Vizio E600I-B3 Review – 60-inch LED HDTV

Originally Reviewed on June 19th, 2014

Up for Review: Vizio E600I-B3 LED HDTV.

The E600I-B3 forms an important part of the E-series lineup for 2014. Price being the most attractive feature, this is a model that comes flooded with features and various futuristic upgrades. Among the best features are a full array LED backlighting, quite upgraded from the normal edge lit backlighting we had seen in models from 2013. The huge 60 inch screen is supported by 16 zones of powerful Active dimming providing increased contrast and sharpness in the imaging. Compared to the 55 inch model from the E series that has 12 zones of Active Dimming, this is a much better model in this aspect. An added advantage is the Vizio Internet Apps platform that allows users to do more things that could have been done with a traditional TV. The E600I-B3 from Vizio is priced quite low at around $900 – a healthy tag given the features and screen size. Apart from the core specs, it would feel quite nice to have the E600I-B3 in the household. The TV comes with a 10 mm thin bezel finish and beautiful detail and finishing. The E600I-B3 can be easily compared to some of the best models in the market and it does give a healthy alternative to all.

Vizio E600I-B3 Features and Specifications:

  • Display Screen Type: LED
  • Panel Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Full Array LED Backlighting
  • Active Dimming
  • 120 Hz Refresh Rate
  • HDMI Ports Quantity: 3
  • Energy Star 6.0 Compliant

The Vizio E600I-B3 stands to be a great choice for entry levels models with 60 inch screen size. There are more zones for Active Dimming – a powerful technology making a real difference in the color contrast and sharpness. Divisions as a result become less noticeable and even a watchful eye cannot differentiate any picture aberration. This technology also introduced deeper blacks and more subtle whites and a huge color gamut. It certainly is an enriching experience with the E600I-B3. Further with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a fast response time, judders are reduced to a great extent and even live broadcasting looks smooth.

While the E600I-B3 cannot be compared to the quality of a plasma screen, it does provide enough depth in imaging in a solid budget. The Picture Setting Menu is quite advanced in this model and there are huge numbers of adjustments one can bring in. However; the E600I-B3 does suffer from a poor quality side viewing angle. Going beyond 20 degrees results in substantial loss in color detail and clarity. As a result, you will not have the same quality of output from all corners of the room. It is also essential that you place the screen at eye levels while wall mounting the TV.

Complimenting the picture settings, the SRS audio technology does provide an immersive experience. However, one might have issues with the clicking noise that the fan makes once the TV is turned off and high pitched humming when it is on. Other than these setbacks the E600I-B3 comes with 3 HDMI ports and Vizio Internet Apps for an all round home entertainment experience. gives Vizio E600I-B3 4/5 stars.
