I didn't see this posted, but it appears Amazon has the 55 at 898 again. About 2 months ago Walmart dropped theirs and Amazon matched, but Amazon has it at the same price again.

Best other price now seems to be tiger at $1,078.99...

That's from Dell with tax

This is from Amazon with no tax for most... How is this a repost?

Getting to own a 55" TV in a affordable price range seems to be the norm for 2010.

if you are one of the lucky Chase CC holders who got the 20% off code MAILED to them, you can get this down to $720 shipped to your door!

Got my inlaws a similar Vizio. The set is overall very nice. It's thick, but mounts on the wall very nicely with a low profile monoprice mount - $20. The picture head on is excellent with processing turned off. Vizio stuck out on the smooth motion processing. It's horrible. I've tweaked this thing for several months, and the best I can get is everything set at "50", and all processing turned off.

Off axis is bad, but I'm comparing this to our Samsung plasma and smaller Aquos 46" LCD. The screen is matte, and really does no one justice off angle. It loses contrast, color, brightness, sharpness. You name it, if you sit too far to either side, the picture just plain sux.

The picture quality is outstanding at distances of 10' to 20'. Sitting in the kitchen watching this set (great room) is amazing. Sitting right in front of the set on a couch about 7-8' away is pretty good, but IMO the set is too big at that distance. I should have got them a 52" or 50" for optimal picture, but it was a Target floor model clearance and couldn't pass up the deal.

For the price, I'd probably recommend you spend another $200 and get a 54" or 58" plasma. I think the build quality is better with plasma's (metal back panels compared to plastic), and a glass screen which is a 100% improvement in off axis viewing. Plus, you're not dealing with bogus processing that mimics soap opera's or video camera's. Why pay for something that needs turned off?

Good price. Big set. Bad off axis and processing. Excellent set at the proper distance and front on viewing. Light. Dependable. My .02. Wink

Isn't the off axis viewing due to the thinness of the screen? I remember LCDs of 3-4 years ago, that didn't seem to be a concern, but they were also much thicker.

What is the biggest selling point for TVs having the thin factor other than lower weight and mounting the TV?
