The Vizio VF551XVT does not offer a size larger than 47.
Limited user calibration options, Remote lacks discrete inputs, Only 1 component video input on rear of set
Quality not as good as competition, Poor design (lose the silver trim), Remote should be better, No Internet capability.
Uninspired design. Narrow viewing-angle performance. Some noticeable artifacts in 1080p content.
A few negligible pet peeves, like a notalwaysresponsive remote control, Even now, staring at VIZIO's 240SPSenhanced moving images, I'm still not a fan of "Smooth Motion" video
Backlight fluctuates with program content; below-average shadow detail; fewer picture controls than some high-end HDTVs; ho-hum styling.

All in all, I'm very impressed with the VF551XVT's performance. It doesn't have the refinement I've seen from the best higher-end panels, but its picture quality is really quite good. It's an excellent all-purpose TV, well suited for...80

In the world of flat panel HDTVs, VIZIO has the largest market share, mainly because right from the start, they offered good quality at very low prices. This forced the competition to lower their prices as well, but VIZIO still is the least...-
