Vizio E550i-B2


For 2014, Vizio, in contrast (pun intended) to just about everyone else, offers even more local dimming TVs at more affordable prices than ever. The E series is the company's cheapest line, and at 39 inches and up, most of them have that extra. And it...

The models of the Vizio E series equipped with local dimming deliver superb picture quality for a very affordable price. The image evinces deep black levels with little to no blooming and great bright-room performance, and it provides for plenty of...

Color accuracy and video processing not quite as good as some competitors; poor sound quality; ho-hum styling; lackluster remote.

With picture quality that outdoes that of numerous more-expensive TVs, Vizio's E series likely represents the best value of 2014.

Vizio E550i-B2


The Vizio Ei-B2 series is a full-featured LED HDTV line with an appealing price point, but it suffers from some notable picture issues.

Expert review by : Thomas J. Norton (

Vizio E550i-B2 LED/LCD HDTV


It's not without flaws, but the Vizio E550i-B2 offers more of what we like in a quality HDTV than we ever expected to see at such a low price.

Backlit local dimming for superior blacks; Good color; Remarkable value

Wobbly stand; Occasionally buzzy sound

Very Happy!!!


Upon reading prior reviews, i was leery about buying this TV but thought it too good of a deal to pass up. My gamble paid off. The TV was packaged very well (my biggest concern was whether it would be damaged in transit) and looked like a brand new TV...
