Vizio VP422 Reviewed: Great Value, Good Performance

6-25-08-vp422(2).jpgIf you've wandered around the electronics section of any of 3400 US Wal-mart's lately you may have seen the 42-inch Vizio VP422 LCD TV sitting on the shelves. The low-cost set, priced at $799.99, is about as cheap as a 42-inch set can possibly get currently but we wonder whether or not the performance of the VP422 makes the dollar savings really worth it. The fine folks over at CNET have put the Vizio set through the ringer and were actually quite impressed with its performance given it's pricetag. Obviously not Kuro-like or anything but good enough for the average home theater user. On the upside the set has tons of connectivity options, accurate color decoding, and a crisp picture with little noise. On the downside is the VP422's lack of aspect ratio control for HD sources and noticeably inaccurate color reproduction thanks to inaccurate greens and poor grayscale tracking. Overall the problems aren't enough to say that "you get what you pay for" with the VP422--you definitely get more.
