VIZIO M420SV

 

Meet the VIZIO M420SV, a low mid-range television set that places much of its draw in its internet features, but has a few non-performance related annoyances that make the experience a somewhat forgettable one. Despite this, the Vizio does manage to...

Consumer review by: DoneWithNewegg (newegg.com)

Second try. Not much better.

 

Newegg is decent as far as PC parts and other electronics. They should either revamp or get out of selling refurbished products. The first tv had been sent back at least twice before and was never repaired. It came in a box that looked as if it had...

It works and isn't buzzing, yet

Newegg needs to reassess their refurbished electronics operation. The shape these two tv's came to me in is unbelievable. You would not believe how shoddy the packing is. The tv base was against the screen. The top left corner is broken and the screws...

So far so good.

 

Normally I wait awhile before posting a review. It does work and I tried some different inputs, seems ok. I wrote this up to mention the packing. It was THE worst packing for any item I've ever received. The fact that it was a TV packed this weakly is...

It turned on. Screen looks great

Worst packing job ever. There are two mismatched pieces of styrofoam in the bottom of the box and nothing on top. There was a bag around the tv. I'm shocked the tv made it to me in one piece ; There are some scuffs and signs of use on the back and...

what can you say you like it

 

My TV came with no signs of wear and tear on the TV at all. If it wasn't for the generic brown box, and knowing I purchased a recert there is no way of telling. I would buy another, and have recommended this to a friend.

The picture is good, and the LED back light is great after you turn off the ambient sensor and adjust it manually. It has easy to navigate settings and options. After a few simple tweaks it's a fantastic TV
