When it comes to the flat panel TV market in the US one of the leading companies is Vizio. The company has been selling HDTVs for a much shorter time than other makers have, but it is one of the most popular brands in the country. This is due to the low prices and nice features the TVs offer consumers. One of the most popular lines of TV that Vizio offers is the XVT brand. Vizio has announced that it has added three new 3D TV models to the XVT series.
The three new models will offer 42", 47", and 55" screen sizes. The will also support Vizio Internet Apps and 1080p resolution. The sets all have multiple HDMI inputs, SRS TruSurround HD audio, and a 480Hz SPS refresh rate. The sets all also feature 802.11n WiFi for web connectivity and have LED backlighting.
The two larger screen models use TruLED tech with SmartDimming and the smaller screen has Razor LED technology. All of the 3D sets use Vizio active shutter glasses, which are sold separately. That is the big issue I have with 3D TVs today. Most come with no glasses and the glasses are $200 per pair typically making a family of four need to invest another $800 in glasses alone.
