    Bottom Line: Best 70" 4K Display at This Price

    Posted
    PaigeDad

    Picked this up for my Living room... Vizio has built a pretty solid rep over the last 10yrs or so. I read some reviews online and took a shot with this set. I remember reading about this display online and I was very concerned about the comments regarding the limitations of the remote. I struggled for days with that. However I pulled the trigger anyway. NOTE: Typically I would install a front Projector for my Home Theater needs but things are a bit different now that I have a wife. She wasn't having it so we settled on a 70" display. So far I must say I am alot more than impressed with this display. And the Smartcast software from your phone works brilliantly with this display. If you are on the ropes because of the "remote issue", take my word for it and trust me, it's not an issue once you sync this display to your smartphone or tablet. It's smooth and intuitive. Now... The dreaded lack of built in apps... That really had me on the ropes. reading about how this TV has no real menu and you have to basically use individual apps from a phone/tablet to cast content to this display seemed problematic and clunky to me. However, I can say now since I have been using this display for a little over a month now, trust me it works very well. Just install your Wifi router as close to this TV as possible and you should be just fine. For those who feel this is not a SmartTV, you are correct. This is not a TV at all. It has NO tuner. But who needs a tuner built into their TV in 2017?? I mean, really. ... The display works just as advertised. And to clarify, when you are using the display to cast from Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo, etc... You are not downloading to your phone so that you can upload to the display... That would be a tremendous strain on your home bandwidth and would make a device like this not very appealing. The way this display and others like it works is by using your phone/tablet as a remote control for the existing software and apps built into the display. So when you cast to the display you are essentially just pointing the display to a URL. Anyone with Chromecast knows how this works. (Apps like AllCast for local content are different of course) My only real issue with this display is that it does bleed light from the bottom left. So when u wall-mount this baby, once the lights go out u will notice light shining onto the wall behind the display. For those who are Home Theater hobbyists and videophiles of some sort, that could be a deal killer. That is my only gripe with this set. Oh and of course the lack of HDR. But I knew what I was paying for. 4K content looks amazing on this display. 1080p upscaled to 4K is amazing as well. No issues there. I have an HTPC with 1920 x 1080 output via HDMI connected to how display and the upscale engine of this display does a wonderful job. Again... FOR THIS PRICE, you cannot get a better 70" display... Legally.

    Great TV for the money

    This is our 4th HD Vizio and we love them all. I actually returned a 65 inch 4K Vizio that I bought the prior day because the picture was too dark and instead bought this one. The picture is in line with what we have come to expect from our other sets which leads me to believe there was an issue with the other one. This is a hard set to complain about for the price you pay. There are definitely better pictures but from what I can tell they all cost $500 or more to get similar or better quality. We actually prefer this picture to other that were considerably more expensive. Matter of preference like most things but we love the Vizio look. The only cons are the speakers and the very basic remote that you get with this set. The speakers aren't an issue as we have it running through an entertainment system. They would be awful otherwise. A sound bar would also do the trick. The remote is also not an issue just a bit of an annoyance. You actually have as much, or more control, once you download the ap. Once set there is very seldom a need to adjust anything and the convenience of being able to stream from your phone or tablet is worth the very basic included remote. **please note that there is no internal tuner so you will have to have an external source for a broadcast.. This will not be an issue if you already have cable, dish or satellite. We are very happy with the Vizio line. Typically I live by the idea that you get what you pay for but I think this is definitely the exception and one of the better values in large HD sets. It's especially the case in regards to a 70 inch set.

