VIZIO E701i-A3 70-inch 1080p 120Hz Razor LED Smart HDTV

in 70 - 79 LED TV sets

This is the cheapest 70″ HDTV in the market (among the well recognized brand names, that is). Picture quality of this VIZIO 70 inch Razor LED Smart HDTV is very good, but when you’re spending 1.5K on a TV, you want it to be “excellent”, instead of “very good”. If that’s all you can afford and you really need a 70″ TV, go for it by all means. If you don’t absolutely need a 70″ TV, but rather go for a 60″ LED TV with GREAT picture quality, check out this high-end Sharp Aquos. If you really need a 70″ and can afford to invest some extra cash for a better quality 70″ LED TV, we recommend this 70″ Sharp or this 70″ Sony or this Samsung.

Is this the BEST 70″ LED TV? No, but it’s pretty popular, likely because it’s considerably cheaper than other models like this Sharp 70″ or this Sony 70″ or this Samsung. This has a refresh rate of 120Hz and is a non-3D model giving it a low price. If you don’t mind the extra expense check out this Sharp 70″
Is this HDTV recommended or NOT? Yes recommended, it has got pretty decent REVIEWS from actual users. There are quite a few negative reviews as well, however, any model is guaranteed to have negative reviews from at least a few customers.

Special Remarks Recommended, if you’re on a budget. However, if you have some extra cash, you should go for this Sharp 70″, this Sony 70″ or this Samsung.
Any negatives Picture quality is very good, but when you’re spending 1.5K on a TV, you want it to be “excellent”, instead of “very good”. So if you’re tight for cash, you could either go for a 60″ high-end LED TV for roughly the same price or invest some extra cash and buy a better quality 70″ LED TV like the one we mention above. The main complaints from users of this TV are lack of deep blacks and lack of uniformity. However, these are NOT HUGE issues and if you’re buying a budget TV, you kind of can’t complain!
