    OK TV, worst remote EVER

    Bought this model to replace a similar Insignia tv/monitor. I need it for installing TV antenna systems, as well as doubling for monitor duty with surveillance system installations. For monitor use, I require 1080p HD resolution - which is hard to find in sub 26" class TVs. I prefer not to carry a TV and separate monitor, so wanted a small TV w/ 1080p res, and at least one HDMI input. Used to find TVs with component, A/V, HDMI, VGA, and RF inputs. That's becoming a rarity now... this tv has 2 HDMI inputs, astandard RF coax tuner input, as well as RJ45 LAN (internet) connection. No component (RGB), A/V, or VGA inputs, unfortunately. I have an older Insignia in same size which has all those inputs, as well as excellent performance. As to the pluses: Tuner sensitivity is very good, with excellent high signal tolerance. Video is also very good, with good color accuracy (for the $). There is very little if any motion blurring, smearing or blooming, which plague some tv's. Sound is typical in small flat panel TVs - functional but nothing more. It was inexpensive, so that's a plus... but does run a bit more than 720p units. On the minus side: TV exhibits intermittent poor RF connection at the coax (F81) input. Been like that since day one. Wiggling the cable connector causes the signal to drop severely to low levels, with resulting loss of video... extremely irritating, especially when using it to set up tv antenna systems. Essentially makes this TV useless for me for that purpose. Another issue is slow tv channel search (auto search) function: It is chronically SLOW. Not as bas as some (notably Sony), but takes 15 min or longer to run a complete search. My Insignia TVs of similar class search much faster. But, by FAR the worst part of this TV is the remote control. I saw the reviews on this TV before purchasing, which mentioned the poor remote operation. I thought they were probably exaggerated. Such is NOT the case. This TV remote is ATROCIOUS. It's the worst design I've ever seen. The layout is very poor, with terrible key response. Pressing a key once usually results in double presses, so if trying to jump one channel, it usually jumps two or more. Irritating to the point of throwing out the TV. The only effective solution is to use a different remote - either a universal type, or a programmable sat/cable type (assuming you can get it to work with this tv). Overall assessment on this model is only FAIR. RF performance and video is excellent, but the other lack of features and HORRIBLE remote control make this a "not recommended" model for me.

    I recently purchased the 24" Vizio HD SmartCast tv and overall I am decently satisfied with it. Since it does come with Google Chromecast you can send things to it as long as you're in a Google certified website or app, which is nice. However, it isn't a traditional Chromecast I don't believe. There are a very limited amount of apps that are downloaded to the tv, the rest have to be downloaded on a smart device and streamed to the television. This would be no problem if it were for things you would use less often, but it isn't. For example, I have DirectvNow, and I have to stream from my phone, which takes forever to load, and will only play around one episode on the guide before something goes wrong. I also can't pause a show for more than a three minutes without it skipping to the next episode at the end. I had to do the same thing when we were trying Sling. You would have to cast to the TV for most things you would want to do. The apps that are installed on the TV are Netflix, VUDU, Amazon Video, iHeart Radio, Xumo, Crackle, and some others that I've never heard of. The sound of it is decent although I am planning on buying a sound bar in the future to get rid of the rattle and odd effect that has happened on occasion. All in all, it is a decent tv that was a good purchase for how inexpensive it was and for how little I use it. If you're in a tight and need a decent tv for under $200 this would be the one.

    Great for Kitchen or Home Office

    Recently purchased this new Vizio model to slightly enlarge viewing from different spots in our kitchen. For a 1080p smart TV, this one has a truly stunning picture. Coupled with a Roku streaming player, it is perfect for our needs. Yes, the bottom-firing speakers are a bit anemic (only 2 watts) compared to some other sets, but I have found that the sound levels also can vary quite a bit from station to station, or between different apps. That said, the speakers do have their limits, but in the kitchen area, it is just about right. I would surmise the same would be true for a quieter home office set-up. At this screen size, you may have to consider prioritizing sound vs. picture. The beautiful Vizio picture in a 24" package made it an easy choice. Installation was very easy, perfectly following the start-up guide (just following the on-screen prompts is easy too), and it took only a couple of minutes. The absence of a digital audio out was not a problem due to the location and intended use of this TV. As reported in some reviews, the remote is quite sensitive to the touch, so it just takes some time and a light touch. Overall, this is a great option for a 1080p and a smaller screen for a kitchen, home office, or small bedroom, especially where gaming or big sound is not a factor. Despite comparatively weaker sound and a somewhat touchy remote, at this price point of $139, it is hard to beat such a great buy for a 24" smart TV.

