Vizio E series: The TV for everybody

 

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 E43-C2

 

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...

Not too shabby!

 

TV was great, but I had purchased a refurbished unit, company was a nightmare, sent me 3 broken units and took 3 months to sort out before I finally asked for a refund. No reflection on the actually TV.

-Great blacks, no shadowing when the picture goes from bright to dark. Bright colors -Sound was good in my medium sized room. -Menus easy to navigate. -Netflix button on remote very convenient.

-When watching cable with HDMI hook-up, slightly struggles with input that was not high resolution, blurred the faces made them look like they were glowing. -Had trouble accessing computer over the wireless network. Was slow to load file pages. -Stand...

Surprising features, enhancements & uniformity for Series E = Entry level

 

Strongly recommended. The Vizio E43-C2 has a great combination of quality, design value and features. * NOTE: Some tech reviews point to sub-par color rendering according to gamma charts and spectral analysis. I am typically critical in this area—But,...

• Local dimming results in deep blacks • Shocking uniformity in color & saturation (see my comment) • Excellent motion index -- even w/sports and action (all but the fastest gaming) • Best price point of any TV in its class

• Remote is adequate; Not intuitive nor easy to navigate in the dark • Lacks HEVC / H.265 codec (latest movie-encoding standard). Hopefully, addressed in future ... software update. Meanwhile, transcode or connect PC, Chromecast or streaming box) • If...

Bought 6!!

 

I ordered these for work to display out on the show floor. 6 TVs needing to run different videos for the products being displayed. The instructions I was given was "go buy 6 - 42" smart TVs". They needed to have wired Ethernet connections and we needed...

Good Value Smart TV Ethernet AND Wi-Fi

You can rename the TV in settings, but on the network the TV name only displays VIZIO TV for all of them. Since we have 6 on the network and we can't rename them there is no way to know which TV you're sending which video to. TV cannot loop video from...

Great purchase

 

The TV was easy to connect to the wifi and everything works as it was advertised. I used an old wall mount I already had and installation was still easy.

Vizio E43

 

I bought what I found out to be the economy line of the Vizio for my friend. I have one M and one E at home. Very happy with both. This new 2015 line, and the E43 model had quality anything but economy - it is excellent.

I bought this for a friend that recently cut the cable and was using an antennae. Because the cable box was gone he had no way to route the audio through his stereo. His old TV did not have any audio out puts. Any way I have two Vizio TVs already and...

no cons for me
