Think about this for a minute. You can now get 55 inches of glorious 1080p high definition television for less than $1,000. Much less in fact, since with today’s $502 rebate, you can get the VIZIO E550VA 55-inch set for $897.99. Yeah, 900 bucks. For that price you get 1080p Full HD, 120Hz refresh rate, SRS TruSurround HD audio, Ambient Light Sensor, 50000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 4 HDMI inputs, two 15W built-in speakers, and more.
VIZIO is a brand that built a name for itself by offering reasonably priced TV sets with competitive quality. This is reflected in their impressive growth that went from $600,000 in revenues and three employees in 2002 to an estimated $2Billion+ in 2007, according to Wikipedia.
