Vizio M322I-B1 Review – 32-inch LED HDTV

Originally Reviewed on June 20th, 2014

Up for Review: Vizio M322I-B1 LED HDTV.

The smallest model of the M-series this year, the Vizio M322I-B1 comes under a sweet price tag of just $330 and is a model targeted towards value oriented customers. The current version is a huge upgrade to the similar model launched last year. Available at a considerably low price, Vizio doesn’t really sacrifice upon quality. While users will not have a 3D compatibility, it is viewed as a beneficial upgrade (or downgrade as some would say). 3D is best viewed in big screen theatres and home entertainment with extra glasses gets bulky and uncomfortable. This does reduce the price of the model to a great extent. However, we do have a full array LED backlighting scheme which is also supposed to be the backbone for this model. The TV delivers an effective contrast detail and Vizio has consequently made good use of a huge color gamut. This is something that most 32 inch products miss. The picture quality of the M322I-B1 can be effectively compared to products from leading manufacturers like Sony and Samsung. Keeping in mind the demands of the modern day user, Vizio has effectively integrated its Vizio Internet Apps platform making it an all round entertainment gadget. There are few thing wrong with the M322I-B1 and considering a budget under $330, there are almost zero alternatives to this product.

Vizio M322I-B1 Features and Specifications:

  • Display Screen Type: LED
  • Panel Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Full Array LED Backlighting
  • 5 Active LED Zones
  • 120 Hz Effective Refresh Rate
  • Clear Action 360
  • 5,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
  • DTS StudioSound™ / DTS TruVolume™
  • HDMI Ports Quantity: 3
  • Energy Star® 6.0 Complaint

The Vizio M322I-B1 is quite on picture effects and quality. The highlight of this model is the full array LED backlighting delivering better contrasts, deeper black levels, higher color details and faster frame response. This TV can be kept anywhere in the household and regardless of the environmental brightness; the M322I-B1 will deliver a bright output. The backlighting scheme ensures there is little loss in color levels and depth. 5 Active LED zones is perfect for a 32 inch screen and this is well supported by other picture features like Clear Action 360, a dynamic contrast ratio of 5 million to one, 16.7 million color pixels and an effective 120 Hz refresh rate. There is minimal amount of judder you can expect of the M322I-B1 and even with live broadcast the experience is smooth and sensible. Vizio also offers several picture modes and settings according to the type of broadcast you are watching. Alternative, there is an impressive gaming mode that will keep the younger members hooked onto the TV.

Another beneficial addition to the M322I-B1 is the Vizio Internet Apps platform. Within a budget of $350, there are very few products in the market that provide a smart platform and Vizio M322I-B1 is one of them. Further, 3 HDMI ports ensure that the TV can be effectively turned into a complete home theatre experience. gives Vizio M322I-B1 4/5 stars.
