If you're looking for a TV with a big screen and most of the bells and whistles, then you might be interested in Vizio's E-Series 70-inch Razor Smart TV, which is on sale for Cyber Monday at $1,699. Its usual price is $1,999; it is the larger version of the 60-inch E601i-A3, which itself got a solid 3.5 stars from David Katzmaier. Vizio says the 70-inch version is quite different with an even better picture, so we were unable to review the TV as part of a series as we usually do.

The E701i-A3 unit features "Razor" LED backlighting and comes with Vizio's spiffy new 22mm bezel design. It comes with a 120Hz refresh, built-in Wi-Fi with Smart TV, and a reversible QWERTY remote. Unfortunately it lacks 3D, but unless you watch "Avatar" religiously, you won't miss it.

The TV is available from Costco, Amazon, and Walmart. CNET anticipates receiving a 70-inch E701i-A3 shortly, so look out for more information soon.
