Summary: I love my TV 47" Vizio 240hz just great, I am able to see my Laker games life like. For the price I got it for its like I purchased one of the lakers front seats, but the difference is, I can watch my games all season long.
Summary: Buying refurbished electronics is the way to go if you are buying a TV or related product. People return electronic products to vendors all the time for mostly ridiculous reasons. Manufacturers then reinspect the returns and resell them at reduced prices as they are no longer "new". My recent VIZIO purchase of a SV471XVT LCD Television was a screaming bargain particularly considering it incorporates a 240HZ refresh rate.
Summary: Was hesitant upon ordering a refurbished tv. Caustiously watched programs and sporting events and was pleased looking for any flaw. After having it a while really am impressed with the quality of picture and appearance. Extremely happy and satisfied with the tv while watching the Lakers win their 2nd title in a row.
Summary: After fighting this urge I broke down and bought my first HDTV. So nice. Colors vivid, Sound is good enough. I hooked up a ion computer and a roku box. It's like night and day with my old tube tv. We played 720p episodes of the Office and Better off Ted and the motion capture was so smooth. We tried some compressed blu ray images and they played beautifully. Smooth frame rates. Animated videos such as 1080p Pixar films were wonderful even with compression.
Great TV but don't order it through AMAZON..it will be refurbished even if you buy it new

Summary: I have an invoice in hand that says I bought this TV new from Amazon.com and waited 2 weeks even having to drive to the grocery store and meet the deliver guy cause he said his truck was too big to turn the corner of my block. Once we got it we realized with the huge stickers on the box that it was refurbished.
Great value and excellent HDTV until 3D is perfected!!

Summary: Bought this item from Amazon with free shipping and no tax. There was great communication via email and phone regarding the shipping status and arranging the delivery from CEVA. The VIZIO SV471XVT arrived 4 days after the transaction in excellent condition. The delivery men described for me on how to open the box by removing the 4 plastic clip holders without cutting the box. I was told to keep the box for 30 days in case I need to return the unit.
Summary: This is our first Vizio TV. Has excellent color. Hoping this will last a very long time. Very attractive: UPDATE: 5/20/10 Well the Vizio was delivered on 2/20/10. Picture went out 5/8/10. Sure didn't last very long. Vizio was unable to repair the set. Now they say they will replace it with a recertified model. It may be their option but it lasted such a short while I believe they should replace it with a brand new one.
Summary: I placed my order on 2/23 and received it on 2/25, not too shabby for free shipping. Once I pulled my head out of my butt, set up was pretty darn easy. Even with a standard definition satellite signal the picture looks great, and after testing a few fast action dvd's on a sony up-convert dvd player, I'm sold. I'm really looking forward for Dish Network to get here tomorrow to upgrade my sat receiver with their fancy hi-def version.
Summary: I love this TV. I purchased a Vizio 42" LCD TV about 4 years ago, it has worked flawlessly to this day, but I decided to replace it with the new 47"XVT. I am amazed at the quality all around! Great Picture, easy to use, lots of connections and looks great on my Entertainment center... I have been using an up-convert dvd player with the old 42" Vizio and had great quality(or so I thought), but With the new 47"XVT, I cannot believe how great the standard dvd player looks!
