Tour & Design

**Front**

The front of the SV471XVT is dominated by the screen itself, but below this is a silver patch, and two speaker grilles on either side.

**Back**

We were not able to get a shot of the entire back of the SV471XVT, but the most significant feature is the panel that contains the input and output ports. These were not labelled on the pre-production unit that we looked at, but the layout of the final product will probably be the same.

**Sides**

Most of the action for the SV471XVT is on the left side of the case; that's where the controls and additional ports are located. The right side has no major features.

* Most of the interesting stuff on the SV471XVT is located on the left side of the case (the photo on the left)* []()**Stand/Mount** The stand of the SV471XVT is a simple plastic affair that does not allow for rotation or tilting the screen.  []()**Aesthetics** The SV471XVT has a mostly clean, straightforward design. Our only concern is that the shiny silver section between the speaker grilles might be a little distracting or might catch odd reflections.
