VIZIO SmartCast E-Series 50" 4K Display

What does it mean when they say refurbished?
What did the set go through before I buy it?

FYI this TV does not have a tuner. You will not be able to plug an antenna into it without a separate external tuner which is not sold by Vizio.

We don’t have details on what happened before. Sorry.

the remote that comes with this is very basic and you are required to use a smartphone or tablet to run the Vizio App to change any of the settings on it.
Also, the built-in chromecast only works well with android devices.
IF you want to plug this into a hulu, appletv, cablebox, or something like that, it might be ok, but it’s very limited and it’s not “smart”- there are no built-in apps.
