I have a history with Vizio TVs. I saw my first one in a Sears store in 2006, and purchased it based on a side-by-side comparison with three other popular brands. That was a 37" model, and we just replaced it with this E552VLE. (The 5 1/2 year old 37" set, still in perfect condition, is being passed along to my daughter and her new husband). In addition, I have purchased two other Vizios in recent years, a 32" and a 26". All three have been absolutely perfect performers. So when we started shopping for a bigger set, my wife and I were naturally drawn to the Vizio models at Walmart. We looked carefully at the other larger screen brands, and once again, decided to go with this Vizio model. Knowing the reputation Walmart has for exchanging products, we didn't worry about the purchase or what to do if we encountered any issues. Frankly, we never expected to have any, based on our experiences with this brand in the past. All I can say is that the E552VLE has really exceeded our expectations. The HD image from all sources is spectacular, actually eye-popping in some cases. I don't think you really appreciate the great resolution of high def until you have a large-screen unit like this. The setup was very easy. I connected to three sources, a DirecTV HD receiver, a Samsung Blu-Ray player and a Wii game console. The Wii only provides an SD (480i) Image, so you can expand the image using the TV's Wide remote button to provide a full-screen image of your games. With the satellite receiver and blu-ray, the image size and resolutions are all detected automatically. I connected to the Internet using an Ethernet cable into a wireless repeater router set right behind the TV. The network detection was automatic, and I was able to immediately connect to the streaming apps, which include Amazon and Netflix. I pulled down a movie from Netflix and the image was in perfect high definition. (One thing users should be aware of using streaming apps: the first couple of moments of streaming content usually show up on screen in standard definition, as the device buffers the data streaming from the source. I've also experienced this with Roku streaming media devices. Once the stream gets rolling, the HD picture is outstanding). The color contrast and movement in images if really excellent, far better then I imagined. Blacks are deep and colors are rendered well across the spectrum, both for warmth and brightness. There are pre-set video modes for various situations (movies, sports, etc), but I haven't looked at them as the default setup is very satisfactory. I've noticed that some have complained about the quality of the sound reproduction of this and other big screen models. Frankly, I don't hear any issues with the sound out of the box. I'm not trying to fill a big room with sound, but even pushed 1/3 up the volume scale, the sound is full and vibrant. I will eventually reconnect my home theater speakers, but unless you're filling a really large room, you should have no issues with the sound as is. My only grips is with the interface of the Amazon streaming app. Unlike the one on my Roku, you get a very limited set of selections on screen, though you can search their offerings pretty easily. In conclusion, you probably read mixed reviews of Vizio products when compared to higher priced TVs by other manufacturers. I tend to prefer to let my eyes tell me what I like. All I can say that, if you are looking for a large LCD set with a remarkably clear image, lots of features and a price that won't bankrupt you, you cannot go wrong with this Vizio model. If you must have LED technology, 3-D and a "name" on the front panel, go elsewhere. (You can get Vizio models with those features, as well). But you won't go wrong with this E552VLE.

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.

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.

  • 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.
