    Nice entry-level 4k TV.

    My household is just breaking into the 4k world. We came across this TV on sale, and after many reviews of similar products we just couldn't pass it up. Here's my experience so far, pros and cons included throughout. Unboxing was super easy. Thanks to the incredibly lightweight design, there was no need to cut the box open as the unit easily slid right out the top. Next was assembly. The two included leg stands slid freely upwards into the base and secure with two screws each. Here found a slight issue, as the screws would not tighten correctly. They do still hold the legs in place, they are just not tight and it makes it feel like an unsteady and loose fit. Don't fret though, once the TV is on a flat surface it's stable enough to not worry about the screws coming out, and even if they did, the legs have long enough connectors that they work regardless. Setup was also quick, there are simple prompts to follow using the user-friendly remote. You'll be asked to connect to WiFi to enable the free smartcast service and access to other streaming apps. Optionally you could connect directly with an Ethernet cable instead. There are typical updates and then you're good to go. As you move through menus there are brief tips and tricks that pop up to help you customize your unit. They were all helpful, and appeared in a paced manner and only when applicable-you won't be endlessly bombarded by tutorials. We immediately connected a PS4 and tried to get into 4k viewing. It was not a clear process to any beginner, but a quick Google search and use of the TV's digital manual (conveniently located in the settings menu or through the smartcast app) we figured it out. An unfortunate realization was that the companion app is practically required for proper use of the TV. Some picture options, including enabling HDR on game consoles, is only accessible through the app on a phone, tablet, or other compatible wireless device. A minor inconvenience at most, but it was frustrating that the TV's settings we but completely available using just the TV itself. A bonus though is through the app you can easily control the TV entirely, and searching for things is much more fluid. Now the juicy bit. The picture. WOW. Just wow. Once 4k was in action on the ps4, I couldn't imagine how I thought it looked nice before. Admittedly it took some time to hone in the custom picture settings, but it was worth the time. Games felt immediately more immersive, and new visual subtleties appeared in even the most familiar game worlds. The preset picture settings are adequate if you don't want to mess around with it, plus each mode offers a toggle switch for gaming mode, which helps avoid any delay between inputting a game command and seeing it happen on screen. I highly recommend gaming mode be set on for even casual gamers, thought the delay was not too noticable with it off. Let's talk sound. The stock speakers are more than enough for an average living room setting. Standard customizations are available, and without blasting the speakers you can generate a full, powerful sound. If you're picky about your sound, chances are you have a sound bar or something already, which is easily compatible with this TV. Again, the companion app for the TV makes setup a breeze for any external sound system. Remote. Clean and efficient. There are bonus quick-load buttons for common apps like Netflix, and they are customizable. Sure, if you change for example the Vudu app button on the remote, it will still have Vudu printed on it, but any app can be assigned to it. I would have preferred simple colored buttons instead of branded ones, but at least they can be customized nonetheless. There are also power, input, and volume buttons directly on the TV as well along the right screen edge, tucked away behind it. I could go on for pages about the features and customization of this TV. You can even connect a Google account to use with the built in Chromecast service, or cast your portable devices' screen into your TV to use it like a giant monitor. Google play games on your Chromebook- welcome to the big screen. Overall I highly recommend this TV. It's user-friendly and more then worth the price, with outstanding picture quality and suitable audio. If you're debating on a similar size TV of a different brand, stop here. The search is over. -SirMerchant

    great pc monitor and very smart tv...

    Very smart TV.....even better as a pc monitor for me.. Just finished building my latest Semi gaming PC a few weeks ago, So I was looking to upgrade my monitor to a 4k display...my old monitor is a Samsung with a 1980 x 1200, it was impressive years ago before 4k resolution came about, but now, not so much...my first choice was the Sony 49 inch F series.. it is on sale for about 1K, and the second choice was the Samsung 49 inch QLED 6FN series which is on sale for 700 dollars.. but then I came across this E43-F1 Visio model and I studied the specs and I was impressed...but the 2 things that sold me were the "full array dimming and 120 Hz refresh rate, which you can only get on other big brands like LGs, Sony etc when you get to the 55 inches and up..and spend more than 3x, so I went to my nearest Best Buy store and pick one up and lucky me it was the last one in their inventory that day, set it up and the picture quality stands out... now I look at my raw photo files and I could not believe how sharp they look... so there it is I am really satisfied... Oh and added bonus the Visio free tv channels and movies are excellent ... I cut my cable months ago and now I am using an indoor antenna but with the built in free channels I can watch albeit delay games and sports talk...and some live games too, so even though this is a primary pc monitor I found myself switching to the streaming section a lot... so consider me impressed ...if there a knock for this tv, it would be legs,they are a little bit too low and somewhat flimsy and I would prefer the center support as opposed to the separate feet, I did change it with a pivoting universal tv stand, and it is now perfect, I have enclosed a photo, I would highly recommend it ..for the price I doubt that you can find one equal to the features of this model.

