    Bought this TV earlier today. So far, can't complain. Picture qaulity can't be beat for others that are similar size/price. Sound quality is amazing for a flat panel tv. Ambient light sensor is very cool, automatically adjusting the brightness based on surrounding light. High action/ movement games are streak free which makes for non-stop playing. I would recommend this TV to anyone who is looking for a great flat planel in this size.

    I have many friends who have HDTV'S of various makes and models. This was my first HDTV purchase. This 42" has great all around quality...color...size and most important, excellent sound do the Sarround Sound. The overall quality of the Vizio TV is excellent. It was easy to set up and easy to prograam the remote control. Additionally, my wife enjoys the TV as well. I had a friend who was looking to buy a HDTV for Christmas. I liked mine so much that I recommended this HDTV to him and he purchased the identical TV a week after I purchased mine. For those looking to buy a HDTV, this paticular model has above average qualities for a great price. For anyone buying a HDTV, I would strongly recommend you purchase a TV that has Sarround Sound for volume clarity & control, otherwise you maybe disappointed. You will not be dissapointed with this 42" Vizio HDTV !!!

    Before making this purchase we did a ton of searching to be sure this was the perfect TV for our needs. We wanted: *Good sound quality *Good image clarity *Low energy usage *37" to 42" *under $700 However there were some reviews that concerned me someone had mentioned that the TV was blurry, dull and the image was shaky. Despite the very few negative reviews that concerned me we purchased this TV since they had a ton of amazing reviews. When we brought the TV home set it up my fears were actually addressed the image quality was Horrid blurry, dull and shaky we tired adjusting the setting but it still was bad. I was so devastated. We called up Wal-mart that we purchased from and asked if we could exchange because the TV seemed damaged. Thank goodness we did this when we set the second TV up the image quality was 100,000 times better the image was amazing, sound is great, and I am satisfied! I love where the speakers are located it helps a lot since I have hearing the problems I don't have to blast the volume to hear. My favorite feature is the fact that it is an LED so it doesn't emit a ton of heat now I don't feel like I am sitting in a sauna after an hour of watching TV. Even though the we had received a defective unit initially we are still extremely satisfied with this unit. Great TV for the money!!!!

    We did a lot of research, both online and in many stores over about 6 months before deciding to purchase this TV. We are extremely pleased with it, and contrary to various reviews we read that said the sound quality was poor, we feel its at least as good as our previous 'old school' TV. We will do a lot of research and eventually buy a home theatre sound system, but for now, we are enjoying the sound without any problems. The picture is sharp, the blacks are jet black, no blurring when my husband watches sports and the HD channels LOOK 3D even though this tv doesn't have that feature, as there is so much depth to the picture! We decided too, that a smart-tv wasn't the way to go (a feature that's just too expensive in our opinion) when you can get the SAME feature by adding a much less expensive Blue Ray DVD player with wi-fi. Again, we'll wait a while on that, as its a feature we just don't think we'll use. We have an extensive movie collection already, so netflix isn't of interest, and with only 2 of us in the house, and 2 PC towers, 2 notebooks and an IPad2 at our constant disposal, we really don't need to access the internet on our TV! For the price, this is an excellent buy and I would recommend this TV to anyone!

    We bought a 42 Sony smart tv at 60hz but the people are fuzzy. Then we bought a westinghouse with 120hz. The picture was great but the sound was bad. My option this tv was the best buy. The sound is good the picture is good (120hz) and the price was $70.00 cheaper online then in the store and the store will not match the online prices. If you want the best picture you will need to buy the HD channels. Most of the stores run a disc so you can't compair what the picture is really like until you get it home. However, this tv does not hookup to the internet. I didn't buy a tv to be on the internet.

    This Television is excellent! The color is fantastic. I'm amazed at how it can upscale Analog broadcasts and the DVD replays have rich color and detail. LED back lights work beautifully. There are many features and I'm still learning how to use them. The price is a little steep but Wal-mart was $50 lower than I could find this model listed. The price match clause makes me feel better about spending that much.

    I love this TV. The curved edges of the set make it look totally unique. Right out of the box the picture was exceptional: bright, colorful, and sharp. The picture is customizable; in the menu you can choose from Presets or you can re-set everything from brightness, screen size to individual colors to your own tastes. I have a custom setup for movies that resembles a Preset but is more to my liking. The picture quality is fair with 480p Standard Definition, which is how I receive my satellite tv programs, but it shines with 1080p High Definition movies. I don't have a Blue-Ray player so haven't tested the picture with that. Don't believe the SRS TruSurroundHD feature. The sound is tinny and doesn't even sound like stereo. The SRS TruVolume may work, I can't tell. But again, the sound is customizable. I personally bought a Sony 5.1 Surround Sound audio system and I listen to my TV through that to get REAL surround sound for TV and DVDs. The truth is, the tvs are so thin these days and equipped speakers are so thin you're not going to get decent sound from any of them--especially at this price point. The one design feature I don't understand is that there's a lighted Vizio logo just below the tv screen. It's amber when the tv's off and bright white when it's on. I thought it would be distracting but the screen picture is so big and gorgeous when watching shows or DVD movies I never notice it. This set is a bargain. I've compared the picture to LG, Panasonic and Samsung. It's very close to Samsung, which I consider the best picture on the market. However, it's very close and about $300-400 cheaper. This set had among the brightest pictures on display. It's exactly what I wanted. It also has a learning remote so that the remote can be used with other electronic components. By the same token, the tv can be controlled by other learning remote brands. Highly recommended. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars overall is the sound quality.

    Good Value I purchased this for my husband who had seen it in my daughters home in Orange County. The color is the best ever and the depth of the color at a distance is out of this world it is in a large family room. I have no reservations on the rating it is fire star. I do have very high ceilings and made need to put in a sound system for the people in the farthest back couch. Room is 30 feet in length. He has no complaints! Price is way below comps.
