Pros: Good picture, multiple inputs, Internet apps, relatively speedy, thin bezel, great value

Cons: Quality control, mediocre color out of box

Purchased as upgrade from (good) Vizio E-series 42 inch HDTV.

Original stand had cosmetic defect. Replacement was even worse. Waiting for 2nd replacement.
Vizio customer service was relatively good about the issue.

Inputs tested: Comcast cable, over the air digital TV, HDMI from Blu-ray player and computer.

Wi-Fi Internet (over ADSL2+ service at 16.4 Mbps) works quite well even for HD streaming.

Operation is relatively speedy, significantly faster on Internet apps than E-series it replaced.
Good information display on screen.

Thin bezel is a big plus, making picture seem bigger, to float in the air.
Color and brightness were mediocre out of the box, but adjustments resulted in good quality picture.
Black levels are very good. Screen brightness is fairly even, as good or better than most.

Tuner does a very good job of receiving digital HDTV over the air.

Relatively easy to add to Logitech Harmony Remote with a bit of tweaking.

As good or better than other sets costing much more, excellent value for the money. Recommended.
