1.0 out of 5 stars NOT DEAF FRIENDLY, March 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VIZIO E470i-A0 47-inch 1080p LED Smart HDTV (2013 Model) (Electronics)
This is our first HD TV and we are freaking loving it! The main points are that we use Netflix as a TV provider instead of cable or satellite, so having a Netflix app and a Netflix button is too cool. I am not a tech guru so i can't say too much about the technical stuff but I do know that LED is the way to go, 120Hz is the latest and greatest and wifi connectivity means I can cut out one device. The thin frame should be standard on every tv, it makes this 47" seem larger.
stuff I'm unhappy with- no browser and no Pandora. It does however have rhapsody but I don;t have a rhapsody account because Pandora is free. And one more row of RC inputs would have been nice but I understand they're not as en vogue as they used to be.
*update, one month in- ah shucks the list of stuff I'm unhappy with has grown
Amazon app does support captioning ( big mad judgmental look going to amazon for that one)
The remote has to be pointed DIRECTLY at the lower left hand corner of the tv. Changing batteries on the remote to a higher quality battery has helped, however its not the free ranging point wherever stuff of old.
And last of all, when you start viewing a show and when you skip the image takes a few seconds to come to. It gives a strange pixilation that one might mistake for a few beers too many vision.
Not the worst stuff in the world, just minor annoyances. But it still shows great picture right out of the box! Nothing major to gripe about which means that this TV is holding its own!
*** Update 10 months in Pretty ticked about the continued lack of captioning support particularly from one of the quick app buttons. Thats costing you stars since Amazon says that its Vizio's fault and vizio won't respond.

My boyfriend got the same sharp tv and went mad over it. He's a FIFA and COD addict and has three TVs setup along with full-rotating mounts from this brand called FlexiMounts. It's pretty cool the way he can move them around. And not too overpriced either, so a pretty decent buy.
