I purchased this TV at my local Wal-Mart last night. This is my 4th LCD and first Vizio. I wanted to upgrade from a 32" 720, 60Hz. This one met and more of my expectations. The picture is very sharp. You can choose 4 picture modes. It has Piture-in Picture, or you can have 2 screens side-by-side (very cool). I still have to figure out how to get the 2nd pcture to come up. It has plenty power for sound with a 40 watt amp. At level 2-4 is plenty to hear across my living room. You can adjust the bass and treble or used a preset Eq setting. I'm currently using an upconverting Sony DVD recorder and the picture is still crystal clear with HDMI. The remote isn't universal or backlit. My cable remote will only operate the power, volume, channel. So you will need to use 2 remotes when changing the inputs/funtions or get a programable one. One more thing, you can view photos or play mp3's through the side mounted USB input.

First and foremost I am a gamer. I bought this tv about a month ago. It is my first step into the world of high def. I waited so long to write a review so the newness has worn off and I can be more objective. I did some online research and travelled around trying to get the best deal. This one is it. The 120 hz over the 60 hz is a noticable difference. Television is much better at 120hz. However, if you play games like I do, a greater hz value will be in your best interest. The larger the screen, the higher the hz. For a 42" I would go no lower than 240 hz. You WILL see the difference. I am very pleased with my purchase. For the money I could not find a better tv. If you have more money to spend, go for a higher hz. If you do not play video games, get this tv with no hesitation!

The picture is so lifelike it's unbelievable. If it's a picture of the ocean you could almost reach in and get your hands wet. I agree with the "hoki" remote. Almost all Vizio remotes are lacking in quality. Functional yes...quality no. It's nice that you can hook up a computer directly to the TV without a hassle. Makes it simple to watch Netflix or Amazon's streaming movies.

I purchased this TV in February, '10. The picture and sound are excellent. I also purchased a Vizio 32" at the same time, which is also a superior product. I would recommend the Vizio to anyone!

Purchased this TV in January. AWESOME is about the best I can say. We waffled between 60 and 120 HZ. Side by side with a similar sony product, this was the best picture and sound. I retired my 57 RP TV prior to purchasing this one. The refresh rate is superior to the 60 HZ. version. NASCAR and other action sports are great fun to watch with this 120 HZ. I can't imagine what 240 looks like!!! You won't be disappointed. Right out of the box i connected my blueray player and hit Play. All I can say here is WOW!!! Purchasing a 37 Inch to retire the old sharp 25 In CRT soon!!! I can't wait!!! Just be sure to take some time and read the manual and set it up right the first time!!!

Obtained the tv through site to store on 4/10/2010. Set it up and everything worked fine. Next mourning turned on the tv after about 5 minutes the picture froze and audio made a clicking sound, than the screen went to white and black lines. Contacted Vizio, after sending them pictures of the problem a repairman changed out the main, power, and LVDS on 4/30/2010. Tv has worked today, hence "crossing my fingers. Picture and audio is great.

This TV (VT420M) was $748. It is the best I've ever seen or owned. The fast & smooth motion are incredible. The reason I bought this particular 42" was because of the 40-watt speakers. Most every HDMI has only 20-watt speakers. I'm positive I won't have to buy a sound system to work with this product to hear it easily in the living room. You won't be sorry to buy this TV, the only thing is if you want PIP to work you have to have another tuner (i.e., DVD player with tuner or Blue Ray with tuner) to get the PIP or POP to work. I would not recommend Wal-mart's site to store as this delivery method took 11 days to deliver when the product was only 125 miles away from my home.
