Summary: This is my 3rd Vizio in last 2 months and I am going to return it today. Not sure if I was just plain unlucky or is it bad QC and product quality of Vizio. I bought this last one as new from a Walmart store. On two occasions this TV started making a loud whistling sound while it was on, it went into a hang state with no sound at all after then, with no functions on tv working.
Summary: You get what you pay for,picture is beautiful until someone moves on the t.v screen,whatever part moves on screen becomes fuzzy then back to clear. There is no "smooth picture" setting. Very sad, had to turn the t.v.
Summary: The packing was terrible. Plain brown box with the white woven "protective" cover lying in a pile on the bottom -- no tape, etc., holding it in place. Nothing showing which end of the box was up so it was delivered on its side. The corner protectors didn't look all that protective but there was no damage to the TV itself. The base was missing some screws that I had to go to a hardware store to get (I called Vizio for the sizes and numbers). A pain, but not a hardship.
Summary: We were a bit hesitant to purchase as we were looking at all brands except Vizio. We are extremely happy we purchased E5501-AO. The picture quality is top notch along with good sound as compared to other LEDs. So far the TV is performing beyond expectations! We would not hesitate to purchase this again.
Summary: This is the 4th Vizio TV we have purchased. We have a 22 inch in the office which I use as a second monitor for my laptop, We had a 37in in our master bedroom which we gave to my father in law when we got this TV to replace the 42in we had in our living room. The 42in is now in our bedroom. I haven't had a single problem with any of our Vizio TV's and I see no reason to pay several hundred dollars more for another brand that will do just as well.
Summary: I was afraid that the 55" was going to be too big, but i LOVE the size and am so happy i went with vizio as well. the picture quality is really great. I love the shortcut buttons (amazon,netflix,mgo). it really makes it a great experiance. The sound on it is pretty good..not enough for me so i bought a sound bar and it is bumpin'. The price was also very attractive too. i got the 3 year warrenty for $89, and they will make home visits for repairs!
