Summary: I actually have the 46" version of this TV, (M3D460SR) but that model didn't show up in my search here and I wanted to rate this product now that I've had it for over 2 years. Everything works as it did when it was new. Though I still haven't tried the 3D that I thought would be used a lot more by now, everything else works the same as when I bought it. I get a lot of comments from friends who come over to watch football games.
Summary: I strongly caution anyone to beware of buying a Vizio TV. I cannot find my model (SV420XVT1A) in stock to rate it, but this is a similar 42 inch Vizio to mine. At the time it was purchased it was one of the best 42 inch that Vizio produced. I purchased it elsewhere and had a good 4 year run with it before the power supply and or capacitors blew. While doing some research it appears this is a well known problem. Vizio does not stand behind their products.
Summary: We liked the M3D421SR Vizio television fine until 1 year and 2 weeks after purchase, then the screen and sound went dark (Vizio logo light is on). Called Vizio customer support and they said they won't fix because it is out of warranty. Looked online and it seems MANY others are having the same problem. If you buy this TV, buy the a multi-year warranty...but better yet...buy a Samsung. Our other 40in television is a Samsung and it is a year older and it works fine.
Summary: I purchased this television a year ago during the holidays and I am completely pleased with the quality! The picture is razor sharp (once the settings are adjusted properly), the stock sound is decent, and the build quality is top notch. The passive 3D quality is comparable to most theaters and you can save those glasses for home use as well! Another great feature is the ability to play media through any thumb drive.
Summary: before i bought this tv it took me 2mo of research on 3D tv's and i'm glad i did my home work. i watched a lot of TEKHD on youtube, and read alot reviews on the tv. plus the 240hz is what also sold me on this tv.
Summary: I can't believe this tv even has bad reviews.... Insane! Only thing I didn't like about the tv is that I couldn't turn off the thing that says vizio a I put some electrical tape over it haha. Love this tv my friends about to buy one or a similar one with in a few days.
Summary: Bought at Walmart Christmas 2012. Now tv will not turn on at all. Tv is finished and probably not fixable at any cost. Shame on Vizeo, lesson learned by me, don't make same mistake. There should be a class action lawsuit against Vizio, they no there is a problem and will not fix.
Summary: My husband and I bought our first Vizio product, a 42" 3D LED flat screen a little over a year ago. Three weeks after the warranty ran out it would not turn on. Vizio offered us a "new" flat screen for $600, with only a 3 month warranty. Why would we buy a tv with less of a warranty after ours went dead 2 weeks after a year-long warranty ended? We called a repairman from a reputable local company who determined the main module on the tv is dead.
Summary: Well I did the Black Friday deal at wallyworld on Nov. 25, 2011 (there was a riot at midnight, but the place was pretty quiet by 6 AM after the police had hauled off a few). It was a pretty cool TV with the YouTube app finally showing up a few months later. The startup time was always a bit slow at around 30 seconds or so. Yesterday it was a pretty good TV, today a POS paperweight because it won't turn on.
