    Very happy I chose this TV, November 14, 2012

    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KDE 47-inch 1080p 120Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    I had been wanting to buy a Samsung 46″ TV for a long time, but after learning about (and witnessing) Samsung’s capacitor problem, I started looking at Vizio. I had heard good things about their TVs, and the bonus for me is that they’re an American company. I made sure to check out reviews for this model, and CNet declared it “one of the best LED TV values on the market.” I couldn’t agree more.

    Setup was very simple, no difficulties to report there. Just make sure to go into the menu and adjust the picture setting to your liking, since I found the picture to be kind of dark when I first turned on the unit. This was probably because my home theater setup is close to my front door, which has windows on the sides that create a lot of ambient light in that area.

    The remote is great! I love the fact that it has a full qwerty keyboard on the back. In an age of networked home theater components, it’s nice to be able to type in a search on Amazon Instant Video without having to use number keys, or worse, a d-pad to select and enter letters. Searching is so much less cumbersome now! There’s only one downside, which is that you have to be conscious of how you’re holding the remote so you don’t accidentally press keys on the back while you’re using the buttons on the front. Not a huge deal, though. Vizio could easily solve this with a simple hinged plastic cover over the back of the remote. Another plus is that there are 3 dedicated buttons at the top of the remote: one for Amazon Instant Video, one for Netflix, and one for M-Go. I only use the first 2, but prior to buying this TV, I had to navigate through a series of screens on my blu-ray player to get to them.

    I can’t really comment on the sound quality of this TV’s speakers, since all my audio plays through a surround speaker system. The only exception is the Nintendo Wii, which allows me to say that I have no complaints about the speakers compared to my expectations.

    The picture is nothing short of excellent. Deep blacks, vivid colors, ’nuff said. I did find one dead pixel, but that’s to be expected and it has no impact on the viewing experience. I haven’t watched any 3D content on it, so I can’t comment on that. Honestly, I couldn’t care less about 3D on a television. It had no influence on my decision to buy this TV.

    Hard to beat this Vizio TV in this price range., December 17, 2012
    Mark Rogers “Learned the hard way…so you do… (Beautiful Bucks County PA) –

    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KDE 47-inch 1080p 120Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    I have owned and used the VIZIO M3D470KDE for a few weeks now. I have read all of the reviews and comments here on A_Z. Here are my comments and responses:

    Overall value:

    This TV sells for a little over $700 but has many features found on more expensive TVs. (I bought it on “Black Friday” and got a $100 gift card as well, so my final outlay for this TV was $629). To compare it to TVs that cost $1000 or more misses the point. VIZIO M3D470KDE has 3D, Internet Apps, Remote with keyboard, very good picture quality and more- all at a very reasonable price. I think it is a great value in this price range. Is it as good as a $1200 Panasonic or Samsung? Maybe not. But it is a very good TV at a very good price. And for those who care about this sort of thing, Vizio is an American company, with administrative, engineering and technical support staff located here in the US, staffed by US citizens (the TVs themselves are not, however, made in America- unfortunately, no one that I am aware of produces flat-screen TVs in the US). My daughter has had a Vizio HDTV for about 5 years. It was passed on to my second daughter, driven across Pennsylavania a couple of times, transported in and out of apartments and dorms, set-up and taken down multiple times. It remains very durable and solid. So my experience with Vizio as a brand has been very good.


    This TV has a ton of inputs. 4 HDMI inputs, Ethernet (for wired network/Internet) RGB (for computer), Component Video & Audio, Digital Audio output, 2 USB inputs, Coax (for cable or antenna) and more. It can handle just about anything you can throw at it. There is no S-Video input, but devices that require S-Video are just about non-existent anymore. The inputs/output are on the lower right corner of the back of the TV and I have hooked-up all sorts of standard cables with no problems and have them hidden behind the TV on it’s wall mount. It found my wireless Internet connection easily (but I am using the wired Ethernet port for network/Internet). I had a weird issue getting my TiVo signal to pass through my Yamaha A/V receiver, but it lit right up when directly connected to the TV. I then used the Digital Audio out to get the sound from the TV back into the receiver (and from there to the 7.1 surround sound system). It looks and sounds GREAT! This TV has every input I needed and more.


    Setting this TV up was a breeze. It found my Internet connection with no problem, the menus to set up the devices, adjust the picture, give each input a name that you choose, and other functions, are easy and for the most part clear. I mounted the TV temporarily on its stand which was very sturdy. I later mounted the TV on a standard, VESA-compliant wall mount (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001LL5JDA/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00), and it fit with no problems and works great.


