VIZIO brings LED backlights to small TVs

updated 09:45 am EDT, Wed October 28, 2009

VIZIO Razor LED comes in 19, 23 inch models

VIZIO today claimed a small first in HDTVs by launching two small LCDs with LED backlighting. The 19-inch VM190XVT and 23-inch VM230XVT are more color-accurate as a result of the new illumination and are also more energy efficient; they consume less power at peak but also have ambient light sensors to dim the display in dark environments. Each has a display that measures less than one inch at its thinnest point.

The 19-inch Razor at $350 can handle up to 720p images with a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio uncharacteristically high for its size. Its larger counterpart shares the same contrast ratio but also outputs natively at 1080p. All can take HDMI, component, RCA, S-Video and VGA.

Either set should be available soon, though VIZIO hasn't provided an exact release date.
