review for the Vizio E320VP 32" 1080i HD LED LCD Television
29 January 2013
Summary: the product was purchased as reconditioned because of price then I saw new ones about the same price. Even though I purchased it in November 2012 I didn't get around to installing on Jan 21st. When turned on I found that the sound was not very good and adjusting the sound options could not improve the sound so I purchased a set of small box speakers which did a good job, but the volume keeps going up and down. The picture quality is great.
Excerpt: This is the most used television in our house. The television is easy to control (I am not an electronics geek at all, so I needed something simple). We got it on sale for $239 Black Friday, so it is a wonderful value for the amount of money we spent. The size may be small, but I can see it clearly from across the house while i'm doing dishes.
Excerpt: i found this tv at a local department store for just over $400. it features 3 hdmi ports, 3 componant ports as well as a port for vga to connect laptop and tv acts as a projector, making this a great tv to use as a large monitor for those with small screen laptops! add wireless mouse and keypad and you can surf without even opening your laptop! as for the picture quality i was very impressed by the clarity and it even is clear when the picture is moving very fast.
Excerpt: We wanted to upgrade from our ancient 19" TV and move into the digital age so after a ton of research we chose the Vizio E320VA 32 in. HDTV LCD TV. We purchased it for just under $300 at Costco so we could get the extra year of warranty. The picture is wonderful and the sound quality is great. It was very easy to set up and it takes up so much less space then the older kind of TV. It has six different ways to connect to your components.
Summary: I purchased the manufacturer refurbished Vizio. When I received the item in the mail it was missing the styorfoam packing (bubble warp instead) and the manual. I downloaded the manual off the internet. Though it seemed like it's seen some use it was still working pretty well. But then after a couple of weeks of use I noticed the remote was very slow to respond to commands (on, off, volume and channel).
Don't be a brand-name snob - this set merits consideration!

Summary: Picture quality is absolutely outstanding and equal to or better than our Toshiba and Samsung sets. The sound quality is, however, not great, but we did not expect it to be after reading several reviews for this product. By all means, use external speakers. It is truly amazing how thin and light-weight this unit is -looks wonderfulin any location and certainly could be hung on a wall. We bought this set for use in a smallish living room and it is a perfect size for that.
Summary: We are not television experts by any means, but this television really delivers a nice clear picture. The speakers are weak, but we have added external speakers and they help. In the future we are looking at getting a sound bar for it. We have a small home so it works fine for us.
