VIZIO has unleashed details of its new LCD HDTV catalog at CES 2010, and they've got 37 new displays in the XVT and M Series lines, ranging from 16-inch to 72-inch wide-angle screens.

Two of the big features to look for in these sets are Smart Dimming and Smooth Motion, geared to produce more precise black levels, optimized picture quality and smoother picture-refresh rates, based on the screen size. The LED-backlit, energy-efficient (they're all Energy Star 4.0 certified) displays use up roughly 50% less power than their predecessors.

Most of them arrive with built-in Wi-Fi (802.11n dual-band) or wired networking to connect viewers to VIZIO Internet Apps, giving them access to on-demand films, TV shows, music and other online content.

Being that there are 37 choices in the VIZIO's new catalog, there's bound to be something for every type of HDTV customer. Divided up into seven categories, there's a lot to distill, so VIZIO has published this chart with a breakdown on prices, release dates and other specifics.
