VIZIO 37” Class Razor LED™ Smart TV | M370SL
Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2012):
Five stars! I have been browsing the stores for months to get my elderly mother a TV, she was still watching her old tube TV from a decade ago using a converter box. I knew, for my own satisfaction, its replacement had to be a good one (for me) but simple too (for mom). I have been waiting months, seeing only LCD TVs at the right price. Two days ago this M370SL model arrived in the store, I saw it today and bought it on the spot. It's one of the Most Confident Purchases I've ever made.
Features that "sold" me: LED (thin and light), 120 Hz, narrow edge frame, wireless connectivity, 2 USB inputs and of course VIZIO reputation for value and quality. However, loud front facing 10W speakers were the most critical to accommodate the hearing needs. We had it up to the 60-70 level without any distortion whatsoever.
Downsides? Maybe the 8 ms response time listed in the specs, though I never noticed a problem. Due to space limitations, I was limited to searching among 37" and 40" models, though I suspect the upcoming 42" model won't be as wide as the old 42" model and may fit too. But this price was within my budget and it came home with us.
It was the most simple out-of-the-box experience ever for me. One thumb screw to attach the base, plug in the wires, simple setup, then it was done and we were watching TV!
