Not too bad, but could get an E series for not too much more from Dell, plus Dell eGC.

I got a TCL 4K HDR* Roku TV for $350 recently. Love it. And i felt this Vizio deal isn't great at that time.

Looks like VIZIO TV's not a DLNA compliant; also there is no WiFi direct option. For the modern times these TV sets isn't look so "smart", at least for gadget lovers.

Yeah, picture and build quality is OK but lack of the modern features kills this deal for me, these TV's are outdated (and manufacturing date doesn't really matter, it's bad and outdated design issue).

Not trying to be negative (or ignorant) but is having a TV with wifi that important? I have a receiver with wifi and a PS3 and Fire stick that are both connected through wifi. What additional benefit would a wifi TV give someone?

This has Wifi and basic SmartTV apps.
I believe the "Wifi direct" option that person was talking about is the ability to mirror mobile device screen to the TV. Vizio calls it Smartcast which is found on E-series and up, but I think the actual standard is called Miracast.

The media player on the 2016 Vizio's D-series supported DLNA. I believe Plex client app did as well. The 2017 D-series appears to use the same VIA Plus OS, so it would be odd if they didn't still support DLNA and Plex.

@caseyj10, I just meant our very own scenario of the TV usage. So, our current TV (very nice 55'' Panasonic Viera; unfortunately our 2 yo daughter broke the screen, what's why I'm looking for the replacement) supports DLNA rendering out of the box. It's extremely useful if you want to show something (pictures or captured videos) from our cellphones (Lumia 950, I especially created a nice app for casting [microsoft.com]).

All you need is just run the app on your handset and tap photo or video (or start slideshow), you'll get a "large screen results" immediately.

WiFi direct is very useful if you are streaming screen content of your phone (Continuum mode for Windows 10) or "Screen cast" for Android devices. You may believe me or not, but some games are looking very new and exciting on the big screen.

VIZIO TV's doesn't have these features at all and it's a pity Frown As I said, this TV picture quality (and overall product quality, i.e. built quality) is good. DLNA is just a software feature, you don't need additional hardware (this TV already has a powerful CPU and Ethernet). WiFi direct chip cost, literally, pennies (for mass production).

As for me, it looks like this manufacturer (VIZIO) don't care much about customers and new features. This isn't good. By the way, my Viera TV received about 4 firmware updates during last four years...

I just called VIZIO support and asked about Miracast and DLNA compatibility. After long waiting (support girl contacted engineers) I've got an answer: this TV is NOT DLNA or Miracast compliant. The girl said: "it may work with some devices but may not with the others, we can not guarantee". Also, there are no DLNA or Miracast mentioned in the user manual.

P.S. BTW, this TV don't have WiFI, wired Ethernet only.
