Value Comparison

Based on the fact that both TVs have roughly similar MSRPs, this comparison comes down strictly to performance and connectivity, which the LG provides more of. Still, be aware that the 32LV2500 has a much tinier viewing angle than the Vizio E320VP, so if you're buying a set for a wider room, you may want to stick with the Vizio.

Blacks & Whites

To no surprise, the LG outperforms the Vizio E320VP in black and white performance, recording a lower black level, comparable peak brightness, and a much wider contrast ratio. If you're looking for solid performance here, the LG takes this category.

Color Accuracy

Neither TV impressed in color performance, but there are some strange numbers to compare between these two sets: while the Vizio showed less total color temperature error, and a more accurate color gamut, the LG had better RGB curves. Still, the Vizio is probably the better TV by this comparison alone.

Motion

Both sets were painfully average in handling motion, with the slight edge going to the LG. You really can't go wrong here.

Viewing Effects

The LG doesn't have the same type of screen as the Vizio, so the issues we noted earlier to not apply to the 32LV2500. Still, it brings its own troubles to the table, having an absolutely miniscule viewing angle. Despite our troubles in measuring the Vizio's true viewing angle, we feel confident in saying it has the superior viewing angle.

Connectivity

With 3 HDMI ports and double the analog options of the E320VP, the LG 32LV2500 gives you more options in terms of connectivity. Both sets lack internet capability.
