Vizio E322VL LCD HDTV Review
The Vizio E322VL is a one-off model that seems to be nothing more than a successful experiment on Vizio’s part.
Motion Smoothness (6.0)
The Vizio E322VL managed a pretty good motion performance. The performance was about as smooth as most LCD TVs. Note that this model lacks the motion smoothing features found in some more expensive Vizios like the 3SV series.
Motion Artifacting (6.0)
The Vizio E322VL displayed the typical motion artifacts of an LCD TV. There were obvious instances of color trailing and flickering, which killed some of the fine detail. Smooth color gradations could become blocky when an object was in motion. But it was no more egregious what normal. More on how we test motion performance.
3:2 Pulldown & 24fps
The Vizio E322VL is certainly capable of displaying native 24fps content, as you might see from a Blu-Ray movie. However, the picture could look a little choppy, particularly horizontal camera pans. There's a feature on the TV called Film Mode that is meant to improve performance, and that's definitely true. Leave it in Auto mode, but don't expect perfection. More on how we test 3:2 pulldown and 24fps.
The Vizio E322VL has a native resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080), but most of the content you'll be watching will probably be of a lower resolution. It's up to the TV's internal processing to rescale that picture to fit on the screen. Overall, theVizio E322VL is very good at this task. More on how we test resolution scaling.
When we looked at 480p content, there was a 3% loss of top and bottom and a 2% loss of sides due to overscan.
With 720 content, there were some slight Moires that appeared in areas of high contrast and high frequency.
The 1080i content was nearly identical to the 720p content.
