    Great TV With Latest Features, June 3, 2012
    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KD 47-inch 1080p 240Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    Vizio background: Vizio is a privately held US corporation, with about 417 employees. Unlike other TV manufacturers Vizio handles design, engineering, and over sees manufacturing for their TV’s but outsources the manufacturing to 3 different companies in China, Taiwan, and Mexico. Vizio’s philosophy is to sell quality TV’s at value prices. Vizio doesn’t spend money on marketing and passes on the savings to its customers that purchase their products through Amazon and warehouse clubs.

    UPDATE 2/2/2013 Software Update – I have had this TV for 8 months and today is the first time that I saw a message on the screen that said software on this TV has been updated. The main enhancement is that switching between channels is much snappier. In the past I had 8 to 10 channels that would take a long time to switch. Now this is down to about 2 channels that only take 5 to 8 seconds to switch. Which is much better than it had been previously. If your TV is connected to the Internet you will receive the update. Otherwise I suspect that you may have to contact Vizio to obtain a software patch that you may need to put on a usb memory stick so that you can install the update to the system. In addition there are several additional applets that you can play with, but most of it is to access premium content, as in send money…

    This is a 47″ Vizio LED – LCD with Internet and 3D, this TV has all the latest features. The sound quality is average on this TV. It also has 4 HDMI ports, and comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses, and also has wireless connectivity. I bought the TV because of features, cost and because I wanted passive 3D not the active 3D that comes with expensive battery operated glasses.

    Why do I care about 4 HDMI outputs? Well this is now the de facto norm for best connectivity options.

    1) HDMI for Comcast cable box. If you want to receive 3D you will need to upgrade to a Cisco RNG 200 cable box (standard issue Comcast cable box doesn’t support 3D). The only connection on the Cisco that supports 3D connectivity is HDMI.
    2) HDMI for DVD/Blu-Ray player
    3) HDMI for new laptops that have HDMI output that will allow you to surf the Internet on your computer and view and listen to the output on your TV. I’ve used this to play episodes of missed TV programs from my local PBS website.
    4) HDMI one port to spare that I am sure will come in handy for something.

    The colors on this TV are really vivid, it makes you feel like you are right in the action! We also tried out the 3D feature and are very pleased with it.

    Adjustment for Watching Movies: My wife started complaining that this TV didn’t play back the movies right! I didn’t know what she was talking about. Looking back on the situation the best way to describe it is that all action on DVD playbacks looked artificially smooth, more like a smooth swan dance. I decided to research it and found out that this TV has a 240 Hz sampling rate to get rid of blurs on fast moving screen action. Well this 240 hz sampling up conversion apparently repeats frames and inserts new frames to accomplish what is does. The result is that the play back of movies from my DVD player didn’t look right. In order to fix this go into Advanced picture settings and turn off the reduce motion blur feature and your movies will now play as they should.

    Second adjustment: Tired of that annoying lighted Vizio logo on the front of the TV? Go into picture settings and turn off the display of the Vizio logo! Now the logo comes on briefly when you turn the TV on and then goes off!

    Third adjustment: We have an Onkyo surround system that we previously used with our Sony LCD TV and everything was fine. The digital output of my Comcast cable box fed my Onkyo receiver and there never was a lipsync problem. The Vizio TV has a significant time delay such that I was experiencing lipsync problems when using my Onkyo surround sound with the Vizio. I tried several different adjustments within the TV, none of which provided a solution to the problem. Fortunately this TV has a digital optical output on the back of the TV. I fed the digital output of my Vizio TV directly to my Onkyo Surround sound and that resolved the lipsync problem once and for all! You also have the ability within the TV advance audio to select either PCM or Dolby output for the digital output stream.

    Update 11/8/12: The TV has average sound quality and sometimes it is hard to discern conversations, realize that this TV has only basic speakers… We recently moved to a smaller home, i.e. downsized. Rather than setup the Onkyo surround system with all the speakers and wires I decided to replace it with a Vizio VHT510 5.1 Surround Sound System with wireless subwoofer. What you get with this is a sound bar that you can place in front of the tv set and a subwoofer that goes behind your chair. The wireless…

    We returned the set. 3D was unreliable., June 24, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KD 47-inch 1080p 240Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    A problem surfaced regarding the 3D rendering. It started to work only occasionally. The 3D image failed to show 3D. The registration was off. The images could not sync together correctly to produce a 3D image.

    When the problem surfaced, I wasn’t certain whose fault it was – the TV, or the Comcast signal, or the Motorola DVR box that fed the TV.

    On two occasions the set froze and even the manual buttons on the side of the TV failed to work. After unplugging the set and replugging into the electric, it rebooted.
    However the next time it happened I phoned Vizio Technical Support. She told me to once again unplug the set to reboot the computer in the TV. I did so and the 3D still failed to work. She said that the set “gets confused” by changing from 2D to 3D. She added that rebooting the set should’ve solved the issue but when even the rebooting failed it was time for them to send out a Service Technician to fix the TV.

    With only one week left in the Amazon trial period and with the realization that the software issue could easily recur anytime, I decided that the TV was so unreliable that it wasn’t worth it. So we returned the set using Amazon’s wonderful Return system. If it had been a hardware issue I could live with a quick repair, but software was a different matter. The Tech knew of no pending software updates to fix this issue.

