Vizio M420NV Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $26 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual electricity use is 3.8 kWh per inch of screen size. This is more energy efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 9 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has more key features than average and ranks in the top 28% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Vizio M420NV Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV. – Vizio M420NV Review
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 120 Hz (120 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Vizio M420NV Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Vizio television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This Vizio HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Vizio TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Vizio HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 2″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – Vizio M420NV Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Vizio M420NV Review
HDMI Provides 7 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
