About - Vizio E470i-A0

The Vizio E470i-A0 is a 47-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). It has LED backlighting, a more energy-efficient type of backlighting. It also has a feature called local dimming (which can dim sections of the backlight while others remain brightly lit), which has the potential to improve black levels and contrast. Rather than the basic 60Hz, it has a faster 120Hz frame rate, a feature designed to reduce motion blur.

This model is Internet-enabled and can access online content, including streaming movie and TV services. It has an Ethernet jack for a wired connection to your home network via a cable. This TV is also Wi-Fi capable, so you can connect it to your home network wirelessly. It is DLNA certified, so you can view digital photos stored on a compatible computer, phone, or other mobile device also connected to your home network.

There are 5 HD-capable inputs: 4 HDMI and 1 component-video, which doubles as a composite-video input. It also has a USB port, which may be used to play media--photos, videos, and music--stored on a flash drive or memory card reader on the TV.

The Vizio E470i-A0 measures 26.89 inches high by 42.31 inches wide by 9.04 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 3.23 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a glossy finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black

The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 12/12 months, respectively. Other screen sizes in this model line include: E420i-A0 (42")

vizio tv - a piece of trash for $700.00!
The Tv Broke Before It Wo
Best Uses
This 47 Vizio is a piece of junk! It broke before it was 6 months old. They fixed it under warranty. It broke again before it was 3 years old. Vizio would do nothing about it. $300.00 to repair it. It is a piece of trash!

Attracted to Vizio based upon a smaller screen one that has worked flawlessly for 2+ years. The 47 is even better in HD mode and the features are great!

awesome products!
Best Uses
I've had a couple of Vizio TVs for a few years and love them. They are just as good, if not better, than other competing brands, but you get way more for the money. They have computers and other related products now too!
