Vizio 42 Inch Theater 3d TV Review: E3D420VX model
Hey everyone, awhile back I said I was looking into getting a 3d TV. Well I did eventually purchase one and I bought the Vizio 42 inch Theater 3D television set. The model name for it is E3D420VX. Is it any good? The short answer is yes it is, but you have to read why I think it is good in order to know weather or not it would also be a good choice for yourself.
One of the pros of this 3d tv is that it produces a passive 3d image, so it needs passive glasses. Bassically these glasses have a special type of lense on each eye that filters out different types of light. One image is seen by the left eye and the other by the right. This is so that both eyes see different images at different angles and it therefore produces the desired 3d effect. These glasses are lightweight and cheap. They aren’t expensive like the active shutter glasses and i haven’t experienced any headaches.
3d Blu Ray Image
The 3d image produced is very good although it isn’t as a high resolution as a normal blu ray image. The 3d resolution is 1920×540 I believe. Do you notice the difference? Not really especially if you are watching a good 3d movie.
HDTV Blu Ray image
The image produced for normal HD and Blu Ray movies is stunning as well. Keep in mind that it produces these images at 1920×1080 resolution when not in 3d mode, so you don’t have to worry about degradation in quality if you only watch non 3d movies. You could very well buy this tv and not use the 3d at all and still be happy with the normal blu ray picture it produces.
In conclusion I would say that it is by far the best TV I’ve ever had. I am so glad I went 3d and trust me, it is definitely worth it. The cost for the Vizio 42 inch Theater 3d tv is low and the passive 3d glasses are cheap.
