- Great picture - annoying screen control Review by BruceH
We have had this television for about a year and a half. It has a great selection of inputs and even allows you to stream data to a USB thumb drive or hard drive to pause live television without the use of a PVR (kind of works like a PVR). If you want to wall mount it, the curved base stand comes off but the base pivot mount is permanently fastened to the television. It does not look bad being mounted so you do not have to worry.
The picture is great quality. Sometimes you have to play with the screen settings to fill the screen with the image depending on the format of the source material you are watching.
The sound is tinny out of the box but you can adjust it with the built-in EQ to make it useable.
The one problem (and only problem that I have come across) is the on-screen pop-up menu display that pops-up when you place your hand near the built-in proximity sensor. Apparently this thing can sense you 15 feet away as it continuously pops-up over top the program you are watching. Very annoying. One other person said this only happens when you use the HDMI input. With component input, the pop-up menu stays off until you wave your hand in front of the television.
Lots of settings to tweak the picture. Great TV for the bedroom or kitchen. Just don't use an HDMI source, only component or less.

- like TV, but have menu problem Review by bobk
TV is great. Extremely great for price.
We've had it since Nov. 2010.
A couple of problems though:
1) Menu on screen pops up on its own. Seems to happen after TV has warmed up a bit. Menu pops up on lower left of screen, covering a few inches. Stays up for maybe 30 seconds, then drops back down. Sometimes it happens enough to be annoying.
2) Remote buttons sometimes require repeated presses to get response.
Again, overall TV is great. Problems are minor.

- we will see Review by FB
Bought two of these tv's December 2009. Noticed after watching the tv's for about an hour the sound woud go into an echoed garbled sound. Turn the tv off and then back on it was fine. Called support a month or two later and they said I needed to buy a external Fat32 drive and down load some software because it sounded like a power influx issue or something like that. Things happend and I now just got around to getting an external drive. Downloading firmware and hope that fixes the problem. Nothing but good things to say about the company, I also bought a 55" LCD couple years ago and that is why I bought these two. Great customer service, I just wish they would have sent me a preloaded external drive early on to fix there problem.

- Fills All My Needs Review by Kevin
I purchased this television to fill two roles in my home office; a secondary monitor for my dockable work laptop and as a small television for watching network television, local news, etc. I've recently connected it to my desktop in addition to my laptop, with each one using an HDMI port fed from the DVI ports on my notebook dock and desktop video card.
VM230 makes a great monitor, sporting full-HD 1080 resolution. The color is very crisp and clear. Whether I'm using it for web-browsing, watching videos, running music visualizations, and running work related applications, the images are sharp and rich. I can easily switch between using it as an extra monitor for my laptop or desktop by pushing the HDMI button on the remote to have it toggle.
Television viewing is great as well. I mostly watch the news and a few local HD networks. I don't use a cable box or converter, just the RF feed right into the TV. The image is responsive and very clear, with little to no ghosting. Shows are very detailed and very rich.
The only cons of the television are the sound, which many people have complained about. Tweak some of the settings, including turning off SRS and it will be great. This TV isn't designed to reproduce home theater quality sound, especially for a 23" screen size. For where this TV is ideal (bedroom, office, kitchen), the sound is adequate and does well. The other complaint is the slow channel changes.
It would be nice if this TV would automatically shut-off when there is no signal. I've shut a computer down as I've walked out of the house and come back to find the TV still on, wasting energy.
I'm upgrading the firmware as I type this, and am curious to see how it improves the TV.
Overall, I'm very happy with the TV and would recommend it to people considering buying it.

- Great HD at the price and style Review by BP
Love the Razor then and stays cool through out the day. Better picture quality than a 720P. This is a replacement for a 12 yr old Panasonic 25in TV. Better picture than any other TV with any brand name the same size or bigger 720P and 1080P.

- Buying another one. Review by Bob
I use this tv at our breakfast bar. It is connected to a high def cable box and to the hdmi output of a small desktop computer. Does a fantastic job as a TV and as a Monitor. Thin design, great styling, great picture, and considering its thin profile, the sound is ok. Not Home Theater quality, but who would expect that in a set this thin. My only complaint, is that the menu screen pops up on its own. Have a feeling it may be caused by the computers wireless keyboard and mouse. Am now looking at a 26 inch one to do the same thing, but in the computer room.

- Very Good TV Review by KeithK
I ordered this TV from WalMart online and received it about a week ago. I plugged it into my DirecTV box and I must admit, the overall picture & sound quality of both HD and non HD channels is very good.
It's a very slim TV, so it will fit nicely on a shelf or the dresser in your room.
The remote control is small and has a nice quality feel to it (I hate remotes with thousands of buttons. This remote is NOT one of those).
The only additional thing that I decided to do was purchase a VESA-Compliant monitor stand for it, which allows me to rotate the TV easier and raise it up or down for viewing comfort while in bed. The stand provided only allows you to swivel the TV's angle up or down.
The stand I bought was (it works well with this TV):
It's a good TV, folks.

