Vizio M320NV LCD HDTV Review
The Vizio E320VL is an entry-level TV that lacks features but put up some good numbers on a lot of our tests.
The Vizio M320NV had a pretty even color temperature. It leaned towards the cool side, but not by an amount that was particularly perceptible. You shouldn't have any problems here. More on how we test color temperature.
The M320NV had a decent RGB response, but the colors all peak before they should. In the graph below, you'll see three smooth curves up until the right side of the graph, at which point they level out. This means the TV displays the same shade of red, green, and blue despite being instructed to show increasingly brighter shades. The result is a loss of detail in bright areas. This being said, the peaking isn't too bad: it occurs very close to the highest intensity, meaning only a small amount of detail will be lost.
Aside from the peaking, the M320NV put up a great performance here. More on how we test RGB curves.
Below you'll find the red, green, and blue responses from the above chart plotted as gradient bars. We've also including the RGB responses of several competing models. Look for how aggressively the gradient blacks out, or for any vertical stripes. You want a nice, even progression that retains as much of the spectrum as possible; vertical stripes indicate a loss of detail.
