Front


The front of the Vizio VL420M is dominated by the dark brown bezel, which is almost black. The bezel has angular edges, with a speaker built into it below the display.

  • Although it's hard to tell in this photo the bezel of the Vizio VL420M is dark brown. *

Back


We weren't able to take a photo of the back of the Vizio VL420M, but it's relatively plain, with ports located on the right side when viewing the back.

Sides


There is nothing on the right side of the Vizio VL420M. On the left side you'll find both the on-tv controls and an arrangement of ports.

Stand/Mount

 


The Vizio VL420M's stand is a simple non-rotating affair.

Aesthetics


Vizio is heavily promoting the aesthetic features of their M-series televisions. The VL420M is finished in dark brown, almost black, with nothing to offset the color. Although it is interesting it did not impress us overly. This is obviously an area where personal opinion is a major factor.