    2018 Model With Analog Input and 1080p Panel!

    I was in the market for a 24-inch television for the corner of a computer desk. I had a 32-inch television there previously, but it overpowered the desk. During my research, I was disappointed to learn that most 2018 models in this size lacked composite/component analog inputs. Thankfully this model does, in the form of two 3.5mm jacks on the rear of the unit. I could not find the answer to this online prior to purchasing the TV, so note that the requisite RCA female to 3.5mm 4-pole maie adapters do not come in the box. They will have to be purchased separately, but are readily available online from other retailers (except for Vizio themselves, strangely). Other than the analog input compatibility, the other great selling point to this unit is its 1080p panel, which is usually considered overkill in 24-inch sets. I would have been happy with 720p, but the bump in resolution never hurts. My only complaint about this television is that all of the inputs are directly on the rear panel instead of underneath or on the side. Anything that needs to be plugged/unplugged repeatedly (such as headphones) has to reach all the way around the unit. Along these lines, when headphones are plugged into the television, you cannot bypass the audio from the headphone jack and redirect it to the speakers via the on-screen menus. The 32-inch model this replaced (also a Vizio) had this functionality, which meant I could switch from headphones to TV speakers without physically unplugging the headphones. A nice to have.

    Excellent pic & sound with an HD source

    Setup was straigh forward and relatively quick and the Wi-Fi connection has proven to be stable. The picture is excellent with an HD signal and the sound is better than my Samsung Smart TV. Note that you don't need an internet connection if you don't intend to use the Smart TV features. The Smart TV functions are different from what you will find in a Samsung. The Insignia has some apps installed such as Netflix & Hulu but unlike Samsung or smart phones, Insignia doesn't have an app 'store' from which to install additional apps. To use this TV with apps other than the few which are pre installed you need an Android device. You load the app for the streaming service you want on your Android device, play the video on your Android device and then cast the video & sound to the Insignia TV. If you have an iPhone or iPad the ability to cast the output to the TV is limited without the addition of Apple TV hardware. Note that I said that the picture was excellent with an HD signal. If your source such as your cable subscription doesn't include HD service (usually at an extra cost as is the case with Comcast), then you probably won't be happy with the picture as this TV doesn't do a very good job of upscaling (going from a standard definition signal to an HD display). Using the Insignia remote, set the display to wide mode.

    Great TV for RVs.

    Looking and researching TVs in the 24 and 32 inch size classes, I found this awesome little Vizio. 24 inch TVs (or even 32s for that matter) rarely have support for Full 1080p HD but this TV has it and it does wonders for using it as an external monitor on a PC with an HDMI cable. The Smart TV Chromecast functions work very well, but can be laggy, The speakers are a weak point on this TV. There is no bass and hardly any depth to the sound (not great for music or movies), but they are crisp, clear and loud, especially for talk shows or dialogue. Small TVs like this because of their limited size generally have subpar speakers so this isn't the fault of this particular TV model. I'm using this TV in an RV environment and for what it is, it is a great unit. It only weights 3.5 kilograms (7.7 lbs) and is easy to carry with one person making it great for portable environments like an RV The picture is very good. Clear and bright colors, deep blacks and contrast. This is light years ahead of anything else in the 24 inch size class. Awesome unit. Super satisfied with this purchase.

    Nice features for a small tv

    This 24 inch model has a lot of the features of its big brothers, and it was easy to set up and configure the smart apps. The picture is great and the sound is reasonable. I specifically bought it for its portability to take back and forth to the patio and outdoor living spaces. I intended to attach a table top stand to it instead of the wide-spread legs so that it would sit better on top of small surfaces like a small stool. The tv does have VESA 100x100 mounting holes but attaching a table top stand is challenging because the power cord attaches exactly in the bottom center part of the tv that interferes with attaching most stand designs. If you desire to attach a stand you will need to find one that has a backward offset from the back of the tv so that the cord can be attached. Close-fitting snug stands will not work. I actually had to drill a large hole in the vertical riser of the stand I bought to allow the power cord to be attached through the hole. For any Vizio company folks out there monitoring reviews, consider moving the cord to an offset position a few inches to the side to better support use of table top stands. Overall still very satisfied.

