- Absolutely amazing Review by ashleykatelyn516
I bought this tv last week, i had a Insignia 50" that i ended up exchanging for this tv. The difference is not even comparable. This tv picture is fantastic. Even on regular definition channels this tv looks terrific, but a million times better with the hd. I have a 32inch vizio and a 26inch vizio and i dont know what i was thinking going with another brand. It was a bad idea, I wont make that mistake again. Our next tv will also be a vizio. We just ordered the vizio sound bar, although the sound on this tv is actually really good. I was expecting it to be not the best because that tends to be what happens with flat screens but it is actually pretty wonderful. We are deciding to go with the sound bar because the room we have this tv in is about 20L x 40W. plus for the superbowl.
i would definitely recommend this tv to anybody. The best tv I have owned yet.

- One great TV Review by jer bear
Only had the TV for a week and find it exceptional. I'd hung onto my old 36 inch
Toshiba for way too long. It's a thrill to be able to see all I've been missing.

Got my 50 E500i-a1 today and I'm loving this awesome television. Got me a nice stand that as bracket mount. Can't wait to get vizio sound bar VH215 to go with it.

- Still in Awe Review by TheGiftedOne216
We purchased the TV for Thanksgiving. Im still amazed at the picture, sound and quality. I had a LCD for the last 5 years. I can honestly say that this TV is the best that i have researched and bought. It makes the PS3 come to life in ways beyond enjoyment. Blu-ray is fully enjoyable with the LED capabilities. Watching Youtube on the TV is even more awesome. Thanks Vizio

- Wow talk about value for $$ Review by Spence
I ordered this before Thanksgiving and Vizio delivered it to me via Manna delivery service. Arrived without a scratch on the box.
As stated by previous review, easy assembly right out of the box. Picture is just what Vizio provides and they came through again. In HD it is simply stunning.
I have UVerse and I am using a wireless receiver and it is just what I had hoped. May have to play with the sound settings to your satisfaction but worth every penny.
It has been sold out for some time and I can understand why; you better hope they re-stock soon as I can now see another company matching the quality for this price.
