"With picture quality that outdoes that of numerous more-expensive TVs, VIZIO’s E series likely represents the best value of 2014."

Picture Perfect Brilliance.
More Zones. Better Picture.
VIZIO’s Full-Array LED backlight technology delivers brilliant picture quality as it distributes LEDs across the entire screen for superior light uniformity and picture performance.
Active LED Zones™ x5 (local dimming) dynamically adjust the LED backlighting in each area of the screen to match the content on the screen providing unparalleled picture contrast and crystal-clear detail with deep, pure black levels.
Full-Array LED backlighting across the entire rear of your television screen provides superior light uniformity, color consistency, and a more responsive picture.
