Why should you buy the Vizio smart TVs?
Here are a few reasons why you should buy the new Smart TVs by Vizio:
1. Affordable price
Vizio’s Smart TV comes at a price of 18,335 Pakistani Rupees. It will be very hard to find another TV in this price which can have features of a Smart TV.
2. Great port selection

- 2 HDMI slots
- VGA slot
- Standard RF connector for cable or antenna
- A/V inputs
- 2 USB ports for external drive connection
3. Smart TV features at this price
Vizio’s smart TV comes with full version of Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Which means that you can download and run full versions of applications like Netflix, YouTube, and Iflix from the Play Store. It also supports viewing pictures and videos from the external drives using the built-in file explorer. It is very hard to find another TV, in this price range, which offers these kinds of features.
4. Remote cast applications
Vizio smart TVs, through the applications available on both Android and iOS devices, support casting videos and pictures from your mobile devices. This can be very useful if you plan on sharing content from your mobile phone with the rest of the living room.
Note: Although smart cast applications are listed as a feature on the smart TVs, the actual applications are not currently available in Pakistan region at the moment. However, you can sideload the applications and they should work fine.
Things you should consider before buying
Everything is not perfect and shiny with the Vizio Smart TVs, there are some issues which might force you to think twice before buying this product. Here are a few reasons why you should consider before buying Vizio smart TV.
1. Slow performance
Vizio Smart TV has a 512 MB RAM and a very low-performing processor, which translates into a sluggish performance at times. Opening and running apps downloaded from the Play Store at times become a challenge due to the sluggish performance. If you can’t live with waiting for the system to become responsive at certain occasions, you might be better off looking at some other products in the market.
2. Relatively low picture quality
Cramming all those smart TV features into such an affordable price comes at the cost of other essential features. In the case of Vizio Smart TV, these essential features revolve around the picture quality. D32ST254 is not as color accurate and sharp as other options available on market, and its 720p resolution stretches a bit thin on the 32-inch panel. If you want the absolute best in terms of picture quality, there might be other options available in approximately the same price.
If you think the pros outweigh the cons, you can go and buy this Vizio Smart TV from the Yayvo Mega TV Day, which will run from 26th September to 29th September.
