- Just Awesome Review by jeepman28
My wife got it for me for Birthday, I cannot be more happier, it is my first HDTV I cannot believe how clear it is, I feel like I am there while they are filming the movies. My only Downside I have to say is the USB does not AVI or MKV and cannot find what formats it does formats it does support.

- Love my VL420M Review by Steve
Our 1st HDTV. I simply love it. Picture & audio are awesome. Love using the built in USB media port. I hooked up my 1TB Western Digital drive to it and it works like a charm. Only problem I have from time to time is when changing to HD channels on Comcast, the audio is not there, so I cycle through the HDMI inputs until I get back on the right one and the audio is back. That is the only CON I can find wrong with this TV. Thanks VIZIO for making my Entertainment life better.

- Amazing TV Review by Offs3t
At first I had a 42" Sylvania LCD TV, Then I recently sold it because it was just too old. As soon as this got to my door, I was like a kid at a candy store. I hooked everything up and well you already know. Picture was amazingly gorgeous..........I was speechless.

- Very Satisfied with this TV A++++++++ Review by joe
Bought the VL420M from Costco,,,,
And I absolutely love this TV......I mainly use it for gaming and watching movies....popped in FF13 and Battlefield BC2......and wow....looked gorgeous
The sound is pretty good as well....clear and crisp
I love the various options available as well.....allows for specific tinkering
The only downside is the specific codec allowed when you use the usb port for videos.....when I say say specific...I mean by down to the T.....to the last number and decimal point...........nonetheless...its only a teensy tiny problem as I can always use my ps3 and pc/laptop .....but other than that....music and pic work great..
I highly recommend this TV.....its basically a steal at the price they set it at.

- GREAT QUALITY/SHARP CLEAR PICTURE Review by JAR
HAD THIS NEW LCD FOR THREE DAYS!! My wife can't beleive the clairity, looks as you are in the same room as the program we are watching. Had a Panisonic, 42 " VIZIO HAS OUT CLASSED THEIRS. Had it for two yrs went out after a nasty storm. I have been looking for another one(hdtv) for the bedroom, We are Costco members for 10 years. great quality comes their stores,; No doubt they have been great for your corporation, I bought two VIZIO'S for the price i paid for the last 42" hd plasma and your product out shows theirs by leaps and bounds. I have a happy wife, sports look like we are right there! Can't wait for concert with my surround sound system. Try one , if ya don't like it take it back. If ya like it tell someone else or have them come and sit with you and watch yours! you'll have to have 2!

- Outsanding HDTV Review by Doug
This my second Vizio. I have a 32" in the bedroom and now this 42" in the den. The picture is fantastic. Even watching dvd's is almost like a live performance, the picture is so clear. This TV is a definite must for any den. The price for such quality is very reasonable.

- The best you can buy in a 42" for the money! Review by Kemaar
This is my second LCD flat screen purchase. We use this Vizio VL420M TV with Comcast cable, a Toshiba DVD player (1080P upconversion/Costco $39.99), and a Wii game system. I spent less than $900.00 on the whole system, including cables, that I needed to attach these two new items to my existing surround sound system. If you like your products simple, easy to use, and love performance, this product rocks! Buy and enjoy, before you die! The space I've saved in my living area is worth the $900.00. Enjoy!

- Best Bang for your Buk Review by Big Kev
My first HD TV and I couldn't be happier. Shows we watch before now are so vivid and lifelike. I hate to spend alot of cash on something but I cant believe I got something so beautiful for the price. I find myself watching shows I don't care about just to watch the clarity of the program. I give it 2 thumbs up!

- Very good Review by Dan
I like value when it comes to electronics. My first LCD TV was a Vizio VU42L. I've owned it almost 2 years now. I liked it so much I bought a VL420M for my second TV. I agree with the other reviews.This TV sets easy & looks great! Vizio makes very good price conscious products. They will be my TV of choice for a long time to come.

- Fantastic picture best I have ever seen. Review by Victor
I have been looking at HDTV's for a while now and I have compared almost everything on them and in the end I was a bit skeptic about it being a brand I know very little about . But now that I have had it for 24 days I'm so glad I did pick this one it has all the most advanced technology and user friendly along with it. I hope I get many years of enjoyment out of it as it has a picture that is just like you are in the place you are watching. And the price was good value for the quality of TV it is. I recommend that if you want a HDTV that has a great picture you need to think very hard about it and you will see that the Vizio is the one you want to get more value for your money and the whole family will enjoy the movies you watch more than ever before.

- Very Happy with this TV Review by Dave
I am not an expert in LCD large screen televisions. I bought this one because of the price, availability, and size. I really like it and it is very easy to use and set up. I had it out of the box and was watching the Patriots (the reason I bought the TV) within 10 minutes. The stand is a snap to use, the remote is very user friendly, and set up is very simple. Lots of cool features but not so many that it is confusing. The sound is great as well. Never had a Vizio TV before but am really enjoying this one. Picture quality is great (I don't have HD cable, just standard) and DVDs look absolutely breathtaking!! Seriously.
