Vizio continues to raise the bar for affordable HDTV with the introduction of the 37" VX37L LCD HDTV, the successor to their L37. The VX37L is priced at $899, around half the price of an equivalent Sony product. It supports HD content up to 1080i and includes a built-in NTSC / ATSC/ QAM HDTV tuner to play local over-the-air (OTA) and unscrambled cable (both digital and analog) content.
The Vizio VX37L includes an array of standard inputs found on most TVs in its class: component (x2), HDMI (x2), RGB (computer VGA), S-Video, RCA Audio, SPDIF digital optical audio, and composite (x2). Vizio claims the following specifications:
- 170° viewing angle (horizontal and vertical)
- 500 cd/m brightness
- 1000:1 contrast ratio
- 8 ms response time
- 50,000 hour lamp life (22 years)
Other features include Picture-In-Picture (PIP), Picture-Outside-Picture (POP), a removable base, and the ability to be wall-mounted with or without speakers. The set weighs approximately 42 lbs with the stand. The front of the TV is a combination of grey/silver and black, with the sides of the television a white color.
The Vizio VX37L can be found at your local Costco, Sam's Club, or BJ's store.