    Old TV was a 5-6 year old 1080 plasma 55". Moved into a new house with a large great room with 18 foot ceilings, a large built in entertainment center, and a view from the kitchen while cooking but a ways away. I wanted something that would be an optical upgrade but screen size was also important. Our internet is lacking in the country so we cant stream 4k, so our only real 4k content will be from the 4k dvd player. I debated on this TV and a higher quality M series in a 65 inch. Comparing the two in the store I didn't see a ton of difference and I don't really need another tablet. At some point I actually found myself deciding if I was going to spend more it would be for the Samsung 8000 series that was on sale, but it would have been about 500 bucks more for a 5" smaller screen. Decided to go with the Vizio E 70" and completely happy with it. Is it as good as a Samsung 8000? No...but im also not comparing it side by side to other TVs in my house so looks good to me :) At 929 bucks, I still spent 200 on the 4k DVD player and then another 250 on a sound bar as my old one no longer fit underneath this monster...so when you figure I could get all that for the price of the other one it works for me. Its not a bad TV by any means, and even though I don't have HDR or the highest processor, im not really missing what I don't have...what I am doing is enjoying the significant upgrade in both quality and size over my last TV at a price that didn't make me feel guilty for a TV.

    Disposable TVs

    Google "disposable tv" -- you will see Vizio highlighted. We bought a top of the line Vizio TV and 13 months after purchase I called Vizio when I noticed that the right side of the screen was dark. In truth, it had been failing much earlier, but we thought it was just the video we were watching. It was only when it got progressively worse that we realized something was wrong. OK -- no big deal. Stuff can break. What I wasn't prepared for was the rude, condescending attitude from the Vizio technical support. Not just one person. I called a couple of time and spoke with 3-4 different representatives and managers and the response was the same: Our warranty is for 12 months. Your tv failed at 13 months. So, tough luck. They would be willing to offer a discount on a new tv -- but admitted that I'd probably find a better deal on line. So there you go -- almost $1,000 spent on a tv that fails just outside of the warranty period and there's no grace or even treating the customer with respect. Yes, the image was great when it worked. But, these TVs fail and when they do you're out of luck. Yes, you could purchase a repair plan -- but that just escalates the cost to cover for a bad product and poor service. And, eventually, your repair plan will run out and then you're stuck. My goal is to save other consumers my frustration. Stay away.

    Great Deal for 4K

    This is a fantastic display. For the money, you will not find a better option. It is a welcome concept as it cuts cost by removing functions that are rarely needed. Unfortunately, if you purchase this display without thinking it through it may leave you frustrated. If you simply want a great 4K display at an affordable price, then this is a great buy. If you want a smart TV then you will be disappointed but can still make it work for you with less expense than a more expensive set. For my purposes, I simply wanted a 4K display for my Xbox one X. I watch cable television through this and use the Xbox apps exclusively for Netflix etc. It works very well for this purpose and I was very pleased with the performance on video games. Many have complained about the included remote which I agree is next to useless, but I use my Xbox remote to control the TV. The phone app actually works seamlessly to program the picture so I don’t even need the remote. If someone wants this Display for a “smart tv”, there is a screencast function which allows you to use a mobile phone to control the TV. However, if I didn’t have the Xbox One X, I would invest in the new Roku 4K. It has a remote that can control a TV, has voice functionality and will make the display a robust “smart tv” for much less than purchasing a more expensive tv. With Apple, Google, Amazon and Roku all makbig 4K options, it is easy to transform this display into a smart TV. If you always have your cellphone with you then then screencast function will give you all the smart tv you need. In summary, most of the negative reviews complain about the remote, lack of apps without a phone and lack of a TV tuner. However, most people rarely touch a remote since they have a cable/satellite/fios remote, there are inexpensive ways to get smart fubctionality, and if you need a TV tuner, you probably don’t need a 4K display. I thank Vizio for having the foresight to get rid of these options to deliver a 4K display with HDR functionality at the price of 1080p.

    Good tv at the right price.Only 1input full 4k&hdr

    Want a big tv? can you get this one at a great price? Not someone who will go insane over every little detail with the picture? Well then this tv is for you! I purchased this TV on a one day sale pre black Friday for under $850, I could not pass up a deal like that and since have no seen it for that low. I could bore you with multiple things but I'll just jump to the most important. THIS TV ONLY HAS ONE HDMI 2.0 input, whats that mean? If you are hoping to have multiple devices play 4k and hdr you are out of luck. I have an apple tv 4k and an XBOX One S, only one is able to get 4k and hdr, the reason only input 1 can handle the full bandwidth required. This is not a problem if you are just looking for base 4k and no HDR (cable tv, most tv streaming, game systems that are not PS4 pro, Xbox One S/X. But with the big thing being game systems and movies with HDR this could be a huge downside. (This information and reason for why I could only have one input with hdr came straight from someone at Vizio). Also I will say the picture on this...its alright. There is not necessarily anything to complain about, but when compared to newer tv's my family has it just does not look as good. If I could do it all over again I would probably spend a bit more money and get a different tv, but at $850 I feel I get my moneys worth. I would however not recommend this tv if you are paying $1000+, I'd say downgrade to a 65in and buy a higher quality tv. If you are just looking for the biggest tv you can get a good price, and are not concerned about "amazing picture" and multiple devices with hdr, this tv is not a bad choice, like the three stars says...its average.

