This is a great TV. I have the 32" but its 60hz. I went with the 42" and the 120hz makes a big difference. The picture is clear and crisp. The colors are bright and the dark is very very watchable with those dark night scenes. This is a great buy and I would compare or rather say this sets the standard for other TVs like samsung, sony.
The TV is a steal and you wont be dissapointed. The internet apps are great and the HD is fantastic. Sound is great and at times i think it sounds like its really in the room
TV is wonderful, did alot of research prior to purchase as well as received recommendations on the Vizio and it is definitely the quality I expected.
This is a gem. Stylish. Well made. Excellent picture. The biggest surprise is the sound. I was able to eliminate a designer brand extra speaker. Three less wires to tangle with is an extra plus!
These units have bad mother boards. The entire line. Purchased three. Two have been returned to Wal-Mart and replaced with a Samsung. When they get about 1 1/2 years old or so is when it will hit. Wal-Mart has on file over 200 complaints. You can go on the web and see hundreds more. If you got one that is still working it will get you sooner or later. If you purchased from Wal-Mart you are ok. If from somewhere else good luck. Wal-Mart is a class act and stands behind their products. You will get nothing from Vizio. Thanks Wal-Mart for your help.
I did extensive research on buying just the right television for the amount of money that I was willing to spend. Of course I hadn't bought a television in over 15 years. So this was quite a "television culture shock" especially on the features. However, I'm very pleased and I would recommend this product. I was a little disappointed at the time that it was available for home shipping. I had to pick up from the store; however, everyone was very nice and friendly.
I've seen the complaints on the reviews and took it all into account when buying this TV. I've had it for a few weeks now and am completely satisfied with it. Our apartment's living room isn't very large and we have neighbors so the sound is great! I can get why people complain but if you have a small space it's great The quality of hooking up my computer to it and using it as a DVD player has been phenomenal. I also saw the complaints about the wireless and I agree it is an issue. But I ended up hooking up my TV by ethernet to my wireless modem and it's ridiculously fast. Netflix is amazing. I'm very pleased with my purchase!
After 6 months i began to have problems. Vizio tech could not resolve problem and sent me a REFURBISHED one. Again the sound volumn changed by itself, a permanent black line appeared on the screen and never went away. I contacted Vizio and explained the problem. They advised me that the TV replacement was not fit for return and offeren to send me yet another refurbished TV. Reluctantly I said yes if all the money I paid for the 2 year warranty was transferrable. The rude email responder said it was not transferrable and said the could send me a check for 4 hundred some odd dollars if I wanted. I said "SEND ME MY MONEY". Customer service is very poor. At no time did I receive a NEW tv replacement. Warranty work is performed by and outside contractor and a different department so you get thr run around.
I have had three of these TV's and they have all had the same issue. The HDMI outlet or outlets stop working. Only 1 time has the TV stop working within the first 6 months so I could return it to walmart without having to be charged but the next 2 times were a different story. If you don't want a headache, I would suggest getting a different type of TV. I have no issues with the picture and sound but when the HDMI outlets stop working, hooking up multiple game systems and a cable box at the same time can not be done.
Took it out of the box, easy setup to the network and ran great for two days then the remote stopped working. You can't do anything with it. Wouldn't work with universal remote either. It's something with the TV itself. Coincidentally we bought two Vizio TVs, one for the kids room and that remote stopped working the day before!. Taking them both back tot he store.
Do your googling! This is a VERY common problem with Vizio TVs.
I have a 37" VIZIO in my bedroom and just loved the quality, so decided to get this 42" for my family room when the old SONY gave out. This has such great features and the screen is SO clear! The SMART TV is new to me and absolutely love it! I have VUDU and HULU and other programs that are loaded on it and just love it! You will NOT go wrong with this brand of TV, no matter what size you get!!
I had been doing research for a new TV and decided to go with a Wi-Fi ready one. Vizio had the best price on the market for a 1080p 120Hz HDTV. I am not disappointed with the picture or quality. It was very easy to set up, and even though the remote seems small, it is easy to use and has everything you need. My one disappointment is the Internet Apps, I know they are in their infantcy and the manufacturer is influenced by these Apps providers, but I would like to surf the web and be able to save favorites (there is a lot of free TV on the internet) and with the built in keyboard that Vizio provides thu its remote, it could be done. I hate cable and their prices!
Ilove it .It"s beautiful and makes my apartment so up to date. I'm 82years old and the picture and sound are both clear and bright.
Very good TV - easy to set up and great picture. Have had it for two weeks - took no time to unpack and hook-up.
I originally purchased a Sanzo and boy am I glad I returned it and got the Vizo...The BEST Tv on the Market. I have a larger one in the living area and I purchased the 41 inch for the bed room. I Jut love the vizo's products.
I really like it I was amazed with all it can do. I found it a little complicated since I am not a tech type person so it's taking me a little longer to use all of it's features. Looks like there is some really great tech support but I haven't accessed it yet.
I did allot of research into buying a new TV. It is true that the sound on this TV does not blow you away but it is ample unless you are really death. I use it on level 30 out of 100 and it is plenty loud. If I watch a movie or play a game I might turn it up a little. It is always an option to buy some surround sound pretty cheap if you need something to blow you away.
The picture quality is exceptional in comparison to two Samsung TV's I have recently watched. One Samsung was better but probably cost 6x as much. The other was probably not as good and I bet cost double the price of this one.
The one thing that did annoy me way that I paid more for 120 refresh rate and using PS3 it is evident that it does not refresh great all the time. This is hardly noticeable and the same for all TV's in this 120 range but I had hopped after reading about 120 it would be unnoticeable.
It is also important to remember that people only leave comments if something goes wrong. I had read that the HDMI outlets break on the back but not for me touch wood. I often change from PS3 to Lap Top and all is ok.
I have also had no problem with the remote, I bet people eat junk and mess it up which would happen with any remote.
I also aired on the side of caution and bought the 3 year warranty, now I have it i'm sure nothing will go wrong.
I bought a brand "new" visio tv and would advise anyone ,DO NOT BUY ANYTHING visio, tv. I bought mine two (2) years ago and now it is in the yard with a blown sustain system,and I called the home office of visio and they told me tough luck,should have bought a extented warrantty,trie to get them to help and they just laughed at me litterly.DON'T BUY PLEASE LISTEN
I love everything about this TV. It is super easy to set up and operate. The WiFi features are wonderful and also easy to operate. Great picture, great sound...everything about it is just excellent.
Great Television and also being computer compatible it makes for a very enjoyable 42 Inch monitor.
Great tv! Love the internet apps!
