    Fair Picture, Good Features, Audio Sys Design Flaw

    The picture is fine. Takes a bit more tweaking than an E-Series to get right, esp. w/ saturation. Off-axis just as bad as any -VA type panel. Great that it's 1080p Supposedly most Ex-C2 Series and lower Vizio panels are -Native- 60Hz (not "effective"), so maybe 60Hz isn't so bad in this set. . I didn't notice any of the Cable TV, or VOD playback blurriness attributed to D-Series in other reviews, ex: by rtings.com. It looked fine. Bootup-time & Smart functions are just as fast to start, or maybe 10% faster than my E40-C2, so that's also good. . Haven't tried them, but headphone & VGA on the back is pretty good to have. I've read mixed-reviews using it as a computer monitor, though. . The real problem is the Audio System. It's not that it's tinny-sounding. It just distorts the Bass frequencies of all the music I tried on it. Anything like a bass-guitar, or something low & more sustained than ex. a kick-drum hit. . -I also verified this on 3 separate units in 2 different stores with the exact same settings, and same music, at reasonable (not crazy) listening volumes. This is with surround on or off, and even Volume-leveling on or off, Eq: flat. Obvs. volume-leveling makes it much much worse. . I'm guessing it's an Underpowered Amp with power-stiffening caps that are way too small. I found photos of the E40-C2 and D24h-C1 motherboards online (because the D1 is so new, it was unavailable) and the caps near the 4 220nH output inductors (bottom left on each board) do look smaller on the D24. More evidence in that you have to turn the volume up -a lot- when vol-leveling is off, to get any loudness out of the set at all. And when vol-leveling is on, it seems like too much preamp, into not enough power-amp, into small speakers== bass frequency distortion. . I A/B'd this against the E40-C2 and the E does not distort. -Funny b/c the speakers are the same width & only about ~1.25 inches longer. I emailed Vizio, but I'm sure they'll just ignore it, instead of making an improved Rev.2 board. . The only temporary fix seems to be going into EQ and turning the 100Hz and 300Hz bands all the way down to -12. . So, fine I guess. With some compromises. The SmartTV functionality will be better than the 24" Samsung 4500-series. If you don't need/want any Smart-functionality, maybe the regular 24" Samsuing 4000-series might have as-good/better picture and possibly better (at least non-distorting) sound. -If you can put up with 720p.

    I had purchased an AC/DC adapter from a website for my Alienware CPU but when it arrived the part that plugs into the wall socket didn't exist. I contacted them about the error and they said they would look into it. I didn't have the time to wait any longer (I had already been trying to fix this situation for two months) so I went in to Best Buy to get help. After showing them a picture of the AC/DC adapter and the cord that came with it, they confirmed that this AC Power Cable would meet the specs. It has worked perfectly and I really like that the cord is so long. I don't have to move all my equipment around just to make sure my CPU can reach the power source. Totally worth the price, especially since the other company still hasn't contacted me to fix the problem.

    What a great item! It was so hard to find... looked everywhere under the sun for it, even online, but Best Buy was the only place that had it! Customer service in store was awesome, but after 30 or so minutes of searching for the item on site and online to check othe stores, I walked around and found it myself in the meantime. They were as helpful as they could be to their expertise, but even told me I should work there, due to finding it myself when they didn't know it existed in theur store. :) (wasn't showing up on their screen when searching store inventory) overall, great product and happy experience!

    This is a basic connection that is found in many large devices we use at home. Receivers, monitors, computers etc.. I was using the same power cord for two devices that aren't used daily because if I'm using one, chances are I won't need to use the other but since Best Buy offers these basic cables at such low prices I figured I'd simplify my life by giving both devices their own power cord. Now I won't ever have to choose between connecting a monitor with my laptop or the industrial heat press if I should ever find myself in such a tough position. LOL! #americanLife

    This is your basic computer power cord. I was in a hurry so I bought it in the store at Best Buy. It's available at various online retailers (try that online auction site) for a lot less, but then it would take more time to ship. There is nothing magical about this cord and I really can't imagine I would have been disappointed with the online version. But As I mentioned, I needed it right away. So it works but it is more money than I would have liked to pay. So try to plan better than me and buy it for less elsewhere.

