So today my friend received their 55 lg. I definitely recommend LG over the Vizio for overall image quality, if price is not a factor. All in all considering though, Vizio is producing a nice passive 3d set, but think of the Vizio as going to a nice theatre that is a bit older and think of the LG as the new theatre that has all the amenities. Either way, you will have a good experience, but if you have the LG, you can have bagging rights. And now that I have seen two types of passive 3d, Im gonna say, passive is much easier on the eyes and overall looks better and LG has made the 3d interface very simple for novice users.
