I did lots of research among 55" TVs, specifically LED. I looked at some higher-priced units that have premium "Edge-Lit" LED tech, but I also read that could be less reliable and usually has slightly less contrast ratio.
I'm very very happy with my choice, and all the features work wonderfully.
The smart-dimming feature ended up annoying me, but it's pretty easy to turn it off through the settings menu.
Definitely recommend!

Mine blew a few weeks out of warranty. I have never had that happen with any other tv i've owned. They usually fail right away or last. This one started flashing like a strobe at us. I called Vizio and they refused to accept any responsibility even after admitting it was a manufacturing defect. They did offer to repair it for $99 but would not guarantee that the repair would work. Will the repair guy shows up, looks at the tv and says he can't fiix it. So on top of the dead set i am out another $99 believing they would make some effort to fix it. Then they offered to sell me a reconditioned one for just about full price if i would give mine back, so they could recondition it and sell it some other sucker.

Do not buy.

I got the Vizio E550i-A0 this week after purchasing on Thanksgiving day. I thought it was a great deal for $479 (+CA tax and $5 enviornment fee).

Skip first paragraph if you don't want to hear about how unsatisfied I am with Delivery.
First I want to say that I am a little upset at Amazon and there Delivery partner in my area CEVA. I have prime and I had set up a delivery for Saturday morning. Friday night I receive a call from CEVA telling me that the TV hadn't arrived and that it would arrive on monday night and shipped out on tuesday. I am not sure if it was AMAZON's fault (their page showed item as delivered to CEVA) or CEVA's fault, but that took away the convinience of schedule delivery promoted by AMAZON Prime. Ok, just wanted to mention that. Now on to TV.

Took TV out of Box and I loved how it really had a thin Bezel. Vizio promotes this and even though it isn't extremelly flat all around, the thin bezel makes the screen look bigger than a 55". Package came with screws screwdirver to install the included stand. It wasn't difficult but you might need help lifting TV and resting it on its screen side to install the stand.

Setting the TV took around 10 min. Took me around that time because I wrote my info to register the TV with VIZIO, and this takes a little while going through letters and numbers with the remote.

HDMI and other video inputs are on the back and on the side. I really love the side inputs because they help delete clotter from the back if you're putting next to a wall.

The picture did look good but it was not what I expected (and have seen 120hz) do. VIZIO promotes this TV as a 120hz Effective refresh rate and it actually acts more like a 60hz.

Like many of the recent reviews, I got this on Black Friday for a significant discount. The Quality: Even though this is not a true 120hz, the quality of it is phenomenal! The size: The TV isn't fat nor super slim but right in the middle. The sound: It is above average compared to the my other HDTVs in my opinion but I still use surround sound for it. Here are the steps to hook up your surround sound:
1. Vizio > Audio > TV Speakers: Click Off
2. Vizio > Audio > Digital Audio Out: Click PCM or your choice
3. Vizio > System > CEC > CEC Function > Click Enable
4. Vizio > System > CEC > System Audio Control > Click On
5. Vizio > System > CEC > Device Discovery > Your AV Device (Surround Sound Audio Receiver)

The only CON I can think of is the remote. Many reviews here for the Vizio E550i-A0 but many do not discuss about the remote. The remote does not come with a keyboard or a slide out keyboard like other smart Vizio TVs, though I already knew that. However, the remote is GARBAGE which makes me want to take -1 star away from this HDTV. The lag is so significant it irritates me. One good example is that it takes a good 2-3 seconds to even turn the volume down or up one notch and etc. Compared to my other HDTVs, they barely take a millisecond to change a channel, volume, inputs, and etc. I do not know if it is the remote or something else. Does anyone know any fixes to this or does this effect you too? I will be forever in your debt if you solve this issue.

I was excited to upgrade to this LED from a 42" LCD. We mainly use it for movies and gaming
This TV has a great picture, especially with games. With blurays, the picture is pretty sharp,however there was some motion blur in there. Especially darker/indoor scenes so I would say it's not a true 120hz. One downside is viewing angles. To get a superb picture/color, you must be in front of it. I have chair offside in living room & you can see the picture well but the colors are completely off.
Another reason I got the smart TV is because smart TV's have usb media playback. Every file I tried to play would play halfway through, regardless of length, and stop and return to media menu. Then press play again, with no option to play from previous point.
Vizio customer service was great, they offered to ship a new remote to try, but still the same issue after that.
I contacted Amazon & their customer service is awesome. Due to TV acting up & being out of stock of these vizio models (55 & 60), they have shipped the TV of my choice.
This time around, I chose a samsung smart TV, as that model was in stock & had stellar reviews.
I recommend Amazon because of their high customer satisfaction
