Stand/Mount


The Vizio VO320E's stand slots simply into the bottom of the television and does not rotate.

 

Controls


The on-tv controls for the Vizio VO320E are found on the right side of the television, recessed slightly behind the display and sitting just above the ports found on that side. The buttons themselves look somewhat like keys from a piano, and are glossy black. They are built to press 'in' towards the front of the television, so you can easily reach around and press them. Unfortunately they are all exactly the same, so you can't tell what button you are pressing by feel.

Remote Control


The Vizio VO320E's remote controls is a small and simple glossy black affair. As far as looks, well let's just say it's not the most attractive remote we've ever seen.

In The Box*(7.0)*


The Vizio VO320E ships with the bare minimum, a manual, remote control and batteries. There's no cleaning cloth or HDMI cable included. There is some assembly required for the Vizio VO320E, but the base slots very easily into the display, and is held in place by a single screw that can be tightened by hand.

 

Aesthetics*(4.0)*


The Vizio VO320E is not a particularly attractive television. They style is somewhat blocky and we don't particularly like the bezel. That said it's not going to stand out as an eyesore as the simple black design should blend into your decor easily.
