Summary: It is a good choice for under $600 USD price tag we paid for this model. 3D is impressive overall with color depth which you will enjoy with any HD movie or channel. Smart TV options are also nice with integrated wifi for Netflix and Amazon streaming.
Summary: I bought this TV last July from Amazon and never had a problem with it at all. The color is amazing and when I played my video games on it I never had any problems. The sound is pretty good. I didnt hook theater systems to it as of yet. I love all of the options you have with this tv. You can do so many plug and plays with it and even hook your computer to it. The remote is even amazing the full keyboard and explore Facebook and other applications with it.
Summary: I read and looked around for a new T.V. back in November and finally settled on this T.V. mostly because it has the most bells and whistles for the money. I will tell you this, after getting the t.v. home and hooking it up to a blu-ray player in 1080. It is simply amazing, the picture is so clean and picturesque that you feel like you're right there.
Summary: I am updating my review now. Actually, my cable wiring was the culprit not the tv. I finally see the actual picture quality and it is very great. I am very happy with my purchase now. The recent vizio update was a plus...the tv is now can connect straight to youtube now with flingo.
Summary: I love this TV. The apps are great, especially if you have amazon prime or netflix. You can stream HD shows wirelessly/wired to your TV through the on board apps, which is a feature I've used a lot. I don't get any 3D programming, however, and this feature has been completely useless for me so far. I wish I would have saved a bit of cash and got a non-3D model that still had Vizio's Internet Apps. Picture quality is amazing.

Summary: i buy this vizio xvt3d424v 42" 3d full array led lcd hdtv at amazon.com. i was shopping for a new hdtv for my bedroom and amazon was the best deal for me. the hdtv is fantastic tv that i'l ever own. the picture is so clear, that i thought its was a live broadcast. the apps works great too, i like to watch netflix on it. and another thing i have my computer connected to the hdtv also. i havn't try the 3d yet, i am shopping for a blue ray now.
Summary: I like this TV. I got tons of features for a good price. Picture quality is ok. I'm sure there are some models that are better from different manufacturer, but only if your willing to sell your first born for one. It's much better than my box TV, so i'm not complaining. However, the sound could be better. I invested in surround sound speakers. That helps a lot. I'm in love with the Qwerty remote :) The only disappointment I have is the Picture in Picture feature.
Summary: The item is really well packaged as far as TVs go. I work with TV deliveries all day long and when I placed my on order I was a little concerned with the package making it and my TV being in one piece. There is a thick layer of styrofoam to protect yourTV. This made me extremely happy when I noticed that there was a little wear and tear from shipping on the external side of the package.
