I bought this tv about a week ago and have been really pleased. I previously had a 37" sharp 720p 60hz, and did not like it at all. Well after much research I had narrowed it down the Samsung LN46B750. Only problem is that tv is $1500+ dollars. So I wanted another choice and researched and for the price and quality, this Vizio is a no brainer. This XVT is Vizio's best model other than their new 55" LED.

Appearance: It looks really nice. Simple, clean, black and silver. Some people hate that the vizio light will stay orange when the tv turns off but its not really noticeable and doesn't bother me at all.

Sound: Definitely better than my old Sharp, but still nothing to write home about. I have some really nice Logitech 2.1 speakers I use if i'm really wanting the theatre experience but the built in speakers are fine.

Picture quality: This is where I was a HUGE stickler. I wanted at least 120hz, 1080p, and 4ms response time as I'm a gamer. Well this tv has all of those and even goes to 240 with the scanning backlight. The smooth motion when enabled (recommended low) is a little jarring at first, but you quickly get used to it. Not only does smooth motion help with blur, it seems to just make the entire image on screen more crisp whether its moving or not. Very pleased. Watching Dexter on showtime hd was AMAZING! The detail in the intro is just jaw dropping. And this is only in 1080i. Xbox 360 really shows how crisp it can really get. I thought Dexter details were amazing, I hadn't seen nothing until I popped in Modern Warfare 2. Its a sight to be seen. The smooth motion works beautifully on videogames. No problems with blurring at all.

Okay, so I'm not going to write 20 paragraphs on why I like this TV vs. any other one I've tried. What I will say is that TV has a beautiful picture and looks fantastic with HD content. My PS3 games in 1080p make me drool just a little...

I originally purchased this TV at Sam's Club based on the price (Amazon was higher at the time), but that was a complete nightmare that still does not have a satisfactory resolution yet - Long Story. I now own this TV via Amazon and I'm very happy with the purchase. I bought it for $1,021.00 with free shipping and not tax from Amazon and I suggest you wait to buy it if the price is higher than that and from a third party vendor. Amazon rocks! and their customer service is superior to many others I've dealt with.

The remote is solid, picture is crisp, even during faster screen activity (240 Hz), and setting the functions (audio, video) is a piece of cake. Don't get blinded by name brands like Samsung and Sony... Yes, they make quality TV's, but you can get more for you money buying a Vizio and be just as happy with the performance.

Of course after writing this positive review, my TV will burn up tomorrow and never work I can only comment on how awesome the TV is after owning it for a week. Time will tell I suppose, but the Square Trade warranty I purchased will give me comfort just in case. =)

I placed my order on 2/23 and received it on 2/25, not too shabby for free shipping. Once I pulled my head out of my butt, set up was pretty darn easy. Even with a standard definition satellite signal the picture looks great, and after testing a few fast action dvd's on a sony up-convert dvd player, I'm sold. I'm really looking forward for Dish Network to get here tomorrow to upgrade my sat receiver with their fancy hi-def version.

I did my homework and studied just about every TV of this size and price range for months, and I have to say I am extremely satisfied with my choice.

My only issue is after seeing the picture quality, my buddy who was going to take my old 32" TV off my hands decided he was going to go out and buy a hi-def. Now I have to find something to with the darn thing.

I am going to buy Vizio's extended warranty just in case, but I would have done that with any other brand out there.

Bottom line, ordering was easy, shipping was very fast, the carrier was extremely helpful and ensured there was no damage to the TV and that it functioned as it was supposed to. The picture and sound quality is more than I expected, and the price didn't kill my budget. I highly recommend this TV. (not to mention Vizio is based in the United States, and I believe in supporting US companies, but that's just me.)

I love this TV. I purchased a Vizio 42" LCD TV about 4 years ago, it has worked flawlessly to this day, but I decided to replace it with the new 47"XVT. I am amazed at the quality all around! Great Picture, easy to use, lots of connections and looks great on my Entertainment center... I have been using an up-convert dvd player with the old 42" Vizio and had great quality(or so I thought), but With the new 47"XVT, I cannot believe how great the standard dvd player looks! The TV makes all the difference. I had no idea that my DVD player had such a great output. I also have a blue ray player that is very impressive with this TV. I am very pleased with this product. I am a Vizio customer for life! They do a great job of combining performance and price into a product that competes very well against the more expensive name brands.
