OK, here let me rephrase everything. Just by using the monitor, I notice some parts of the monitor is not as sharp, blurry (middle of mon). I hooked it up to my computer to use a monitor test to test it. It failed the horizontal test, does anyone know a way to fix it? This is already my 2nd vizio. I have had the same problem for both of them.

here is a picture (picture a):

That's similar to how mine looks

I can't explain it, but would you mind downloading this monitor test here: http://www.benchmarkhq.ru/fclick/fclick.php?fid=331

Its a .exe file, no installation needed. Just open it and click "Phase" then you should know what i mean. You should be seeing lines going across the screen, but it gets blurry in the middle for me, or different places. I can't get it fixed, and both of the vizio vx32l i got had the same problem.

edit: Are you using VGA? or HDMI - DVI ?

Im running it though VGA, Is HDMI- DVI worth it? The only reason i dont hook up to it because i dont know how to get audio out of the HDMI - DVI but i seen it has a L R Audio plugs right next to the HDMI

On an LCD, a poor VGA signal will blur certain parts of the image like that. You should use the available HDMI connection.
