72"! - VIZIO Launches NEW XVT Pro™ Series - Page 2

I think the announcement of the 72" at said price is just about as surprising as when Vizio announced the 551 a year ago! I suppose they wanted to top the shock this year! Fun stuff!

I had a 5020 at the start of all my HDTV troubles, aside from the awesome blacks, it isn't that impressive. (loud buzz, dim whites, smudges all over the screen)

I am very interested in where vizio is going with their sets, I had a 2008 32inch in my house for a week a while back and I was very impressed with it and how it stacked up to my Panasonic. The Vizio was a gift for my little bro but it did leave an impression on me.

(I've also had several Samsung LCDs and they were nice, but man the lag killed them.)

Curious though the article reads that the 55 inch model will only have 120 zones of local dimming while the 47 inch model will have 160 zones of local dimming

did anybody notice that XpanD 3D kit with 2 glasses cost $699? That is a little bit too steep in order to enjoy 3D on this TV.

At 72", this is a prime competitor to Smaller Format Front Projection.. amazing

Looks like this was just added to Vizio's website,,,,, http://www.vizio.com/news/VIZIOLaunc...DTVTechnology/ .

wonder why vizio and panasonic doesn't use realD like sony and samsung. RealD doesn't require expensive and complicated shutter glasses.

I think it is a little bit expensive, it would go down in the next month or so..

Can't wait to see one of these, and hopefully get some tested specs from a trusted reviewer as well...

Yeah, I was waiting for Panasonic also but this set got my attention. I'll have to weigh this out and make a decision when all the cards are on the table.

Wow- TV's are getting close to front projector territory. Front Projection companies better hurry up with LED bulbs and more robust LCD panels or they will be a thing of the past.

"In the bathroom," that was a good one. I Can't wait for some hands on, first looks from some of the show goers. Bluetooth for the 3D glasses is cool as the site lines will remain uninterrupted. I've only had a RPHDVT and a bit 40 inch tube 1080i CRT so I have a question. Is there anything implemented in these new Vizio sets that will get rid of off angle viewing problems?

Holy Crap! Am I dreaming? 72" at $3.5K? Hell Ya - been waiting for this size forever.

OK, let us change our shorts and try and figure out who they are getting this glass from since they don't manufacture their own. This most likely means we'll see other 72" panels but unlikely in this price range.

I notice they'll also have a 58" ultra wide 21/9 screen which I thought Philips was producing for Europe and so perhaps it's Philips or else Sharp is dividing that Saiki glass to accomodate the 72" also since it can be done the same as the 60" cuts and simply producing fewer panels - but the math makes it doable if they can be profitable, 60" < is so 2009 .

CES 2010 is going to be huge and finally LCD's can enter True HT Sizes that won't break your budget!

Is the Zone Count on the 55" & 47" correct on that link dayvo posted. That has to be a typo.

I agree! I don't care if my image is front projection, rear-projection, direct-view or whatever. I just want a 100" image I can watch with the light out that I can physically fit into my basement and that won't add more than 12 inches of depth to the screen-wall.

I have a 1080p FP now, but I'd actually like an image that wouldn't require the lights off.

My only complaint is the alternating Shutter-glasses for 3D... to expensive. I'd like to see this set with polarized light, but that would probably add to the TV cost (but more than make up for the offset once you intend to buy 4-8 pairs of 3D glasses!)

Is there any concern about it listing HDMI 1.3 rather than it being the upcoming HDMI 1.4?

I agree. But chances are that incorporating polarized light output into the 3D TV would increase it's cost well past the $3.5K. However, if you plan to have 10 pairs of 3-D glasses for your viewing crowd (as you could with a 73 inch TV), that higher TV cost would offset the need to invest in LCD shutter glasses.

I would NOT buy anything, period, without a verifieable HDMI 1.4 connection for real dual-channel 1080p compatibility!

It is not logical that the 55 would have fewer local dimming zones than the 47, however, there is at least one other strange spec. The 58 inch 21 X 9 will only be 120 Hz while the other models in this series are going to be 480 Hz frame rate.

I'm curious if the 21 X 9 would stretch 16 X 9 or just have black bars on the side.

Those would be some huge pillar bars if you have to watch 4:3 in the OAR.

I could see people doing that and thinking they were watching HD.

I love Vizio. For christmas, I just bought my rents a SV421XVT 42" LCD HDTV


Model Features:
o Full HD 1080P
o 240Hz SPS*
o Smooth Motion Technology
o 50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The darn thing is incredible! The 240 Hz really makes a difference with sports and action movies. We love it.

I want the 72".

The 58 inch "Razor" is going to be a true specialty item for hard-core movie watchers. Just when people are getting used to 16:9 screens, comes 21 X 9. With a stretch mode, the geometric distortion is going to be significant.

Until this, I could get the information I needed about screen area from this site:

http://www.cavecreations.com/tv2.cgi

I think I will contact someone about the possibility of adding 21 x 9 to the Calculator.

that tv would be really cool if you can watch 2 channels size by side. Great for sports.

Oh boy, I don't like the sound of this:

"High volume LCD manufacturer Vizio has announced a line that will be available exclusively to specialty and custom electronics dealers."

Why would that be a problem? Plenty of HT gear is sold this way.
