VIZIO E55-C1

 

TVs with 4K resolution are falling fast in price, but they're still significantly more expensive than good old 1080p TVs. Unfortunately TV makers often reserve their best picture-enhancing features, such as local dimming , for the 4K models. Local...

Great TV

 

Initial setup was surprisingly involved but easy. At the end, the tv was registered with the manufacturer. Controls and "Smart" options are easy to understand and navigate.

Just OKAY

 

Husband and I did extensive research when shopping for our new TV. This one had great reviews. We've had it for 2 days now and the picture quality is inconsistent (quality is great on close up shots, but downright blurry and borderline horrible on wide...
