This is a great TV. I have the 32" but its 60hz. I went with the 42" and the 120hz makes a big difference. The picture is clear and crisp. The colors are bright and the dark is very very watchable with those dark night scenes. This is a great buy and I would compare or rather say this sets the standard for other TVs like samsung, sony. The TV is a steal and you wont be dissapointed. The internet apps are great and the HD is fantastic. Sound is great and at times i think it sounds like its really in the room

This is a gem. Stylish. Well made. Excellent picture. The biggest surprise is the sound. I was able to eliminate a designer brand extra speaker. Three less wires to tangle with is an extra plus!

BAD MOTHER BOARDS

These units have bad mother boards. The entire line. Purchased three. Two have been returned to Wal-Mart and replaced with a Samsung. When they get about 1 1/2 years old or so is when it will hit. Wal-Mart has on file over 200 complaints. You can go on the web and see hundreds more. If you got one that is still working it will get you sooner or later. If you purchased from Wal-Mart you are ok. If from somewhere else good luck. Wal-Mart is a class act and stands behind their products. You will get nothing from Vizio. Thanks Wal-Mart for your help.

I did extensive research on buying just the right television for the amount of money that I was willing to spend. Of course I hadn't bought a television in over 15 years. So this was quite a "television culture shock" especially on the features. However, I'm very pleased and I would recommend this product. I was a little disappointed at the time that it was available for home shipping. I had to pick up from the store; however, everyone was very nice and friendly.

what's the difference between the Vizio model E422VL AND THE MODEL E422VLE ?
by an anonymous customer 4/10/2012
6 answers
  • A. Thank you for inquiring about our product. The E422VL has an AV input and a component input. The M422VLE has both also but is a shared input so you are not able to use both at the same time. The VL also offers RCA input for use with a HDMI port. This is the only difference Thanks again and have a great day

  • A. The differences between the two models are very few. The E422VLE has 3 HDMI ports and a headphone port. The E422VL has 2 HDMI ports and an analog audio port but no headphone port. There are a few cosmetic differences as well.

  • A. The E422VLE is replacing the E422VL, it is a newer version of the E422VL. You'll notice the energy ratings are slightly different ($15 per year rather than $16 per year for the old model). A couple of inputs shuffled around as well, nothing major. The bezel around the screen on the old model has a nice looking textured black matte finish that looks almost like brushed black metal, the new version is just straight shiny plastic, which in my opinion looks cheaper (and probably was cheaper to manufacture). The remote on the new version seems to be slightly more responsive (the old one was somewhat of an issue, lagging and not picking up button inputs etc). In general I would estimate that the newer version has likely improved any known reliability issues and bugs that the old model had. But at the same time they seem to have cut some costs in the manufacturing process (ie the bezel), even the box on the new one is cheaper looking (old model had full color images all over the box, new one is just plain red and white). Bottom line, go for the new one if you have a choice and the price is the same or close to the same, newer is always better, and it wont have been sitting on a shelf for a year.

  • A. They both have built-in wifi (802.11n). They both are Energy Star 5.3 compliant (check Vizio). They both have the built-in Ethernet port. It seems the only difference besides a couple port variations is that maybe they are marketing the Energy star compliance on the VLE or the "E" means nothing. The only thing that I could figure out is that the VLE is the newer model.

  • A. The only difference I could find is in the Energy guide. The VL is $16 and the VLE is $15. Quote from specs.: It also exceeds ENERGY STAR® 5.3 guidelines making this stylish HDTV a friend to the environment and your wallet.
