The VU37L brings viewers great HD quality: The 1366 x 768 native Resolution LCD provides full HD quality. Cleverreviews.com spent a number of weeks testing the the VU37L and are pleased to report that display lives up to Vizio’s promise to deliver 16.7 million different colors (we lost track somewhere around “burnt sienna”….). What really impressed us was the sharpness of images from 480p to 1080i. So if standard resolution cable or satellite is in your budget, the VU37L’s integrated Digital/QAM television tuner will increase the clarity and quality of regular television allowing you to enjoy enhanced definition without the higher costing HD service. Full HD resolution giving you razor sharp clarity, crisp and clear images and an absolutely amazing viewing experience. The VU37L also provides three HDMI ports, which covers the bases for most situations. Vizio provides that the screen can be hooked up to any supporting computer and provide top quality visuals.

We were impressed with the Vizio VU37L sound quality as well. It provided rich basses and clear high frequencies through the systems on board multiple speaker system. The system also monitors and and adjusts sound levels so you no longer have to experience volume ups and downs during commercials.

Viewer will have to give up niceties like picture in picture with this LCD, but they will not be disappointed with Vizio’s focus on image and sound quality on this 37″ HD set.
