Fantastic TV for the price!
I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
Overall I am extremely happy with my choice. I don't understand the issues other reviewers have had; maybe these were earlier production units and these glitches have been resolved on later units. I don't think there is a better set out there for $479. Outstanding value and I highly recommend if you are in the market for a 40" tv.
Smart, supports a 1080p native resolution
The Vizio E551i-A2 ($829) is never going to claim the title of Home Theater King with its poor uniformity and judder-prone motion, but it deserves some serious accolades. For what you're paying, you could probably get a 50-inch dumb TV from other manufacturers. Vizio is tossing in an extra five inches of screen and easy access to Netflix, Hulu, and Facebook - more or less for free.
We think that's awesome.
Good for sports viewing, High-def
For those that are looking for a solid Full HD television that offer high quality viewing, then the Vizio E401i-A2 is probably something to consider. Serious sport fans and those that are into fast action movies will love this TV.
What's not to like?
The Vizio is very easy to set up. It is, quite literally, plug and play. And within a very few minutes of filling in on-screen answers, the wi-fi was working and Netflix was playing. The remote is small, as are the keys (for my somewhat large fingers). But everything is clearly labeled, which makes it is easy to use. The learning process for the remote is short. I only had to refer to the 'Quick Start' guide once.
Easy to stream movies & series with Internet Apps
As mentioned in the beginning, it's a good HDTV with bunch of useful features. You'll watch TV, series and movies no problem with this. And if you run out of them temporarily you can get more with Internet Apps. Thus there's always something entertaining when you fire up this TV :)
32 Emerald series
Been using for one month on average eight hours a day. I like this TV. I use it as a PC monitor sitting 5 to 10 feet away at various times and the picture is very comfortable to look at. Yes there is 444 chroma subsampling if you use the 1366 or 1360 native resolution's. I got it hooked up to HDMI to my PC with a Radeon 7700 video card. Games like Guild wars two look great especially with the program called sweet FX which makes the colors look even better.
Easy set up very clear picture in HD
So easy to use and set up, crystal clear picture if you are watching anything HD. This isn't even for sale yet here on Amazon but I bought this at a local dealer yesterday and it is perfect. Apps work great. We have amazon prime and i am watching a movie as I type. We got the 50in and could not be happier.
Good overall image quality
The design of the Sony KDL-46EX645 has seen a little bit of an update compared to Sony's previous line of HDTVs. The new bezel is metallic in color and has a new finish that actually makes it look quite attractive. The stand, on the other hand, is a fairly standard black rectangular design.
Aesthetically beautiful, Well rounded features
Overall, we really like the Sony KDL46EX645. We feel it has a good combination of features for its price. It's a good choice to be the main TV in your home.
Very good set of streaming options
The Vizio M3D470KD's low price, very good image quality, and keyboard remote control make it a serious contender for the bang-for-the-buck crown. The audio problems and other quirks make the set less than perfect, but those shortcomings are negligible if you don't use your HDTV's built-in sound system.
Has a beautiful Razor thin design.
Advanced picture technology combined with a super thin profile make the Vizio M3D550KD TV a prized buy for anyone who is looking for a high quality 3D Smart TV.
Even though you may have to spend a little time fine tuning your picture once you unbox this television, this minor annoyance will seem like nothing compared to the stunning picture quality that you will be able to get once you are finished.
Great TV/ Great Price
This is a very nice TV at a nice pricepoint at $598. The picture quality and audio quality are both above my expectations. Barely anyone can tell the difference between 60Hz and 120 Hz, and I don't feel that paying the extra is worth any more in picture quality. Vizio is a quality company, based in California. This TV is to replace a Samsung 52 in LCD that stopped working (flickering continuously on-off) in past weeks.
Great TV for a Great Price
The setup with this tv is like with all Vizios is simple. This tv would make a great bedroom tv as well but I am using it in my kitchen for the kids to watch while eating breakfast and for the wife when she cooks dinner and watches her cooking shows. The only flaw like almost all other Vizios is the remote. It is just not fitted to the had and overall just looks and feels cheap otherwise buy this tv knowing that the price and function are great.
Razor LED Edge Lighting features makes the E320VT extremely slim
The E series are Vizio's entry level line of Razor LED edge lit LCD televisions. They come in a wide variety of sizes and trim levels. Although they lack some of the features of the higher end models, like internet connectivity and higher refresh rates.
The best LED-lit television at a budget price
It's a great buy. Lots of connectivity, access to smart apps (I enjoy the YouTube one, Netflix is also available and they are adding more). Definitely recommended.
Tips and Caveats
If you plan to use this as a monitor, make sure you label the source as "PC" of some kind. This removes a lot of post-processing.
The overall picture quality is pretty impressive.
The most enticing element about Samsung UN32EH5300 is the presence of various features such as for internet connections, Netflix, etc. The Wi-Fi technology included in the TV is a major plus to the HDTV as well as the fact that it has stronger and easy setup to connections. The overall picture quality is pretty impressive. The web page PIP comes along with the TV signal.
The web browser doesn't support Flash, which I initially thought Samsung does support on these TVs.
Presence of internet connections, Netflix, etc.
The Samsung UN32EH5300 is one of the budget LED TVs in the market today. The picture quality is not the same as its expensive counterparts but is quite nice for the price that you pay and for its size. This HDTV also has some useful features that may be a good selling point for the model such as the Smart Content and the built-in Wi-Fi.
My first LED TV
This is my first LED tv and I'm impressed. Great picture, really thin frame. What more could you ask for? I've spend a couple days paying attention issues with the picture, really searching for anything. There really isn't much to complain about. I was a little concerned about a 60hz refresh rate being an issue, but it's refresh rate, even in action scenes is really, really good. No complaints there. The dark is very dark, giving the right feel of depth.
