4 out of 5 eggsGreat Price. Great Refurbish. Some Hassle.

Pros: - GREAT shape for refurbished item. The two I received had minimal or unnoticeable damage. (scratch on screen with one, speck on the other). Other than that, it was like brand-new.

- GREAT quality.

- TV looks amazing! A huge upgrade from my older 50" LCD. Great picture, great colors.

- Standard colors are a bit bland, but the TV is vivid. Movie setting is the best. I suggest using optimal settings (google it) for the best picture. With those tweaks, I am satisfied.

- SUPER CHEAP ($459). It was a choice between this refurbished, or an off-brand TV. I went with the name brand and hyped I did.

- WIFI capable, and the APPS are nice. They are also customizable (for the quick access button) so you can delete/arrange the way you like.

- Different Profiles for different people. You can set it up under user profiles that saves all your settings. Password Protected. (Apps, TV Settings, etc..)

Cons: - With the 1st one I ordered, the picture went out in less the 10 minutes! Sent it back via RMA. The replacement was also delayed (sadface) during halloween weekend, but I finally received it after 2 weeks in all.

- Small speck on (bottom right) of screen, almost a scratch on the inside of the TV, very small, noticeable only during widescreen movies/tv mostly when the screen is black in that part. Near perfect condition otherwise.

- Bottom mount was a pain to screw on.

- Onboard speakers on this thing are decent, but more leaning to the small box room bad side. GET A SOUNDBAR.

- 1st one came with guide, battery's, remote, screws, stand. 2nd one came with only remote, stand, and screws. (sadface)

Other Thoughts: For the price this was a steal, but it was also a hassle. Newegg was awesome with customer service. Some noticeable damage (if your picky), but I will hold onto this one to avoid hassle again. I will continue to use this to decide if I truly love it over the next 2-3 weeks. May return to purchase a different TV during Black Friday.

3 out of 5 eggsProblem on problem

Pros: I spend around two grand on this computer, picking all the top components offer (excluding the sound card)
-When the computer run, it runs beyond anything I expected.
-They setup the operating system on my solid state instead of the HDD saving me quite a bit of time.
-Download/installation on gaming is amazing

Cons: The good does not seem to out weigh the bad for the price. I have only had this computer for about two months and this is what I have discovered so far.
-Wires loosely hanging in case.
-Operating system constantly crashes no matter how many times I restore/fix it.
-Both sound plugins don't work.
-Extremely bright power light that can not be turned off(Thermaltake Case)
-monitors flash on and off, replaced the DVI cables and tried the monitors on another computer and they work fine. The Female connects on the computer seem to have something wrong(yet to look)

Other Thoughts: I will make another update about my experiences in a few months.

5 out of 5 eggsSecond time around - very happy

Pros: My first set arrived with a destroyed screen. Newegg (FedEx) delivered the second unit 7 days after the first. I like the TV: if it continues to work well past the warranty, I will remain happy. I think that Newegg has done a great job with customer service in this situation.

Cons: I was excited to get the first one and disappointed that it was destroyed; then hesitant with the second one. It took too long to finally see it and get things resolved, but the Newegg crew did well.

1 out of 5 eggsThe right tv

Pros: It is the TV i ordered.

Cons: The screen is fractured across the top half of the screen thus making the TV unusable

Other Thoughts: I just put in an RMA request, depending on what happens with that, I will change my review.

5 out of 5 eggsUnder estimated vizio

Pros: -Beautiful 1080p 120mhz picture
-Decent sound
-built in wireless card is quite fast, little to no buffering on netflix and Hulu
-Decent processor in the tv making the menu and apps not lag

Cons: Honestly none

Other Thoughts: was never a vizio fan, Last one I had was a headache. Menus were slow, netflix would buffer even though I have 100mb/s internet. But for 500$ this TV was a bargain. I recommended to 3 friends who all bought it and they love it.

3 out of 5 eggsVizio 50" 120hz Smart LED

Pros: Price Point, Color and Number of Inputs, wireless adapter.

Cons: Scratched base plate through out, more than superficial, inputs were worn, did not firm grasp the HDMI contacts. Remote was completely broken, rendering the TV almost useless for my intent.

Other Thoughts: I bought the two replacement program via Newegg but does initiate till the vendors warranty expires. So now I am dealing with Brown Box and have no Idea how they will respond to a simple replacement.

4 out of 5 eggsSWEET!

Pros: Amazing picture, close to levels of the higher priced sets. The look is very modern with the thin bezel. Many features for a smart TV at this price range. BIG screen...:)

Cons: Sounds is ok, but as most HDTV's if sound is important to you then add a sound system. The response time in menu and smart features are a tad slow.

Other Thoughts: For the price you will not find a better HDTV. I love Vizio TV's. They have been able to keep the 'bang for buck' factor in a very good balance. Thus far I am very pleased with this purchase!
