Excellent value and the Passive 3D is really amazing
The picture quality is amazing, and that is saying a lot coming from plasma. I'm still playing with a lot of the settings and fine tuning the colors, but so far I prefer the Calibrated settings with some tweaks. I don't like the soap opera effect, so during normal TV viewing, I turn the smooth motion off.
Fantastic TV for the price!
I narrowed it down to this TV compared to similarly priced Samsung or LG. I'd like to say that maybe I got lucky (knock on wood) but the edge-light bleed is not so bad. After reading some forums about edge-light problems some people have had, I was expecting a nightmare. I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting).
Great picture... as long as you get the settings right
When I first turned on this set I thought the picture quality and color saturation were simply stunning...but. While watching our first well-produced drama program and then a golf broadcast, problems soon became apparent. Even though I'm reasonably well versed in TV set-up, were it not for our professional installer, I'm fairly sure I would have put this 140 lb set back in the box and shipped it back.
Very good set of streaming options
The Vizio M3D470KD's low price, very good image quality, and keyboard remote control make it a serious contender for the bang-for-the-buck crown. The audio problems and other quirks make the set less than perfect, but those shortcomings are negligible if you don't use your HDTV's built-in sound system.
Has a beautiful Razor thin design.
Advanced picture technology combined with a super thin profile make the Vizio M3D550KD TV a prized buy for anyone who is looking for a high quality 3D Smart TV.
Even though you may have to spend a little time fine tuning your picture once you unbox this television, this minor annoyance will seem like nothing compared to the stunning picture quality that you will be able to get once you are finished.
Very poor screen performance.
The CinemaWide is a niche television, meant for niche consumers.
From the standpoint of the average consumer, there are only a couple of huge draws to this TV. It's a mixed bag of successes and failures by traditional standards. Its unassisted motion interpolation, screen uniformity, color temperature integrity, and color gamut range from poor to just average. It's also got an astoundingly narrow viewing angle for being so wide.
Picture quality good. Some concerns
I've had it for a week now. Here are my observations:
2d to 3D conversion: Though not as good as native 3D content, this TV does a remarkable job. I've tested this feature on a couple football games and the stadium looked recessed where it should. The 3D depth can be controlled too. It works best where there is an obvious difference in depth.
3D broadcast: I tested "the Lorax" on Dish VOD and it looked great though there were some places where crosstalk could be seen.
Bright Picture Capability with strong Peak Whites.
One of the reasons I've mentioned plasma TVs throughout this review in comparison with these new huge Sharp LED TVs is that they compete in price and value. Sharp has really set the benchmark in these very large LED-LCD screen sizes with compelling pricing. Panasonic and Samsung have great plasma TVs with some superior but very different picture attributes. It really depends on your needs. Regardless, there are plenty of 60" plasma choices and even some 65".
Deep black levels produce a great contrast ratio
If we scored TVs strictly for being charming, this Sharp would be a clear recommendation. The LC-60LE847U (MSRP $2,700) is about as charming as a 60-inch television can be: the brushed metal-style base, the unintentionally retro menus, and the coffee table-sized user manual all contribute to this. At TelevisionInfo.com, we base our scores on results and this TV was found lacking.
The LC-60LE847U runs into problems in three key areas: color quality, 3D, and its Smart TV platform.
The Review You Were Looking For
This Television out preforms all the Television set I have seen, even the Samsung 8000 series. It has so many features, you will feel that you just robbed Vizio of their money about $1000. The 3D is okay, but you shouldn't worry; no one will have a TV even close in quality to this one! The accessories are great, with amazing prices. You will ultimately feel that you are leagues ahead of any other TV.
Amazing 2D, broken 3D.
Overall, I absolutely love the 2D, but the 3D is pretty much busted. I've only had the TV for a couple of days, but I'm considering about taking it back and getting a refund. I have 90 days to make a decision, so I do plan on calling/emailing Vizio to see if the crosstalk issue can be resolved by new glasses or a firmware update. I gave my review 3 stars to split it's strengths and weaknesses down the middle. 3D is the big feature of this model and it just doesn't work as it should.
Bright, clear images
Despite a couple of minor faults, it seems that LG has ended its poor showing so far by releasing the LX9500. If you treat it with care, not only does it look great in your lounge room it looks great when turned on. If LED local dimming is this good now, we look forward to what future versions bring.
Great image quality and contrast levels
LG's best 3D LED television is an excellent all-rounder apart from its mediocre display of 3D content. It has excellent picture quality and a very high contrast ratio, and offers some very well implemented video-on-demand features. Apart from the form-before-function glossy screen and occasional minor backlight cloudiness, the 47LX9500 is an excellent LED television that is among the best on the market.
After spending hours with this panel, we have reason to believe the 55-inch LX9500's strengths has outweighed its shortfalls. LG's BORDERLESS design is quite the charmer, except for a terribly reflective glass front. If you are enticed by a minimalistic form factor, then its slim profile and skinny bezel would strike a chord for sure. The LX9500 has a generous selection of AV connectors, including four HDMI and two USB ports in all.
Treats streaming video apps as a separate input
While the Vizio XVT423SV is not the best television we've ever seen, it's solidly above average--so if you're not looking for anything to blow away your friends, it's a pretty good choice.

good color and detail
The 42-inch TruLED LCD Vizio XVT423SV is a serious option if youâ??re looking for an affordable 42-inch HDTV with a nice array of Internet applications. This 1080p television with a 240Hz refresh rate ($1280 as of October 8, 2010) delivers above-average picture quality. The TV has a shiny black bezel and sits on an oval, nonswiveling stand. Black speakers situated below the television are visible on either side of the standâ??s squat neck.
