Best Buy TV Review by boobala

This TV is awesome. For the price you can't get a better quality and sharper TV. Easy to assemble and set up. Sound and picture are great. You can't go wrong on Vizio TV's as we have two others and they are great too.

Great TV Review by Janda

I bought this TV for my bedroom, and it is perfect for what I need it for. The picture is crisp, clear and the sound is good. I am thinking of getting a Vizio sound bar to go with it, as I have one for my living room TV, and the sound spoils you!

Nice Review by Skull

I purchased this TV because I just like the VIZIO TV's. I have a entertainment center and thought it wouldn't fit into it. Was I surprised when it did! Because they have a slimmer frame it fit perfect. The picture is beautiful ,rich,full colors,I did hook it up with a Monster HDMI cable.If you have extra money I would suggest a Monster ..More Bang for the buck on the Picture! Plan on getting a VIZIO for the bedroom..32 inch..Vizio is the way to go! Love the Company they know how to do things RIGHT!
