- Still a good tv Review by jeffery
Bought this tv 3 years ago and it still looks amazing never had any issues with it. This is a tv that you need to play with the settings to get the optimal picture. (should never use out of the box settings) Tv is well worth the price you can get one for now. ($698 3 years ago)
Looks great for gaming however has some screen lag with the picture settings running high. Cant beat 4 hdmis and 2 usbs which plays videos, pictures, and music. the sound is what you expect from a < 2" thick screen I use a home theater sound system. I would recommend this tv.

- Great Buy! Review by Frizzlefry
I've had this TV for about nine months now and am very satisfied with the features as well as the performance.
Feature wise: the amount of input/outputs are fabulous. I currently have the M420NV hooked up to the following media devices: HiDef cable tuner, a BluRay DVD Player, an older (2002 DVD player), a Sony Mini DV camera, a PC for editing content from the mini DV which is also networked to a digital media library, a PlayStation and finally an iPad.
The digital audio output sounds flawless through my 5.1 system and routing of all audio/video components is pretty straightforward.
The only slight downfall is the media playback capability through devices on the USB ports, as it is limited by playback codecs and the lack of built in WiFi or LAN. Other than that, I have no complaints as this set is great for the price range, especially considering the fact that it is 1080p and backlit via LED, rather than traditional incandescent illumination.
For the average user, this unit will more than meet your expectations and I highly recommend it.

- Great TV, Very satisfied. Review by David
Only had this TV about 5 hours, but its been great so far. Very easy to set up. Picture quality can't be beat for the price. Sound quality is amazing for a flat screen. I was considering buying a sound bar or surround system, but wtih this TV, you don't need it. The actual size surprised me a bit as I had only seen the display model at the store, but it looks great in my living room. High action games are streak free allowing for non stop playing. I would definitely recommend this HDTV to a friend.

- Great and big improvement. Review by Anne
I bought this Vizio about 9 months ago from Brown Box.com and had it delivered to the house. My only disappointment is the delivery company left it on my front porch with no one home and in full site of the street. I am very lucky that I have very honest neighbors in my town. I also purchased a surround sound system to go with it which I haven't needed as of yet. I'll get around to it eventually. Otherwise this has been a great purchase for my first flat screen television and it did not land in the living room either. I was very lucky to have found this TV at Brown Box.com for under $500.00 and it puts my old Hitachi tube television to shame. I rarely even use the Hitachi because the Vizio is such a better experience for entertainment. DVD's are vivid and there is no shadowing of the picture and the sound quality is excellant. Best purchase I have made in a long time.

- Good buy Review by dmj
Got a very good deal on this TV... only a couple of draw backs, one was the place we bought it.. had it on sale but didn't have the price changed in their computer.. had to argue with them over the clearly marked price of the TV... once we got it home and got the box open we were missing a couple of items... the power cord and the owners manual...not sure if this was a Wal-mart issue or an oversite on the manufactures part. either way it does mar an otherwise perfectly good bargain on a TV... picture is excellent and the sound is good, other than that we have not had it long enough to know...

- Great TV, got my friend to buy vizio Review by Dan
I bought this particular set a little over a year ago and it's just simply awesome. Games look great and the 120 hz is good for college football. Got my friend to buy a Vizio and he has no complaints.

- Impressive Review by Dale
Upgraded from an old tube TV that was going out. All we could say was wow.. he picture was so crisp and clear it almost looked fake somehow. We've gotten used to the way tv is supposed to be seen now.
When we first got it our cable box just had the old coax cable and the picture was somewhat poor but when we got the new box from charter with a hdmi connection it made an amazing difference. The added HD channels were a great bonus also. I think it was only like 5 bucks to upgrade the box and it added a whole bunch of channels we didn't have access to before.
BTW i hooked the cable directly to the TV, not through the cable box, and i had access to a staggering number of channels. Went back to the box for the guide and familiar format but may look in to seeing what i can access with just my TV.
Have been trying to use the USB drive to play videos but haven't found out what codecs are supported but so far none are.
All in all we are extremely pleased with our purchase and are now enjoying TV and movies much much more.
