    Not impressed

    The whole reason I bought this was to get rid of another device (like Apple or Roku). You can't add apps to this TV. You are stuck with the limited pre-installed apps, unless of course you want to add another device or use your phone to "cast" an app to the TV. My old TV which I put out to the curb was already gone, or I would be returning this one. The picture quality is literally the same as the old TV I put out to the curb.

      Hello hfactor, Thank you for the feedback. A few things that might help you get the kind of picture quality you are looking for. First, make sure the Display is getting a hi-definition or 4K signal. This means making sure that you're source device (like a cable/satellite box) is capable of HD or 4K, and that it's connected to your Display with an HDMI cable that can deliver the HD or 4K picture. You can also change between pre-set picture modes on the display by pressing the PIC button on your remote. This will toggle between a few picture setting that look good in different situations. If your display is in a bright room try Vivid or Calibrated. If it’s in a dimmer room try Calibrated Dark. VIZIO

    The picture and features are great for this price range (paid $650). Colors pop, crisp blacks, looks terrific. Built in SmartCast app leaves something to be desired, and feels a bit slow. Great TV though.

    This set has a terrific picture. The apps leave a bit to be desired as there is no adding or subtracting from the built in apps. It's really not a big deal if you have a roku, Apple TV or Android TV box though. Overall, very pleased with this set.

    Great Didplay, Slow UI

    Excellent blacks and beautiful picture. One complaint is the user interface. When it comes to accessing the menu, the response is too slow and selecting apps takes time. I'd rather have a plain looking UI that is quick and snappy than a pretty but slow UI. My other complaint is that there's no customization and no option to forget a network that you connect to.

    The picture is amazing, this TV is really worth it for that. The menu system is terrible, leaves a lot to be desired. Always starts to a home screen with ads for shows/movies you may or may not have access too - for example if you dont subscribe to a particular service. Can't show whats on live TV/cable, like some other systems, without tuning to the station or using the app. Vizio really wants you to use the app, but certain things like Amazon don't work in the app while other things just dont work well. But oh, that picture is SO nice for the price!

    Issue with Xbox One X HDR

    This TV has a great picture quality and works great for most use. However, there is an issue with Xbox One X when HDR is enabled. When switching games or apps or after extended play (> 1 hour), the screen will flash on and off intermittently. This seems only to occur when HDR is enabled on the TV. After some research it seems that other people have had the same issue. As of now the only fix is to disable HDR, and disconnect/reconnect the HDMI cable. Rather annoying, seeing as how I purchased this TV specifically for HDR 4k gaming...

    I bought this tv almost 2 weeks ago and have been binge watching a lot since. The build quality is very good and the picture is fantastic. The blacks are really black and the details on 4k streamed content is first class. Where the set isn't good is chromecast and the lack of adding apps to the tv. I have to reboot my phone each time I use it to get on directv now, and have to log in on the phone not the app on the tv to access hulu. There's a long delay each time a channel is changed and basically it sux, no web browser available in 2018 on their top of the line tv is pathetic. But for the money best buy is offering it, the picture, the main reason I bought this is well worth it.

    I'm loving the quality of the picture, it's well worth the $$. If I was a bit wealthier I would have gottan a sony 900f or oled tv but on a budget this was an outstanding buy. The smart os is really poorly done and I called geek squad for help pairing my samsung 8+ to this tv and it was a Total Waste of an hour. The person gave me 2 utube links which had Nothing to do with pairing a vizio to its mobile app. I called Vizio and although it took awhile we did get them paired but I have to refresh my phone to get it to cast to the tv, which is nuts it being 2018. So the tv has a Great picture, very black blacks, lifelike skin tones on the calibrated mode, good motion control. I'll either keep the tv and get a roku ultra or return it, not sure yet. I love to be wowed when I buy a product I'm spending hundreds of dollars on, this was a frustrating couple of days with the poor os and lack of changing or adding apps on the tv.