    Best 43" 4K HDR TV in its class!

    Posted

    The Vizio E43-F1 is hands down the best 4K HDR TV in its class. By class I mean entry level to mid range, price range, and display size. The display quality is excellent. It has great contrast ratio due to it utilizing a VA panel. The 10 zone local dimming helps with this as well. The combination of the two make for excellent black levels and higher quality darker scenes. Local dimming is unheard of in this price range! It also handles motion very well due to its higher refresh rate and has very low input lag, making it great for gaming! I made the mistake of purchasing the Samsung 43" UN7100 for $450 over the Vizio E43-F1 the first time around. I just wasn't very happy with the Samsung and knew I should have given the $330 Vizio a shot first. I took it back and exchanged it for the Vizio, granting me a $120 + dollar refund as well. The Vizio display looks better, has a higher contrast ratio, local dimming (Samsung UN7100 doesn't), better motion handling and lower input lag. The Samsung display housing was better and yes, it looked nicer. It also had a far superior user interface than the Vizio. But the display didn't look as nice and the housing wasn't $120+ better. I'm using it with a Nvidia Shield TV so the user interface doesn't matter to me. You can't get a better TV for this price. It beats the Samsung, Sony, and LG offerings that cost a hundred plus dollars more. See Rtings.com

    Great Entry Level 4K TV

    Choosing the right 4K TV is alot of pressure when you don't own any and unfamiliar with the different terms used in the descriptions. After doing a week of research, I'm very satisfied with my purchase. My first piece of advice is that whatever TV you decide to purchase, make sure that is has HDR. This TV delivers in that the fact that it contains 2 different modes of HDR. The default found on most TVs is HDR10. It produces great colors and can be utilized through devices such as the Xbox One S, FireTV, and any other device or app that supports UltraHD content. The best part is that this product also contains Dolby Vision which is next level HDR and an important feature to have so that your TV is future proof. Currently, Dolby Vision is only found through Netflix, VUDU, Amazon Prime, and certain purchases on the Apple 4K TV. Support is minimal now, but I guarantee you that purchasing a TV containing this version of HDR is important maintain satisfaction with this TV (or any tv for that matter) for years to come. This TV also contains local dimming zones which is also important for a 4K tv to have as well. Cheaper brands such as TCL, Hisense, Westinghouse, and others typically don't have this. The more zones a tv has then the better. There are only 10 local dimming zones on this TV, but at least Vizio provided some. Sound is great and the picture quality is amazing (especially in the Vivid preset).

    Excellent TV

    Picked up this from BB, initially I was going for the LG, & or Toshiba 43.. I spent a whole day reading reviews, settled on the former, then I stumbled on the Vizio review and realized there weren't too many negative reviews, so I bought it & I have to say, this is an excellent choice, I was looking for a simple 43 inch for the bedroom,,I'm a streamer, Firestick, with Hulu & Netflix accounts, & I've to say, the quality is excellent, the picture is great, I saw some negative reviews about that,I don't know what those customers were expecting but im completely satisfied. I will admit one thing, This is my first smart TV, the last time I bought a TV was 2006, but regardless, I know what looks good & what works, 3 Hdmi ports & simple setup is no brainer, plenty of fine tuning the picture quality by going into the "More Picture" option. The audio for me isn't a deal breaker, it sounds pretty decent compared to the older models I have, but of course there's a 12 year difference in tech,I already had a Vizio soundbar, but that wasn't my reason for purchasing, but the TV remote controls the soundbar, so that is a plus, this was $100 more than the Toshiba I was looking at, the LG was $269, this was $329, but I'm not complaining bcuz so far I think I made an excellent choice. I'm not going to nick pick about the quality of the remote or the plastic legs, I like the more important stuff like the 120 refresh rate, no pixelating, even the crap quality YouTube videos show pretty good, so I can imagine how a game console is going to look.so I'm completely satisfied, I think most will be too, not too complicated or subpar. Good luck

