VIZIO HDTV with SmartCast -- Under $170!

Updated on January 27, 2018

I continue to be amazed at VIZIO's ability to combine state-of-the-art technology with quality and value -- and offer products that are exactly what people want.

For under $170 you can get a brand new HDTV with Chromecast that you can also use as a computer monitor. I'm referring to the VIZIO SmartCast D-series 24” Class Full HD 1080p LED Smart TV.

VIZIO HDTV with Smartcast Apps -- Extraordinary Value and Versatility

The VIZIO SmartCast D-series 24” Class Full HD 1080p LED Smart TV works well for the kitchen where you can catch your favorites while preparing supper. At this price (under $170), you could also put one in the bedroom or kid's room.

Its versatile design allows you to use it as a computer monitor, as well as HDTV. It has built-in Wi-Fi (802.11n) as well as a standard Ethernet connection. Setup is easy.

And it comes with SmartCast built in, offering a world of online content. Every VIZIO SmartCast TV has Chromecast built-in. You can get thousands of Chromecast-enabled apps on your SmartPhone and stream right to your TV. -- Amazon Video on Demand, Flickr, Netflix, Rhapsody, Twitter, VUDU and more. ready to launch on-screen at the touch of a single button on the remote. More apps from other providers are available by browsing the available apps.

But wait, there's more. VIZIO is offering this new SmartCast model for $139 (shipping included).

What do you get for under $270?

You get these features

  • SmartCast Smart TV
  • LED Edgelit Backlight
  • Wi-FI 802.11n
  • DTS StudioSound
  • DTS TruSurround
  • 1080p Full HD
  • ENERGY STAR R 7.1

You Can Use Your SmartPhone as a VIZIO Smartcast Remote

You can download the free VIZIO SmartCast app to your SmartPhone and use it to set up your Smartcast HDTV Or you can use the VIZIO included remote.

SmartCast TV makes it easy for you to find content you like, then stream it. It allows you to more easily control your content. It's easier to discover new shows including movies in 4K UHD and Dolby Vision HDR.

Is there Anything Wrong with This 24-Inch VIZIO?

For under $170 this D24f-F1 far exceeds expectations. You get many features that are available on larger, higher priced models. Of course, the larger models have even more stunning features.

With two two-inch speakers, the sound quality does not compare to the full-bodied vibes you get with larger models. But you can fiddle with the controls and improve the sound a bit from the out-the-box settings.

Here are some features you will not get with this HDTV: digital output, DTS TruVolume, Smart Dimming, and limited multi-media features.

But, hey, for $170 you are getting a deal.

      The 1080p at 22" is what impressed me, along with all the specs you included. I thought this was a good hub. If I were looking for a 22, this could have swayed me. But I just bought a 26!
