Bought a 42" Refurb Vizio LCD HDTV from Tigerdirect.com and couldn't be happier.  The Picture is excellent!  It has an auto DPI setting so I get the best Picture possible at all times.   I have my HD Tivo and my HD DVD player hooked up to this TV along with my stero and I am just amazed at the quality.  It has 4 HDMI hookups as well as hook ups for your stero and other components.   I've had this TV now for about 6 months and have not had one problem.  Thanks Vizio for a quality product!!

We love our Vizio HD television!

By 

from Elverta, CA

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

We bought our Vizio 42-inch high-definition television approximately three years ago.  It is just fabulous and we have really enjoyed this product!

It is very well priced, much cheaper than more well-known brands.  I also think that it is a better quality option, making this Vizio television more bang for your buck!

It can be mounted onto the wall, but also has a stand/feet that can be used to prop it up on a table or television stand.

It comes with a remote control, as well as some cables to connect it to a cable box for those of you that have dvr-cable boxes.  The remote allows you to change channels, change the volume, and also change modes (so that you can watch tv, watch movies on a connected dvd player, and even watch programs on a laptop connected through an hdmi cable).

The picture quality is great, both for regular channels and HD channels as well.  We like the size of the screen, the quality of the sound is good too.

Beautiful Picture

By 

from Covington, IN

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

My Husband and I purchased the Vizio VW42L shortly after Christmas about 2 years ago and we have absolutely loved every minute of this television. This is a 42" HD LCD television that has a great picture. We have had no problems what so ever with this television. It is very user friendly for those that may be a little technically challenged. All of the children's gaming consoles can be connected easily, you simply push one button on the remote to reach each of those consoles. Whenever someone new comes over they always compliment the television. It was a really great value price when we purchased it and the television prices have fallen even more since that time. I would reccomend this television to anyone, we now have another Vizio in our home. You will have to purchase the HDMI cable in order to get HD quality. Overall wonderful TV.

Vizio has a great price

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

It is a tv brand with the best price compare to the other brand. The only problem is that when it says it has HD, it doesn't show it sometimes when there are News channel showing in HD. it cuts out some of the word.

Great picture and without a doubt the best TV for the money

By 

from Merrill, WI

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

I am reviewing the 42" HDTV by Visio, I looked long and hard at many HDTV's and after searching all over I feel the Visio has one of the clearest pictures and the best price overall. It was simple to set up and has all the plug ins for anything you need to do. I am very pleased with this TV

Vizio ROCKS

By 

from Letcher, KY

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

*Vizio* a name practically no one had heard two years ago has rocketed to the top of the U.S. HDTV sales game propelled by aggressive pricing and quality products like the **Vizio VW42L 42” LCD HDTV.** Our community of reviewers like the combination of great price, solid feature set, quality image, and outstanding price point. Irvine, California based *Vizio* equipped the sleekly styled black LCD with an integrated HDTV tuner, 1080i, as well as 720p, 480p, 480i support, and 1366x768 maximum resolution. Overall our reviewers highly recommend this (surprisingly) affordable, 42” LCD HDTV from *Vizio.* Read what else our reviewers have to say about the **Vizio VW42L 42” LCD HDTV.**

Wow! The Vizio-VW42L Hd Tv has the sharpest picture I ever saw!

By 

from Richford, NY

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

 I have to say that the Vizio-VW42HDTV has to be on top of the to buy list for this Christmas List this year!!!!!  I bought this wonderful Tv for my husband for his birthday in November of this year.  It was so easy to set up I din't even have to read the instructions at all.  You could mount this to what ever wall you want and also comes with a stand if you prefer.  Which I think is a nice feature of the TV.  So when we turned it on....we were amazed.  The picture was so clear and focused.  Nothing had to be done at all.  The remote is easy to handle.  The outside of the TV has a sleek modern look to it.  Which went with my decore.  Oh' I am also a bargain hunter.  I shopped in a number of places before I decided to purchase the Vizio-VW42HDTV.This was the best value.  An the TV just looks great in the room.  An I am also ready for the big HD only use in Febuary 2009.  So go to the store and see if you see the difference in a Execellent TV or just a TV an let me know!

Great bang for your buck

By 

from Cookeville, TN

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

The ***Vizio - VW42L HDTV Television ***was a great deal.  I had looked around at different brands and models and this was the best for my family and I.  I have referred this tv to a few friends and would refer it again.  I'm very happy with everything about it.  It was simple to set up and has numerous inputs for different sources.  I love plugging in my computer while using photoshop.  You can really see excellent detail.

Great purchase for the price

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Vizio - HDTV Television:

After research various flat screen televisions, my husband and I chose the Vizio -VW42L HDTV for our den area.  It is the perfect fit into our wall unit as we chose not to wall mount.  Picture is beautiful and even better with our blue-ray.

The remote is not as user friendly as my husband would like, because he has to hunt for everything he is looking for but he's also used to using the satelite remote.

 all in all, I think this is a great television
