Vizio E420i-A0 Review

 

It's no secret that “Smart” technology has revolutionized the way we live and work. Since the release of the first iPhone a mere 6 years ago, most of us have adapted almost every aspect of our daily routine to include smartphones.

Good picture quality ; Relatively slim design ; Excellent Smart TV platform ; Great feature set ; Affordable

Minor white washout on select mediums ; Occasional jitter in fast-paced scenes ; Smart Dimming feature lowers picture quality

Those looking to move into the 1080p Smart TV arena without breaking the bank will find the Vizio E420i-A0 a formidable contender.

When Vizio told us many sizes in its mainstream E series would get the benefits of local dimming, I was intrigued. That feature, designed to dim the backlight in discrete sections to enhance black levels and contrast, is rare on today's LCD TVs and...

The Vizio E0i series shows deep black levels, a uniform screen, and commendable bright-room performance, making it a solid midlevel LCD TV. The Smart content selection is excellent. With its thin bezel, the set has a more compact, sleeker look than...

The set's local-dimming system can cause crushing, obscuring shadow detail; the dimming effect can be very obvious on some scenes; the so-called 120Hz refresh rate does nothing to improve picture quality.

The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling.

Vizio E420i-A0

 

Couldn't be happier with the 42″ E series Vizio! We brought home a 50″ Insignia, sight unseen as Best Buy did not have it on display, because of its $549 price point and 120Hz refresh rate. That was a mistake. The picture was horrible and we tried...

We got a 47″ 3D/Blue Ray with DVD and remote control a couple years ago. The hi deaf channels are very crisp and other ones are reasonably sharp. My gripe is with the remote control.

Vizio does not stand behind their equipment

 

From now on when I buy a refurbished product I will make sure the manufacturer warranties it. Newegg did say that there was no manufacturers warranty, so I have no complaint with them. They sent me a shipping label to return the unit and have been...

None

I have bought many refurbished items over the years and have never had so much trouble with one in my life. Had I known what a problem Vizio has with the IR Port on it's tv's not working, I would not have bought this unit. I contacted vizio and gave...

The TV looks great and has plenty of settings to change to your prefered look. It looks great in 1080p. The Smart Dimming feature was fixed with the update and it makes the picture looks great. The Ability to control picture size to your liking is...
