Anybody have any new info on the new Vizio sets due out in Aug 2011 the M3D420SR Passive set is what I got my eye on. Debating on that or the Vizio 42 Passive set at Wal Mart or the LG 47lw5600. Saw the LG at BB 3d looked great but can't see a demo of 3d of the Vizio set WalMart or Sams have no set ups available in 3d that is.

Toshiba 32,42,47,55tl515u sets are available now at Walmart and everywhere. They also have 2D to 3D conversion unlike the Vizios. Makes a difference.

I was also looking for these new Vizio models. The cheap passive glasses are attractive to me, and each set comes free with 4 glasses.

According to http://www.hdtv-news.com/vizio/m-ser...60sr-m3d550sr/ they were officially announced yesterday.

Following the link above it says that the 3D tech used just won an award, so that should offer you some help.

They are available on Amazon, so hopefully we'll hear from others soon

I LOVE the passive 3D... I'm very anxious to see how these look compared to the LG 55LW5600.

I'm also very interested in what sort of input lag these models have. If someone could do an average input lag test with a copy of rack band or something, that would be great!

What's the difference between the new M-Series passive 3DTVs and Vizio's existing passive 3DTVs?

Edge lit LED and 240 hz are the main differences between the M and the E series. I have the E series 47" and the input lag for gaming has been fine in Game Mode.

M3D650SV is almost half the price of XVT3D650SV, and it is 240hz instead of 120hz. Man, how price tanks.

I was at Costco (South Orlando) today. They have the M3D550SR for $1350. I was not able to see much. They were playing a loop and it was not in 3D.

that's odd, the smaller size ones are 240hz, and they also have higher contrast ratio. Maybe the M3D650SV is a updated version of XVT3D650SV instead of being a larger version of the other models.

Very odd, I wanted this tv but there is barely any information net. I also wonder if 120 Hz will be a factor. I have 240 Hz 3d Toshiba. Would I really be able to tell?
