Excellent Picture Quality, Features, and Customer Service!!!

Summary: First of all my review is solely for the TV itself, and not Amazon, since we purchased this TV at Wal Mart. - Start up and Set up - With so many features offered I thought this TV might be overwhelming to set up out of the box - it ISN'T. It walks you through step-by-step on things such as synching up the remote with your cable/satellite box, receiver, setting up the network to use the "WIDGETS" (or apps), etc. I was up and running literally within 10 minutes.
Summary: Yes, I am a crazy researcher who delved into every review and every rating for the best LED HDTV on the market. We visited retail stores to look at many TVs and to ask hundreds of questions about every detail regarding bright room viewing. We placed this Vizio in our family room that has skylights and wrap around windows. The picture is amazing in full sunlight. The matte screen prevents any glare.
Summary: I had been studying TVs for a bit less than a year. I finally pulled the trigger on this one, about 2 weeks ago. It arrived today. I tuned it with settings I found online. This thing, besides being huge, looks great. I replaced my LVM-42w2 with this one; the old 42 is relegated to my bedroom. CNET, and a few other sites, called this one the current (11/12/2010) best picture quality.
Summary: I spent a good bit of time researching what I wanted to replace an 11 yr. old projection LCD. I read plenty of reviews and details on the technology and I had decided was important to me. I looked at multiple publications and finally looked at the picture compared side by side with others in a retail store. Here is the short version- great picture regardless of my source (some tweaking done but even out of the box this was still true.) Easy set-up.
Summary: This is the third Vizio I have bought in the past 3-4 years and there is a reason I keep buying from Vizio - great quality for a great price. I remember doing months worth of research on various TV's and comparing prices from all over before finally deciding to buy a "37 Vizio LCD back in 2007. This TV was the same - lots of research and finally deciding to buy this one. I couldn't be happier.
Summary: We have had this TV for three weeks. It replaces a Vizio 50" Plasma purchased 4 years ago that died. - Picture quality is outstanding. Very dark black with no visible back-lighting. NFL games and fast-action video work great. Side-angle viewing is good with this TV. - Tons of inputs. - Vizio Support answers the phone promptly. They're helpful and courteous. - Excellent matte screen surface with little to no glare from lamps, windows, and doors.
Summary: This picture is incredible, looked great in the store and even better once I started watching football. News channels like fox news and cnn look great on this set as well. I love all the features you can use from the wi-fi capibility. You can download different games and other widgets including streaming netflix directly to your set and the quility is very good (I have xfinity from comcast, you probably need a high speed connection to make use of this).
Summary: This TV is amazing. The only thing more incredible is the bargain. I have been shopping flat screens for about a year now. I almost pulled the trigger on a Samsung C8000 until I came across this TV. You get everything Samsung has to offer minus the 3D which, for me, is still too new to invest in. This model boasts a 10,000,000 to 1 Dynamic Contrast ratio compared to Samsung's 8,000,0000. Blu-Ray (Sony BDP-570) looks and sounds spectacular. DirecTV HD shines as well.
Excerpt: What more can you ask for? The best bang for the buck! This TV has a fantastic feature with plenty of adjustment options. The internet apps and WiFi capability make the TV extremely versatile. Most major retailers do not carry the Vizio only big names like Samsung and Sony. Comparable Sony and Samsung models with 240Hz, Wireless N, internet apps run hundreds of dollars more with no additional benefit. When looking at LED backlit LCD give Vizio a serious look.