    Great TV with a nice price tag

    After reading a few reviews on a few different models and brands I decided to settle on the Vizio P series 55" model. The picture is fantastic. It has deep blacks, has local dimming, a native 120hz panel. The picture looks great out of the box but once you calibrate it the picture is even better! I haven't noticed much more than some very minor blooming or and haven't noticed any screen effect watching NHL. While the picture is fantastic this TV does have some drawbacks. First the sound is bad and I mean really bad. Most modern 4K TVs have poor sound quality but this set is extremely poor so I recommend a sound bar. The second issue is the operating system and apps. Both are very sluggish and some are outdated and there is no way for you to download more but you can use Google Chromecast. The preinstalled apps don't support everything the TV does. For example the Vudu app will play Dolby Vison HDR format but display the image in 1080p rather than 4k. I would recommend getting a streaming device like Roku. One other issue is gaming. I had some issues with the HDMI ports and the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X both getting black flickering screens, especially in HDMI 2, which I believe states it is the best port. I was able to get everything connected without any flickering by changing the settings on both the PS4 pro and swapping HDMI ports which was initially annoying. I will say it has a low input lag and haven't noticed any lagging while gaming. I think the issue had to do with the PS4 Pros signal output and the TV. Also while the Xbox one x states it will play Dolby vision content it thinks the TV supports an older version so don't count on anything other than HDR 10 from the system. Besides the minor issues I mentioned the TV is worth the money. I lucked out by having won a panel lottery as I have no vertical banding or DSE. Note that with all FALD panels the corners of the tv will appear a little darker but mine is very minor and hardly ever notice it unless I look for it intentionally. I included an image of standard 1080p image from VIOS after the tv being calibrated for reference.

    This TV looks amazing. 1080p content even looks great. I really like the Dolby vision. That makes the picture look so good. I stream Dolby vision content on Netflix. The only issue with the TV would be the UI. I love Roku, so, it doesn't matter to much to me. But their apps are a bit slow. I got this TV for the super bowl. Live TV is never best quality, but this upscale looks decent compared to older models. I'm a huge fan of Vizio.

    Bright, Vivid, Excellent 4K TV

    I have owned this TV a little less than 1 month, but I love it so far. Let me preface it by saying that I love the tv, but the built-in Chromecast is clunky and slow and as others have noted, it has a limited range of apps built in. Apparently they add them as they deem demand worthy. The reason I am still giving it 5 stars is because I use this TV paired with my Xbox One X and it has amazing clarity when used with the Xbox One X. I love the built- in and customizable and easy to switch between color profiles. I frequently switch between "Vivid" and "Game" for streaming content and playing fast paced video games respectively. Another great feature of this is the remote has a dedicated picture button that makes switching profiles a 1 second process. It has more inputs that I know what to do with and good sound too. Very elegant, small bezel design and looks great on a VESA mount or on the provided legs. I have had zero issues with flashes, streaks, color related issues, or anything else. I would recommend this TV to others.

    Not a smart TV, a smart phone display more like it

    Posted
    Paulie

    I went out and bought this TV after doing my homework. I got it home it looks beautiful , and from there the problems show up left and right. This is not a smart TV, this is a TV with 10 apps installed and you are limited to that on screen. Every other app has to be installed to a smart phone. There is no ability to filter a search for vizio smart cast apps. unLike other TV brands you can search install and uninstall needed and unneeded apps. If you like to browse apps and shows this TV is not for you. You have to know what you want to watch to determine what you have to down load to you own personal phone. For instance Youtube does not work on the TV only on your phone. No amazon music, or photos, no weather apps, no games. There si no list of apps that are smart cast and no ability to filter free or paid for apps. Pluto the Free streaming tv app installed works great except for not being able to select a channel by the channels number. so if you are on channel 936 adn want to go back to channel 12 you have to scroll through 100 channels to get back, no last fiction or recently viewed Chanel function. No recently viewed app function also. So if you watch AMC regularly you have to open the app on your phone and select the content on your phone first before you can display it on the TV. Horrible. Horizontal line appear within a few hours of use an are not visually pleasing, in fact I thought something might be wrong with the panel. the loading screen has obvious bloom. My Amazon Fire stick which was $39 is faster to load and has better picture quality on the apps screen. The $39 fire stick is far more versatile and snappy than a my new $900 TV. I will be returning ASAP in the morning for a full refund. If you don't mind having your face in your phone while watching TV this is for you. No Bluetooth as a secondary concern for a TV of this price should have such a basic function. The front panel of the TV is wavy and not flat very noticeable from the side with a reflection just all around unhappy with OS and usability of the TV. The Picture however is great best in class, same with the design. The OS is years behind any other TV band.

