Style Name: TVSize Name: 42-Inch
Just so you know: Before buying, make sure that the HDTV you are looking at has a "B" in the model number (for example M422i-B1) and not an "A", which is the 2013 model. The 2014 model is definitely better. Also, different sizes of this model will have different statistics.

I did countless hours of research and comparing HDTV's in stores. After much thought and consideration, I concluded that Samsung HDTV's had the best possible picture quality (at least to me). Their colors were very strong, vivid, and real, and their whites and blacks were amazing. The problem was the cost. Probably second or third best in picture quality came Vizio, and at a much more affordable price.

When looking to buy an HDTV, I found this Vizio HDTV, and compared it to the Samsung HDTV's for sale on Amazon. None of the Samsung HDTV's in the size I was looking at (40-42 in.) had a 240Hz refresh rate (120Hz true refresh rate) like this one did. Because of the refresh rate and price (and the fact that most of the one star reviews for this HDTV at the time were on the 2013 model), I chose this over the Samsung's, and I'm very glad I did. It has everything I could possibly ask for, especially at this price!

With the active LED zones, this HDTV can dim different parts of the screen for darker blacks. The blacks are so dark, if you are viewing a black image on the screen, you cannot tell if the HDTV is on or off! The whites are really white, not yellowish or grayish.

Style Name: TVSize Name: 42-Inch
Excellent picture quality, but requires some adjustments out of the box. The picture quality of this TV set rivals the competition!

Pros:

Excellent color rendition; colors are not overly saturated
Full array local dimming (FALD) feature produces deep blacks - much better than the 2014 E series which I previously purchased but returned
Smart apps are useful and load quickly
Generous amount of HDMI inputs
Beautifully designed with a thin bezel, and sturdy stand

Here are the calibration settings I am using which I found online:

Auto Brightness Control: Off
Backlight: 56
Brightness: 53
Contrast: 50
Color: 43
Tint: -2
Sharpness: 0

Color Temperature: Normal
Black Detail: Low
Active LED Zones: On
Smooth Motion Effect: Off
Motion Blur Reduction: On
Reduce Signal Noise: Off
Reduce Block Noise: Off

Cons:
Lag in navigating the menus with the remote
Subpar sound quality which can be remedied by using an external audio source (soundbar, sorroundsound)

There are way too many reviews included here that are 2013 models with 3D. There is no way to get an accurate star rating on the 2014 model. A model # with a B is 2014. A model # with an A is 2013.

Style Name: TVSize Name: 42-Inch Verified Purchase
Right out of the box, the TV is a bit underwhelming in terms of picture quality. Although the design itself is quite aesthetic, reminiscent of the modern and slick designs of an iMac, the picture quality without calibration is bit too cool. Luckily, this is easily remedied and with a few changes, the picture looks AMAZING. It blows the picture quality of my old Sony XBR3 LCD tv and my 5 year old Vizio out of the water. Deep, dark, inky blacks, with excellent color, that's not washed out nor over-saturated.

In short, here are the pros and cons of the set:

Pros:
1) Great minimalistic design. The bezels are barely there, making the set quite immersive.
2) Vivid colors, without being overblown, along with deep blacks. The full-array dimming definitely helps obtaining nice deep blacks. 1080p content is crystal clear, though it's helpful to drop the sharpness down to 40 to avoid the haloing effect.
3) The "Calibrated dark" looks good enough to me, though, I find it necessary to change the color from "Cool" which is standard, to "normal" or "Computer" as "Cool" provides too much of a blue hue to the screen. "Normal," which oddly isn't standard, looks pretty neutral to me. More picky videophiles will likely want to calibrate it further, and those options are certainly available.
4) WiFi reception is good, better than the 2014 E-series, it seems, but it's not quite as strong in reception as my Playstation 4. Depending on your network, you may want to use a WiFi repeater or Ethernet.
5) Not a single dead or stuck pixel! Though one report doesn't mean all are good, it seems the QA is pretty decent based on this set.
6) Subjectively, input lag seems to be better than my old sets. No ghosting either!
7) Excellent viewing angles.

Style Name: TV with $120 Prime Member SavingsSize Name: 55-Inch Verified Purchase
I purchased the 55 inch VIzio M series
My advice:: buy this product

Please note: there is no perfect TV in this price range. Almost all of the reviewed TV's have some sort of flaw. =)

Pros::
1. This is a decent TV for the price. I researched several TVs in this price range. The Samsung and Sony models were a few hundred dollars more expensive and I think this TV is of comparable quality.
2. The CALIBRATED setting is pretty good out of the box. I tried the CNET calibration settings and it did not work at all. I think the firmware has been updated since those settings, so you will have to try something else or live with the preset calibrated. Or, you can try what I am using, explained below.
3. People have previously complained about the flesh tones coming out reddish. As of this review date, I do see some reddish on some shows (like the Daily show) for some reason. But, overall it looks reasonable and most of the time the flesh tones look very good to me.
4. The TV is super thin and looks great.
5. Total breeze to setup.
6. The backlit full QUERTY keyboard on the back of the remote control is really nice. I just wish the front would light up also!

Cons:
1. The speakers. I am definitely going to get a sound bar. Probably an ultra thin one that will fit directly between the bottom of the TV and the stand.
2. The analog input from cable TV looks pretty bad. The TV amplifies all the noise and it looks very "snowy". You will most likely want a digital cable box with HDMI input to the TV.
3. Probably not the best choice for gaming due to lag, but I am not a gamer so this is fine for me.
