Great deal for a great TV.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VIZIO E601i-A3 60-inch 1080p Razor LED Smart HDTV (2013 Model) (Electronics)
This TV is a steal for the money. It's HUGE! I love the smart apps. I was a little worried about getting a Vizio, but it's under $1000, and I decided to go for it. I haven't been disappointed. It's not perfect, but I knew I wouldn't find a perfect 60in LED with smart apps for under $1000.
Extremely light for such a big TV
Smart apps, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. (app bar is accessible without interrupting the show)
Built in WiFi (easy to setup)
Exhaustive, easy-to-use color settings
Full keyboard on back of the remote (for web apps)
Amazing HD picture over HDMI
Lots of inputs
Cons: (These are ALL of the minor annoyances I've found, but I still don't regret my choice)
Noise artifacts over component cable (720P) - just switch to HDMI to fix this
Takes 8-10 seconds to turn on
Remote is not back-lit. Can be hard to use in a dark room.
Minor uniformity issues.
Base does not swivel.
Black levels can't compete with the higher end models, but still better than my older Samsung.
No built-in calibration tools
Smoothing makes movies look like soap operas. Luckily, this can be reduced or turned off.
All in all, I love the TV. I made a great purchase decision. With an extra $500, I may have been able to find a Samsung with the same feature set, but then it probably would have its own list of annoyances too. Not worth it. Just get this one.

Seems like this samsung tv is really worth the price but I have my doubts about it being sturdy enough if I place it high up. I can't really afford to see this one break. Did you fix the TV to the wall? I would probably go for FlexiMounts to mount it. Check it out if you had a similar conern.
