Vizio has established itself as the best brand in bargain TVs, which isn't a back-handed compliment – their products are minor marvels of engineering. The 55-inch E550I-B2 maintains this tradition of low-cost excellence, with an image quality feature – called local LED dimming – that's normally found on the most expensive range of HD TVs. It automatically dims or brightens portions of the screen to adjust the contrast of whatever image is being displayed, making a bright light on one side of the screen pop, while the darker areas remains dark (instead of balancing out the entire screen to a muddy gray).
