Vizio Via 2XVT review: Vizio Via 2XVT


Less expensive than other local dimming LED-based LCDs; reproduces relatively deep black levels; excellent bright-room performance; controls blooming well; solid uniformity; black areas have neutral color; superb streaming and widget content via...

Uneven grayscale leads to less accurate color; backlight fluctuates with program content; couldn't handle 1080p/24 content properly; poor off-angle viewing; fewer picture controls than some high-end HDTVs; less impressive Wi-Fi performance; chunky...

The Vizio 2XVT series offers the best Internet experience we've tested and very good image quality, all for a price that makes other high-end HDTVs seem expensive.

Vizio SV422XVT LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro


The Vizio SV422XVT is a 42-inch LCD HDTV in their premium XVT range of displays. It's also the first TV from Vizio to include support for Widgets, small programs that run on the display and grab information from the Internet, including Twitter posts,...

The Vizio SV422XVT looks to be a promising 42-inch LCD HDTV. Although we remain unconvinced about the usefulness of the widgets (or Vizio Internet Applications, as Vizio refers to them), they could be a useful feature for news or stock junkies. And the...

Consumer review by: FrkyDkyDutch (



This television was suppose to go into the command center, but I bought the 42-inch version of this television the week before. The wife noticed and had me swap them out. They both work wonders, but the 42-inch has a 120 kHz refresh rate.

This television came with everything necessary to use in a command center (a.k.a. man cave). The picture quality is so clear, consise and vibrate it blew me away ; It also has more than enough inputs to please any gamer/electronic geek to include 1...

For gamers, you might notice a slight lag delay. You can fix this easily. You go into the main menu, change the layout to wide screen and then turn the "Game Mode" on in the Settings Menu ; Would have been great if these settings saved, but you have to...
