  • A. Another difference is that the analog audio out is a 3.5 mm cable. If you plan to route the audio thru an external receiver/amp and you don't have an optical audio input on your reciever you will need to get a a special Y cable that splits the single 3.5 mm jack into left and right channels. These are not expensive cables and you can get them at Radio Shack or Amazon if Walmart doesn't have them.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I absolutely love my new tv. I had previously purchased 1 other Vizio and had been given another as a gift, so I knew what to ecpect from this brand. They did not disappoint. Picture is beautiful as well as the sound. On screen set up was a breeze. I love the Netflix app now I don't have to connect via my computer. As of yet I have not utilized all features, bur look forward to it. I had some problems installing the base because it is a tight fit to insure stability but after swallowing my pride I called customer service who informed me I had to use force to get it in, it went right in and she even registered it for me.

Hello, Just wanna tell you guys I bought mine a year ago and works like brand new! When I bought the TV it was $998. I use it EVERYDAY for my computer monitor and Television. This tv is excellent If you rather save a grand than have "PERFECT QUALITY"... Obviously you would be skeptical over the price and the size of TV. The TV itself isnt super thin but it makes up for the sound that thinner tvs dont have, Also the tv lets off heat so it vents it out aswell.. I'm a gamer and watch Netflix and play xbox 360 on it and works and looks great!!! Battlefield 3, Modern Warefare 3, and Skyrim look AMAZING on this Tv. (I would highly recommend buying a HDMI cable before leaving the store). Not to mention once you can actually SEE what your shooting at haha. Your gaming experience will dramatically increase trust me. Best bang for the buck and I would recommend it even to my enemy. -Every product is different though, If you buy the TV and its broken or breaks take it back with receipt- Take care guys

Very happy with the 55" Vizio Flatscreen
5/2/2012

Customer review by waygoofy

by waygoofy

Purchased the 55" Vizio yesterday. It's so big it was tricky to unpack but was packaged well. I also bought a HDMI cable to go from cable box to TV. Once the base was intalled it took about 5 minutes to plug it in and go through the setup. The picture quality is amazing. My wife was abit shocked at it's size but is use to it already. We replaced a Sony rear projection that the screen was starting to darken on. Today, back to Walmart to get another HDMI cable for the Blueray - DVD player. Got that hooked up in a short period of time. It took about 15 minutes to get into Dirtect TV's website to program the Vizio into the Direct TV remote. The first code given worked for the remote. Only other remote needed now is the DVD player remote. THe factory warranty is only a year and on second thought I bought a 5 year warranty through Vizio. With my luck the TV would probably "Die" the day after the one year warranty ran out.

Best Value for this Size - Speakers in Front.
10/12/2012

Customer review by songkrai

5.0 stars 10/12/2012 by songkrai
by songkrai

This is a great TV. TV speakers are in the FRONT of TV. Sound quality is very good at any level. In fact I also purchased a Vizio soundbar and have not installed it yet. Most other brands of TV at this size have the speaker in the rear. A TV with speaker in the rear is a gamble as far as sound/listening goes. A rear facing speaker bounces the sound off of the rear wall. If you want an excellent TV with speakers in front then this is the one. Vizio is one of the few brands that still has sound speakers in the front facing you. A real advantage for better sound/listening. The picture quality is superb. This TV has a multiplicity of APPS. Almost mandatory for a TV today. Yes, one does have to pay a modest subscription for most. But well worth it if you like HULU or Netflix and others. If I were purchasing a TV at this size again, I would purchase this one. I have had this TV for a year now with zero issues. All in all a superb television.

Bad remote experience

Customer review by JMA8820

by JMA8820

This TV is awesome. Great picture and options. However the reason for this review is not to point out the obvious or rant and rave about what you can see in any store looking at this TV, but to warn people about an important part of the user experience with this TV that leaves me baffled. The remote is designed to control everything on this TV. It has dedicated buttons for the Netflix and other internet options. It looks like it will control your DVD player and also cable box. The problem is I have to push the buttons over and over and over, waving the remote all around the front of the TV from a distance of 6 feet away to over 20 feet away from the TV. It's like the sensor on the TV doesn’t recognize when you are PUSHING the buttons on the TV's remote control. Big let down, after spending about $1k for a new TV.

I did a lot of comparison shopping when looking for a Flat Screeen TV. The TV has an amazing picture. During the set up to connect to the Internet I was having problems entering my Router Password. The Vizio FAQ said that the router must be within 30ft of the TV. Mine are located on opposite sides of the house. I purchased a range extender and placed it half way between the office and familiy area. But still no luck in connecting. After speaking with Vizio and Verizon FIOS we finally were able to get the internet to connect. I have a Verizon router that runs WEP. The TV REQUIRES the router to run WPA. The Vizio rep said to contact my cable company and have them change the Router to run on WPA and to also open Ports 80 and 443. Once this was completed by the Cable Tech on their end, I had to clear the settings on the TV back to the Factory setting and then run through the set up again. When entering the new router WPA password I was able to connect to the internet and complete the setup. I returned the Range extender and saved myself $78. I also had to go through the Menu settings using the cable remote, go to settings, video settings and change the picture type from 720p to 1080p. Over all I love this TV and highly recommend it. My room is 19ft long and once I had the tv set-up the picture was so vivid, crisp and clear. I also realized that I could have done a 65" with no problem. FYI, look on the back of your router and it will tell you if your router runs WEP or WPA. The number listed next to it is your router password.

I bought this tv 9/01/2012. I got everthing all set up and then I discovered that the remote wasn't working. So I checked out the batteries with a volt meter and the voltage was good. I then called Vizeo customer support and the woman was very nice and helpful. She decided to send me a replacement remote for free which was great but there would be a 7-10 day waiting period for the replacement remote. I'm very impatient by nature so I decided to take the suspected non-working remote back to Walmart just to verify that was the problem. When I got there I explained myself the the Walmart associate and we tested the remote on the store demo tv and it worked. Now I know for sure that the remote sensor in the tv is bad so I had to go home, repack the tv, bring it back to the store and Walmart replaced it very quick. Aside from the inconveinance of buying the tv, setting it up, tearing it back down, bringing it back to the store, bringing the replacement tv back home, setting it back up. I'm very happy with this tv and all that it offers. I would recommend this model to everyone. I think it is acceptable that there will be problems time to time with new products. I would recommend that everyone should buy the extended warranty plan through Walmart for every product that is subjected to everyday use and for peace of mind. Vizeo customer support was great. I also use the Site to Store for items that Walmart dosen't have on the shelfs. I never have had any problems and you can just about order anything and pick it up at Walmart with no shipping charges. Do your homework, choose wisely but nine times out of ten Walmart has the best of the best or will get it for you.

Pros: This tv is wonderful, it was everything I was expecting for an awesome price. Very attractive edging, great sound, great picture. Cons...?: The lag that people were talking about does exist, however it is not a flaw of the television and quite simple to fix. Go to settings and select game mode, it will say it is on but you must select it to turn it on, and it only lags for video games like Call of Duty on Xbox 360. The only downer is that you have to turn game mode on every time you play those types of games. I don't think it's really a con, unless you're lazy.

I normally purchase Plasma but, after my last one failed I decide to go with a LCD. runs alot cooler, picture is viewable from all angles (this was a great concern). Picture is beautiful, has a built in WiFi which is cool but time consuming because u do not have a keyboard to use. You have to type in the letters one at a time via the remote and a keypad on screen. I havent checked yet but if I can add a wireless keyboard to it I would use the WiFi capabilities more often. Other than that one issue, you cannot beat this TV.
