I currently work for Best Buy as a Geek Squad Delivery Agent. I have installed several Vizio TVs this year (both M and P series) and I have an E series mounted in my living room. I have experienced some things with these TVs that may be helpful to you.
Vizios have a very good picture. You would need to get a very high end Samsung or LG OLED to get better picture quality. Vizios tend to need a little more tweeking as far as color temperature and audio sync out of the box, where Samsung and LG TVs (especially Samsung) are pretty much at best picture quality out of the box.
Where current Vizios suffer is in their smart apps interface. The UI is slow, and the apps can be buggy. Even on P series TVs. I believe Samsung and Roku have the best TV UIs available right now. But having Chromecast built is is very nice. I was very happy to see that with Vizios 2020 TVs, they are targeting UI performance with Smartcast 4.0 and upgraded internals.
On reliability, our TV repair techs tell me they tend to replace back light driver boards more often on Vizio TVs than on other brands. But their reliability is on par with other brands.
And you are correct, Best Buy employees are not paid on commission. The in-store associates do not have as much experience with actual set-up as the Geek Squad home theater agents.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
My First Ring Daily podcast feed stopped updating on PocketCasts. I haven't received a new podcast sing October 2nd. Any one else having this issue? Anyone know of a fix?
This week, I did a clean refresh of my Windows 10 desktop machine. I then went to the Windows Store to find my library and install any of the store apps that I still wanted.
I noticed that Word 2016, Excel 2016, Powerpoint 2016, Outlook 2016, Publisher 2016 and Access 2016 were available for me to install. So I did, and they work.
I currently have an Office 365 Home subscription and I am not running an insider build of Windows 20 Pro at the moment. Has anyone else had a similar experience? It was my understanding that these apps were limited to Windows 10 S, Office 365 Personal and the latest insider build.
