Internet-Ready Television

Internet-ready TVs use your broadband connection to deliver dynamic content, whether it's streaming video from Netflix, new music from Pandora, or a quick glance at today's weather forecast.

Although there is overlap, each manufacturer offers a unique bundle of free or paid services, including streaming video and music, social networking apps, online photo galleries, news and financial updates, weather info, sports scores, and a variety of other smartphone-like applications.

Manufacturers continue to add new content to their offerings, keeping customers current through firmware updates, and making a bit of research a prudent step in your buying decision.

Learn more about Internet TVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at our Internet TV 101 customer center.

Get instant access to premium online entertainment through VIZIO's 42-inch class M420SV. VIZIO Internet Apps allows you to tap into an almost unlimited library of movies, TV shows, music, and more, with built-in Wi-Fi and an enhanced two-sided QWERTY remote. This TV also boasts 1080p Full HD resolution, four HDMI inputs for your high-def sources, edge-lit Razor LED backlighting for brilliant clarity in a razor thin design, and SRS StudioSound HD, for the immersive audio to match.

Vizio M420SV
Instant access to premium entertainment in a brilliant LED-backlit display.

Instant, Connected Entertainment

42-Inch Display With Razor LED Backlighting

Edge-Lit Razor LED backlighting delivers brilliant clarity, vivid color and contrast, and an impressively slim form factor of just two inches, for the full visual experience.

Enjoy your high-definition sources in Full HD 1080p resolution, with a 200,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, for a clear, detailed picture with deeper blacks and brighter whites throughout your programming.

VIZIO Internet Apps

Easily connect to the Internet and stream movies and TV shows, listen to music and get the latest news, sports and weather. The M420SV connects wirelessly over an 802.11n Wi-Fi connection (or via a built-in Ethernet port if you'd prefer) to your home network. Once you're set up, you'll enjoy access to Internet content such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and VUDU for streaming TV shows and movies; Pandora Internet Radio for discovering new music; your favorite social networking apps like Twitter or Facebook; photo-sharing services like Flickr and Picasa; and the latest news from the Associated Press and The New York Times. With a simple Internet connection, you'll get all that and plenty more.

VIZIO Internet Apps Screen
VIZIO Internet Apps gives you a wealth of connected entertainment options.
VIZIO 120Hz
120Hz refresh rate, for more clarity during fast-motion video.
Enhanced QWERTY Remote

The M420SV also ships with an enhanced two-sided remote. Up top you'll appreciate one-button access to Amazon Instant Video, Netlix, and Vudu. Flip it over and you get a full QWERTY keypad, for easy data-entry, search, or updating those ever-important social network statuses.

120Hz Smooth Motion

120Hz Smooth Motion technology delivers 120 scenes per second, producing an enhanced frame rate for smooth, super-sharp viewing, for fast-action sports and movies that are free of motion blur.

Optimal Viewing in Any Light

No matter your lighting arrangement, you'll always have the best picture possible thanks to built-in ambient light sensing technology. The M420SV automatically adjusts backlight levels based on its surroundings to optimize levels. The result is a balanced picture that will never appear washed out or too bright.

Four HDMI Ports With Audio Return Channel

Four HDMI ports accommodate your home theater setup, Blu-ray Player, gaming console, and satellite or cable TV, for a wealth of Full HD entertainment. These also feature the HDMI 1.4 spec Audio Return Channel, meaning you can send audio back to your home theater receiver on the same cable, rather than using the separaate S/PDIF output.

VIZIO Ambient Light Sensor
Built-in ambient light sensing technology ensures you'll have a great picture in any lighting.
Spectacular Surround Sound

Treat yourself to an audio experience to match that HD video. StudioSound HD provides immersive surround sound over stereo speakers, complete with deep bass and crisp high-frequency details. It also effectively levels abrupt volume fluctuations, to deliver crystal-clear dialogue throughout programming. The end result is a complete and truly engaging theater-like experience over the built-in stereo speakers.

ECO HD

VIZIO's ECO HD label means this HDTV exceeds the current ENERGY STAR Guidelines, saving you money on your utility bills while limiting your carbon footprint.

In addition, this display's backlight is more than other backlighting methods, since LED edge lights do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance.

i purchased this 42" vizio tv a couple of weeks ago and so far i am very happy. it has great color i love the internet apps, the high def looks great and even the 3d is stunning. after much research, i found the amazon price very reasonable compared to other vendors, especially considering the fact that i did not have to pay any sales tax and shipping and handling were free. setup was basically easy (i am not real technically inclined) and we had the tv up and running within 20 or so minutes.

i have a few minor complaints but still feel this tv warrants five stars. they are:

1. the sound is not the richest, but most flat screens will have sound which is inferior to a home theater system. thus, i purchased a sony home theatre for my visio and am very happy. cost of the home theater from amazon; $257.

