Summary: I have had this TV since early 2009 and its still running as good as the day I bought it. Even at a 60 Hz refresh rate, it still holds up pretty well. You can only really notice the refresh rate with moving text on the screen. While playing games for instance, you will notice a slight blurring of text that might be moving in the game world (for example, player names above their heads). It is minor and they are still readable.
Summary: Received the first TV and it was broken, overstock immediately shipped out a new one that day before I even had a chance to print out prepaid UPS sticker to send old one back. New one arrived in a few days and is perfect. Easy to set up, picture is amazing, we are extremely pleased. Once again, gotta love OVERSTOCK!
Summary: Absolutely no problems with this refurbished VIZIO 42" screen TV. Clear imaging and great color. I am not a heavy TV watcher, but this product truely enhances the experience. Thanks "Overstock.com".
Summary: Did a lot of research upfront before deciding on this Vizio model VO420E...the selling point for me was the fact that it had standard RCA jack audio out so I could use my existing surround sound system with it. Refurbished but unpacked it and could see absolutely no signs of prior use. Easy to set up and within a half hour of unpacking I was enjoying it. Have had it for several weeks now and could not be more pleased.
Summary: I replaced a sony bravia kdl-32M4000 with this HDTV not expecting it to be quite as good. It turns out its much better the sony had poor backlight uniformity, Color saturation, black level. The Vizio is much better in all those cases. All though the black level is still not as good as i would want its still very good such as it is for a CCFL backlit LCD.
Summary: This is a great TV at a great price. Was a bit concerned about a refurbished unit, but had no issues. The color is great and the black levels are outstanding. The TV has good input/output connections with three HDMI ports. I would order another unit without question. The only negative is how the unit is packaged for shipping. While it is secure, there is not a lot of packing material to protect the TV in shipment.
Summary: I love this TV. Everyone who comes over says what great picture and sound and when I tell them I got it from Overstock and its refurbished..they can't get over the price! It came with some paint marks on the top and one call to customer service and they refunded me $50 towards the cost of the paint removal! WOW..so now I have got to brag about this to everyone. Assembly was easy to mount it to the stand.
