    Product Overview

    High definition entertainment has never been so amazing – or affordable. The 55” Class (54.64" Diag.) LCD HDTV delivers 1080p Full HD for incredible color and contrast, 120Hz refresh rate for ultra-sharp, smooth motion when viewing fast-action sports and movies, and striking 100,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio for truly deep blacks and brighter whites.

    No matter your lighting arrangement, you’ll always have you the best picture possible thanks to built-in ambient light sensing technology that automatically adjusts backlight levels based on its surroundings. The result is a balanced picture that will never appear washed out or too bright.

    You’ll also enjoy impressive surround sound with SRS TruVolume™ that limits volume inconsistencies between programming and SRS TruSurroundHD™ audio that turns your room into a personal theater. It delivers an immersive surround sound experience marked by clearer dialogue and more precise bass and high frequency signals. Add a VIZIO Soundbar for seriously intense audio.

    Three HDMI® ports accommodate your home theater setup, Blu-ray® Player and HD satellite TV or cable so you can enjoy 1080p Full HD at its finest.

    Conserve energy and the environment. This HDTV uses technology with remarkably low energy consumption that exceeds ENERGY STAR® 4.1 Guidelines.
