Introduction

Meet the VIZIO M420SV, a low mid-range television set that places much of its draw in its internet features, but has a few non-performance related annoyances that make the experience a somewhat forgettable one. Despite this, the Vizio does manage to give decent picture performance for its price point, which may be enough for the entry-level user.
