The New iPhone 7 – What We All Want To See
In this column, I will review the Vizio 42 inch M-series LED TV.
This is the review of the Vizio 42 inch M-series LED TV model numbers and description as well as a link to go purchase it on Amazon.
Product: VIZIO E420i-B0 42-Inch 1080p LED Smart TV
Cheapest Place to buy: Amazon
Size: 42 inches
My Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Item Model Number: E420i-B0
Speaker Type: Built-in
So this is a very cool TV, it’s $500 and you can even find it cheaper and it poses an extremely good value for what you get.
You get a metal frame construction, you get a glossy screen and the display itself is LED with 14 LED zones that are active and they can disable themselves and make the screen have such good contrasts.
It’s maybe difficult for you to picture it, you have to see it in person, but the black parts of the screen are so dark that if you turn off the lights in your room and then you go ahead and switch over to a screen that is mostly black, your room will be pitch black.
There is no light coming out of the LEDs in the area of the screen that is black, and it gives the deepest contrast.
In terms of the overall image quality, I really think it is a winner. If you’re someone who is in a place where you’re gonna have a lot of lights, for example, sunlight, you’re most likely not going to enjoy the screen.
It’s very glossy, the screen is a very glassy type of gloss it doesn’t have a weird formation to it, it’s very flat.
The monitor, in general, is very premium, it’s a very premium set- up and honestly for five hundred dollars I don’t think you can do much better.
As for the Vizio software for the apps, whenever you hit the button on your remote that opens up the apps that you have on your hot bar, you will be able to quickly scroll through and switch over to something like Spotify.
Certain applications allow you to open them up while you are watching television, Spotify not so much.
The quality of the applications for example; Spotify is very good, it’s like using it on a desktop it works extremely well and overall is just a great set up that they have.
You can also open up applications on the left side of your screen rather than having to open them up to the full screen.
There is a great selection of applications, you will find eBay, Amazon, and a whole array of others that you would not normally see on a TV.
There are currently 120 apps pre-installed and I am sure many more will be added in the future.
Overall I find the interface for navigating around your apps and things like that to be a little slow at times, but it is very good compared to some other TVs on the market.
The speakers sound great, very rich, very good dynamic range. Vizio has done a very good job at creating a speaker that has good bass, treble and all around this has a good range.
You really get a good crisp range of sound. When you are listening to music from the TV, it doesn’t sound flat at all, it has a good dynamic range of sounds.
Overall there is only one big flaw I have about this TV and its actually a minor flaw; the remote.
It looks nice, it’s not that bad, it has a great gloss inside of the buttons, I really like the design of it.
The good layout looks premium, it’s plastic of course, but it is still pretty good and on the back, you have a keyboard.
The keyboard is extremely good, it feels great, the layout is great. The only problem I think with this is that there is a backlight on the keyboard.
The backlight on the keyboard is bright, looks good at night just like it should and it works great.
Say you are in the dark using the keyboard and all of a sudden you say to yourself “I need to check my menu real quick for the TV” you flip it over and you can’t find your menu.
There is no backlight on the front of the remote which I find to be a very weird decision.
I do not know what was the thought behind this design., but there should have been a light at the front of the remote for easy access to the keys.
Luckily you can program your cable box remote to work with the TV.
So with all that being said, I hoped this helped you to make a decision on what television you are going to buy.
I think this is a great value for under $500 and actually, if you have more than $500 in your budget there are actually higher up models that have very similar features/qualities to this television.
You can buy a 60 inch or something around 60 inches with the same exact qualities; the aluminum structure on the outside, the all-around incredible contrast ratio, and display quality.
I think it is a great TV. If you are interested in checking it out just click below.

Looking to make a decision on purchasing your new iPhone? Today I want to talk to you about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, these are two new products we have never seen before in the terms of size, I mean 4.7 and 5.5 inches, that’s a big step up from the original iPhone 3.5 inch display and of course there is a reason for it, Apple wants to share market share with android, Bring users over so it’s totally understandable.
