We decided on this TV because it was an awesome price at Sams and it Vizio is a well known brand. We had read some reviews online that said it had problems with sound, but we weren't too concerned because don't have that big of a living space. We got it home and it was very easy to get out of the box and set up. Had it up and going within an hour. The clarity is absolutely stunning. If you get too close up though, it gets kind of pixelized. I would recommend sitting at least 5 feet away from the TV. There are multiple pictures options including wide screen, panorama, and zoom. It's nice to be able to choose what size you want your picture. There are also other settings that you can play with to make the TV play sports and movies better. We didn't see much difference while using these settings. Since we had read bad reviews about the sound, we expected the sound quality to be bad. That is not the case! The sound quality was awesome and we have never put the TV about 1/4 volume. Highly recommend this TV.
