- Doesn't work well with antenna Review by Philly2
Most of the channels work great with antenna, but, an antenna booster is needed for some. HD does not receive a clear signal when using an intenna. I connected conversion box from analog tv and scanned and those channels are clear.

- 5 Stars - Great TV, Great Price Review by Lou
My 1st Vizio and wow was I impressed. I had always thought Sony was the cream of the crop, but this Vizio leaves Sonys, which don't even have PIP in this class, in the dust. Picture, color and sound are fantastic. That coupled with all the fine tuning adjustments available make this a perfect set, particularly since I got a smoking deal on it at Sam's Club Auctions -- $580, incl. S&H and sales tax.

- Impressive Review by Mike
Best bang for your buck! My friends and family are all impressed at the picture and sound quality especially with HD. I was given a Blu Ray player for Christmas this year and am blown away. My mother in law was so impressed with ours she went out and bought one for herself. Don't even bother shopping. The only decision you need to make is which Vizio model works for you.

- Top Notch Review by Bubba
I've had this set for 2 months and I'm very pleased with everything it has to offer.I'm especially pleased with the HD quality.The picture is so clean that you would swear you are there!I'm an avid sports fan who loves football & baseball.This Vizio is the cat's meow!
I purchased this set @ B.J.s in Torrington Ct. for 900.00 and change.My only concern after reading some of the other reviews is how long it will last and customer support.
I bye American made products whenever I can and always have.The main reason is because the quality was always better.The other reason is to help my fellow Americans stay employed.Most of us take pride in all we do.

I'm almost an oldtimer now and was not really interested in HDTV...then my son bought me the Vizio SV420XVT last Christmas and WOW...This set is FANTASTIC!!! I have NEVER seen the older movies I watch in 3-D before...and without Blu-ray!!! I'm so impressed with this unit that if I do try Blu-ray it WILL be a Vizio! I highly recommend this product - keep up the great work Vizio!!!

- Great set - Top of the line product Review by Frank Zak
The SV420XVT1A is a top of the line set. While shopping for a 42” set during January 2009 a number of sales clerks tried to sell me more expensive sets claiming you only get what you pay for. Feature for feature the Vizio seemed to outshine the other sets on display so I purchased the set saving upward to $1,000 on other sets sales clerks tried to sell me.
We have been so satisfied with the set that I purchased a 19” VA19L10T in June for my home office that has been operating trouble free since it was purchased doubling as a TV and computer monitor. After watching and listening to our TV three of our relatives purchased a Vizio. All satisfied customers.

- Excellent TV, great price, makes old DVD's 10x better! Review by Troysoft
I was really wanting a 120hz, but didnt want to spend more than $600, well that was tough, they are all way over that price, I ended up grabbing this model on open box at Sam club for $589.00, what a bargin, it has been so amazing watching blue-rays, playing PS3 games and even makes old DVD's from the 90's look amazing and better becuase of the smooth motion. I got tired of watching the 120hz TV's at Costco and Sams club, it is such a big difference, I would recomend to annoying buying a TV to get the one with 120hz, its a but more money, but well worth it, many sales guys at Best Buy and Sams said it was not that big of deal, those guys are full of it, even non HD TV broadcast looks so much different, its like your their in the studio.
Vizio rocks, keep making great TV's at low prices!

- Love It! Review by martski
I purchased this television online at an eBay auction. I love this television, the sound, picture quality, and menu options are all excellent easy to use. I do not believe that you regret purchasing this television.

- Got a sweet deal! Review by Morgan
I had just bought this TV from Sears for $350 (floor model), and let me tell you I am overly impressed with my TV. The next day I did nothing but watch my new TV all day long just marvelling at the detail of whatever was showing on the TV! I am very happy with my Vizio!

- Wonderful TV Review by J3Company
We purchased this model from Sam's for $799 and couldn't believe how great of a price and the high quality of the picture. I am completed satified and would recommend that if you can find this model for this price or close to that it is worth it.

Dealerscope by By Steven Silver - August 6th, 2008 “The NBC Olympic relationship presents a unique opportunity to introduce VIZIO’S new XVT line to a massive audience of mainstream consumers tuning into the Olympics,” Vizio’s director of marketing, Jason Maciel, said as part of the announcement. The XVT line was announced last month, and is shipping now.READ MORE »

One/x opens Olympics with spot for Vizio. < br /> LOS ANGELES Newly formed One/x here is diving into the Olympics opening ceremony tonight with a commercial for high-definition television maker Vizio.
Called "Splash," the 30-second spot shows an athlete executing a spectacular slow-motion dive as a voiceover explains that the Vizio 1080 P display's 120-Hertz smooth-motion video feature yields impressive picture quality.
Jason Wulfsohn, One/x cd and also the spot's director, said the effort emphasizes the brand's superior technology -- a change of strategy from past ads that focused on price.
Wulfsohn, media director Ben Tiernan and account head Duffy Humbert founded One/x (meant to imply "inversion") earlier this year.
Vizio previously worked with production house Jam Media, which had employed Wulfsohn as a director. When the trio opened their boutique, they did so with Vizio as their founding -- and so far only -- client.
Earlier in his career, Wulfsohn had directed for Propaganda after he graduated with a film degree from the University of Southern California.
In 10 years at Omnicom's TBWA\Chiat\Day, Playa del Rey, Calif., Humbert worked on accounts ranging from ABC to Taco Bell, then moved to IPG's Deutsch, Marina del Rey, Calif. "I prefer the energy of small, entrepreneurial teams," she said.
Tiernan's resume includes stints at the West Coast operations of Aegis' Carat and Omnicom's OMD, where he worked on big brands like Adidas.
Wulfsohn intends to expand and contract the agency staff-wise based on client needs and he also plans to continue directing spots, he said.
Vizio spent $15 million on measured media in 2007, per Nielsen Monitor-Plus.

Vizio XVT also include Smooth Motion Technology and SRS TruSurroundXT that uses three built-in speakers to create virtual 5.1 and it can be upgraded to a full 5.1 setup with a set of wireless speakers and subwoofer for the best experience. Price of this best lcd TV: $1,200-$1,700.

Gear Patrol already established that it’s football season and asked whether you follow NFL or College football. We showed you that subscribing to DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket will advance your football consumption to dangerous awesome levels and winning a Titlecraft Fantasy Football Trophy is one of the best rewards for your virtual gridiron.
But we have yet to discuss the most important part of the in-home football experience. Your massive wall-hugging liquid crystal high definition television. The centerpiece of any football viewing endeavor. GP’s decided to equip our office (perks!) with the Vizio XVT we told you about two months ago.
Well, the XVT is finally on the market and we’ve thown down our 1400 bucks for the 47 inch VIZIO SV470XVT. Our retinas are eagerly awaiting an assault of retina burning 6,500:1 contrast ratio and ridiculously smooth 120hz refresh and 5ms response rates. Are we showing off? Yes, but it’s for your benefit.
Why? Because, if you haven’t noticed, that flat panel you’ve got hanging on your wall is probably like ours - it’s slow. Ever notice how images kind of ghost when things are moving quickly, like football for instance. That’s called the refresh rate and the new Vizio XVT LCD runs at 120hz, twice that of most flat panel televisions, using a technology called Smooth Motion Video Processing. All we care is that fast-action movies and sports never looked so buttery smooth. Best of all the new lowered price will fit in any mans ‘football budget’. We wouldn’t want you watching football on something subpar now would we?
Cost: $1399 @ Sams Club, Costco | $1899 @ Circuit City