    Pros: -Great reception. Over the air channels that used to work sporadically are now locked in solid. -SmartTV channel offerings are better than my last. It's a boarder offering. -The built in Chromecast works great and provides additional content sources. -The picture is great. -Sound quality is good and volume output is fine for me. Others, however, may find it lacking. -Connectivity options are great for a TV of this size and price. Cons: There is only one, but a big one for me. The remote is designed and constructed poorly. The control keys are overly sensitive. I often get a double click result when pushing buttons. That said, it is a full featured remote. Were is not for the shortcomings of the user interface/remote, I would have rated this TV 5 stars. I am pleased with every other aspect of this TV. I would recommend this TV to a friend, but only after full disclosure.

    Great Small 1080P SMART TV

    These days, it's hard to find a brand name 1080P SMART tv under 32". In fact, none is available from all the big names. Besides the Vizio, the only option is super-off-brands like Sceptre, Element etc. So, being limited in my options, I bought this for my kitchen. I must say I am surprised with the quality. I still won't put it as good as Samsung or LG 1080P 24" TVs from a few years ago, but it's pretty good. It has Chromecast built-in, so that's a plus also. The sound could be a little better, but the TV is so small, it's probably not feasible to put better speakers. Overall, I am happy with the purchase. One more thing - the picture on BB's product page shows the 32" version of this TV, which has a much slimmer bezels than the 24" version.

    Couldn't Even Get it Set Up

    I bought this TV as something cheap to place in front of my treadmill. I wanted a Smart TV since the majority of my entertainment is YouTube or Netflix. First off, I agree with others that the remote is a horrible design and cheap. It is extremely smooth, and the seam in the middle has sharp edges. I know this is a budget TV, but c'mon. Now onto the TV. In order to use it, you have to go through the setup screens. I got through the first two, but once I got to the third (I believe for setting up the Wi Fi) the screen just stayed gray. No buttons did anything, neither did turning it off and on multiple times or unplugging it. I reached out to Vizio on Twitter, and no help. I eventually managed to get into the settings menu by pressing a series of buttons on the remote, and it still would not recognize my Wi Fi at all. Needless to say, I took it back to the store a day later, and purchased a Samsung (Model UN32N5300AFXZA), which was set up in a few short minutes.

    What a wonderful little TV! I wanted something small that could be easily moved around and this is perfect. The picture is clear without having to mess with the settings, better than I’d expected. It’s also a smart TV but I’ve hooked up my Amazon Fire Stick to it and they work well together. It’s got 2 HDMI ports. Was very easy to install and connect to WIFI, didn’t even look at the manual. It’s got a good sized remote with buttons for Netflix, Hulu, etc. The unit is all plastic, including the stand, but sturdy. Sound is good enough. TVs I’d compared in this price range were 720p (this one is 1080p) and did not have the smart tv function. For the price paid, I got more than I expected.

    Biggest issue was remote - GOOD TV otherwise

    My mother wanted a small TV in addition to a large LG TV watched in their bedroom. I set it up for my parents and shortly their after my mother was wondering why the channels were changing for no reason. Turns out the LG TV's remote commands were accepted on the VIZIO TV making it almost impossible to get one channel on LG TV in same room and Vizio TV in same room. The SMART aspect was very confusing for my mother to use (OK for me). She often asked why all these menus, can't I just turn the channel? Luckily, I could still return TV to BestBuy (yah elite membership). My recommendation; if you are only using this TV and have NO other TV anywhere around AND you are OK with the menu (should test tv at store), then go for it, it is a good TV. However, if you have other TV's in your home and you buy the TV. Set it up quickly and test for remote issues mentioned above (and on internet). Hope it works for you!

    Poor contrast/color

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Picture clarity is spot on, though I had to drop the Sharpness all the way to 0 to prevent fragments from over-sharpening. I like the spread legs as opposed to a center stand; makes it feel more solid. As a previous reviewer mentioned the remote is a bit chintzy but that's minor with the app-link feature to replace it. My biggest complaint however is the contrast and color quality. It's extremely poor, nothing at all like I saw on the demo model in-store. Out of the box everything just looked dull and washed out. I then spent the next four and a half hours tweaking the presets and custom color tuner, referring to google and various tech forums for input by users who also dealt with this same model, and it still barely makes it passable. Very disappointed overall. This is my fourth Vizio (tenth or eleventh if you count family) and in my experience they're typically rock solid out of the box. Regretfully I'll be returning this one to the retailer and seeking another monitor instead.

