its a brilliant combination,

Thanks Vizio! Review by Crutch

I am one of the lucky people that won the VF550XVT HDTVs through the Vizio Million Dollar Event. My HDTV was delivered this past week. This TV is amazing. We went from an old Sony 36" TV to this monster. It took us a few movies to get used to the HD-quality picture. Watching the NFL Network in HD is outstanding. The sound is quite good as well. I am now looking at adding the VSB210WS Sound Bar/Wireless Subwoofer. We are back to watching TV as a family.

PS. The shipping company was the best I have ever experienced. The TV was delivered by an extremely helpful gentleman who helped me unbox this HDTV and check all sides for damage. He even helped me place the TV on our entertainment center. Thanks Vizio!

love it Review by diablo

While I have only had this tv for a few weeks, I love it! The picture is clear, the sound is great, the remote is easy to use and it is a benefit that I can program other remotes into this tv so as to be able to use my satellite remote. I am glad I purchased this tv.