    Excellent 4K TV, Great Features, OK HDR/Picture

    I've been looking forward to a 4K TV for a while now that I've owned a PS4 Pro/X1X and 4K capable PC. But I managed to hold off the last few years because I was more interested in HDR. Well I finally decided to bite the bullet and get this TV has a graduation gift. The TV was easy to install unto my TV stand and it only took a few minutes to set it up. I wasn't too interested in the smart features because I mainly use my PS4 or PC to access Netflix and Hulu, but I'm surprised at how seamless and fast it works with Chromecast. Anyways, I got this TV mainly for gaming and as a normal 4K TV, it looks AMAZING, I can't go back to 1080p after playing God of War on it. The lag seems low with Game Mode on, but don't take my word for it since I'm not good at noticing those things. Honestly this TV is fantastic, BUT I felt like HDR (the main reason I got this TV) is a bit lackluster. Now I think that maybe a big word, because after days of dealing with the picture settings I think I finally nailed it and the HDR mode on some games do make the colors pop but in other games it can make the colors look washed out. Well I'm still a noob when it come HDR and I have heard that only high-end TVs are the only ones that do HDR justice. Right now, this TV offers a serviceable HDR that may do its job depending on the content its playing on. All in all, this TV has been great overall, I'm keeping it for the 4K and HDR is OK at best, I still think I just need better settings so hopefully more people this TV and figure it out for me :P

    Very good pcture, but some issues.

    rackbob

    Got my first E43-F1 as a replacement for my E43u-D2 that was un repairable. Hooked up DirecTV, Amazon FireTV and blu-ray home theater system to it. Same equipment that was on the E43u-d2, and worked perfectly. This time, things didn't go so well. Got video and audio on DirecTV, but no audio with the others. Swapped out HDMI ports with no luck. Once in awhile I got audio working on FireTV. But when I changed program, audio dropped. No luck with Blu-ray. Returned tv and ordered replacement. Got replacement and hooked it up. Same issue. But after some switching some audio settings back and forth, got audio working on FireTV. Strange part is that the current settings are the same as when I first set it up. Waiting to see if Blu-ray audio kicks in on it's own. Not a big issue since audio is supplied by separate speakers. They also dropped 1 HDMI port and installed OTA tuner. 4th HDMI input would be very nice to have. Ability to have USB port supply constant power is nice for supplying power to FireTV and saving an outlet. Overall, for the price, it's a rather decent tv. Built in Chromecast and 4k HDR on All HDMI inputs is also a step up from the 2017 model.

    Great Picture, not so Great Apps

    As a Sony fan I decided to give another brand a try for a TV I wanted to install in my exercise room. I purchased this particular Vizio model for two reasons 1) it has a built-in ATSC TV tuner - something Vizio seem to skimp on in other models and 2) a VA panel that produces a vibrant picture with very good contrast. In a side-by-side comparison in the brightly lit store with the equivalent LG 43UJ6300 (my runner up) which has an IPS LCD panel, the picture from this TV was just better - especially when viewed off center. I prefer LCD TV's with active full array back lighting which this unit has but the LG does not. Fast motion on the Vizio also appeared more natural than the competition. Sound is clear but not that great from the downward firing speakers. Then again most LCD TV's lack great sound however there is no lack of I/O options for video and audio on this TV. Finally the remote control needs work. Tiny flush buttons are difficult to push. Unfortunately it would seem you can't examine remote controls in Best Buy stores before making a purchase. Maybe they tend to get feet and walk away... Overall you will not be disappointed with this TV and, if paired with a faster streaming device such as a Roku Ultra unit, you can achieve the best of both worlds - a great picture in a faster, smarter streaming package.

    I had been watch various 43 inch tv's since july, reading what information i could find and many places say the Visio had the best picture (not necessarily the HDR) even over The samsung 6900 and 7100 series. With older Samsung tvs i had multiple problems using calibration programs. The Visio has more inputs then the Samsung 6900 and about the same as 7100. Visio has some smart apps (all i needed and has built in chromecast) but they aren't as many as samsung but adding a Amazon fire tv solves that. It supports Amazon Echo and Google home, which i had to find info to setup but once i did it works great. The remote feels a little cheaper than some i had but its functional and works, there are 6 quick start buttons for Vudu, NetFlix, Amazon, Xumo, Crackle and Iheart radio. I ran hardwired ethernet (it does support wireless) and it's connect to an OTA antenna. I also plugged in a Amazon FireTV 4k stick because in some spec online i found Visio was not in the supported list to receive Amazon Prime 4k with HDR, just 4k. Picture looks great in 4k, in lower resolutions it looks fine, i could not see any issues even though i found a few reviews that complained about it. The only issue i had was trying to use my Chrome Browser in windows 10 trying to cast to the Vizio, it sees it but when it connect i get a blank screen. I've also ran a hdmi cable from my windows 10 computer with no issues.

