Vizio VF552XVT

 

If you were one of the billions of people who watched the Super Bowl, you may have seen an ad for a certain TV company called Vizio, promoting a TV that connects to the Internet to offer Facebook, Rhapsody, Netflix and a host of other dot-com-style...

The Vizio 2XVT series offers the best Internet experience we've tested and very good image quality, all for a price that makes other high-end HDTVs seem expensive.

Vizio VF552XVT LED Backlit LCD TV Review

 

The new VF552XVT from Vizio has the latest and greatest features that the company hopes will keep Vizio competing with the Tier 1 manufacturers. This series has LED local dimming backlighting, a 240Hz refresh rate (listed as 480Hz but that is back...

While Vizio often promotes itself as "America's #1 LCD HDTV Company," we are quick to point out that this is sometimes the case with unit sales of LCD TVs, but not total revenues. The reason for the difference is that many of Vizio's top selling models...

An excellent picture at a price that can't beat!

 

Though not the prettiest LED LCD TV out there, this set more than makes up for it with good picture quality, an excellent feature set, and wonderful remote control. However, the firmware isn't updated nearly often enough for my tastes.

The excellent image quality ; The robust set of VIA Apps ; The Wi-Fi connectivity

The very slow firmware updates--come on Vizio ; The trouble with resolving blacks without major blooming ; The poor styling choices