    The remote is small and reasonably comfortable to use. The keyboard on the back of the remote is a terrific feature and makes input of alpha characters simple matter (numeric characters are input using the number keys on the front of the remote). This becomes a really big convenience when using Internet applications that require a login or have search functions. It is 10X faster than the old-fashioned method of picking letters off of an alpha chart one at a time to enter information. It has good range and works well. It’s easy to access menus and change inputs.


    The 47 inch screen is a good size for a medium-sized room. The TV has a fairly narrow bezel except at the bottom, and is not distracting. Overall its thin and light for TV this size. I’ve not found any dead pixels. The picture is sharp and clear and the color reproduction is good. I wish the depth of the black color was a deeper and more solid black, but overall, I am satisfied with the screen and color reproduction. There are number of color presets such as “vivid”, “movie”, “baseball”, etc., which make it pretty easy to find a color reproduction scheme that most people will enjoy.


    This is the first TV that I’ve ever seen 3-D on. So I don’t have anything to compare it to. But I think 3-D movies from my 3D capable Blu-ray player (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00752R4PK/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00) look absolutely awesome on it. Vizio provides four sets of 3D glasses with the TV (some other companies force you to buy extra 3-D glasses). The TV recognized the 3-D output from the DVD player automatically and made it simple to watch 3-D movies- and they look great on this TV.

    The “Soap Opera” Effect controversy:

    Some reviewers complained that they cannot turn-off the video smoothing that causes the “soap opera” effect. There is a menu item to switch “Game Mode” on or off on the TV within the setting for each input (TV, DVD, Game, etc.) which controls the “soap opera” effect. So it CAN…

    Pleased with the quality. Great Value., November 23, 2012
    This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KDE 47-inch 1080p 120Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    I recently purchased this LED after comparing several other models. I simply couldn’t justify the additional expense of the higher priced LG, Panasonic or Samsung LED models. It was not a mistake. The picture out of the box is amazing and the set up was quick and easy. The colors are vivid and everything from my streaming media to football games are crisp and clear. I was most surprised by the quality of the 3D. I watched both Avatar and The Lorax and it was a truly enjoyable experience! The trim around the display is thin enough that it doesn’t distract from the display like my previous Samsung. I have not noticed any inconsistancies in the display. I found the keyboard side of the remote helpful but the buttons on the primary side are quite small and close together. Internet setup was a snap since the set immediately found and connected wirelessly to my network. I will say, like several other users, I too have experienced a problem accessing Netflix that support was unable to resolve. All of the other services including Amazon Instant Prime have worked without fail. So with the exception of Netflix, which I hope Vizio will address soon, I am pleased with the VIA smart apps. Excellent picture quality, great features and easy set up makes this a good choice for viewers looking to get the best value without going over budget!

    Update 11/27/12

    With the help of other reviewers, I think I have found the problem with the “game mode” setting. I use an over the air antenna for my HD channels. Game mode does not appear to be available when the input source is set to “TV”. I was unable to locate that setting until I connected my WD Live box via HDMI. When I have that HDMI input source selected I am able to turn game mode on. So I guess as long as you have cable or a game console, or are watching via any of the HDMI inputs you can eliminate the soap opera effect. If anyone has their Input Source set to TV under settings and has “game mode” as an option please leave me a comment because I’m still looking to resolve that issue.

    There is definately some confusion with the Netflix issue. It appears there are different versions of firmware as well as the actual software version of the widget itself that are causing the problems. I don’t know of a way to pull a Vizio firmware update on this set so again, if anyone does please leave a comment. (Mine is 2.37.9) Even after reinstalling my Netflix widget (2.1.4), the version is still older than the version the Yahoo store is listing(v3.1.4) which is another oddity. In any case, while I am able to activate and see my Netflix queue, my selections will not make it past the “loading” point erroring out with “We’re having trouble playing this title…etc”.

    There are a number of things that can impact how a reviewer rates a product. I personally find reviews can serve more than one purpose in that new users can often help each other out. Rather than suggesting others “read their manual” or “learn how to use their product” maybe reviewers who have successfully overcome these obstacles can help shed some light. I would really welcome a comment from a user that can confirm they have Netflix up and running under firmware 2.37.9 on the 47″ “KDE” model.

    A week in, I am still extremely pleased with every other aspect of the TV!

    Update 1/15/2013

    Still very pleased with my TV! Turned it on this morning and received a notice that the firmware had been updated. I can confirm that it appears they have finally resolved the Netflix issues as mine is working flawlessly now. Big thanks to everyone who escalated that problem to Vizio support and stayed on top of it! Prooves they ARE listening!
