I saw this LCD Vizio television on sell during Black Friday and on a impulse I decided to jump on the deal. The saying "you get what you pay for" is now something I live by after purchasing this television. Don't get me wrong it's not a bad television for the right price, but picture quality isn't up to my standards. The colors are very noticeably washed out and it has trouble with different shades of black. I tried calibrating the television and it just wasn't capable of looking much better. I can tolerate the washed out effect, but whenever a decent percentage of black appears it looks pixleted, especially at a range of 5 to 10 feet. From a further distance it's not too bad, but it's still noticeable to any one with decent vision. Viewing angles aren't the greatest and the sound needs to be on 20 in order to get optimal sound. If you want the best picture quality I suggest you save your money and buy something you'll be satisfied with in the long run.
