Another aspect that makes it a game changer is the bundle of features with WHDMI, Shutter Control, 480 Local Dimming, ETC.. Again, at a price-point that is 1/2 what even smaller sets are with some of the features.
Its the "Model T" of 70" + Flats.
Best in show for me regardless that the show isn't even over because techincally it is, all the announcements have already been made. Now it's just show and tell.
As far as i'm concerned, Vizio just wacked all the other TV companies in the jaw and knocked their ass out!
I'm also being realistic here, will it be a perfect TV? Hell No, but is anything?
Are the chances high that Panasonic will achieve deeper blacks with their Infinate Black technology and provide a "nicer" (subjective) picture than Vizio....of course.
I'm not claiming that the Vizio will have the nicer image, i'm just screaming with excitement that they announced a freaking 72" 3D LED TV with all those bells and whistles at the price they did!
For me, I firmly believe 3D will require the biggest TV one can afford.
Size truly will matter and it will make a significant difference with the 3D immersion factor.
Vizio....I've never owned you before....I've owned a Hitachi 65" CRT, Samsung 50" and Panasonic 65" Plasmas and Sharp 50" and Sony 52" LCDs (yes, i'm broke and this is my addiction)....but I will own you now.
I really hope they deliver and the HDMI 1.3 issue becomes a non issue and at the end of the day, we all receive one bad ass TV!
Vizio CEO....don't let us down......
****....send me a t-shirt with your company logo on it and I'll proudly wear it for you if you like....just deliver what we crave......Weeeeee
I'm 42 going on 22.....wouldn't want it any other way so says my wife!
