Excerpt: I purchased this TV at a Costco warehouse. The remote did not work properly and then did not work at all. I contacted Vizio and polietly requested they send me a replacement. They refused. An inexpensive item they could have sent me, now I will NEVER purchase another Vizio product.
Great picture and without a doubt the best TV for the money

Excerpt: I am reviewing the 42" HDTV by Visio, I looked long and hard at many HDTV's and after searching all over I feel the Visio has one of the clearest pictures and the best price overall. It was simple to set up and has all the plug ins for anything you need to do.
Excerpt: The Vizio 42 inch LCD, although very inexpensive, is a great television and I highly recommend it. The fact that it is an American company is another plus with today's economy. I would compare it to several other brands costing several hundred dollars more, but of equal or greater quality. We are now in the market for a second unit for our kids room. Costco has a nice selection of Vizios to choose from and they have knowledgeable sales staff to help.
Excerpt: After research various flat screen televisions, my husband and I chose the Vizio -VW42L HDTV for our den area. It is the perfect fit into our wall unit as we chose not to wall mount. Picture is beautiful and even better with our blue-ray. The remote is not as user friendly as my husband would like, because he has to hunt for everything he is looking for but he's also used to using the satelite remote.
Excerpt: we love love love our tv. sound quality is fabulous and so is the picture. it didn't take us long to set up and was compatible with all of our satellite equipment as well as game systems and we even have the orginal nintendo. it's a real space saver and we're even considering purchasing another one.
Excerpt: All i can say about the Vizio tv is it is outstanding. We recently bought a new 42 inch screen hdtv because our old one ianlly died after many many years. We are very pleased with the clarity of the pic and I have highly recomemded this to several friends who are in the market for a new tv
Excerpt: I purchased this television for my son as a Christmas gift. I shopped at several different stores and compared quality of picture along with the price. Vizio came in ahead of the rest. An outstanding picture for less than 1,000.00. I would truly purchase this same TV again.
Excerpt: I was not tech savy when I went to Sears to purchase a TV, but the store clerk was very helpful. I purchased the Vizio when I got DirectTV, and the Vizio was the best bang for my buck purchase I have ever made! My brother, who is tech savy, and bought a Sony, was very impressed with the picture quality of the Vizio when he saw it.
Excerpt: I bought this TV after about 6 months of researching and waiting for the prices to drop I finally bought it a couple of days ago. I love it. Very easy to set up. Took it straight from the box and plugged it in and started watching! It was well worth the money 898.00 at Wal-Mart. I would definitely go for the Vizio. I have several friends who own one and after reading all the reviews. I think it is the one to get!!
Excerpt: We bought this TV about a month ago. Very happy with it. Good crisp image. Many people complain about the location of the connectors, but they are in a perfect place for wall mounting. Audio is the weakest link, but what do you expect from small speakers, A must for surround external speakers. Auto scan for channels is slow. Generates very little heat compared to other LCD's. Buy it.
