I just finished spending a few months with a Vizio HDTV and for the price, you really can’t complain too much. Those with a thirst for the big screen and a small budget will be excited to know that Vizio will be selling its new 52-inch model online and at Costco stores next month. Word from Taiwan is that the set uses the same exact LCD panels used by LG Philips. Though not cheap by any means, it’s certainly one of the cheaper 52-inch LCD TVs available, coming in at $2200.
Also, by year’s end, Vizio will be offering a 40-inch LCD HDTV that uses Sony and Samsung’s S-LCD technology. No word yet on price, but this is sure to keep increasing Vizio’s market presence as a strong competitor in the HDTV world. Sure there are plenty of TVs to choose from, but only so many are priced for those on a budget.