      Hi Paulie. Thank you for your feedback. The TV actually has 2 different ways of accessing apps. The first way is with traditional built-in applications like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu. We’re frequently updating the unit with new apps. Most recently we’ve added NBC & Youtube (which were added to this model through an automatic firmware update). This model also comes with built-in chromecast technology that allows you to cast content from thousands of application on your iOS or Android devices. For a list of all cast capable applications please visit. https://store.google.com/us/product/chromecast_2015_apps.

      We would love the opportunity to work with you to resolve this issue. Our customer support team can be reached at 877-878-4946. VIZIO

    Great display, poor software

    The Vizio P55-F1 matches a great display with poor user-facing software. __[ Display / Hardware ]__ As someone that tends to lean heavily towards a popular competitor known for their display quality, I was surprised by the quality of the display in this TV. While the settings of the default picture modes seemed rather lackluster, manual calibration using the wide array of available picture adjustment settings met with great results. The display provides great contrast, brightness, surprisingly dark black levels (aided by the full array local dimming zones), clarity, fast update frequency that allows smooth motion, wide viewing angle, and important inclusion of a low-latency gaming mode, which all combine into a first-rate visual experience among current generation LCD displays. Backed by a wide array of new video and display technologies, this unit represents a significant jump from older generation LCD displays. The complement of physical connection options is extensive, though I found the placement and orientation of the coaxial cable port to be somewhat problematic. It is important to be aware that like many mid-to-large size TVs, this unit is supported by legs that are located near the side edges (as opposed to a central pillar), and thus smaller TV stands and similar furniture may be unable to accommodate this TV. About 50" width would be the bare minimum to support the legs, which gives about 1" margin on both sides. __[ UI / UX / Software Design ]__ I found the user interface and general software design to be quite disappointing. The responsiveness to remote control input and UI updates in general feels sluggish. The vast majority of the space of the home screen is taken up by the marquee content carousel and content discovery panes which advertise both free and premium content available across the various streaming service apps (whether you use them or not). These seem designed purely for monetary kickbacks to Vizio, with no apparent means for customization or use-based personalization. Tucked away on a single row at the bottom are the available apps. It takes 19 directional movement clicks of the remote to arrive at an app I use frequently: Plex. While the remote control has six quick launch buttons for apps (which also happen to be the first six apps listed on the home screen), there seems to be no way to re-designate these buttons. Vizio had the opportunity to help alleviate navigational issues with their remote control mobile app, but instead of taking advantage of increased flexibility afforded by touch screen input powered by a highly programmable device, they opted to make the app merely mirror the functionality of the physical remote control--a major disappointment. On the subject of the remote, not only does it feel cheaply made, but the buttons have the same color as the rest of the remote, are labeled using a font that is thin and hard to see, and have no back-lighting option. The Alexa/Google Home integration may seem like a nifty addition, but seems almost completely useless (though I only tested the Google Home integration). I wasn't able to launch most apps (only an extremely small subset of available apps are supported), switch inputs, or change over-the-air (OTA) channels using voice input commands. Instead, most voice commands I tried were interpreted as YouTube searches. While inclusion of an OTA tuner is an improvement over other modern Vizio models, this seems to have been hastily tacked on as an afterthought, with absolutely minimal effort dispensed in its implementation. This TV doesn't even appear to have a visible channel list that can be navigated through. OTA broadcasts include programming guide (EPG) data (which doesn't require an Internet connection to receive) which includes information such as program/episode descriptions, program line-up and time-slot scheduling. While many TVs are able to display this extensive data, the only EPG data this TV seems to display is the description of the current program/episode of the currently tuned channel, when you press the 'info' button twice. __[ Conclusion ]__ This TV is a prime example of why you should be skeptical of smart TVs. You are paying a premium for inclusion of features available in external media streaming units and tuners, but are rolling the dice on feature implementation and software quality which are permanently married to the display hardware. Most casual users will likely find most of the smart TV features of this unit adequate, if a bit clunky. Power users might instead consider going with a'dumb' display paired with their media streaming device(s) of choice. 'Smart' features aside, this TV boasts great display hardware that provides a top-tier visual experience that any viewer can appreciate and enjoy.

