    Good picture, Very unhappy with Best Buy and Vizio

    I just bought the 65 inch E-series Vizio 3 days before the Superbowl and ended up with such a nightmare, that I didn't even get to use the TV for watching the game. First off, be very skeptical of the information provided by the "Vizio Expert" on here. Before even buying the TV, I was concerned about the width of the legs as my TV stand I just bought is exactly 51 inches wide and I needed very precise information regarding that. The Vizio expert stated the widest footprint of the legs was 50.68 inches. This is wrong! The legs are 51.68 inches wide and Vizio needs to correct that. I have looked on other websites reviews where Vizio expert's list the leg width of this TV and they list it as 51.68 which is correct, I measured myself. Needless to say my new stand was a just under an inch to short and now I had to rush and spend my whole Saturday before superbowl sunday, finding a new stand because of Vizio's incorrect information on here...so frustrating! Then just before the superbowl came on I tried getting my phone to link up with the smartcast so that we could stream the game, since I did not have cable box for this TV until by cable service came out later in the week. After no success and using several smartphones, I called Vizio support. The rep determined that the bluetooth/ wifi electronics inside the TV was defective since after we tried for 45 mins to get any phone to connect. The rep then said I could send the TV back to Vizio or return it to the store. The rep went further, and said that since it is such an inconvenience to have to return such a large TV, that I could call the store (Best Buy) and tell the manager my case number that the rep gave me and they should pick it up for me. This did not make sense, since I did not have it delivered in the first place, but I thought maybe Vizio has something worked out with Best Buy in these instances as a courtesy for defective TVs. I later found out that this rep was likely just saying this to make me happy during the duration of the call and this was, as expected, NOT TRUE. The following Monday I contacted Best Buy after 4 phones calls and a total wait of 30 mins to get a human being on the phone. Eventually I got a manager named Jeff on the phone. Jeff had a courteous tone to his voice but did not care in any way about my hassle in general and missing the game. I understood when he said he could not pick up the TV unless I had originally had it delivered. Vizio reps should not be promising that! Jeff, however, never even once apologized, never said he was sorry for the hassle or was apologetic in any manner which you would expect, which was shocking since I later found out he was the store manager. And I'm a reasonable person and realize Best Buy did not directly have any control over what happened, but nonetheless a store manager needs to have much better tact and diplomacy when dealing with a frustrated customer. In the end I was told I could just return the TV, which I did. I try to support my local Best Buy instead of ordering everything from Amazon, but Best Buy just lost a customer for life simply by the cavalier attitude of the store manager who did not appreciate my business. And I'm honestly not sure if I will buy a Vizio again.

    I was really hesitant about this TV, until it was setup in my living room. It replaced a Sony XBR 65X750D, which was a super bright display with HDR, but did not support Dolby Vision. The picture quality was noticeable after starting up Netflix using the built in app. I should note, that the TV on the store display doesn't seem very bright at first glance. This is mostly due to the fact that it's mounted higher with bright store lighting than normal viewing in your home. Once it was home, on my entertainment stand, the picture was clear and as expected of a normal TV viewing experience. I really appreciated all the gamma options available; which easily outperformed the Sony TV is replaced. The fact that it only has 11 back light zones, is noticeable when viewing some bright/dark transitions, but isn't so bad that it affects the viewing experience. You'll likely notice it during loading screens with spinning icons against a black background. The more zones you have, the easier it is to darken the screen, so this was expected. The Vizio Smartcast App and built in smart tv interface are a bonus. You'll notice that the Smart TV interface is a bit slow when scrolling through the apps, but the apps themselves run fairly well. The Vizio Smartcast app is a must install on your iOS or Google Device. You can manipulate most, if not all, settings without ever interfering with the viewing of content, or browsing through menu's on the TV. This made calibrating the display a breeze, as you're able to see the settings take effect immediately. The speakers on the TV are a bit louder than my previous Sony, but I'd still recommend an AVR (audio video receiver) with speakers or a sound bar to get a better listening experience. Overall, I'm really impressed with this TV and for the price is an easy selection for a living or family room.

    Price and picture..what matters most

    For the price you will have a hard time finding a better TV with more features, and by a recognizable brand. I’ve had vizio tv’s that have outlasted many other more prominent names in the TV Mfr world. For the price I payed and my application, this tv works great. I am happy with the picture and the features. Vizio soundbar connected via fiber optic is also working great and through the same remote. This was a plus. Sleek design, a multitude of smart TV features like screen casting (smartcast) and it has all your favorite tv streaming apps on board. Great picture quality with the right HDMI cable and source and with the soundbar, the sound is now excellent. Ordered a backlight kit to set the mood and enhance the picture even more. Couldn’t be happier with this TV for the budget I had to buy one. Would def recommend vizio to a friend or family member. Coincidentally, a family member who came Over to watch football, and owns a S*****g curved, 4K TV, claims that my picture had crisper delineation between blacks and whites and the color in general, was superior to his TV. I suppose it’s all depending on what you’re watching and the person who’s judging it, but to hear this was additional affirmation that I made a good choice on this TV. I would buy another Vizio from Bestbuy. The whole ordering online, and picking it up once the “it’s ready” email came, process was seamless.

