There has been a big push by manufacturers with 3DTVs, which so far hasn’t really captured as many consumers that the companies would have liked. There has even been some turning their backs on 3D when going to the movies in favor of 2D versions. But that hasn’t put TV companies off who continue to bring out new products, and a Sony game developer loves the new Vizio 65-inch 3D Razor LED HDTV.
A Sony game developer has tested all of the 3D TVs that are currently on the market, and has said the new Vizio is the one to get. According to John Gaudiosi of GamerLive.TV the new Sony TV uses passive 3D technology so you can use the same 3D glasses that are used in the movie theater.
The new Sony set has Edge Lit Razor LED backlighting that has Smart Dimming. It also features a 120Hz refresh rate and is 1080p full HD. High definition surround sound with SRS TruSurround HD and SRS TruVolume are also included.
It is also well featured when it comes to connecting to the internet as it has built-in dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth universal remote comes with a slide out QWERTY keypad and access to VIZIO Internet applications. The 65-inch Vizio has support for a good selection of 3D formats including gaming, Blu-ray, cable, satellite, and broadcast.
You get four sets of glasses with the set, and visually it was found to be a good set when watching hit movies such as Avatar. A selection of games including Call of Duty: Black Ops were tested with good results. With games that were specifically built for 3D really show off the technology. Playing Motorstorm and jumping over rooftops gave the reviewer a sense of vertigo.
Turning off the 3D feature still left HD content or Blu-rays giving lifelike visuals, and the large screen provided clear pictures. Like many new TVs coming to the market the Sony has an Apps network, allowing users to watch videos or check Facebook amongst other useful things. The built in Wi-Fi automatically connects to a home network allowing instant access to the internet.
Below you can see a video with the co-founder of the company talking about the new Vizio TV from Sony. The set may be well received by some but for $3,500 potential owners would be expecting plenty for their money.
Would you pay $3,500 for a TV?
