    Pretty good deal it seems, $599 from Sam's. Quality seems acceptable enough for a third-party manufacturer

    For that price, you really can't go wrong.

    People bash those TVs but I have seen them and they are not that bad.

    My dad picked one of these up for his bedroom and so did my GF's brother. So far they are happy with it, and for the price you can't beat it.

    The new one. I wouldn't buy refurbished either, just for peace of mind.

    Not everyone is a home theatre junkie. For the common user, a VIZIO HDTV fills their need. It does suck to have an obsession like yours and it takes tens of thousands of dollars to satisfy your needs.

    the tvs look like shit :dunno: but you cant argue with someone on a budget

    when you own both tvs and have them side by side you will see why the vizio is so cheap.

    if you had a shitty tv first then got a vizio youll be like dude looks great etc etc etc then once you get more money and buy a nicer tv youll be like wow this one looks even better