    Can’t beat the color

    So my wife and I tried to take the cheap way out when buying our first 4K tv. We literally bought and returned 3 tv's within 1 week during the Black Friday deals before buying this Vizio P series. We started out with a Samsung, then LG then a Vizio E Series, all in the $399-$549 price range, none of which came close to this Vizio P series. Yes we ended up spending $799, but the picture brightness and clarity is that of the lower end OLED TVs. Everyone has to remember the TVs at the store are hooked up to 4K programming or CD, so when you go home and hook up to your cable box or direct tv, you will lose a lot of the color, even if you spend five grand$$$ I was not even aware of this tv until the salesman showed it to us. The picture, vibrancy and 2D effect is unbeatable in the price range. After doing extensive reasearch and many trips to Best Buy, the only thing close in the price range is the Sony Bravia 55 inch 900F series and it is priced at $1400. Nothing compares in this price range. The only negative I have to mention is the setup took forever (45 mins) by the time all the apps updated. Also you have to have your home WiFi modem close buy, the tv WiFi is not that strong and will be intermittent if the modem is too far away, causing signal loss and buffering while streaming movies. So in recap for the size and price range this tv can't be beat. The only thing comparable is the Sony Bravia 800E, but it is only a 49' inch, the 55'inch is $1400. Sure all the $400-$500 4K tv's are clear, but you have a hard time getting everything like clarity, vividness, color, brightness etc.. . all in one tv. Do yourself a favor and look for the Vizio display and watch this P Series tv on display. You will see what I mean. I would upload a photo, but it really doesn't do it justice depending on your phone pixels.

    A month in. Let me start of by saying I own two other TVs, one is a $4300 Sony 70in and another a $2500 LG. Both TVs have very high ratings at Best Buy and RTing. Now to the Vizio. I was looking for a TV the wife and I can enjoy and wasn't our go-to entertainment system. This TV has impressed me from the start, the blacks are comparing near OLED levels of my LG and picture detail and clairity is near perfect compared to the Sony. I was able to get it at a very good price during the Labor Day sale and it has been worth every penny. Let's talk about the application and UI(user interface). I am amazed so many people are complaining of a slow response and application taking a long time to load. Coming from a very high end tv comparison the noticeable lag is almost not there, I am not sure what reviewing are expecting and what they are comparing this to because I would love to get a hold of that tv which they are referencing. The SmartCast application is very handy, you download the app and replaces the remote control. Power, volume, channel, setting etc. all can be controlled with the app. A note to Vizio, please add backlighting to your handheld remote. The audio on this tv isn't so great but almost nobody now days uses the build in audio for their entertainment system. A $170 Vizio soundbar any other soundbar/surround would solve this issue. I don't see this as reason to give this tv anything less than 5 star. Cheers!

    Amazing Picture... Horrid Software

    Ok so first and foremost this TV looks amazing. Last year I was using a Samsung Mu8000 and then I bought a LG SK9000 before Conns broke it but that's another story for another day. Picture Quality The Vizio has a beautiful picture with a ton of settings to help the average joe get the picture dialed in to their liking. I did notice that some sources don't look as good as others (HBO Go vs Netflix) but maybe it's just me. @@@@@@@@ HBO looked a little grainy for my taste). This TV is super bright and supports HDR 10 & Dolby vision. Quite hard to beat for the price. Gaming I'll admit if you're a gamer it'sn't quite as fluid as the LG SK9 but it's still good enough to where the input lag won't be a nuisance. Game mode takes away a lot of the "flair" but it does help with input lag. Setup and Software. This is where Vizio needs the most help. The software is horrid. It's probably the worst TV interface I've ever experienced. It just seems cheap. It's also very slow and sluggish. I would say just buy a Apple TV or Roku but the UI still gets used for switching inputs. Remote & app. The remote app is fantastic. I can't say the same for the remote that comes out of the box. It's cheap feeling but it has the typical Netflix and amazon video buttons. The app is much better. Casting. A lot of people have issue with the tv due to lack of apps but if you use your phone as the app, casting isn't so bad. Overall it's a great TV. The negative points are just things to keep in mind but if you want a great picture for a great price I say do it!

