By Ted Kurkowski on June 21, 2012
I was looking for a very large screen TV with a good picture but without bells and whistles I won't use (especially the doomed current 3D technology). This 55" Vizio fills that bill at a very good price. Its picture is excellent particularly after you calibrate it and you do, of course, calibrate your TVs, don't you? (I recommend the Disney World of Wonder BluRay calibration disk for that - it doesn't take long, makes a big difference, and is easier to use than the other calibration disks I've tried.) On HD this TV is like the saying goes: looking at the world through a window. The sound is better than most flat screen TVs but none are great because their thin bezels, while attractive, don't allow room for decent speakers. I use the Yamaha YSP-2200 soundbar (see my review of it). For the price the picture quality is excellent.

It gets 4 stars instead of 5, because it has a slow processor so when you change to a different screen resolution it hesitates while it thinks about how to display it. This slows down channel surfing from Low-def to Hi-def and back. I had a Toshiba 46" that was better at this (although the Toshiba has its own foibles like not really allowing you to turn the internal speakers off).

Still, all in all it's hard to beat this TV for the price.

I have had this TV for the last week and it is great. It is not the thinnest TV and there is an occasional skip in the image, but overall I am very happy. I have had 4 or 5 people look at it and they all raved about the picture quality. It mounted very easy to the wall and has two HDMI ports in the back and two on the side which makes it easy to hide the cables that you want and have quick access for temporary devices, too. The set up was VERY easy. The set walks you through most of the settings. It has quick buttons on the remote for Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Vudu. I do not think that you can beat this TV for the price.

I'm not one for specsmanship. If I was, I'd probably buy another product. I am however quite impressed with this TV. For a while I thought that LED backlighting was the only way to go, and it certainly has its advantages from a lifetime and power consumption point of view. But you really can't beat a good old LCD/CCFL display for even brightness, and absolutely wonderful off-angle viewing. Try this experiment yourself -- go to your neighborhood Walmart, Sams Club, or what have you and stand way off to the side of all of the sets and you'll see what I mean. The best sets from this perspective (no news) are the plasma displays, but they have a LOAD of problems (bad overall brightness, burn in, power usage, heat). The next best are the old standard LCD/CCFL units. And they're getting really cheap nowadays, with everyone getting wooed by the ultra-thin LED displays. Honestly I could care less how thick my TV is, within reason. From the front, where I'm sitting, the difference is moot. Really, 1 inch thick versus 6 inches. Big deal!

So, moving on, about this set. OK, it weighs a TON, but once it's in place, again, who cares. Then the magic begins. The picture is to DIE FOR. Vivid colors, really good contrast in spite of what the "experts" say. And the smoothing action with 120 hz is truly incredible. Makes everything look better. EVERYTHING!

It connected with my WIFI in a heartbeat, with no problems, it has built in Netflix, which I love, and best of all it has an easy to use ANALOG audio output jack on the back that I use with a old set of really great computer speakers from Boston Acoustics. Cost me all of 50 bucks, and it kicks butt compared with the multi-hundred-dollar speakers you find now.

This T.V. was very easy to set up, and Without any adjustments (except passcode) for my Router. I did not have any other adjustments. The picture was first rate. I say this is a great buy for anyone that
wants a 55" at a great price. I highly recommend this HDTV. Bill

I basically went with this TV based on the latest Consumer Reports reviews. I went with the lowest price "Best Buy" and so far have been very pleased and everything works great.

It is easy to set up and the picture on default settings is excellent. I also find the speaker sound to be better than most TVs. This might be due to the fact that the TV is a bit thicker so they might have had more room to put in a decent sound system.

I have used it with the Wi-Fi connection and wired ethernet connection from my router and both work flawlessly. The network connections set up easily. The apps load fairly quickly and are easy to navigate.

The side HDMI input is nice as this is where I hookup my laptop. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse so I can just sit in the living room and surf the internet on the TV. This TV doesn't include a built in browser and I would rather just use my laptop anyway where I am free to use any browser that I wish.

I haven't used the USB inputs since I can just hookup the laptop with HDMI and access any media this way.

The remote is easy to use although the buttons are on the smaller side. There is no backlight or keyboard which some people might complain about. Entering text can take awhile when performing tasks such as inputting WiFi passwords. But honestly you won't need to enter text very often anyways.

The screen has a very wide viewing angle and is comfortable from most viewing positions.

If you are looking for a great LCD TV and don't care about 3D technology, this is a solid choice. I ended up buying this TV from the WalMart site as it came with a free wall mount for the same price and they have a 90 return policy as well. Amazon started charging tax to California residents so my preference to Amazon just went out the window.
