one of the walmart reviews:

I bought this TV around Black Friday but it was gone about a month later (and, unfortunately, minus $150 or so as I foolishly discarded the packaging).

I want to start by saying this isn't actually that bad of a TV...if you consider it purely as a "television". It's got bright colors, good audio, smooth motion, and reasonable viewing angle. If you wanted to put this in a living room to just watch cable, Blu-Rays, or Netflix you'd be getting a good value for your money. The images it produces are sharp and, if you lack a sound system, it has a good set of internal speakers.

HOWEVER...that isn't me, as the most critical arena for a TV to perform well in is its ability to play video games. I have every HD-compatible console under the sun and, for that, it was deemed unacceptable. For this TV in particular I had an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U hooked in so I had a broad range of games to test with and, frankly, it did not deliver.

The thing you need to care about here is display lag. Display lag describes the time it takes between pressing a button in a game and the TV's ability to process that input and display the result. Unfortunately, the only way to test this accurately is with a complex setup with a display that is confirmed to have zero input delay (like a CRT monitor), which I didn't have at hand. Rather I had to go by numbers generated from my Rock Band 3 setup, which produced something like 85ms latency. However, I think when properly adjusted, it's something closer to 55 (as Rock Band also has to deal with precise audio-video synchronization, which isn't as necessary in other genres). That said, according to DisplayLag.com (a site that maintains a database of TV display lag numbers), that just barely meets the criteria for "Okay", which means it might be alright for single-player games. As a person who enjoys playing online and fighting games, that isn't going to cut it. Particularly with fighting games, relative real-time inputs are a key necessity.

The TV has a "Game mode" that disables as much post-processing as possible (so smooth motion, noise reduction, etc.) but that's how I got my numbers above. If you don't use this mode you're looking at far higher display delays. This is something no other review mentioned (that Game mode does not reduce enough input delay to really make this worthwhile for serious game players) so it's why I felt it was important for me to throw my own sentiments into the ring.

All things considered, I really wanted to like this TV. It's big and it's got solid picture quality but at the end of the day, if you like video games, you need to find another TV. Only the most casual of players would find this TV mostly acceptable (and even then, knowing the types of games casuals play such as FIFA or Madden, you're still probably in for a bumpy ride). I'm sad that I wasted money on this to find it out but I'm glad I was able to pass on my experience to you. My suggestion for game players would be to spring for the slightly more expensive Vizio E55-C2 TV if you're in the market for a 1080p, 120hz native 55" TV. I have a C1 and, while I can't directly speak for the C2, it has proven to be nearly (if not accurately) input-perfect display (while still retaining admirable picture quality necessary to be a TV of other uses beyond video games). I would definitely give that a shot and I would say pass on this. But if you want a TV for purely viewing media, you would find this to be a good value.

NOTE: I did not test the "smart" functions that other people have claimed this TV is weak on as my video game consoles/attached HTPC are able to service all the functionalities of a smart TV (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, etc.). My use of this TV was purely as a display. Consider their advice if you intend to use the smart functions with no other backup solution before buying.
whatever man, just take my word for it...bought this TV for $38.72 off amazon prime with same day drone delivery. I coupled with a 10% movers coupon, and the "Bernie sanders for president" coupon code, which brought the socialized price down to -$104.23. it also came with a free add-on item of 1lb pure pineapple express.
