Vizio E470i-A0


When Vizio told us many sizes in its mainstream E series would get the benefits of local dimming, I was intrigued. That feature, designed to dim the backlight in discrete sections to enhance black levels and contrast, is rare on today's LCD TVs and...

The Vizio E0i series shows deep black levels, a uniform screen, and commendable bright-room performance, making it a solid midlevel LCD TV. The Smart content selection is excellent. With its thin bezel, the set has a more compact, sleeker look than...

The set's local-dimming system can cause crushing, obscuring shadow detail; the dimming effect can be very obvious on some scenes; the so-called 120Hz refresh rate does nothing to improve picture quality.

The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling.

Vizio E470i-A0 Review


Vizio E0i series information: The review below is based on our time spent with the 42-inch E420i-A0 TV. However, the observations made also apply to the nine other models in this series. Samsung says that sets offer identical features (save weight and...

Good picture quality ; Relatively slim design ; Excellent Smart TV platform ; Great feature set ; Affordable

Minor white washout on select mediums ; Occasional jitter in fast-paced scenes ; Smart Dimming feature lowers picture quality

Those looking to move into the 1080p Smart TV arena without breaking the bank will find the Vizio E470i-A0 a formidable contender.

Not bad


Don't take the audio quality as a ding on Vizio. All TV audio output is pretty lame.

Cost. Quality is fine. Mine was refurbished which made it a great buy since the price was good yet the quality is same as new. The TV still has all the plastic protective wrap everywhere so I'm assuming it was DOA and then fixed. The only thing missing...

Audio is as iffy as you would expect to be from standard TV output. I added a Vizio speaker bar and it's nice now. Vizio apps are pretty incomplete compared to Samsung. I would like a UFC app for example

Didn't turn on


I ordered this TV online and had it shipped to the store. It arrived late and when I got it home, the TV didn't turn on. Very disappointed in Best Buy to say the least.


Poor customer service

Out of the box with no picture setting modifications, a great picture. Extra HDMI ports for my cable and blu-ray player and future accessories. Easy to integrate current surround sound with tv. Once the virtual keyboard was figured out to connect to my...

Good price for the quality!


I finally bought this TV when it was $50 off in June. I love the lightweight and easy internet set up for this TV. The picture quality and speed are exceptional for the price.

thin frame and low energy output

the screen isn't non glare like my 42" vizio

Remote Stopped Working :(


This is a great TV at first. The wifi is great, great picture (at least for the price) and the sound is acceptable. No problems there...but after 3 months the remote stops working. Without the remote, you can't access any of the smart TV options such...
