Summary: The screen accumulates dirt on the inside which cannot be cleaned. I have contacted Vizio and they are not interested and stated bluntly that it is out of warranty and they will do nothing. They state that it cannot be cleaned because it must be disassembled to clean the inside of the screen. We have used this set since we received it and as a television it works.
Summary: This is a best value TV. I viewed about 10 big screens side by side. This was 3rd best picture but at almost half the price of the two with a better picture. Only change I would make is I would have opted for the internet connect upgrade for about $20 more.
Summary: I have never submitted a review to date but in this case I decided to do one. I have to admit I was very skeptical about purchasing a 55" tv online, let alone a used one. My experience with this seller was great! I ordered two tvs andf they arrived packaged very professionally and in great condition. My 55" tv stopped working two days after turning it on but the seller was on top of it. He sent me a new tv and return shipment for the non working one.
Summary: This set was purchased for my sister and is similar to one I bought for myself last year. The 240Hz frequency is great when watching action movies.. No slow drawing boxes of pixels in fast moving scenes. Nice to have a quality U.S. designed TV..
Summary: When the TV arrived (the shipping was quite speedy) the box was beat up badly and the top appeared to have been ripped off and then taped back. More disturbing was that the packaging foam was broken and crushed. We refused the shipment and requested that another TV be sent to us in better condition. I would have rather the TV had taken longer to arrive and arrived in appropriate condition. I don't fault Amazon, they have been very receptive and responsive.
EXCELLENT! As good as any out there, and better than most all others. Buy It!

Summary: I have now had this TV for slightly over a year and still love it, it was a great deal then and still now 1/2 price of a compararable featured Sony or Panasonic. Great features, LED so it has dark blacks, 240 hz so little to no blur in sports, and LCD so lower heat vs plasma, and a screen that does not reflect back light. If you can find this tv or its newer successors, don't think twice, buy it and you won't be dissapointed!
Summary: Bad reviews only serve to make me nervous about my purchase. Cannot tell you how awesome this TV is. I have not had any problems watching sports; the picture remains crisp and clear. It's great for movies and regular shows. The sound is so good, I only use my Sony audio system when we watch movies. The only drawback is that it is REALLY heavy and impossible for one person to move.
Summary: Really bad....If you buy one of these TV's, or any product from Vizio, and it works, congrats! Good deal on not too bad of a TV. But if you have any issues, consider yourself on your own. Our TV started acting up BEFORE it was out of its one year warranty. We contacted Vizios "Customer Service" (I use that term only because that is what they call it) and started getting the run around to fix our problem.
