Pretty Good for price

  • Summary: I have my Wii hooked up to it and its such a clear picture. I also have the Vizio 42 inch 1080p from costco for 1100$ and so far that is perfect too. I highly recommend this tv.
  • Pros: Clear picture Comes with speakers Decent amount of inputs
  • Cons: The frame of the screen is a bit scratched, but knowing it was recertified Im not too upset about it, although if this tv is meant for a nice room, the scratches will not look good with your high quality furniture. The sound from the speakers are like extremely high pitched and high on the treble...

Very happy with this TV

  • Summary: Don't expect Newegg's usual quick delivery when using AIT. Also, the "Front Door" service is more like "Curb Service". There was one person to deliver the TV and he was even older and in worse shape than me. So, I wound up carrying the package in, but all's well that ends well.
  • Pros: Great price, good picture quality, lots of inputs. I was hesitant to go with an off-brand, and recertified on top of that, but I'm glad I went ahead with the purchase. Also, I believe you can purchase an extended warranty from Vizio, at least last time I checked.
  • Cons: Some digital artifacts even with HD Cablebox and HDMI cable. Remote is a little quirky...I have to push some buttons several times before the TV responds.

Great TV, Good price

Robert J., Newegg
28 November 2007
  • Summary: The picture in 720P HD is amazing. Looks equally well with over the air HD, Direct TV, an x-box 360.Plenty of connections.
  • Pros: Great picture in HD. Bright, quiet operation, and attractive package. Sound is better than I expected.
  • Cons: Not 1080P, but 720P looks really nice. Price is only 300 dollars less than new with a much longer warranty. AIT shipping service is very disorganized.

Great buy.

  • Summary: I got the tv from newegg back when there was a standard return policy on it...looks like they've changed that.
  • Pros: Great tv for the price. Lots of connections. Excellent picture quality in HD. The speakers sound better than i thought they would.
  • Cons: Puts out quite a bit of heat. It does seem to give false shadows when I play regular dvds through the analog A/V. It could just be my cheap dvd player...because i don't have that problem when i'm watching cable in SD or HD.

Amazing TV When it works right!

THEODORE F., Newegg
1 November 2007
  • Summary: AIT (the delivery company that NewEgg uses) sucks! They smashed my first set in transit and attempted to get me to sign for it in the parking lot (I had front door service-I refused to sign).
  • Pros: This is an absolutely excellent product!! PIP - POP - RCA - DTV/TV (via cable RF) - Component - HDMI - RGB (PC VGA) & other input options - This TV is GREAT (when it works as it should)! Having a PC connected (via RGB/VGA) looks AMAZING!
  • Cons: Absolutely no cons when it works as it should. However, you might want to keep in mind that this is a refurb with NO warranty from NewEgg and only a 90 day warranty from Vizio(good thing-it provides in-home service).

Can't beat it

Chris P., Newegg
8 October 2007
  • Summary: Buy it and enjoy
  • Pros: Price, quality, features, ease of use, built in tuner makes local over the air signals look fantastic. Directv looks solid with standard programming and s-video connections. I will be upgrading to thier HDTV next. DVD playback through Xbox looks incredible. Great contrast levels and the built in ...
  • Cons: Not 1080P - looks good to me though

Would do it again!

  • Summary: I was really torn between this TV and the othr 42" Vizio. Just compare sizes at a store, and see what you like/want/need. This is my main family room TV, I have not yet hung it up on the wall, and I just got it yesterday, but so far... it looks great! Also, I ordered it Tuesday, and rec'd it FRIDAY!
  • Pros: Bank for the buck! Really, you get a comparable TV to other higher brands for close to half the cost! plenty of inputs for the normal US household.
  • Cons: Gives out lots of heat, (what plasma doesn't) cannot assign different video settings to each input.
