I'm surprised by how well the Vizios performed. I guess Vizio carefully picks and calibrates its review samples. Because I see Vizios almost every week at Costco, and many of the display models have either a color tint problem, or a washed out, greyish, hazy image.

I agree not only the XBR4 there are much better tv's than 4061F to be the first

Price was probably an important consideration, as the W3000 rating seems to show.
