Vizio XVT3D650SV 3D HDTV doesn’t require active-shutter glasses

Vizio XVT3D650SV 3D HDTV

At 65 inches, the Vizio XVT3D650SV 3D HDTV is the largest TV Vizio has ever released. Vizio is also calling its Theater 3D technology the best out there:

Theater 3D is up to 50% brighter, has one half of the visual crosstalk distortion, handles fast action motion without blurring images, has a wider horizontal viewing angle and has none of the annoying flickering of Active Shutter 3D that may cause eye strain.

If that doesn't have you sold, then you'll be pleased to know that the TV comes with four pairs of 3D glasses for an entire family, as well as built-in dual-band Wi-Fi and Vizio Apps such as Amazon Video On Demand, Netflix, and Vudu. 

Look for it this month at Costco, Sam’s Club, and online for a steep $3,499.99.

Netflix streaming hits VIZIO Connected HDTV [UPDATED]

Vizio Connected HDTV Netflix is launching a new platform that they’re calling “Conneced HDTV,” and with it comes confirmation of the second direct-to-TV partnership. VIZIO’s Connected HDTV platform is designed to compliment traditional television viewing. You just connect the television to your home network, and if there’s nothing good on, you can go into Netflix, and I am sure there will be other services (YouTube? Hulu?) that you’ll be able to pull up as well. This is a trend we are definitely liking, let’s eliminate set-top boxes while providing more viewing options for the consumer.

EDIT: Okay, we just got more details on this. Aside from Netflix, the VIZIO Connected HDTV platform also brings Amazon Video on Demand, Pandora, Flickr, Blockbuster OnDemand, Rhapsody, Adobe Flash content, games from Accedo Broadband, and the Yahoo! widget engine. Very, very interesting!
