One Customer Review for “Vizio XVT472SV Review – 47-inch LED LCD HDTV”

  1. Husereau's reviewDecember 21, 2010

    lips do not match sound on various broadcasts. One show will match and the next one may not. constantly adjusting the audio lip sync. It is not the cable, as my cable company came out and hooked up a t.v. , and their t.v. worked perfect. Same as my other Samsung T.V. works perfect. Visio came out and replaced a part, still experiencing the same problem. It will drive you crazy, always adjusting the lip sync button! I am ready to donate this t.v. and buy another samsung! I hate to think I have to take this loss, but It’s better to keep my sanity!
