>> -- David Katzmaier, senior editor for cnet.com here,
and I'm with the Vizio GV52LF. This is a 52-inch flat
panel LCD TV, and of course as a Vizio TV it's also one
of the least expensive models at its screen size. They
can be available for around $2,000 which is very good
for a 52-inch 1080 P LCD. Of course there's some
50-inch plasmas around the same price level, but if
you've got your heart set on LCD this really is the
bargain at this screen size. Vizio has the same styling
for most of their TVs. It's a two-tone look with the
glossy black above and the silver below. The speakers
on this TV, the silver, can actually be detached if you
want to have a complete glossy black look. You're going
to hang this thing on the wall and you are going use an
external sound system, so that's a nice feature. Of
course the stand also comes off this TV. You can even
remove that little face plate that says Grevia
[Phonetic] 1080 P Liquid Crystal Display if you want to.
The menu on this set offers a good selection of picture
adjustments. You can go in and tweak the color
temperature for red, green, and blue. A feature that we
really like. Around back you'll find four HGMI inputs,
which is, again, the most found on any TV regardless of
price we've tested so far. There's also a PC input and
2 component inputs so the connectivity on this budget
Vizio -- extremely good. The picture quality of this
Vizio isn't quite up to the level of the -- a lot of
the other large screen LCDs on the market. It doesn't
really produce quite the same level of blacks when you
turn down the lights and watch a dark scene. It's a
little brighter black levels, but on the flip-side it
does reproduce relatively accurate colors. So you can
actually go in and tweak the colors to make them even
more accurate which really does help the picture.
Standard def performance on this set was relatively good
although we did find a little bit more off-angle viewing
problems than we'd like to see, when you go off to the
side of this TV you see it turns a little bit reddish
and greenish, depending on which side you are. Again,
compared to more expensive LCDs on the market. That's a
quick look at the Vizio GV52LF. And I'm David
Katzmaier. ^M00:01:57 [ Music ]
