Vizio EOi-B Flat-Screen Television Review

A flat-screen television is quite a significant investment. So, it is only logical that you make the most sensible purchases. Our team of technology experts has recently reviewed the Vizio EOi-B model. Are the claims that it is one of the best televisions on the market justified? Let’s take a more in-depth look before passing judgment.


Basic Features

At dimensions of 42 inches, this television provides superior visibility for larger rooms. 1080p resolution, LCD technology, a matte screen finish and LED back-light dimming capabilities are a few of the main features that our panel first noted. A drop-down menu screen is also present. This provides the user with basic functions such as picture, audio and network modification options. We observed a lack of certain features such as no IR blaster, no three-dimensional glasses and no cable control box. However, this Vizio model is compatible with smart television systems.

Attractive Qualities

When compared to similarly sized LCD televisions, the Vizio EOi-B is without a doubt the best priced. In fact, some users observed that the picture quality outperformed expensive competitive brands such as LG and Panasonic. The dimming quality was also fantastic. This feature alone may very well be one of the factors that has allowed such a model to compete against other plasma televisions.


Of course, this model is not likely to offer the extremely high definition that would be found with a plasma television. A rather “generic” look in terms of its physical design may put those off who are looking for more striking features. The bottom support does not swivel and some testers found it to be quite flimsy. As mentioned previously, there is no ability to adapt to three-dimensional technology with this model.

This is a great option if you are on a limited budget and still want to enjoy excellent picture quality. If you are willing to do away with 3D-compatible systems and you do not mind a rather “plain” exterior design, we feel that the Vizio EOi-B series may very well be the television for you.
