Quick Take: Vizio VF550M

CNET did not review the Vizio VF550M, but we did review a similar model with nearly identical specs.

Although CNET did not review the Vizio VF550M, we did review the VF550XVT, a similar 55-inch LCD that has nearly identical specs. According to the specification section on Vizio's Web site, the main difference between the two is in their color temperature presets (the VF550M's presets are generally bluer, although that shouldn't affect post-calibration color temperature). The VF550M also has a black speaker bar, as opposed to the XVT's silver one.

Judging from the Web site, we expect the picture quality of the two TVs to be very similar. For more information, see the full review of the Vizio VF550XVT.