    I bought this as a bedroom tv and was happy with it until I realized you cannot get HBO Go on it. I like to stream HBO shows on demand and Vizio does not support HBO Go. You can use HBO Now, which is for a separate paid subscription but not HBO Go when you already pay for HBO through your tv provider. This makes no sense and is very disappointing. I may not have bought this tv had I known that and will NOT be buying another Vizio for this reason. It is unfortunate because it is a nice tv, great pic and sound. Only other issue has been some problems with sound and lip sync on certain channels, I cannot seem to get it adjusted right and it can be pretty annoying. I will stick with Samsung from now on.

    I cannot fully review this TV because all of the wonderful features are not being used. The TV belongs to my cousin who is a Senior and does not have internet. So, it's being used as just a standard TV. Now, the quality of the picture is outstanding (vibrant, clear, and crisp). Even the small details can be seen in the picture, i.e. facial blemishes, pimples, etc. This is a replacement for the kitchen TV that stopped working. My cousin wanted another Vizio because she has one in the family room she has had for years. For the most part, we are very happy with her purchase of this Vizio TV. She just has to get used to the newest technology she can use without the internet on this one that her other older Vizio doesn't have.

    I bought this tv as well as a Samsung and compared both. The family agreed the Vizio was superior in color and sound. We returned the Samsung. 11 months later, the Vizio would only turn on when I unplugged and replugged. As it was under warranty, it was sent in for repair. 5 months later, same problem. Now it's out of warranty. Vizio Tech was super nice but explained that at this point, I'm better off just buying a new one. Not worth the expense of repair out of my own pocket. We chuckled at the craziness since we both have tv's that are much, much older still running with no problems. Thought I should warn others to stay away from this model.

    I wanted a 1080p TV for my apartment. I use a large nightstand as my TV stand, so the largest TV I could fit was a 24-inch. For the price, this is a good set. The smart features work well, but the system operates rather slowly, especially in the Smartcast menu, and it's sometimes hard to get the remote's beam to hit the reciever from my bed, which is about 8 feet away from the TV. Also, I really wish this TV had an RCA input. I have a Wii, and even plugging in the Insignia HDMI-RCA adapter didn't work. Otherwise, I love how the TV has a built-in Chromecast and the smart features work well, just with some delay, not to mention requiring precision with aiming the remote.

    The TV picture is fine. I paired it with a Vizio sound bar that was a year older, which sounds pretty good. And being Vizio, it recognizes it and auto connects when I turn on the TV (ARC HDMI). But the remote makes me wish I had another TV. It's lighter than a Bic pen, and thinner, which makes it hard to hold and use. The quad function selector is a single plate that has to be touched just right to get the desired result. It's not something that works in a dimly lit room. I have it in a bedroom, not a kitchen. It's also so light I can barely hold it. Wish I had waited for the Samsung to come back in stock in this size.

    Usually, you unbox a tv, or any other electronic possession, plug it in, connect to cable or an antenna, run a channel or stations search, and you’re done. Unfortunately, you’re not done if you purchased this tv. First of all, the tv sound requires you to push the volume to 80-85% just to hear normal programming. Secondly, and most vexing, the synch was off, as the video did not match the audio, resulting in a spectacle akin to a badly-synched language-dubbed science fiction movie from the 50’s. Why Vizio has to add a lip-synch adjustment in their Audio settings is beyond me, but you have to adjust it to be able to watch. Had I known this, I definitely would not have purchased this make.. live and learned.

    Nice Small 1080P Smart TV

    Posted
    JustAnotherBBCustomer

    I picked this up to put in a small RV, replacing an older 720p TV with a built-in DVD player. Installation and setup was a snap and, while the initial channel scan did seem to take an overly long time, it found channels the older set couldn't. The picture is terrific and the sound volume is OK... I may be using a powered external speaker, which I had to use with the previous TV. The remote is the weak point... markings are not high-contrast and the buttons are too small. I'll probably pick up a universal remote, or see if the Blu Ray player I already had can be made to work with it. Even so, the whole package is very good.
