    I've never heard of it before. Is it as good as Sanyo or RCA? What is the picture quality I should expect? (comparing it to a samsung or sony) Do these break or stop working easily? As I said before, never heard of this brand before.

    • A. go to cnet.com for reviews on all sorts of stuff... If you look at a sony and vizio TV with the same specs the sony is more simply because you are buying the name of sony... (that and sony and other well known companies like samsung have better sound quality) Vizio is a new brand trying to get their name out there and establish themselves so they put really good TVs on the market at very low prices... overall Vizios are good TVs but they are new so you're taking a bit of a risk read more on cnet.com

    • A. I have been reading hundreds of reviews on all sizes of Vizio TVs. There is one review on the WalMart site that states that Vizio is made by Samsung. I do know by the reviews I have been reading that the Vizio is supposed to be better than the Sanyo. (according to most of the reviews that are posted.) I am also looking to purchase an HDTV myself & it won't be a Sanyo.I hope this helps.

    So this TV looks great and the one I purchsed worked fine for about 2 months. However, we started having a variety of issues. One is with the sound. Volumes levels jump around like crazy within a show. We use the built-in speakers and sometimes we'd have to turn the volume up to 100 to hear dialog. Then music or commercials would start and we'd get blasted. I finally solved the issue by turning every sound control feature off (dynamics, stereo, etc.). Plain old mono sounds OK, but its not what you'd expect from an HDTV. Worse still the picture has completely degraded. We use a HD cable box and a Blue Ray DVD and both sources display a color issue where color transitions look pixelated (very blocky transitions with defined lines marking shading switches). Very dark or light areas also get strange color aliasing where there will be blue-green patches in the extreme highlights (see uploaded images). I've created a ticket with Vizio support and documented the issue with snapshots. I hope they'll make it right. But my advice is to stay away from this HDTV.

    Check out the Video posted below.. thats my TV after not many weeks of use. When I bought this TV I was pretty excited. I did my research and for the price and with its specs it was a fantastic television. I was pleased by it for awhile, but however the back light kicked out and it constantly flickers, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, Vizio is willing to replace it however the process does take FOREVER I have been given so many different case numbers in order to get this done I can't believe it. I have been trying to replace it for two weeks now and I have more person to go through (or so I was told) once i give them my case number they'll set up a time to replace it. I paid 800 bucks for this TV and was greatly pleased til this problem. As much as I like it I know many other people who have Sony's and Samsungs. None of them have had this problem. So with regret.. I say, stay away from this product.

    This Vizio 120 Hz 42" TV has an excellent picture that is just as good as (and sometimes better) than the 42" 120hz Sony or Samsung for a MUCH MUCH lower price. What a bargain!! Unlike Samsung, the Vizio screen is low glare, and the picture is clear and bright even when the afternoon sun shines in the windows. The on screen menu takes some fine tuning. I highly recommend turning OFF the smooth-motion. Movies just look... wrong. ("Jaws" with smooth-motion looked totally bizarre - like a soap opera.) Even with the smooth-motion off, the picture is FANTASTIC. It never judders or whatever. Make sure you set the correct option (480, 720, 1080 etc) for your signal. Ours sat on 480 for months before I figured out how to adjust it to 1080. It's in the Vizio onscreen menu. You'll LOVE this TV -- It is hands down the BEST PICTURE for this price.

    Purchased this TV after looking at other 42 - 47 models for hours. For the money this is hands down the best deal out there. This model was sitting next to another 42" 1080i model that was only 60Hz. In Wal Mart they were running video clips of a baseball game and the image of the ball flying through the air with the crowd in the background was the best comparison I could have asked for. With the 60Hz model the crowd was extremely pixilated almost like lego blocks. With this model's 120Hz the same crowd shot was smooth with little to no pixelation and the best part is the price difference between these TV's was only $100. Setup at home was super easy. The base was already attached to the TV so all I had to do was connect the HDMI cables and turn it on. The advanced video options are enough to satisfy most anyone's video preferences. I won't comment on the sound as I am using a surround sound system for sound so I rarely use the built in speakers, although they sound pretty good for most news programs etc. Standard def TV image is a little grainy, but that's to be expected. I have Direct TV with the HD package and the High Def programming picture quality is awsome. I have a couple of 22" 720P TV's and the picture quality on this model blows them away. Bottom line this TV is excellent for price and picture quality. A must buy.

    This is my third Vizio television. I have been happy with 2/3 of them. Read my review on the 37" class eco and you'll understand. I replaced the 37" with this product, the SV42OM, and have been very pleased. It is understood, that wen one buys discount electronics, then you should expect discount features. However, I'd say for the dollar amount, this is the best TV in its class, I recommend you use the television with a speaker system or sound bar. The internal speakers, although adequate, are the weakest feature with this television. I have mine hooked up digital optical to a 5.1 surround sound. I am using HDMI with a PS3 and HDTV receiver for video. I have a nintendo wii connected via AV connections. All peripherals run smoothly. The HD picture quality, especially 1080P on bluray, is exceptional. Sports programs run with no real noticeable blurring. I challenge anyone to compare these TVs with others within their price range and $500 above. I feel you will not be disappointed. Great product.

    I bought the Vizio 42" Class 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, SV420M television, and am amazed at how beautiful, sharp, and clear the picture is. I thought that this television was extremely easy to set up; I simply plugged it into the power outlet and satellite box, clicked on the HDM1 setting, turned it on, and there it was. I am particularly impressed with the range of viewing...good seats almost anywhere and on either side of it.

    I’ve had the TV less than a month... and now I have a serious backlight issue. When you turn the TV on, after about 20 minutes, the picture will start to FLICKER... the longer it's on, the more flickering it does. It gets to the point where it’s unwatchable. (I googled this issue – and it seems many people have experienced the same problem) Vizio acknowledged the problem – and said they will replace the TV - but the process is taking FOREVER – and at this point the flickering is so bad, I don’t even bother turning on the TV. I may return it to WALMART – as I’m not too happy with the Vizio brand. Just my 2 cents. But I have to say – before the flickering – the TV was beautiful! The picture was amazing.
