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.
The Vizio E322VL is a bit ugly, like most Vizios: extremely boxy with lots of black plastic. Some TVs try to hide their bulk. This one almost accentuates it.
The front of the Vizio E322VL has a light-up Vizio logo in the front, as well as the IR receptor for the remote control.
The back of the Vizio E322VL houses most of the ports, grouped together on one side for easier access. The AC cord can be removed completely. It plugs in on the other side.
The Vizio E322VL is not particularly thin, thanks to the older CCFL backlighting technology. Newer LED backlighting allows TVs to be thinner, like the Sony KDL-32EX700. The fat sides of the Vizio allow room for onboard controls and ports, however.
The Vizio E322VL's stand mounts with a single screw – not a real confidence builder. Fortunately, the TV panel is very lightweight, so we're not too worried. The construction of the base does not allow the TV panel to pivot, which sadly limits it maneuverability.
The remote control is very basic and gets the job done. Unfortunately, it's not programmable with other AV devices.
The onboard controls on the Vizio E322VL are the same that you'd find on nearly any TV. Each button is a thin, hard plastic strip that offers a confirming click when you hit it.
In the Box
The Vizio E322VL ships with the base, AC cable, remote control batteries, instruction manual, and other documentation. Because the TV panel is so lightweight, it's quite easy to assemble.
