Vizio XVT3D424SV Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $33 per inch of screen size. This is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 29% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual energy use is 4.2 kWh per inch of screen size. This TV is ENERGY STAR, but it is less efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 13 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has more key features than average and ranks in the top 5% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Vizio XVT3D424SV Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV. – Vizio XVT3D424SV Review
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 480 Hz (480 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Vizio XVT3D424SV Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D 3D television with a least one pair of 3D glasses. You can view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and even some 3D programming that is available.
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable with either a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Allows you to wirelessly tap into your home wireless internet service instead of using ethernet cables.
Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don’t have browser search capability.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Vizio TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Vizio HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 1.9″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – Vizio XVT3D424SV Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers are rated at 30 watts of total output power, which is less than average. – Vizio XVT3D424SV Review
HDMI Provides 5 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
