Fantastic TV for the price!
I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
What else do you wan for the price?
If you want a large screen for a cheap price, stop here. This TV might not have all of the bells and whistles that Samsung or Sony offer, but you also are not paying anywhere near those prices, either. This TV offers a great picture at a great price (at 40"), and for my money that is all that I really care about.
Good picture quality, Relatively slim design
A few minor quirks aside, we think this Vizio TV provides real value. The E420i-A0's solid picture quality, useable on-board audio and impressive Smart TV interface make it a product we'd be happy to have at the center of our home theater. Those looking to move into the 1080p Smart TV arena without breaking the bank will find the Vizio E420i-A0 a formidable contender.
Beautiful TV for the money!
I bought this as a second TV for another room in our house. My main TV is a 58" Samsung Plasma That I purchased a few years ago for a lot more money than this one.
One of the things I wanted in a new TV was Wi-Fi, but I didn't want to pay a lot of money. Fortunately, I got some advice from a local dealer who said to pick a cheaper TV that had good picture quality, then buy a Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi and save yourself a ton of money.
I took his advice and found this TV.
Viewing angle on this LG is also one of its strengths
We wanted to love the LG PN6500. It has a lot going for it: good looks, accurate colors, an incredibly wide viewing angle, and terrific motion performance. But a terrible contrast ratio ruins the entire package. What's worse, this is a plasma TV, which means it should have a rich, dark black level. The fact that it doesn't is troublesome.
LG's LED displays usually have poor black levels and incredibly bright white levels to make up for them.
Very good sense of 2D picture depth
I mean if you just want a good 1080p HD picture for a darker room at home how can you beat $849? You cant. If you are not interested in 3D, Smart TV or any of the fanciest features that higher end TVs have to offer and just want a good sports or movie TV then the 60PN6500 could be the answer. You certainly get great savings from 1) going plasma and 2) foregoing all the extra features. There still plenty of HDMI inputs and connectivity options.
Great TV, Takes a little setup to get a great picture, but looks amazing once it is done!
The setup was very quick and it had no issues connecting to my Wi-Fi. I had the TV up and running in about 15 minuets after its arrival at my door. Netflix is much better than it is on my xbox and loads quickly even with my slower DSL connection. I have not tried the 3D settings yet, but 2D looks great. I also have it hooked up to my surround sound and so I have no idea what the TV audio actually sounds like. I'm sure it isn't any better than any other flat screen TV.
Offers the comfort of a big HDTV with an affordable price tag
At the end of the day, it seems that LG 42LM3700 is quite a good buy. It offers the basic functionality of a modern HDTV for an affordable price. Whatever you want to do with it, you'll most probably be satisfied with it.
Conversion of 2D to 3D picture effect
Large screen helps in optimal viewing experience of movies in a bigger screen, and even in a HD mode with better clarity. In addition to this, the latest technology of LG Cinema 3D, the viewers are able to transform the 2D version of visuals into advanced 3D version, by controlling the depth of the picture. Stunning and enhanced three-dimensional entertaining system has provided an added edge to the device by LG, model number 42LM3700.
You WILL be dazzled!!!
Take my advice and go check this model out for yourself! Just be prepared to be DAZZLED and don't be surprised if you end up signing your life away to get one! These new 4K resolution HDTV's are game changers, just like the original 720/1080p sets were. Sony's upconversion with their X-Reality PRO chip is TOP NOTCH , the build quality is great , the sound is WAY WAY above average and the color/detail is out of this world.
Was looking to trade up from my old big clunker of a tube TV to a new streamlined flat screen, and after all the investigating (there were hours of it) I decided on this Westinghouse 40'. It was the cheapest in it's category, and out of all the stores and web sites I tried. The only other place who had it for $299.00 was Best Buy, but on Amazon I got to save myself the $20.00 in tax ( I live in Taxachussetts). I have had it for over a month now with no issues so far.
Overall I am extremely happy with my choice. I don't understand the issues other reviewers have had; maybe these were earlier production units and these glitches have been resolved on later units. I don't think there is a better set out there for $479. Outstanding value and I highly recommend if you are in the market for a 40" tv.
Smart, supports a 1080p native resolution
The Vizio E551i-A2 ($829) is never going to claim the title of Home Theater King with its poor uniformity and judder-prone motion, but it deserves some serious accolades. For what you're paying, you could probably get a 50-inch dumb TV from other manufacturers. Vizio is tossing in an extra five inches of screen and easy access to Netflix, Hulu, and Facebook - more or less for free.
We think that's awesome.
Good for sports viewing, High-def
For those that are looking for a solid Full HD television that offer high quality viewing, then the Vizio E401i-A2 is probably something to consider. Serious sport fans and those that are into fast action movies will love this TV.
