Vizio VP42HDTV Review


I was always skeptical of the Vizio brand since it's so new, but after good review after good review, as well as watching some HD NCAA games, I'm convinced they make some amazing sets for an unbelievable price. C|Net's got some gripes with it, but nothing that can't be overshadowed by its benefits.


Adjusting the Vizio for optimum picture quality in our darkened room, we really appreciated the ability to tweak the color temperature beyond the standard presets–of which Cool was strangely the most accurate–usually it's the Warm setting. Using those controls, we were able to get the TV quite close to the 6,500K standard.
