Vizio CA27-A4 all-in-one desktop

 

Vizio's first attempt at a desktop PC is a consumer-friendly effort that succeeds almost in spite of itself. You'll admire the CA27-A1's large, thin display, its clean Windows installation, and a generally tidy take on the PC as home entertainment...

The Vizio CA27-A1 offers a 27-inch all-in-one and a bold, mostly compelling set of home entertainment features for a reasonable price.

A few risks, like swapping in a touch pad for a mouse, don't pay off, and some quality shortcuts take away from the overall polish.

Forgive its quirks, and people looking for a big-screen all-in-one to serve as a small-room entertainment hub will find the Vizio CA27-A1 a price-competitive possibility.

Fast and elegant all in one, perfect for media

 

The on and off speed is pretty quick due to the ssd. It's definitely not a gaming rig but is more than adequate as a media viewer. I didnt mind not having an optical drive, one from a local retailer was dirt cheap. The design is clean and the keboard...

Great vidio monitor, fast startup

 

Everything from opening the box for the 1st time to getting the unit started was extremely easy. I went on to load some of my existing programs only to find no optical drive in the unit. Not such a big deal as I picked up my existing external drive and...
