5 stars for picture, sound, value, features, and that Vizio is an American company, based in California. More stars for pip, pop, 120hz, 1080p, and only using 133 watts when on and a half when off. The 47" 1080p lcd display is so much better than my old 42" 1080i plasma, samsung. That used 350 watts and weighed 110 lbs. The Vizio only uses 134 watts and weighs 44 lbs. The screen is brighter, radiates alot less heat, and doesn't reflect the other lights in the room. The sound is vibrant and rich. The SRS features work very well. The volume level goes upto 100 but 15-20 suits my hearing. Like to watch tv and surf the internet at the same time? Or watch two tv programs live, or 2 football games side by side? Hard or impossible before? Not with this tv! As long as they're not both hdmi inputs, any 2 inputs can be pip or pop. (see product details) I went to Walmart to buy the Vizio e420vl for $648 but then I saw that this e470vl was on sale for ONLY! fifty bucks more!!! What a steal,err deal. I had worked overtime that Saturday, and even though I was really tired, when I saw the price for this tv, I got out and had to buy it. This tv's refresh rate is 120hz, 8.25ms. but the screen has a 5ms response. The human eye cannot see less than a 30ms difference in time. That is why the old analog broadcasts only showed 30 frames per second but repeated each frame twice in succesion. This tv can handle any game console or multiple inputs. The minus 1 is for the remote, it can't swap the 2 screeens or even their audio.
