Bought 55" Vizio TV. Box and advertisement showed Internet.

Even the associate at WalMart said "just get a wireless keyboard and mouse and plug into the USB port on the TV." True it connects to internet but only to preselected sites, most costing $$$. No internet browser whatsoever. Cannot check email, search for anything at all. Of course it was more than ready to connect to Netflix or HuluPlus.

Also kinda funny in a way but sad at same time was the fact that the tv showed the weather in London, Paris,a dn other large cities around the globe on the Yahoo Weather App. However, the app had complete amnesia about my hometown. Could not browse internet but knew if I needed my umbrella in France. What a waste of time this has been.

Now gonna box the thing back up and take it right back. Did not realize that a tv advertised as Internet would not be able to actually access the real internet.

Review about: Vizio Tv.

Monetary Loss: $998.

You have access to a computer, so had every opportunity to read the M3D550KDE data sheet and manual BEFORE you purchased the set. Trusting a Wal-Mart employee, who does not represent Vizio in any official capacity, is ludicrous.

Nowhere does Vizio state you can browse the Internet nor that it has such capabilities. From their data sheet: "Vizio Internet Apps | Using the latest wireless technology you can easily connect to the Internet and stream your favorite movies and TV shows, listen to music, change your status on Facebook, send a Tweet and get the latest news, sports and weather.

It’s your entertainment, your way."

Take responsibility for your ill-informed purchased and stop blaming the manufacturer. Make an effort, do research then make an educated purchase.

You bought a TV, not a computer. You can hook a computer up to the TV if that's what you were expecting.

vizio is like your wireless printer-a tool that information is sent to from your computer.I think you didn't understand what you were buying.
