Yea I read a lot of reviews on the vizios being poor. I just never liked sony but the r550 looked pretty damn good in best buy and pc Richard. I'm just hoping for a bright picture and being able to play Xbox on it. I'm sure the r550 will be good enough for my needs. Thank you
Well there's LOTS of people that dump on Vizio cause they're not a "name brand" or because they expect Vizio to be some secret holy grail electronics brand. I have a couple Vizio products(22" LED and a 5.1 surround system) that I've had for over 2 years that I've never had issues with. However always remember no matter what the product is some are going to be lemons...there's no getting away from that, no matter what the brand is! I will say I whole heartedly trust 50+ year established brands like Sony or Panasonic the most, never been disappointed by any of their products once! As far as gaming goes I have yet to read a single review of poor gaming performance on this or any 2013 Sony TV, after all Sony makes the PS3/PS4 and you better believe they want you enjoying gaming on a Sony TV!