      Thanks for taking the time to review our product. We appreciate the feedback. In addition to supporting HDR over HDMI1, this model also supports HDR10 & DolbyVision streaming over the built in applications like Netflix & Vudu. The display also supports casting content in HDR from any Chromecast enabled application. In regards to the picture quality, we include a host of settings that can be adjusted to fine tune your image quality. Since picture settings can very depending on the environment the TV is used in, the source you are viewing content on, and personal preference, you may want to spend some time tuning your image.

      To start, you can access the picture settings by going into the 'Picture' option of the menu, and choosing a 'Picture Mode'. For brighter rooms you might want to use the 'Calibrated' or 'Vivid' settings, & for darker rooms you can try 'Calibrated Dark'. From there, feel free to tune the 'Backlight', 'Brightness', and 'Color' to match the levels of light in your room. Generally you'll want those settings higher in lighter rooms, and lower in darker rooms. If you have any questions about the settings, or would like a longer explanation on how each setting effects the picture, we'd be happy to help. We've got phone agents available at 855-833-3221. If you'd prefer, we also have chat representatives available by pressing the 'Contact Us' option on support.VIZIO.com. VIZIO

    misleading HDR specs

    Posted
    vince

    This TV was released as a non-hdr tv from VIZIO. Before I bought it, I read that it received an update enabling HDR playback via the HDR10 format. I was in the market to upgrade my non HDR 4k tv to one with HDR and came upon this tv on sale, and found out about the update. So I bought it. I think the smartcast feature is great, I don't watch over the air broadcasts, so I don't mind that it lacks a coax input and remote. It really doesn't pass HDR muster though. First of all, the tv only reproduces HDR via the HDR10 encoding, not through Dolby Vision. That isn't a huge deal, except the Smartcast app built into the tv only displays HDR via Dolby Vision. as a result, you are completely unable to stream HDR via the smartcast app, regardless of formatting. You can only stream via a 3rd party source. Enter the Roku. I already have a Roku 4. It, of course, doesn't do HDR. So I spent $100 on a Roku Ultra. Now that I have my new Roku installed... I get HDR on Amazon and nothing else. Not 100% sure what the reason is, but I think its because all the streaming providers other than Amazon use Dolby Vision, which is incompatible with this tv. Now the Amazon app turns my HDR setting on, but I didn't say I can see a difference. I can not. None whatsoever. I assume all Vizio did was to write software to accept the HDR signal and produce the correct indicator light to come on, but not actually process HDR video therefore providing zero whatever, of the video enhancements that would come along with HDR. I suspect this TV is no more HDR than my last tv, it just manipulates the settings to give the impression that it is. Too bad.

    Me and my wife were excited once we received our first Vizio TV. Once everything was setup (which didn't take long at all) I was fine with the quality of the picture. There's no HDR but, It still showed a great picture especially with the right supporting 3rd party consoles. It being priced at 999 wasn't bad either making it worth being satisfied at the time. Not even a week goes by and the picture goes in and out. Thinking it was only a minor wiring problem, I ignored it once the picture worked again without any problems. A couple days goes by and again the picture goes out but this time it never came back on. After doing reaearch and seeing this is a common issue, my confidence with Vizio is out the window and I immediately called best buy and thankfully was able to return it with no problem. I really wanted to enjoy this TV but after the circumstance that early I couldn't. Luckily I found a Samsung 70" (even with HDR) on sale and bought it immediately and so far im very happy with it.
