Vizio VP322 32" Plasma HDTV

While the new for 2008 model VP322 does not reproduce a 1080p signal, a 720p or 1080i signal will be no problem. And at the 32” size level, we at feel that the user would not be able to tell the difference in this small size. “It's a very smart play to make this small size plasma very affordable when many competitors are producing higher resolution LCDs at higher prices.” said Robert Wiley, Sr. Editor with Consumer Electronics Advisory Group. “In addition it's good to see more plasma TVs produced at smaller sizes – they compete so well in picture quality.” The MSRP on this 32” plasma TV is just $599.

In addition to 3 HDMI inputs, the plasma claims 30,000:1 contrast and a 60,000 hour panel lifespan. The plasma houses two 10w speakers. While we are always leary of this kind of contrast ratio claim, it does look like a significant improvement over the companies LCD offerings.
