42” Theater 3D™ LCD HDTV with VIZIO Internet Apps | E3D420VX
Product Review (submitted on November 3, 2011):
I was cruising through wal-mart and couldn't believe it, a 3D TV for under $1000. So I watched some demo's, and decided it was time to replace my 46" Sony Bravia 120Hz with this bad boy. Going to skip the standard reviews that everyone else has posted, I agree with all the positive comments on picture, however, recommend that if this is a main viewing TV to pickup an external sound system for it.
Something no one seems to have mentioned yet which boggles my mind is the connectivity between the TV and a PS3. In the settings you can link the TV to your PS3 and actually use the Vizio remote to control your PS3. In addition, if your like me and don't watch regular TV, you can set the TV up such that when it powers on, it will also power on your PS3! No more searching for my lost PS3 controller in the dark!
One downside I've found as a tech geek though is the lack of DLNA support directly from the TV. However, with the TV's ability to control a PS3 directly (Note, my SONY TV wouldn't control my SONY PS3, go figure...) you can easily circumvent the lack of DLNA support by using a PS3 or attached BD Player with DLNA.
All in all, was skeptical due to past experiences with Vizio TV's (horrible image burn in short periods on my 32" Vizio Plasma), yet decided to give Vizio a second chance and have yet to be disappointed by this TV. Kudos Vizio, you have outdone yourselves with this amazing set.
