Vizio has added two small-sized LED LCD TVs that have profiles of less than one inch, the 19-inch VM190XVT and 23-inch VM230XVT.

The TVs use edge-lit LED backlighting that is usually found on larger screens. Only the 23-inch model is 1080p, but both feature 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios, 5ms response times and 300 nits of brightness.

Both models also offer two HDMI inputs, a standard PC input, SRS TruVolume to eliminate “volume inconsistencies” and SRS TruSurroundHD.

Other features on both TVs:

  • Ambient light sensors that automatically adjust TV brightness
  • A USB drive to view photos on the TV
  • Photo frame mode to view slideshows
  • Proximity sensitive touch controls that light as you approach the TVs

Vizio says the 19- and 23-inch TVs exceed Energy Star 3.0 standards by 55 percent and 65 percent, respectively.

Both the 19-inch VM190XVT and 23-inch VM230XVT are currently available. MSRP: 19-inch ($349.99); 23-inch ($399.99)
