Summary: If you've been waiting for a full-featured, big-screen LCD TV--and by big, I mean 5-feet-plus on the diagonal--that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, the Vizio XVT3D650SV may well be the answer to your prayers. For $2000 @ Walmart in Nashville, TN (as of March 13, 2012), this 65-inch LED-backlit set delivers good image quality and 3D support, plus tons of user controls and great connected-TV features, all easily accessible via Vizio's usual first-rate user interface and a...
Summary: The picture is excellent. The quality is excellent. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because you need to watch this tv in complete darkness. The reflection from any source of light reflects. Maybe a light behind the tv would help. Otherwise the 3d is amazing!!!!
Summary: I purchased this TV last week from our local Wally World store for just under 2K. Unsure why the price was 400 lower than the online but I have been waiting for a 3D capable 120hz 65 Inch LCD to break the 2K barrier and took a chance on this one knowing I could return it if it didn't cut the mustard. My 3D blu-ray player is not in yet so I will only review the 3D content I was able to view on DirecTV.
Cons: When using with a PS3 and playing video games, the unit will default to "Game Mode" as ON. If you are playing a game that outputs at 1080p or 1080i turn "Game Mode" OFF or you will get horrible flickering.
Summary: I love this TV but ran into a problem with playing games on my PS3 when the game outputs at 1080p or 1080i. If you leave Gaming Mode ON 1080p and 1080i enabled games will flicker every 30 or so seconds. Turning it off fixed the flickering. Passive 3d is amazing. I frequently forget I'm wearing glasses.
Summary: I don't want to rehash on what many people already said, but to add on what was generally said... It has very good 2D display. Local dimming is really effective. Odd thing is that on some all black scenes, the LEDs don't dim, but on others, they do. Maybe it has to do with the level of black where it thinks it should be considered dark enough to not light up the LEDs. In 3D mode, much of the functionality disappears, such as local dimming.
Summary: I was wandering around Sam's Club for no good reasons and what do I see in the middle of the isle in the clearance section? This giant TV sitting on a cart. I took a closer look and it was Vizio XVT3D650SV. I had been looking for this TV for a few weeks just to see how the passive 3D TV looks. The set looked like it was in very good shape. No price on the TV...the store person told me it was $1799. I made sure that everything worked and brought it home the same day.
Pros: Easy set-up. Big screen matters. Blu-ray very good. Good color rendition. Passive 3D enjoyable (loss of resolution not annoying). Value. Very good intuitive remote.
Cons: Black levels too light. Excessive backlight bleeding in the corners. Some smearing during rapid movement. Glossy screen reflects everything. 2D low-definition material suffers from too little resolution on too big a screen.
Summary: I have been trying to decide what would replace my 7 year old Sony 55" LCD rear projection, which has served me very well, for nearly a year. My requirements were 65"+ (otherwise, what is the point). 3D was not mandatory, but I was not opposed to it. My first close look was the Samsung 65" LED, but found it was plagued with burning white spots. Not being able to find this TV anywhere to witness firsthand kept me from going ahead.