    Inferior faulty products and bad customer service

    Purchased this to use as a monitor and found a bright pixel, so utilized their ZERO BRIGHT PIXEL POLICY and returned it. They sent the Advanced Replacement a week later and it was worse than the original. 2 bright pixels and 1 dead pixel. Sent proof to their customer disservice and they refused to honor the warranty and said nothing they could do. They lied and said the pixels were dead when there was ample visual evidence that they were bright. The TV also randomly power cycles itself, turns off and back on, whenever it feels like it. Also will randomly display a green vertical line when starting up inputs. Also by using the warranty they effectively shorten the remaining warranty on the refurbished or replacement TV they send you to only 90 days. Great way to get over on the customer. Stay away from this company. They have recently had a failed merger with LeEco and a couple years ago were caught spying on consumers and selling the information to other companies for millions. They are going to go under soon. No reputable TV company offers 1 year warranties (especially on their higher end models) unless they know their products are faulty and won't last.

    I have had this tv for a little over a month now. Works pretty well for my needs. I mostly use it to play games on my PS4 Pro. The 4k is nice and smooth! I also watch anime from Crunchyroll on it. Just be sure to configure the TV to actually output 4k and low input latency for gaming when the PS4/Xbox is plugged in (within Menu on the tv). The only slight issues i have had are some slight brightness changes on parts of the tv when i was watching something on Netflix. I only noticed after my friend brought it up. I haven't noticed it except when using Netflix sometimes. Also, 2 or 3 times since owning thid tv, it has blacked out (acted like it was resetting the picture on the tv) as if I had just selected to go to my HDMI-3 (the hdmi my PS4 is plugged into). I am fairly sure this happened because the internet was being weird and thinking i wanted to change to watching something using Chromecast or something like that. Overall, I am satisfied with this tv, especially for the price! Just make sure your picture settings are good for what you are going to use the tv for. The default picture setting is rather dim and weird. :)

    Best Choice For A Dark Room

    Posted
    Abom
    • My Best Buy® Member

    I researched quite a bit before buying this TV. I prefer to keep electronics for a while rather than update every other year. The Vizio E43-F1 and TCL 43S515(517 variant) were the final choices. I opted for the Vizio E43-F1 because of Local Dimming. This TV is in a darker room and it does not disappoint. Compared to a 1080P edge lit LG I had, the E43-F1 is a significant improvement. Blacks are dark and look wonderful for such an inexpensive display. Despite review site (Rtings.com) recommended settings, I would follow the Calibrated (day use) and Calibrated Dark (night use) presets, only turning Sharpness to 0 and Film Mode Off. I have found Local Dimming to be splotchy at High. The Presets will keep it at Low or Medium depending on the content youre watching. I opted for this TV over the TCL 515/517 because of the better display features. The Wide Color Gamut in the TCL was tempting, but seemed fruitless for such a dim display and the built-in Roku did not appeal to me considering how inexpensive a streaming stick is. At the end of the day, a good looking picture was what I was after. Everything else I can improve with a plug in device.

    This tv is made in China. The Chinese routinely use cheap parts to build electronics with a failure rate of 1/100. I purchased this cheap tv for an exercise room. It worked great for two days then would no longer connect to my WiFi. After 45 minutes of their customer service tech yelling at me and rushing my every move they concluded what I already know. The tv is defective. The resolution? I let them put a credit card hold on me while they send out a new tv, that or have them send out a repair person to fix the one I have. Now I will have to remove it from the wall, switch the two out and package and send the defective tv back. No apology. Nothing but a hassle for me and a full week without the product I paid for.

    The image quality of this TV is great, the sound is good as well, but... after 1 month of use, Smartcast (the smart TV aspect with all the apps) stopped loading. We tried doing a Soft Power Cycle to no avail. We had to reset to factory setting, which meant losing all the personalized settings and login info we had already entered. It fixed the problem, but only for a couple of weeks. Now, the problem is back. I called Vizio customer service and with their help realized that the download speed on the TV is barely 1Gb/s, which is ridiculously low (my PS4 just below the TV gets 20Gb/s)!! I tried using an ethernet cable to fix it, but the download speed remains the same low number. So, it seems we got a TV with a defective internet "chip" (or it's just the norm right now), but it's too late to return it, if only by a few days. We'll have to get it fixed while it's still under warranty. It is unacceptable to have to reset a TV to have it work within 2 months of purchase!!

