Vizio XVT

Vizio has just announced a huge update to their popular Vizio XVT series of LCD HDTVs. Adding five new models to their XVT series, and adding features such as 240Hz refresh, LED backlighting, and VIZIO’s Smooth Motion II technology.

A new 55-inch model, the 55-inch Vizio VF551XVT1A, is Vizio’s first LED LCD HDTV with a massive dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, along with 240Hz refresh rate, scanning backlight and VIZIO Smooth Motion II technology. The Vizio VF551XVT featured local LED dimming, and higher color saturation, providing better images, along with 5 HDMI 1.3 inputs, and SRS TruSurround HD and TruVolume technology.

New 42-inch (Vizio SV421XVT) and 47-inch (Vizio SV471XVT) models also feature the 240Hz refresh rate, with scanning backlight, Smooth Motion II and a high 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The high 240Hz refresh rate helps to eliminate motion blur, which is great for sports and fast motion action scenes.
