Vizio E2VLE review: Vizio E2VLE

 

The question posed by the Vizio E2VLE series comes down to priorities. If your priority is getting scads of streaming video and audio content delivered wirelessly to your TV as cheaply as possible without having to use an external box, it's worth a...

The Vizio E2VLE delivers plenty of features for the price, including a 120Hz refresh rate, Smart TV and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Its streaming video and audio selection is excellent. It evinced accurate colors and its matte screen helps picture...

Compared with other budget TVs the 32VLE showed even lighter black levels, and it failed to properly handle 1080p/24 sources. Its Smart TV interface can seem dated, as can its styling, even for a non-LED-based LCD TV.

The Vizio E2VLE series may appeal to budget shoppers who just want Smart TV, but subpar picture quality hurts its chances against the tough competition.

"What's with the humming noise?"

 

I needed a new HD t.v. after my Samsung DLP suffered a meltdown after almost 10 years of loyal service. Being impressed with the picture at such a relatively low price and interested in checking out the new to me "smart" t.v. features, I chose the...

Nice picture quality for the price. Easy startup from box to viewing. Smart T.V. features easy to use.

Makes a odd humming noise very noticable during low light scenes, remote has very small buttons.

"Buy another brand!"

 

We bought this tv, and have been very happy with the picture quality, but the wifi connection has not worked. We have already had a replacement, and the same thing, only this time hard wire doesn't work either. Save the money and just get a TV... I am...

nice picture

no internet connection. Customer service is ridiculous...
