Vizio XVT373SV Review: 37” LED LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Vizio XVT373SV LED LCD TV. Vizio hasn’t reserved the goodies just for the high end models; the smaller sizes also get a decent share of features. This 37-inch model may be a bit small for the elite consumers but it suffices well as a second TV in their house for the kids’ room. In fact, it will fit in well in all those places where space is at a premium. Even for the display size of 37 inches, this TV has 1080p resolution. This is of course the best that can be offered by any manufacturer. It keeps the images looking really crisp and clear. The difference is noticeable if you compare it with any other 720p model.
You will not lose out on the Internet Apps feature by opting for this TV. Vizio has made sure that you can access some of the choicest sites on the Internet and enjoy the latest in music and videos through them. Rhapsody, Amazon Video on Demand and Yahoo widgets are supported by this TV and you can also get into social networking and hear the news and weather whenever you want. In fact, the choice of sites on this TV is so vast that you may not miss the Internet browser. The next generation of TVs might have that too and you will be able to use the TV as a computer more often than not.
Vizio XVT373SV Features and Specifications Review:
- 37-inch display
- 1080p resolution
- Internet Apps
- 4 HDMI
- TruSurround HD
- 120 Hz refresh rate
The refresh rate is a proper 120Hz in this set and has no SPS with it like in the larger models. This refresh rate can surely be expected to produce the best images possible with zero blurring. You can watch live shows of the Formula I Championships without any trailing in the images. The cars will whiz by in full color and clarity. The movies will also be a pleasure to watch on the Blu-ray disc player along with playing computer games on the gaming console. The contrast ratio and brightness are also optimized in this set which gives beautiful images with great black levels.
The sound effects of this TV are good too. With SRS TruSurround HD sound, you feel surrounded by phantom speakers from all sides and so you can hear every word spoken very distinctly. Vizio has also included TruVolume in this set which gets rid of volume fluctuations when you change channels or when you get to see the ads. Once you adjust the sound at a particular level, it will remain there despite changes in the channels or the programs. If your house is cramped for space and you still want a feature-rich TV, then this model will satisfy your demands. The price tag of $899 also does not sound very daunting.
