Vizio VP3222 32-inch Plasma HDTV
Introduction The VP322 reviewed here is a 32-inch design, with a maximum resolution of 1080i, retailing for $649.99 through Vizio directly or Wal-Mart.  The VP322 is an attractive design with a smooth gloss piano bezel and amber illuminated Vizio logo on its face.  All manual controls are located on the side of the display itself, with the inputs and outputs recessed in a large but organized panel ‘round back.  The VP322 features three HDMI inputs, as well as a PC monitor in, one component video in, one composite video in, one RF antenna in and a single S-Video input.  The VP322 has two 10-watt speakers internally, which provide way more volume output then they should, although at high volumes or with action films, they do fall apart like a Fiat in the summertime.  All of the VP322’s video connections are accompanied ...

Vudu Media Server
Introduction With over 120,000,000 Apple iPods sold to date, most people have a pretty solid idea of what a media server is, even if the term media server isn’t an everyday part of the American lexicon yet. Apple brought video to the iPod and YouTube has brought video to the masses, but DVD remains the all-powerful king for movies late in 2008, even with the rise of the high-definition Blu-ray format. While many are willing wait for slow load times on Blu-ray players and funky HDMI connections, others (historically with tons of money) could buy a closed-ended system like Kaleidescape for upwards of $30,000 in order to get a slick, reliable broadcast of SD (yes, I said $30,000 for standard definition) video throughout their homes. Now there are new options on the market that are getting some buzz. Enter Vudu. To be ...

Vizio VX52LF LCD HDTV
The Basics: Vizio has established itself as one of the leading providers of reasonably-priced LCD and plasma HDTVs, and this 52-inch, 1080p model is the largest in the company’s LCD line, replacing the GV52LF. The VX52LF may not have all the high-end features you’ll find on a more expensive panel, but it offers solid performance, ample connections and an attractively simple design. This TV’s healthy back panel sports three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 (but not 1080p/24), plus two component video and one PC input that are also HD-capable. The menu includes the standard assortment of LCD picture adjustments, including several preset picture modes and color temperature settings, plus an adjustable backlight to tailor the image’s overall light output to suit your viewing environment. It also offers advanced white-balance controls, which isn’t a given at this price point. Vizio includes a lot ...

Vizio Gallevia GV47LF LCD HDTV
The Basics: Vizio has established itself as one of the leading providers of reasonably-priced LCD and plasma HDTVs, and the GV47LF is a prime example of why. This 47-inch, 1080p HDTV may not have all the high-end features you’ll find in a more expensive panel, but it offers solid performance, ample connections and an attractively simple design. The GV47LF’s well-endowed back panel sports four HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 (but not 1080p/24), plus two component video and one PC input that are also HD-capable. The menu includes the standard assortment of LCD picture adjustments, including several preset picture modes and color-temperature settings, plus an adjustable backlight to tailor the image’s overall light output to suit your viewing environment. It also offers advanced white-balance controls, which isn’t a given at this price point. Vizio includes a lot of PIP and POP viewing options, ...

Vizio JV50P Jive Plasma HDTV
The Basics: Vizio has established itself as one of the leading providers of reasonably priced LCD and plasma HDTVs. The JV50P is a unique product in the company’s line, as it combines a plasma panel and 5.1-channel audio system to create a more complete home entertainment package for just $1800. The trade-off for that low price is that you don’t get 1080p resolution; this is a 1366 x 768 panel. The JV50P plasma has a healthy connection panel with three HDMI, two component video, and one PC input. The menu includes most of the desirable picture adjustments, such as preset picture modes and color temperature settings. It also includes advanced white-balance controls, which isn’t a given at this price point. There are four aspect ratio options (normal, wide, zoom, panoramic), numerous PIP and POP viewing options, and an image cleaner to ...
