Overall this is an good tv and good value, just don't get the Smart upgrade. I like this tv and would buy it again but without the smart part. where it falls short is the 'smart' part. Smart enough to know if you have a wired or wireless inet connection. the built in apps are not modifiable, you can't add/remove apps, even the ones that don't work or 'not yet released'. only a few are useful, netflix, youtube, webvideo, Pandora is not included as the marketing material shows. Additionally, the neat remote with the slide out keyboard is not included nor have i discovered a way to purchase one. For the home media buffs - does not connect to lan [connects only for inet access], will not connect to any shared network media resource i.e, media server, nas, mac or windows. USB port is for a stick not to exceed 16gb, anything over 16GB will kill the flash or hard drive. copy pictures, music & video to a flash drive and play it that way. VIZIO: forgo the USB and use that space for local ethernet port.

I saw this same TV for $629 on another site but it was refurbished and with shipping and tax the price was nearly $700. So I searched around and saw that WalMart had the same TV, new, for $698. Ordered it at 10am and it was ready for pickup in store at 2pm. Some of the reviews I read were critical of the wireless feature but I had no problems. The TV was easy to set up. I had it connected to my DVR/Cable Box, BluRay, and DVD/Sound System in under 15 minutes. Again, the wireless set up required little effort on my part. That night I was streaming Netflix on the TV. I also use Amazon which was simple to set up. A little disappointed that HBO GO is not one of the streaming sources. Picture is much better than than 37" Phillips TV that I replaced. Sporting events are amazing on this TV -- Fenway Park looks incredible in HD on a 55" screen. I have had this TV for about three weeks now and I am very happy with this purchase. Great value for all the features.

TV picture quality and sound are perfect! 100 % satisfied with that. Only disappointment is the fact that the remote control does NOT have the keyboard on back,(for using some of the SMART features) as I had expected. I am certain I saw that advertised and promoted on several websites - even VISIO website. Well- not on this model. You must pull up a virtual alphabet on the screen, and pick your way thru that spelling process to set up passwords, accounts etc. It's not a huge problem, but a disappointment to me, non the less. I guess the next step-up model (the slimmer one) has it?? But that cost about $200 more and I have read that the sound quality is not as good on the very slim TV's because the speakers are sacrificed for space. (?) Overall, If I had it to do all overagain I would still choose this one. If YOU have a couple hundred more dollars I would say get the one with the other remote. By the way, mine does not hang on wall so I don't care about slim profile.

I remember a couple of years ago, the Vizio product's appeared second rate. I was really impressed as I was looking at the latest crop in that they were delivering picture quality that compare to top brands like Samsung and SONY. In addition, there are substantially better value. The firs unit that I purchased turned out to be a repackaged demo unit with no base and bolts hanging out of the back. However, after returning that and getting a brand-new one, I was pleased to discover the almost flawless performance and quality of this unit. At this point, I really have no complaints. This unit is feature rich with Wi-Fi as well as direct Internet connection and a pretty good selection of applications. Picture and sound are both great. I guess if I have any complaints if that I generally need three separate remote controls to operate this 55 inch unit. If there is a way to configure the remote to work with Xfinity directly, I haven't found it. I also have Apple TV connected and I have to expect that that's going to require a separate remote. It's hard to go wrong with the $700 price tag. This is worth considering.

Did a lot of research on Tvs when our Mitsubishi 54' Mirror projected big screen HDTV died recently...wanted an internet smart Tv as we have Netflix and were using an xbox 360 to play it .. the xbox required a subscription to view Netflix on tv and it was having problems and no longer sent picture just sound to tv.... This Tv has freed us from our xbox subscription and is so much easier to use with Netflix.. one push of a button and that's it instant movies..no more fumbling with input changes and other remotes.. the picture quality is outstanding .. sound could be better but we were used to a tv with big speakers under it this just has small speakers built in but in general has good sound for everyday listening.. we have a surround sound system so not a big problem we gert our usual sound quality we are used to from those...Did purchase an extra remote off ebay with the qwerty keyboard on back for easier Netflix use but it was original Vizio equipment and ran about $16 never hurts to have an extra remote on hand...Great Tv for the money , makes the living room feel like a movie theater. Would definetly recommend

