Showing 1-10 of 44
An excellent value in a 3D HDTV.
6 March 2013
Summary: I bought this to replace an older TV that no longer met our needs. This is a very nice TV with an excellent clear picture, at least in 2D. I have not tried 3D yet. It hooks up to my Onkyo home theater receiver painlessly and produces a sharp, bright picture. The controller is easy to use, and I like the keyboard integrated with the controller. For the money this is an excellent HDTV.
Summary: This was an easy setup, has a great picture in HD and 3D, it has good sound but I added a sound bar for the theater effect. I'm not a techie so the setup must be easy. The NETFLIX app doesn't work but I only found one person who said they got it to work. This seems to be a problem with all brands of TVs. I get the Netflix app on the TV thru my bluray player so no problem. My set was advertised as 120 HZ so I assume it is.
Summary: Biggest mistake buying this tv! Trust me, if you plan on buying this tv online or at a store, check out costco's website review of the tv . For all the 42, 46 & the 55" has this problem. Not a , "Oh yea it happens to "Every" tv" (Vizio M3D*0SR tvs). But!, your mostly likely to have this problem and there's "NO" solution or I wouldn't be writing such a poor review. I went through 5!!
Summary: After doing my research I found that LED TVs over all have the best picture quality. Doing my own comparing I come to see that this is true. Getting a great price on this TV I decided to get it. 3D is the icing on the cake. 3D picture is very good, I won't say it is the best but it is really good. 2D picture is great, I am very happy with it. Having 4 HDMI inputs comes in very handy seeing I have a large number of electronics.
Summary: Purchased the Vizio M3D460SR a year ago and am using it as our main family TV. Feeding Dish HD, Blu-Ray 3D, and AppleTV sources into it, all using HDMI connections. While I've been impressed with the 3D performance (Avengers ROCKS!), my family will call me a TV picture fanatic in that I'm VERY picky about the quality of the image (I don't like inaccurate colors, modeling of faces, images which are too dark, and blurring of fast moving scenes).
Summary: There is a lot to like about this tv but the three things I am writing about virtually negate all the positive attributes. The first and least important complaint I have is that it takes a while for the tv to show a picture after turning the unit on. And, it is hard to tell whether it is powering up or just not on yet so you have to wait 30 seconds or so and then if it does not come on, click the remote's power button again which will either turn it on or perhaps turn it...
Excellent choice, if you can control ambient lighting

Summary: Pros: Excellent picture quality, even on Standard Def (digital) channels. The surround sound speakers are awesome, but highly dependent on TV placement and your room's acoustics; sound is just average if TV is not in an optimal position. Bluetooth remote and keyboard makes it easy to control features without having to worry about line-of-sight; great for bedroom use. WiFi connection works great for streaming.
