Love My Vizio TV

By 

from Haughton, LA

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

I love my VIZIO tv that we bought a couple of years ago. We have enjoyed the high quality, the clear picture and the sturdy structure of the whole unit.

Picture Quality
The picture is nice and sharp, especially on the hd channels. I love that you can see the picture clearly even when sitting beside the tv. You don't have to sit directly in front of the tv to see the picture quality.

Sound Quality
The sound quality is great, but the sound comes from the back. We bought a Vizio sound bar to go on the front of it. The sound gets real loud on it, but it just comes from the back of the tv instead of the front. We like to put on the sound bar and hear it come from the front, it just enhances the sound quality of the tv.

Durability
It is a very sturdy tv. It has been hit with a few balls but it has not been broken or nicked. It doesn't topple and not top heavy. It sets good and flat on the entertainment center.

Design
I love the design, It is all black and it is a slim line, so it doesn't take up much room at all. Everything is clean and nicely streamlined. It fits real close to the wall with enough space for ventilation but that is all. it doesn't take up a bunch of room but is big enough to be seen in the whole room. The design of the screen is to where you can sit beside the tv and still see the picture. Love that!

Performance
We have had no trouble out of the TV performing on all levels. We haven't found a thing about it that doesn't perform correctly. We have used the internet, dvd, menu, hooked up a wii game and an older game system with it, it works great on all of them. We have no problem with watching movies thru dvr. We love it.

Great television for my bedroom

By 

from USA

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

This television was a gift to replace my old dinosaur of a 27 inch television from the nineties. My children take over the television in the living room and sometimes I just do not want to watch cartoons. The picture is great, the sound is perfect for watching my shows. I do not need a television hooked up to surround sound or speakers or anything like that. I just want to watch my shows. It is mounted to the wall with a pivoting wall mount that we purchased as opposed to using the stand that came with the television. It does not look all that sturdy especially when you have young children and I prefer to be able to swivel my screen depending on where I am sitting. I have had this set since April 2013 and I still have not tried any of the smart features but it was easy to hook up to Dish Network and the over the air picture is also clear if I want to watch channels that I cannot get with my satellite.

Great smart tv to watch netflix movies on!

By 

from USA

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

I really like this TV. Its great for watching Netflix movies on. I also like the fact that you can connect to Facebook. You can download apps and play games as well. I also like that you can plug in your cell phone to charge it, if your other outlet plugs are being used. It would be even better if it had a DVD player built into the side, so that you had less plugs.

Picture Quality
The picture quality is great. Its clear and easy to see. Its like watching a movie at the theatres.

Sound Quality
The sound is great! Would be even better if you have surround sound. I have had no problems with the sound and you can even hear it when its at level 1.

Design
I really like that I can hang it on the wall so that my kids don't break it or get fingerprints on the screen. I also like how thin it is and how it isn't really heavy to move like a regular box TV. I like how the power buttons are in the back, so that my kids can't turn it on/off or turn it up real loud.

Stunning and a cheap product that delivers great quality.

By

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

I gave this a 9 because it's got a great picture that will last a long time. The only one little flaw is that the stand that comes with it is very flimsey and barely supports the tv. If are going to put this on a wall then you'll have no worries.

Picture Quality
Very vibrant colors and stunning picture that looks great and seems like it will last for many hours and many years. The conrast and color might need a few adjustments out of the box but once you find the correct adjustments it's perfect.

Sound Quality
It's OK but pretty much needs a sound bar for that richer sound.

Durability
A little flmsey plastic but is still great

Design
Very plain and kind of boring casing and seems to be very boxee and just a plain black finish.

Performance
Seems like this TV will go on forever and ever. The only thing is that sometimes when you hit "wide" on the remote it will sometimes shut off the TV but that's very rare and doesn't really happen too often at all.

Great if you don't have cable and don't mind slow transitioning

By

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

We have had this TV for a few months now. We bought it because we do not have cable, but do have Netflix and it seemed easier buy this than to hook our computer up to our TV. It works well and we have had no glitches but it is very slow to load your 'app'. Also as apps are added your software must update and Vizio is extremely slow about getting this out. You can call customer service to have them push the update through, but that is kind of a pain too. Overall a good purchase for the money

The Semi-Smart TV

By 

from USA

Comments about Vizio 42" LED Smart TV E420I-A1:

This Smart TV was much less productive than anticipated. It of course works on some levels, but it needs some serious work on the remote control & remote control sensor.

Picture Quality
The picture/video quality is fantastic. Very clear, no pixelated images. This is the one aspect of the television that I really like.

Sound Quality
The sound quality is good...when it has sound. Sometimes if the TV is turned off & turned back on in one motion, the sound for some reason doesn't work. I usually have to turn the TV off a few more times OR unplug the TV & reboot it. Sometimes, I'll just turn the TV on in hopes of using it after I wake up & want to relax after a bad night's sleep, when I turn the TV on sometimes there isn't any sound for no reason at all.

Durability
The television's durability is questionable. I'd say it is satisfactory, only because it hasn't broke yet & its been through a few moves. Although, the frame has loosened & become rickety.

Design
The design is not too bad, but I believe that making a sturdier base would prevent the device from becoming rickety.

Performance
Over all, the performance is not good. I'll be using the Netflix application that came installed on the television, & all of a sudden it decides to just shut the application off. Netflix would have no issues nor would my internet connection, each time I'd check both just to make sure since I don't have money for a new TV. Secondly, the sound issues of having the television muted for no reason is a large problem. I really wouldn't recommend this Smart TV to anyone because well... it's not a very smart decision.
