Summary: I am NOT satisfied with my purchase.... Below Avg Pic Quality. Unit described as " The VIZIO 42” Class LED TV is shattering the mold in a way only VIZIO can, with high-quality design and picture at the best value. Enjoy crystal-clear action and eye-popping images in 1080p Full HD resolution. " Don't believe it...
Summary: This is the second Vizio that we own and we are just as pleased with everything on this tv as we were the first one, a 32 inch HDTV. We love the sound, which now we can do away with added speakers. The clarity of the picture is astounding to say the least and the features of this new 42 inch are awesome. I love the fact that it automatically controls the level of the sound of those SO LOUD commercials!
Summary: I'm not gonna get into the whole scheme of things but, my 37" Olevia tv went down and had to watch a 16" tube tv for about two weeks. So ANY tv would have been better than that. I wasn't looking for anything exrtavagant nor did I wanna spend a whole lot of money on a TV. That being said...this is a good 42" TV for the money. I am very happy with it and would buy another one if needed. And FYI...I gave the Olevia tv to my daughter and son-in-law.
Summary: This series by Vizio has eliminated the usual concerns of brightness, contrast and side viewing from LED's. Ability of adjusting widths makes for more enjoyable viewing (wide, zoom, normal and panoramic). So glad I waited and did shopping around for best bang for my buck. 2 HDMI ports for importing. My only complaint is the remote that comes with the set has small buttons for anyone with large fingers.
Summary: Overall satisfied with purchase in the price range. The picture quality is decent, ease of use, setup meet expectations. Energy consumption is significantly less than LCD TV which is a plus. The drawbacks - Sound quality is lacking vs. LG LCD it replaced (sounds more like non-stereo with tinny sound). There are no options to adjust treble and bass. The other key drawback is lack of extra device inputs (RCA jacks) to support older DVD players/gaming systems.
