This is a very nice TV at a nice pricepoint at $598. The picture quality and audio quality are both above my expectations. Barely anyone can tell the difference between 60Hz and 120 Hz, and I don't feel that paying the extra is worth any more in picture quality. Vizio is a quality company, based in California. This TV is to replace a Samsung 52 in LCD that stopped working (flickering continuously on-off) in past weeks. From a quick look at Samsung at online forums, it seems all models of Samsung are prone to this type of failure, and I simply did not want to go back to a company that disappointed me. A TV should last until you are ready to replace it with a new one.

As for this not being a Smart TV, it is pretty clear it is not a Smart TV from doing your due diligence beforehand. Regardless, I look at the new technology of smart TV's as just another useless addition that increases the chance of it failing prematurely. This is a great TV if you don't need the Smart TV option.

Overall, it is a quality TV. No complaints

TV was delivered, unpacked, tested and has been used for the last several weeks. It's a no-frills TV that won't arrange for videoconferencing or allow you to do email, but will enable you to watch TV, period. Multiple HDMI ports on the back, one RGB port. Works well.

Good price and great picture and sound quality. Delivered when it was supposed to be. Upgraded from a 42" to this and though is seems like a small upgrade it turned out to be a BIG one.

This is a great TV. It has an excellent picture and generally good sound. For sports and all around TV is performs very well. I also like the price and the fact that Vizio is based in the U.S.

I ordered one of these, and the first one had some bulb issues or something after around 20 days. There were white lines being made down the left side of the screen. I got it replaced and so far the new one hasn't done that, but I don't think it has been 20 days yet.

However, it does have one issue. The bottom 1/5th of the screen flickers. Certain colors make this more apparent. Blue seems to make it most obvious. So far, this doesn't really bother me, but if it gets worse I may have a problem. The first TV that I replaced did NOT have this new ones problem, so it seems that there are a variety of issues this TV may have, but I figure that's the price of paying less for a great TV.

Other than this the TV more than meets my expectations and as long as it doesn't get worse I will keep it and enjoy it, knowing it is well worth the price.

EDIT 2/12/2013
The problem DID indeed get a bit worse, so I am returning and trying yet again, hoping the next one has no issues, at least for the month I'm allowed to return it in. Geez, hope nothing happens after that period with next one. I really don't want to try any other kind of TV, as this one has the picture I want, when it works perfectly haha. PLEASE make this exchange the last. :)

EDIT 2/11/2014
Wow, I let time get away from me. I got one last E500AR after returning the one mentioned above(I can't believe that was almost exactly a year ago. Eerie). Anyways, the E500AR I got then I am still using. It is perfect. The issues of the previous TV's haven't appeared and I doubt you could find a better TV for triple the price. I will change the review now to 5 Stars.

Researched for months and decided on this Vizio TV... I was not disappointed! Great picture, features. Sound was a little dull so with a $100 Vizio sound bar it was great! I don't think it can be beat for the price I paid.

This is an EXCELLENT tv for the price. It is HUGE! The picture is so crisp and clean and the colors just POP!. The sound is excellent. My husband and I purchased this brand because we had a 32" VIZIO when they first came out about 6 years ago. It was a flat screen when flat screens first were becoming popular. To this day, that 32" television is WONDERFUL. Just as crisp and great sounding as when we first purchased it. We chose to buy a 50" to upgrade our tv to a bigger size. We couldn't have asked for a better prouct. I highly recommend VIZIO to anyone wanting a wonderful. television at a great price.

The delivery company that Amazon used were very professional. The men brought the televsion in and removed it from the box, set it up for me and made sure it was in good working order before leaving. I was able to connect my HDMI cables and my cable box with no trouble at all.

I called VIZIO to register my television and ask a few tech questions and the gal I spoke with was very helpful, knowledgable and extremely friendly and customer service oritented. Top shelf company to do business with. We will continue to purchase VIZIO products.

I was looking at different brands, and this one got high reviews in Consumer Reports. It's awesome in every way. I have it hooked up to a blu-ray player and ROKU via HDMI and the picture is even better than awesome. IT IS ULTIMATE SAUCE. The ROKU in particular is absolutely amazing--the difference between 1080 streaming and regular DVDs is startling.

Note: I recommend keeping the picture setting on "Vivid," as it's very bright and versatile.
