Help me choose the right small HDTV.

We've moved my mother into an assisted living facility. She needs a small television in her room. The room is the size of a large college dorm room, and the TV will be placed on a dresser opposite her bed so that it is viewable from both the bed and the recliner. Here's the thing -- she's hard of hearing, and many of the reviews of smaller flatscreen TVs specifically mention the tinny sound quality. So I'd like to get her a 22"-27" HDTV with front-facing speakers that is easy to operate. Picture quality is less important than sound quality. I'd like to spend less than $300. I have Amazon Prime.
The only TVs I've seen in this size range which have forward-facing speakers and are available at my price range via Amazon Prime are made by Vizio. Are these OK sets? Anyone have one? What other brands should I be considering? Anything else I should know that I've forgotten to ask?
