This is the first time I have ever purchased a refurbished product, so I was very nervous about it...but I have to say, I do not regret it! I am probably going to make many more refurbished product purchases in the future! And buying through overstock was excellent.Read More
This is titled 1st problem. I ordered this television with great expectation, opened and set it up. REMOTE is broke, or at least I hope it is the remote. Can't do anything with the television until I get a new remote. Overstock blew it on this one. Hopefully when the remote is delivered (how long will it take, of course no one can say) I can update this with satisfied.Read More
I read many user reviews on this TV before I bought it. About 20%-30% of the reviews said that the TV had picture problems soon after purchase. I decided to take a chance and bought it anyway, in May 2011. Four months after my purchase, the picture went out completely. At least it was covered by the Vizio in-home warranty. The repair guy replaced the main system board. AFTER FOUR MONTHS. He said the repair would have cost me $350 - $450 without a warranty. He said the system boards are now being made in China instead of Japan, and the boards are just not very reliable. He said he would recommend an LG TV. They seem to be more reliable. All the TVs he buys for himself are LG. Not sure if the LG boards are made in China. He said my Vizio TV actually had an LG display (LG was stamped on the display inside the shell), and that's why the picture was so good. Why does Vizio continue to sell their TVs with main system boards made in China? In my opinion, this indicates that Vizio doesn't place enough importance on reliability. SHAME ON YOU, VIZIO. I won't be buying any more of your products.Read More

FAQs about HDTVs
High-definition televisions, commonly known as HDTVs, are quickly taking over the home entertainment world. They offer improved digital picture, sound and features over older technologies, and few manufacturers continue to produce old CRT (cathode ray tube) TVs. But high-definition TV technology comes with a lot of new terms, like "1080p" and "aspect ratio," that may be confusing. If you're looking for information to help you upgrade your television, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about high-definition television technology.
How to Decorate a Corner TV Stand

How to Choose a TV Wall Mount
One of the great things about high-definition television sets is that they are flat enough to mount easily on a wall.

Entertainment Center Buying Guide
While your television set may be the focal point of your home entertainment activities, what it sits on -- or in -- says a lot about who you are. Is your TV still sitting atop that beaten up particle board TV stand that you bought at a garage sale 10 years ago? Perhaps it's time to upgrade your living room furniture, starting with a new entertainment center. Home entertainment centers have been around a long time and have evolved quite a bit from the massive wooden cabinets of the 1960s and 1970s. Which entertainment center is right for you will depend on what you want to use it for, the components you want it to store and your personal taste in furniture.

1080p-HDTVs vs 1080i-HDTVs
High-definition televisions provide a higher resolution image than standard-definition televisions. Typically, HDTVs are available in three types: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. The 720p and 1080i resolution TVs are quickly being replaced with 1080p as the industry standard, but there are still a lot of them on the market. Here are some comparison points for both 1080i and 1080p televisions to help you decide which will work best for you. What the numbers mean. In both 1080p and 1080i HDTVs, "1080" refers to the number of lines that make up an image on the screen. Each line is made up of tiny colored dots called pixels. The greater the number of lines, the better the resolution or clarity of the image. A 1080p HDTV displays 1,080 lines of pixels, whereas a regular television uses only 480 lines. Both versions of 1080i and 1080p HDTVs are superior to the 720p HDTV and to SDTV. What the letters mean. The difference between 1080i and 1080p HDTV resolution is seen in the way the lines appear on the screen. The "i" in 1080i or 720i stands for interlaced, meaning the odd-numbered lines appear on the screen followed by the even-numbered lines. The HDTV "interlaces" the lines together to produce an image. This happens faster than your eyes can detect, so you only see the full image. The "p" in 1080p or 720p stands for progressive scan, which means that lines appear sequentially on the screen. For this reason, the latter is said to have a sharper, cleaner image. Cost differences. When the technology was first released, a 1080p HDTV was significantly more expensive than 1080i HDTVs. The price of all HDTVs has dropped dramatically in recent years, however. You'll find great deals on both 1080i and 1080p HDTVs, so the price difference is negligible in most cases. Programming availability. Although 1080p picture clarity might be higher than 1080i, the resolution of the video source being used also matters. Most HDTV broadcasts go no higher than 1080i. Most video games are currently made in 720p, but a few are available in 1080p. Blu-ray players do support 1080p, and more Blu-ray discs are being made to take advantage of this capability. Some on-demand cable and satellite providers offer programming in high definition as well. The 1080p resolution and image quality are quickly being adopted by manufacturers and content providers, so look for more content for HDTVs that take full advantage of this technology.
