Summary: tv constantly "locked up" and could not be turned off. Tech support blamed our home router and said the TV was having issues with internet connections and that we had to change our home router to prevent this... seems like something Vizio should have addressed before releasing the TV! 15 months after purchase, the TV completely died. Tech support was of no help to us. This is the second TV to die from Vizio just after the warranty ended. NEVER buying this brand again.
I really like this TV. It was an overall good buy for me.

Summary: Very Nice TV. Good picture quality and sound. The menu is very easy to work with. I also like the addition alternatives like web/Ethernet connection. yahoo, Netflix, and more. It gives you everything you need to keep up with media technology at your finger tips. Only down side is the VIZIO logo stays on 24/7, which creeps me out. And I don't know how much energy that feature alone eats up. But I assume very insignificant to little.
Summary: Needed a new TV since we were still using a projection TV and shopped around online for used ones at a decent price. So far there's nothing that I can say I dislike about the tv but I do love all of the option to hook up different types of inputs. For the price difference between the top end units and this one it was well worth it.
Summary: Was looking for a good 55" TV, but didn't want to spend a lot of money. Went with the E552VLE based on the reviews, and was not disappointed.. I ended up calibrating it based on online specs & was not disappointed. Would definitely recommend this product if you're looking for a good solid 55" and need to save money.
Summary: I Would recommend this if you are looking for a great picture quality. The down fall is there is only 1 place for RF to plug in if you are ready for all hdmi products it is great the is plenty of places to plug in but I had to buy a converter for $20 so that I could plug in video game system, cable and dvd player. This was packaged great and when it was delivered there were no problems it only took about 5 days to arrive.
Summary: this is a great starter HD Smart TV. It has all the features that you would expect in a smart tv except for DLNA support from other devices to the TV. The TV itself has a "media" app that will (very slowly and inconsistently) find other devices, like computers or mobile phones. Once found and browsed to your media content it may or may not actually play the media from other devices, but when it works it is great and a really neat feature.
Summary: I purchased this Vizio based on the Consumer Reports ratings which were very high for this product and it did not disappoint. It is a quality product, great picture, but as high tec as it is, the remote and messages are user friendly for the novice user. Highly recommend. It will not disappoint you.
