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 Television

Internet-Ready Television

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.

The 2D image here is extremely sharp, almost shockingly so. Remember when you first moved from SD to HD and all the TV shows suddenly seemed kind of... shabby? As if the sets just weren't up to HD scrutiny? The image here is so clear, the colors so deep and the contrast so high, that you can have that experience over again. Sometimes it even feels like the 2D images are 3D. Compared to my earlier sets, it's actually disorienting.

I've made some changes to the review to address questions and discoveries.

Calibration
As usual, the out of the box settings tend to favor a brightness that could give you a tan. However, the default "movie" mode tones things down a lot (and looks very much like what I got after spending hours on calibration, so you may want to spare the effort and just make that quick selection, assuming all these things emerge from the box equal). Technically, the out of the box modes all seem to run a little to the "warm" side, so you'll need to cool the image down a bit if you want the textbook values, but I find myself liking the warmer image a bit better. Somehow (even though I know better) it looks more lifelike.

Screen glossiness
The screen is glossy. Yup. I've found that it doesn't cause a problem during the day because the set's inherent brightness shrugs off evenly distributed lighting from reflected sources (I don't get direct sun on the set, but that would be inadvisable for most sets). And naturally, the set looks great in a dim room. However, if you're sitting down and have some lamps in front of it at night, they can be reflected. Some reflections even give a scattered, prismatic effect that can be distracting. It's not a big deal. It doesn't take on the mirror-like appearance of some screens.

Let me preface this review first off with the fact that I have not yet purchased the 3d glasses, so this review is about everything else.

I ordered mine through Sam's club on a day when they had free shipping, so I paid $1999 plus sales tax. Purchased on December 11th.

Superb clarity and 2d picture quality. Almost shockingly so, the picture is very crisp, details pop. Color was obviously crap from the retailer, as with any tv you will want to make sure you adjust it accordingly. Brightness for mine was way too high from factory, and colors were a bit off. If you don't want to go with a professional calibration from someone with the hardware to do it, a good baseline is to use a THX certified dvd or blu-ray made within the past few years and find the THX optimizer in the menus. Blacks are very black, not that sort of greyish backlit black you get from edge lit or ccfl backlit models. Very impressed with black level.

The tv has plenty of inputs, enough hdmi to hook up lots of dvr, gaming system, htpc, etc. Same with audio inputs. You do get an rgb pc input with a 3.5mm audio in to match, pretty standard on a vizio, but not included on alot of other maker's sets. Three USB ports that are currently useless (more on that later). One good thing to note is that the hdmi inputs are downfacing, which make this set a decent choice for wallmounting. Unfortunately most of the audio inputs as well as the rj45 ethernet jack are rear facing.

The menu system is a fairly straightforward layout. You have the regular audio and video options, the input selection, and the via internet apps stuff. It isn't terribly difficult to navigate around and find what you are looking for.

I really wanted the CNET Best Buy rated 55" non 3D model XVT553SV but couldn't find any in stock anywhere. The 47" had some good deals but is just too small when you compare it to bigger sets. I'm so happy I bought the 55" 3D instead. The 2D picture is absolutely stunning but the 3D is simply amazing and worth the small increase in price compared to the difference in price to a non 3D Samsung. Everyone should demo a 3D in a store before writing it off as a gimmick. DirecTV already has 3 dedicated channels and more 3D video will surely be on the way soon. Games will probably lead the revolution in 3D but 3D sports broadcasts will be awesome as well. The new BluRay players are also now 3D capable. Vizio has long had a rep for the best prices but now they have the best technology and features along with the best prices.

This is a complicated entertainment system- not just a TV. It takes a while to get used to, to set up and to test all the amazing features. Most people will never use all of them but there is something amazingly new and cool for everyone. Even the remote is way ahead of its time and needs to be used a lot to get comfortable with. Think of it as a large cell phone with a slide out full keyboard to access all the aps. The LED backlit technology, 480hz refresh rate, the 55" size, the HD 1080p picture quality and the wireless internet all open the door for the future of internet TV and home entertainment. The 3D just adds one more exciting element to the platform that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Its not your father's 3D! Even my wife loves it. This is one of those major innovations that if you don't buy now to save a few bucks you will always wish you had. Your next TV should be a backlit LED, in 3D and offer wireless internet aps and firmware updates.