- Beautiful TV Review by Jason
I bought this tv because my 25 year old sony finally kicked the bucket. My first impression of this tv is that it is gorgeous. I absolutely love everything about it. It has a lot of inputs and the picture quality is amazing. The sound was surprisingly very good. What I love most about this tv is that it has a glossy screen which makes the picture quality 100 times better than a matte screen. The packing is also very nice and it comes with an exceptional full color manual. If you were wondering about buying this TV just go out and buy it and you will not be disappointed. Plus vizio is an American owned company so you will be buying a home grown product and not some imported crap. I hope in the future Vizio will make more glossy screen tvs like this one because I absolutely love it.

- Fantastic TV Review by DLM
I've had this T.V. for a while now and I thought I'd give everyone my impressions of it...
About a couple of months or so ago, I was looking to replace my Insignia hand me down from my sis. It had terrible quality. A limited VGA resolution, no HDMI inputs- it sucked really bad but it did the job at that time. Being a tech junkie, I had been hearing about LED TVs for a while so I started looking up new TVs and I came across this one. Went to my local Sam's Club and bought it.
I really love this TV and it was quite the bargain at a little over $300. Games on my XBOX 360 are vivid (via generic HDMI cable) and there's a better variation in colors and detail compared to my old TV and even name brands. With this you see things you would have never seen on a standard set. This is hands down the best TV that I've ever played my games on. Nuff said...
As far as cable and everything, it performs just as well. If you don't have HD programming and your primary use would be for watching TV, I wouldn't recommend this TV or any HDTV for that matter. Standard def programming on ANY HDTV is blurry, pixelated and all around the worst picture you could get ever. If you do have HD programming, just another reason to buy this thing.
In conclusion, BUY IT!!! It is extremely cheap being an LED TV and 23". You will never find a bargain like this from Samsung, LG or Sony. This TV does just as good as those brands if not better. My only complaint is the remote. You have to point it directly at the TV for it to pick up the signal. Other than that, it's the best investment I've ever made. When you buy this you will not be disappointed. I promise you that.

We just bought this TV a had it mounted in our travel trailer. We absolutely love it. Our trailer is a 2001 so we had a 13 inch TV/VCR combo sitting on the space next tot he counter. Now we mounted this above and it picks up the digital channels and no more converter box. The clarity and color are great. Would recommend

- Nothing better. Review by Exigent
After researching and trying to find a TV specifically for my XBOX, I came across this one. Luckily, we had one up at my local WalMart for me to look at and compare against the other TVs in mind.
When I unboxed the TV and put the stand together, it's hard to believe that it's only twenty-three inches, because it seems so much larger than that, it has the appearance of at least a 26/27" LCD.
If you're thinking of purchasing this TV, do NOT hesitate, as it is a wise investment. If you're purchasing it for a gaming tv, you will not find a TV that is better. I guarantee it, if you're purchasing it for just the regular use to watch tv, If you're connecting to a cable box, use component cables or HDMI, if you use a regular coaxe cable you might see some slight grainy issues. So, make sure you use component or HDMI when hooking it up to a cable box.
As far as gaming goes (if anyone is looking at this TV for that sole purpose) the picture quality is PHENOMENAL. I went from a 27" CRT standard definition, to this Vizio. And I nearly drooled at how much of a difference it truly makes, I'm running 1080p via HDMI and my games on my 360 are breathtaking. There's so much more detail in games like Call of Duty that I didn't even know existed, from seeing every detail of a prestige emblem, to camo colors, to names being so clear and landscapes coming to life it seems.
For the pro's and cons, completely unbiased.
A( Amazing picture quality (A LOT of options for adjusting to your preferences)
B( The size is amazing. It's very slim, compact, yet still a large screen.
C( The design is flawless. Very glossy, extremely durable.
D( Options. Options are endless, whether you want to wall mount, or use it for a game room tv. Or you want one in your kitchen, or even use it as a computer monitor. Variety is the spice of life, and you can't go wrong.
A( The volume isn't bad, but some programs can be slightly hard to hear, I was watching Justified and I had to have it on 50 just to hear clearly. Yet, watching The Hills on MTV I needed it on around 10-15 so it's not so much about the TV itself, it's more so channel based.
Over all, the TV is a steal at the price and an investment that you should make if you're looking to purchase a TV around this size and price range. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this TV.
I highly recommend this TV for anyone questioning their selves about buying it. You will not regret buying it.

