Great Choice Review by Mami35

This was my first large flat screen purchase and I have to say that I am Complete! Thank you Vizio for such an Outstanding product! I was in the store trying to decide for over an hour. The salesman was very busy but he took the time out to explain everything to me and answered all of my questions(I know I was getting on his nerves). With his expertise and pleasant attitude I find that I made the Right choice! The picture qualities are fun and so cool, the sound is crazy(in a gd way)(I have the home theater), and the size and how sleek it isn't bad either. Thanks again, I will purchase and recommend !

55" vIZIO mODEL E550I-AO Review by Oneniceguy

What can anyone say about a product that always seems to make the challenger's look like they better upgrade their TV,S OR close up shop.. I was always a (L/G . Sony, Samsung person) But a good friend of mine said try a Vizio TV.. hE HAD A 55" same model as mine and when I took my first glance it was like night and day.. Vizio hands down had a much clearer picture, sound was VERY decent even without sound enhancements .. Plus !!!!!!! the price was right.... Goes to show you that Big companies like ( Sony,L/G, Samsung, ) iTS not about quality anymore with those companies your paying in some cases many of hundreds of dollars just for the name on the front of your TV.. I hope Vizio keeps up the high quality of their products and keep it in a price range obtainable by the average working man/ or woman... I give my VizIo 5 ***** .. Enoy quality pictures, sound, and a total enjoyment in the world of TV,S..

Thank You VIZIO! Review by E. Mad

Thank you VIZIO for making affordable LED Smart TV's!

I recently purchased a the E550i-A0 from BestBuy, Oct. 2013, and seeing how I have always been a VIZIO consumer, first flat screen 2005 VIZIO (still working and has no issues with reselling. just explaining the workmanship I know you put in to every one of your products.) I was more than excited to unbox and set up, XBOX One is so beautiful with the 120Hz, and Netflix was easy to access and log in.
After the purchase I new the only way to experience a VIZIO LED was with a VIZIO Sound Bar! Job well done VIZIO! on both products,
Thank you,

(p.s. I liked the remote with the qwerty keyboard, easier to use)
