[sync-blog] Vizio debuts “theatre 3D” TVs

post #1 of 31

Vizio’s new 65″ HDTV does 3D just like every other manufacturer. The difference is their glasses are the same you find in movie theatres – no battery required.

I wonder why the other guys didn't do this? First News post, be gentle!

I like Vizio... and I think this will be good for a lot of people since they do not want to spend a ton of money on 3D glasses-- But I'm still not buying into the 3D gimmick. Makes my head hurt.

I have a Samsung UN55C7000, it hurts my eyes after a while, and even gave me a headache once. I've haven't sampled the theater 3D yet, is it any better?

Im not gonna comment on 3D because i havent really tried it that much and dont buy into it,

BUT

I have a Vizio XVT473SV (almost the same exact unit as these new 3d vizios), which is 47 inch full array led w/ interpolation to 240hz w/ max settings... and I have to say... the local dimming is AWESOME for dark scenes and contrast and picture quality of this tv is above that of any high end samsung ive bought over the past 5 years... Blacks is almost as good as my plasma in fact

I cant speak for their lower end LCD/LED tvs... like the edgelit razor series, but the Top end XVT tvs w/ their full array LEDs are a huge step in the right direction for that company.

They have always made average stuff and I never gave them a consideration, but after reading alot of reviews and checking them out myself I decided to give it a shot and I ended up keeping it.

Best Part? comes in 500-700 cheaper than an equivalent Sony/Samsung unit. Its a full array unit that comes in at the same price as the edge lit samsung, LG, and sony units

I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new tv to at least give them a good look and try to find one at a store thats playing a good source and play around with it.

And neither one of you have ever used Nvidia 3d Vision. Stop with the gimmick crap just because you've experienced the lackluster versions of 3d technology.

I personally suggest trying the 3d vision before bashing it. Also, if one of your B&M stores have a Nvidia 3d Vision setup at a store, try it out but also, remember to change the depth as it does take a bit to get used to it and also you will not be able to just put the glasses on and crank up the depth all the way and expect it for your eyes to instantly focus on it.

It does take some training of the eyes to enjoy 3d vision when you're not used to it.

I am not a big fan of 3D but I am a fan of Vizio. If I were to by a 3D Tv it would be from them.

I didn't bash it or cry gimmick, I have one ffs. Just stating the facts of my experience with the product I own. Also, who's to say that active shutter glasses don't require some eye training, same as you said about 3D Vision?

I've only used it a couple of times as I only have the 1 crappy movie that came with the glasses. Maybe it won't strain my eyes as much if I use it more, or possibly with some more FW updates, who knows.

Seen some theater 3D and I have to occasionally remove the glasses for a few seconds to alleviate the tension I experienced.
I have poor sight quality in 1 eye but the few second removal of the glasses refreshes my brain some how and after doing that a few times during the move all is well, go figure

OT
About time someone created a 3D home unit that don't require outrageously expensive glasses!
