- BEST TV I'VE EVER OWNED Review by 75 STINGRAY
WE BNOUGHT OUR M550SV IN APRIL 2011. WE WERE (DID) MOVE TO THE PHILIPPINES. SO WE WANTED THE BEST TV, WITH THE MOST TOYS AS POSSIBLE. BNECAUSE WE KNEW WE WOULD HAVE TO SETTLE FOR MUCH LESS QUALITY IF WE WAITED AND BOUGHT IT HERE.
WE HAVE HAD "MANY" MBIG SCREENS. THIS IS BY FAR THE CLOSEST THING TO ACTUALLY BEING AT THE MOVIE WHEN IT WAS BEING FILMED, THEN ANY TV OUT ON THE MARKET (at the time). MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT SINCE WE MOVED TO THE P.I.'s, WE DID NOT GET ALL THE FREEBEES (bummer). MY FAVORITE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS TV IS THAT I GET TO LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE RADIO STATION BACK IN SAN JOPSE, CALIFORNIA (KFOX CLASSIC OLDIES).
11 STARS ON A SCALE OF 10 :):):).
THANKS VIZIO FOR BEING WELL AHEAD OF ANY OTHER TV IN ITS CLASS, AT A TIME WHEN WE NEED THE BEST (and just about the lowest $$) WHEN WE NEEDED IT.

- Happy Happy...So Far, So Good! Review by Steve
Our Sony Bravia (46") picture went out (still had sound), so we went to Costco and did our comparison shopping and settled on the Vizio 55" M55OSL. Set up was a snap. Actually took longer to clean off entertainment center to swap tv's than the setup did. This is only our first day with it, but loving it so far. Remote is cool with the two sided feature but could stand to be a little bigger, but then again I have big hands so I will just learn to deal with it. Good picture quality and sound (just with the tv speaker). The only issue I have so far is that my surround sound thaeatre system does not work (worked weel with our Bravia), but I'll contact tech support and talk to them. I'm sure it's something simple. All in all very pleased with our purchase, no regrets whatsoever. I wouild suggest this tv to anyone.

- Outstanding picture quality Review by Eldon
I purchased this TV at Walmart for $1148, and held off writting a review till I had it a few months. I am 75 years old and this is our first flat screen TV. It's absolutely great! We love it. I did considerable comparison before purchasing the VIZIO - M550SV because I felt it's color/picture was equal or better than others including Samsung 6100. And, it was almost $400 less money.
It took me less than an hour to unbox it and set it up. I then phoned VIZIO, and this very nice lady talked me through all the TV set up, which took about 20 minutes. The picture was much brighter and sharper then our old 32" . But then I signed up with DISH TV so I could get HD free for life, and was amazed at how much better HD improved the picture.
I watch a lot of sports (which is why I selected the 240HZ) and it's better than being at the game. The picture is outstanding.
I would definitely recomment this TV.

- VIZIO rules! Review by crank
In March, 2012 COSTCO was selling these for $999.99. Needless to say the flew off the shelf within days. Just wish it was 65" instead of 55" but for what it cost, what the hey!

- Great TV Review by Dave
This is my first HD TV and I couldn't be happier. The picture is great, the set-up was fairly easy and the sound works great also. Some people have noted that they wish the remote was better, but I have found it works great. Got a great deal on it and haven't seen anything that even comes close in price on this TV. Way to go Vizio great TV!

- Can't beat this tv! Review by biggdogg
I just bought this tv two weeks ago and coming from watching a 46" dlp all I can say is wow! This tv can't be beat for the price ($999 at Costco ) bluerays look amazing on this set. I have not experienced any of the power issues that have been posted. So $ for $ this is the best tv you can buy with comparable features.

- m550sv big step up! Review by arjay
Purchased m550sv 0on 3/8/2012. Took 1/2 hour to get unboxed and operating correctly. Seemed to take a few minutes to 'warm up' to a sharp picture. Since this initial set-up the tv has been great. HD is a huge step up from my panny projection that lasted 12 years. Colors truly vi9brant and clear..and unexpectedly sharp. Sports shows outstanding. Movies an experience not realized before. Watched 'The Exorcist' that night..and never realized the pea soup scene was that shade!..WONDERFUL! Only small concern is the remopte control. Seems I cannot control channels or volume. Will contact Visio to see if it's something I can correct by discussion over the phone. Purchased from Costco alongwith Square Trade 3-year extended warranty. Could not beat the total package from anywhere else than Costco!

- Excellent buy Review by Richard
Our 37" tv went out and took it bak to Costco. We bought the Vizio 55" 120Hz tv for $899. I loved that tv, but today I saw this tv for $999, since it was Costco, I was able to swap it out. LOVE this tv, excellent picture quality and audio is good too, but I have a surround sound system spit really doesn't matter.

- Awesome TV! Review by Tye
I got my tv from WalMart yesterday for a steal @ $1148! I could not be happier w/the size and the picture but I am suprised w/the quality of the sound as most flat screens fall short on the sound quality...not w/this Vizio! The neatest thing is the text pad on the back of the remote! If you're in the market for a flat screen, DO NOT PASS THIS UP!

- Great TV! Review by gossml
I have had this TV for one day and I must say I am blown away by the picture quality and the sound is good to for built in speakers. I replaced a five year old LCD TV and the difference is amazing. This is my fourth Vizio in my house and I love it!
