Up for Review: VIZIO M321I-A2 Razor LED Smart HDTV.

The 32-inch TVs happen to be the smallest in VIZIO’s M-Series. The M321I-A2 leaves 3D playback and 240Hz processing, but it still offers you some of the high-end functionalities like Smart TV options, brilliant picture display, nice audio and full digital connectivity. Most importantly, VIZIO has kept the price down to under $350 to ensure that anyone can easily have this solid Smart TV. The attractive design of the panel is also a point to note.


We will review the model in greater detail, but before that here’s a list of all its important features and specifications. Let’s check it out.

VIZIO M321I-A2 Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: Razor LED Smart TV
  • Screen Size: 32 inches
  • Razor LED Backlight
  • Smart Dimming
  • 120Hz Effective Refresh Rate
  • Full HD 1080p Resolution
  • 10M to 1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Backlit Smart Remote
  • 20-watt Audio with DTS StudioSound, DTS TruVolume and DTS TruSurround

One great thing about VIZIO is that it’s always been the budget shoppers’ brand. VIZIO’s non-3D Smart TVs are pretty much affordable. Only the 3D TVs cost a few extra, but they certainly are cheaper than their competitors from other reputable brands. However, the low price does not let the performance sink at all. The M321I-A2 has got a very advanced look for its cost. It includes an ultra-slim profile, a super-narrow glossy bezel around the screen and space-saving slim base. Both the base and the neck are built from metal to provide a classy shining look and solid strength to the panel. The 32-inch Smart TV is programmed with Razor LED Backlighting to produce breath-taking pictures on the LED screen. The Smart Dimming is there to enhance the screen brightness and black levels to a level where black on-screen areas look darker and white areas look much brighter. As a result, on-screen pictures look convincingly lifelike. The TV has a screen resolution of 1080p Full HD, which produces over 2 million pixels on the screen for all kinds of content, and helps you view detailed pictures on the TV. The dynamic contrast ratio is 10 Million to 1, which plays an excellent role to produce extremely realism on the display when your background is either extremely lit or dark. The higher 120Hz frame refresh rate optimizes the motion performance on fast moving content by reducing the blur and judder effects substantially. Result is smooth and seamless fast action streaming.

Coming to the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus, it’s a revamped interface providing a faster and much easier platform to access the online apps services. There are hundreds of useful apps including Netflix, VUDU, HULU Plus, Amazon, MGO, Pandora, Rhapsody, Facebook, Twitter, Flicker and lots more. These apps bring all the best entertainment resources on the web directly to your living room. The Built-in Wi-Fi establishes an instant connection and facilitates the online streaming services. The all-new backlit smart remote has got dedicated buttons for some of the major apps and the TV’s built-in Wi-Fi. It helps you control all the TV functionalities quite conveniently.

The sound is 20 watts and boosted with DTS StudioSound, DTS TruSurround and DTS TruVolume to deliver nice and pleasing audio. Moreover, there are 1 USB and 3 HDMI ports allowing you to connect your compatible USB stick and multimedia devices like digital camera, DVD player and Blu-Ray player to the TV, and view your favorite content on the LED screen. Due to low power consumption, the M321I-A2 is an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant Smart TV.

HDTVUniverse.com gives VIZIO M321I-A2 4/5 stars.
