    Great bang for the buck

    I bought this as a holdover TV until my 4k TV arrived and this would be relegated to bedroom duty. It has great functionality for both analog OTA signals and for the native apps and HDMI signals. I connected to my home wifi network very easily, and setup was a breeze. There are a couple of downsides to this TV for me, these may not be negatives for all purchasers. For one, the TV does not support 4k. Let's face it, 1080p is a 2nd tier resolution at best, especially on an LED/LCD platform. As OLED becomes more popular, look for 8k resolution on the horizon. I'm no critical viewer, but even I could tell the difference coming from a 4k set to the 1080. For bedroom duty, a fitness space, or other, non-critical viewing, this is probably adequate. If you're looking to be wowed by a picture, look elsewhere. Second, there were a TON of updates that needed to be done before I could use this set. I needed to let the TV sit and run updates for nearly an hour (on a gig-speed connection, not exactly dial-up) before I could access the apps built in to the TV. That said, the built-in apps were very good. Though, I did notice a few key omissions: HBO, ESPN, NBC Sports, etc. Since I connected an Apple TV, this wasn't an issue, but might be if this is what you're looking for. On the whole, I would probably recommend this set. For certain uses, it is ideal. For some users, it may also be ideal. I'll be looking for this set, albeit in a slightly larger size, as a gift for an aging grandparent come Christmas.

    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...

    Compares well with peer sets

    The setup and operation was a snap, with good WiFi reception from my other room's WiFi router. Integrates with no problem with my TiVo satellite box HDMI output, and my DVD HDMI output. I am using the analog audio output to a Bose audio unit to get good quality sound, that I'll replace with a soundbar over time. The 10w audio was a bit tinny to my ear, as I'm replacing a 20w audio HDTV. For others, perhaps the audio would be acceptable. That'll be true of any 32" range HDTV with 10w audio -- there are almost no 32" TVs with >10w audio. SOAPBOX: It's like the days when toy started the "batteries not included" devolution. The manufacturers compete on price (blame us?!) and so now it's "quality audio not included". Like its peers 10w sound (5w per channel) is simply insufficient to produce good sound, and the 32" range is unlikely to be hooked up to a home theater audio system. So now just like buying batteries separate from the toy, one must pay at least $100 extra for a separate sound bar, and the included internal audio goes to waste. Sigh.

    First TV was brought home mounted and turned on worked for a hour and quit. Wouldn’t hold power and wouldn’t completely turn on. Called Visio they did a few test things over the phone and determined it was in fact shot and said we could send it to them to repair or replace or we could take it back to Best Buy since it was just purchased. We chose the easier of the two and took it to the store. They checked it to see it didn’t work and replaced it with another one. No issues great service thank you BB. The new one has worked fine since knock on wood. About a month now. Picture is solid for lower end TV ( it’s in a kids room) it has some nice features and the smart WiFi hooks up well. I would recommend the TV for the price point for a bedroom or secondary area for tv or games. But it started out a little rocky.

    I was looking for some Tv's for a game room, particularly for video games but sport watching as well. I already have a larger Vizio 4k Tv for the bedroom and I am very pleased with it over the years so I started looking at Vizio's first. Considering the distance I would be from the Tv I knew I had to get a 1080p resolution. The picture is very good for gaming, as well as anything else. The sound is sufficient, not bad but nothing to brag about. The only negative comments I have which is prevents the 5 star rating is only having 2 HDMI ports and that the remotes work for both Tv's. Meaning if I want to adjust the volume on one it will simultaneously change the volume on the other, which I think most people won't have this issue lol. If I could I would give the Tv a rating of 4.5 stars.

    My calibrations for Picture and Sound

    I did not like the out-of-box defaults for both picture and sound and made my own adjustments. I like Vivid, but it was too strong, and audio from the speakers was difficult to hear. If your into navigating the menu system, you can create your own picture profile as well as adjust the sound settings. I think the settings I have attached greatly improved both. Maybe these will also work for you. I am using the TV for over-the-air and Netflix through a TIVO box.

    Great colors, clean and responsive. Audio is good, but no tone controls. I don't and won't use the 'smart' features, and merely have the unit hooked directly to my cable line - no cable box or DVR. It's a bedroom set to check weather in the morning & watch the occasional show other times. Seems as though it'll be very dependable. It's certainly easy to set up and play with. Sometimes finding the 'right' aspect ratio can be an experience, but that's an issue I also have when I play my main set through the line only (seldom). I'd buy a Vizio again, and may do that soon.

    Great Smart TV for The Price

    Wanted a smart TV to just watch outside on the patio of our new house at night after work. We mostly use Netflix or watch You Tube Videos and don't have it hooked to cable. I had 2 picked out and this had better specs for a little more money and was on sale. We have a 60 inch Vizio that we just love. We love the built in casting and all the smart features. For what we use it for sitting on our table outside and sitting so close speakers are fine to me. My husband says they make a vibrating sound he doesn't like it and want's a different one but I think it's too late to return. I don't notice and love the TV picture is nice too. Great TV for the price!

