Although the Vizio VT420M lacks some of the options found in other HDTVs, it outperforms the competition where it really matters, in image quality.
Paired with superb surround-sound-emulation speakers, the set excels with its excellent brightness and contrast, and it handles motion well. The VT420M includes a headphone jack, and it supports multimedia playback from a USB thumb drive.
We really like the Pause Live TV feature, where you can pause the show you're watching by initiating recording for up to 30 minutes. The high image quality makes this 42-inch LCD HDTV a standout set with an attractive price.