    Sleek look, good quality, some issues

    Very sleek design, not overly impressive but nice and lite weight. The clarity is not entirely what I was expecting, not blown away, but WAY better then your average $300-$500 TV. A definite upgrade for sure on a low-to-mid range budget. What's pretty cool is the Free Vizio TV channels thru wireless connection. Not exactly something to go crazy and buy a TV over, just a pretty cool plus. 4 HDMI Ports are another sweet plus, so you don't have to switch cables as frequent or at all. Can watch all you Prime or Netflix etc. videos without ever having to use a Play Station or computer at all. Installation went smooth, not much to it besides setting up the internet. Have to have basic knowledge of internet connecting. ISSUES: First 36 hrs had a very very tiny section of pixels go out, so I brought it back for a return. HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing at the very least the minimum protection like I did, it came in handy. Trust me on this. Only pain was repacking and bringing it to the store. The second TV is a few weeks in now and I'm getting some sort of screen "tear" but with those static lines that show up when your TV or cable is going bad. Right now, I'm assuming it's the HDMI cable. However, there is some cause for concern whether the quality of this model is built to last or built well at all... hmm. Only other problem, not a big fan of the volume capabilities. Have to crank it up quite of bit to hear it without absolute certainty, but that might be because I'm probably going deaf--who knows. Anyways, love playing Call of Duty and Madden on it. Nice size TV for the price and quality. Vizio generally does well. Hope this helps.

    After my initial purchase and first set up my TV had a line defect across the middle of the panel. I contacted Vizio CS and sent pictures via email. Within 24 hours they had arranged to have a new (not refurbished) TV delivered and set up. Fantastic customer service and a very friendly representative in the US. The picture is fantastic in bright rooms, the blacks are not as black as my other TVs but not terrible by any means. I mainly use this for PS4 pro gaming. The ps4 recognized 4k HDR immediately with no issues at all. The apps work great and the smart cast feature is very useful, for example: there isn't a HBO go app on the TV but I am able to stream from my phone in seconds and control the content with the TV remote while I'm using my phone for other things. This has to be the best 4k TV in its price range that is available now. The only minor complaint is the TV will randomly not recognize my vizio sound bar that I have connected by optical cable and I will have to change the audio setting from auto to PCM. I would highly recommend this TV to anyone who is cross shopping TV's in this price range.

    Nice TV for a great price

    We've had this since the end of January 2019 (4 months). So far we love it! Always a great picture no matter what we are watching. Even the battle of winterfell looked awesome on this screen... I've been very impressed with the scaling engine in the TV, it can take a 720P source and make it look fantastic! Our room is rather dark when we normally watch TV, but I've not been disappointed when watching something and having the room bright during the day. I'd be a bit leery of this TV if the room was going to be very bright consistently while watching, I don't think the screen would be able to get bright enough. That would be my only concern with this TV so far. There was recently a firmware update that allowed the TV to display material encoded in dolbyvision from and XBOX OneX. I'm glad Vizion took the time to include the 2018 models in the update. I've only watched 2 things encoded in dolbyvision, but I liked it. Seemed to have a bit more polish and pop to the material than that encoded in HDR10. Overall, this has been a fantastic TV so far. Very happy with our purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a 65" screen on a budget. We don't use the smart features or the TV speakers, so won't comment on those aspects.

    So I was looking to get a new tv. I previously had a Samsung TV which was High Definition 1080p TV from 2007 which was still decent and looked good, however the screen started to lose color at the top right hand corner so I started to look into getting a new tv. My criteria was at least 65 inch TV with at least 4 hdmi ports and under $700. This was the top rated tv in that range at the time. I have had this tv for several months and I have tried to like this tv, but it just stinks. The picture quality doesn't compare to competitors which my family and friends have. I have tried adjusting the settings and I have tried to follow helpful tips and I have even had a close family member who works with tv's and monitors take a look and the performance never shows up on this tv. Whether viewing bluray or xbox, playstation, or dvd or cable. It looks crappy and not sharp. The picture on my Samsung was much sharper and now I regret not spending the extra money on a new tv. the controller stinks, it is small and looks cheap, be prepared to aim it just right at the tv. I would rate this TV 0 stars if I could, but no option to. At this point I feel stuck with this tv. Best Buy sells some good quality items, I hope they don't get caught up with too many duds like this tv.

