VIZIO E480i-B2

 

When Panasonic's plasma TVs gave up the ghost last year, I immediately began wondering what 2014 TVs could possibly take their place as my go-to recommendation as the best combination of picture quality and value. In my CES preview, I wrote "Help me...

The models of the Vizio E series equipped with local dimming deliver superb picture quality for a very affordable price. The image evinces deep black levels with little to no blooming and great bright-room performance, and it provides for plenty of...

Color accuracy and video processing not quite as good as some competitors; poor sound quality; ho-hum styling; lackluster remote.

With picture quality that outdoes that of numerous more-expensive TVs, Vizio's E series likely represents the best value of 2014.

Excellent TV

 

I looked at almost every TV brand both on Best Buy and Tiger Direct. I was told Samsung was the best quality TV on the market. I found my Visio on sale here and bought it. I could have paid another $200.00 for a Samsung but am glad I didn't and got the...

Poor TV

 

I waited a while - saved money - to purchase a larger TV. I went with this one based on the price and value I was reminded about. First thing - I seem to have the hardest time using the remote control. I have to point it at a special, specific way to...

Stay Away from this product - Turns off randomly

 

I cannot tell you how strongly I recommend that you DO NOT BUY this tv under any circumstances. I had issues with one, exchanged it and had the exact same issues with the second. This tv will randomly turn itself off. Fastest way to replicate this is...

Vizio Tv Owner-Model E-480i-B2

 

I am pleased so far with my purchase, the slim design is attractive, the picture quality at 1080p is awesome. The picture settings are very versatile, which is convenient to optimize your preferred visual settings. If you are looking for a true smart...

lacks picture adjustments & more

 

I find the picture brash and in a month have not found any way to do a full adjustment to improve it. The remote on mine is frustrating at best. Any button you are trying to use goes back and forth with one touch. Example; going to previous channel, it...

48in. Vizio

 

I was very pleased with this TV. Only bad thing was, you have to point remote to the bottom left of TV. Sound quality was ok but, ended up buying Vizio 5.1 Sound bar and, that made it sweet. Nice quality picture. Make sure you are receiving 1080P for a...

Good picture. Bad sound. Tiny remote.

 

The picture is very good, with lots of adjustments for fine tuning; mostly unnecessary when using the "calibrated" factory setting. The sound is as bad as any TV I've ever heard. I had to check to be sure the speakers weren't still covered with...

Smart TV FAIL

 

We bought this TV in March 2014, we loved it, everything worked great. It has a fantastic picture and apps were working great. In August, the TV began turning itself off when watching Netflix or Amazon Prime video. We do not have cable, so Netflix and...

VIZIO smart tv might actually save you THOUSANDS

 

Bought this smart TV with the apps, including netflix, amazon, and HULU. We currently use UVERSE and pay probably $1000 a year for a basic cable package. Now with smart tv, we are gradually migrating to all streaming services and away from the hassle...
