VIZIO E50-C1

 

TVs with 4K resolution are falling fast in price, but they're still significantly more expensive than good old 1080p TVs. Unfortunately TV makers often reserve their best picture-enhancing features, such as local dimming , for the 4K models. Local...

The Vizio E series TVs with local dimming deliver very good picture quality for an affordable price. The image evinces deep black levels with little blooming, accurate color and great bright-room performance, and it provides for plenty of adjustments....

Dimmer highlights than some more expensive TVs; archaic software upgrade system; significant variation between models; poor sound quality; cheap-feeling remote.

If you're looking to maximize your TV dollar and don't care about 4K, it's tough to go wrong with the Vizio E series.

Vizio E50-C1 1080p LED TV

 

It's a clear winner when it comes to picture quality and screen space for the price. Darker scenes end up looking a bit flat and blacks can look as if there is a haze over them, but the uniformity is good. Colors also seem a tad bit washed out and...

The Vizio E50 is an excellent choice for an entry level TV. The “E” stands for “Entry” level after all. One attribute that makes the E-series compelling is the 12 active full array backlighting zones resulting in a more even distribution of...

Ghosts like crazy.

 

My last (no name) tv had ghosting issues in dark scenes and i was trying to get away from that by going for a name brand 120Hz tv and to my disarray this tv is far worse, their is ghosting not only in dark scenes but in light scenes also. Their is no...

Big The body of the tv Looks good Bright Screen Tv came in great condition, looks new Speakers sound good

The picture ghosts or motion blurs like crazy. This tv is a 60Hz tv they should not be allowed to advertise this as 120Hz.

Great Television for the Price

 

I would definitely recommend this and would purchase again, but my next will be 4K (probably a Vizio M-series)

Picture is amazing Minor adjustments only to get picture looking great Price is incredible for what you get- $379 for refurbished

No web browser in apps and not able to download one

Pretty Impressed!

 

I received my refurb in the mail a few days ago from a neweggflash sale. The box was unmarked which is great since it sat outside my house waiting for me to get home. The TV came in superior packaging, all the peel off plastic was on the TV. No dents,...

Amazing picture quality, great smart features, sleep timer, easy firmware upgrade and wifi setup. The remote control has a nice feel to it when pushing buttons and has a well thought out design.

Only a slight con, the remote control doesn't have a button for the sleep timer, you have to go into the menu and turn it on, nothing that will remove an egg just an extra step when you are in bed /lazy.
