** IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR WATCHING 3D CONTENT
You may experience discomfort while watching 3D content. You may feel symptoms of eye strain, vision fatigue, color or depth distortion, motion sickness, nausea, dizziness, disorientation, or other discomforts. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop watching television and take a break for at least thirty minutes before resuming. If the symptoms are severe or continue even after you have stopped watching television, consult a doctor.
Even if you do not experience any of these symptoms, take regular breaks from watching 3D content.
Take care to monitor children’s watching of 3D content. Children (including teenagers) may be more at risk of experiencing discomfort while watching 3D content and less likely to report symptoms. Monitor children’s television viewing and watch for signs of discomfort.
Some viewers may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or strokes when viewing 3D images, even if those conditions have not been previously diagnosed. If you or anyone in your family has a history of seizures or strokes, or if you have any other reason to think you or someone under your supervision may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or strokes, consult a doctor before watching 3D content.

- Awesome Review by maigheo
This is the best 2D picture I have ever seen. I got my 3D glasses ($120 for 4 pairs) direct from Vizio and that was a great deal.

- The BEST 55" 3D TV out There Review by CCII
I absolutely love this 3D TV ! I owned a LG 52" LCD fo about 1 year before this tv.. The Lcd Conector board went out . LG would not help I WOULD NEVER BUY AN LG PRODUCT AGAIN EVEN IF YOU PAID ME ! LG PRODUCTS / CUSTOMER SUPPORT SUCKS!!
Enough rage about LG... This Vizio TV is THE BEST OUT THERE!! I purchased this TV at Sam’s Club almost a year ago, and have 2 pairs of the 3D shutter glasses. The picture Quality Hands down is the best. I compared against Samsung, LG, and Sony... the 480 hrtz refresh rate is blur free. If you watch a lot of sports, by far this is the clearest TV I have seen. I frequently use the 3D Function of this TV. I Hooked up my Playstation3 through the HDMI port and watch the 3D Blue Ray movies, and play several 3D games on it too.. Simply awesome!!! I hooked the TV up directly to my router via the Internet connection port (I tried the wireless, but if you watch alot of Netflix,(Just wish you could get 3D movies by streaming - hope that changes soon) - there is zero lag. It is easy to use Facebook at the same time while watching your TV.
The only drawback is the deep sound from the tv speakers.. I have since purchased the Vizio 5.1 Theater system with the Sound Bar, wireless subwoofer, and rear speakers. Now with the complete system the theater experience is complete!! The sound is so crystal clear now, I spend way too much time at home now. LOL
Vizio You hit a homerun on this TV!!

- Sound adjustments Review by Steve
In a previous review of this TV I stated that the picture was beautiful but the sound not so much. Well, after contacting Customer Support I discovered that the installers from Costco did NOT setup the sound settings on the TV properly. After a pleasant discussion with Customer Support we got the sound problem straightened out and it works perfectly now!

- Great picture, sound not so much :-( Review by Steve
This is our second Visio TV, the first one being an LCD 47, which I really like. When it came to to replace our other television I immediately thought VIZIO and sought out the 55 LED Backlit 3D. The picture is outstanding! The sound is another story.
The sound from the TV speakers fluctuates up and down a lot and has my wife and I complaining and wanting to through stuff at it (but we don't throw things). The "TrueSound" does not seem to make a difference and that was one of the reasons we bought this television. When we hook up the VISIO Surround Sound System w/subwoofer the sound is very good. Soooooo, something is wrong with the internal sound system.
It took a long time to figure out the controls and to realize that it was not a setting issue and now the 60 day warranty has expired. So much for quality control....

- Love it!!! Review by Rebel19
Picture quality is the best! Still haven't used the 3D feature. Like others stated, 3D glasses are still to expensive.
Had a problem connecting to router. Called support and it took us a while to figure out problem. The tech (Dakota) was great though. The problem ended up being the password being used was too long. We changed the password to 10 characters and problem resolved.

- Lovin' it! Review by Jim
Bought this unit about 2 months ago. I too moved up from a Samsung 50" DLP and have changed lamps 3 times and one color wheel (all under extended warranty, thank goodness). I was actually there to buy the 55" non-3D set, but this one was only $100 more, so I went for the 3D. Less than 3 weeks later, this set was knocked down another $200 and I was refunded the difference, so I got a great deal.
The picture is amazing, bright and crisp. I am a history and science buff, so watching the Smithsonian or Discovery or History or Science channeIs (especially "Aerial America") in 2D is incredible. I bought 4 pairs of 3D glasses online for about $75 a pair. They are reasonably comfortable. These are the battery powered glasses. Don't be fooled by the cheaper "theater" glasses that Vizio sells with their huge 70 inch set. These are two very different animals.
The 3D picture is a lot of fun and very clear. You will get a little ghosting of images from time to time, but you will adjust to that quickly. Consumer Reports ratings for 3D says that plasma sets are the way to go right now, but I am quite happy with this LED/LCD technology so far. I am using a Panasonic BluRay 3D for DVD and I subscribed to ESPN 3D channel and both provide very pleasing results.
My set is hooked up thru a Denon home theater receiver, so the issue of speakers does not exist for me. I do, however, run a second HDMI connection from the BluRay to the TV for some 3D content that the receiver can't/won't handle, and the sound through the TV speakers is just fine.
The remote is very easy to understand and use. However, I have a Logitech Harmony remote that I have used for several years to control the whole system.
Another nice feature for me has been the number of connections in the rear of the set. I upgraded the video card in an old computer running Windows XP and hooked it up through an available HDMI slot and now have a 55", crystal clear monitor that I can operator wirelessly from the couch! (I know, you just screamed out "couch potato", didn't you? :-) )
The unit easily recognized my wireless network so using the apps is great. This is also an area where I need the Vizio remote to type in passwords or searches.
There are three USB ports in the rear of the set that apparently don't do anything, yet. I have read other reveiws on the web that says there is a firmware upgrade for these, but I have not seen it in Vizio's support section or through any options via the TV itself. I see these as important if you want to use a webcam for video conferencing or just to see the family on the other end.
There is also a complaint circulating that this set will just go to black or turn off. I think it has done this to me once, but I don't know if it was the TV or the AT&T U-verse PVR. The TV did display a "NO SIGNAL" mesasge, so it could have been a processing error between the PVR and the Denon receiver, so I can't verify which piece of equipment is to blame.
I hope this reveiw helps you decide what you want. As I said, I wasn't in the market for 3D, but the price break sold me on this unit. I don't think you will be dissappointed if you get this TV. I love mine!

