IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- VIZIO, America's HDTV and Consumer Electronics Company, has been awarded CNET's prestigious 2010 Editors' Choice Award as the number one recommended buy in LCD HDTVs for the XVT3SV Series. Based on performance, the VIZIO XVT553SV and its siblings XVT473SV, XVT423SV have set the bar in the 2010 LCD HDTV category with their full array TruLED™ picture quality making it the best TV on the market while still managing to cost less than direct competitors' flagship models. Combined with the most extensive set of features on the market, including the editor's favorite implementation of VIZIO INTERNET APPS™ (VIA™) with built in dual band Wi-Fi and QWERTY Bluetooth® remote, the XVT3SV Series is truly the performance leader in the LCD HDTV category.
"I've always considered an Editors' Choice Award as the answer to the question 'What would you buy?' in a given product category," wrote David Katzmaier, CNET's HDTV Senior Editor on the significance of the Editors' Choice Award announced in his October 8, 2010 article. "With the combination of our favorite implementation of Apps-on-TV so far and outstanding picture quality with black levels deep enough to stand among the best, it earned the XVT3 Series our award." That said, "If money were no object and I had to choose an LCD TV for myself, it would be the VIZIO XVT3SV series."*
"We are thrilled to receive CNET's Editors' Choice Award as the number one recommended LCD HDTV of 2010 for our XVT3SV lineup," said Laynie Newsome, VIZIO's Vice President of Sales and Co-founder. "VIZIO's mission to provide the most advanced technology at an exceptional value is the core of this company. It is a great feeling to have CNET recognize this in our XVT line and we cannot wait to show the world what we have in store for 2011."