This is the review of the iPhone 6 plus, a big phone, the biggest iPhone ever released, and apple is betting that you are going to like the extra size. With that being said, I am going to take a look at the design of this new iPhone 6 plus. Now when you first pick it up, if you have never owned or used a phone like a samsung galaxy note or the LG g3, you may be shocked by the size and a lot of my friends were when I did let them borrow my iPhone, they were like kinda just turned off by it because it was so huge as they were using the iPhone 5s and below, but for me I have been using big phones over the past few years so for me it was not such big a deal to me plus its not too big; it is big but it is not too big.
Apple has tried to combat this extra size of this new iPhone 6 plus by making everything feel like one single piece and really taking the inner body to the next step, and for example if you were to put your finger in the middle of the display and just move it to all the way to the back of the phone you will find that your fingers are not going to come across any type of separation between the glass and the aluminum body. Everything just feels like it is just melted together and just makes for a very nice sensation when you are holding the phone in your hands but it doesn’t necessarily make the phone feel better to hold than other big phones on the market, and that is partly because it doesn’t have any texture, anything that your hands can really grip onto because everything is so smooth and kinda slippery but it does look really good and it does fit in your pocket a little bit better but I think that apple could benefit from having some texture back like the Samsung Galaxy note or just something on the hedges that you could really just hold onto.
For me personally, I have big hands so I don’t feel like I am going to drop it that much 🙂 but if you do have smaller hands or you are just concerned about it, the best bet would be for you to just go into a store and actually get your hands on the phone itself. Some other changes about the design is that the power button has been moved from the top to the right hand side of the phone and right below that you will find the sim card slot, on the left hand side you will find the mute switch and also the volume buttons which have been made larger to make it a little bit easier to press on this bigger phone, and then on the bottom you will find your lightning port, the headphone jack and also the speaker. Now the speaker has not been placed on the front like other popular phones like the HTC 1 and the new Moto X, but the speaker does sound louder, it does sound better than last generations but I do find myself often covering it up with my finger when I am playing games or watching a video, so apple could probably in the future make it a lot better by putting the speakers on the front.
Now another design characteristic of the iPhone 6 plus is that the camera is actually poking out of the back of the phone, so it is not flushed with the aluminum body, so this will be a legitimate concern if you ever happen to drop your phone that camera will actually be the first thing that could possibly come in contact with the ground before the rest of the phone does and that could lead to a breaking a little bit easier.
Well now on to the main reason why this new phone is bigger, its because it does have a 5.5 inch 1480p display and is rocking 401 PPI (Pixel per inch) so when you are gaming or watching a movie its going to be more enjoyable on this huge display and it really makes me feel like I don’t need to take my iPad mini a lot of places because I am going to be watching a movie and it is a big enough screen that I will be totally satisfied to sit there for a couple of hours and watch some type of video content on it.
Now if the screen size is still a little too daunting for you, apple has added a software feature that is called reachability, now reachability allows you to just simply just double tap the home button and it will bring whatever thats on your display down to the bottom of the screen so if you are on the home screen you will be bringing down the icons on the top to the bottom or if you are in settings it will bring the window down and you could still scroll through and pick whatever settings that you are looking for, also if you are in safari it makes it a little bit easier for you to tap those bookmarks that may be at the top.
Now the display wouldn’t be anything if it didn’t have the hardware that runs some of the latest games and software that you could take advantage of , so apple has added the 64bit AA processor alongside the new MA co processor to it, but it still only has 1 GB of ram.
So some more good things with the internals is that it does have voiceover LT so if you now have a carrier now that does not allow you to talk and also use data, this will fix all of that, and also it does have wifi calling, so if you are in a situation where you do not have a good cellular reception but you are able to connect to a wifi network, you can make or receive a call and once you walk outside and get to a better reception area you will automatically switch to your cellular network which is going to be a plus for people in that type of situation.
