Vizio VM230XVT, VM190XVT

vizio razor ledLED backlit LCD HDTVs have become more and more common over the last year, especially with Samsung’s vast LED HDTV range.

But until now this LED backlit technology have remained exclusively in large HDTVs and portable devices such as laptops and netbooks. They are favored over standard CCFL backlights as they use less power and provide better colors.

Vizio have now taken the LED technology to their new Razor LED range of smaller LED LCD HDTVs.

The 23-inch Vizio VM230XVT and 19-inch Vizio VM190XVT both feature LED backlights for improved contrast and colors, along with very thin profiles. Both have a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and the larger 23-inch VM230XVT has a full HD / 1080p resolution.

Both models can also be used as a digital picture frame via the USB port. Both of the Vizio Razor LED HDTV range are very energy efficient, and beat the new Energy Star 3.0 ratings by over 50%.

The Vizio VM190XVT will cost $349 and the larger VM230XVT will be $399.