    Superb Picture

    First off, this TV looks fantastic right out of the box with little adjustment needed. For me this was an exchange from a TCL 6 series, which I was not satisfied with. Dolby Vision and HDR Content looks impeccable, motion handling was very good for sports, and I actually was quite pleased with the aesthetics of this TV. For the first couple of weeks I could not be happier with my purchase, but I did end up returning this set after I began having an issue with horizontal white lines flashing across the screen, more on that below. Despite having a fantastic picture, I was less than thrilled with the Vizio Smartcast experience. It was not fluid by any means, and I was a bit disappointed that the app selection is limited to only what is installed on the tv. Granted all of this can be remedied with a streaming media player, but at the expense of the user. As a side note most of the media platers are not capable of streaming Dolby Vision as of now (except for fires stick 4k and Apple Tv 4k). Until I began experiencing an issue, I was overall extremely pleased with my purchase. 4K and HDR content looks great, and the Smartcast system was bearable, but it did have it's limitations. About 3 weeks after the purchase, I began noticing flashing horizontal lines that would appear, but only for an instant. They were at random times and I was unable to recreate them intentionally. It might do it 10 times in 2 minutes, or it might not do it for 4 hours. After noticing these it was impossible not to look for them, and eventually I was looking for flashing white lines more than enjoying the picture on the TV. After doing some reading, apparently this has been an issue with Vizio P series TV's for some time now, and although I have seen Vizio Support techs on the forums claiming the issue was fixed through a firmware update, I had it on a 2018 model with the latest firmware installed. After phoning Vizio Customer service, they acknowledged that it occasionally happens, but not that it was common. At this point the rep requested that I take a photo of the issue that was occuring. I explained that this occurred as quickly as a flash of lightning, and that it was erratic in it's timing. If I could have reproduced the issue and been waiting with a recording device I would have attempted this, but working all day then coming home to video the tv acting up did not jive well with me. Being an elite member, I still had time to return the TV before the deadline, so I did so and purchased a Sony X900F and I am pleased with it. I will admit that while I do enjoy the picture of my new set, I do not see a tremendous increase in picture quality from the Vizio. Personally for me, it was not worth taking the chance on getting another set, only to have issues occur after the return deadline. If my only chance at receiving support from Vizio was going to be trying to capture the issue on camera, then sending it to them to analyze, I preferred to try another manufacturer. Unfortunately that meant another bump up in price range as well... Overall I would still recommend this set based on the brilliant picture quality alone. As long as the set is working correctly and without any glitches I believe it would be quite difficult to find a better set for the money.

    4k is stunning

    This set replaces my aging HD TV. I have a small living room so I don't need a huge TV so the 55" is a good size. The TV picture seems very configurable. You can make a substantial set of changes to things like Brightness, Backlighting, Color, Sharpness and many more. Surely there will be some combination that you'll find to suite your taste. When you turn on the set all the inputs are set to Vivid. No doubt Vizio wants you to have your mouth open at how colorful the picture can be. That setting is great when you are viewing landscapes but not so good when viewing people. Each input (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc) remembers it's picture setting. This is outstanding when you have a game console hooked up because you'll have a different setting for it than you would for your Blu-ray player vs. TV. This model has all the bells and whistles for the latest technology. 4k (Ultra HD), HDR, Dolby Vision. Because this set has Smartcast, you'll be able to take advantage of all of that using several of the included streaming services. I'm seeing that all of this works using Amazon and YouTube but I seem to be having a problem with Netflix. The TV Info is saying it understands Dolby Vision but it's not saying it's showing 4k Ultra HD. The picture looks great but I don't know why it won't show the right setting. I'm a little disappointed in Smartcast. The TV comes with about a dozen installed apps. First, that's all you get. Going to their "store" shows there is nothing else available. Second, there is no ability to reorder them. I watch YouTube daily but that app is about 7th in the order so I have to do a lot of scrolling to get to it. It seems like Vizio limited the apps in Smartcast because this model has Chromecast built in. After playing with it a bit, it generally works very well. Connecting my phone to the TV was really no issue. As has been the case though using the Chromecast dongle, eventually you run into a problem keeping the connection. One of my favorite features on this set is the 5 HDMI ports. It's about time! I'm also very happy with not only the bezeless design, but finally the Vizio name doesn't illuminate! The sound on the set is good. There are a couple of back facing speakers but volume hasn't been an issue. It certainly doesn't have any kind of thumping bass but it's got enough. It also has a surround sound setting and surprisingly you do seem to hear some sounds that seem eminate from areas other than the front of the TV. The bottom line though all comes down to the image. I'm really happy with the images I'm seeing. Nice brightness, good color on people's faces, good contrast. The source does matter though. You'll watch a few shows that are stunning and then change to a show where it's nice but you can see the softness in picture. Hookup a 4k Blu-ray player, get some 4k blu-rays and you are set. 4k is amazing what you see. It's so sharp you can see when a guy has missed a spot when they shaved!
