Vizio's latest TV: 47 inches, $1,900

Another salvo in the flat-screen price wars

We told you so. Vizio had promised to come out with a 47-inch LCD television with the highest resolution ( 1080p ) for under $2,000 , and it has.

The $1,900 TV is the latest of Vizio's "Gallevia" line, as well as the latest salvo fired in its trench warfare with other relative newcomers in the flat TV business--namely Westinghouse , which has a competing product around the same price.

In a recent interview with News.com, Vizio CEO William Wang said, "We don't believe anyone can call $3,000 affordable" for a 1080p TV. For now, at least, it seems he wasn't kidding.
