-David Katzmaier here next to the Vizio E470VL; this is the 47-inch member of the E0VL series in Vizio's line. There're also a 42- and a 55-inch member of the series. This TV is the one of the least expensive with 120 Hz processing. We'll get to that in a little bit, but first off, let's take a look at the external design. The TV has a sort of beveled bezel around the edge of the screen here, makes it look like, a lot like a picture frame. It's all glossy black, however, there's a little bit of matte along the edge. So, all told, it does blend in relatively well despite that angled look. The TV does not have the standard swivel stand seen on a lot of TVs these days. It also has a fairly thick profile, of course, compared to LED models, but still plenty thin when seen from the side. Around back, you'll find a pretty small selection of inputs. There's 2 HDMI, 1 component video, and 1 AV input. The side panel has just 1 more HDMI. So if you have a lot of analog stuff, you might wanna look at another TV or at least get a, some sort of external analog switcher. This Vizio lacks LED and the internet capability seen on a lot of higher-end TVs. It does have a 120 Hz processing however that enables it to handle 1080P/24 sources well. And also, engage smoothing dejudder processing if you like to play with that. The "Picture Adjustment" menu has a whole bunch of presets, including stuff designed specifically for watching sports like football and basketball. However, there're really just slots and you can play around with them to your heart's content. They don't do much to enhance the picture when you're watching those specific sports. The "Advance Picture Settings" on the Vizio are pretty good. You do get 2-point color temperature adjustment, but it lacks gamma and a few other controls found on some of the other models in its price range. When we compared the Vizio to some of the other TVs in its price range, we did find it fell a little bit short. Its black levels were a little bit brighter than some of those models, which led to more washed-out picture when it's showing dark scenes. Color was a bright spot however. In bright areas, the color did tend to look relatively accurate with nice saturation although in the darker areas, it did turn a little bit blue. When seen from off-angle, the picture did wash out a little bit, and there was some color shift, having a little bit more than a lot of the other models we tested. On the flip side, the video processing did work well at 1080P/24, handled the film cadence properly, although we would have liked a couple of more adjustments for the dejudder processing. That's a quick look at the Vizio E0VL series, and I'm David Katzmaier.
