Stand/Mount


The stand of the SV471XVT is a simple, straightforward affair that comes connected to the display. It can be removed if you want to use an optional wall mount, and there are stadnard VESA mounting points on the back of the screen.

Remote Control


The remote control that comes with the SV471XVT is a long, thin model that we found to be resonably comfortable to use.

In The Box*(7.0)*


Vizio provides a decent selection of accessories in the box. As well as the display itself, you get the remote, a manual, a quick-start guide, a cleaning cloth and a metal strap that can be used to secure the display to the wall so it won't fall over if the earth moves. No HDMI or analog video cables are included, though.

 

Aesthetics*(6.0)*


The SV471XVT shares the same clean, simple design of its predecessor, which doesn't impede the function of the display. Our only major issues are with the backlit VIZIO logo (which can be turned off) and the shiny finish of the bezel, which can show reflections.
