The Vizio M221NV is a 22" mid-grade model LCD television released as part of Vizio's Razor television series. The M221NV model TV is one of the smallest available in the series combined with a total dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1.

The Razor line features bottom and top row LED lighting combined with "Smart Dimming" technology which provides what Vizio claims to be "greener performance, blacker blacks and whiter whites". Apart from the aforementioned dynamic contrast ratio all other aspects and features are nearly identical to the other Razor model TVs with exception of course to the total television size.

The Vizio M221NV individually includes a 250 NIT brightness rating, HDMI (2) and HDCP support, 16.7 million on screen colors, single band 802.11 wireless support, integrated Vizio internet apps, a unique Bluetooth enabled QWERTY remote control, full SRS audio support, and a 2.1" razor thin side profile/size.

All 2011/2010 Vizio televisions (Razor series) include Vizio internet application and entertainment on demand support. Through the use of the integrated Wi-FI functionality users can browse an online vizio marketplace and online entertainment and content. Several well known Vizio applications include Amazon Video On Demand, Facebook, Flickr, Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Twitter, VUDU, Yahoo! TV Widgets, Fandango, iMemories, MediaBox, My-Cast, TuneIn Radio, Web Videos, Wiki TV, and Yahoo! Fantasy Football.
