Conclusion

Vizio has a reputation for producing good value televisions, and the VF551XVT looks like it will probably continue the trend. We'll have to reserve judgment until we get the display into our labs for testing, but it looks like this display has the chops to produce good quality images with the LED backlight and the local dimming. And the price is definitely right: $1999.99 is a great price for a premium 55-inch LCD model. 

Note: Later this year we discovered that in addition to the VF551XVT with LED backlights and local dimming Vizio will also be releasing aVF552XVT that includes internet connectivity via ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi. This includes access to Yahoo widgets, Amazon on-demand and Netflix services.
