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!

If you're sitting within a -30 degree to +30 degree angle perpendicular to the TV, it is amazing. The picture is clear, the contrast is great, and this is where LED performs best. Even though the tech specs say this TV has a viewing angle of -178 to +178 degrees, it doesn't say that the image would be consistent throughout. Straight on, it looks perfect; but from an angle, the blacks become brighter and turn grayish. At a wide angle, the color remains the same, but blacks do not. Also, straight on you have a matte screen; at an angle, it turns into a glossy screen. I find this very strange, and have not experienced this anywhere else. I've also noticed if you have white text on black background, viewing from a wide angle will create a "halo" effect around the text; of course, moving to the center will eliminate this halo. I don't know if this is a side effect of LED backlit screens, but I just find these to be slightly annoying. It really doesn't deter me much, and not noticeable to most viewers. I can live with it because it performs better in other areas. Avatar on Blu-ray looks incredible on this TV. 240hz make it looks more surreal than real-life, so I turn that down a bit.

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).

Was worth the wait! Nice deep blacks and bright whites for a super clear picture. Rich colors, but most impressed by the life like motion. 240hz makes a difference. I really wanted true LED back lit because the edge lit versions from the other brands at the same price appeared a little washed out. To get the same quality on a more well known brand like sony or samsung you'll need to spend about $600 more. Internet apps are cool, but not sure how much I'll use
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.

I pre-ordered this item in July and I knew the wait was going to be long, but it was WELL worth it! Amazing deal for the quality of this TV, which has eliminated lots of the inputs that are quite old now, leaving only HDMI / USB / Composite inputs. The video quality is TRULY amazing. I simply loved it. Also, since I didn't want to get a Home Theather, I made sure I would get a TV with a decent sound system and this one definitely has it! Most of the complaints for other TVs is on the audio (unless you have a home theather) and this one is quite good. The only small drawback is that some of the Internet Applications do not respond well to the remote control, and you can't choose some of the options from the menus. Other than that, this is a great quality TV for a SUPERB price! Highly recommended..

I got one of these at Costco before Christmas with their $200 off promo. So it was 1099.99 but throw in tax and the recycle fee you're looking at $1238.00 This is a an awesome TV for the money.

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!!!
