    I do not have an HD DVR at the moment so all I have to connect to the DVR is either RCA or S-Video connections. Does this TV have any RCA or S-Video connections?

    Pretty Awesome TV

    Customer review by Anayltical1

    I had tried a less expensive 2011 model of the E series, and while it was OK, I wasn't that impressed. In comparison, the sound of this model is much better. I have heard complaints about the sound of many TVS, but it is definitely not an issue here. I thought I would be tempted to purchase a hundred dollarish sound bar, but it seems totally unnecessary. The picture quality and color are quite good. Looking over specs, the new 3Ds have faster refresh rate, a better contrast ratio and display more colors. I have not tried the 3D, so I can't comment as a comparison. The TV seems much better made than the E series -- this TV does not seem cheap or flimsily put together. Even the base is more substantial. I paid $628, which seems like a good price. The E series was about $150 cheaper, but this TV seems like a much better overall value. I haven't used the internet apps much yet, and it appears as if I will need to upgrade my internet and/or wifi router speed to take full advantage of watching any video clips or movies.

    Buy this TV if you're OK with having to pay $300-$500 for a fix within the first two years of ownership. Owned TV for almost 13 months when one day the screen stopped working (2 weeks after warranty). Apparently this is a common problem (though Vizio would claim otherwise). When I bought this TV it was top of the line and one of the only models with Internet apps. I wanted the most sophisticated technology because I wanted to have the TV for a long time - I was willing to pay $800. For that kind of money you should be able to expect a product to work for more than a year. If this had happened 3 years after purchase I would be OK with paying for repair but that costly of a fix a year after purchase is ridiculous. Not to mention, two months ago (still in warranty) I had to have my remote replaced because it completely stopped working. Obviously a poorly manufactured product in every way. I would advise looking to more established brands for this type of TV. Vizio may be a good brand for smaller/less sophisticated TVs but they're out of their league with this level of technology.

    Never bought a Vizio before so wasn't sure what to expect. I did see the set working on the Floor of Walmart(not my local Walmart but we have many walmarts within 20 miles of my house) and it looked very good there, so I figured I'll take it home for a test drive. So far I am pretty impressed with it's performance. Picture is excellent, apps all work fine, the surround sound is alittle unnerving I keep thinking there is someone in another room, because the TV catches all the sound from a show or movie including background sound. The sound isn't theatre quality but I have a home theatre system for those times when I need the big sound effect. Was easy to set up, works with my wifi and digital cable perfectly. And the slim thin design makes the TV lighweight and easy to move. So with having the TV for 2 weeks I give it a thumbs up, now we'll have to see about longevity...but so far so good...

    The Best 42" Led TV On The Market

    This is a great well made tv, I love every thing about it. I had gone to Consumer Reports and they had the LG 42LV4400 rated higher so I bought it, It lasted less then 30 days and when I called on it I was told That was normal for that. The LG is also made cheaper. So talk to People And Consumer Reports is not always right! "I" Beleive Vizio is the best and well made on the market. I now own 3 Vizio LED Tv's The 32" and the 26", And I wouldn't trade for any other brand! I'am 63 and I just go out and buy anything without really checking it out first, I drive my wife nuts at times. But you want what you pay for to be worth what you pay! And this TV is worth every penny.

    This TV is hands down the best TV for the money, period. I did my research, believe me. For a long time I was stressing about which TV was worth my hard earned money. I also did not have a ton of money to spend and I was only willing to spend about 700 dollars. Then I found this set. It really has everything. 120Hz, 1080p, 42"(pretty good size), LED(not LCD), WIFI ready, and internet apps. It only uses $9/year in energy. That's important too!!!! Many people in my family bought Samsungs and were urging me to do the same. Yeah, those TV's are good too, but this one truly has a better picture and for hundreds less. So people, don't stress. Just go....... Vizio !!!!!

