Size Name: 32-Inch Verified Purchase
I did a lot of homework and research about this TV and others before I decided to buy this one. Let me say that I made the right decision. I received the TV only 4 days after ordering. Very fast shipping I must say, and not to have paid extra. I was so excited!!
Set up was a breeze!! I had no problems connecting to my wireless connection and was online and streaming Netflix in 10 minutes. Worked right away with my DirecTV, and works great with all DirecTV's HD channels. Awesome picture, and it has options for wide screen, normal, zoom, or panoramic viewing. Most of the time I have it set to Zoom option, which uses the whole screen. And the sound quality is the best!! At just 10 volume, it is plenty loud enough for me. I turned it up to 30 and could hear it throughout my house!!
I've had this TV for 2 months now, and I absolutely love it!!
I would highly recommend this model if you are looking for a TV that offers HD and Wifi, and yes, I brag about it to all my friends and family!!
Again, AWESOME TV AND AWESOME PRICE!!

UPDATE--1-26-2013
AFTER ALMOST 6 MONTHS LATER, TV IS STILL GOING STRONG AND HAVE HAD NO ISSUES. I STILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TV IF YOUR IN THE MARKET FOR ONE!! IM LOVIN' IT!

Size Name: 42-Inch
The review below was written soon after purchase. Updates a few months later are below.

The quality of the picture on this TV is absolutely amazing. It was simple to hook up and set up right out of the box. It accessed our home wi-fi network very easily and the quality of pictures streamed from Netflix was beautiful. No issues with connectivity at all.

The menu is simple and intuitive to use. Initial set up (where you input your IP address, home address, Netflix information etc) can be a bit annyoing since the remote does not have letter keys but once done there is really no need to have to deal with that again. The only apps I have tried out so far are Netflix and Pandora. The sound quality when playing music is more than adequate for my needs.

While it does not have the 120 Hz that supposedly helps while watching sports we have not noticed any issues with it being 'only' 60 Hz.

Initially, when connected to our old AV equipment, the picture displayed on the tv was quite poor. However, that had more to do with the VCR/DVD and cable quality than with the tv. With the older dvd player we couldn't get the picture to be quite 'right' and the automatic backlight adjustment needed to be turned off. Once we switched to a blu ray player that upscaled our dvd's the picture was absolutey amazing. So, if you are using older equipment you may not see the full potential of what this tv can do.

Also, since the TV is Wi-Fi capable we bough a blu ray that was a bit cheaper since it lacked wi fi but was excellent at upscaling dvd's. Samsung BD-E5300 Blu-ray Disc Player (Black)

The tv has 3 HDMI inputs, one component input and one usb input.

Size Name: 32-Inch
PROS:
Just bought this TV the other night and setup was easy, from a hardware point of view. Electronically connected to my DTV box and my home network with little effort, albeit, the remote was a bit touchy.
Picture is what I would expect from a 720p unit of this size, clear and precise, good blacks with no artifacts visible.
Sound is good with the surround turned on (from a surround broadcast channel).
All-in-all, a great TV for the price, didn't really think I was going to find a "smart" tv in this 32" range with as many pre-loaded apps as this one has.
If you're looking for a smaller (32") unit that will preform well in a bright light room, that can be seen from almost any angle, look at this model from Vizio.

CONS:
setup requires you to input some things with alpha-numeric characters and the remote only has numeric . . . keyboard is supplied on screen but navigates slowly until you get the hang of it.
I had to use a Samsung code for my DTV remote to interface with this TV, the Vizio codes didn't work (probably too new for DTV to even know about it yet). Not Vizio's fault, a Directv issue.

Size Name: 32-Inch
1 MONTH UPDATE - I'm downgrading to 3 stars from 4. Frankly the TV is buggy for my tastes. The latest thing that displeased me is I could not get audio from my laptop to run through the TV speakers (PC audio in). So if you want to use this as a computer monitor, it's a major compromise. Driver updates didn't work, trying HDMI audio didn't work, and I did a store exchange and the replacement didn't work either. Finally, Vizio tech support essentially blamed my computer (even though I've had no problems getting sound when I hook it up to other TVs. If someone here has solved this, and can leave a comment or tip, I'll gladly revoke the downgrade.)

Here's my original review, which noted some other bugs.

____

I've owned several HDTVs and I think this TV has some strengths, but some bugs and weaknesses.

PRO
-Price is great for a web enabled TV
-Quickly found my wifi network
-Apps store is nice, lots of free choices. Weather, news, radio, Facebook, Twitter etc
-Picks up channels via antenna as well as my name brand TVs do
-Light and small profile for its size makes it a nice choice for small rooms
-Use some apps (like weather and news) while watching TV. MULTITASKERS rejoice! (I might have given the TV 3 stars instead of 4 until it exceeded my expectations here)
-Customer service was easy to reach.
