You probably have the picture set to "stretch." Go to menu, then "wide" and choose either normal or wide mode.

It does for me. I have it mounted in a large bedroom and I find it adequate. If you want booming audio you may consider connecting it to your audio system.

The speakers are ok but in order to really have the sound match the TV. You might want to invest in at least a sound bar for the TV.

Thank you for inquiring about our product.

There are commercial LCD cleaners available in electronic departments. You can also mix 50/50 distilled water with denatured alcohol and apply it to a soft cloth. We recommend that you use a micro fiber cloth to clean the screen to avoid scratching your TV's screen.

Thanks again and have a great day.

answer 2
Do not spray cleaner directly on the screen.

Spray a window cleaner on a soft cotton cloth, then gently wipe screen with gentle pressure.

You want to avoid anything that may scratch.

Yes. Need to set up your PC for DLNA steaming over your network and then look for that source on the Vizio. Check your PC operating system for instructions. It was farily easy to do on Windows7.
