"Great value again from Vizio."4.5 starson by zeroski
Pros: Everything from price to picture. 240 hz so it will work well with Playstation3 blue ray (and does, awesomely). All the ports you could probably want. Black is finally black. Something with which vizio has been struggling.
Cons: Its not quite tv of those twice its price; not as fashionable as some korean competitors. Apps is a work in progress. Teaming with Yahoo is a bone-head maneuver waste of time, but has netflix. Its obvious the styling is a sino/american cluster F***
Summary: (Irealize I should have outlined this before hand.. I'm kind of all over)
Ok, its not the TV a millionaire would likely buy to impress his friends. But are you and your friends millionaires? I finally have one of those tvs I see in the store that makes it look like you're peering into another world.. not a TV. It almost looks 3D when viewing a super modern Bluray movie. I expected going with a 55" HDtv would totally mess-up my standard definition viewing, but it does a good job of cleaning up artifacts. "regular" analog cable tv looks very viewable. The controls are simple and I think the reviewer missed some menus. There are more picture controls on this tv than my other three (I checked). I do not notice a green hue at all, and there are a few selectable color enhancers that might be to blame for his comment but I suspect its some super geek problem real people don't face. The sony it was sitting next to at costco looked beautiful. I could tell the difference between the LG/Sony/Vizio.. but I could not really say one was better. The black on the lg and sony were blacker, but the artifacts on contrasting colors on the LG were not there at all on the Vizio. The LG was $300 more than the Vizio and the Sony was $1500 more and neither had network capability at all, much less wireless 802.11n. Was a no brainer. Quite happy with it. We'll see how it holds up.
