Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good performance in a dark room
The VIZIO E-Series is a good home theater TV because it offers good picture quality when placed in a dark environment where it can reproduce beautiful images that have inky blacks and bright and colorful highlights.
The blacks look good thanks to the TV's high native contrast ratio that measures at 5900:1 which is a decent result for a TV in this price range. Additionally, the blacks don't look cloudy thanks to their high uniformity.
Pro Requires no calibration
You'll not need to spend time calibrating this TV because its out-of-the-box color accuracy is quite high. The color inaccuracies cannot be spotted by a human eye because of the TV's average color inaccuracy measures at the dE of 1.97.
Con Poor viewing angles
Those who view the TV at an angle will see a degraded picture because of the TV's bad overall viewing angles. For example, the image's black levels will start to shift once the viewing angle gets larger than 13 degrees.