    Bought it for my television

    I bought this plug when I lost the one I had during a move. I went to a Best Buy and a Associate pointed me to a printer section. I thought it was weird to use a printer cable for a television but it works. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the old cable came out of the tv and bent to run along the television. This is only important if you hang your television on the wall. Other then that it works and if you're in a bind and don't want to wait for a new one in the mail then this is your bet.

    Got an electronics cord that needs replacing?

    If you have an electronics cord that needs replacing, you can find it at Best Buy. I purchased this cord to replace a wireless microphone receiver cord that came apart. I was not sure that Best Buy would carry it, but when I stopped by and asked, the sales associate took me right to the rack where it was. I had already tried a few other places I thought would have it and they did not! Should have known Best Buy would have it!

    Bad power cord for my desktop computer

    This was a replacement power cord for my home desktop computer, the original started to not make great contact which would cause the computer to "die" often at inopportune times and usually be very difficult to restart. Rather than bend the tangs on the back of the computer I bought a replacement power cord to see if that would improve the situation, once installed in fit tightly and the computer quit dying on us.

    Here I was, out of town about 400 miles away, and no cord for my CPAP Machine used to treat Sleep Apnea. Knowing it was a standard desktop computer plug, started thinking about where to find one and when Best Buy came up on my Garmin GPS, made a beeline for it. It was clear sailing after that. Thank you Best Buy!!!

    We lost the power cord to a TV that had been in storage for a few years. All we needed was a generic power cord. We went to several stores looking for a cord, but many salespeople didn't understand what we needed. Finally, we found a salesman at Best Buy on Powers who knew what we needed. It's amazing how much the "cordless" era made a simple task turn into such a challenge.

    I actually ordered over the phone

    I ordered it over the phone. Which I would recommend to anyone rather than just ordering it online. I've ordered from Best Buy Marketplace and I would never recommend it to anyone. If you're ordering over the phone you have a store number and also sales associate number to go to if there's a problem. Unlike online which you're most likely to get the run around and nothing gets fixed. But I am happy with my purchase.

    After unpacking the cable I noticed it had a three prong make connector that looked like it would fit into my wall outlet and and a three prong female connector that looked like it would fit into my computer. I gave it a try and it worked perfectly!!!. I highly recommend this product if find yourself in a situation where you need to plug your computer into a wall outlet.

    I bought one of these a few years ago to replace another power cable that had gone up and I recently bought another one for me to move my computer around while doing tech work on it and still be able to power it up since my main cable is currently in the cable tubes running around my desk. Much easier than having to rerun the cable or taking the computer back to my desk all the time.

    I got a company laptop few months ago, with all its accessories; however, over a period of time due to lack of managing pc bag, I lost my adapter cable. Forgot the name of the person who suggested me this cable to use with my laptop's adapter & believe me it worked like a charm. I'm truly amazed with the confidence of BestBuy's sales agent that he knew what I needed. Thanks BestBuy.

    I plugged this into my projector and now it has the power to rock any presentation. It is the best way to get that sweet electricity into your machines. If you weren’t aware, machines eat electricity like humans eat food. This is a good feeding tube for machines.

    I lost the power cord for my Westinghouse LCD TV when moving out of state. At first I panicked and thought I was going to have to spend a fortune ordering a replacement from the manufacturer, but then I found this cord at Best Buy and problem solved! Less than $10, the cord works flawlessly and I believe it's longer than the original cord which makes it even more versatile.

    We bought this cord for our daughter who had misplaced the power cord to her pc in a recent move. An employee at Best Buy helped us and assured us that even though this was a generic brand cord, it was compatible with her Dell pc. Our daughter hooked it up to the computer and it worked perfectly. Now if she could just remember her Microsoft account password!!

    My cable I carry in my backpack appears to have had a fault in it. I just needed this to supply power to the brick of a Dell M6800. It works as expected, though I was shocked by the price, for these things are a dime a dozen. If I was at home I wouldn't have needed this, but I was traveling. I recommend asking friends if they have any of these laying around

    Exactly what it says it is and works like a charm. I moved and lost my subwoofer power cord in the transition, and not only did this power an enormous 12" Klipsch subwoofer well, but the cord is better quality build-wise than the one it's replacing.