    Did a lot of research before this purchase of this outstanding 2018 E-series Vizio TV. This tv was rated the best for the $ and I can see why. Picture quality is outstanding. Vibrant colors and very deep blacks. Just be aware this is a VA panel so if you're viewing off center the picture quality degrades. (IPS Panels are better is this regard so I've read.) Not an issue w/me as I put little felt pads under the stand legs and rotate the tv for a better viewing angle. (I really wish this had a rotating center stand as my old LG 43" TV had.) Sound from internal spks is OK but nothing special. (I use my int. amp and Paradigm spks. for sound duties.) One really great feature of this TV is that it has Analog Out RCA jacks .3 HDMI inputs as well. Remote is easy to use and was very easy to set up the tv for first time use. Overall, this TV is excellent except for the viewing angle. Very highly recommended. Thank-you BB for having this in stock.

    Purchased this to replace an outdated Sony we were using in the home office and am very pleased with it so far. When I went into the Leesburg, VA Best Buy they associate listened to what I was looking for and pretty much said for my budget and what I was looking to do with the monitor, the E series Vizio was the best choice and I believe he was right. The color (after I found the right setting) and brightness are good (not as good as my 55" Sony in the living room but I wasn't expecting it to or needing it to be). I'm considering purchasing another to use as my desk monitor for my 4K laptop (I'm testing it through HDMI right now writing this review and it looks at least as good as the Dell 34" widescreen I will be returning, if not better). Can't go wrong with this one, especially for the price. Now if only I could find a 50" to put on the wall and use the 43" I have now as my monitor...

    This TV offers good image quality for the price. It's sharp, responsive, and delivers a consistent image. However, there are many compromises that are made to achieve the low price point. The lack of wide color gamut makes the TV's colors look flat and lifeless. Also the local dimming (FALD) is poorly implemented and when turned on causes significant blooming. On top of this the TV is very dim. The TV cannot get very dark and it also cannot get very bright, thus the contrast ratio is very lacking. All of this combines to make a very lackluster HDR experience. The build quality is another thing that leaves much to be desired, and despite being fully set up the TV is very prone to wobbling if moved a slight bit. I am not happy with my experience and I would recommend against buying this TV.

      Hello Jes1888, 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. Please contact our customer support at 877-878-4946 for assistance with your television.

    I needed a replacement TV for my bedroom. Because I didn't want to put it on the wall, my choices were limited by size. I really wanted a Samsung but the smaller Samsung's did not have the ability to use the 5g wifi. This one can use either. This is a big deal when considering others in the home will be streaming/gaming at the same time. Initially, I was disappointed in the TV. The picture wasn't as good as I had seen previously (my brother has the larger 65 or 70 inch in his living room). Once I upgraded my cable box to HD, however, the issue resolved. I'm very happy with the picture, the number of connections, etc. I've had this TV for a couple of months now and haven't had any issues with it. Setup was relatively easy (I had an old TV, so there was a learning curve). This is a good TV, especially at this price point. Would recommend and buy again.

    I purchased 2 of these tvs for my new home and both have had multiple issues after the return period ended. The first was purchased in July and the other in August. The issues with both started in September. The issues are: 1. Both units will turn on and there is a picture, but no sound at all. The only way to get the sound to come through is by unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then powering it back on. 2. Both units have a difficult time switching between inputs (HDMI to HDMI 2, etc.) 3. Both units have difficulty in displaying 4k from Apple TV - intermittent issue on both. 4. Both TVs take as long as 1 minute to turn on and display picture and both units will turn themselves back on after being powered off. They both would have been returned to the store if not for the return period ending. This was my first purchase of VIZIO and will likely be my last. I chose this over the Samsung based on price alone.

    Using this as a PC monitor, so far so good...

    Was looking at monitors for productivity and gaming and found this monitor based on online recommendations. Didn't need a crazy refresh rate so 60hz 4k was good enough for me. Can have multiple windows open even at 125% scaling and contrary to the reviews, this monitor is bright enough for me (most of the time I have it set to half brightness or less to save energy). Game mode is great and the local dimming and blacks are also superb. Hope it lasts as long as my QNIX2710 which I upgraded from. That lasted me for almost 5 years and is still working.

    I would recommend this to a friend
