I've helped my girlfriend narrow down her TV choices to a low cost option and a (for her) high cost option -- Vizio E470VLE and XVT473SV respectively. Since I've found AVS posters to be some of the most knowledgeable out there, I would appreciate a double check on my explanation of the main feature differences before I sit down with her and describe the differences to help her decide if the price differential is worth it.Vizio E470VLE
-- 60Hz CCF LCDXVT473SV
--- 240Hz Backlit LED with Local Dimming and Internet Apps60Hz vs 240Hz
-- The frequency of the picture is said to affect two things, motion blurring and judder. While there are a differences on opinions, AVS seems to say motion blurring is not really decreased that much with the higher frequency, however judder is something that is significantly reduced.
CCF vs LED
Q. I've never noticed much judder on my old as dirt 60hz panel; is that because I almost always play DVDs through my computer using VLC or MPC? Or have I just gotten used to it over the years?
-- From what I gather, there is little inherently better about an LED backlight compared to a CCF backlight, except some minor power gains?Dimming vs Non Dimming
-- It seems most say this is a major difference between the panels, leading to a significantly better picture by allowing the bright parts of the screen to pop out from the dark parts of the screens. However, black crush won't necessarily be reduced?Internet Apps and minor I/O jack differences
-- Internet apps isn't a big deal, as a computer can easily be hooked up to either tv. Number of jacks isn't a deal-breaker either as she doesn't have an enormous amount of inputs.
Does it seem like I have the gist of the differences from a video quality point of view (she doesn't care at all about the technical descriptions, just how good Masterpiece Theater and football will look -- yes, I know, odd combo)? And of course any opinions are always appreciated!