    I have now ordered the Panasonic Viera 3D, TC-L47ET5 from Amazon.


    The picture is excellent, both regular TV and 3-D, after adjusting and tweaking the default settings. Picture quality and price are two big reasons for buying a particular brand of TV. Considering the reasonable price, this Vizio TV is a bargain.

    The 3D is amazing. The screen disappears and becomes a window you are looking through. Not only that but in some scenes objects appear to be floating in front of the TV, by as much as 30 inches! Incredible! Great job, Vizio! Can’t wait for the X-Games and the Olympics, both in 3D this year.

    My cons are mainly annoyances and things requiring getting used to.

    Several are what I consider design defects by Vizio.

    The Remote:
    The keys are tiny. Definitely not suitable for anyone with large fingers. The entire remote measures 2″ X 6″. The section with the keys on the front measures 2″ X 4″, not much room for all the keys on it.

    The “3D” key is almost lost at the bottom of the number keys instead of being prominent like the “V” key. The 3D key is nearly impossible to find in the dark as the keys are not backlit.

    I wonder if the word “Vizio” is adapted from a word meaning “Patience.” There is a very slow response time between key press and TV reaction. Before I realized this I pressed keys too quickly and the TV froze up. The keys failed to respond and even the manual buttons on the side of the TV failed to respond. I had to unplug the TV to get it to reboot. I have since learned patience.

    User Guide:
    Starts you off with internet settings, rather than TV.

    Not printed. The startup guide is marginally useful. The in-depth operational details are in the online manual (not even a CD provided) and require the user to download and print out the manual. You would think that considering the cost of the TV they would spend the nominal amount to give you a printed manual.

    The manual refers to a TV mode of “Sensio” but fails to explain what it is.

    Do not be concerned if the initial TV picture color looks, well, awful.

    This TV requires much fine tuning through many levels of submenus to get decent color. I enjoy playing with settings and submenus so it was an enjoyable experience for me. Non-techies will have a harder time.

    It is very disappointing that the TV fails to recognize which type of 3D is incoming. There are two flavors of 3D signal, “above and below” or “side by side”. This requires the user to go to the 3D menu and select the correct 3D source. A tedious four step process considering how slowly the TV responds to each key press. Then when you want to return to 2D TV you must go through the process again. A quicker method not found in the manual is to locate and press the tiny 3D key at the bottom left of the alphabet. I am hoping that Vizio will come up with a software enhancement that can recognize the type of 3D signal.

    This TV is definitely not “Instant On”. It is “Press and Wait”. When you turn on the TV it takes several seconds for even the Vizio logo to light up, then an additional approximately 15 seconds for a picture to appear.

    Be aware that on some key pressed the screen will go black. Not to worry. It is working on your key press and will eventually bring the picture back with your change. It would be helpful if there were an onscreen icon of some sort…

    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KD 47-inch 1080p 240Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    This my first HDTV. I spent a lot of time reading customer reviews and comparing prices. I finally settled on this tv because I wanted 3d (not so much for now, but figuring it was the wave of the future and I wanted a tv that would have the feature three years from now) and CNET gave it a very good rating (there weren’t that many reviews out on the product yet). Vizio did get good reviews on its other 47″ LCD 3d TV (E3D470VX) so I figured this tv would be just as good, but with 240 HZ instead of 120 HZ.

    I was originally going to get it from Sam’s Club because it was $50 dollars cheaper there; however, Amazon has the low price guarantee. So I ordered it from Amazon. I had to email them a day after it arrived to ask about the guarantee because there was no “lower cost” button that I could see on the order page. There was no hassle in having them credit me the lower price and Sam’s Club had reduced it another $50. So, besides getting the same price as Sam’s Club, I saved sales tax ($50).I ordered it on a Monday morning. I have Prime so I had free 2 day delivery; however, for $3.99 more they offered next day delivery. The tv was delivered Tuesday afternoon. Set up was a breeze. Basically, all I needed to do was screw 8 screws in to attach the base to the tv and it was ready to go (the power cord was even plugged into the back). I plugged the coaxial cable into the tv, turned it on and it went into set up mode. A quick start booklet does come with the tv which was very helpful and I downloaded the user manual from Vizio for future reference.

    I have had absolutely no problems with the tv. The picture looks great (I also connected the tv through my cable box and the HDMI connection). I was surprised when I hooked it up originally just through the coax cable that all the local channels also had HD signals. Of course, through the cable box I know have full access to all HD channels. I connected it to the internet (very easy to do) and connected the facebook app and also an app for my local tv channel website. I am a little disappointed that the web pages don’t come up full screen (they only use about 25% of the left side of the tv). Maybe I am just missing a setting.

    I did plug a thumb drive into the USB port with a movie I had downloaded from the internet. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it looked on the tv.

    My major disappointment is that it doesn’t seem as if the remote is programmable so that I can add my cable box to it. That would have been nice.

    I believe my cable provider does offer streaming 3d movie. If they do, I will update this review. As of now, I believe for the money, this was a great purchase!
