Vizio 55” 4K Ultra HD LED TV with Built-In Chromecast (Refurbished)
From DVDs and Blu-rays to streaming apps and gaming systems, this versatile HDTV keeps the entertainment rolling in stunningly realistic 4K Ultra HD resolution. Hook it up to a suite of devices with the four HDMI ports, or download the SmartCast mobile app to peruse never-ending streaming content on the built-in Chromecast.
Mobile Content on the Big Screen
Don’t ask friends to huddle around a little smartphone screen when you want to share a hilarious video—just stream it to the TV via Chromecast. With the built-in streaming software, you can stream video from your smartphone, tablet, or PC to your TV with just a tap.
Easily enjoy your favorite shows and videos across a range of online sources. Chromecast works with mobile apps for Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO, Hulu, and other media streaming services. Because it is connected to your home WiFi, Chromecast automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps.
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.
HDMI and USB: Connect to More Content
An HDMI port connects high-definition components such as a Blu-ray player, cable box, or Roku Streaming Stick directly to your HDTV. USB input pushes your TV’s connectivity even further, letting you do things such as view photos or listen to music saved on thumb drives, digital cameras, and other USB sources.

Vizio launched in 2002, when rival companies had already been selling TVs for decades. Despite being a relative newcomer to the TV market, Vizio 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 many 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.
