Yeah, you can. I bought a new 55 last week. I was in the same boat as you but I found a 55 inch Samsung that was 3d and SMART for the same price as what i could get a 60 normal for. It's also 240 hz which may or may not matter. I bought one of the first Vizio SMART TVs and it sucked so I vowed that I wouldn't get another one until I had to but the functions are way better on this tv. The Samsung also has a separate pointer type control to use it. It's nice not having to screw with my Xbox One to do those things. Of course this is also coming from the lazy *** who thinks it's downright awesome I don't have to pick up a remote to change my tv channel.
This is what I got but it was cheaper last week.
What didn't you like about the Vizio? We have had a Vizio 42" for like 3 years now and we haven't had any issues. Was it just the SMART stuff that didn't work well?
My older Vizio's smart apps, mostly Netflix, is super sluggish and has a really stupid interface, I never even bother using it. The new one is really snappy and uses the same interface as the website, much improved.Yeah, just the smart stuff. The rest is fine. The problem was I got that one because it was a smart tv and I had no other devices. It was really slow and for some reason it didn't stream as well as my Amazon Fire or my xbox in the other room.