- Excellent TVs Review by Bob
I bought this TV at BJ's after purchasing the Vizio 19" for my kitchen. You can't go wrong with Vizio. I have 5 Vizio TVs now (19" & 23" LED, and two 32" & a 42 LCD) and I have had absolutely no problem with any of them. The picture quality matches or exceeds any other TV on the market and the price is very reasonable. One of the 32" TVs I use for my computer monitor which was my first Vizio bought in Dec. 06 and they all are still going strong.

- Fabulous Review by Kai
I purchased the Vizio 23" Razor LED LCD for my 10 yr. old son to go in his playroom. It was a steal at $230. (I won a bid on ebay). We love the tv. The Wii and Xbox look great on it. We are considering the 46" also. You can't beat the picture quality for the size, and the thinness and lack of heat is absolutely fabulous! Way to go Vizio.

- Outstanding TV! Review by LongIslandJimmy
Did my research. Looked at all the models. Finally settled on this TV and it did not disappoint one bit. Got it for $300 at Costco and for the price, I don't think I could have even come close on any other brand. Picture quality is exceptional. I'm using the straight QAM tuner to pull channels off my Cablevision service and it pulled in lots of digital content, including the locals in HD. Beautiful!
Sound quality (built-in speaker) is good, not great, but perfect for a bedroom TV.
One feature not otherwise mentioned, even here on the Vizio site, is the ability to PAUSE live TV if you plug in a thumb drive! Great bonus!
My only complaint so far is that the remote seems a bit too "directional" for my liking. May be the batteries are low (using the ones that it came with), but I seem to have to REALLY point the remote at the bottom-left corner of the TV to get it to work at all. And odd that if I press '04' then "OK", (to change to channel 4), then press "07" right after it, it ends up trying to go to channel 0407...why doesn't the "OK" work as expected.
Anyway, this TV will NOT disappoint you!

- Perfect Review by T.J.
$300 at Sam's Club, my fiancée and I bought it for our bedroom after months of comparing brands and sizes between 19" and 26"...we decided on the noicable difference in size between the 19 and the 23 and littledifference to the 26". The LED backlighting and efficiency in energy and price made it our choice and the razor has displayed flawless picture and sound with little to no adjustment, I would recomend this as a small room tv for anyone from tv fans to movie or gaming buffs or an amazing pc monitor

My husband and I have been looking for a TV for our bedroom and he had researched the 23" Razor and we bought it. We were very surprised by the picture that this TV has, but should we because this is our second TV. The only thing that I can find that I would want different is the sound, but that definitely was not going to keep us from buying it. We love our Vizio's and will continue to buy them. We have recommended them to many and will continue to. GREAT JOB VIZIO!!!!!

Just bought the Razor 23" TV for a bedroom, and was pleasantly surprised to fine the nice quality of all its packaging. Excellent directions, easy to read large booklet and easy to it understand with pictures. Telephone numbers to get in touch, and just a pleasant all around package. Easy to hook up a usb cable for your pictures in the back and view all your pictures too. I have a dvd, video combo hooked up to it and it was all so easy to do. Would recommend to anyone who likes to watch movies, Tv, in the privacy of the bedroom.

- Sweet TV Review by goodgame
I've been looking for the perfect high definition tv in a small form factor. Sure, 720Ps are inexpensive and you can get them anywhere, but I wanted the full blown 1080P. I started looking about 6 months ago, but didn't see anything that really fit my budget or particularly interested me, plus I wanted to wait for the LED backlighting technology to hit the shelves. Local dimming and prolonged life for the win. Then, while at Sam's club, I spotted this bad boy for $300. It lives up to it's name: the profile of this panel is very small, Plus 1080P, especially in a smaller TV like this 23", equals razor sharp clarity.
I use it for my xbox360, and as a computer monitor. It works really well for these applications. I don't subscribe to cable or satellite, nor do I really watch TV at all.

- great bang for the buck Review by hobbist
great audio and picture via surround sound and led backlighting instead of the
outgoing-outdated ccfl backlighting with decent 23" size screen from a
reputable television manufacture all at a affordable price that makes this deal
difficult to impossible to beat. the only thing that prevents it from being a perfect 10
is that the remote control is not backlit, other than that this tv set is perfect.

- Great HDTV for Xbox Review by Jason
Well I just purchased this Tv as a Gaming Tv for Xbox 360 and this is absolutely amazing. It is so nice my wife decided to take it and use it for her tv in the bedroom. although it is only 60 Hz it appears with no lag whatsoever. I have since then recommended and showed off this TV to all my friends and they went and got them. I am so satisfied with the new look and design that I am going to purchase the Vizio 110 Blue ray player on Wednesday just to compliment this Tv. I am a nerd when it comes to reviews and I love to look everything up as far as quality and performance. This tv at this price point is amazing and looks so sexy with its thin design. Go out and get one as there are plenty of places that have these on sale.

