  • A. It's wireless from the factory and will show you all of the available wireless networks (including your neighbors) during setup. Get set to enter the ridiculously long program key if you have a secure router (recommended so your neighbors don't poach your internet). Don't know your ID and password? -ask your ISP if you got your router from them.

This is my first big purchase of a tv. Very affordable. To program and set up the TV has the instructions programmed into the TV so no more need for books. I would recommend this Brand of TV to my friends and family.

Great Picture... Great Features... Easy Set up! I finally joined the New Millennium and bought a REAL TV. I know that comparing this TV to my 52" RCA Rear Projection 1080i isn't exactly a fair comparison but the RCA really did have a pretty good picture. The brightness, sharpness and depth of the Vizio LCD though is another world. Very sharp and colorful. We don't have a huge living room and my wife's "spot" is at about a 45 degree angel to the screen. The clarity of the picture from that angle is head and shoulders above the RCA. We also have a large window in the room that lets in a lot of light that caused glare on the old TV...but not on this one! I haven't really played with the internet apps yet but the TV found my wireless easily and quickly. I only got the set yesterday (08/07/2011) so I can't speak to its reliability at this point but time will tell. It seem's hard for me to believe that you can get this much technology and performance for this little money... But I'm glad I did!...

When my last HD set went, I did a lot of research and ended up going with this Vizio set and have been very pleased. Can't beat the price for a 1080p unit and the picture quality is truly excellent on this unit. I am sure there are other units that are better, even Vizio has higher priced models, but I can't imagine that there would be a large enough difference to warrant paying a much higher price. Even 1080p is surpassing the resolution that many networks broadcast in, so I can't see spending much more. Great set, get one before they come to their senses. I gave the audio 3 out of 5 because they sounded ok, but admittedly I don't use the TV's speakers and comparing them to a home theater system is not a fair comparison. This is an LCD set not LED. LED is newer but if you read up on those two technologies it is hard to justify the huge price gap between the two. Pros: Great price for this size Outstanding picture quality (compared to the Samsung DLP it replaced) Performs well in brightly lit rooms during the day Tells you resolution being displayed for each source Cons: Hard to find any

This T.V. was a gift to my parents and they could not be happier. Set-up was very easy. Everything from unboxing, attaching the stand, power cord, HDMI to the cable box, HDMI to the DVD player and wifi took all but ten minutes. We were surfing all the HD channels within minutes and also tried out netflix. This T.V. is Loaded, Beautiful, and has Incredible picture and sound. Since it was a gift, I also added the additional 3 year warranty on top of the 1 year manufacturers warranty and a good surge protector all for just over a grand. I have a 61 inch Samsung 1080P DLP T.V. and this Vizio blows it out of the water both in picture quality and features. I would highly recommend this T.V. to anyone. I'm thinking about getting myself one as well for my house as soon as I sell my Samsung. As a matter of fact, I already purchased the Vizio 42" for my room and the T.V. is equally as amazing as this 55" but smaller. Don't hesitate and pass up on this AWESOME T.V., You will NOT be disappointed!

I purchased this TV 2 days ago on Walmart.com for $1,049.00. I opted for in-store pick up the same day. This was a great option, as I didn't have to wait for delivery. The box is HUGE. Do not expect to pick this up in the family sedan or a small SUV. It took the bed of my full size pickup to cart it home. Setting this TV up was a breeze. The on screen menu was self-explanatory and walked me right through the set up. Connecting to my wireless router was just as easy. And connecting to Netflix was "so simple a caveman could do it". (Sorry -- but it was just that easy!) I have yet to watch a Blu-ray on it, but the picture quality so far has met or exceeded my expectations. Cable TV broadcast vary depending on the signal from the particular cable channel, but most HD channels project a superb image through this set. Sound quality is just fine. At least it meets or exceeds my expectations. This TV is replacing my Sharp Aquos 46" TV, which I moved to my master bedroom. The sound on this Visio is better than the Aquos and the picture quality seems to be just a good. I would highly recommend. Considering the features, I don't think you can go wrong at this price point. I'm loving it!!

I just bought this tv yesterday so I can't speak for its reliability yet, but I am very pleased with the features so far. I use Time Warner digital cable, so it took a little while to set up and get the true HD picture format between all of the settings in the tv, and the settings in the TW box. I had no problem pairing the TW remote with this tv for the basic volume/mute/pwr functions. The picture once setup correctly is absolutely amazing for this price point. Although I noticed a VERY SLIGHT amount of ghosting during sporting events etc. I am very picky about this issue, but noone else seems to notice it. It is not enough to bother me, and that says alot. The boot up time is a tad slow at 19 seconds, but does not seem unreasonable considering the size of the screen. Thats alot of viewing pleasure that needs to turn on! My old Sharp tube tv took 12 seconds to warm up and display. Overall this is an exceptional value, for a very good size screen. Highly recommend! I bought an RCA surround sound system (also from Wal-Mart), and there is no comparison between the surround sound and the tv set speakers. If you have a room capable of a 5.1 setup I would highly recommend doing so.

To make a long story short, I bought this TV because of my wife. I was looking to buy my son a flatscreen for his birthday. I was looking for a 32" Vizio, because we have a 46" Vizio in the living room. While shopping, my wife suggested swapping out TV's, moving the living room TV to the bedroom and moving the 42" Phillips flatscreen to our son's room and going larger for the living room. Being a man, I jumped at the idea, lol. This TV is amazing! from unloading it from the truck, it only took me 20 min to have it hooked up to our surround sound, cable HDMI and PS3 HDMI. As soon as I turned it on, it found my wireless network and connected, once I entered my password, with the wireless keyboard that I had also bought. The picture if flawless and my wife can watch TV at the same time she is searching the internet, crazy! Netflix & Hulu work perfect. Sound on just the TV could be better, but if you run surround sound, no biggie. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a bigger TV at a great price.

I just recently purchased this Vizio 55" TV and I have to say so far I love it! The picture quality is fantastic! The set up was easy. The only slight problem I experienced was the base is a bit tricky to get on and it attaches only with 4 thumb screws..No tools required. Other than that set up was a breeze and as soon as it was set up I was able to start enjoying beautiful HD programming. There is a simple first time wireless setup that will need to be completed but you're walked through step by step. I really like that this TV came with pre installed internet apps. It's nice to stream netflix and pandora straight to the set. I was also pleasantly surprised by the sound of this set I was prepared to buy a sound bar or a surround sound system. However after hooking this set up I really don't see the need for one. All in all even though it's only been a couple of days with this set I am very impressed and can't wait to watch the Super Bowl on it!

This is one of the best tv I have owned in years, the quality compare and even beats the more expensive brands. This tv will give Samsung, Toshiba and Sony a run for their money. The picture is the best, it almost feels like youre in the video, blacks and whites are awesome. As for sound ive seen some negative things posted but I can say they are wrong, the sound is so amazing and sounds like if I have surround sound, it has enough bass and the tv goes really really loud. I have had Lg and Samsung tvs and they dont compare to the sound quality or picture quality. Remember you have to mess with the tv settings when you set it up to get the best picture, so many people just unbox it and dont adjust the setting and end up giving the tv a bad review. The apps are awesome. Its fun to go back and watch old movies because this tv shows so much detail. I highly recommend this tv and I will swear by Vizio from now on, if I could I wouldve given it 10 stars.