Just an Average TV with Average Features

Customer review by JoefromBensalem

The biggest problem with this TV is that it only recognized my Verizon FIOS as a 720p picture using HDMI. Watching sports was difficult at this size at 720. Background stuff is not sharp. Also, on low lit TV scenes when watching shows, there was green mudding up with the black. I even went online to find the recommended color settings, and still could not get the green out of the black. On bright scenes, or on solid colors, nice clear picture, but not for sports or darker scenes, as the input was only seeing 720 and not 1080. The apps are all tied into a Yahoo service and just average. I ended up returning the TV and bought an LG LA6900 for $1190 from Walmart, and this TV sees my HDMI for Verizon as 1080p. Much better TV, with more useful Smart features. I love this one and I love that Walmart lets you return sets even when ordered online with no hassle or fees. Whatever you buy, buy it from Walmart. There is a clear difference between the content and TV settings you see in a store showroom vs. what you see when you connect it to your home cable in a living room environment. You need the option to return it.

Wow! What a great HD TV! I went from a 32" 720p 60Hz HDTV to a 55" 1080p 120Hz HDTV, which is quite the upgrade! The picture quality is great! It's best to view from 5-7ft away. If you view close, you tend to see the pixels more; however, if you move back to 5-7ft, you will have a nice, bright picture! I kept the picture brightness as "retail" as it is the brightest! This TV caught my eye on display at Walmart because it was on the "retail" picture brightness setting. It was the most brightest out of all the TVs on the wall; therefore, I took one home! :) The audio is outstanding!! The SRS StudioSound HD is great! A+

Be patient when you put it on your network - it takes just long enough that you think something is wrong. The Smart TV features work well just not fast as you expect from this day of instant gratification. The sound is much better than I expected. Menu's are easy to navigate. I haven't done it yet but web talk has it that there is a way to tune the picture with results as good as high end tv's. Set up was easy. I did it all by myself with a damaged hand. Walmart personnel helped me find it and load it up. Very nice to me. They told me I have 90 days to return it if something goes wrong and a year factory warranty. I am a happy camper, so far.

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could afford such a nice TV. When we got it home we took it out of the box and I was just so thrilled that Wal-Mart made the price so reasonable that I actually have this beautiful television in my livingroom. The picture is so clear and every color pops out that if you didn't know better you would think you're looking in the neighbors window. I'm only 4' 11" tall and I weigh less than 90 pounds but I can move this by myself if I have to. I'm so happy and grateful. I never do these reviews but I had to add my 2 cents when it came to this television. Thanks Wal-Mart and your customer service department.

I was given the thumbs up to get a new HDTV after our Sony 55" projection tv gave out a week ago. Initially my search ended on the LG 55" 3D HDTV, but my wife mentioned that 3D made her feel queezy, and frankly I don't want to watch tv with glasses on my nose. So, I asked the store associate if he had any 55" LED's in stock. Initially, the Samsung and LG were the one's he mentioned (they were not on display). But the price tags came in at $1100+ and $930+ respectively. I pulled up the prices on walmart.com, and said that they sounded hefty based on my research. I ended up asking if there were any Vizio's in stock. He came back and said he had this one - just came in. The price was right and there were enough good reviews that I took the leap of faith (well sort of, I also purchased the 3yr svc plan @ $89.00) The base was easy enough to install on my padded dining room table. I also purchased the 40" soundbar with wireless subwoofer as the slimline profile made me think the speakers would not be sufficient. I didn't regret this decision after watching the trainwreck from The Fugitive. Great sound! Used variable output from the TV and disabled the factory speakers. Fam was asleep when I turned it back to fixed output as playing around. Whoa!!! Don't do this, it will make your ears bleed... sound was clear though. Back to the TV. My initial programming was coming from CBS on the Masters, and I was concerned about the milky picture. The cure to this is to change the Video to "Game" setting and adjust from there. Picture became crystal clear on 720 and 1080 broadcasts from DirecTV. Awesome for the price. Enjoy!
