I say this at the bottom too, this write-up is simply my likes and some of the challenges I've found in owning this TV but all-in-all: I'M REALLY GLAD I BOUGHT THIS TV AND IT HAS BEEN PERFECT FOR WHAT I NEED AND USE IT FOR. Get the 24" if you're looking at the Vizio brand. Smaller screens (at least at the time of writing this review) DO NOT have control buttons on the back of the TV to turn it on and such. So you would always have to use a remote. With the 24" however - it's got the control buttons which was an essential feature in searching for TVs. It's a great TV for the price. Period. I'm extremely happy with the pictures quality and the pots that it has. It does what I need -- which is to be a second computer monitor -- it's main use becomes multitasking windows, watching movies, playing video games. The sound quality is below average. Not actually "bad", but it's not up to par with other tvs and devices out there. The TV stands up with a stand that hooks into the back. This is all right, but you can't change the tilt angle at all. Vizio - in this line of TVs- tried to make it smarter than it's capable of. Meaning: they have a lot of built in, auto-backlight sensor, auto-picture sensor -- but they're not good enough to actually work effectively... so at times you'll be watching a movie or viewing a darker image and it will either be too dark, or you'll see the picture start to very-slowly get brighter. This was pretty annoying --- however, just turn off the auto-backlight sensor (i think that's the one I turned off) and it stops trying to adjust the picture and things are fine. Not very advanced pre-set picture options for color and warmth and such -- these pre-sets seem to mostly be too dark or too off-color. I had to go in and fidget with this for an hour or so (way too long adjusting ANY picture) But they do have a custom selector screen where you can adjust color, warmth, brightness, contrast. This was too advanced for me though so I couldn't adjust these features individually to find a "Normal" look which I couldn't find in the pre-sets. Those are the challenges you'll find with this TV, but all-in-all --- I'M REALLY GLAD I BOUGHT THIS TV AND IT HAS BEEN PERFECT FOR WHAT I NEED AND USE IT FOR.
