Vizio VF550XVT1A: 55

Look past the annoying watermarks and you can see a well designed Vizio LCD TV. Vizio’s VF550XVT1A (who comes up with these model names?!?) is a 55″ LCD TV that sports a 1920 x 1080 pixel format. The frequency is doubled to 120Hz, which will reduce motion blur significantly and the relatively fast 5ms will aid in providing good fast-moving video on the massive 55″ LCD. I personally don’t like glare on my displays so the VF550XVT1A has an “advanced polarizer” that the company claims reduces reflectivity. Good! There are a LOT of connectivity options including five HDMI ports and an HD Game port. The HD Game port is on the side of the VF550XVT1A and is probably engineered to eliminate input lag from gaming consoles like the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Gamers rejoice! The real strength of the 55″ LCD TV monster is the price: just US$1,999! That’s MSRP and street prices (at CostCo) will be even lower! What is strange is that you’ll need to wait until January 2009 to get a hold of one of these. Remember: patience is a virtue.
