It uses Vizio QoS (Quality of Sound) technology to produce superior high-definition streaming by intelligently prioritizing Internet traffic, thereby resulting in fewer delays, especially when watching HD movies. In particular, the 5GHz band is geared mainly for time-sensitive traffic, whereas the 2.4GHz band covers everything else. Additional features include a USB interface for accessing a USB hard drive, Wi-Fi Protected Setup, and both PC/Mac compatibility.

    Erik: Yes, typically it does. In the case of Vizio, they've attempted to reuse the abbreviation as Quality of Sound. A simple Google search returns many examples of Vizio press releases using QoS in this way. Dec 14, 10
