Vizio M550NV RazorLED LCD HDTV Reviewed


Vizio's M550NV 55-inch LCD offers Edge-lit LED lighting and 120 Hz. Adrienne Maxwell takes a look to see how it stacks up against the competition in a world where you can buy your HDTV at Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy or from a traditional AV retailer....

Edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs can suffer from brightness-uniformityissues. The Smart Dimming system likely isn't as precise as what youget from a full-array LED system with local dimming ; LCD viewing angles are not as good you'll find with a plasma TV ;...

This TV is pretty awesome


I shopped around for quite some time to find a great deal. This is it! This 55'' just blows everything else away. I've had it for about 3 weeks now and no issues at all. I upgraded from a 42'' plasma to this one. The wifi works great. The colors are so...

Great Deal


This is a great deal. I searched for a long time for a 55 inch and this was the best deal out there. I have had it for 4 weeks and have not had one problem. Poor sound has not been a problem for me. Great picture quality.

Fantastic picture - great colors and a deep black


I had thought my older LCD TV had a good picture up until I got my new Vizio. Right out of the box the picture is very clear and the colors were great - absolutely no adjustment required. In my opinion, Sony nor any of the other manufacturers have...

Vizio 55" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV M550NV


To bad everyone couldn't own one!

Like all other Vizio products that i own...It's great right out of the box! We love it. Everything is easy to setup and everything works perfectly

Never a bad word about Vizio to speak of. The only thing that i had trouble trying to figure out was how to remove the neck and stand. It tells you in the book to use a thumb screw on the bottom of the base to remove it but there is no such screw to be...

Nice LED Edgle-Lit TV


The picture on the Vizio LED M Series compares to the Sony & Samsung series for hundreds less. It's very user friendly to set up. The remote has a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out making data entry a dream. The sound from the internal speakers is...
