Great Picture Quality at this price range.
Posted by: TJacks from: on
Good TV over all, would be great but the "Tablet Remote" feature is more annoying than anything. The remote that comes with the TV has about 6 buttons total where you can do basic things to the TV. To get the full features like sleep timers, color and picture quality sliders, time settings, ect you have to use your smart phone/tablet app . The process to pair that app is annoying and failed the first 3 times i tried.
Other than the virtual remote / settings... The picture quality of the TV is excellent. Before this TV, i had a 1080p cheapo brand 32 inch and the picture quality on this TV is superior compared. The sound quality is fine. It's a small TV so don't expect much from the sound.
Also beware of the "120hz refresh rate" that is advertised. This TV is only 60hz on the hardware side. It can virtually get higher refresh rates , but it does so by manipulating the backlite to make it appear 120hz. If you put this on a computer and expect to get 120 fps on VSync, you'll be disappointed.

Vizio Smartcast App - Required to operate
Posted by: Disappointed from: on
Very difficult to set-up on smart phone, if it works at all. It took a about 4 hrs of a Saturday with the Vizio help desk to get setup what i could then i quit. They knew there was problem when this was rolled out. It is poor quality code and too difficult for the user. Power on function from app does not work even after resetting power option making you use the remote anyhow. Will not pair causing the user to link thru WiFi. Even after linking thru WiFi most options are greyed out preventing using the app for anything. Bottom line is its very difficult to get working if at all. Seems as though the app was not tested or thought thru. I'm returning the TV and suggest Best Buy return all Vizio TV's that require the app.

Found the setup extremely complicated.
Posted by: Segan from: on
Does not have a typical remote. You download the app to a smartphone or tablet and use, which is a great concept, but we were never able to get the app. to work. Took back and purchased another brand with a standard remote. Would have been nice to include a standard remote with the option of the app.

Horrible Smart TV
Posted by: xtina978 from: on
We bought this on the recommendation of best buy employee who was working the floor. Took hours to try to work on smart phone and even then doesn't work correctly. The app runs continuously in the background even after closing it repeatedly and requesting that it NOT do that. Cannot easily access netflix and hulu unless you have the apps on your phone running. Kept kicking off the wifi. Returning it tonight.

Very Nice TV
Posted by: DMP1234 from: on
This TV is very nice. The picture quality is great. I do not have cable TV, and it picks up all of the local stations perfectly. It also has RCA audio out jacks, for hooking up to my vintage amplifier. Very few TVs have those now. I would prefer it came with a full function remote with full function menus on the TV, but I am getting use to it. The TV comes with a basic remote, Beyond basic use, other settings must be made from an app on a tablet/smartphone. The app is, however, very easy to use. I just got my first smartphone last month, and I got it to work without any problems. For 99% of what I use the TV for, the basic remote is fine. The more I use the app on my smartphone, the more I like it. The app basically turns your smartphone into a $300. touchscreen TV remote and a digital version of an old school video rental store.

More than just a TV
Posted by: CLGinRapidCity from: on
I purchased this for a computer monitor with 1080p, 120hz refresh rate, and HDMI input. It works great like the last Vizio I had. But, when I checked out the TV and Streaming portion of this model (after getting it home), I somehow overlooked that this model requires a smartphone or tablet to operate the majority of these features. The enclosed remote is very limited. This model is designed for TECHIES who want to control everything with their phones or tablets. Overall, the images are clear and sharp for viewing. No Headphone Jack, but there are third-party options.

I went to best buy to purchase a 32" vizio smart tv with 1080 P 120hz. when i got there they did not have the one i wanted. Instead they sold me this one. They did not tell me that I could not use any smart features unless i had a smart phone or tablet to cinque with it. I found out only after I purchased 3 tv's. I only have one smart phone . when i attempted to set this tv up it repeatedly said unable to set up. I was not even able to switch to regular cable. I'm very disappointed in vizios smartcast feature. Epic fail. And very disappointed in bestbuy for selling this product to me knowing what i wanted and not informing me about the differences in what I asked for and this tv. Fyi I followed the directions for set up and it didn't work .

Wish I would have read the reviews more closely

So unhappy with the basic remote and that you have to download an app to access the TV menu. Picture is poor quality (because I can't adjust brightness) and not full screen (because I can't access picture menu). So frustrating, not sure I'm keeping it.

Excellent HDTV but be aware that it does not come with a FULL remote control. To access fine tunings and update its Firmware you'll need a smartphone, tablet, etc., and download their app. Your online mobile device will now function as the remote. It's the only draw back but only if you don't have a mobile smart-device.

Love the picture. Hate Chromecast.
Posted by: Marcie from: on
Do not like the need to use my tablet or phone in order to access the apps. Prefer them to be on the tv remote. Great picture quality,
