Showing 1-10 of 11
Truly awesome! Great value for the money, even if you paid full price!
9 July 2012
Summary: My wife and I saw this model at the store and fell in love with it. If they had had one in stock too sell, we would have bought it the and there. Not being the case, I took the opportunity to do some research on it and found some great deals on eBay. We bid on several before winning the bid at an outrageously good price. I've found nothing to not like about Vizio LED 3D internet ready. This tv has just blown us away, and everyone else who has seen it, also.
Summary: Never owned a big 3d TV and I'm happy this is my 1st only had it a couple days and played NBA2k12 in 3d and was just simply blown away. Got it at Costco on sale for $1100 so for the price and comparing to some other models it was a no brainer, sales person was like I could sell you a more expensive T.V but if he had the money he would grab it too.
Pros: 3d, internet apps, multiple HDMI ports, easy set-up great overall picture and price.
Cons: Does get a little blurry when action speeds up but it's hardly noticeable, speakers could be better but if you don't own a stereo to hook up to this you should not be looking for a T.V. Wish it had internet browser but laptop connects fine.
Amazing performance in 2D and 3D, worth twice it's price.

Summary: This is a powerhouse unit, which offers exception 2D and 3D performance. First thing - the 3D is passive, but it is universally excellent. The effect causes no eye strain whatsoever, I can attest to that after hours and hours of 3D video game play, no eye strain at all. The image is also very bright with incredible contrast, in 2D and in 3D. Color accuracy is exceptional, this makes one heck of a great computer monitor. 3D works with PS3 and Blu-Ray right out of the box.
Summary: Great TV with 3D and input options at an awesome price, I got this product because of the price and options you get with 3D. I own a Vizio 47" not 3D and it is a great tv but this 55" clearly Beats it with its 240ghz.
Summary: Great TV but the 3D thing is a bit of a let down. Grant it I'm trying to use the 3D through an Xbox 360 which isn't a "3D ready device" per say but it does have games with 3D abilities on them. I just wish that you could turn on the 3D without having the TV detect it from an external device.
Pros: Great picture quality, great sound, and the Vizio Internet Apps work great.
Summary: I bought this TV at the end of December - the unit was shipped to the retailer December 14th and I picked it up on December 29th. The picture is fantastic, Vizio apps were a nice added touch, the internet hooked right up . . . and then I hooked my HDMI cable box up to it.
Pros: The picture quality is good, it could be a fantastic rival to Samsung with a timeless design
Cons: Vizio is an impossible company to navigate through when you have a problem, and this TV has a critical problem.
Nice TV but has some real problems with "firmware"
12 January 2012
Summary: I am not an avid TV review specialist. More like a basic consummer. Purchased this TV after looking at different reviews including CNET that gave a 'very good' average. Purchased for under $1,400.00 (Costco). Unpacked and found easy to assemble although surprised how small/short the stand fixing screws are.
Pros: Excellent value, Good picture, full feature, high written specification.
Cons: Slow startup, poor sound, appears not 100% feature/firmware tested
