Great TV Review by Artie

This TV is so clear, the 3d is really awesome, the sound, the clarity and color is super.I had to replace my samsung 55inch it was two years old come December and the picture went out , it was a smart tv and had everything very disappointed ,it's a good thing it was still under warranty they. reimbursed me for it ,said they couldn't fix it. I hope this Visio holds up always buy extra warranty it's well worth it.

Best In Class Review by Mike

My second Vizio TV. 3D is awesome. Beautiful color, clarity and detail. Setup is extremely easy with the onscreen guide. Lighted remote is very useful when it is family movie night. The apps. are a big plus with the tv. Stay at home save the gas and enjoy a good movie with just a push of the button. Adding devices was a snap. Living in an apartment, I was concerned about viewing angle of the tv. Absolutely no problem with side viewing. I will continue to buy Vizio and recommend to all my family and friends.

Great set at a decent price Review by BT

Bought this model to replace a plasma that died. Compared to plasma, the picture isn't quite as good but it runs cooler, which is a good trade-off. Very easy to set up. Comes with a good remote that handles everything (cable box and sound bar). Overall, very pleased so far and surprised by the price point.

4.5 stars out of 5 Review by tom

Great TV if what you want is a great picture and simplicity of operation with size at a fair price.

The only negative I find is the apps are limited and I have found no way to update them or the app process if Vizio changes it in the future.

Even if you do not watch 3d much (we hardly ever do) the HD picture is so much better due to the refresh rate it is worth having.

Fantastic value. In fact I am struggling with buying the 80 inch because of the large difference in price. I am considering settling for the 70 inch. I would prefer the 80 inch but I am not sure it is worth the extra cost. If it were priced in line with it's cousins I would have already bought it.
