Vizio GV42L

PC Magazine
22 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The Vizio GV42L is a decent LCD option for game consoles or other "clean" sources of video, but regular TV was tainted by distracting artifacts, and the set's default color quality meant that professional help would be required to achieve realistic results.
  • Pros: Low price. Comprehensive picture controls for a value HDTV.
  • Cons: Poor video-processing performance. Excessive edge enhancement. Inconsistent color tracking.

The Vizio GV42L 42" LCD HDTV: Modest Price, Great Picture

Tom's Guide

  • Summary: The GV42L has an upscale look and feel, with a classy design and very useful backlit remote. I found the GV42L easy to use and configure for all sources. Many LCDs have a little bit of over-coloring, where bright, punchy colors are overdone a bit and the result is a cartoonish look with some sources. The GV42L is one of the few LCD displays I've seen where this was not an issue. All sources had a natural look and feel that plasma displays usually offer.

  • Summary: Телевизор Vizio GV42L имеет элегантный внешний вид и эргономичный пульт дистанционного управления с подсветкой, благодаря чему выглядит очень солидно. Он обладает интуитивным интерфейсом и легко настраивается на все источники. Многие жидкокристаллические телевизоры характеризуются избытком ярких и резких цветов, в результате чего изображение от некоторых источников получается немного "мультяшным".
