An inexpensive, mid-range LED TV that’s odd in every way.

Calibration

Calibrating the VIZIO E552VLE proved to be a fairly easy task, and we were able to maximize its performance in the areas of contrast and color without any trouble (thanks, DisplayMate!) Calibrating in Movie mode, we made a few small but key changes to the TV's standard settings. You can see the standard settings, and our final calibration, in the chart below.

All of our calibration is done in conjunction with the DisplayMate software.

Video Modes

This TV has a lot of Video Modes. We might call it overkill, but there are 9 total.
