Rtings mentions the feet on the 55" can be adjusted for narrow or wider. Anyone know if the same can be done for this 50"?

Nope! I have the 50" and there's only one setup for the feet!

I read that the 50" has 32 local dimming zones, but the 55 has 90 local dimming zones. Thats quite a bit of a difference. I myself am not too familiar with this since I have the TCL 5 series but FALD is one of the reasons I wanted to upgrade. I wonder if they dropped the price because Vizio is going to be releasing their TVs tomorrow ?

What was that price drop?
I purchased my 55inch H8G from Walmart for $453 back in early-May. For some reason it was $50 off retail when it was brand new, I was surprised. Came in, and I enjoy it very much. though it does have some issues

Main issues are the crashing and lag/stuttering while playing large file size movies (25-40GB files) via the built-in media player, and the sluggish interface. Also the TV has some major issues with the motion enhancement feature, tends to drop in and out and it's very noticeable when it changes while watching. Hopefully a firmware fixes that but I wouldn't count on it. Also, when the TV plays HDR content (1917 in this case which features bright white skies), I noticed a faint burning plastic smell which was very worrying when I got the TV, but has since gone away a little bit, and I'd need to be right next to it to detect it now. Some high-brightness (600+ nit TV's sometimes have this smell, I think Samsung and maybe even LG reported this similar issue so it's not specific to this specific brand I don't believe).

Other than that though, quality and brightness is great. This is a value-orientated TV and I'd say I got a lot of value from it, but if I wanted an actual premium experience, you'll only really get that with the TCL 8 series, LG OLED's, Samsung's QLEDs, and Sony's high-end lineup. The H9G, while better spec'ed, doesn't have HDMI 2.1 making its 120Hz rather useless since you can't utilize it for the next-gen consoles or as an high-refresh external PC monitor. The local dimming feature is great, blooming isn't that noticeable unless you're on the main menu, and it does a great job at enhancing contrast. More zones would obviously be better, but even having the full array local dimming option on a TV makes it so much better than not having it at all.

I'm happy with the purchase but with the issues that I deal with it (such as the stuttering, crashing and laggy interface), I can't make it an instant recommendation, but would rather say if you could look past these negatives to balance it with the outstanding cost ($350 for a quantum dot TV is nuts IMO), then it's a good choice.

If we can trust this source [androidpolice.com]...

The H8G Quantum features up to 90 local dimming zones, but that varies. The 75" and 65" models have the full 90 zones, the 55" model has 72 zones, and the 50" model has 32.
