Summary: The included remote is pretty uninspired, just a couple of dedicated buttons for smart features to set it apart from a generic clicker. Value It's the bottom line that counts. For consumers who are concerned as much with cost as with performance, it's tough to do better than the Vizio E0i-A1. This competent performer is a near-stellar choice when compared to LED TVs in its price class.
Pros: Great black levels, Non-reflective screen, Good streaming features
Cons: Local dimming causes some black crush, Mediocre color performance, Refresh rate only 60 Hz
Conclusion: A few minor quirks aside, we think this Vizio TV provides real value. The E420i-A0’s solid picture quality, useable on-board audio and impressive Smart TV interface make it a product we’d be happy to have at the center of our home theater. Those looking to move into the 1080p Smart TV arena without breaking the bank will find the Vizio E420i-A0 a formidable contender.
Pros: Good picture quality, Relatively slim design, Excellent Smart TV platform, Great feature set, Affordable
Cons: Minor white washout on select mediums, Occasional jitter in fast-paced scenes, Smart Dimming feature lowers picture quality
