Just have the old Monster ISF dvd settings for now and is very nice but I think it could get better.
I bought this TV from Walmart for $1179 ... my review is mixed... I like the size of the TV, and am satisfied with the built in sound... however the picture quality requires a lot of adjustment to get right, but looks promising (Still working on it though). The smart TV functions are infuriatingly dumb... most of all is lack of DLNA supported formats it. The TV crashes every every time i try to access my server.
(number) = little to no change range
Backlight: 21 (20 to 40)
Contrast: 47 (46 to 48)
Brightness: 50 (49 to 51)
Sharpness: 8 (6 to 10)
Color: 51 (50 to 52
Tint: +1 (0 to +2,using blue filter)
Color Temperature – Custom (All @ 50)
Advanced Settings (All Off, chasing your tail otherwise)
Noise Reduction – Off
MPEG NR – Off
Color Enhancement – Off
Adaptive Luma – Off
Film Mode – Off
Ambient Light Sensor – Off
Backlight = OPC DRC
As you can see most adjustments need to be within just a few to be correct. And sets can vary enough that your optimal setting could be a few off of the above.
The moral of this story is if you want the most out off your HDTV you need to spend the $17 or so for a calibration disc to get the most out of the set.
Out of the box factory settings the Picture Quailty is a 6 out of 10, with a (Disney WOW) calibration disc it is a 9 out of 10.
The OPC setting had a slight change in brightness level from some scenes to other scenes that was undesirable.
Given the low price of this TV, I wouldn't be surprised to see more people pick this model up.
I'm trying to turn off the TV's speakers when watching OTA signals as I send the audio to my receiver via the optical cable. however the TV never remembers the 'speakers off' setting. Every time I turn the TV back on, that setting resets to 'on.' As far as I can tell so far, it's the only setting that doesn't save. Any tips or tricks or thoughts on how to prevent this from happening?
EDIT: And I just got an answer from Vizio support. I had to turn the CEC setting to 'off'. Doing that allowed the TV to keep the internal speakers off. Just FYI for anyone else who runs into this problem!
I've read all the reviews on Amazon - there's a couple people saying the backlighting is very consistant; there's two or three that say it's not. Maybe it's a quality control issue.
I haven't had time to play with the setiings other than to do what others have posted here and elsewhere; turn the advanced settings off, mode to vivid, etc.
I'll play with it a bit more this week. If I can't get this adjusted out, I'll take it back and try another one.
Saw this at my local Costco this past weekend. The price makes it very tempting (will replace my 10 yr old projection TV).
Has the firmware issues been fixed in this model? I prefer buying from Costco mainly to get the 'free' 2 yr warranty included with the set.
Due to lack of activity on this thread, I'm taking that as a good sign as owners are enjoying the set .
"There are 1 0 kinds of people in this world...one that can read binary while the other that can't!!"
My small HT setup:
Definitely a good set once it's calibrated properly (which is a little tricky). The splotchy backlighting is evident when the set is first turned on and there's no video playing, but if you play a video that has a dark background (such a end credits or a dark night time scene) then it goes away (at least on my set).
Same here, the backlighting concern all but goes away once content is displayed. I have had it over 5 months now and the set is a very good value for the price. Many, myself included did not have the need for 3D, so this set fits very well.
To be honest though, Vizio has some 2014 sets with "FALD" that are very nice.........
I moved into a much bigger house and 46" is just not cutting it for me. 65" is the max that will fit in the cubby though. I was going to hold out for the OLED 65" 4K TV, but this one is so cheap it will get me by...
The Yahoo apps are upgraded, and Plex is available with Plex pass, but my preference is to skip them altogether, so I'm using my older logitech revuew for now but will soon replace it with one of the Fire Sticks that Amazon was selling for $19 for a couple of days.
