Demonstrating VIZIO’s leadership ability at any price point, their XVT Pro series with TruLED(TM) incorporates VIZIO’s most advanced HDTV technologies, including 480Hz SPS with Smooth Motion(TM) and Smart Dimming(TM). In addition, most of their Razor LED(TM) sets combine Smart Dimming for precise black levels and optimized picture quality, and all sets are designed with slim, stylish features matched with high performance.

Many sets offer VIZIO Internet Apps(TM) (VIA), built-in high definition wireless (802.11n dual-band) or wired networking to enable on demand movies, TV episodes, music and other online content. VIZIO is also offering audio quality through SRS audio processing. VIZIO’s LED LCD HDTV designs ensure high-energy efficiency and Energy Star 4.0 qualification for all sets.

"We believe consumers deserve an opportunity to purchase the latest technology at an incredible value and LED backlit HDTVs are no exception," said Laynie Newsome, VIZIO Co-Founder and VP Sales and Marketing Communications. "VIZIO customers will soon be able to choose their favorite LED backlit set in sizes ranging from 72" with TruLED backlighting to as small as 16" with Razor thin designs and enjoy excellent picture quality and function."

"With their new product line, most of VIZIO’s new TVs will use roughly 50% less power than their prior models," said Noah Horowitz, Senior Scientist, Natural Resources Defense Council. "Much of this remarkable progress is made through the use of state of the art light emitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate the TV screen. What’s particularly encouraging about their announcement is that VIZIO is making these energy saving improvements across the board. Whether it is simply a smaller 19" TV for the kitchen or a 55" big screen TV for the family room, their customers can be assured that they are buying an energy efficient one."

    You are stating that the Vizio SV422XVT is a TruLED TV set, however, after I bought one I realized that is not. This TV’s backlight is CCFT, not LED.
