"Big Improvement from the Vizio"4.5 starson by rob_seltzer
Pros: Overall excellent for an LCD TV
Cons: None if you prefer and LCD TV
Summary: I bought a 47 inch Vizio LCD TV at Costco. After installing it on a wall mount with a full surround sound system, I discovered that it had some very disappointing characteristics. The off angel viewing was really poor and the contrast rations were relatively low. Even a few degrees off angle caused picture degradation, particularly in low light scenes. After spending weeks trying to adjust the problems away, I decided to replace it. I researched all of the 46 inch LCD TV's (46 inch was the perfect size for the location on my wall). My research resulted in the Samsung LN-T4661F as the best overall solution for my situation. I must say, I am very happy! The TV is all that I expected. The off angle viewing is excellent (for an LCD TV). Color saturation, blacks, contrast ratios are very good to excellent. I am not crazy for the design of the frame (very subjective point) but, other than that and, the slow transition on jpeg pictures from the USB port. I am a happy camper!
PS, Costo accepted the return of the Vizio.
I purchased the TV through Buydig.com. They delivered ahead of time and the price and service was excellent.
