    Vizio VP422 Flat-panel TV/Monitor


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The new Vizio VP422 has received a great deal of interest from the massive consumer market. Of course, this 42” plasma TV/monitor is not exactly the greatest innovation in display technology we’ve ever seen. In fact, it is not even all that great of an implementation of old technology. Keep reading for why we think it's still worth a look.

    Introduction

    What really makes the newest television from Vizio so great, according to cybertheater.com , is that it is being offered for an unprecedented $799. The VP422 and its smaller sibling, the VP322, are both great innovations in low-priced technology which Vizio is hoping to throw into the market to make a big splash.

    For anyone that has been looking at the new HD plasma televisions with wide eyes but has been scared away by the enormous price tags associated with the sets, the Vizio VP422 is akin to a godsend. The television basically offers everything that the average consumer could want: a large 42" screen, High Definition technology, and the remarkably small and light construction that has become associated with plasma technology. All in all, if you are looking for a cheap high-tech television, you have to get in your car and go to Wal-mart right now to pick up a VP422.

    On the down side, the VP422 has received almost deplorable ratings in the category of video quality. CNet claims that this 42" plasma TV will be an extreme disappointment to anyone who considers themselves a videophile. Other than the poor picture quality associated with the display, it also is somewhat lacking in the field of extra features. Of course, you would expect that sort of shortfall from such an inexpensive product, but the weakness still exists.

    Overall analysis: the Vizio VP422 is an excellent choice for the casual TV viewer who is just looking to upgrade and join the higher end of the technology spectrum. For anyone with more refined tastes in their television viewing pleasure, the VP422 is not even worth the small price tag, and you would be much better off investing in a much more expensive and higher quality set.
