  • Conclusion: My verdict is in. The M551D-A2R proves to be another fine example of why Vizio has become so popular amongst shoppers who care about both value and performance. Without a lot of tweaking, this TV's image quality is as good as, or even better than, several more expensive TVs that have crossed my path this year.

  • Conclusion: The Vizio M551D-A2R is a surprisingly stylish, affordable LED-backlit HDTV that sports tons of features, good picture quality, and out-of-the-box 3D for eight people.
  • Pros: Good all-around performance. Solid 3D. Generous feature set.
  • Cons: 3D shows crosstalk when viewed too close or off-axis. Dark scenes can look slightly muddy.

Vizio's M-Series TV is not just a pretty face

3 July 2013
  • Summary: The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price.
  • Pros: The Vizio M-Series M1d-A2R is an excellent value with great design and a snappy picture; it has excellent shadow detail, fairly deep black levels, and excellent processing; and its Smart TV access has been improved.
  • Cons: It doesn't have as deep a black level as a plasma; it suffers from a slight red push; it has a reflective screen; Yahoo apps aren't very slick; and the remote sensor isn't very responsive.
