Vizio SV470XVT LCD HDTV Review

We were quite impressed at how well the Vizio SV470XVT LCD HDTV performed in our tests of whites, colors and motion.

47 in.


The Vizio SV470XVT is a 47-inch LCD HDTV that is priced at the lower end of the range for this size. Available for around $1400 it sports some high-end features like 120Hz refresh rate. We found the Vizio SV470XVT performed admirably in most of our tests and should represent a good value for most people looking for a budget TV in this size range.
