Vizio M-Series 40” 1080p Full HD Smart LED TV (2013 Model) (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Watch your favorite movies, sports, and TV shows in sharp clarity with this 40” LED TV, which fills your home theater with crisp visuals in 1080p Full HD resolution. Its intuitive Smart interface gives you access to online streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, so you’ll always have something to watch when there’s nothing on TV.
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. Apps include Netflix, Hulu Plus, and YouTube.
Vivid color, razor-sharp contrast, and expansive clarity pull you deeper into movies, TV shows, and video games. To achieve this quality, 1080p Full HD resolution packs the display with more than 2 million pixels, rendering super-fine images for a picture that looks almost true to life.
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.
HDMI and USB: Connect to More Content
An HDMI port connects high-definition components such as a Blu-ray player, cable box, or Roku Streaming Stick directly to your HDTV. USB input pushes your TV’s connectivity even further, letting you do things such as view photos or listen to music saved on thumb drives, digital cameras, and other USB sources.

Launching in 2002, when rival companies had been selling TVs for decades, Vizio may be a relative newcomer to the TV market, but it 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 most 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.
