Bringing superb picture quality to the forefront of the home, VIZIO's new, sleek E-Series HDTV holiday line-up features large screen size classes of 70", 60" (E601i), 50" (E500i), and 42" (E420i) LED Smart TVs, perfect for a living room or master bedroom upgrade, and smaller screen size classes of 39" (E390), 32" (E320), 29" (E291) and 24" (E241) LED units, ideal for the kitchen, den or office. Whether mounted on the wall, on a stand or in an entertainment center, the TVs look spectacular thanks to a slim outer bezel.  A high-definition 1080p LED picture reveals richer, more vivid colors, while advanced local dimming technology delivers deeper blacks and brighter whites for overall stunning picture quality.  Select E-Series models also feature an ultra-thin profile, less than two inches, and utilize Razor LED™ backlighting technology.

As the #1 brand in the US for WiFi flat-panel TVs4, VIZIO's 70", 60", 50", 42" and 32" Smart TVs feature VIZIO Internet Apps® with built-in WiFi for endless entertainment options and instant access to Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, VUDU™, Hulu Plus, YouTube®, Pandora®, Facebook®, Twitter® and others, all with the push of a button on the smart remote5.  As VIZIO's flagship model, the 70" Razor LED™ Smart TV sets the new standard for big screens, serving as an affordable luxury for the entertainment enthusiast.

Further reinforcing VIZIO's position as America's #1 Sound Bar Company6, the new E-Series and M-Series Sound Bars amplify the TV-watching experience by offering advanced audio quality in a compact design to fit any space.  The latest SRS technologies featured in the 2.0 and 2.1 models limit unwanted volume fluctuations and allow for a more immersive surround sound experience.   

The new line-up of sound bars pumps out 95 – 101dB of sound with less than 1% total harmonic distortion7, providing audiophiles with a substantial quality and clarity upgrade when compared to standard HDTV speakers.  The E-Series (SB4021E) and M-Series (SB4021M) 2.1 Home Theater Sound Bars feature wireless subwoofers, which generate deep bass from up to 60 feet away without the use of additional cables.  All sound bars connect easily to most HDTVs with just one cable.
