I was hoping for the 40" tv from the Woot Off…I was ready to pull the trigger on it last night and it sold out
we’ve had this TV for almost a year now and absolutely love it. it’s our second vizio (the previous one still works great; we just wanted something larger than its 37"), and we would definitely buy it all over again. the only minor issue we had was the fact that it took awhile to find a sound setting we liked–we’d definitely recommend a sound bar.
(like most mid-size units, our older vizio had front speakers, so it has been interesting to get used to the sound projecting away from rather than toward us.)

There’s a Visio 50" 4k smart TV going on electronics.woot for $30 more…this doesn’t seem like all that great a deal.
I also have this TV and am happy with it. One of the things we had to tweak was disabling all the video/motion enhancements. Despite their promise to make the picture better, it resulted in odd ghosting and brightness patterns that I just didn’t care for. Once off however, I’m really happy with the picture and performance of this TV.
That said, I have to agree with the poster above, the 4K model is a better deal. And one particular upgrade that’s worth it… the stand. This TV has a single pedestal mount in the middle, and there’s significant ambient movement, wobble, etc. when people walk around in the room. The 4K version above has the 2 small legs at each end which likely eliminates this problem altogether.
I had a Directv technician come out to the house last week for repair. He’s been with Directv for 19 years. I asked him about 4K TVs and if Directv will soon broadcast in 4K. He said one of the reasons Directv and AT&T merged was because they are working on 5G technology that will eliminate the use of home satellite service and broadcast 4K quality over cell towers via 5G, but it will be a while. He said don’t rush buying a 4K television.
I’ve purchased 2 “refurbed” Visios from Woot and love them both. No problems whatsoever from either one of them. I’ve had one for about 4 years. If you’re on the fence, go for it. You won’t regret it.
4K TVs upscale your picture to 4K now. Not as good as a native 4K source, but you get benefit now. Web sources of 4K video exist now, also.
Hehe. Woot agrees with you. They took those down now.
I was hoping a 50" TV would show up on Woot today; however, it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting this one since it received horrible reviews on Amazon. 2 stars! Yikes.
Anything ATT touches will eventually be destroyed. Prepare yourself for a never ending annual price hike.
I’ve got a 55" and a 43" 4k of these vizio m series full array TV’s and you might find a better picture somewhere but not for the money.
I’ve bought a couple of “refurb” items on Woot!. Returned 1 of them. What a hassle.
A 'Refurb" is just a crap-shoot. Some will be OK and others will be junk.
Given my experience with them, I’ll pass. Not worth the effort.
So, the reviews for this are terrible. I’m in the market for a “cheap but good” TV for my spare room, but even as a TV that is only in use a few times a year… the reviews scare me. 2 stars on Amazon is no bueno.
Target has the newer version of this TV on “price-cut” this month for $429.99…add your Red-Card and the price will be close. When it comes to refurbished TVs on Woot… avoid at all costs…not worth the aggravation. I’ve bought 3 from them over the last couple of years…its a hot mess. Last one was a TV in a box…just the TV…no cord…no remote…no stand pieces. Contacted them and they offered my a $14 refund if I kept it…needless to say I sent the whole thing back for a full refund. Not worth the aggravation.
Wow. That’s bullshit. I definitely looked at that TV this morning and it said it had 3 days left up on the site. Or until “sold out”. Well I guess it must’ve “sold out” since they realized they could make more money off of it.
I’ve been watching that sale for a while and eyeballing the 43" 4K one that was $379.99. Walmart has it for $299.99 with 3 in stock as of this post (Wed, 12:24PM PT). They tend to sell out fast! I snagged one and “splurged” on the $26 3-year protection plan.
Strangely enough, Walmart has a second listing for what looks like the exact same refurbished model for $379.99. I can’t tell what the difference is:
OKAY, feel like a total bonehead for asking this. This is a HD tv, right? (embarrased)
