Summary: Great TV for the price. Got this on Black Friday 2 years back, it was on sale for $400 and at that time it was a killer deal for a 42 inch. The picture quality is as good, the blacks are dark there are several picture mode setting and you can change it to suit your mood/eyes. In fact the quality is as good as the newer Samsung I bought for my other room.
Summary: Not long after I got this tv the volume went out sometimes and it would just randomly cut off while I'm playing my ps3. It takes FOREVER to get the connection from my hdmi cable to by ps3. Sometimes it won't even work. The other day I had to cut it on and off over 10 times to get it to work. It's EXTREMELY frustrating!
Summary: the picture and price was great but those are the only pro's.my tv has had 3 issues,first it would change volume on commercials and also vary from channel to channel,then it would randomly shut off. i put up with these issues for about a month then called vizio for answers/help. they sent me a firmware update in mail for free which solved both problems. Now the volume will randomly get a "choppy interuption" then go out completely.
Summary: Can't say enough about this TV - Price was great, 4 hdmi inputs and fantastic picture quality make this a perfect tv for any room. I have a Sony Bravia 46" in the living room and this was for the remodeled den/spare bedroom. Wall mounts easily and works so well that I compare the picture as good as or better than the Sony (couple years older but a lot more expensive and good for it's time). Great design that adds to the rooms usefulness and decor.
Overall it is a great unit for a very reasonable price.

Summary: After reading a lot of bad reviews of this unit, I was skeptical. When I turned the TV on, I was simply shocked: the picture quality is far beyond my expectations: the screen is vivid and actually really bright, the sound is all right (if one have the correct set-top box or cable-box, the True sound features are garbage: leave them off, use a surround system if want a hi-fi sound) and the usual features are all present.
Summary: I purchased the Vizio e421va for my bedroom two months ago. Bottom line - (1) it has a very good, bright picture, (2) great contrast, (2) and it gives you all the basic features of an entry-level LCD hdtv. Basically, it does everything it advertises it will do. If you want more features & better quality just know that the price range will begin to skyrocket. For the price, this has been a solid value for the money. Sure, you can do better.
Overall decent, would have chose another television
