First off the TV functions good for the most part. The screen is comparable in sharpness and lighting to the M series and it has a semi-matte finish which is a great improvement over how reflective they used to be. I really wanted to like the TV and if it were not for the folowing items I would have gladly kept it and enjoyed it.

The reason for this review is to focus on why I cannot keep the TV and it is going back (and to see if anyone else has the same issues). Amazon has aready exchanged the TV for a new one of the same model and both TVs that I revcieved had the same clicking and humming issues (so I assume the issue may be wide spread).

1.) When the TV is off, as other users have noted in their review there is a constant clicking coming from what I suspect is the power supply (the rate is about 10 clicks per second). Depending on how well you can hear its very noticible when behind the TV, If the room is quiet (its in our bedroom) I can hear it from about 10 feet away. The clicking stops as soon as the TV is turned on. Both TVs that I got had this issue.

2.) When the TV is on there is a noticible hum or buzzing noise that comes from the back middle of the TV panel. It seems to be linked to the backlighting intensity. I had to turn down the backlighting to 40-50 to lessen the humming. The sound from the speakers makes it so that you cant hear the humming but once a quiet period comes up I can easily hear the humming from 10+ feet away. The sound is not coming from the speakers as I have run tests and it is coming from one of the backlighting components. Both TVs that I got had the same issue, the last one seemed louder by a little.

Two years ago I decided to try a Vizio for our bedroom - a 47" Smart TV, and to my surprise, it turned out to be the best TV that we've ever owned. Two months ago, we needed another TV, and bought this one. It made it about 3 weeks before there was a 6" wide vertical line down the screen. One week later, half of the screen went away. I contacted Vizio, and they gave me the "standard list" of things to try - unplug it and plug it back in (really??), etc.

I was told that all returns / exchanges had to be done THROUGH VIZIO, not the place of purchase. That's when this began to get aggravating. They first requested the receipt. OK, I took a picture of the receipt and emailed it to them (per their request). A couple of days went by for them to "review" my receipt (really?). No response. I called to follow up (nightmare by the way). "OH, ok, we need you to send pictures of the TV". One showing the VIZIO light "lit up", which it would not do. I sent additional pictures of the 1/2 screen picture. A couple of days go by, no response. I called to follow up. "Oh, I see your pictures here. Let me put you on hold for a minute (17 minutes)". They guy came back and told me that it looked like I had a problem (NO S***???). He asked to put me on hold again, as he had to get a SECOND OPINION on my pictures - ??????????? WTH? After 10 minutes, I was told that I would receive a new TV. They set me up with a shipping company that would come to my house, deliver the new one, and pick up the bad one. They set it up for August 28th between 8:00-12:00 (morning). I stayed home from work, and at about 10:30, decided to give the shipping outfit (Manna) a call. "oh, sir, that's been re-scheduled for September 4th". Would've been nice for someone to tell me about this?? That was yesterday.

After reading several positive reviews of the 2013 32 inch Vizio, I bought the 2014 model. While the TV has many good points, I am going return it because it spontaneously goes off very frequently. Apparently, this is a manufacturing issue. I would not reccoemend it until Vizio has resolved this issue.

THIS TV IS JUNK! Do not buy. I repeat, do not buy this TV. I ordered it with high hopes and eagerly set it up and plugged it into my home network. I was so pumped to watch Netflix directly on my TV. Three minutes into an episode of Dexter, a high-pitched hissing noise, a blank screen, and the power on the TV goes out. My heart sunk and I dreaded the thought of having to deal with parting from my dear new Vizio so soon. I reset the TV and tried again, same result, over and over. The next day I began the return process and put in an order for a comparable sized TV with similar features from a more reputable *cough cough sony cough* brand. There are tons of reviews all over the Internet and Amazon regarding this problem with this and other makes of Vizio TVs. Vizio offers no solution... It's a lot of work to deal with a return, UPS pickups, headaches, taking a day off from work to be around for a delivery, and disappointment, etc. Just spend the couple of extra dollars (50 or so) and get a TV from a brand that know will be around tomorrow (Samsung, Sony, etc.) and have the peace of mind knowing that you wont be sold a defective product. I hope you take my advice and run! not walk away from this so called "deal" of the season.
