Vizio SV470XVT 47-Inch LCD HDTV Gets Reviewed
Vizio is definitely known as a second-rate HDTV manufacturer, but the company has worked hard to incorporate some high-end features in their XVT series while at the same time keeping prices low. CNET has put their 47-inch LCD model, SV470XVT, through the ringer and surprisingly it performs right up there with big boys in some areas of performance. Not only does the SV470XVT feature 120 Hz processing, but its color reproduction is excellent and the user interface is attractive and easy to use. It's no surprise that its black levels aren't quite as dark as models from Sony and Samsung, but overall it's the best performing Vizio model so far.

The secret is out. VIZIO definitely is as good as the big brands now with the technology they are releasing. As long as they are able to keep their prices down and their value high I'm sold, just don't go all high end on us! I love my SV420XVT and it looks better than my other tv thats a Sony.
Amazing tv. Great picture quality and brightness. I watch mostly movies and football, but my daughter plays her xbox on this too and everything looks spectacular. We had a Panasonic HD TV before and it just isn't the same. The 1080p and 120hz makes all the difference. You can see every little detail down to the makeup on the announcers faces - crazy! Very easy to set up and good warranty options too. Excellent price too.
