**This is the absolute best choice if you are looking for quality and best price. It has true HD, blue ray capabilities, 1080p, and it is AMERICAN!!! This Vizio has excellent picture clarity. Even when you stand directly from the side of it, you can still see it, some other higher priced brands didn't have that. Also the lcd has way less glare on the screen than plasma.**

Visio has a good warranty and great customer service.

Very simply put this is a great TV for the price.  With that said I did have problems with it. My picture went out and so did the sound.

Very simply put this is a great TV for the price.  With that said I did have problems with it. My picture went out and so did the sound. 

However as bad as that sounds Visio made up for it fast.  I had company coming to town so I was mortified.  Long story short with-in 1 day I had a tech come out (for free of course) and not only fix the problem but he checked over everything and replaced the speakers and anything else that even might be wrong.  This tech also called shortly there after to check and make sure there were no other problems.

Decent TV for it's Category

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

This is a decent flat screen TV, has a few issues though, not sure if it was worth the cost.

Picture Quality
This TV has a great picture, really clear and very nice to watch.

Sound Quality
Sound quality was pretty good. Not quite as good as a set of fancy speakers, but still I was very happy with the sound, it felt like I was able to hear all the little details in the music and sound effects quite well.

Durability
Not so great on the durability. I feel like the plastic is too thin or soft, it just doesn't seem like this TV is meant to hold up for all that long. The remote is particularly low in quality and didn't last very long. The buttons started to stick and made it hard to change the channel. We had to get a universal remote which was better quality.

Design
Good design for wall mount or table. Wall mount seems like what the manufacturer had in mind.

Performance
Programming this TV was a HUGE pain. I would not call this a user friendly product at all when it comes to just setting it up and getting it going. And if there are any glitches and you have to reset things, it's a huge hassle. I really struggled even though I had the manual out and was trying to follow the directions.

Good TV

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

Purchased this TV in October of 2007. Now its December 2013 and it just went out so I got 6 years out of it with no issues. Repair people want to replace the panel but I figure it would be best to purchase a new tv due to the cost of repair.

Sound Quality
has a built in sound bar

Vizio 47" Hi-Def Flat Panel TV

By 

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

Bought this Vizio to replace an older 42" flat screen that just died. Spent several weeks reserching diffrent makes. Was almost sold on plassma but chickened out due to burn in. saw this at Wal-Mart and the picture and price just floored me. Got it home and set it up. Set up instructions are easy to follow and written in plain english. Hooked it all up and **WOW . **What a great picture. Personalizing was a snap. Simple remote, was tempted to buy the 3.1 ssound bar but choose to wait, glad I did. Great sound, without the addition of the sound bar or my bigger souround sound system. This is really a great buy even if you are not handy with tools and wiring. It even comes with its own screw driver. I Had heard alot of good things about this brand now i know why. Planing on getting a smaller one for our bedroom. All in all one of my better purchases.

This Vizio is a steal at this price!

By 

from Peabody, MA

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

When buying a TV, it's easy to get confused with all of the different numbers and options, but the two most important are the size and the price. In that regard, this Vizio has just about the best possible combination, along with several other worthy features.

For most people, a TV larger than 47 inches isn't really necessary, so this size gets you a great picture for television, as well as Blu Rays and videogames. The fact that it's a 1080p set means that you're getting the highest possible resolution for all of the content you could throw at it. Also, its color levels and refresh rate are good enough to enjoy sports and movies with fast motion, which was often a problem with earlier LCDs, but those concerns can be allayed with this set.

Part of screen turns black

By 

from Dayton, OH

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

I'm very disappointed in this television.  Right in the middle of watching something the left side of the screen turns black.  This tv is only 2 years old.  Very expensive and can't afford to replace now.

I've had my TV for quite a while and

By 

from Rigby, ID

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

so far, so good.  This television is so great as far as quality and durability.  This television is a one in a million buy as well.  It was a great value with a lot of pluses.  I'm not exactly sure of all the attachments that come with this television, but it has a wide range of plugins that you can hook up to this and it makes for a great watching experience.  The color is amazing and it's rich with great speakers that sounds like sound surround.  The remote is easy to navigate and the sleep timer is a godsend.  This television is used a lot as it's our main television.  It's often hooked up to a Wii or an X-Box360.  I remember taking it out of the box and it's light weight and easy to move for dusting and cleaning.  It can easily be wall mounted for a little extra modern decor, or sit on a table that makes a wonderful statement.  I love this television.  It's not given us a moments trouble.

Very good picture quality

By 

from Vernal, UT

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

The Vizio GV47L 47 Inch LCD tv is a great television. It has great picture quality and is great with blu ray movies and games. The speakers in this television are fairly OK. They can't get very loud without cracking a bit. But overall this is a great television. Vizio has really out done themselves with this television. The tv is fairly durable and has a thick plastic like screen that is easy to replace. Great for a home with kids and other hazards that may cause destruction to your television set. The television overall is great, it never gets hot. Another con to this is that when you use it with the lights off you can see the light coming out of the back of the screen and may hinder your viewing experience. The television works great with any cable or satellite programing and is easy to hook up to any accessories or gaming consoles. The television is lite and easy to install in your home, if you do not like where you have it, it is very easy to move.

one of the best tv's for the price

By 

from Jeanerette, LA

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

I brought this television for my bedroom because it is at a great price. I was not expecting the quality to be to great but I was really surprised. The color is brillant and the sound quality is remarkable. The Vizio is a great package for quality and price. The lady at the electronic store was trying to sell me a more popular name brand with a bigger price tag. I stuck my ground and brought this television any ways. She told me the quality of the televsion was not great and that since it is not a brand that is on the main stream market that it will most probably have problems in the long run. I brought it anyway because no one will be coming to my hosue to watch television in my bedroom and I was not paying an arm and leg for something that was just for me. Well it has been about three years and I still have no complaints what so ever. The picture and sound quality is just as great as the day I brought it. If you are looking for a television and don't want to pay big money for it this is your best bet.

This is the ultimate gift!

By 

from Vandergrift, PA

Comments about Vizio - 47-Inch LCD 1080p TV:

This Vizio 47" HDTV with 1080 P is the ultimate gift! This is a great tv with great picture, great sound & all around a great tv & the best gift. We have had an older model tv with the big huge box behind it & a smaller screen with grainy picture & now with the vizio 47" hdtv we have such a great picture, great sound, a lot less grainy and just an awesome picture! This is the best gift if people have the opportunity to get a good deal & great price this is the way to go! My hubby has been looking at tvs as christmas gifts and looking all around for the best prices, although we are great deal shoppers we aren't big on black friday crowds but this is a great tv even for the price without great black friday deals. Another awesome feature of this tv is the bright screen and the capabillity of running the movies ect... from the computer & netflix & the blue ray dvd players! We love this tv and would reccomend it to anyone!
