Vizio VL420M LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

Priced at less than $800, the VL420M is a very cheap 42-inch LCD HDTV. But it turned out to be cheap in other ways: we saw lackluster performance from this budget display.

The VL420M is a cheap display. Priced at around $799, it is one of the cheapest 42 inch displays that we have looked at. But there's a price to pay: poor performance. In our tests, we found that it had weak blacks and a poor contrast ratio, which leads...

Vizio VL470M LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

Vizio's new VL470M, which boasts the company's distinctive java-brown finish, leans toward the lower end of the company's line, price-wise. This 47-inch, 120Hz LCD uses a traditional CCFL backlight, as opposed to the LED lighting in Vizio's step-up...

The USB port will not only make firmware updates easy but more importantly will allow users to access their music, picture and video files on their television with friends ; The Vizio's image processing was pretty good, rarely causing disruptive...

The VL470M lacks an Internet connection which means it cannot take advantage of any of the ever growing streaming services or "widgets" found on other sets from the likes of Sony, Panasonic and Toshiba ; I found the remote to be lacking. On a...

VIZIO VL420M

 

The Vizio VL420M is a 42-inch, 1080P LCD television. Retailing for around $800, it's a rather good deal for a TV that large, but the pocketbook savings come at a cost. The VL420M is hardly a champion performer. It's a model designed to stretch your...

There are plenty of connection points on the VL420M, including 4 HDMI ports, 2 component, 2 composite, an S-Video, a VGA, and 3 analog inputs. There's also some analog and digital audio outputs that help you wire the TV up to your whole home...
