Vizio 55” 4K HDR Smart LED with 38” Vizio Sound Bar (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This 55” smart TV makes streaming thanks to the SmartCast interface and included tablet remote, which lets you navigate content with your fingertips and start playing shows with the tap of an icon. The 4K set is also bundled with a sound bar, which elevates the sound to match the sharp, vibrant images.
SmartCast: Entertainment at Your Fingertips
With the included tablet remote, watching your favorite TV shows, movies, and live sports is as easy as using a smartphone. On the tablet, you can navigate the vast libraries of popular streaming apps—including Netflix Hulu Plus, and YouTube—with your fingertips, and once you tap what you want to watch, it instantly starts playing on the big screen.
Rich, Cinematic Picture
4K Ultra HD resolution supports an almost uncannily realistic picture. 4K refers to Ultra HD’s more than 8 million pixels—about four times as many as 1080p Full HD resolution—which saturate the display so completely that images retain their lifelike detail regardless of how close or far you are from the screen. This pixel density also supports heightened picture quality for non-4K content.
Enhanced Brightness and Depth
LEDs boost brightness, creating a brilliant picture that’s easy to see whether you’re curled up for a late movie or getting ready for a noon kickoff. Striking black and white levels give images more pop, contribute to a more realistic sense of depth, and amplify shadows and other lighting effects. LEDs also consume little power, making them more energy efficient than other forms of display lighting.
Detailed Sound, Minimal Clutter
The bundled sound bar elevates your TV’s audio to give you an experience that’s closer to that of surround sound. Laterally placed speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. And with only one component to install, the 2.0-channel setup strikes a much cleaner look than full-blown home theater systems. Dolby Digital produces clear digital sound in everything from home theater systems to wireless headphones. Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music.

Launching in 2002, when rival companies had been selling TVs for decades, Vizio may be a relative newcomer to the TV market, but it hit the ground running. By 2007, it sold the most LCD TVs in America. Its runaway success is thanks in large part to its bread-and-butter HDTV, the LED-backlit 1080p set that can be found in most living rooms. Yet the company also takes chances on the latest technologies. In 2015, for instance, it launched what is arguably one of the most high-end sets ever produced—the $130,000 Reference Series, a 120” 4K set with support for more than one billion colors and integrated 5.1-channel surround sound. While the hefty price tag will deter most TV shoppers, Vizio will inevitably find a way to pack the cutting-edge technologies into a more consumer-friendly set—the approach to TV-making that brought it success in the first place.
