Fantastic TV for the price!
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). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
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.
What I consider to be a budget friendly LCD TV
The out of the box colors, are set to factory specifications and I found them to be excellent. There was a minor tweaking with contrast to improve movie shadow detail in nighttime movie scenes. Other than that, everything is good to go, right out of the box.
Great TV for the bucks
It was easy to run through the setup and tweak the color and sound, and both are great. I could have spent more and gotten a bigger or "better" set, but we don't notice any difference between the RCA and my brother's 55" 1080p, (though we probably would in a side by side comparison). Our bottom line is that we have a HDTV that we are happy with, and spent $1200 less.
I've had this tv for a month now and am very impressed. once i shut off the 'smooth motion' it got rid of the 'soap opera' effect in the picture, and now looks fantastic. good sound for a hdtv, but if you want thumping bass, use an external system. the menu and settings are easy, although i'd like to see a quicker way to change picture modes (movie,sports,etc). the internet apps are nice, and the tv has very good wireless reception, full bars and >15mbps from across the house in another room...
120Hz refresh - 3D capable and fast refresh for gamers
The HN274H is a widescreen LCD display from Acer that offers a step-up from the company's HS244HQ model. Offering three-dimensional content playback via NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology, this model features a 27-inch backlit TFT display for high-definition viewing.
Full HD Resolution with HDMI 3D
Acer recently introduced the HN274H monitor, a 27-inch display with 3D capability. After testing this monitor hands on, I found the Acer HN274H to be an excellent performer in both 2D and 3D games. Although the HN274H is expensive at $689 MSRP, it is an excellent value when you consider the size and option for 3D gaming and multimedia. And while the viewing angles cannot compete with an IPS model, the Acer HN274H is a top buy for gaming enthusiasts.
Even brightness and 2-D function is easy on the eyes.
The HN274H bmiiid LCD Monitor from Acer solves this problem handily. To start with, it is a 27-inch 16:9 ratio widescreen monitor. We found its maximum resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels to be roomy, while not making everything so small you couldn't read it anymore.
Onscreen menus are among the best
At $899.99 retail the Vizio E3D470VX E-Series 47-inch Class Theater 3D LCD HDTV is a winner in more ways than one. As a 2D display the E3D470VX can more than hold its own with the competition providing an accurate and natural image that appears more organic and cinematic in its rendering than anything you're going to find at its asking price.
Nice TV, Short on inputs and technical support mediocre
Overall - if you set this up with HDMI cables and you have a non-Netgear router with a password that doesn't have spaces, then the TV is great. If you have equipment that need component input, pick another TV. Now that the TV is working, I would give it 4 stars. But the technical support drops this to 3 stars. Now that I know the issues, I would consider this TV again. But I would consider other TVs with built-in internet. However, the pricepoint for this TV is very attractive.
