One of the best deals going in flat panel televisions has been from Vizio. Last year, I picked up one of their 50-inch plasma sets (1366×768 resolution) at Costco for around two grand, and have been duly impressed by the price-to-performance value on these sets.
Now, Vizio has let it slip that they will be releasing the GV47L (aka GV47FHDTV), a 47-inch LCD set running at a full 1080p native resolution for $1999. That price for any 47-inch LCD is quite good, but for true 1920×1080 clarity, it’s exceptional. (The current 46″ Vizio GV46L 720p model pictured above runs just $1699.99).
The company is targeting a release date prior to the Superbowl, so you might want to hold off on your big screen purchases until these hit the shelves. The sets should show up in the typical Vizio retailers such as Sam’s Club and Costco in the next few weeks.