      Hello NicknameHappens, 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. VIZIO

    Great TV value

    We waited 9 years to upgrade our old Samsung 55 inch tv and after many reviews we decided on the Vizio E model. For the price of admission this tv is simply amazing. The colors, blacks and clarity are good, very good and that is what is mostly important for any TV. The upscaling isn’t bad but this is where Vizio needs to apply more effort along with the smart functions. Now my biggest issue is the motion with this model. It handles most everything very well but struggled when the camera was panning. There is an easy fix (sorry but the explanation will be vague) just turn on the setting that increases the motion and the tv does really well during panning scenes however the unfortunate drawback is you lose some lighting which in hand effects details in HDR content. Just to show you the great value of this tv we returned the E series tv for a Samsung Q6 (didn’t care for it) and finally wound up with the LG C8 tv, almost 4 times the cost of the E series Vizio. Four times the cost to get the extra few things the Vizio didn’t check off on our wants list. If you want value the E series is a winner. If you want to spend a little more try the M series Vizio.

    Good TV if it works right

    This would be an excellent tv if it worked right but it doesn’t. The 4K and hdr picture look great with my Xbox one but it’s pointless when the tv won’t turn on and won’t load SmartCast. I bought this TV brand new last Christmas and have had issues with it throughout the year hoping that Vizio would fix it because I’m a fan of Vizio. However it still hasn’t been fixed or replaced. The TV will sometimes not start up or load meaning I’ll have to turn on and off the tv a few times hoping that eventually it will, if that doesn’t work sometimes I’ll have to do a hard reset on the tv to get it start up and turn on. I believe it is a smart cast software issue and when reaching out to Vizio they told me they are working on the issue but they don’t have a timeframe for resolution. I’m sorry but that just isn’t acceptable. If the tv worked like it should I’d give it 5 stars as it’s a great moderately priced 65” tv with good features for the price but my advice is be cautious as some of these units may not work properly after your return time period is up and you’re stuck playing the guessing game of if you’re tv will start up or not.

    Big screen, bright screen, really really nice .This tv is awsome. The feature I use on it mostly is to cast content from my smartphone to the tv. Apps such as; Directvnow, Starz, OWN, and many other apps can be cast to the tv. Some apps aren't available to download to the Vizio, so you will have to look for apps that can cast to the tv, such as the ones I described previously. Keep in mind that you will most likely cast in 720p, there's a slim chance of 1080p depending on the program and app you use, but the picture still looks great. The sound is good and doesn't really have to be turned up loud to really hear it, and it has an option to play in surroundsound. You can also cast your smatphone screen to the tv as well. There are many settings to configure how you want the screen to look like, like auto dimming and settings to make the black colors look really black. I have had no problems with the television since I've had it. You won't regret buying this tv.

    We purchased this to replace our 8 year old 55" plasma Samsung TV. I'm no "videophile" but we found the picture, even after research and significant tinkering with settings, to be simply "fair." When watching "dark" scenes the places on the screen where light was supposed to be low or none looked more gray than black. The "smart TV" function is okay - I like our roku and apple TV applications much better. It was very easy to set up and there were some programs that looked better than the darker movies/shows we watched. I was just surprised that a such highly rated product ended up being more of an average thing. I guess you still need to spend $1,000 or more for the best quality TV's. We're returning the TV after 3 weeks of giving it a shot and putting the Samsung plasma back in it's place until I can feel comfortable spending more money on a better product. Oh, and if you think 65" is a big difference over 55", not so much - the measurements being on the diagonal made it seem insignificant.

    I choose this Vizio TV over the similar size, function and priced Samsung because it has Google Chromecast built in, but the drawback is that it does not include Sling as one of the applications for the "Smart" TV functionality. This is also the entry level TV for this size which uses 12 back light panels compared to more (not sure how many) for the next level TV. The problem is that you can easily see these 12 light sections if the background is dark but words or some other small areas of movement (like the little processing circle that is popular when the internet is buffering) is on screen the back lighting follows the movement which looks weird. I would also say that the black is not quite as good in regular mode as compared to the demo mode so a little washed out in regular viewing situations and program. Otherwise the image looks good.

