    I knew someone who bought a Vizio 40-42" flatscreen for around $600. Don't know where but that's what they got. Is that a really good deal? If I were to see it at a Bestbuy, Walmart or Target should I grab it right away? I am looking to go digital finally. Thanks.

    Vizio is an inexpensive TV. That being said, you get what you pay for.

    If you don't have anything to compare it with, you can remain blissfully ignorant.

    If you set it next to a "good" TV, you can see the difference.

    I have a Sony 32XBR4, it went out for service and I got a Vizio for a loaner set.

    After my set was returned I had a short period of time when both TVs were running at the same time.

    Trust me, you can tell the difference.

    Vizio seem to make fairly good tvs, but you may want to spend an extra $200.00-300.00 and look into a samsung or sharp.
    Bestbuy has some really good deals on those two brands right now.
    But hey if your happy with the picture on the vizio, I see no reason not to pick one up.

    Panasonic plasmas are always a good deal. The most dependable TVs on the market and wonderful picture quality without any fast motion problems.

    120Hz LCD's are a rather futile attempt to compensate for their inherent motion lag. If you like your movies looking like a video taped game show, go for it.
