The Vizio E500i-B1 presents a strong value for the amount of screen space it possesses. Similar TVs from major brands sell in the mid to high $700 range. The picture quality of this Vizio TV and its $650 price tag is excellent. Strong contrast and picture depth from front and center is the highlight in the picture quality realm. Vizio Internet Apps Plus doesn’t do anything new for the platform, but everything works well and doesn’t leave much to be desired.
Getting the most out of your Smart TV requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.

|Great gaming TV. It has low input lag and an effective blur reduction feature||Poor gray uniformity. You can actually see every single LED behind the screen|
|Great overall picture quality, both in dark and bright rooms||The full-array local dimming feature makes the picture worse|
|Limited viewing angle. As with most TVs, the colors change when you view it at an angle|
