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  • A. The E422VLE is replacing the E422VL, it is a newer version of the E422VL.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.

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

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've seen the complaints on the reviews and took it all into account when buying this TV. I've had it for a few weeks now and am completely satisfied with it. Our apartment's living room isn't very large and we have neighbors so the sound is great! I can get why people complain but if you have a small space it's great The quality of hooking up my computer to it and using it as a DVD player has been phenomenal. I also saw the complaints about the wireless and I agree it is an issue. But I ended up hooking up my TV by ethernet to my wireless modem and it's ridiculously fast. Netflix is amazing. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

I had been doing research for a new TV and decided to go with a Wi-Fi ready one. Vizio had the best price on the market for a 1080p 120Hz HDTV. I am not disappointed with the picture or quality. It was very easy to set up, and even though the remote seems small, it is easy to use and has everything you need. My one disappointment is the Internet Apps, I know they are in their infantcy and the manufacturer is influenced by these Apps providers, but I would like to surf the web and be able to save favorites (there is a lot of free TV on the internet) and with the built in keyboard that Vizio provides thu its remote, it could be done. I hate cable and their prices!

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!

After 6 months i began to have problems. Vizio tech could not resolve problem and sent me a REFURBISHED one. Again the sound volumn changed by itself, a permanent black line appeared on the screen and never went away. I contacted Vizio and explained the problem. They advised me that the TV replacement was not fit for return and offeren to send me yet another refurbished TV. Reluctantly I said yes if all the money I paid for the 2 year warranty was transferrable. The rude email responder said it was not transferrable and said the could send me a check for 4 hundred some odd dollars if I wanted. I said "SEND ME MY MONEY". Customer service is very poor. At no time did I receive a NEW tv replacement. Warranty work is performed by and outside contractor and a different department so you get thr run around.

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.

I have a 37" VIZIO in my bedroom and just loved the quality, so decided to get this 42" for my family room when the old SONY gave out. This has such great features and the screen is SO clear! The SMART TV is new to me and absolutely love it! I have VUDU and HULU and other programs that are loaded on it and just love it! You will NOT go wrong with this brand of TV, no matter what size you get!!

Took it out of the box, easy setup to the network and ran great for two days then the remote stopped working. You can't do anything with it. Wouldn't work with universal remote either. It's something with the TV itself. Coincidentally we bought two Vizio TVs, one for the kids room and that remote stopped working the day before!. Taking them both back tot he store. Do your googling! This is a VERY common problem with Vizio TVs.