2. the tv takes a little while to come on. i don't know if that is particular to this brand/model since this is the first flat screen i have owned.

3. if you have little children, the tv base that comes with it is not real stable and the tv could possibly be tipped easily. of course if you are hanging it on a wall, this is not an issue. be sure to have your tv on a solid level stand so it will not tend to tip.

other than that i am very pleased with the quality and price of my new tv. now i just hope i don't become a couch potato and gain 50 pounds with my new little toy.

oh yes, one idea i've tried which i really like. i've been storing tons of digital photos on a couple of computers for years. they were really not organized much and i seldom viewed them. since the vizio will play photos or music from its usb ports, i purchased a 16 mb thumb drive and put literally thousands of photos on it, arranged in various folders.

I spent months looking for a TV and finally found this one. After comparing different models i decided on this one for the price. The LED LCD screen at 42" is big enough for all your needs, home theater, casual watching, video games. its excellent, the TV is light and thin due to it being a flat screen and all :P. easy to use menu and set up. the only downside is you cannot turn off the WiFi on it. which tbh isnt really a down side. ive owned it for 2 months now and love it, so my suggestion if you are looking for a TV this is the one

This is my first HDTV after looking and researching for months. There is not much bad I can say about it. Picture is excellent, price is great, and apps are a great addition to the already amazing package. Vizio has upped their game recently and this shows it. I highly recommend it.

This is the best TV I have ever owned. The picture quality as by far the clearest and sharpest around. I work for Verizon Fios and install TV service. I see about 20 different tvs a day 5 days a week, and of all the sets ive seen nothing can come close to matching this quality. The internet app service gives me everything I need at my fingertips. The full qwerty keyboard on the reverse side of the provided remote is a big plus. Setup was a breeze and I'm all set ready to watch anything if its the big game or the news.

Our huge and heavy "old-school" TV finally gave out and we had to enter the 21st century and HDTV. Did a lot of research and this looked like the best fit for us in terms of features, size and price. The picture is crisp and clear, and the colors and brilliant and vibrant. Setup was a snap. We were able to get rid of a switch box that we needed with our old analog set, and with the internet apps -- we no longer need our Roku (although we'd very much like to see Vizio extend its apps to some other services). The only disappointment was our old legacy VCR (as we've still got a few films which aren't available on DVD or streaming anywhere) which because the set has the 3 component video and not the one video RCA slot, just can't be hooked up directly. Overall, very pleased with our decision. Our living room gets a lot of light during the day, and the picture is just as great then as it is with the lights out. The low energy consumption was another plus for us, plus with the fact that we now have two fewer devices plugged in, this will additionally lower our power use. This set has brought new life to our viewing. We don't have a Blu-ray yet so all of these comments are based on viewing that isn't even at its highest resolution. People who've bought other sets have seen ours and have been impressed with the quality and said they'd look into a Vizio themselves in the future. All-in-all a terrific purchase that we have been enjoying tremendously.

Pros:

(1) The LCD has good clarity, and detail.

(2) The LCD also looks to have a good refresh rate.

(3) The TV is very thin and light, the product page says
its 26.6lbs without the stand, and 29.5lbs with the stand.

(4) The TV's OTA HDTV tuner is very sensitive.

(5) This TV only uses around 66 watts.

Cons:

(1) On the product box and on VIZIO M420SV product page it says
"120Hz refresh rate" however the M420SV will not take 120Hz input,
they should tell you this.

(2) The Internet Apps are not very good, a few things put me off from
using them:

HD video on the internet will not play correctly on a 1.5MB connection
with this TV, and none of the Internet Apps on this TV will let you select a
lower quality version of the video to play.

And there is no way to sort or show what videos are HD, however
the "Amazon instant video" App will show "HD" at the top of its HD
video preview images, but lacks a way of sorting between HD and SD.

Many of the Internet Apps do not seem to have been well thought out,
are hard to use, or just not very good.

In the "Amazon instant video" App, they have a "Prime Instant Video" button but all
it shows are "Top Movies" and Top Shows", no sorting and no searching for
Prime Instant Videos.

"iHeartRadio" works well, however the screen stays on when playing
music, the App should turn the screen off, or have a screensaver.

There is no Youtube App.

"Yahoo News App" has no full screen function, no customization of news stories.
