    This review is from: VIZIO M3D550KD 55-inch 1080p 240Hz Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)

    Let me start off by giving you some background. I have owned 3 Sony HDTV’s since 2006. The first was a rear projection LCD model that I purchased for about $3800 in mid-2006 and had a design defect with something called the “optic block” that ended up as the subject of a class action lawsuit. Sony extended the warranty for a year because of it. Some people got new flat panel TV’s for free or extreme discounts. Mine was repaired once and by the time it broke again, which was inevitable, It was out of warranty and Sony wouldn’t help me. I have bought Sony all my life and thought that sometime you just get a lemon, so I gave them another chance and in mid-2009 bought a KDL-52V5100 for about $2000. I had nothing but problems right out of the box. The TV’s auto dimming feature would make the screen so dim that it went very dark in movies and video games and you couldn’t see anything in dark scenes, EVEN WITH SMART DIMMING TURNED OFF! Sony sent me a firmware update, which didn’t fix it. Then they sent me a new TV, same problem. It was obviously a software/hardware design issue. They sent me a KDL-52W5100 as a replacement, which was a slight upgrade. I was fairly happy with that TV other than the 8-bit panel which did cause noticeable banding at times. Then, in May of 2012, roughly 3 years old it started exhibiting a picture problem where the whole left side of the screen would turn green and horizontal lines covering the rest of the screen appeared along with a terrible high pitched squealing noise. Sony, of course, refused to help me as this TV only had a 1 year warranty. I found out from a local shop that it needed a new LCD panel for about $1600, which of course meant that my 3 year old TV was now a big door stop. The Sony name used to mean quality, but after spending almost $6000 in roughly 4 years and then having no working TV is ridiculous. I decided I was done with Sony. It’s really too bad. I’ve been buying Sony my whole life.

    Before this I didn’t really consider Vizio because it’s always been a pretty low end brand. I did some research and found the M3D550KD, which had the same features as the $2400 Sony KDL-55HX850 (except for Gorilla Glass). In fact it scored better than the Sony by far in native contrast ratio and black level. A review from PC Magazine gave it 4 out of 5 stars and the editor’s choice award. See review on pcmag.com.

    **After connecting to my WI-FI and turning the TV off for about 10 minutes, when I turned back on it had updated itself to the latest firmware.

    First thing I did was calibrate the TV using Digital Video Essentials HD – DVE HD Basics Blu-ray. The settings I came up with are below.

    User Menu Settings:

    * Picture Modes

    o Picture Mode : Custom
    o Color Temperature : Normal
    o Aspect Ratio : Normal/Wide

    * Picture Settings

    o Backlight : 55
    o Contrast : 50
    o Brightness : 42
    o Color : 55
    o Tint : -1
    o Sharpness : 8

    * Advanced Video

    o Smooth Effect : Off
    o Real Cinema Mode : Smooth
    o Noise Reduction : Off
    o Color Enhancement : Off
    o Adaptive Lumina : Off
    o Film Mode : Auto
    o Smart Dimming : Off
    o Ambient Sensor : Off

    **XBOX360 Users Note: One thing that kind of freaked me out when I first hooked up my XBOX was that if you set resolution to 1080p most of the advanced picture settings disappear from the menu. Not just greyed out/unavailable, the menu actually changes. If you set the TV to the input your XBOX is connected to, bring up the TV settings menu, then power on the XBOX you can actually watch the picture settings menu change! The picture mode (Custom, Standard, Movie, Etc.) in gone, the advanced picture menu is gone and the only options available are Contrast, Brightness, Backlight, Game mode and Ambient Light Sensor. I called Vizio and after finally getting hold of a engineer rather than tech support he verified that it was by design. Apparently the XBOX can communicate with the TV and takes over all these settings. It knows what the TV can and can’t do and takes full advantage of the TV’s capabilities. If I set the resolution to 1080i it didn’t do this. I was a little worried about this at first, but after setting to 1080i and using my tweaked settings I could not make it look nearly as good as the XBOX controlled settings when set to 1080p. The picture was amazing! The PS3 does not exhibit the same behavior when set to 1080p although still looks amazing with my custom settings.

    PROS:

    * Verifiable 10-bit panel, so no banding (most companies are not disclosing anymore).
    * Very complete set of advanced customizable picture settings.
    * Audio was surprisingly better than I expected and better than other LED backlit super thin TV’s I’ve looked at.
    * Excellent color and black level.
    * Bluetooth Remote with built-in QWERTY keyboard.
    * 3D is…

    I wanted to order this from amazon, but they were out of stock, so got it on Costco.com. I was hesitant to get a vizio, but I already spent good money on 60″ Panasonic plasma for our finished basement, so this TV was for the family room. So I figured I would risk the better quality for features, size and price. Now that I have it, I dont feel I risked too much! The picture on this vizio is awesome. It took some time to fiddle with the settings (no suggested calibration on any websites as its a new model). I am shocked at the picture quality, especially after reading all the videophile reviews about plasma vs. led. My Panasonic St30 is awesome, but this picture is nearly the same. To be picky, the contrast/blacks might be slightly better on the panny, but it’s hard to tell. Not only that, my family room where this tv is located has two large windows FACING the tv! I thought the screen was a pure matte, but I would call it a dull semi gloss. A first I was upset and thought it would ruin the daytime viewing experience. My family laughed at me saying, “what are you talking about?”. They see no glare. I see some when shows go to commercial or screen is black.

    Once you find your settings to your liking, the picture, color is exceptional. I don’t quite understand all the talk about judder/motion blur/etc. only thing I’ve seen is the occasional ghosting of a baseball on some throws from outfielder to home plate. But nothing during other parts of game. Watched some football replays on nfl network…no issues..

    Have only used 3d to test it with avatar bluray. Insane picture and really pops. The remote with slide out keyboard is a bonus. Easily synced it with cable box and bluray player. My family loves only using one remote. Sound is so much better than you hear about with new TV’s. I still have it hooked up to receiver and klipsch surround speakers, but rarely used by family so far. SRS surround is actually pretty good at some surround effect sound.

    The apps are good, but a bit sluggish. Won’t use much other than amazon video. Watched African cats on amazon and picture was crazy good. Some pixelation, but mainly due to my crappy Comcast Internet.

    All in all, I highly recommend. And I wont say a good value for budget HDTV. It’s a great deal regardless. Picture will rival much more expensive TV’s. Now only time will tell in regards to longevity.

    Great TV for me, June 20, 2012

    I’ve owned this TV for a month and I love it! Setup was very easy. The built in WIFI works great! The picture is bright and clear. I left everything set the way it was out of the box and we are very happy. Our room has three windows facing the screen and even on the brightest days, I don’t have any problems with glare or the picture not being being enough. We even have light about two feet away from where it’s mounted on the wall. No problem with that either. The sound for a flat pannel TV is pretty good. In fact I haven’t even seriously considered upgrading sound yet. It’s adequate for regular veiwing. The 3D is very cool. I bought Underworld Awakenings with my new 3D Blu Ray player. Again the picture was outstanding and the 3D works very well. The only problem I have is the keyboard on the remote doesn’t always register the keys I push. One out of ten letters will be lost. This is not a problem for me and if I had to have a problem, this is what I would have picked. You simply can’t beat the value with this TV. It has every current feature there is and in my opinion, works very well. I’m very pleased with this purchase.
