Vizio SV421XVT 42-inch LCD


The Vizio SV421XVT has a 42-inch screen, a 240Hz refresh rate, and multimedia playback from USB drives, all for an estimated street price of $900 (as of 9/25/2009). But poorly rendered detail and color, plus problems with digital artifacts, mar the...

Excelent remote control ; Low price

Images marred by digital artifacts ; Can't turn off illuminated logo on bezel

While it put up good numbers all-around, this 42-inch, 240Hz set had a hard time displaying fine details.

Vizio SV471XVT HDTV Review - Intro


The $1499 Vizio SV471XVT is an update to the SV470XVT, which was one of last years top performers. And this new display is very similar, with the addition of a USB port. We found that performance was mostly unchanged from the SV470XVT, with the...

The SV471XVT is a minor upgrade from the SV470XVT in many ways; the performance is similar and the feature set is very close. The only minor changes are a slightly brighter screen, an increase in the refresh rate to 240Hz and the addition of a USB port...

Review: Vizio SV471XVT HDTV


This 47-inch HDTV with multimedia capabilities has an estimated street price of $1200, which sounds good. But there are major compromises to be made with image quality.

Excellent remote control

Can't turn off illuminated logo on bezel ; Images marred by digital artifacts

Our test jury was not particularly impressed with the SV471XVT’s picture clarity: The TV struggled with moving objects on screen, and occasionally had trouble with still objects, too—it displayed plenty of digital artifacts and pixelation in lab's...

VIZIO SV471XVT 47-Inch 1080p LCD HDTVReview


This 47-inch LCD flat panel continues VIZIO's tradition of bringing affordable, big-screen HDTV to the masses. Just don't get stuck sitting off to the side.

Despite the hard time it had with a few of the HQV torture tests and its relatively narrow viewing angle, the SV471XVT is still a large and attractive display that's capable of delivering tremendous color and clarity with high definition programming....

The SV471XVT is a 47-inch HDTV that continues Vizios winning streak of providing decent performance at a great price. Atlhough this update to the popular SV470XVT HDTV is not the top of the heap in performance terms, it is good value for money at...

The screen itself is on the large side of things: it is about 4 inches deep and weighs about 44 pounds. It eschews the trend for thinner screens because it uses conventional CCFL (Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp) backlights rather then the up and coming...

Vizio E471VLE


The Vizio E471VLE is one of the thicker LCD TVs on the market and does not offer the best picture quality, but don't count it out of the running quite yet; its low price and a large number of picture adjustments are nothing to shake a stick at. The...

This LCD TV has an appealing picture-frame look to it

It only has three HDMI ports and one component cable, and it entirely lacks internet connectivity

We like this TV for the great support system available online and for its unique design. Unfortunately, it has mediocre picture quality and no internet connectivity.
