VIZIO E48-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...

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.

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...

Nice TV. Useless warranty for Canadians

 

I would not recommend for Canadian customers. I inquired about a warranty replacement but the refurb company can only ship to a U.S. address. Not much of a solution. That was my second unsuccessful warranty claim for a product purchased from Newegg.ca....

- For the most part, it works as it should - I don't have anything bad to say about image quality. - It's great that it supports Plex

- Netflix doesn't work for me. A call to Netflix didn't fix it. Appears to be a firmware issue. Thankfully there are other ways to watch Neflix. - The stand it was shipped with didn't fit. Annoying but I just needed them until I got the wall mount up.

Great TV. Stand not what we wanted.

 

I like this TV. We bought the 48" unit. It is bigger than the 40" we had. It is clear and we love the smart features. Although I do miss the extra features of my apple TV, but I don't need it anymore. The TV remote in awesome. One button takes you to...

The picture is pretty clear and I'm happy with it. Set up was easy. It's a very light TV in weight.

Nice tv...smarter than me.

 

This is my first smart tv. In the past I never cared for the feature but decided to give it a try. Now I will never get another "dumb" tv (lol) again!!

Great value for a great tv!

 

This was purchased for a bedroom tv. We have a 7 year old Vizio we have been very happy with so this was one of the brands we considered. We wanted 120Hz for real - not a made-up standard that claimed that quality. The price was what sold us, and so...
