I picked up the 70" model on Black Friday - decent TV for the money and the “web” features work pretty well. This is about a $200 savings over the regular price - which you could put towards a 5 year warranty.

How are the TV refurbs ?
I am a bit worried that they will send a super used unit not a slightly used one.
The refurb Ninja blender looks like was used in a frat house for a whole year…
The 65" is $1,179.99 new at Costco. Same model #
These are good deals but pay attention to the refresh rate it might not be a real 120hz. Do your research before you buy that’s all I’m saying.
The specs and features state it correctly. 24" & 32" are 60Hz. The rest are native 60Hz or 120Hz Effective Refresh Rate with their motion smoothing technology.
But what does THAT mean?
I purchased one of these from Walmart a few months ago. I returned it soon after purchase. I loved the picture quality and the apps but the wifi range was TERRIBLE. All other wifi devices in my house picked up the signal perfectly where this TV was placed but the TV could not keep a strong signal and internet video would not play smoothly or quickly. It would have to stop and buffer every 30 seconds or so and sometimes it would tell me it had no connection at all. Fine unit if you are going to be plugging it in directly with an ethernet cable. Perhaps I just got a bad unit…anyone else experience this?
I bought the 32 inch for my master bedroom which is about 40 feet from my router. The apps and wifi do not work this far away. After multiple calls to Vizio customer service they admitted that this model is not a true smart TV. it has no processor so it can’t take a weak wifi signal. The TV needs to be within 25 feet of the router or less if there are walls. My laptop, tablet and 2 phones all work on wifi in the bedroom. It does have a great picture and sound but it’s wifi is very disappointing.
IM still working on a workaround which will probably be a $75 range extender.
I had the exact same experience!
If you have cable internet you might do better by moving your modem and router and plugging your TV right into the router. Guaranteed no signal loss and a lot less than $75…
Here’s an interesting article that I found a while back. It does a good job of explaining it.
I bought the EXACT model # 70" version at Best Buy in March. I paid a helluva lot more for it, and I got a deal! The picture quality is great. I do have some issues with the TV color presets. I can’t find a picture mode that works great during the day, but isn’t so bright at night.
I have the TV in a VERY bright room (the light blocking blinds have to wait until next tax refund! PRIORITIES!)
My last three TVs have been Samsung, and I am sold on Samsung. In hindsight, I do wish I’d have purchased the Samsung 75" for a bit (ok bunch) more money, but it is a bigger screen!
This is a great TV. One last minor complaint, it is SLOW to respond to the remote control, and that bothers me! Other than that, the 70" is a deal!
For anybody who has not actually used motion blur/motion plus, it really does make a difference in the picture, and the way your brain sees it. It makes almost everything you watch look like you are watching it live, on set. It’s called the “soap opera effect”. While some may not notice it, if you do (and don’t like it), you can disable it in the video settings.
Is anyone using the 50 inch model for off the air signals? I find the tuner sensitivity of many digital TVs to be weak.
I’ve purchased 2 refurb Smart Visio TVs from Woot in the past 2 years and love them. They arrived packaged in their original boxes and looked cosmetically perfect and have worked flawlessly. They are a great TV for the money.
And here’s an excerpt from that article:
So there IS reason for suspicion here.
