so there are new models coming out from vizio and everyone is talking about the VF551XVT, but what about the other models. As a person who hasn't bought an hdtv and cannot afford the "big guns", i took the liberty in e-mailing vizio on when these two new tv's would be arriving. response


-----,

The models are due out at Target and Costco around May 19th.

Those are very very interesting specs. I have the Vizio VO32L (720P) and it's been awesome. The model you posted has improved specs on the one I got. They keep improving their models each year. I think this one should be a nice solid set. at the Mnf. price of $599 expect it to be a little less than that at Target and Cosco's . If I was in a market for it this would surely catch my eye.

and it's going to be a 120Hz and I do believe, I may wrong, but I do think it will have an IPS panal as well. These are excellent specs and for the price, WOW!!!!

This is good to know. I'm waiting for a check for the warranty replacement of current TV and was going to buy a VOJ320F but now I am going to wait and consider the VL320M.


Has anyone seen the complete specs? Not just the summary that is posted above.

The contrast for the 32 will be 1300:1 and for the 37 1400:1 both with a response time of 6ms and brightness of 500nits. This is according to the specs in the manual.

Hopefully, the OTA tuner will be better than the one in the VO32LF. I bought one of those and returned it - I found better reception with my Zenith converter box.

yah i've sent another e-mail concerning the 32 and 37 inch.

Hi Jamie,

as for now we do not have any information on when the release date will be an it will definitely be announce in our Website

thankyou and best regards.


If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our Technical Support Division directly at (877) MY-VIZIO. (877) 698-4946.

that was there reply.

HOWEVER...

when you check vizio's website there are updates in the 32-41 category

these include the specs for VO370M (never heard of it), VL370M, and VL320M

i'm sure the VO370M is like the black version of the VL370M (java colours)

Emailed vizio asking about the VL370M availability and was told july timeframe. I also asked if it was going to be 120Hz, and they replied no. Bummer I was hoping for 120Hz...

Either the person that replied didn't know their facts, or Vizio could be making last minute changes.
