"Unbelievable TV"5.0 starson by AZGreg
Pros: Huge Screen, Not a lot of glare, great picture and sound, great price.
Cons: TV is a bit thick, certainly not the thinnest TV.
Summary: I bought a Panny 54 inch Plasma from Costco that I wasn't very happy with, so I took it back and bought this VF551XVT instead. The TV is breathtaking. The picture is one of the VERY best I've ever seen, it looked better than the 1080p Sony that it was displayed next to. With the Panny, the picture looked decent when connected to DirectTV HD receiver, but it didn't have that 3D look when watching my BluRay player. I was really dissappointed, even though I've always liked Panasonic Plasmas. I won't be returning this Vizio, that's for sure. When watching HD TV, the picture is even better than the plasma. Super sharp, like you're looking through a window. The colors look great, the blacks look as dark as the Panny (thanks to LED backlighting, or TRULED as Vizio calls it), and the sound is far superior to the plasma as well. BluRay is like a whole new experience on this TV. Even my wife couldn't believe how sharp and defined the movies look. Definately has that "3D effect" that the Panny didn't have.
The only dislikes? It's pretty thick, and the VIZIO symbol that lights white under the screen cannot be turned off. Small price to pay for such a great TV at a previously unattainable price.
Overall, I highly recommend this TV.
