I am an average consumer, I don't know everything about everything, and I rely fairly heavily on reviews when I buy online. As a measure of my "consumer-ness" when it comes to buying a new tv, I had to look up what 1080p and 120hz actually meant. I upgraded from a 200lb 37" tube tv, so this was a pretty big upgrade for me. My wife and I got the tv home and mounted it over our fireplace, connected the HD cable (not included), plugged in the power cord, and we were watching HD tv in a matter of moments. The picture is great, and I'm completely satisfied with this purchase. We've only had the TV for about 3 weeks, so this is by no means a long-term review, but to date this tv has been perfect. Some people we're negative about the sounds quality, but for a tv the sound gets plenty loud. I recognize that I bought a tv, and not a surround sound system, so the fact that it does not have 3D sound and banging bass is not a shock to me. I highly recommend this tv to anyone in the market, and this comes from an average, everyday guy.

I bought my 55" tv about a week ago. All I can say is WOW!! This tv has a crystal clear picture when you are using a HD Cable Box with HDMI cable. It took some time to get used to because the picture is SOOOO clear compared to my 720p Sanyo I just replaced. You can literally see the sweat dripping off people with this HD Crystal Clear quality picture. Also now that I have this 1080p tv, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER STANDARD DVD AGAIN!! Watching Blu Ray movies on this TV is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I have never been a big move fan, but now I come home from work everyday since last Wednesday and watch movies because of the picture quailty. Now the sound is not that bad compared to what the others are saying on here. But I did purchase a Sony Home Theater System which I connected with an optical cable. So my sound quality is amazing as well now. I highly recommend this TV to anyone who is looking for a large screen tv for a small price... Worth every dime!!!

A former Samsung supporter, I am now a Vizio supporter. After really looking at the available models and reading online reviews here, I jumped in and got this model. I have no regrets, picture is fantastic, price was very reasonable for a 55" and set-up was very painless. My only caution to a prospective buyer is, if you don't have this hooked up to a sound system, preferably a surround sound, you WILL be upset at the sound quality. Read other reviews, I'm not alone in my criticism. Sometimes the sound will be fine, other times you will need to crank up the volume to 50+ to be able to hear it, particularly if you are watching a movie that has a quiet conversation on it. On my previous tv, I would reserve using my surroundsound for movies, now it's almost a necessity. So if you have a surround sound, by all means get this tv, you'll be happy. But if you don't, you have been warned! C'mon Vizio, you have a great TV, let's get the sound bugs worked out.

We changed from a Hitatchi 57" HD projection to this tv. The Hitatchi was great but we wanted something with a smaller foot print. We looked for a while and did a lot of comparison. Feature for dollar led us to this great tv. We watch a lot of movies on dvd and blu ray. The picture is amazing! The sound is very good too. We usually run audio through surround sound, but for normal tv veiwing sound is good. It has a lot of pre-programmed picture customization settings to choose from and a couple of audio options. Just select what settings you like, program the remote to control everything and enjoy! With a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 it is crystal clear in all light situations. If you are looking for a great all around tv in this size range, this is the one to get!

So many options on this tv make a big difference!!! I just went from a 32" crt tv to this beast and didn't realize what I was missing. Probably one of the best features for myself is that it is HD Ready ... not HD Capable, but READY!! We didn't need an HD receiver to have to view HD channels...that alone saves us about $15 a month. The stand is a lot more sturdy than I had expected, with a 2 and a 3 year old running around here we needed to make sure that this thing wasn't going to just flip over from all of the mini "stampedes" we have around here. Looks great with sports since it is a 120hz and has the TruMotion options on it. Thought of getting the Element 55", but compared the reviews and realized that the extra $200 would save me some headaches later on.

The is is the best TV I have ever bought. I researched for a few months to find the best bang for my buck and WOW did I get it!!! The picture quality is like you are watching a live taping of the show. I stepped up from a 32' LG, and I will never turn back. We got it Feb 10th 2011. I agree with the people that talk about the sound quality, but I use my surround sound most of the time anyway so it's ok. I've owned almost every major brand of TV, and it's Vizio from here on out. The quality to price ratio is off the chart compared to other brands. We are about to add on another bedroom and den, so I will be purchasing another one for the den. My verdict for anyone reading this is to stop looking and just get this TV, you will NOT be dissappointed!!!

This is the simplist set up, I have ever experienced with an HDTV. I have owned plasmas and other LCD's but the engineers who came up with this design did a an amazing job. From unboxing to complete set up in minutes. The box was very large but it was easy to remove. That alone was impressive. The box filled the back of my truck nicely. And more internal packaging than any others. Once it was unboxed and placed on my stand it was basicly plug and play. I would suggest a very large stand for this set. Pluged in the power supply, hocked up my HDMI cables, and then placed the batteries that were supplied into the remote. A few minutes going through the set up menu and done. I would also suggest using all HDMI cables and no AV cables. The only thing extra, I purchased was a 2 year extended warrenty. I got an amazing sale price on this set as well. I would suggest to any one buying any flat screen to purchase a protection plan. When these sets start having issues it's usually the screen. And the screen will cost more to repair or replace then buying a new one. This HDTV is a piece of art. The remote on this set is also a piece of art. The remote is universal and works great with my sat. system. Xbox 360 games are bar none on this set. The audio is truly amazing. Xbox Live is (ya you guessed it) amazing! Pros: Well engineered. A piece of art to look at on or off. Ease of set up. Amazing visual and audio. Great price! Cons: None. Wish list: One more HDMI port. Overall: 5 stars

Love it. Set up took 1 minute. Picture quality even for 480 is amazing. With the full 1080p it appears more like a window than a tv. It looks like the people are just standing on the other side that's how life like the picture is. Sound is pretty good too. Haven't gotten the house quiet enough to really hear it but overall it is decent. I will be hooking up a home theatre system so I won't use the tv sound very often. The size is also perfect. I can walk about 25 feet away from the tv and still be amazed by the picture. If you are budget minded and looking for a great tv this is it.

I don't know all the technical issues of an LCD v. LED, but my husband and I went to the store and the 55" LCD and LED were side by side. The only difference we could tell is that the LED is a bit thinner from front to back. We are very pleased with our new tv and I can't believe the difference in picture quality. Thanks Wal-Mart for offering a great product at a great price!

Firts off you can not beat the value. A 55 inch tv under $1000. The picture quality is superb if you are judging by the store display dont,get it home and set up the picture yourself it becomes 10x better.I have owned several other flat screens and never turned the volume up on the tv always used surround sound do to really poor sound.The sound that this tv gives you is nothing short of AMAZING best sounding tv I have heard in years.And if you are a gaming fan as I am this tv is exceptional for gaming.
