5 stars when we bought it. (Nov 2010)
1 or 0 stars now, 4 months later. (late March 2011)
4 stars now only because of the updating that causes the screen to go black in the first 3-4 months. (July 2011)
4.8 Stars (Nov 2011 review edit)
5+ stars (Jan 2012 -see revised edit below)
We have been looking for a new TV for quite some time, thinking we would go with a 47" LCD. But then we happened to see some of the new LED TV's which took us on a whole new quest. And this is where we ended up. With the Vizio xvt473sv. The picture is just fabulous. I can't begin to stress that. We are not young folks by any stretch of the imagination. 3D didn't interest us. (It's fun at the theater but I don't want to watch it at home.) But this TV has true LED, with true back-lighting (not just edge lighting) and it's beyond terrific for viewing.
The pictures are sharp and crisp. Like when you're at the eye doctor and he says, "Which is better, A or B?" And B jumps out at you because it is like the best you've ever seen? Well folks, that's this television. Not kidding.
We have only had it for one week so I can't yet comment on the internet apps. Everything else is hooked up now - sorry, we work and only have limited time in the evenings - but so far it all works flawlessly. Our bonanza was discovering that we get HD channels for free because this TV has an integrated quam tuner. I'm no tech geek and I have no idea what that is but that's what the nice cable lady told me. (And because it's so new we've had to make our own list of HD channels because we live in the boonies and our cable folks don't have the list for our area yet.) AM I complaining??? No way!Read more ›
The in-menu interface is not as pretty or fluid as other counterparts, but it works good enough. The remote with slide-out keyboard is pretty useful if you use a lot of internet apps. I use Netflix and Pandora the most, but Twitter and Facebook are also available, as well as many more in the future... I'm still waiting on Hulu to release an app. The remote also connects via Bluetooth, so it does not need a line of sight, and can be operated up to 30 feet away (very useful to changing to the next song on Netflix if listening from another room).Read more ›
them since my panasonic blu-ray has this too and seems to handle video more smoothly from the web.
I pre-ordered for $1399. All in all a great deal for high end non-3D LED tv.
Amazing color, contrast and brightness... With a feature list that contains everything new technology out there, its impossible to come up with a better TV for the money.
A few features you will not see on lesser priced (and some higher priced) TVs:
Full LED Back-lighting -
Simply put this tv can really be watched in direct sunlight. I was noticing the other day when the sun came in the living room window, that half the screen had the sun shining on it. I couldn't tell the difference with the picture. The SUN cannot wash out this picture, amazing!
Internet Apps -
Pandora Internet Radio, Netflix, etc. Work great with the built in dual-band WI-FI. Smooth!
240 Hz Smooth Motion -
So fast I sometimes turn it off because it almost looks too "crisp."
I own a PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and have connected them all to this TV with awesome results. If you are a gamer or looking for a HDTV to connect your PC to, take the jump!!!
