I'm helping my sister get a new 42" TV. She wants to spend as little as possible, and no more than $450, so I'm trying to prioritize features for her. She'd prefer to buy from Costco if possible.
Of the Costco sets, I'm steering her toward this one:
Vizio 42" E422VLE
Is that a good choice, or can I do better for $400? Ideally, we'd want both a 120Hz refresh rate and LED backlighting, but in this price range, most sets seem to only have one or the other. My TV is a plasma, so I don't have much experience with either feature. If I have to choose one, I want the higher refresh rate, right?
Any other sets I should be looking at for $400? She has a few requirements:
- 40-42" screen size.
- LCD/LED (no plasma)
- 2 or more HDMI inputs
- Best possible picture quality for the price.
Features she doesn't want/doesn't want to pay extra for:
- Speaker quality
