32 in.

The Vizio E320VL is an entry-level TV that lacks features but put up some good numbers on a lot of our tests.

Overall Design

The high-end HDTVs of today are well-designed, metal and glass, bezel-free, and look more like sculpture than electronics. The Vizio M320NV has some minor aesthetic flares, but that's just not enough to cut it any more. The glossy black plastic might allow for a less expensive price tag, but attractive it isn't. We think the M320NV is better looking than average, but it's not gorgeous.

Front

The front of the Vizio M320NV is surrounded by a glossy black bezel. The outside left and right edges are semi-translucent. Under the screen, in the center, is a Vizio logo that lights up when the TV turns on.

Back

The back of the TV is covered in glossy black plastic. There's a cluster of ports in the bottom right corner, some of which are facing down.

Sides

The left side of the TV has a handful of ports and a dial-button, the TV's main control method.

Stand/Mount

The Vizio's stand is an oval shaped piece of glossy black plastic. It doesn't swivel.

Controls

The Vizio M320NV only has one control, which is both a dial and a button, if you can even believe that. You rotate the dial to scroll through various controls and push it to use them. Just pushing the button will power the TV on or off.

Remote Control

The Vizio's remote is fairly basic, but covers all the essential functionality.

In the Box

In the box you'll find the TV, remote, batteries, and manuals. Nothing special or extra here. The TV also doesn't require any setup: the stand comes attached. Just extract your M320NV from its packaging, plug it in, and enjoy.
