Review of Vizio VW32LHDTV40A 32
I purchased a 32" Vizio VP322HDTV10A Plasma HDTV about a month ago from Walmart (they seam to have very good prices on Vizio TV's). Overall I have been very happy with the TV.
One of the main concerns when I purchased the TV was how well the Plasma display would perform during the daylight. Plasma TV's can have more problems with glare than their LCD counterparts. While you will certainly see some reflections on the screen if the TV is in a bright room, it really is not that bad. It is not any worse than the glare you would have from a regular old CRT tube TV.
The TV has great picture, and performs really well for sporting events, and action. I don't usually watch Golf on TV, but the picture quality is so realistic on a high definition broadcast, you can't help but watch for a bit.
The only thing that I am not a huge fan of is the on screen graphics the TV provides, they are very low quality, and the fonts they use are not anti-aliased, so you get blocky text from a 1980's computer for things like closed captions.
The remote is very simplistic, anyone who is overwhelmed by complicated remote controls, or appreciates simplicity in design will like the remote. Most options that might have their own key are deferred to the main menu. The feature I use that is hard to get to is turning closed captioning on (we use this when the baby is sleeping sometimes) you have to hit a few buttons to turn it on. The TV does have a feature that automatically turns on CC when you hit mute, which is nice.
