Vizio M221NV Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $18 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual electricity use is 2.4 kWh per inch of screen size. This is more energy efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 6 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has an average number of key features.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Vizio M221NV Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Electronic inputs are not available on the side of the TV. Devices such as video game and DVD players must be connected in the rear. – Vizio M221NV Review
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Vizio M221NV Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Vizio television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable with either a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Allows you to wirelessly tap into your home wireless internet service instead of using ethernet cables.
Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don’t have browser search capability.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Vizio TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Vizio television has a thin profile with a depth of only 2.1″. Slim TVs are attractive and more suitable for wall mounting. – Vizio M221NV Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers are rated at 6 watts of total output power, which is less than average. – Vizio M221NV Review
HDMI Only 2 HDMI input(s) is available. One or two HDMI inputs may not be sufficient. Do you need to hook-up a cable box, video game console, DVD player, or PC?
