Vizio XVT473SV 47-Inch LCD TV


(Editor's note: This review of the Vizio XVT3SV series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 55-inch XVT553SV. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Supports Bluetooth remote and other peripherals ; Treats streaming video apps as a separate input

Surround sound lacks depth ; Remote control is a bit too big and thick

Though the Vizio XVT3SV isn't the best HDTV line we've seen, it's consistently above average.

The Hitachi Ultra Vision LE42S704 delivers decent picture quality and great audio at a good price if you're not set on Internet or robust multimedia support.

Vizio XVT553SV


If you're in the market for a big-screen HDTV with the latest technology but you have a limited budget, consider Vizio's XVT553SV ($2,199.99 list). No, it's not 3D-ready, and it won't win any style awards, but this 55-inch HDTV delivers a sharp,...

Good picture performance. Generous port selection. Handy Bluetooth remote with a full QWERTY keyboard

Some LED blooming. Slightly noisy SD picture. Doesn't swivel. Picture settings can only be adjusted via remote

Vizio's 55-inch XVT553SV LED HDTV delivers big-screen goodness and a strong feature set at a very reasonable price.

Quick Take: CNET did not review this member of the Vizio XVT3 series, but we did review the larger 55-inch screen size, model XVT553SV. The model we reviewed employs a different backlight technology--full-array LED with local dimming--compared with the...

Vizio XVT553SV


A Vizio in your living room might not have impressed your snobby videophile friends in the past, but the company known for budget LCDs is doing its best to change that. The XVT3SV series, Vizio's third attempt at using a full array of local dimming...

Less expensive than other local dimming LED-based LCDs; reproduces relatively deep black levels with very good shadow detail; accurate, well-saturated color; excellent bright-room performance; solid uniformity; superb streaming and widget content via...

More blooming than some local dimming LEDs; black areas tinged blue; couldn't handle 1080p/24 content properly; poor off-angle viewing; fewer picture controls than some high-end HDTVs; generic looks.

The Vizio XVT3SV series' excellent picture quality, thoughtful design, scads of features, and reasonable price combine to make it the best value among high-end LED-based LCD TVs today.

Vizio XVT553SV LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro


The Vizio XVT553SV ($2199 MSRP) is a pleasant surprise from the normally budget-oriented manufacturer. It's a good television, and what's even more surprising - it's a pretty cool television, too. It's got all the bells & whistles you'd find on a...

The Vizio XVT553SV ($2199 MSRP) is probably the first Vizio to actually impress us. It's a big 55-inch screen for a reasonable price, and it's loaded with great features: built-in WiFi, an excellent selection of streaming content, a great interface,...

XVT" signals the best of the best in Vizio's LED lineup, both in performance and features. The new 47-inch XVT473SV uses a full-array LED backlight system with local dimming, and it boasts features like 240Hz SPS, the VIA Web platform, and integrated...

One of the primary issues with a full-array LED backlight systemthat uses local dimming is that, because the number of LEDs is not a1:1 ratio with the number of pixels, the lighting is imprecise. You'llsometimes notice a glow around bright items--for...

The Vizio XVT553SV is a 55-inch LCD TV that offers a lot of bells and whistles, but doesn't forget that performance should be at the core of any great TV. Unfortunately, Vizio has never put an emphasis on exterior design, so you'll have to contend with...

The TV features a limited array of online features (at least compared to the outstanding offerings from Sony), but you get Netflix, which is enough to satisfy most users. There's also built-in WiFi, so you don't have to worry about running an ethernet...
