      Hello springs410, for audio if you do not like the sound you may want to try turning off the advanced audio setting volume leveling and surround sound to see if you prefer the sound with those setting disabled. If you are having issue getting your TV to work properly with using the SmartCast features please give us a call at 877-878-4946 so we can assist you with this. VIZIO

    This is a good TV for the money. The onscreen interface is a bit confusing, but all in all a good value.

    Purchased for a spare bed room, tested out for a few weeks. Slow user interface and poor options for streaming. Requires a separate device to play DTV Now despite the logo being right there on the box. I returned for a TCL Roku TV. Much better. Don't buy this for the smart features.

      Hello 129ProUser, The SmartCast input does have limited applications installed and you cannot add extra apps to the input. We are continuously evaluating new applications for possible addition to this screen. In the meantime you can cast any of the thousands of Chromecast enabled applications (DirectTv Now being one of them) to the TV from any mobile device on your network. VIZIO

    Great picture/OTT support; lousy controls

    Agree with others that the picture is great; sound is ok, but routing to an amplifier/speaker system is best. Nice that it supports Chromecast (fine for me as compared to another reviewer's experience it seems), and big plus that it supports YouTube-TV as well as (if not better than) the Roku Express that we have on our big TV. Con: definitely the remote! The controls on it are hard to see, and use due to faint markings (back-lighting much needed), and smallness of the buttons. The user interface (UI) is not very intuitive, and takes a lot of "practice" to figure out - i.e. switching inputs takes multiple passes to get to the desired one, and "translating" what the non-HDMI ones names mean takes some trial and error. For example the antenna input "name" is the currently tuned-in station number/call letters, so it is not the same on the menu choices from one time to the next if channels are changed much. MUTE BUTTON just stopped working! Will check with Vizio support to see if I can get a remote replacement...

    Great Picture; Poor Software

    For a 32" TV, the picture and black levels were really good due to the full array local dimming backlighting. The sound was also decent for a 32" TV. Google Chrome casting worked great from apps on a tablet too. However, we ran into a couple issues which made this TV a pain in the butt to keep. If you turn the TV off while Netflix is on, turn the TV back on and change inputs to watch over-the-air antenna channels, you will not be able to change channels using the remote or the phone app remote until going back to Netflix then back to antenna. When you're a cord cutter like my parents, who primarily watch Netflix and local TV, this is a big pain to do on a regular basis. We reset the TV and it started doing it for both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. We exchanged it for another unit, same thing. @@@@@@@@ We ran through remote and TV reset steps with support on both. @@@@@@@ . A Vizio technician came out and verified that it was a software issue. It wouldn't be as annoying if there were a TV button on the remote, instead you have to select the input button and push it 3 or 4 times. My mother was going to keep the TV and just deal with the above until it stopped connecting to the apps. It was connected to the internet but it didn't register it as such. Nothing would reconnect it allowing it to open Netflix except for a 30 minute long factory reset process. There are other interface, settings and remote nuisances which were annoying such as the no TV (antenna) button on the remote. It was slow to open apps taking up to 5 seconds. This time we exchanged it for the just released Samsung N5300. Not as deep darks but it's better in just about every other way. Zero problems and a lot of conveniences. The smart and antenna interfaces are much better. You just hit exit on the remote to get to TV and there is a built in guide for local stations which is really convenient. My mom likes that the remote has a sleep timer button. It's zippy - entering an app is instant. Note that you need to change sound to Optimized but I'll probably get my mom a small sound bar. Cannot recommend this Vizio with all of the issues it had aside from a good picture.
