Excellent Picture, Sound and it's simple!
on May 24, 2012
I purchased a Vizio E390VL last week from my local Costco ($399.99) and couldn't be happier. I live in the mountains, so I don't have a lot of the "modern" technology that much of the U.S. has, so I was looking for a great TV that was not over-accessorized with a bunch of widgets, social media, streaming movies, etc., built in. This TV fit the bill precisely. In all honesty, it does have one LAN connection, but it's hard to find almost anything electronic that doesn't have an internet connection.
When I got to Costco, I was planning on purchasing the 37" Vizio E370VL ($394.99), which appears to be an exact replica of the E390VL, but for only 5 bucks more, I was able to get 2 more diagonal inches of screen size from this brand new model, at 39".
This TV has many desirable features, including ambient light sensor, so the picture brightness is automatically adjusted for room light conditions. One of the best things I love about this TV is the OUTSTANDING sound - not the tinny sound many people have come to expect from a mid-sized flat-screen television. I have this TV in my bedroom and have not even considered upgrading the sound from the factory supplied speakers.
Overall, I would buy another Vizio in a heartbeat. Costco offered a standard 2 year warranty and I purchased an additional 3 years of warranty service from Square Deal (at Costco) for only $29.00. Great deal!
