5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, November 22, 2012
This review is from: VIZIO E500i-A1 50-inch 1080P LED Smart HDTV (2013 Model) (Electronics)
Just got the TV yesterday and hooked it up this morning for the Macy's parade! Amazing is all I have to say. Install is easy - just attach the base if you are not wall mounting. Took about 10 minutes from box to watching TV. The apps are what make this entire thing so worth while. Before we were streaming video through demand with our blueray player - now you can stream right from the TV, which makes it seamless. You can also watch TV on the side while browsing for a movie to stream. I love the technology.

The thin rim on this TV also makes the profile smaller and increases the viewing area.

Best 2012 purchase and I didn't even have to leave the house!

Did you buy the vizio co star with it? I am a little confused as to whether I can surf the web from the tv without buying one... Or whether it is just value added complement to the browsing experience?

How is the Picture Quality, the Sharpness, and all other things that you look for when watching tv. I want to get two of these but I'm just waiting for others to purchase it so I know how well it is.

How does a "thin rim" increase the viewing area? Viewing area regardless of rim is 50 inch I would suppose....

You know the reviewer means other TVs claiming a 50 inch viewing area without a thin perimeter or "rim" will have larger overall dimensions due to the 1 to 2 inch wide frame around most LCD TV screens. You're just trying to pick apart their poor choice of words. Don't be so intentionally obtuse.

can't browse the web on it. so no keypad remote. it may have an app though that you could download to browse, but it would be cumbersome.

meaning the rim is not a distraction from viewing the picture. makes the TV look bigger as the picture goes all the way out to the edge.

great. it's and HDTV. if you haven't had one, you will notice a difference, if you do have one, it's the same.

didn't. you can use the internet apps which connect to the internet. i've never surfed the web on it - don't have an interest to.
