Lasted 1 Year

 

This was a refurb with a 90 day warranty from Vizio. Got what I paid for. This is now 2 large screen LCD's that failed much to early in my house. No wonder extended warranty business is booming. I don't abuse them and don't game on them. Just...

Great picture, great features. 5 eggs for the picture quality.

Lasted 1 year, almost to the day. Screen went dark while audio continued. Did the Vizio reset process, no joy. Minus 3 eggs for the longevity.

Everything I Hoped For

 

Overall I am thrilled now that Ive finally purchased a more modern tv. I was a little skeptical because it was recertified but after the minute i opened the box i knew newegg delivered. I would recommend this deal to anyone of my friends or family and...

An awesome price first off, I almost thought it was to good to be true. Out of the box I thought this thing was a monster. It makes my tiny bedroom seem like a theater. The apps are pretty good if you use facebook and twitter a lot but i think the most...

Like the other reviews have already stated, the remote is nothing special. The buttons take a good press to respond, although mine softened up a bit toward the end. Its not what i would desire but its not a deal breaker at all.

Amazing So Far

 

Going from a 19" Tube that I've had for 5+ years to this is just amazing. I also use it as a monitor (went from 20" LCD) and it works flawlessly.

Couldn't even tell that it was used ; 4 HDMI's = Amazing

Remote: Kinda have to push hard to make it work ; Sensor: You have to aim the remote directly at it (Not even middle will work, maybe it's just me)

Very solid TV and value

 

I would recommend this deal to anyone!

Easy setup, everything came like it was new, TV looks immaculate, both cosmetic as well as picture quality. Apps work great and the hookups on the side are easy to get to.

The remote buttons are kinda stiff. This is noticeable when trying to input letters on the screen.

Great TV for the price.

 

Overall, the TV is great. I LOVE that WiFi is built in, compared to some brands that require an extra $100 adapter. The apps auto update so I'm hoping a lot of them end up working out better in the future. I will be upgrading the remote soon.

The TV is great for what it can do, and for the price. I now own 2 Vizio TVs and the price vs quality can't be beat. I really wanted a Panasonic plasma but for what I paid for this I'm happy.

As others have said, here and on other sites, the Apps suck. Pandora works great for me, Facebook freezes every time. The remote is by far the worst part of the TV, it sucks so bad compared to my other 3 year old Vizio TV. I read you can get a...

Nice for the price

 

For this price and the specs of the tv you can't go wrong. Built in wifi, four hdmi v1.4 ports, Vizio apps, 5ms response time and more. Good job Vizio.

I got this tv yesterday. The tv came in like new condition with all the plastic wrapping and all the accessories. I got this tv for my gaming room and it will be used mainly for gaming. I setup the network without any problems, setup Netflix without...

None. I'll write another review if something goes wrong with this bad boy.

Wish it worked

 

I will RMA this exactly one time, and if the next T.V. is infected with the same horrible picture, it will be my last large item purchase from newegg.com. I understand that not every item is going to be perfect upon arrival, but when you save for an...

Easy to set up, nice interface, apps run smoothly

Within 5 minutes of setup, I noticed streaking red lines appearing in my picture. I changed from antenna to netflix, and noticed the same random red lines and boxes randomly appearing in picture. Switched to Blu-Ray, yep, more red artifacts. Now I'm...
