As mentioned somewhere else buried in another thread....


Edge lit 120Hz and a really high price. Also, Polarized glasses. Upside is you can buy glasses for all the kids in the neighborhood for the cost of a single pair of actives. Downside is your 2D content is 120Hz.

The Grand disappointment is that this is a Razor model and not a TRULED. I bought the 32" version of the Razor and it proved to be a huge disappointment with its supposed one million to one CR was simply false and while the PQ was OK it could not match my 4-5 year old Sharps and far inferior to my Sony Z and Samsung C6400.


Great to have a Big Boy Panel on the block from Vizio but I was certain they'd be placing this in the TruLED format not the Razor.


Hopefully, it's glass is different from the 32" Razor I bought and if this were a ten bit panel it seems it would have a higher color count also. I can't believe they didn't build the 65" with Universally Highly Rated TruLED!

I can see where the marketing people would recommend an edge-lit panel in the 65 inch size. Many of these are going to have to pass a spousal approval test, and the thinner edge-lit panel gets higher marks on appearance.


Vizio is not that interested in the hobbiest market. They are a high volume lower profit margin brand. You want 65 inch back-lit, get that Samsung 65 inch model 8000.

It actually is not that thin or light compared to the Samsung 65" at 79.8 lbs and 1.2" thick whereas the Vizio is 2.5" thick and weighs about 130 lbs.


Samsung gets the WAF and mobility factor with it's thinness and lightweight spec's and if the blacks are anything like the Razor 32" I owned the Samsung will blow it away easily but admittedly the retail price point for general consumers with lower budgets may grab the Vizio and that's their market segment gravy anyways.


Anyone finicky about black levels like members on this forum simply won't tolerate the crappy gray bars instead of black bars and credits I saw on the 32" Razor as it had that old HAZY LCD Look that Samsung, Sony, Sharp, LG and Vizio TRuLED have pretty much done away with. BTW I'm not anti Vizio at all as I was set to buy this were it the TRuLED version and I got burned on the 32" Razor that members here should audition before committing to buy as the Razor PQ IMO doesn't come all that close to the new TruLED that's getting rave reviews.

are you planning on return it for this?

Yea,,, my timing was great,,, the day I took delivery of my new Panasonic 65" plasma Vizio puts their 65 incher up on the website,,,,, after I been waiting for almost a year to see what larger than 55" LCD I would be wanting to get it goes up on their website hours after I get the plasma,,,,, I was just sitting in front of my pc monitor saying WTF !!!!!!


As far as returning the plasma to get the Vizio,, at this moment thats not the plan,, who knows when the Vizio will actually come out,,, could be in Jan or in 8 months,,, I asked Vizio yesterday for a release date and all they would say is "sometime in 2011".

One thing thats interesting is how fast this thread is growing (how many views it has had),,,, whats interesting about the speed of this thread growth is there are some AVS members that claim there is not much interest or a market for a bigger screen size LCD,,,, yet with every thread started that mentions a larger screen size that thread grows faster than most other threads.


Geeze,, I wonder why that is ????

More than likely it means there are search engines and click happy kids following links from Engadget, but I suppose some obsessed people are curious about 65" LCD panels.

Full HD 3D = No


I'll bet it's quarter resolution in 3D (1/2 x 1/2).

Is it possible that they are cheating somehow? I would expect a passive 3D system like this would involve some sort of active polarizer on the screen, but is it possible they are using a passive polarizing layer such that every other line is oppositely polarized?

The 32" Razor does not have any local dimming and on their site the 65" spec says there are 32 zones of local dimming and so this must be an improvement over the 32".

Ahhh,, so your saying the main reason this thread is growing is because of a mention of AVS in an artical on Engadget which is causing click happy kids to come here,,,,, and the remaining views this page gets is only from people that have OCD and are only "curious" about 65" LCD panels,,,,,,,,,, well heck,,, that explains it !!!!


And the other large screen size LCD threads I mentioned that grow very quickly,,,, also because of "bored click happy kids" that arent being watched by their mommies ?
