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.
Thanks. I just ordered that model. I feel much better about my choice after hearing a first hand review.

Back on topic: I didn't know the other 3D TVs required special glasses. I guess they used alternating frames with shutters in the glasses instead of the polarizing glasses used in Theaters. Anyway, I've seen some 3D stuff (like Avatar). It's ok for short periods but watching a whole movie gives me a headache. I'll stick with 2D.

ITT: People claiming 3D is worthless because they bought an expensive TV with no media to show for it.

Color TV was a gimmick too, I bet.

Also getting used to 3D will be like getting used to reading in the car. It might be unfortunate at first, but it'll get easier it if you keep doing it. Jesus there's a lot of vaginas in here.

I don't like 3d really. I just saw tron and I found it annoying. The glasses cut out alot of the light and the picture seemed very dim. Also the picture looks slightly blurry compared to regular 2d. 3D will never look good until they can develop some method where the things that jump out look like a solid object rather than translucent and ghostlike.

this so called 3d is not 3d at all! I'm waiting for true 3d when you DON'T need the glasses and the TV does it for you

Don't know if it is a gimmick if it actually corresponds to something real and funcitonal?

I like 3D TVs not for the 3D effect but merely for the 120hz of loveness.

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.
Actually, I have N3D vision and I don't like it due to the headaches it gives me. I have weaker vision in my left eye and straining to see the 3D images makes my eye go nuts. Good job with the jumping to conclusions attitude. Why you would automatically assume that I am disliking something before trying it is beyond my comprehension.

Heaven forbid that an opinion or an experience go spoken on OCN these days.

it simply uses 2 panels with different polarization, and polarized glasses, so that each eye only see the light emitted by a different panel...

i just can't wait for 3D without glasses

Hell yes, I wear glasses, its really annoying wearing glasses over my glasses. I am not a big fan of 3d.

3D on TV's suck. When I was in Singapore during the summer I went to two Sony Styles and got to try their TV. I also got to try Samsung's at Sears and BJ's (my friend made up this thing about BJ's standing for "blow jobs") and they sucked. The Sony's felt like a box, like as if the stuff was going more into the screen instead of out and Samsung's probably only came out by a couple inches but I have to respect the fact that I had to stand like 2 feet away from the TV because of the cable to keep people from stealing the glasses but at BJ's you were probably where a couch would be and it still sucked.
