I did A LOT of research for a replacement HDTV, and the reviews for Vizio are usually quite good, so that's where we went. It took about 15 minutes to install, really simple operation. 42 inches is really a good middle of the road size, not too big, and not as small as the 30 inch TV we replaced.
The picture quality is excellent, great for gaming and HDTV. I also like it has a component cable hookup so I can play my PS2 and Wii on it, along with my 360 on the multiple HDMI hookups. The basic sound is also pretty good for a flatscreen (I've read some people complain, but the basic stereo sounds great to me. It's not as good as my surround sound, but for basic audio it works fine).
I know some TVs have a lot of bonus stuff (like Wifi for Netflix, higher HZ rates, or 3D), but I find all of these things overrated. If you treat your TV as one would use a computer monitor, or just to show quality video for sports and TV shows, this is the right TV for you! I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a good quality HDTV (and Walmart had the best price for this size and brand).
