We bought this on Memorial Day at a local store - price was a little cheaper than Amazon, plus no shipping cost, so we got a great deal. First off, the packaging for this TV is HUGE - the only way we could have put this in our van would have been to lay the third row seats down AND take out one of the 2nd row seats, as the box is too wide to fit in the aisle between them. Luckily we have a truck and had no problems fitting in it. If you plan to put this TV in a cabinet/entertainment center, you'd better buy a big one. Due to the shape of the frame, which includes the speakers on either side, this TV is wider than a typical 55" - it measures about 55 1/2" at its widest point, so is too wide for most cabinets that say they will fit a 55" TV. Wall mounting or mounting on an open table setup would be no problem. OK, enough about the size of this monster - you get the picture :)

Setup was a snap - got it out of the box, hooked up a Toshiba DVD recorder/VCR combo via HDMI and a standard def DirecTV DVR to the composite A/V (no HD DVR yet). On a HD signal, this TV has an incredible picture - bright image, great blacks (some TVs have problems with dark/night scenes, but this one handles them wonderfully). Standard-def images (480i) can be grainy, but that's simply a factor of size vs. resolution and is only really noticed if you're close to the screen. Viewing from across our family room (about 12' from tv to couch) is fine. We also connected an antenna to pull in over-the-air signals. The tuner is pretty good, and picked up all the UHF networks in our area, about 30 miles away. The local CBS affiliate broadcasts on a VHF frequency and we can't pick it up - but we can't get it on any of our TVs, so I can't say this tv is any better or worse in that regard.

We Purchased this television to replace a Vizio Plasma television and have been impressed by the BETTER PICTURE. I keep this television in a room with 6 recessed lights and 4 large windows producing tremendous glare and the picture clarity/brightness is still good. The remote and television operation is easy and intuitive. My DVD player works well on HDMI connection but I have issues with the composite AV connection creating a background humming noise when connected to our Directv receiver. Even after buying a new Composite cable, the sound returned but corrected when I attached my Directv to the antenna/DTV connector instead. I cannot figure out if the problem is with the television or the cables or the Directv receiver (it is not HD). I suspect that if I had a HD receiver and used a HDMI connection the problem would be solved.

My family primarily watches DVD and television, so I cannot speak for Blu Ray or HDTV function. I can say, though, that digital standard television looks great off the satellite and DVD is wonderful.

I notice there is a speaker on the back of the television as well as speakers on each side. The television sound is ok and may be better if not mounted on wall (as mine is), but sounds a little muffled and much improved with a surround sound system.

The internet connected well, but I have not tested Netflix or any other streaming yet, since I have no accounts and have not ever used them. I will add this evaluation after I try them out.

We have streamed using Netflix. It connects within 2 minutes. Every so often the wireless streaming has some pauses, but my internet connection and older router are contributing to the problem. Overall, we are pleased with how easy the television was to set up.

I've been a fan of Vizio for years now and this TV has reinforced my belief that Vizio is the best TV for your money. I actually believe that Vizio produces some of the best televisions regardless of price.

I've had this particular model for over a week now and can tell you the picture and audio are phenomenal. The standard def picture on this television blows away the quality of my last 47in Vizio. That was the only draw back with Vizio that I've had in the past (the standard def picture quality).

Everything on this model is easy to setup, including Wi-fi. The remote was a great idea and well designed and the apps run smoothly. I expected them to startup and react somewhat slowly while I was watching programs but the apps will run without any hang-ups. The apps were a pleasant plus to this already amazing television.

Bottom line: The picture is amazing with settings that make it easy to customize the picture. The audio is outstanding with great built-in features that aren't featured on most other TV models. All of this with a price that can't be beat.

If you buy it, you will not be disappointed or end up second guessing your choice.

We Purchased this television to replace a 55" projection TV that finally quit. This television is in a room with several wall lamps and although there is some glare, after a few minutes you really no longer notice it, actually the tv it replaced was worse. The remote and television operation is easy. Our Sony Blue Ray works well on HDMI 2. We have 2 Wii's and have them connected to the COMPonent input and the AV input. We have our HD cable box connected to HDMI 1. The HD from the cable box is awsome!
Power consumption seems to be about 70 to 95 watts when on and reads next to nothing when in standby. Our 42" plasma uses about 330 watts, OUCH.

We bought this TV because after researching the PIP (picture in picture) options we thought this set would do PIP from AV and COMP at the same time. WRONG, the manual is wrong, you can do PIP using one digital and one analog only. I was disapointed with this, but I found an adapter for the wii that changes the output to HDMI, so that problem is solved. I have not found any TV that will do PIP for both my wii's at the same time.

My wife thought the audio was o.k., but I didn't like it, so I bought a Vizio sound bar ($90) and that problem is solved.

The internet connects very easily and Netflix on this set is great. We also have 2 Sony Blueray with internet, this set has more internet tcontent and options than my sony bluerays do.

We paid 1600 for this set from Costco and with Costco you get a 2 year warantee.
