@ sdg4vfx, I was tricked into thinking it was backlit instead of edge lit by this review:
They also lied about the speaker watts claim 5W but Vizio specs state 2W & I confirmed with Vizio.
I bought it a couple days ago @ Walmart. It is OK, I guess. Viewing angle is not good. I was thinking of side to side but up & down angles not good, Need to try to raise it up some. Sound in very thin but OK for News. (I improved sound by selecting â€śDynamic & then customize it by changing the 10 kHz from +8 down to only +5) If I need better sound I will look into computer speakers.
I will hook up my old, unused BD player (Panasonic DMP BD80) & calibrate it soon. After I run it ~ 100 hours. â€śbreak inâ€ť
I also saw the LG but, dismissed since wanted 24â€ť. I could actually fit a 28â€ť but Vizio 28â€ť was only 720p. I now wonder if that LG 22â€ť would have been better despite slightly smaller size?
, I saw Insignia but consider it an off brand, perhaps unjustly. I didnâ€™t even want Vizio but, I had seen it around for years. I wanted Panasonic or Samsung or Sharp, etc.
Surprisingly, There is a fraction of a second delay on the audio with this Vizio compared to my 10 year old Panasonic SD LCD TV in the Kitchen. So as I pass the hallway where I can hear both, it sounds like an echo! They are both tuned to the exact same cable channel. Vizio has an audio synch adjustment that I hoped could fix this. It has a -/+ scale 0-5. I tested by moving all the way to +5. This had the effect of further delaying the audio on Vizio so it was ~ 1 full second behind the old Panny. I thought great! All I need do is adjust to -2 or -3 but, unfortunately, there is no â€ś-â€ť adjustment! My choices are the default â€ś0â€ť or +1,+2â€¦..up to +5. I checked the Panasonic to see if it had such an adjustmentâ€¦.no.
