6/2/2013 OK here is my latest update on satisfaction with this TV.

I have two major things that really irk me with this TV set.

1) First this TV can take up to 8 to 10 seconds to sync/display some TV stations when switching TV cable channels, it will display a black screen during that time period. If the TV looses sync during a program due to a loss of channel sync by the cable carrier it can take 8 seconds to go from a black screen to resuming picture play back.

2) I use a Sony sound bar with this TV and it is connected to the digital optical output of the TV. I have constant lip sync problems that really drive me crazy, voice and video are not in sync!

This week the TV is exactly one year old. I paid $900 for it a year ago and was trying to find a way to justify replacing it. I figured that if I sold it I would probably get $300 for it, and my wife would probably kill me. Well as luck would have it my college age daughter told me that the Vizio TV that I purchased for her in 2009 was dying, i.e. LCD back light was going bad! So much for Vizio quality. I decided to seize the opportunity and offered to give her my 47" one year old Vizio. So now she is very happy! I'm also very happy because I went out and purchased this years Samsung 55" TV model (see my other reviews). I am happy to say that no longer do I suffer from channel lag when switching TV channels and no longer do I have a lip sync problem when using my Sony surround sound bar.

I have purchased my last Vizio product. I have had 2 Vizio TV's and a Vizio sound bar and all have had problems. Yes I paid a steep premium for my Samsung TV, but I love it. I also have a Samsung TV purchased in 2006 and it's problem free.

FINAL UPDATE:
A problem surfaced regarding the 3D rendering. It started to work only occasionally. The 3D image failed to show 3D. The registration was off. The images could not sync together correctly to produce a 3D image.

When the problem surfaced, I wasn't certain whose fault it was - the TV, or the Comcast signal, or the Motorola DVR box that fed the TV.

On two occasions the set froze and even the manual buttons on the side of the TV failed to work. After unplugging the set and replugging into the electric, it rebooted.
However the next time it happened I phoned Vizio Technical Support. She told me to once again unplug the set to reboot the computer in the TV. I did so and the 3D still failed to work. She said that the set "gets confused" by changing from 2D to 3D. She added that rebooting the set should've solved the issue but when even the rebooting failed it was time for them to send out a Service Technician to fix the TV.

With only one week left in the Amazon trial period and with the realization that the software issue could easily recur anytime, I decided that the TV was so unreliable that it wasn't worth it. So we returned the set using Amazon's wonderful Return system. If it had been a hardware issue I could live with a quick repair, but software was a different matter. The Tech knew of no pending software updates to fix this issue.

I have now ordered the Panasonic Viera 3D, TC-L47ET5 from Amazon.

EARLIER COMMENTS:

PROs:
The picture is excellent, both regular TV and 3-D, after adjusting and tweaking the default settings. Picture quality and price are two big reasons for buying a particular brand of TV. Considering the reasonable price, this Vizio TV is a bargain.

3D:
The 3D is amazing.

This my first HDTV. I spent a lot of time reading customer reviews and comparing prices. I finally settled on this tv because I wanted 3d (not so much for now, but figuring it was the wave of the future and I wanted a tv that would have the feature three years from now) and CNET gave it a very good rating (there weren't that many reviews out on the product yet). Vizio did get good reviews on its other 47" LCD 3d TV (E3D470VX) so I figured this tv would be just as good, but with 240 HZ instead of 120 HZ.

I was originally going to get it from Sam's Club because it was $50 dollars cheaper there; however, Amazon has the low price guarantee. So I ordered it from Amazon. I had to email them a day after it arrived to ask about the guarantee because there was no "lower cost" button that I could see on the order page. There was no hassle in having them credit me the lower price and Sam's Club had reduced it another $50. So, besides getting the same price as Sam's Club, I saved sales tax ($50).I ordered it on a Monday morning. I have Prime so I had free 2 day delivery; however, for $3.99 more they offered next day delivery. The tv was delivered Tuesday afternoon. Set up was a breeze. Basically, all I needed to do was screw 8 screws in to attach the base to the tv and it was ready to go (the power cord was even plugged into the back). I plugged the coaxial cable into the tv, turned it on and it went into set up mode. A quick start booklet does come with the tv which was very helpful and I downloaded the user manual from Vizio for future reference.

I have had absolutely no problems with the tv. The picture looks great (I also connected the tv through my cable box and the HDMI connection).
