Vizio SV420M Review: 42” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Vizio SV420M LCD TV. This is indeed a good-looking product from Vizio. It is a slim black bezel with the Vizio name inscribed at the bottom of the set. A review suggests that the Vizio SV420M has 1080p resolution. This will allow for excellent picture quality and sharp pictures. The images will seem to be very natural. To add tom it is the 120Hz SmoothMotion technology which will display the images without any judder. The images will be very smooth and crisp.
The Vizio SV420M has 50,000:1 contrast ratio which means sharp pictures and greater black levels. The black levels portray the blackest of colors and in doing so bring out the natural clarity of the images. This efficient contrast ratio does not interfere with the low power consumption. This HDTV sports energy levels much lower than the specified Energy Star ratings. You can safely save a few dollars here. This also has a healthy impact on our environment.

With the SRS TruSurround HD™, the audio is just outstanding. The bass performance is very good and so is the clarity of dialogues. You can hear what your favorite stars are saying with distinct clarity. The Vizio SV420M also has SRS TruVolume which controls the variations in the sound levels. The advertisements will not sound too loud or there will not be a sudden rise of sound level while changing channels. This is very annoying to the ears and Vizio has done a good job by improving it.
There are 8 times more high definition inputs which also includes 4 HDMI connections. This is quite a number of inputs which will make your Vizio SV420M the most “connected”. There is also an integrated tuner which will grasp the incoming free signals from the air. The 178 degree viewing angle will ensure that you can sit in any part of the room. The color and image quality will be almost the same everywhere. You can close your eyes and purchase the Vizio SV420M. It will certainly give you value for money.
