Vizio E32-C1 - the best cheap 32 inch Smart LED TV?

One of the most popular and best selling TVs in Amazon these days is the cheap 32 inch Smart LED Vizio E32-C1

Vizio E32-C1 cheap LED TVMany of you probably haven't even heard of the brand Vizio but it happens to be quite popular in some online stores.

Today, we are taking a look at one of their best selling Smart TVs which is the Vizio E32-C1. This TV has been quite popular in Amazon web store where thousands of people purchased it online and also shared their feedback about it.

It is kind of surprising that the E32-C1 is rated pretty high and most consumers are happy with the purchase. So what is it that impressed the buyers so much?

Design and looks

Vizio E32-C1 has design very similar to the Samsung UN32J5003 which is another best seller in North America - simple, with a stand that is not going to suit any taste (looks like a spider on sick leave to me).

 The frame is thinner than the one on UN32J5003 which is an advantage considering the fact these two TVs are direct competitors.

My review of the VIZIO D40f-E1 40 inch Full HD LED TV


The price for the Vizio E32-C1 is pretty reasonable. Offered at around $230 at BestBuy and Amazon this TV really starts to make sense and a very strong competition for other budget 32 inch LED TVs like these.

As I already mentioned the biggest competitor of the E32-C1 is the Samsung UN32J5003 which costs around $300 but currently on sale at Amazon for just $180 (what a deal that is).
