Overall very nice picture.
Very easy to setup.
First Vizio models to include 120Hz technology to effectively reduce motion blur.
The Smooth Motion dejudder technology has multiple setup options to tailor the effect to your liking.
Plenty of HDcapable video connections.
Delivers an outstanding picture at a reasonable price.
Customizable settings for most aspects of audio and video.
Noticeable tearing at times.
Not enough inputs really.
Everything can look live live TV, not a good thing at times.
Remote doesn’t work all of the time for some reason.
Crowded input area.
The TVs viewing angle and black level are only average.
The SV470XVT does not offer digital media ports like USB or Ethernet.
The look of the 24fps/120Hz "Smooth Motion" interpolation is not for everyone.
One of the most frustratingly temperamental remotes Ive ever used.
Two rear HDMI ports difficult to see/reach, and two on the side.

The Vizio SV470XVT1A is a great value, considering the low price and the big, 47-inch screen. It's strategies like that that have made Vizio one of the biggest players in North American television sales. Before you leap, however, you should know...-

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...80

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...-

I quite enjoyed working with the VIZIO HDTV, Sherwood Blu-ray player and the Accell HDMI cable, and I recommend considering these excellent devices for your home theater set-up. I love movies, and this is an affordable way to have a terrific...-

VIZIO might just be swinging for the fences with their serious SV470XVT LCD, which ups the ante with a 120Hz refresh rate and the onboard controls to back it up. While I cant quite declare it a home run, its video prowess and competitive price point...75

Whenever the economy takes its inevitable cyclical trip southward, consumers make compromises, and they also start shopping around to find better deals. You might have had your eye on a Lexus, but those new Hondas all of a sudden look good. A new iPhone...-

Vizios TVs often lead in price and image quality, and this model is no exception: At $1100 (as of November 4, 2008), the SV420XVT is the least-expensive 120-Hz LCD weve seen. And it finished ahead of such competing 42-inch models as the LG 42PG25,...78

Budget meets high-end with Vizios new XVT line. The bargain powerhouses at Vizio rolled out a fleet of high-powered LCD TVs, ranging up to 47 inches in size and including a lot of the same features that you find in flat-panels from Samsung, Sony...84

The VIZIO SV420XVT is a high performance sports car that can deliver top notch picture quality. But like a race car, you will have to get under the hood occasionally to tune it for different road conditions. If you don't like getting your hands...-

The SV420VXT is one of their latest models, and comes equipped with all of the must have bells and whistles, including 1080p resolution, 120 Hz refresh for improved motion rendering, and four (yes, four!) HDMI inputs. Given how...-
