Both sets look pretty good straight on, but the Vizio looks much better at angles compared to the LG. For the record there does appear to be a 2D to 3D conversion feature on the Vizio. Didn't really seem to do much for me so either I didn't set up correctly or the effect is really subtle.
Overall, I would the Vizio provides a slightly better experience, but I can't tell whether it's because of the screen size or the TV itself.
You missed on the sale for the exact LG TV you were looking for if you're near a Microcenter. It was their Memorial Day sale and the TVs they advertised to be on sale were all sold out really quickly so they subbed in the 55" 7400 series for $1000
Unequivocally, the Vizio M55 model is definitely the way to go if the price difference is that much right now.
The Vizio does not do 2d to 3d conversion. You can push the 3D button, and select 1 of the 4 choices, and it really doesn't matter which you chose, with the glasses on you get frames that are completely out of sync, and no where near 3D. It's not a feature listed on any of the models.
Many pages back we discovered we could push the 3D button on regular content after a firmware upgrade-but, it never converted anything-just made it into a blurry mess. I even tried just crossing my eye's, to see if I could align the image to see any depth-nope, no 2D to 3D. I've tried horizontal(O/U), SBS, and Sensio-no conversion.
So, if 2D to 3D conversion is important to someone, the Vizio is not the TV for you. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong-but is there ANY passive 3D TV out there with the FPR techology that does this?? The only TV's I have seen that do this, are Active 3D.Screw size for TV wall mount
; I looked up the screws we used for the @home Wallmount
I'm using in the bedroom, and they are M6X12. These are too short for the 60" TV(worked fine for the M501), so you will most likely need M6X14, plus a washer. Remember, you only want the screw to go into the TV about 3 turns-no more than that. You can put the screw into the back of the TV, and turn it by hand until it stops-count the number of turns and remember that. Because-if you go one turn to many-you will screw into your TV!!!!
So, I'm off to the hardware store to get 3 different lengths of M6 screws/washers/lock washers for when my 60" arrives, to place it on the stand in the living room. I'm pretty sure the M6X14 will work-but, I'm going to do the "screw test" first, to see what the depth of those mounting holes really are, before committing to screwing the mount on. Remember-the M601d is 89lbs!!! And there are only 4 little screws, slightly screwed into plastic(have to really look to see if it's not really a metal insert where you place the mount screws).Edited by havasuvideo - 7/24/13 at 8:15am
