I want to start by saying this is an excellent tv for the price with great picture, good appearance and hopefully good quality. I did a lot of research before buying this tv, including going to a local Best Buy to compare models (obviously Amazon had it for a better deal). I have had other vizio tvs that have lasted over 5 years with no issues so with some people saying it's a sub par brand is their OPINION. Now onto the good stuff:

Picture Quality - Every tv is slightly different, and each brand does their tv's different from another. Personally I like a brighter picture of my tv due to the fact my living room is quite bright at most times of the day. The blacks could be a little deeper like some of the name brand tv's but overall the picture is excellent for what you're buying and I actually prefer it. The M series is a Razor edge lit led tv which makes it very thin and allows localized dimming to create a more realistic and crisp image.

Aesthetics - The tv itself is quite spectacular, even when turned off. The front bezel is very small making the tv almost entirely screen with a very very small border. The stand is also very modern and sturdy so it looks nice on a tv stand or mounted on a wall.

Apps - I've personally only used it for Netflix that app alone makes this or any smart tv a good buy since there's a "Netflix" button right on the remote for quick access. The app interface itself is easy to navigate and there looks to be a lot of useful apps available, I however haven't used most of them at all.

DO NOT BUY THIS TV. Mine only last around 50 days. I went to turn it on one night and it froze on the vizio logo. I did a power cycle like the vizio customer support page suggested and the TV never turned back on. It was totally dead. This is my 4th Vizio. My first one had problems where it would only stay on for a couple minutes. The third one that I had the screen literally rattled in the frame. Now this one didn't even last 60 days.

Would have loved for it to work, because it was excellent when it did for a few hours on the first day

Got this on sale two weeks ago. My wife bought a 42" Samsung smart tv about two months ago and the apps were great, including a web browser, Netflix, Amazon instant video and cloud player. I also found Daily Burn, which has become my daily workout companion. I was looking at a Samsung set for me when the salesperson pointed out the razorLED picture on this Vizio set. It DID seem like a better picture, so I postponed my decision. When I returned to the store, the Vizio was on sale ($50 reduction) so that settled it! After all, the box had logos for all kinds of apps including Netflix. I figured all smart tvs had similar apps.
Well, setup was quite easy. I used a wired Ethernet for best streaming speed and most of the apps seemed to work except for Netflix. I then found that most apps available for the Vizio were Yahoo-based instead of Google-based, and my news apps were what seemed like dozens of variations on Fox News. Alll in all I was missing the apps I knew and loved. No Daily Burn! No web browser. And try as I may, I couldn't get the Netflix app to work. Per suggestions on the web I tried deleting the app and re-installing it, then tried resetting to factory defaults and re-installing everything (with the help of Vizio tech support). Finally tech support said it was obviously a Netflix problem. So I called Netflix. Nice support person worked through the same stuff, eventually concluding that it was obviously Vizio's problem. I complained bitterly about the finger-pointing game and she gave me several reasons why it HAD to be Vizio's problem and that was the end of that!
At this point it was MY problem. Both tech supports had been very responsive (no long hold times) and I learned a lot about the tv with the Vizio support guy.

I bought this tv for myself in August of 2013. Loved it. Great picture. Liked the internet . Good sound. Loved the tv--UNTIL it broke. Turned it on one day and there was sound but no picture. Called tech support. They had no clue . So called the warranty center as it was less than a year old and still under warranty.

And so the nightmare begins. They first schedule a tech to come out a few weeks later to fix it. He arrives. Can't fix it. So he calls Vizio. They then schedule another tech to fix it. He comes a week later. He can't fix it either. He calls them. They were going to schedule a third tech but I said enough was enough. So then I call the warranty center because they just don't ever call you. Now they say they will send me a refurbished tv but they have to send someone out to pick up the old one. To my house. In a rural area 300 miles from no where. So My tv broke March 14. It is now April 14 and I call yet again. They can't bring me another tv now until May. WTH? And there is nothing I can do. They won't send me a tv because someone has to bring it personally because apparently they don't trust me to send the other one back. I spent 600 plus dollars on their product and I trusted them. But apparently I don't get the same courtesy. I WILL NEVER BUY VIZIO AGAIN. EVER. . So go ahead and buy this tv but hope yours doesn't break because if it does it will take a miracle to get it fixed or replaced.
