Vizio 50” 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (Refurbished)
Everything comes to life on this 4K UHD TV, which displays images in more than 1 billion brilliant colors. And nearly any kind of content is available thanks to the TV’s streaming apps, such as Amazon and Netflix, and multiple connectivity options, including WiFi, HDMI, and USB.
Rich, Cinematic Picture
4K Ultra HD resolution supports an almost uncannily realistic picture. 4K refers to Ultra HD’s more than 8 million pixels—about four times as many as 1080p Full HD resolution—which saturate the display so completely that images retain their lifelike detail regardless of how close or far you are from the screen. This pixel density also supports heightened picture quality for non-4K content.
Smart TV: Entertainment on Demand
Stream a movie rather than walking to a Redbox, or binge on your favorite TV shows online. This Smart TV’s built-in WiFi and preloaded apps expand your entertainment options without the clutter of cables and external streaming devices.
Enhanced Brightness and Depth
LEDs boost brightness, creating a brilliant picture that’s easy to see whether you’re curled up for a late movie or getting ready for a noon kickoff. Striking black and white levels give images more pop, contribute to a more realistic sense of depth, and amplify shadows and other lighting effects. LEDs also consume little power, making them more energy efficient than other forms of display lighting.

Vizio launched in 2002, when rival companies had already been selling TVs for decades. Despite being a relative newcomer to the TV market, Vizio hit the ground running. By 2007, it sold the most LCD TVs in America. Its runaway success is thanks in large part to its bread-and-butter HDTV, the LED-backlit 1080p set that can be found in many living rooms. Yet the company also takes chances on the latest technologies. In 2015, for instance, it launched what is arguably one of the most high-end sets ever produced—the $130,000 Reference Series, a 120” 4K set with support for more than one billion colors and integrated 5.1-channel surround sound. While the hefty price tag will deter most TV shoppers, Vizio will inevitably find a way to pack the cutting-edge technologies into a more consumer-friendly set—the approach to TV-making that brought it success in the first place.