    Had been looking at other tvs like this one. For the price, features, and it being so thin, it looked like a good deal. I've had for a little over a month, and I LOVE IT . It was easy to assembly, and setting up the internet and tv was a breeze. It has a great picture and the sound coming from it is great. The remote is neat, with a keyboard on one side for the internet use. I've streamed a movie off of Vudu and it worked flawlessly, looked and sounded great. The internet apps on it are ok, depending what you are looking for, and it has automatically updated the firmware. I really have nothing negative to say about it, and hope it will stand the test of time.

    This works great as a TV. It is a smart TV and we love that we can hook it up with wireless internet and watch Netflix, I also listen to Pandora on it. It has other features that we do not use at this point and may not ever. It can be kind of obnoxious sometimes. It freezes up and we have to unplug it and plug it back in for it to work properly. Sometimes our internet speed is just fine and we can watch netflix on the laptop but on the TV it takes forever to load and play. So as far as a television it is awesome, sound is great and picture... for web features it is not very dependable, but those features are awesome when it's not having issues. We love the remote. I thought it would be monstrous and big but it's small to average-sized (smaller than some of our other remotes). It could be much better but we don't feel it's worth the hassle of unmounting it and sending it back.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I've only had it for a little over a week but I am certainly satisfied. The picture quality, especially when viewing HD, is great. To my eyes all of the colors look natural using the factory settings. No dead or stuck pixels that I see. The sound is fine and there are options to adjust it if you feel the need to. Plenty of volume too. Assembly of the pedestal and making the connections to the set was a breeze; I had it up and running in less than an hour. The setup options are straightforward and the screen presentation of those choices is well laid out with good graphics. The only drawbacks that I feel are worthy of mention, and they are minor, are that the buttons on the remote are a bit smallish for my liking, the text size of the channel and program information shown on the screen when the 'INFO' button is pressed is also on the small side, and finally the pedestal seems as if it could be a bit sturdier. Even with those points noted I'm still very pleased with the new TV and am glad that I purchased this model from this company.

    I consider myself a amateur videophile, but by no means an elitist. I have owned every major brand from Sony, Panasonic,Samsung......and will not turn up my nose at a good picture. The Vizio M420SL has it in spades, from it's stellar gaming performance too it's amazing 1080p film performance this set offers something for everyone. The LED back light is one of the most uniform I have seen from any manufacturer. I have notice only slight washing out at certain angle of viewing, but no flash lighting (light splotches) normally associated with edge-lit LED displays. The LED's in this model are strong, so some major adjustment were made to the back light intensity and brightness to bring this under control. The black level performance doesn't match the Panasonic plasma level, but are nothing for any proud owner to scoff at. For film buffs and gamer alike like black level and motion performance are two of the most important aspects while considering a set. Games like Alan Wake and Deadspace offer very high contrast environments that can show off what this baby can do. Environment look ominous and inky black without sacrificing shadow detail. I have seen no ghosting (smearing) of blacks or vivid colors that I have found in many major brands costing nearly twice what I paid for the Vizio . I have friends that have paid thousands of dollars for a TV with these features, but would put the Vizio against them any day. For film fans check out Girl with the Dragon tattoo, Seven and Tron:Evolution you won't be disappointed the like cycle section in Tron is my benchmark for film performance and I am continuously blown away by the Vizio. I have not used the Wifi or Apps, but will update review once

    I picked up the TV a few days after I ordered it from the Walmart online store. It was shipped to my local Walmart and I had no problems getting it home and attaching the stand. Right now I have it sitting on a chest of drawers in the bedroom because I have not decided if I want to wall mount the TV or just leave it on the small chest of drawers where I had my old TV. I think I may just leave it where the old TV was because I am so use to that viewing angle. Anyway, I plugged the existing cable into the new TV and turned it on, everything worked perfectly, picture and sound are perfect. Then I went throught the WIFI set-up with no problem (love the built-in WIFI) and started using the built-in Netflx app. Wish I had bought this TV sooner, also love the LED screen, it uses almost no electricity compared to my old TV set.
