Summary: Picked it for the feature set and price combo. Has bleeding edge (at the time) features that are still considered above par for many devices years younger than itself. Was particularly after the full array backlit LED lighting with area dimming. Makes for some superb contrast and a crisp screen.
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!
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..
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...
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.
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.
Summary: I purchased a 551xvt and was pleased with it at first. 6 months in the HDMI 1 jack stopped working. sooon after the HDMI 2 jack stopped.It was fixed under warranty. 10 months in the remote and buttons on the tv stopped working.
