Superb picture quality and great sound. The Vizio app allows you to connect the tv to your phone or tablet which allows you to use apps just as you would with a Chromecast. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc all work flawlessly from my phone. Couldn't be happier with my purchase and the price makes this TV a steal!

Poorly implemented concept
Posted by: David from: on
Need your smart phone for even simple things like changing your channel from 2.1 to 5.1 without stepping through everything in between (here that means 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 4.1 & 4.2). The basic remote that comes with the set has incredibly limited functionality. Even a universal remote has limited functional as the interface is designed for smart phones and tablets. I'm certain there are some single occupant households where this concept might be functional, but if you leave with your phone the rest of the household is stuck unless everyone has their own phone set up for the TV, if you get a call you have limited access to the TV functionality, same limited functionality if you forgot to charge your phone or left it somewhere else,...
Stupid concept further hampered by a poor implementation.

One of the most frustrating purchases I've made...
Posted by: Ryan from: on
...and I once owned a French-made car. I did some research online before making this purchase, but obviously not enough. If I'd known then what I know now I would have saved money and frustration.
1) I'd like to echo what other 1-star reviews said about the smart phone app. The remote that comes with the TV is wholly inadequate and the smartphone app to control your TV is a fad that I hope dies a quick death, alone and unloved. I have a 10 year old daughter who is begging for a smart phone...I don't need Vizio complicating things by making it impossible to easily control the TV without one.
2) Love watching Amazon Prime? Good, you'll still be able to on your smartphone, but not on this TV. Vizio stopped working with Amazon in 2014. But that's nearly impossible to tell from the packaging or online information...
3) I have a lot of movies on USB drive; who doesn't. There is a USB port on the TV but according to the Help Desk tech it's only for firmware updates. (???) Why would there not be a working USB port to play media on a Smart TV?? This TV has a component input and three HDMI inputs for media and that's it.
The options through their 'smart' services are frankly lacking. This is not a TV for people looking to 'cut the cord' on cable.
Since buying this tv I've had to buy a Roku, USB (SS) to HDMI cables and a longer power cable (enjoy the 4' cable it comes with). I'm starting to wonder if I wouldn't have been better off getting a regular flat screen TV, since nothing that Vizio provided is worth a darn. At least I would have had a decent remote if I'd done that.
I would only recommend this TV to a friend if I was trying to offload that TV and considered his friendship expendable.

Most Vizio TVs get good reviews. The hardware on this unit is good, which is why I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1. But the remote is a JOKE. It does not have a numeric keypad. You have to flip through the channels one-by-one. This is true not only of the built-in remote. The cell phone app (which is awful in all regards) does not let you type in a channel number either. Nor can you do so with a universal remote. So, if you have any intent of watching traditional cable or over-the-air, this product is awful. I'm taking it back.
I bought this after all the generic replies that Vizio keeps posting here, claiming that they have updated the software. I downloaded all the updates. It makes no difference for this fatal problem.

I do not like the integration of the smart app. I don't want to have to rely on the use of my phone to watch tv

I read the reviews seen it had great picture and that seen one person say it didn't support Netflix but decided to buy it anyways. Great tv sound is pretty good for the speakers it has just turn on surround sound feature and it's good enough for me. Downloaded the Netflix app on my phone and am able to cast it on the tv no issues!!!! Overall a great tv for the price I think!! vizios are always great tvs for the price!!

I have a slightly smaller model of this 2016 Vizio TV and IMO it is an excellent TV. Especially when considering the price. The picture is excellent right out of the box. The sound is OK with plenty of volume considering the size of the speakers. The initial setup is a little awkward using a smartphone and the SmartCast app, but it does work. We have not needed the SmartCast app after we finished setting it up. My wife frequently "cast" (WIFI) YouTube videos from her tablet without any problems. The SmartCast app is not needed for "casting" WIFI. The supplied remote is very basic (channel, volume, input, etc.) but we mainly use the remotes for our HDMI connected cable box or Blu Ray player. I plan to buy another of the Vizio E series TVs for another room!

Good TV for the Money
Posted by: Nomoreiphone from: Fresno, CA on
I bought this as second tv for my bedroom. The picture quality is really good and has an auto dimming feature that works really well. I wish the TV had built in apps for streaming (netflix, amazon, etc...) but other than that I have been pleased with my purchase.

Awesome value and specs
Posted by: St3rox from: on
I was skeptical of the "smart" features of the TV due to how ambiguous the wording is in the product descriptions, but it ended up being perfect.
To be clear, it is not a "smart TV" (no built-in apps) it is a TV with built-in Google cast (Chromecast). I was planning to attach a Chromecast to my TV anyway, so that saved me an HDMI input.
However, the setup is a bit tedious, and does require a smartphone or tablet to completely set it up (you can skip the full setup and just use it as a TV, with no Google cast, if you don't want to go through the hassle).
It also relies on the smartphone/tablet to control certain settings (brightness, color balance, input naming, etc).
The picture quality is fantastic, although it can appear slightly washed out at high viewing angles. Do yourself a favor and manually go through every picture setting and adjust to your liking. The presets are terrible.

It's perfect for my apartment, tho does need a sound bar. Speakers in the back are not good for sound quality. Picture and colors are beautiful.
