Vizio's flagship XVT series HDTVs are now shipping, the company announced on Friday. All of these flagship models have Vizio Internet Apps preloaded and can connect wirelessly thanks to integrated dual-band Wi-Fi.

All the sets use local dimming areas in their LED panels, with the 55- and 42-inch sets sporting 120 zones and the 47-inch TV featuring 160 zones. The larger sets are now also less than three inches thick, while the smaller ones are under two inches in girth.
