Vizio is getting a jump start on Black Friday by unleashing a legion of new HDTVs. Delivering the best HD bang for your buck is the new Vizio VP42, a 42-inch plasma that'll go for $1,000 at Costco stores starting next Friday. It'll have the same features as its P42 predecessor like HDMI inputs, 720p/1080i video support, and a built-in ATSC tuner, so it's a well-invested $1k.

If it's an LCD you're after, the company's new VX37L sports an 8ms response time, dual HDMI ports, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and a 1,366x768 resolution for $999.

Also on the LCD line up is the VX20LHDTV, a 20-inch 720p-capable display with a 700:1 contrast ratio, built-in tuner, and $400-dollar price tag.

Finally, on the grander scale of things is the 1,366x768 Gallevia GV46L, a 46-inch LCD with dual HDMI, component, and composite inputs all for $1,650. I would have liked to have seen Vizio do a budget 1080p display, but looks like Westinghouse still has a stronghold on that market with its very capable LVM-47w1. However, if you're just looking to go HD for the first time and can't afford to splurge too much, these Vizio models should do the trick.
