VIZIO 55" Class 1080p 120Hz LED Smart TV - Black (E550i-B2) is rated 3.8571 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TV is fine, when it is working correctly. My wife got me this TV for my birthday because I had been wanting to upgrade from our 42" TV. I ordered the TV online for an in-store pick-up, took it home and set it up. TV was good for the first two days, then in the middle of playoff football, half of the screen was darker than the other half. I took it back and exchanged it at halftime - no problem at all from Target. The second TV was fine for about 3 weeks, then it would have a blue screen for about 20 seconds every time it was turned on, which would eventually go away. My wife and I decided that this would probably get worse with time, and since we were still in the 30 days that we are able to return it, we should. I returned it and bought the 55" Samsung smart TV and have not had any issues. Also, I find the picture quality to be better on the Samsung - the Vizio's picture quality was fine, but it lacked in some areas. If you purchased, or are purchasing this TV, I hope you have a better experience than I did. Good TV, especially for the money, when it works properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING After a MUCH needed upgrade from our 42" Vizio, this TV is BEYOND amazing!! The picture quality is death compared to what we had. Vizio really did well with upgrading their products since 2007!! what a different 8 years can make on a TV! Whew. I got this TV for a good price, and not even 30 days later its 10% off! Had I only waited about 2 weeks I wouldve saved even more. BUY IT, WITH YOUR MONEY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Flat Screen I like this TV!! It was worth the money but Vizio could have made a better remote than the one for this TV considering how much you pay for it. The picture works for me. I am sure there are more out there with better quality but remember this is my first flat screen!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trim broken on TV first time & second time it turns on/off randomly... We tried twice after reading good reviews about this TV Set. We ordered the first time and picked up in store. Brought home and husband setup but noticed broken plastic trim pieces behind screen leaving dark lines on screen. Plus a bright white light above where the trim piece broke. Took back and they had one at another store. Drove 20 mins and picked up the same model and it was great for the first two weeks! Then it started to flicker off on it's own. It would turn off and on randomly and I'm taking this back. Sorry but not going to try a third time. We had a 47" Vizio before for almost two years and this was to replace the on /off issue on our 47". I dont want the same problems on this 55". Going to spend extra to avoid this again. Maybe you'll have better luck?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Great TV we are very pleased with our purchase and it shipped to store for pick up quicker than quoted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally Satisfied Read lots of reviews and it seemed it was to be either a winner (most felt) or loser, not much in between. This was a winner for me with a great picture and great features. Some of the reviews suggested the picture needs fine tuning but I think it looks great the way it came. However, being someone that has to fool with things I'll tinker with picture settings sometime when my wife isn't here. She thinks the picture is wonderful too, as is, but I want to see some other setup options. TV was easy to set up and it automatically downloaded and installed firmware, which only took a short time. If there is a shortcoming, it's the cheesy remote, but it works. I think it's a great TV so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unacceptable Quality Control The first TV had bright spots all along the bottom as if the frame were pinching the screen. I figured it may have been shipping damage so I gave this model another try. The second one had 7 very noticable smudges similar to fingerprints on the inner side of the screen that were clearly visible when the TV was on, even from 10 feet away. Other than for building my skills at repacking and hauling 55 inch TVs, this model is a complete bust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Fantastic TV. Has Amazon, Netflix, iHeartRadio, etc. built right in. Very easy to set up and program. This is our 2nd Vizio and are incredibly pleased with this product and this brand. Highly recommend.
