Many people are curious how Vizio is perceived as an overall brand. They’ve done a great job advertising on some big platforms like the Superbowl, ESPN and other major networks. However, many people are suspicious of a new electronics brand when many of the big players (like Sony, Samsung, LG, etc.) have been around for dozens of years. We’ll provide a breakdown and rating of each important area. Remember to check the rating for each individual TV though as not all TV’s (even from the same brand) are created equal.
Vizio Product Quality
The majority of new brands are luring people in with extremely low prices but the picture quality and general quality of the HDTV really suffers. However, Vizio became the #1 LCD TV manufacturer by creating a good quality HDTV at a reasonable price. Vizio’s higher-end TV’s can compete with the well-known manufacturers but they also create some lower-end TV’s that compete price-wise with some of the budget brands. Vizio truly has a wide range of products with an overall “better than average” product quality.
We have also seen that Vizio is continuing to improve in this area. Complaints about Vizio TV’s seem to be come more infrequent where they used to be pretty hit-and-miss on specific models. We would find some TV owners that loved a specific model and had zero problems whereas another person with the same Vizio model had a horrible experience. As Vizio is improving, we recommend sticking with their new TV models to avoid any past problems.
Vizio Pricing & Value
Vizio made a name for themselves by beating the pricing of the big brands with a similar level of quality TV. Vizio TV’s are generally in the mid-range area between the expensive brands and the newer, cheaper brands some of which you probably have never heard of.
The true selling point for Vizio is the VALUE. Everyone wants a high quality HDTV but doesn’t want to spend $3,000+. Specific Vizio TV models have topped the charts in past years for the Best HDTV of the Year. It’s undeniable that Vizio makes a great quality TV at a great price.
Vizio’s unbelievable value is what makes it one of our Editor’s Picks. Make sure you check out a comparable Vizio TV if you are shopping any other brands.
Vizio Customer Service
In most cases, you’ll never have to deal with a TV manufacturer’s customer service team. But in the event you run into an issue where you need setup assistance or have to go through the warranty process, you may have to call those dreadful 1-800 numbers, go through their phone trees and try to get in touch with an actual human being.
Based on user reports submitted through this website, we’ve heard numerous complaints that Vizio’s customer service was lacking. Keep in mind that a customer service team can’t fix all of your problems. If you’re out of warranty, there isn’t much they can do for you.
We encourage you to take the customer service rating with a grain of salt. We have not personally called the Vizio support line (we do own Vizio’s but have had no problems) and we recognize that we are more likely to hear complaints than praise. If you are concerned about a company’s customer service abilities, we recommend calling and testing them prior to purchasing your next HDTV.
Vizio Overall Rating
Overall, we’re very happy with Vizio and personally own Vizio TV’s. We understand people are curious about the brand being an up and comer but we feel that you don’t have much to worry about. The quality on certain sets are on par with the big brands and the pricing/value is probably the best in the market at this point. If you’re looking for an LCD or LCD/LED TV, don’t hesitate to purchase a Vizio HDTV!
