Vizio VP42 Review

Although this TV doesn?t have burn in protection facilities, it has an amazing image quality and the price is really affordable.

This is one of the best affordable TVs with a great price. It does cost less than any product in its category; however, who would have thought that, when considering image quality, it will be on the second place. This is one of the best TVs when it comes to picture quality; a perfect choice for a picky person with a low budget.

Although the image quality is great and it couldn?t get better for this price, this HDTV actually lacks 1080i or 1080p capabilities. You might get tricked and think that it actually has 1080p even if you have a lot of experience. If this is a feature that you need to have, you will be disappointed because it?s easy to purchase this TV without being aware that it lacks this option. It is not clearly marked to alert potential buyers that the 1080 capabilities are featured in this product.

This great HDTV managed to score high with its video quality. It just looks extremely good. However, a little annoying problem was the fact that facial details were a little glossy but that?s not even noticeable. Other than that, this TV behaved very well on all the other tests and managed to impress us.

The menu is similar to the one found on the Vizio Gallevia GV42LF LCD so if you had one of those you will manage to set up this one. Otherwise, you will need to spend a little more time with your new HDTV because everything is a bit difficult to set up.

Inputs aren?t very accessible and the on screen menu can be very annoying; it has a very small text with annoying colors which make everything difficult to read. Another odd thing about this TV is the fact that as soon as you ran the setup wizard, the TV doesn?t let you run it again, so be careful with the settings you choose.

It doesn?t have many features; it has no headphone jack, no USB port so don?t think that you can listen to music or see any photos on your TV from an external source. Most HDTVs have this option but the Vizio VP42 missed it. Also when searching for channels, it might have problems finding them, even if you know it is receiving them. You will notice that it cannot really identify all the channels there.

A great big screen TV, the Vizio VP42 may be passed over by experienced users who plan to do a lot of things with their flat screens. Unfortunately, with the lack of so many key features such as a simple headphone jack, they may look elsewhere for good and affordable plasma?s and HDTV?s that have a lot more options and features.

Although you have the picture-in-picture option, you might find it very difficult to use as they forgot to put a button for it on the remote control; this is very annoying sometimes.

Like all the plasma sets out there, this one also has a problem with burn-ins. Unfortunately, the manufacturers made no features to prevent burn ins and this only happens to this plasma TV, all the other out there have some sort of burn-in protection.

A representative from Vizio, however, will make sure that you don?t worry about these things because, they say, the Vizio TV has no problems with burn-ins. Considering the very small price, you might want to take that chance and buy this amazing TV.

When it comes to remotes, the Vizio VP42?s remote isn?t the best I ever saw. It has a lot of small annoying buttons which will give you a hard time. Also, they didn?t make it programmable and there is actually no PiP button. Another disadvantage is the fact that it doesn?t glow in the dark, making things a lot harder.

Considering the disadvantages and the advantages, my conclusion is that this TV is worth buying. You will never find this quality for such a small price. It is a great option for any home, and it might prove to be a better investment than other products which are more expensive.
