Summary: It would be nice if there was a greater selection of the apps. The few that i have are a bit slow to respond, and could be better. But the cat 5 hook up is nice, and i love the bluetooth remote, so much better than having to have that line of sight.
Summary: This is a great TV. Once I manually adjusted the levels the picture was great. Also I strongly recommend turning off the features that automatically adjust the color and volume, they don't really do a very good job and are really more of an annoyance.
Summary: I received the TV, waited a few hours for it to warm up, and plugged it in. Everything worked first try - setting up channels, adding components, integrated WiFi - everything. After 17 days, I sat down to watch the TV and the screen flashed a bunch of bars and lights and, briefly, the sound was there. But then the screen turned black and there was nothing. I could not turn the TV off, unplugged it, waited for a while, plugged it back in.
Summary: After 5 months of owning this product... I LOVE this TV. It has it's issues, but all in all, it's great. The picture quality is amazing in 2D. I have yet to purchase the 3D glasses, so I cannot say about the 3D quality. I found I had to calibrate it a bit, otherwise the "smooth motion" technology in it tended to make things look fake, (ie: watch Star Wars: Episode 1 at all the highest/strongest settings, and it just looks funny and fake) unless it was a movie made this...
Summary: I saw the cheap price and glowing picture reviews. I also saw a few people had the "Random Vizio Reboot" issue and the "Black Screen of Death" issue. But I didnt see that this was across many Vizio models, or that it doesn't seem to ever get fixed. I took the chance. I lost. I have the RVR issue and finally the black death screen.
Summary: The repairs if outside of warranty are astronomical, especially for full array LED's with regional dimming. So be careful and consider the implications, like you would with any other TV purchase.
Summary: I bought this set 1 year ago and I figured a review, well short review was due ;) This set has a comparable to Plasma picture,without the worrying about burn in :) The 2D is unbelievable!!!! I was iffy because its a vizio and after doing research I noticed that the weaker 240hz, non 3d version won BEST LED picture of the year @ CNET!
Summary: My whole family very happy with this product. Great video quality, especially when watching computer animated films. Colors are extremely sharp and natural. Works well with media player, from now od I don't ever have to buy DVDs, Netflix is built in and I can watch any movie at any time in HD.
Summary: So I'm still on the fence of what rating this TV should get. This was a huge buy for me, even at 1500$. It being one of the most expensive things I've ever bought sans a car, I had high expectations. So I ordered the first 55-Inch Vizio TV in August. I saw almost immediate problems. The TV had a nasty habit of just turning off, blinking orange and white, and I could not turn it back on for one or two minutes.
Excellent Customer Service...but I wish I hadn't needed it. Twice...and definitely not excellent the second time

Summary: I purchased this set because I already have a 37" Vizio that is rock solid and I love it. We'd already cut the cable cord and I thought this XVT3D554SV would be great since it had the internet apps, etc. The picture IS great... but it completely cut out after 2 days necessitating a service call to replace 4 different boards inside the set.
