3D Technology Checklist
This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need. 3D viewing requires:
| ||A Display |
First, you'll need a 3D-ready display--whether it's a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have more processing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.
| ||A Source |
Your display may be ready for 3D playback, but you'll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.
| ||3D Content |
3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether it's a 3D broadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.
| ||3D Glasses |
For now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, others polarized "passive" glasses. You'll need one pair per viewer, and they'll have to be compatible with your display, whether they're the same brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.
| ||HDMI Cable |
To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite you to visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.
Internet-ready TVs use your broadband connection to deliver dynamic content, whether it's streaming video from Netflix, new music from Pandora, or a quick glance at today's weather forecast.
Although there is overlap, each manufacturer offers a unique bundle of free or paid services, including streaming video and music, social networking apps, online photo galleries, news and financial updates, weather info, sports scores, and a variety of other smartphone-like applications.
Manufacturers continue to add new content to their offerings, keeping customers current through firmware updates, and making a bit of research a prudent step in your buying decision.
Learn more about Internet TVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at our Internet TV 101 customer center.

Bring that intense 3D movie experience home with VIZIO's polarized Theater 3D.

Razor LED Backlighting With Smart Dimming
Edge-Lit Razor LED backlighting with Smart Dimming intelligently controls each block of LEDs, automatically turning them completely on and off to create serious contrast, vivid colors, and top-notch picture quality.

240Hz Refresh Rate
240Hz SPS Smooth Motion technology delivers 240 scenes per second, producing an enhanced frame rate and delivering crystal-clear fast action scenes, free of motion blur.
Optimal Viewing in Any Light
No matter your lighting arrangement, you'll always have the best picture possible thanks to built-in ambient light sensing technology. The M3D460SR automatically adjusts backlight levels based on its surroundings to optimize levels. The result is a balanced picture that will never appear washed out or too bright.
VIZIO Internet Apps
Easily connect to the Internet and stream movies and TV shows, listen to music and get the latest news, sports and weather. The M3D460SR connects wirelessly over an 802.11n Wi-Fi connection (or via a built-in Ethernet port if you'd prefer) to your home network. Once you're set up, you'll enjoy access to Internet content such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and VUDU for streaming TV shows and movies; Pandora Internet Radio for discovering new music; your favorite social networking apps like Twitter or Facebook; photo-sharing services like Flickr and Picasa; and the latest news from the Associated Press and The New York Times. With a simple Internet connection, you'll get all that and plenty more. Plus, features are a breeze to navigate with the included Bluetooth remote, which boasts a slide-out QWERTY keypad for data entry.
Four HDMI Ports
Four HDMI ports accommodate your home theater setup, Blu-ray Player, gaming console, and satellite or cable TV, for a wealth of Full HD entertainment. One features the HDMI 1.4 spec Audio Return Channel, meaning you can send audio back to your home theater receiver on the same cable, rather than using the separaate S/PDIF output.
Spectacular Surround Sound
Treat yourself to an audio experience to match that HD video. StudioSound HD provides immersive surround sound over stereo speakers, complete with deep bass and crisp high-frequency details. It also effectively levels abrupt volume fluctuations, to deliver crystal-clear dialogue throughout programming. The end result is a complete and truly engaging theater-like experience over the built-in stereo speakers.
Exceeds ENERGY STAR for TV 5.3 Guidelines
This HDTV takes it easy on the energy consumption, exceeding ENERGY STAR 5.3 Guidelines, so your energy bill and the planet are both better off.
In addition, this display's backlight is more than other backlighting methods, since LED edge lights do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance.
VIZIO offers a one-year limited warranty on parts and labor for this HDTV, for some added peace of mind.
