The low-profile stand doesn't swivel, and its stalk is a somewhat flimsy-feeling affair in a triangular shape. The base is slightly thinner than the version, but again, otherwise identical. After four years of complaining about Vizio's remote, I'm going to just cut-and paste my words from here. One aspect of the TV's design did change, however.
The menu system has been updated to the same arrangement found on the step-up M series from It's cleaner-looking than the old E series menus, easy to navigate, and I appreciate the helpful onscreen touches, including descriptions of various menu items and access to the full user manual. In marketing its local dimming, Vizio is using the term "full-array" this year instead of the term "direct" it employed last year. All of those sets have more LEDs behind their screens and more zones of dimming, which should result in more-precise control over dimming, and ultimately, better picture quality.
They also cost more in some cases much, much more than the E. Vizio is the only maker of full-array sets that will divulge the number of dimming zones it uses. And yes, I nonetheless almost always ask , only to watch the engineer in question nod sadly as he tells me he can't tell me.

The inch E-series I'm reviewing here has 12 zones, but Vizio assures me there's almost no visible difference between it and the zone sets in the lineup. The majority of inch and larger members of the E series, including all of the ones with local dimming, have what Vizio calls a "Hz effective refresh rate. You might not like the so-called Soap Opera Effect such smoothing induces, but with most other Hz TVs it's an option you can turn on or off.
With the E series, it's simply not available. In addition, none of the E series can match the motion resolution of traditional Hz TVs.

The inch version I tested is no better than 60Hz sets in this department. The inch and larger models have a "Clear Action ," which improves motion resolution slightly if you turn it on , although still not to the the level I expect. See "Video processing" below for details. You may also notice the absence of 3D in the chart above. Many of Vizio's previous TVs, including in the M series and a few "E" series models , offered passive 3D compatibility.
This year Vizio has dropped the feature entirely, announcing no 3D-compatible televisions so far in its E, M, or P or even the high-end R series.

On the off chance you care, the E series lacks the screen mirroring functionality found on many TVs, and there's no official app to allow remote control from a phone and other sundries. Smart TV: As I mentioned in a recent Samsung review , that company, along with LG , has now adopted a quick-access band of icons overlaid atop the bottom of the screen as the primary gateway to its Smart TV interface.
Vizio's engineers must be snickering into their sleeves, because the company has been using the same design -- and we've been lauding its simplicity -- since That means there are seven app icons visible at a time in the band instead of four, minimizing the scrolling necessary to locate the app you want. Like many systems, you also get some multitasking -- while watching Netflix I was able to call up my Twitter or Facebook feed to overlay the video, for example. If you prefer a full-screen interface, a second tap on the "V" button brings it up, along with the ability to add, remove, and reorder apps within the band.
I appreciated the excellent categorization, especially the ability to disregard the numerous "local TV" apps. Vizio's content selection is very good.
The meta-app "Web video" itself contains numerous sub-apps of specialized videos. Audio support is average: you get iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Pandora, and Rhapsody, but other subscription services like Spotify, which is available on the M series go missing. In our experience, that's no major loss since it's usually easier and better to use a laptop, tablet, or phone anyway. Still, it's worth noting that some TV browsers -- namely Samsung and LG -- have improved a lot recently. Vizio's system also lacks the many extras found on some others, including cable-box control, universal search, voice command, and more.