    Great picture, so-so sound, uses RCA connectors

    It was only after I got this TV home that I realized how good the picture was. I was prepared for mediocre sound, and wasn't disappointed, but I did discover a sound-menu item entitled "Bass Boost" which somewhat made up for this weakness. Am considering a sound bar or some kind of auxiliary speakers. Meanwhile, the TV does have good old RCA jacks for connecting to an audio system, instead of HDMI plugs which seem to becoming the norm. If you have vintage high-end amplification, like I do, and this size TV is what will fill the bill, it's the only TV of it's size that I found has the classic red/white audio connectors,

    Decent TV to get the job done

    I am not a consistent TV watcher. I have a select amount of shows I watch and I stick to them. Therefore this TV does what it is supposed to do. I would complain that the Volume doesn't get that loud but for a small bedroom, you shouldn't have too much of a problem. I do sometimes have trouble with the SmartCast not connecting or recognizing my device, but I rarely need to use it so it's not enough that I would take it back. If you are looking for an HD picture, and small Smart TV capabilities such as Netflix and Youtube, this TV is worth the money.

    Really cool option at a modest price point...

    This LED 32" flat screen caught my attention when I saw that it was 1080p. There are not that many options available in that size with 1080p, as most of what's in the market is 720p. I considered the price as a really good addition, especially because we needed 2 of them for our kids bedrooms. They are very happy with the new TV's as they are upgrading from old 720p LCD to this LED screen. Much brighter and really good definition in the picture. Being they are smart TV's, it also saves on any cable TV option for their rooms, since they hardly watch regular TV anymore.

    Replaced a much older 32" flat screen and I'm happy with the product. Picture is good and we make good use of the smartcast capability, playing videos on our phones on the tv. My only complaint is with the sound - it's not as full/powerful as I would like. I think the expectation is that you will hook up to external audio capability...we aren't going to do that. The sound is not terrible - not by any means. It's just a bit weak. And I have tried the other sound settings, too.

    Many features

    WiFi smart cast offers easy access to netflix, hulu and amazon prime if you have accounts with them. Response is a little slow. Picture preferences offer several views. The remote is horrible. It is cheaply made and one of the worst I 've ever used. Feels flimsy and overly sensitive, hard to navigate and to use keyboard. Entering my account information for subscription services like netflix took many frustrating attempts because of the poor quality remote. Other than the remote, the picture quality is excellent.

    We weren't interested in a big flat screen TV...we don't watch that much on a regular basis. We found the Vizio to have the sharpest picture compared to the other 32" TVs...so went with that as our guiding principle. The "stand" for the TV is ok...actually very stable but the placement of the stand "legs" was a tad too big for our TV stand...but we made do. The remote is ok...wouldn't say it is the highest quality and we've sometimes just relied upon the operational buttons on the back of the device. SmartCast is wonderful...a great feature.

    I got this TV for a guest room in my home. I wanted something not too small, not too large. I never had heard of this brand but my trusted advisor at Best Buy said he had nothing but compliments. I loved the picture at the store and it was equally as nice when I got it home. I have been using it for guests for 2 months now and I love it. And the price of which I purchased it made it all the more sweeter. I recommend this product without hesitation.

    We put this in our home office/computer room. Tv-to-couch distance is about 8 feet. Sound is not powerful but clear and sufficient. Picture is good in color and clarity; size fine for a multipurpose room where I'm not going for best-quality viewing experience. It's a best-bang-for-my-buck when I wanted a little tv. I could take or leave the Vizio SmartCast feature, but I guess if you like your shows aggregated it could be useful.

    There is only one big issue I have so far and that is that the built in chromecast is not syncing to my devices. However, this could just be my wifi so take that with a grain of salt. The connection to the internet isnt great and it laggs on an otherwise smooth wifi. My other devices connect and stream just fine. Also, the speakers are a little quiet but that's about it for negatives. The occasional lag doesn't really bother me so long as my roommate isn't playing Fortnight lol

    Looking for a 32 to 43 inch for several weeks at several stores. Samsung, LG, and other models were looked at. While in Best Buy, I noticed several brands with features I wanted but the prices were too high. I noticed the 32 inch Vizio was at a reasonable price with the features I desired, and having own one for several years, I knew it was dependable. Purchased it and it only took approximately 15 minutes to set it up. Good Deal for Good Quality!

    This is a great TV for my use. The picture is of good quality, sound is a bit weak, but I was able to hook up a set of computer speakers with a small sub woofer on the audio output connector. The smart features are nice once you figure out how to set up the Google crap. Only problem was, I was trying to cast Google photos to the Tv and it wouldn't do it! Every thing else would cast, YouTube Pandora etc.

    Not a bad tv or gaming monitor. Games are much crisper and cleaner than i expected. My issues are that the tv will change from one input to another, turn off, or the audio not sync with video. Unplugging and plugging it back in will fix it, but one of the issues always comes back...could be a day, could be a week. I havent seen anyone else write about the ussue so it could just be mine. Would recommend if thats the case.
