Vizio’s newest 55-inch VF550XVT1A LCD TV will probably make many consumers want to go out and buy a new television now. It has many fine qualities, such as the Smooth Motion Video 120Hz refresh rate feature and an incorporated sound processor, the SRS TruSurround HD, which creates great audio. Although far from a steal, the $2,000 price is fair, but whether it’s right for you remains to be seen. You might also like the Vizio M55-C2 4K LED TV

The Vizio LCD TV is big enough to use as a real home theater system and it is ideal if you are in the market for the best thin and lightweight flat panel HDTVs. LCD screens are perfect for brightly lit rooms because they do not reflect light. They also use less power and are therefore environment-friendly, a concept so important these days.

Vizio has also announced the debut of a few smaller, lower-power displays and a new monitor, but they can’t hold a candle to the new Vizio 55-inch VF550XVT1A LCD TV, which is not yet available for sale but is slated to be on the Vizio site any day now

  1. I won!! one of this great tv´s at million dollar event from vizio a few years ago!!
    And still watching as first day!!

  2. I find what Jeff says to be very hard to believe. There are always problems with new products on some scale, but for a large reputable company to not honor their warranty? Companies will honor the terms of their warranty as long as the terms are met. Always check those terms before you make a purchase. Come on Jeff, get your facts straight! Buyers should beware of what you are saying!

  3. couldnt find one at costco for 1547 or I would’ve done it.

    Costco website seems to have deleted Vizio altogether. What’s up with that–anyone know?

    IS there any word on problems with Vizio sets? OR high returns to Costco?

    1. If you go to Consumer Reports and type in Vizio,you will see all the coments about the product.People are having power supply issues and Vizio will not be responsible for fixing them,even with warranties.Buyer beware!

  4. I just hang up the phone with costco and it’s $1797. It’s a bargain for this kind of technology I have to say. I own 3 vizio, 26, 42 and 55.

  5. I have benn using this tv for the past 18 days.absolutely perfect picture and sound.I didn’t have to hook up my home theater system.the speakers fill a 14 x 16 room with great sound.most of these lcd have poor speakers even at $3000.00. I paid $1547.00 in costco new jersey it was the last day on sale reg price is model vf550xvt1a its 1080p 5ms and 120hz.all for this price you can’t beat. I was not impressed with the sound on the samsung,sharp,and sony and none of them could match this price. If you can get it buy it you won’t regret it

  6. I find it very hard to believe that a Television with this sort of pricetag from Vizio (high for a Vizio) doesn’t come with some real basic features such as PiP and Parental Controls… sad really, the worse part is that the PiP controls are on the remote because they have included the same standard (new model with amber LED) Vizio remote.