- overall, nice tv Review by js
Bought both a samsung LED 23 inch and the vizio to compare picture quality and sound. We have it in our kitchen in a "shadow box" custom made to hold a tv. It sits above the frig which is above eye level. We are very pleased with the angles that you can view without distortion unlike the LCD set. The sound is a bit tinny, but we don't watch movies, etc. in the kitchen. So this is fine. You can adjust the sound by turning off the surround sound. This allows you to add more bass, etc. The color is great. The only negative is we have a very bright room and there is alot of glare reflecting off the "glossy" screen. You don't have that with an LCD. Otherwise, we really like the set.

- Awesome TV! Review by MattyZ
I bought this tv after doing a lot of research between brands. The quality and price of VIZIO is something to be recognized. Everything down to the material and build quality of the remote is impressive. I have this tv in my bedroom, perfect size, and soon getting a mount for it. I use it with my Xbox 360 and it looks gorgeous. The SRS volume control is a great feature especially at night, and the surround sound works pretty good as well. Would HIGHLY recommend this TV to anyone. It's light, slim, and it produces awesome whites and deep black colors. For a TV this size theres nothing better. I will deff. be buying another VIZIO product in the future!

- Great tv Review by Coolio
I bought this tv for my bedroom and xbox 360 and a little to use as a monitor.
For the price this is was one of the best tv's out there because it has the new
technology of led backlight and the contrast ratio was pretty good for the size
the sound was ok but when you get used to it it was fine. Most of all it was great for my 360. It has full HD wich was really nice for the size and even though it was 60hz there was no lag like they said there would be if you didn't have 120hz. Trust me for this size 60hz is fine. Overall for the price and the new technology and it's size portable to move compared to a biger LCD. This is truly one of vizio and the best 23" tv's you can get.

- Good second TV. Review by Josh G.
I purchased this TV at Costco a few days ago, and it has impressed me so far. The picture is excellent. The sound has been good (although the display model at Costco had its speakers blown out so they were crackling, which did make me a bit nervous). I have it in my living room now, holding a place for my VF552XFT which should be arriving in a few days, thanks to Vizio's VIA VIP program. After that I am going to get a wall mount and move it to my kitchen, where I think it will be great as a TV to watch games while cooking, etc.
The only things I really don't care for are the touch buttons on the screen for channel, volume, etc., so I just use the remote, and the other thing is the menu system/setup. It just seems clunky, compared to other TV's I have had before.

For the last three days I've been trying to find a 32'' 1080 TV with a contrast ratio over 10,000. (of course for a reasonable price) Then I came across this 23" LED for cheaper than it is on this site, so I compared everything in the store for about 45 min. & said screw it LED is the "new thing" & no matter what I'm going home with a new TV!
Iv'e had the TV since lastnight & with all these vivid colors I can't even tell the picture is 10" smaller from my last 32". VIZIO GOOD JOB!!

Great TV for the Price I paid at BJ's ($299.00). Bought this for my bedroom. Waiting for Digital Set Top Box from Verizon, however, anaolg standard definition reception is exceptionally sharp. Colors are bright and very vibrant. Backlight LED technology creates a bright and clear picture. Can't wait to view digital1080p channels via HDMI input. Highly recommend purchasing this TV.

- Great Set! Review by dbsimms63
My wife bought me a VA22LFHDTV10T for Christmas for our bathroom and I was thrilled, until I walked into Costco today and saw the Razor. OMG! What a picture for such a small set. So I picked this up for $299 and am taking the VA22L back to Target. Don't get me wrong, the full 1080p on the VA22L is great, especially for $200, Target sale price, but for an extra $99, I felt the Razor was well worth it, especially for its size and features. I just can't wait for the VF552XVT to come out as it will be gracing my living room and retiring my 2003 Sony 34XBR 800 720p/1080i to my bedroom, at least until it quits working, then another Vizio will be in the room. My daughter saw the Razor and liked it so much, I'm returning the 24" Samsung T240HD that I got her for Christmas as a HDTV/computer monitor, and am getting her a 23" Razor too. I love Vizio, great products at a great price.

- Great Choice Review by Dylan
After a very long search for a tv for a bedroom, I bought this one. It is the perfect size. The display is amazing, and the sound is great. Set up was very easy and quick. The tv also works great with my playstation 3.

- Great TV And Computer Monitor Review by TonyG
I bought this TV hoping it was a good PC Monitor and was I right! Sharp colors great resolution. Picture on tv is just beautiful the best I have seen. Deep blacks vivid colors without being too strong. I highly recommend this TV to anyone and for those that are looking for a great computer monitor too. VIZIO is the best!

Gear Patrol loves our Vizio tv’s. The only argument we have is in trying to decide what we like better - their excellent HDTV offerings or the smoking prices at which they are offered...Read More