- Bangin NICE Review by dpast
Purchased at Costco, great price considering the over all value and you can't beat the the 2yr extended warranty. Non of the other manufactures after shopping around have offered the 480Hz. Picture quality is exceptionally great, vibrant sharp images, Internet apps add enhaced usage for the device. I am a true fan of the included applications but most of all Tunein radio (Please update version on system is old). By far about the only device that has Tunein application included even in home theater systems. Hands down great purchase and cant beat the the 2yr extended warranty that comes with the purchase with Cosotco.
Can't really say anything about the the 3d picture haven't tried out in the process of purchasing a replacement home theater system.
My only concerns with device is the audio, it just seems to be underpowered both speakers and output from device. Yes I know the device has 2X15W but I was used to an old Sharp tv non flat screen. Device was made in 2003 had BBE but man the audio was slamin great tv was always at 18 to 20 on the volume. I have this tv set at 35 and find my self always raising the volume to about 45. Its not just this Vizio model either, considering this unit has a power increase of 5W vs the its other versions.

- Excellent Black Levels Review by Nat
I bought this Vizio 55inch 3D TV , and havent used it yet! I am eager to see this unit installed on my system .I saw this unit at best buy and compared it with Sony,Samsung,and Panasonic which are all great products, I selected the Vizio due to the Black level that this unit produces. similar to CRT,or Plasma dark levels for an LCD unit. Was impressed when I tweaked it with my DVD calibration disk, and the picture was prestine, especially the fleshtones.It was awesome, backed off the contrast, and adjusted the picture in Film Mode. It was a natural picture with good black retention. Vizio engineers deserve the credit, imagine the next generation Vizio...what next!

- Excellent TV Review by John
Was a Samsung Fan before, now I am completely Vizio. This TV has a better picture than any tv I've ever seen. Don't really use the 3d yet since U-verse doesn't really offer 3d except for espn. Anyone that wants a great tv should get this!

- Best electronic buy in my lifetime! Review by movieguyz
I finally broke down and bought this TV 5/20/11 from my local Costco after drooling over it for 6 months. I bought the last one in stock for $1,400+ tx! This set has the best picture quality of every set (led/lcd or plasma) I've seen at Best Buy or Frys or Video Only. It is an amazing picture to behold straight out of the box. I am amazed at the movie picture quality on bluray & on VUDU. The current NBA playoffs are a true treat. This TV is an upgrade from a 5 yr old 47" Vizio VO47L10A lcd which itself was/is an excellent performer and value (and now resides in my bedroom). The 3D performance was not why I bought this TV although at some point I will try it out. I am taken aback by the insane prices of all the shutter-style 3D glasses by all the various major manufacturers. I'm betting some third party vendor will fill that aftermarket void and I'll buy them then as there are 8 people in my household. $150+ per pr of glasses is ludicrous. My main reasons for this buy was picture qualty (the black levels are almost unrivaled at any pricepoint), features, 480hz, build quality and overall value. On the point of build quality I base my statement on the experience with my first Vizo product (also bought from Costco) which I have never had a moment's problem with and has survived my own installation and being moved (by me) to 3 different houses. I hear these nightmare stories about problems with their Vizio sets and I honestly scratch my head wondering why? I have one complaint and that is I expected to have Hulu Plus already built-in to my TV's apps. Vizio support assures me a update roll-out is pending shortly with that app and some other nice upgrades I wasn't anticipating so I'm in wait and see mode. Vizio never advertised this set as a 'smart tv' so I don't get the criticism that it doesn't have a built-in browser. I don't care that it isn't the slimmest or lightest or sexy looking design on the market. The picture is what is important and nobody is better, and those that are close cost crazy money more! I don't have a complaint about the remote as I use a Logitech 1100 remote to control everything: TV, AV receiver, bluray, sat/dvr, computer, etc. I have yet to figure out how to program the Logitech to activate the VIA feature set but I'll keep playing with it untill I do. I've bought and own a ton of electronic devices over the years but this TV is hands down my best buy. I recommend this set to anyone looking for the best picture quality and overall value on the market. Bravo Vizio!
