  1. I recently purchased the new VIZIO M220VA 22-inch LED TV, and so far it seems to be a solid performer. Of course, I feel that it is my obligation to point out that this model is NOT meant to be a high-end set. If you purchase this with such an expectation, you will be disappointed. However, if you are looking for a good, affordable LED LCD TV with great picture quality, you would have a difficult time finding a better bang for your buck than this.

    Let me start by expressing how very annoyed I get when I read reviews that get so caught up in only pointing out superficial flaws and never even touch upon the most important aspects – picture and sound quality. Yes, this TV does have it’s quirks: the remote is a little stiff and can be a little fickle sometimes. The stand is difficult to put on and literally took me a good 15 minutes to figure it out. However, despite these flaws, this television does deliver where it matters.

    Picture quality is quite good, especially for a TV in its price range. Standard definition content looks sub-optimal, but this is due to the nature of how SD video is scaled by HDTVs in general, and nothing to do with this model specifically. High-definition content looks excellent, and I have had good experiences watching 720p/1080p movies from my laptop (through the VGA output). The picture is bright, crisp, and contrast is great. Blacks are rich and solid, without losing the subtle detail in the content. Keep in mind, though, that in order to get the most mileage, you will need to spend some time to calibrate the settings to give you an optimal picture quality. Games look great and there is no ghosting with the TV’s fast 5ms response time.

    The screen has a matte finish, which is great if your environment has lots of lighting, as the matte surface will suffer far less from glare than a glossy screen would. There is a never-ending debate over whether one type of screen surface is better than the other, but I’ll leave that for another day.

    Sound quality on the other hand is nothing to write home about. The speakers are a bit weak, but this is easily solved by using a set of external speakers. I am currently using an old set of computer speakers hooked up via the headphone jack on the TV, and they sound infinitely better than the TV speakers after turning off the “SRS TruSurround” option (some sort of faux-surround sound simulator).

    The VIZIO has a decent number of inputs in the back, with 1x Composite, 1x Component, 2x HDMI, 1x VGA w/ Audio, 1x USB (for photos), and an optical input for a home theater sound system. It is worth noting that HDMI and component inputs are located directly on the back of the model (composite inputs are on the side), so if you are planning on wall-mounting it, it may be difficult to plug in the necessary connections if you don’t leave enough room between the wall and the TV.

    Also, it is worth noting that the previous reviewer stated that there is no way to remove unwanted channels individually. This is FALSE. Under the “Master Channels” menu, you have the options to “Mark All”, and “Unmark All” channels. Hitting right on the controller allows you to move up and down on the list to select individual channels to add/remove.

    All in all, this is a good TV. It is certainly not perfect, and if you have more money to spend I would encourage you to shoot for a higher-end model. But for what it’s worth, the VIZIO M220VA is a tough beast to beat in its division.

    First of all, John Huang must have gotten his models confused. This unit does not have a detachable base- it is designed to sit on a counter or shelf and the base has two front firing speakers. Perfect for bedroom or kitchen countertop; fits very nicely below wall mounted kitchen cabinets.

    The picture quality is superb!! Sharp as a tack and brilliant color, with very rich blacks. Don’t know if it’s the LED lighting that makes it so good….but it is!

    Sound: Far better than many this size which put the speakers on the back or facing down. Very adequate volume, but with 2″ speakers you ain’t getting audiophile quality.

    This is an excellent unit and the low price makes it a superb value.

    I must say that I am very pleased with this TV. It is a perfect fit for a bedroom. I beg to differ with some of the comments about the sound quality. The speakers are in front of the unit, not in the back as with many HDTV’s. Yes the sound is a bit tinny, but it does not need to be cranked up to deliver sufficient sound for a 12×12 room. The picture quality is suberb for a smaller screen. The HD 1080p is indeed full HDTV and I am impressed with the LED backlighting. It is also a solid energy saver as it is rated at a 4.0 for energy efficiency. Yes, the remote could be improved, but I have to use a cable remote for my box so that is a non-issue for me. All in all I would definitely recommend this TV for the price. I am very satisfied with its performance thus far.

    This is an excellent TV in every respect. The remote control is the easiest remote to use that I have ever experienced. With inputs for almost every connection, the remote has a button for the respective connection. There are no cryptic keys that have to be pressed 10 times to provide the right connection. The TV itself is very light. The performance: picture quality and sound is equal or better than any other LCD that I have had, particularly units under 30″. One hint, several posters have mentioned the difficulty in mounting the base. The manual says press in gently, if you do this the base will not engage the tv, it needs a relative sharp hit down to engage. Buy this TV you will not be disappointed.

    This TV is stunning!!! For under $300, you will not find any better! The sound is weak, but there is a cheap and easy fix. Buy some computer speakers and plug them into the headphone jack on the side of the unit. I use a 3 piece Logitech set w/ a sub that sounds great! They cost about $50. I use this TV to play xbox on when the main TV is in use. We have a 40′ Sony w/ 120mhz refresh rate (paid $1800 for!!!) and the Vizio looks just as good! I promise you will not be disappointed with this TV!!!!
