Default Vizio has really stepped it up

Went over to Sams Club today and picked up a Vizio 32" VIA XVT323SV Razor LED HDTV

It is 1080P 120HZ Edge lit LED with smart dimming and also has wireless internet access with apps like Netflix.
The remote is bluetooth and has a slide out keyboard on it. I can also control other equipment and the remote will send out those signals via IR.

I wanted a 32" for the bedroom and since we don't have a Directv connection in the room I wanted a tv with internet apps for us to watch Netflix. I hooked our old Sony upconverting HDMI dvd player to it.
The picture quality is incredible on this thing. It has gotten very high reviews and I can see why.
The sound is really nice too. Not some tinny sounding crap but a nice simulated surround. It is nice and loud too, more loud than I'll ever need it to be.
It has a lot of apps and one I really like is the Tune In app which allows you to listen to your local radio stations or tons of other ones from around the country. It also has a few games like Soduko and Texas Hold Em.

3 complaints...
The remote NEEDS to be backlit. Come on it is 2011, every damn remote should be backlit especially if it has a slide out keyboard on it.
The Netflix app is just like the XBOX 360, before it got the search capability. There's the problem, you can't search, only view and play your queue, suggestions, genres, recently played etc.
No YouTube app (not that big of a deal to me but again, it's 2011, every internet capable device should have YouTube)

I never really considerd Vizio tvs but I will definately consider them in the future. They have really stepped up their quality it seems.

Ok scratch the Netflix app off the complaint list.
The tv downloaded another update over night and now the Netflix app looks exactly like the Google TV interface and now allows searching.

It also added twice as many apps including Hulu Plus, Blockbuster, Craze and a bunch others.Craze has a bunch of free movies and under the horror section they even had Cannibal Holocaust

I heard Vizio is releasing a 3D TV that uses the same glasses that you wear in the theater.

I avoided a 3D TV for the living room last time around basically because of the stupid glasses so I'm looking forward to checking these out.

Here's an article about it http://news.consumerreports.org/elec...-tv-vizio.html

I don't care about 3D myself. Well it would be nice if they could use regular old glasses like at the theater but I don't know about the interlace problems like in that article, I can't stand those artifacts.

Thanks for the link, I'll definitely pass on passive 3D at the moment.

I also don't care for 3D simply because the shutter glasses give me a headache. I have no problems in a theater though. If they come out with a decent passive 3D product I'll be all over it but until then... HD is just fine with me.

This isn't an inherent limitation of passive 3D, just a shortcut that the manufacturers are taking (LG included.)

The ideal thing to look for would be circular (NOT linear) polarization with true 1080p, and we will see that some day, just not any time soon.
