    PQ at 1080p not great

    A couple of years ago I bout A 40" Vizio with 1080p resolution and the picture quality was very good. A tad over-saturated colors as others have pointed out, but very good. Recently I bought a 4K version of 40" Vizio and am somewhat disappointed in the picture quality at 1080p, which accounts for most of the currently available streaming contest. The picture is not bright even on Vivid settings and off-center viewing is poor. The sound quality is also inferior to the older Vizio using external speakers. They must be using a cheaper sound card/circuit, I would return it except for the fact that at 4K picture quality is pretty good, although not the best, and is better than the cheapest 4K TVs I've seen. Too bad Vizio doesn't offer an earphone out. Computer speakers, which are much less expensive and better quality than sound bars work well using the earphone out instead of the analog out, which produces a slightly echoy distorted sound.

      Hello codeblue, Thank you for the feedback. A few things that might help you get the kind of picture quality you are looking for. First, make sure the Display is getting a hi-definition or 4K signal. This means making sure that you're source device (like a cable/satellite box) is capable of HD or 4K, and that it's connected to your Display with an HDMI cable that can deliver the HD or 4K picture. You can also change between pre-set picture modes on the display by pressing the PIC button on your remote. This will toggle between a few picture setting that look good in different situations. If your display is in a bright room try Vivid or Calibrated. If it’s in a dimmer room try Calibrated Dark.

      As televisions continue to have larger screens with thinner profiles and sleeker bezels, there is less room for large speakers. To help get the best audio quality out of your VIZIO televisions speakers, we’ve included settings like DTS Studio Sound to provide the highest performance possible, while maintaining the thin, sleek, bezel-less profile of your television. If you’d like any help adjusting your audio settings feel free to contact VIZIO support at 855-833-3221.

      For top of the line audio performance you may also look into purchasing a VIZIO Sound Bar, there are several models available with wireless subwoofers for enhanced bass, rear speakers for true surround sound, and our new line of Atmos Sound Bars. VIZIO

    First off this TV's picture is great, I didn't give it 5 stars for 2 reasons. First straight out of the box it took over 30 minutes for it to do all the firmware updates before any picture could be seen. It took so long the Geek squad barely had time to setup the remote before they were told by their boss to move on to the next appointment. Second it doesn't have YouTube as one of the apps which is strange as Chromecast is built in. This mean I either need to use my Blu-ray player or cast from my phone to watch any YouTube videos; a very silly oversight.

    THE WORST TV I'VE EVER HAD....

    This TV replaced a Samsung 40 inch 6300 SmartTV. By comparison, this Vizio has the worst color & clarity...worst than my Sony television (the one with the speakers on the side). I installed it yesterday & no matter how many settings I tried to adjust, there just was no clarity to the picture, so I'm taking it back today to trade for a Samsung or a Sony. I was disappointed in the Tinley store because they didn't recommend another tv for the 40" replacement I was looking for. Jack from the Countryside store recommended this Vizio. Unfortunately, it was not a good tv.

    Connectivity is terrible. Every time I turn it on I spend 30 minutes trouble shooting why it won't connect . I end up having to reset my modem and go through the whole set up. At minimum it logs me out of my Hulu account. This drives me crazy. My other Verizon TV doesn't do this. I didn't return it before the dead line because I saw Spectrum service vehicles where I live so I thought there was a problem with the internet service.

    pretty easy to set up. I like the Smartcast feature which allows you to stream from your iPAD or smart phone. Picture in 4K has very good quality. Has 3 HDMI inputs for Blu-ray player, Roku, etc. I do wish it had more apps like Youtube and Pandora. Overall for the price, it is a worthwhile purchase.

    I bought 2 of these TVs to use as computer displays and they work great. They are also Dolby Vision enabled, so that is a nice bonus. Also have them on the beta for Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit and working nicely as well. Highly recommended.

    Picture is great for the money. Sound is mediocre, which is to be expected. I bought a sound bar to fix that. Plenty of smart features. Love to cast YouTube directly to the TV; so easy. Motion handling isn't bad either.

    I purchased this to fit in my RV, First let me tell you that after much research. This is the largest Screen with the Smallest Package out there. All other tv's that are this size are only 39" Screens. Great Product

    120Hz refresh rate is not actual. Backlight strobe

    120Hz refresh rate is not actual. This tv is another product advertised as 120 refresh rate. It's 60 refresh with strobing of the back-light to simulate 120 refresh. Too many tvs are sold this way.
