They feature a stylish, modern aesthetic with full edge-to-edge cover glass, and can be tilted up to 25 degrees

Illuminated Touch Controls with Proximity Sensor
The VM190XVT features proximity sensitive touch controls that illuminate when your hand draws near, and fade away once you're done, adding further to the unit's sleek and buttonless design.

Ambient Lighting
Energy efficient sensors auto-adjust brightness for the perfect picture regardless of room conditions.

Green Technologies
VIZIO's Eco HD models exceed the current Energy Star guidelines by 56% below Energy Star 3.0, which saves you money on your utility bills while limiting the impact on our planet.

Thought was put into construction as well--the display's LED backlights do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance used in other backlights.

I agree with the other reviews, but would add a warning about the TV tuner.

On the plus side, the 720p and 1080i HD picture quality is amazing, very bright and sharp with good contrast. The sound is perhaps the best I've ever heard from a low end TV, with more volume than I could ever use. I haven't had a chance to try the digital photo frame feature or the pause live TV feature, but they are both nice to have if they work as advertised. The remote control allows you to access all features.

However, I will be returning the set because of problems with the TV tuner. As I read on another web site, the tuner is annoyingly slow when changing channels. Each time you use channel up or channel down the screen goes blue for about 2 seconds, and sometimes 3 before the new channel is displayed. If you jump to a channel by entering the number from the remote's keypad you will stare at the blue screen for 4 to 5 seconds.

If slow channel changes were the only problem I would just learn to live with it due to the amazing HD picture and sound. Unfortunately there are two other tuner problems, one of which is a too much for me.

First, there is a minor issue where if you punch in a non-existent channel number by accident the input buffer is not cleared until some period of time well after the unit has gone back to displaying the current channel number. I.e., you punch in a wrong number, the unit eventually reverts to displaying the current number, but then when you try to enter a correct number again the digits from the previous attempt are still in the input buffer and they get added to the new number you are trying to enter. You end up having to just sit and wait for some period of time (10 - 20 seconds) before you can enter a new channel number.

I originally gave this TV a Five star rating because of the picture but since then I have had to reconsider.

As I said in my original review I returned this TV because the screen was too small and bought the 23" model instead. They are virtually the same with the same owner's manual and the problems are the same as well. The following is the experience I had with the 23" model:

The sound is terrible and would occasionally get gargled or go out completely. I would have to turn it off and back on the get the sound back to its terrible norm. I returned it to Vizio for replacement and the replacement was just as bad.

I decided to live with it and hooked up a boom box through the headset jack, (It has no analogue audio out), and the sound was OK but the garbling and loss problem still existed.

After about eight months the sound went out completely so I called to get it repaired or replaced under warrantee. I will not write a book on the problems I had with Vizio warrantee service but rest assured it was a real pain. After better than three weeks I finally got a replacement. It was not my repaired one so I expect it was refurbished because the clear wrap was not on the screen and other parts.

I am using it now and the sound is still terrible! So far it appears the garbling and loss problems are gone, but time will only tell.

Whatever the case this TV has a great picture once you adjust the settings, but the sound is the worst I have ever heard. I have a 19" Sanyo that has much better sound and the picture was great right out of the box.

If I had it to do over I would have bought the Samsung XL-2370-1 but it was not out until after I bought this one. It is about the same price and it couldn't be worse if it tried!

1. Vizio on screen controls lower left, keep popping up, stay 15-30 seconds on
screen, then pop off screen for 1-5 seconds, then just keeps repeating.
This activity is inconsistant, seems to be triggered when using exit
button. Also, the exit button does not clear this control but it eventual
stops, only to return when turning TV back on.
2. all channels above 100 have extensions, ie 101-2311, 102-49,102-5011 etc.
does not recognize the cable designations and cannot have name assigned to

3. 3 second channel change exccesive
4. no ability to create favorites menu for quick access to channel
5. cannot enter channels above 99 on remote
6. this is first remote i've used that does not have a designated "menu" button.
Using "OK" to access menus is annoying and confusing. put Menu and Exit
buttons just under the OK cross, better for true one hand operation
7. I know the TV is a Vizio, i don't need the Vizio LOGO for 5 seconds at turn
While the HD picture is perfect, having great video on a kitchen TV just
isn't worth the irritation factor This is a return, unless Vizio has a
firmware upgrade that is easily installed and that solves these problems

I bought this back in Feb 10 so we would have something to entertain the kids til our stuff got here when we moved. This is now used in our spare bedroom as a TV/ Computer monitor. Wasn't sure if it would be a good deal or not with all the bad reviews BUT when you actually read most of the complaints people need to realize what they have. A 19" LED TV for under $200. I will say it again a 19" LED TV for under $200.

Here are my views on everyone's gripes
1. Menu keeps popping up. Yes mine does this. They have the sensor to close the the screen so when you get bright pictures or the sun hits it it comes up annoying yes a little but it was $200.

2. Sound quality bad. I don't know how most people are getting their channels but i have mine going straight from cable outlet. Sound is GREAT i rarely have it above 2 even my digital channels sound good.

3. Slow channel changes. I don't know what type of TV's everyone has but i have a 40" Sony and a 46" Samsung both are LCD's bought within the last 2 1/2 years. Both setup through cable box with HDMI cable and BOTH take a couple seconds to change channels. I Have a CRT that you can roll right through the channels but when i am watching on any other TV i do what they say Adapt and over come. Just a reminder in case you have forgotten $200 TV.

I have tried the DVR function which is pretty neat for a $200 TV Without a DVR cable box/ satellite box. It is a little choppy every couple seconds but i cannot complain BECAUSE I PAID $200. I understand $200 is $200. I am not rich by any means but i do know that you get what you pay for. You cannot expect a $200 tv to work like a $1000 tv. This thing is picking up all the digital channels as well as my basic cable channels.
