VIZIO M401i-A3 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Reviews :
Initially the TV was overwhelmingly big and gave me a headache. I was very concerned that I had ordered a TV that was too big. Happily within about 4 days I got used to it and now enjoy the really big screen. I sit about 12 feet from it and enjoy the big picture. Do yourself a HUGE favor and check the review here where someone lists the settings he found on an AV forum to tune your TV's video settings. The settings that the TV is set to when it arrives are terrible. The settings are so bad, that you'll be very concerned about the quality of the TV. I found the video settings on a review here and it did MAGIC to how the TV display works. Add in about 10-15 hours of "burn in" time for the TV and the TV just gets better and better and better. The sharepness and HD for such a huge TV is awesome. Vizio packed an amazing amount of value into this set. Again, give your eyes a few days to get used to this size TV, and go to the review here that shows the right picture settings and you'll be SO HAPPY! The audio quality is pretty decent though I'll be getting a separate home theater sound system for this TV.
Great Picture with Exceptional Sound
Overall this TV is the best bang for the buck with all the features it has: Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon Instant Video, and many Yahoo services.
Great TV -- if you have remote problems here's how to fix from Vizio
Great picture; phenomenal TV. Really it will come down to the remote.
As many people have said, the remote has intermittent problems. Sometimes it would work, a few minutes later it would stop, and then start again. I had it too, it drove me nuts. I suspect there could be more than one reason, however, my reason was fixed very quickly from Vizio customer support. It's below if it helps you.
Here's what they told me about fixing remote issues....
"I would recommend performing a power cycle on your remote. Please follow the steps in this order:
1. Manually turn on the TV. (the Square button on the back of the TV)
2. Bring the remote close to the TV and point it at the lower left-hand side when facing the TV.
3. With the remote in hand, simultaneously press the Forward >> button and the Enter button for roughly 10-12 seconds. You will know it is complete when the backlight of the remote turns off.
4. Release the two keys.
5. Press the Power on button key on the remote control to test if it is properly working.
If the only buttons not responding are at the channel up and down, please perform a channel scan to refresh your listings and restore remote functionality."
Stunning 3D Picture. Easy to use Internet Apps. A Real Find!
I was blown away by the 3D. It was terrific. So, the 3D feature that I was only so-so on turned out to be great and I've ordered a few more 3D blu-rays to enjoy. The tv picture itself is very clear and crisp. Fast action scenes do not show any ghosting. I have a Direct TV HD Genie system running to it and the HD shows, movies and sports look incredible on this screen. Set up was a snap and simply required plugging in my networks access information and then everything worked. Can easily access Amazon.com instant videos and my Amazon movie list, which is also a nice feature.
Bottom line: I highly recommend this tv. As a matter of fact, I liked this tv so much (it has a very nice, modern minimalist frame and stance), that I ordered its smaller brother (50") for my bedroom. About the only negative is that there really are no buttons on the tv -- everything is controlled through the remote. There is a special on/off button on the back, but it isn't placed where you can easily access it. But, I have enough universal remotes that I have it keyed over to a few of them, so that wasn't much of a negative for me. Delivery from Amazon.com was fast and easy. The delivery guys unboxed it and came when they said they would.
