Vizio M261VP Review – 26-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

Although this is not a TV which will be preferred by the true connoisseur of HDTVs, it gives a lot of features to be happy about. Keeping in mind the niche consumers for this display segment, Vizio has tried to keep some of the high end features while...

Vizio has also chosen to keep both the SRS TruSurround HD sound and TruVolume features in this TV. Because of them, you get to hear the dialogues and music clearly while being able to adjust the sound level to suit your ears. There are 2 HDMI only in...

TV died after 5 months. Nightmare getting cust. service

 

Would not buy this brand again.

Picture is o.k

Sound is poor. Customer service poor - tecnician argumentative, contradictory, unfamiliar with product. 3 wks without TV so far

Consumer review by:

Poor audio kills this product. Support can not help.

 

Do not buy this unless you see posts in the future that Vizio has corrected this problem with this units audio. Sound is worse than a tin can, no stereo out, and the headphone jack has the same issue so PC speakers with sub-woofer makes no difference....

Picture quality, online aps

Sound is worse than a tin can, no stereo out, the headphone jack has the same issue. No bass whatsoever. Vizio support makes like they are not aware of the problem, recommends you purchase their sound bar (list $149). Looks like optical audio out may solv

Overall, a great purchace

 

I bought this TV for roughly $400 (after tax and everything) and couldn't be happier. When I was in the store, the thing that really stood out for me was the extremely great contrast ratio (100,000:1). Most similarly priced models cut off at 50,000:1...

Apps ; Outstanding Picture quality ; Great Design/Build ; Decent Input/outputs ; 802.11n Wifi ; Did I mention Apps

I will agree that the audio isn't all that strong, but it's likely because it's so thin. I do wish it had a standard stereo out instead of a headphone jack ; Slightly Pricey for size class ; All ports face the right side which can be a little annoying

Great TV, Good amount of apps, wonderful screen

 

The reason I got this tv was because I had a 19'' LG lcd tv that was back-lit by fluorescent lights and every time the TV enter a dark scene the back lights would totally click off and you couldn't see any thing. But this TV with it's ... Expand full...

The tv is so light and thin easy to move and I got it all set up and playing within fifteen minutes. The wireless is great it has only got bugging once in five months, and for apps they have Netflix, Facebook, wikipedia, Youtube, Amazon video,Pandora

1. Remote without a keyboard so its difficult typing things out ; 2. The audio is poor but this is something one should expect on a tv half an inch thin
