Released August, 2006
The Pros:A lot of value for not much $$$. Many different inputs (2 HDMI, 2 Component, VGA). Good black level reproduction for an LCD.
The Cons:Visible edge enhancement that can't be bypassed. No native support for 1080p resolution.
Vizio develops a line of pretty decent HDTVs at arguably the best prices on the market. The Vizio L42 is a 42" LCD HDTV that comes pretty loaded with inputs and features, good image quality, and is available for $1099 (compare to Sony's 40" Bravia LCD that goes for $2799).

The L42 has 2 HDMI, 2 component, 1 VGA, as well as a bank of standard SD I/O. It also comes with a built-in ATSC (HD) tuner so you can watch all of those over the air HD channels available in your area. While this LCD may not be the top of the heap for quality, reviews demonstrate that it is at least adequate, and at that price point, this TV is difficult to beat.
