Motion Performance

The E320VP fielded an average performance as far as motion is concerned. Still, what this means for users of the smaller Vizio is that they can expect to see images in motion skew a bit, as well as create a bunch of distracting artifacting and stair-stepping in moving objects. Overall, the E320VP could have done a lot worse, but don't expect the greatest handling of motion either. More on how we test motion performance.

3:2 Pulldown & 24fps

The Vizio E320VP has a native 3:2 pulldown processing feature that handles film-based content fairly well, smoothing and easing motion transitions as well as can be expected, so the E320VP got decent marks here. More on how we test 3:2 pulldown and 24fps.

Resolution Scaling

Given that this TV has a native resolution of 720p, it wasn't meant to handle larger resolutions. Still, we put the E320VP through its paces, and here is what we found: More on how we test resolution scaling.

480p

The E320VP struggled a bit with 480p content, losing 3% of its screen area vertically and 2% horizontally. Beyond this, the TV performed very well in every other resolution test while displaying 480p content.

1080i

While 1080i/p content is not supported natively by the E320VP, it is still possible to display these formats with the TV, just not very well. While displaying 1080i content, the Vizio didn't lose any screen area to overscan, but text was rendered near-illegible regardless of font size.

1080p

Much like the performance in 1080i, we found similar results displaying 1080p content. The E320VP simply could not produce legible text in this resolution.
