>> Hi there, I'm David Katzmaier, senior editor from
cnet.com and I'm with the Vizio GV42LF. This is a 1080
P LCD HDTV flat panel, one of the least expensive on the
market as you'd expect from Vizio. They've always been
a price leader. Vizio also uses the same styling with
this TV as they do on other models. It's glossy-black
around the edge of the screen and below there's this
speaker here -- actually the speaker can be detached on
this model which is a nice feature if you just want to
have the black around the screen and as minimal as an
aesthetic as you can. Of course the set also comes with
a matching silver stand here. Vizio redesigned its
remote. The remote is a little nicer than before. It's
got a glossy-black and silver to match the TV itself.
You press the Menu button, you'll find a good selection
of picture-effecting items in the menu system including
the ability to swing the back light back and forth and
also to adjust the color temperature control in a
fine-tuning way, which we really like. Around back
you'll find a solid selection of inputs including two
HGMI, two component video, and one PC input. Nice touch
on a TV at this price level. Picture quality of the
Vizio, again, has its good and bad points. It's
black-level performance was actually relatively good for
an inexpensive LCD, but on the flip-side its color
accuracy not quite as good as we'd like to see,
especially in dark areas it turned a little bit red.
The video processing, on the other hand, was fine.
Although we did see a little bit more artifacting in
standard def than we'd like to see, but overall
relatively good performance for an inexpensive LCD.
Anyway, that's a quick look at the Vizio GV42LF.
