Vizio E420VO LCD Television Review-Simple But Solid

March 28, in television

This week we’re going to run through some LCD televisions, for those of you out there looking to put a little extra life in your home theater system but not drop a lot of cash doing it. The Vizio E420VO is going to be a pretty good starter model for you–solid on the basics but lacking in the really advanced features.

The Vizio E420VO is a forty two inch 1080p LCD television that offers digital ambient lighting technology which adjusts brightness levels according to conditions in the room, two ten watt speakers backed up by SRS TruVolume and SRS TruSurround HD, two HDMI ports, one component input, one composite input, an RF input, a PC input, an SPDIF Digital Optical output, a stereo audio output and a USB port.

You’ll see right off that many things you might expect are missing. There’s no Ethernet jack or wi-fi capability for your streaming video experience, there are in fact minimal ports altogether, making you need to consider a pretty hefty receiver to handle everything you might want, and there aren’t any especially fancy features here in general. But the picture does look nice at that 1080p level, the sound is even better (SRS does amazing things for speakers) and in general, this is a solid model for the basic, entry-level home theater, which is what a lot of us are looking at right now by virtue of the fact that we’re all watching our pennies these days.

The good part is that you can get this one out at Amazon for four hundred ninety eight dollars, which means you won’t need very many of those pennies you’re watching to get this one on your entertainment center.

The Vizio E420VO may not be the best television you’ll ever see, but it will be one of the better values you’ll find out there if for no other reason than you’ll get quite a bit of television for not a whole lot of money.
