32 in.

The Vizio E322VL is a one-off model that seems to be nothing more than a successful experiment on Vizio’s part.

Color Temperature

The Vizio E322VL had no real problems with maintaining a consistent color temperature. As you can see from the chart below, the color temperature wavers up and down constantly. However, it almost never ranges outside the limits of imperceptibility, so you probably won't notice. More on how we test color temperature.

RGB Curves

The Vizio E322VL proved to have very good color performance, overall. If you look at the charts below, the curves are extremely smooth. The only problem is the blue channel, which peaks early and loses dinner in the highlights. We noticed this during calibration, but the only way to retrieve detail here would have us lower the Contrast setting very low, which would have had an adverse effect on many other aspects of picture quality. More on how we test RGB curves.

The color strips below are digital recreations of the performances seen in detail above. You can see how the Vizio E322VL compares to three similar TVs, as well as an ideal response curve.
