Vizio VS420: 42

I can’t seem to find a decent image for the VS420. That’s just poor marketing by Vizio! But, here are the specs: the VS420 has a pixel format of 1920 x 1080 so that means you can send it 1080p signals, if you can find enough of them. The contrast ratio of 1000:1 is very good and the brightness of 500 cd/m2 will probably make you turn it down a bit. Response time of 8ms is a bit on the slow side and you will definitely see a bit of motion blur when you’re watching sports. But overall the VS420 is a pretty decent 42″ LCD TV that can take 1080p for the price: $698 at Sam’s Club.
