That “weirdly overly realistic” look comes from having the “smooth view” feature turned on. Turn it off and it will look normal.
All LED TV’s are LED back-lit LCD’s. However, there are two kinds of lighting, back-lit or edge-lit. This one is edge-lit, the lower level of the two types.
I was thinking that too, then I realized thats the thickness with the stand on.
Product site says it has a 0.86” thin profile with the max. depth of the TV itself being 2.37". From the pics it looks like it must be 0.86" thick around the edges and gradually thicken to the 2.37" as you get to the much thicker middle of the TV.
Dimensions from the Product’s spec page http://www.vizio.com/led-lcd-hdtvs/m260va.html say this:
With Stand: 25.35"W x 17.00"H x 5.86"D
Without Stand: 25.35"W x 17.00"H x 2.30"D
I own this TV. I purchased it at Walmart a few months ago. Not sure why Woot! claims it’s a 720p/1080i TV, because it’s definitely a 1080p TV.
Aside from that, it’s a beauty. .75" thick, LED backlit, sleek design. It’s a great deal for the price if you don’t need a humongous television.
The stand is kind of wobbly, but that may be because my floor is a tad bit uneven where I have it sitting.
I bought it for $328 new. Refurb for just above $200 seems OK, however, the price has been going down on it.
Anyone have any suggestions regarding the best wall or desk mount for this TV? I see tons of them on monoprice.com most of which have great reviews. This will be used in a kitchen where it will be used flat against the wall as well as extended out and turned 90 degrees to face sideways towards a separate viewing area.
Looks like with a max width of 25.35" that anything with at least a 13" extension ought to allow one to turn it 90 degrees sideways at full extension.
From the Vizio Product Page:
Native Panel Resolution: 1366 x 768 pixels
Signal Compatibility: 1080i, 720P, 480P, 480i
Yes, I am aware of that. The box, however, has a 1080p sticker on it. My inputs also give me 1080p through Component and HDMI. Not sure if there were two models of very similar specifications, but this is definitely the TV I have.
Is there a model number on your TV?
L.M.A.O, Amazon Goldbox just had this NEW for $198.
Way to go Woot.
Today has made up for it though!
I just tried to snag the Amazon lightning deal, and it sold out in literally less than a second. It said 0% claimed, I click add to cart, it says 100% claimed and does not even take me to a buy page or sorry page. Good luck buying this thing for cheaper than listed price at a store, if you’re not the first one there you’re not going to even see it in stock.
I’m happy paying $35 more for a refurbished model without the headache of Walmart crowd surfing. You know with one of these models at least one tech has looked at it and turned it off and on
Speaking of your Wootname, that sounds even harder to get than a Baggie of Cthulhu.
when does the wal-mart deal start?
my local wal-mart is open 24 hrs
A B&W TV
That t just snuck up in there.
Note to self: Reread posts for sloppy typing.
@llandar I assumed that was your write-up. Somebody is gonna be cranky for a while.
Tried to buy this at Walmart. Sold-out online and the four closest stores. Maybe a Woot-off!
