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.
