Not desperate for a new TV, I have a Sony LCD 61" in the family room, but I do want to upgrade and surprised my kids. Been looking at a Vizio 70" LED SmartTV, here is a link to it:

http://www.walmart.c...art-TV/21311918

Walmart seems to be the best price, but also know that TVs go down in price between March and April, so I may hold off till then. Seems the Vizio has gotten some great ratings, even in Consumer Reports. Samsung is just a great TV but very expensive.

What do you guys have and/or recommend? For those with a Vizio, please give me the pros and cons of it.

Thank you

I stroll the aisles often and find that the vizio always catches my eye. The picture is amazing.

Mako, I too compared them, now of course the Samsung is in a class of it's own but so is the price. Looked at Sharp:

More money, didn't get better reviews then the Vizio, the picture to me seem the same. Looks like I will go with the Vizio, just like to know what others have, or those that own a Vizio.

Also searching the internet seems that the screens on the Vizio are LGs, and the company that makes them for Vizio also makes the guts for Panasonic, so good chance the guts of a Vizio are Panasonic

Thanks for quick reply JJoe

We have 2 vizios, price was right, good quality, no issues at all. Don't have any cons on it. Vizio is also an American company which is rare in consumer electronics, they aren't manufactured here though.

50 inch Samsung in the family room and a bunch of Vizios around the house for the kids' gaming. Really tough to beat the picture quality on the Samsung. The Vizios are fine for bedroom TVs and for the kids XBoxes.

I have Samsung in the living rooms and vizios in the bedrooms. The Samsungs are more expensive and nicer than the Vizios but the Vizios are a better buy in my opinion.

Don't even waste your money buying anything else but a Samsung. Samsung & LG are the 2 best quality TV's on the market, I know Vizio's are popular because of their price, but their picture quality, features, and overall quality is not up to par with Samsung or LG. I own an LG and when it goes south I will be getting a Samsung

My parents have a vizio and they havent had any issues. Not sure if you have a costco nearby. If you do and youre a member, check out their prices.

Get a Samsung. Their models have a fairly large price range.
Sony isn't bad either.

My first flat screen was 46" sony bravia , i loved that tv, one day my son got yelled at and took it out on the sreen with a plastic nerf crossbow. Destroyed the tv and it was only like three months old. Maybe thats why i dont like crossbows. :banghead:
I was so pissed off i had to leave the house for a while so nobody got killed.

We just got a 55" Samsung LED 120Hz and it is simply amazing. Very good looking unit and the picture quality is wonderful. It looks like you are watching the shows live right in front of you

Samsung. There are very few makers of display screens in the world (the engineers, not the factories). Samsung makes all of the high-end displays for other companies. Knowing this I went out and got a Samsun 46" TV. Holy crap there is no comparison with features and picture quality. Hands down one of the best looking screens I've ever seen.
