Introduction

It seems like all you see today is flat panel monitors and TV's and that's basically true. LCD's take up far less space, they weigh less and most importantly they look MUCH better than their CRT counterparts. Today we will be looking at the VX20L 20-inch Widescreen LCD HDTV from Vizio. The 20-inch size makes it perfect for the dual solution for a TV and computer monitor. Something you would use in a dorm room or even as a spare monitor. This HDTV features a 1366 x 768 (720p) native resolution, built-in HDTV tuner, and HDMI input. Let's take a look...

Packaging

We received the display directly from Geeks.com. As always it came very quickly and was well packed. The display itself comes in its retail package, which is very colorful and has a picture of the display on the front. On the side you will find all of the features and specifications.

Opening the box up the display is nicely protected with large pieces of Styrofoam and wrapped with plastic. There was no screen protector on the display, but there were no visible scratches. Once we get everything out of the box we have the HDTV, remote, and a piece of paper that tells us where to download the manual.
