The Vizio SV470XVT is not a bad choice for the price of it, youre most likely not going to find a 120Hz HDTV for this price from any other manufacturer. Vizio has done well with this HDTV, though there are some improvements that could be made to...

Vizio has wisely chosen to enter the 120Hz market, and the SV470XVT represents one of the best deals in town for a 47-inch, 1080p HDTV with a 120Hz frame rate. Its features and connection options arent quite as generous as those of some higher-end...

Vizio has always intrigued me. And their top of the line SV470XVT 47-inch LCD TV is no exception. Its the brand I get asked about the most - probably because its available in a majority of big box stores like SAMs, Costco and Sears. Heck, even Dell...
