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.