    After a lot of research I decided to finally upgrade the TV set in my Game Room to a larger 65" model. This TV barely fit inside my Jeep Cherokee but once we got it home the picture really blew us away. A couple of quick notes because there are much more detailed reviews out there: Pros: Great Picture (and it has Dolby Vision) Hitting the info button actually tells you if HDR is being shown (unlike Samsung) Lots of inputs on the back Xbox 1X games play great without having to fiddle with different modes Cons: The stands are at the very edge with no other positions, so make sure your TV stand is very long The USB port does not turn off when the TV turns off, so if you use LED bias lighting this is kind of a pain The design off the back of the TV is a bit ugly when compared to Samsung, but it's covered for my purposes so not a huge deal

    We purchased this TV a month ago and we are very happy with it. We were surprised to find out that Pluto TV is included for free. We haven't had cable in over 5 years and have been relying on our Amazon Prime subscription for video, but with over 150 channels included for free, we are going to ditch Amazon and use this app. The downside is that this TV is absolutely 100% NOT compatible with older gaming systems that are 240i (NES, N64, etc). I was looking forward to playing Mario Kart 64 on the 65 inch screen, but there is no way to get it to run. I've tried adapters and cables, I've contacted Best Buy and the Geek Squad for help, and I went to online forums. There is no way to make it happen. Pros of the TV: -Great picture quality -Surprise Pluto TV app with 150+ channels for free -Easily accessible HDMI ports Cons: -A little slow to connect to WiFi when first turning the TV on -Older gaming consoles are absolutely not supported

    I have had this TV for about a month now and I really enjoy watching television on it. I love the fact that it has built in apps such as YouTube, Netflix, etc. It’s awesome how the apps support Ultra 4K streaming! The big bonus with VIZIO is that you get a feature named WatchFree which has some tv channels for free! Some cons of this TV is that it unfortunately does not come with Bluetooth to pair with Bluetooth speakers and the software on this TV can be a bit buggy and sometimes annoying. Some pros of this TV are google assistant, great price, VIZIO SmartCast app, Dolby Vision, HDR, Dolby sound, and soon VIZIO will soon be releasing a software update for Apple AirPlay. I would give this TV 5 stars but like I said the current software on it is a bit buggy so that’s why it gets a 4 star review.

    We purchased our last 46 inch Sony Smart tv from Best Buy 11 years ago and it was a good tv which still works great, we just wanted to get a bigger tv and 4K picture quality. So we decided to purchase another tv, but this time going with a Vizio. We are NOT disappointed! We have a smaller Vizio and love it and other family members have had good experiences with Vizio as well. This purchase has been no exception...great picture quality, easy set up and overall, we are very satisfied with everything about this 65 inch. The only upgrade we would like to add in the future is a nice 5.1 soundbar which I know Vizio and Sony both have some great options in that category! The soundbar will definitely be a wonderful enhancement to the quality of sound, (although the tv sound is good) especially for movies, soundtracks, etc. I would highly recommend the Vizio or Sony brands! We are very satisfied consumers and would highly recommend either brand!

    I love this tv this is my 4th vizio and I just love it. Great pic and sound easy to hook my electronic to and everything works great. I am a vizio fan I have 2 65in , and had one 49 in , and a 24 in, all of them still work and have great pics on them I like to keep up to date on all my electronic so I upgrade about every 3 years. If you like a vivid clear pic this is the tv for you. I have had no problems at all with this tv. I did have to go in and change the setting to the 2160 to get the 4k pic from all my electronics hooked to it but it is the best pic I have ever seen. If you want a great tv at a great price that is easy to use then I recommend this vizio. I also have had other brands that just didn't last or work as well as the vizio's my small one is over 8yrs old and still going strong.

    This is the second Vizio that we have bought. We still have the first one from many years ago and its going strong and doing great just moved it to the bedroom. Wanted a new bigger TV for the living room. Almost went with the 70 inch but didn't want to pay the extra. This is more than big enough for our needs. The picture quality is good, its not like the top shelf 4K stuff, but more than enough for our needs. For the price I would have given it 5 stars, but my only complaint is with the speakers. We have a good sized living room and the speakers in this TV just don't get it done. They get loud, but the sound quality just isn't there. I know that this is the way it seems for most TVs anymore. I am about to hook a sound bar up to it so I can get better sound quality.

    This Vizio tv has a really crips and neat image, colors are amazing, real bright. I like the fact you can control some of the tv features with your voice using Google assistant. The google chrome cast integration is a plus to cast your anable chrome apps. Also it is a neat feature the added free channels to view if you dont have a cable or satellite subscription, they dont have the best programs but it’s a plus. Smartcast is really useful, you get all your apps in one screen and get to select from your favorites to view. This is my fourth Vizio tv set that i have, I bought my first Vizio TV 11 years ago and is still up and running like the first day i bought it. I have no regrest, no complaints about this product ever since they came out. I’m a happy Vizio customer.

    For the amount of money I paid for this TV I feel like I definitely got what I paid for. HDR is amazing and this TV doesn't disappoint in that regard. I have and Nvidia Shield for 4K content so I haven't tried any of the built-in apps. I did try using ARC and had audio cutout issues with my older receiver using Amazon Prime due to the DD+ that they use not going over ARC well, but that is fixed by having a receiver that supports HDR and pushing it through the receiver. I will say that the glare is pretty noticeable from windows facing the TV and I would like the brightness to be higher. Those are my only real complaints though.
