Video of the Day: Vizio GV47LF 47" LCT HDTV

Mmmmm-waaah! Yikes!

Our Vizio GV47LF 47" LCD HDTV arrived yesterday. My business neighbor, Corey (of Corning Auto Parts, two doors from my office), indicated a need for our 27" Hitachi CRT TV. He helped me unpack and set up the Vizio LCD unit and scampered away with the Hitachi TV and the box and packing materials for the Vizio TV. Thank you, Corey!

The Vizio unit is superb. Laura indicated a great desire for this unit. She rarely asks for anything, so it was a pleasure and a delight to be able to please her.

We watched "Night at the Museum" to initiate the new TV.

Laura declared we must now purchase an HD DVR/Satellite Receiver, add HD programming to our DirecTV service, and purchase a Blu-Ray DVD player. So it shall be!
