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....

The edge-lit LED design allows for a slim cabinet, and Vizio addsSmart Dimming for more precise control of the LED lighting system toimprove black-level performance ; The 120Hz technology effectively reduces motion blur and offersmultiple settings to...

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 ;...

At least on paper, the M550NVcertainly gives new edge-lit LED LCDs from the likes of Samsung andSony a run for their money. This TV has the same desirablefeatures--like Smart Dimming, 120Hz, built-in WiFi, a slim form factor,and a Web platform with...

TV Shutdown is common on all models!

 

I've read through many reviews from different websites on this HDTV and was surprised to find only three here on Cnet for this TV. I usually don't post on these sites (actually, this is my first) but, I wanted to raise a good product when I see one....

Outstanding picture, very good add-ons, price is very good

Extended warranty would be wise as well as ANY HDTV

Awesome HDTV!!!

 

Can't figure this out this Vizio Edge Lit LED-LCD HDTV has been rated less usage wattage than a Vizio True LED HDTV as reported on Vizio's website?.For the price(WalMart) don't think it can be beat.

4 HDMIs,LED-LCD HDTV-82.1 watts usage rating!,240Hz,slim profile.Internet Apps.178 degree viewing area

Have not found any yet,been using this HDTV since 5-7-2011

Awesome picture but tv turns itself off very frequently

 

Purchased from walmart for $1298. Now walmart price is $1498. Must return. Vizio call center has tried repeatedly to resolve over phone. No luck.

Great picture

Will not stay on. Must unplug from wall each time

Wish I could afford to buy another one!

 

Setup was a snap - got it out of the box, hooked up a Toshiba DVD recorder/VCR combo via HDMI and a standard def DirecTV DVR to the composite A/V (no HD DVR yet). On a HD signal, this TV has an incredible picture - bright image, great blacks (some TVs...

Incredible picture - bright image, great blacks ; Streaming from Netflix, Vudu and Amazon works great ; Great built-in features ; Remote is dream to use too. It's full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard is great for all data entry

Internal speaker is weak as most TV speakers are so I recommend a sound bar or surround system
