I've had a Vizio 26" (Model: va26lhdtv10t) for the past three years and thought it was about time to go with a more modern TV. On my old TV, there was a least an inch of edge (no picture) on 3 sides of the TV and 2 inches of edge on the bottom. This TV has less than an inch on all four sides as you can see in the picture. That may be minor to some, but I sure enjoy it. The picture is great as well! I no longer have to sit at a certain height to see the picture as how it was meant to be seen. There's no gray fade when sitting at an angle and the colors are a lot crisper even without HD programming. The size is perfect for my bedroom. Now I just need to check out the HD if only I had an HD cable box. I do, however, have an HDMI cable I will hook up to my Xbox 360 and i'm sure I'll be impressed. Overall, a great upgrade choice at a decent price. Wal-Mart had the lowest price I could find both online and off. I did some extensive research on which TV to by and I must say that I'm very pleased with my decision. Definitely worth it!

I did A LOT of research for a replacement HDTV, and the reviews for Vizio are usually quite good, so that's where we went. It took about 15 minutes to install, really simple operation. 42 inches is really a good middle of the road size, not too big, and not as small as the 30 inch TV we replaced. The picture quality is excellent, great for gaming and HDTV. I also like it has a component cable hookup so I can play my PS2 and Wii on it, along with my 360 on the multiple HDMI hookups. The basic sound is also pretty good for a flatscreen (I've read some people complain, but the basic stereo sounds great to me. It's not as good as my surround sound, but for basic audio it works fine). I know some TVs have a lot of bonus stuff (like Wifi for Netflix, higher HZ rates, or 3D), but I find all of these things overrated. If you treat your TV as one would use a computer monitor, or just to show quality video for sports and TV shows, this is the right TV for you! I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a good quality HDTV (and Walmart had the best price for this size and brand).

Viewing angle -- Great! With the way my living room is set up, someone will inevitably be sitting off to the side of the TV instead of getting a straight on view. I spent the first six hours of ownership sitting on the floor, off to the side, writing report cards and there was no distortion to the picture. Everything and everyone looked just like they should. Oh, and my living room gets A LOT of afternoon sun. No glare off the screen and it adjusts to the lighting in the room. I turned off my lights and the picture/lighting adjusted on screen so the picture was clear as could be. Sound -- Excellent! I don't need theater sound but I didn't want it to sound tinny either. It meets my needs as an average TV viewer. Good, rich sound. I love this Vizio!

A sleek TV to bragg about !

This is our first LED-HDTV from Vizio. No wonder why everyone braggs about it !; Its a sleek model; low weight; thin frames and less messy with regards to setup. It got very crisp image at HD and the light/contrast is evenly distributed and is not overpowering to hurt the eyes. The sound quality is good too; no "hissing noise" even at a very low volume for prolonged duration. One thing i am not sure about if its the TV or the cable service, is that each channel got a different volume level !. I'm sure there's a way to fix that !. Then, the TV looks much wider than I thought; so getting appropriate stand was a challange ! Price-wise, initially I thought its a bit expensive, but thats a matter of time ! Other similar model TV by different companies didn't attract us, though they are less by about $30-100 at this time. Either they are too bulky, heavy, moderate picture quality and poor rating. So I by-pass the price concern! The reason for 4 stars is that we got the TV only recently and yet to explore all the technicalities to assess better ! Overall, I strongly recommend this TV as a top candidate in this category (i.e., LED-HD/42")

I purchased this Vizio 42” television because my wife thought we should give it a try. It was a new company and she wanted something ‘different’. I let this be her decision about a TV. BIG MISTAKE!! We had a hard time reading the info window (because of its small size), there is NO clock (this eliminates some functions – like sleep timer), there’s no way to check signal strength for reception. This set didn’t even have a way to adjust sound other than up and down – right to left. As a basic TV, it seems okay. When it starting having sound problems (people starting talking very low and graduating into a normal tone by mid-sentence – but not all the time). I did not like the decision of buying a Vizio. There are too many dislikes and the starting of problems after only two weeks, so back to Walmart it went. I then went to Best Buy and bought another Samsung. I say another Samsung because that’s want we had before. I haven’t even taken it out of the box yet, and I’m happier with my new TV.

I, of course like to read peoples reviews about things before I buy them. I was certainly not disappointed with this TV. What a great value for a great product. First off, This TV was very easy to set up, putting together just 3 screws to get the stand on. After setting up, connecting wires, turned it on. The HUD to set up programming, screen setting, etc. a cinch! Has great picture and sound. I was really worried about the sound on the slim hdtv, was really impressed with this one! I highly recommend this TV for the price!

This TV was given as a gift to a disabled family member. It has a Beautiful Picture. Had a problem programming Directv Remote with this model. Called Directv, they couldn't give me a code for the remote to work properly with the Vizio. So, I contacted Vizio and they recommended that I use the LG tv or the Goldstar tv codes in the Directv Remote setup book. I used the LG and the code worked. If anyone has this problem try the LG codes. The Remote works properly now with this tv. I'm so happy I could give a great gift to someone who truly appreciates it. I highly recommend Vizio to everyone. I personally have owned one for several years now and some of my friends own one and they are truly happy with theirs.

Great for sensitive eyes

Customer review by wsudaveyo

5.0 stars 1/31/2013 by wsudaveyo

Both my wife and I are a little bit sensitive to TV lighting, so it was tough to find one we were both happy with. This was it. What I like: The full backlit LED - this produces a much smoother picture over edge-lit, in my opinion. The smart-dimming on this TV is really great. LED vs LCD, I can't really tell the difference as long as it's full back-lit LED. The 60hz refresh - I wanted to get a 120hz for sports, but after I got it (a beautiful LG# I realized that twice as many pixels were just a little bit too many for my brain and eyes to handle and still be relaxed. There is actually a model almost exactly the same as this one with 120hz but i prefer this one. And NFL Redzone looks fantastic on it, no problem at all. The design - looks great in the room, love the slim frame. Unique settings for each input - Whatever settings you have per input remain saved. So you have to set each one up initially, but I have my xbox #HDMI2# set up a little differently than straight cable #HDMI1#, which I like. This is probably a common feature these days but I had never noticed it before. What I don't like - only 2 HDMI ports #I really wanted 3 but I just couldn't find a TV i wanted with everything), and with one on the side, it is hard to bend the cord so that it doesn't stick out from the TV. But it can be done. In Summary - This TV is great if you are a little bit more sensitive to light and want a TV that is truly relaxing on the eyes while you watch it. I don't get eye strain from this TV and neither does my wife. It's a beautiful picture, setup is simple, and I trust Vizio to take care of me since they have in the past.

Sound is good, look is good with small frame, brightness is good as well as controls. Very light and good resolution for the picture. Overall I would definitely recommend it especially for the cost. It is overall better than a Sony Bravia 42v40100 that I brought for 950 dollars, but that was back in 2009.

I bought this LED Tv for the bedroom using the ship to store option. It arrived 3 days early, and was easy to set up. I set the picture mode to the Golf setting, shut off the ambient light sensor, and the picture is just perfect. The thin bezel allowed me to get a bigger screen into the space I had, and the sound is good too. I really didn't expect a tv at this price point to be this good. I am very happy.
