What do actual customers say:
“This TV is amazing. The only thing more incredible is the bargain. I have been shopping flat screens for about a year now. I almost pulled the trigger on a Samsung C8000 until I came across this TV. You get everything Samsung has to offer…”
“I could not be happier with this purchase. I know nobody likes to spend lots of money only to say how crappy the product was, but if I were not 100% satisfied with this Vizio XVT553SV I would have easily exchanged it for something else. The fact is I cannot think of any other TV that offers the same features, picture quality, etc. for the price.”
“…features are amazing and overall the quality and feature set of this set rivals many of the bigger TV manufactures (Sony, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic). I have a very bright room and the anti-reflective coating really does stop the glare. I am super happy with the purchase…”
“This picture is incredible, looked great in the store and even better once I started watching football. News channels like fox news and cnn look great on this set as well.”
