  • Summary: The VIZIO SV420XVT is a high performance sports car that can deliver top notch picture quality. But like a race car, you will have to get under the hood occasionally to tune it for different road conditions. If you don't like getting your hands dirty, then look to a more all-utility vehicle, something like the VIZIO VO42LF.
