CNet has done a review on Vizio’s 42-inch VP422 plasma HDTV. Priced at $799.99, the Vizio VP422 offers 720p 1024 x 720 resolution, 1500 cd/m2 brightness, 30000:1 contrast ratio and 178-degree viewing angle.
CNET has given 6.5 points out of 10 and comments:
The good: Extremely inexpensive for a 42-inch plasma; plenty of connectivity with three HDMI and one PC input; accurate color decoding; relatively clean image with little low-level video noise.
The bad: No aspect ratio control for HD sources; highly inaccurate green primary color and poor grayscale tracking mar overall color accuracy.
The bottom line: The Vizio VP422 is a 42-inch plasma with a rock-bottom price tag and picture quality that, while certainly not perfect, should satisfy casual viewers.
