality TV product and the TV meets my expectations and consistent with previous reviews. BEWARE!!! My greatest surprise and dissapointment was the complete absence of any connectors or cables. The single cable included with this TV, was the power cable to connect to A/C power. And if material cost savings was Visio's intent, they could have omitted that, and saved a few more cents if they had made their connector on the TV compatible with the typical standard cable used for most A/C wall to equipment that I see on most other electronic equipment. I personally have 15-20 of those on hand. But Visio omitted any other cables or connectors (Coaxial, Optical, RJ, or any. Nadda, zilch, zero, none !!!!! Again, Fortunately, I had HDMI and Audio connectors with my Directv box, Sound system, and DVD players, and did not have to make an UNEXPECTED trip back to purchase a cable to setup and use the VISIO TV.

Best TV I've seen on the market!

This is the best TV I've seen on the market. Easy to maneuver. Didn't have to adjust any of the picture settings, all the channels were perfect in color, contrast, clarity, and depth. I have seen models that cost twice what this one did, and their pictures weren't half as good. This is the cream of the crop. I will always get VIZIO TV's from now on. I am totally impressed. The LED makes the colors and picture much crisper, and there isn't the blurring of background images you get with other models. I can easily access you tube through my WIFI to my computer, and bring up an on screen keyboard to click on letters to type into the search, and it's easy as texting to use. I was surprised as to how much material on you tube comes in hi-def. You can also do Netflix and other apps. The audio is about average when you add volume, but with an audio system , sounds amazing. A truly great product for the money. Look no further.

I bought this TV for my daughter for Christmas this year. I wanted a smart TV that she could run Netflix off of easily. When I got it home I unboxed it and set it up to make sure everything worked right so we still had time to exchange it if there was anything wrong. The TV was super easy to connect to wifi and set up. When you turn on the TV it walks you through it all. Being the first smart TV we have bought I wanted to see all it had to offer. The TV was easy to navigate through and had more things you could do then I had expected. The picture when running Netflix wasn't as clear as I had expected but very well could of been my Internet connection and not the TV. The sound wasn't bad sounding in a bedroom. I don't know how it would sound in a big open room though. Overall I was very pleased with this TV and if it continues to preform well over then next couple months I plan on buying another to replace my bedroom TV.

This is my second Vizio....the first one I bought was too small (29"), but I still have it! It is also a smart tv...I now have a 42" Vizio Smart TV. The TV does take a little bit longer to turn on than most other tvs I have owned, but I just had to get used to it. This is a great value. I shopped around. I ordered the tv on a Tuesday and it arrived on the Friday. AMAZING. I am a 44 year old, single chick that had the tv hooked up to my surround sound bar, cable, wireless internet....in less than 45 minutes of receiving the tv at my doorstep. LOVE IT! Instructions were very clear. Hex wrench comes with the tv....stand took me 3.5 minutes to put together. You won't be disappointed. Picture is clear, so easy to access Netflix, the remote is the same as my other Vizio. Per another review, I also purchased a BRAND New Original VIZIO Internet Qwerty keyboard remote for VIZIO E420i-A1 E500i-A1 E601i-A3 E320i-A0 E601i-A3 LCD LED TV for $11.00 plus $5 shipping from amazon....but I haven't opened it yet, as I haven't needed it. Again, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy.

I know some people are serious aficionados and maybe this tv not for them. I love it. The colour is great. It was so easy to hook up. Three 'complaints'. One, I listened to reviews for this and other flat tvs and ordered a sound bar. It is so not necessary. We're not deaf so level 30 works well #35 when baby insists on making noise#. We live in an apartment and 50 would disturb neighbours can't imagine turning up to 100. Two, granted this is due to my own ignorance, I didn't know I needed to order a separate cable for HD. Items let you know if batteries are included or not it would have been nice if they had done so for that. But gotta say even without the HD the picture is phenomenal. Three, again this is due to my own ignorance, I can't figure out how to hide all the chords. Obviously I will have to go on the web and ask the world to help me with that. Again, this TV is great. Nice colour. Sound great #my home is not a theatre so I don't need the walls to rattle, I just want to be able to hear and enjoy#, the teenager loves the widgets. I love that I don't have to hook up an LCD to watch Netflix and HuluPlus.

I purchased this this tv for my bedroom. I selected a Smart tv with WiFi because I only wanted it to watch Netflix and not to hook up to my cable service. It arrived as expected at Sit to Store, and was in very good condition. It was easy to unpack and attach the stand. It was also very simple to get it to talk to my WiFi, BUT even though it was receiving a good signal from my router (also on the same floor, but in another room) it said my signal was not strong enough to stream movies. I would get into a show maybe 5 min and it would freeze, not even buffer. I ended up moving a SMART DVD player into my room so I could get Netflix. Other than that the picture is Fantastic and the Sound is Wonderful. I would still recommend this tv, just be prepared to add a streaming device in case you encounter the same issue.

We ordered this TV on line at 7 PM after checking out specs on numerous TV's & Brands & it was ready for pick up at our local Walmart store by 8:30 the next morning. Took less then 10 minutes to set up TV & plug in CD player. We only have a cheap $35.00 antenna & not cable, but we have over 60 channels available to us & "eye popping" color. This is our second Visio TV & we were impressed with the color & pictures of our previous purchase several years ago, but the picture & colors on this TV is incredible. The picture is visible & very clear even up close to the right or left of the TV, adjusts to ambient light automatically, & the very narrow outside frame allowed us to buy a larger screen TV for our older TV cabinet. It gives a big screen experience at a very low cost.

This is a great TV at a great price. The model was given high reviews by CNET and Digital Trends and it lived up to its 2nd place rating. The colors and sharpness are as reported and the sound is fine. We have it in a 14 x 20 family room and you do not need a sound bar. The only problem I have is using the standard remote to type searches into the Smart TV screens - MAJOR pain. I solved the problem by purchasing a New Original VIZIO Internet Qwerty remote with Keyboard for only $11.75 from Sourcing Remote. This is the same remote you get with the higher prices M series by VIZO. The remote is just like the original but with a full keyboard on the back - what a time saver. Do not why VIZIO does not make this standard on all Smart TVs. With this addition the TV is an truly great package.
