I switched from my old CRT TV (yep, really) to this one recently, what a difference. It has forward facing speakers so the sound is very good, and the picture quality, especially on the 1080 stations is just beautiful. The difference between CRT and digital is pretty amazing.

It has an easy to use remote, setting up is easy, and if you're a newbie like me (any left?), more intricate setting up like subtitles and such takes a min. or so but it's pretty straight forward.

I know there are much more expensive brands and TV's with more bells and whistles but if you want 26" with very good sound and beautiful picture quality, this is a great choice.

BUYER BEWARE: Vizio will not honor warranty if you purchase "from an unauthorized reseller." And good luck determining which sellers are authorized before you buy! Our set developed a line of dead pixels three months after we bought it. Vizio tech support determined that it was indeed a warranty-covered flaw and agreed to exchange it for a new unit. Then, two hours later they called to renege on the agreement, asserting that the Amazon third party dealer we purchased from was "unauthorized." As for Amazon, it refused to help because warranty issues are not part of the alphabet in their "A-Z Guaranty." I have no idea if Vizio's warranty exclusion is industry standard. But in my opinion it exposes a serious flaw in Amazon's business model if customers, searching for lowest prices on a given item, are not warned that by purchasing through Amazon.com, you may be voiding the manufacturer warranty. In future I, for one, will think twice before buying any electronic or other consumer product from Amazon.com.

Contrast ratio seems to be around 1200:1 when comparing it to my other LCDs with known contrast ratios. Forget about "dynamic" contrast ratios. The term is almost meaningless, & a gimmick. Speaking of gimmicks this set is loaded with almost useless gimmicks or features that sound good in writing, but just make the TV look & sound terrible if you use them. The factory picture mode presets must have be made by a blind person. All of them make the picture blurry, & over saturated with color to the point all flesh tones look bright blurry deep orange. The overall picture scene looks like it was shot under those ugly yellow-orange sodium-vapor streetlights.

It would have been nice if at least 1 or 2 of the picture mode presets looked fair.

The good news is if you use the custom settings, you can make the picture look as good, clear, & sharp as any good TV... as long as you don't need a super-bright picture. Pushing the brightness or contrast too high will result in an over washed, over pushed picture with poor color, & people looking cartoon-like. I suggest contrast & brightness settings of 33-50 for most evening viewing, but no higher than 50 or you'll loose a lot of quality. Color at 28, sharpness at 17.

LEDs get dimmer over time the harder you push them, & the more you use them. So a lower back-light setting will make your LEDs stay bright longer. I currently have the LED back-light set at 40, & I don't recommend leaving it higher than 60 very long.

Set adaptive luma off, it's terrible. Set color enhancement off too. In the custom color temp settings, R gain 70, G gain 50, B gain 53, R offset 53, G offset 50, B offset 54.

Noise reduction off, but for a real grainy or blocky picture it helps a little on high. Ambient light sensor off.

This is the second Vizio TV I have owned and so far both are trouble free. The picture on this set is gorgeous as is the sound. The connections are adequate and I am very pleased. It is lightweight and easy to set up, as well. I was a little hesitant with only two other reviews so vastly different from each other. It is pretty evident that the negative review was due to a defective "lemon" which can happen with any product.

I purchased the Vizio from Electronica Direct and am pleased with both the tv and the vendor. The shipping was very quick ( 4 days from California to NYC) and the package arrived in the same condition as if I had just picked it up at a neighborhood store. The TV picture and sound are great. I use it in my bedroom and felt I did not need 1080p and my instinct was correct. Would gladly buy again from them.

The Vizio E261VA 26-inch television may look good at first, but the actual picture quality is inferior to more recognized brandname models like Sony or Samsung. The screen looks fine when viewed from eye level, but the second you look at the screen from a higher or lower angle, the brightness, contrast, and color change significantly. Even when viewed from the correct height, the contrast is average at best, and I'm saying that after having tried all the built in picture options including the custom setting that I tinkered with for nearly half an hour. The one positive thing that can be said about the Vizio is that the sound quality from the built in speaker is excellent. However, that is no excuse for the poor screen quality.

After reading some of the reviews and found this in a box store for more money I bought it through Amazon. Did get the unit in just 3 days and mounted it in my camper, after getting the camp site all set up the following weekend I turn on the Vizio and the power antena and did a quick set up and the picture was great!!! The sound was very good as well! Good Job!!
