Yes and no: for TVs, anything less than $10 per inch in a really good deal. With the warranty, it's exactly that. Seems like a poor idea to not get a warranty on a re-furb LCD.

I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
Purchases: 18 / 11 (nobody cares what, so I won't tell you);
Brownies of Cannabis: 1 / 12 (Thanks, Wootalyzer! -- would it help if I called them something else?).

That remote looks like it time traveled from the 1980's. All it needs is brushed metal buttons.

I bought this from Woot back in November when it was $20 more, and I love it. I use it as a monitor for my computer and to watch Blu-rays on. The picture is amazing, the color is spot-on and it is a great deal. The only problem I've had is that the TV get stuck in a vertical scroll when the resolution is set to 1920x1080. I've yet to figure out a cause, but I prefer a little lower resolution anyway.

Wouldn't the water on the screen ruin it?

Get a Squaretrade extended warranty. I have one on everything electric in my house.

Same Product from Wal-mart, $480.

Beaten to the punch.

Plus, as stated before, anything under $10 an inch is usually great for a television.

this model was my first flat-screen TV purchase, and i absolutely love it! after 3 1/2 years, it is still in perfect working order, and i've never experienced a single issue with its performance. vizio makes great TVs at a great price...

p.s. that remote seems ancient! none of my vizio remotes look like that at all.

so wootchawootchawootchawant?! you're so funny with that money that you flaunt...

At that size I don't think it a big deal, I could be wrong. Its a good price for a 37".
I bought the 47" vizio they had on here recently and I love it, Great picture quality!! Although it is 120hz.

The remote, from my experience of 30 remotes (or more) looks really ergonomic. It should
fit the hand well and the buttons appear to be easy to push and find without looking. I give it
9 out of 10 without even touching it It looks like I can handle it better than most you get today.

I have this TV. I cannot get it to negotiate HDCP with my Xbox 360. It works fine with all my other devices, though. YMMV.

Pretty good deal but only 60HZ refresh rate isnt the best but for the price hard to pass up

60hz is fine for movies. 120hz makes movies look unnatural.

Even if you don't like the unnatural smoothness, the real utility of 120 Hz is that it's the lowest common denominator of 24 and 30.

You may have a similar TV but it's not the same as this one if you've had it for 3.5 years. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure this (E370VL) is the 2010 model. If you bought your TV in 2007 you probably have a VX37L or a VW37L.

I'm in for one. Stepping into the late 1990's. Second to last step in fazing out the CRTs.

After this, assuming the referb is OK, there will only be one tube left in the house.

There can be only one.

I have had the 120hz version of this 37" Vizio for a year and a half and love it. It is the best under $1,000 TV I have seen. Even those with Sony's etc. are amazed at how clear the picture is. I think they are all suckers, you get way more, for way less with Vizio. I even got a Vizio Blu-Ray player with mine for free! I went out 6 months ago and bought a 26" Vizio and Vizio Blu-Ray for my upstairs spare room. All 4 were less than what a friend paid for a 42" Samsung 60hz that is no better. As I said earlier: suckers!

Amazon review mentions a low hum through speakers at all times, even on mute. Anybody know if this is common or just some bad models?

Is there an option to turn off the lighted logo on the front? It always bugged me on a family member's vizio.

Thanks in advance.

consumerreports.org

"Had a hum from the day it was purchased. Attempted Vizio troubleshooting steps but hum remained. Called support and had tech come out. He replaced the AV board and hum no longer exists."

Googling "Vizio E370VL hum" does reveal a few complaints.


And:

Vizio support page

"The back-lit Vizio logo stays on even when the TV is off. (Come on, Vizio!)"

"If I had ONE complaint it would be that the VIZIO logo/power-on indicator is placed right under the screen... and is rather large and bright, which distracts my eye while watching the set. So much so i had to place a piece of black electricians tape across it to block the light. Grrr!"

Bought one of these when Woot had them in November. Bought a warranty just in case, but has been working great & I've had no issues with it. Can't beat that price (even with a warranty)!

Edit: If anyone has any issues with the sound on the TV (specifically the volume differences between different channels) make sure to turn SRS TruSurround HD and SRS TruVolume off from the menu.

I agree with Tdavis81. 37 inch is not enough for me too. I absolutely prefer a VIZIO SV470 instead.

There aren't any 37" TVs cheaper on Amazon. I'll sleep on it.
