The Vizio XVT3D650SV is a reasonably priced 65 inch class LCD flat panel HD TV with 3D capability, a nice assortment of features, and four pairs of 3D glasses. The Vizio XVT3D650SV combines full HD 1080p resolution, 1.07 billion colors and dynamically created surround sound with passive 3D viewing for a true theater like experience. Departing from the active shutter 3D viewing, this model uses less expensive theater style glasses so the eye popping 3D experience in home viewing becomes economical for all.
The first of the home panels to offer passive 3D, the Vizio XVT3D650SV presents a theater like 3D viewing experience with the four pairs of included passive 3D glasses. The 3D supports several modes so you can access the broadest number of 3D media available. Whether you are watching in 3D or 2D, your picture is sharper and more vivid with the full HD 1080p resolution. With the Vizio XVT3D650SV HDTV’s ambient lighting and 100,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, the picture automatically adjusts to provide deep blacks and vivid colors with room lighting changes. The 64.5 inch (diagonal) screen runs a 120Hz refresh rate to keep the motion smooth with a 5 millisecond response time.
Unlike other 3D capable HDTV’s, the XVT3D650SV is not capable of converting 2D video elements to 3D. While this is a disappointment, it isn’t a deal breaker. Look at other TVs that offer 2D to 3D conversion to decide if you really need that feature.
Two 15-watt internal speakers at the bottom of the cabinet serve up sharp virtual quality surround sound to accompany your visual experience. The speaker output is enhanced by the SRS TruSurround HD and SRS TruVolume technologies shipped with the Vizio XVT3D650SV. Whether streaming mp3 music or watching the latest movie, the sound system is guaranteed to please as SRS TruVolume levels spikes in the midrange sound over 20 frequencies.
Vizio Internet Apps are provided via the Vizio XVT3D650SV HDTV networking capability. You can connect either the Ethernet cable jack or an internal 802.11n wireless transmitter. With the preinstalled applications for movies, music and television streaming on demand from Internet media providers getting “online” is quick and easy. Social networking gurus have full participation with the Bluetooth connected remote and its slide out QWERTY keyboard. You can even use the Bluetooth connection for pairing wireless headphones as well.
The XVT3D650SV only has a 2.3 inch thickness on the wall. If you use the included stand though the set will be 16 inches deep using the included stand. This set weighs 93 pounds without a stand and 105 pounds with its stand. Moving and mounting this massive 61 inch cabinet will require two people. As with all Vizios in this class you get a 178 degree viewing angle with 2D viewing. For 3D viewing this is reduced somewhat, but the included guide helps with optimum room placement for 3D viewing. When evaluating the style, the cabinet doesn’t have a ‘WOW’ factor. Its matte finish is rather plain and the cabinet is a bit thicker than ultra-thin models like the Samsung PN64D7000. This may be a factor if you plan on spending more time looking at the cabinet than enjoying the movie theatre 3D experience.
People are really sensitive to how their purchase decisions impact the environment as well as their pocketbook. VIZIO’s energy efficient protocol is labeled ECO HD. This practice exceeds the federal ENERGY STAR standards. This means you save money on your energy bills and reduce the impact on the planet. The TV is designed with an LED backlighting that is free of mercury; the display glass does not include arsenic. Even the shipping box is enviro-friendly as it is recycled cardboard with vegetable-based ink print.
The included Bluetooth remote with its slide out QWERTY keyboard makes the full setup go quickly. With on screen instruction and full text capability you can have the Vizio XVT3D650SV ready for 3D viewing and networked to the Internet in about 20 minutes. An included guide helps with setup for the best 3D viewing experience in whatever room you choose. In order to get the Vizio remote to control a DirectTV receiver the receiver must be set to IR (infrared) mode and not RF (radio frequency).
People investing in HDTV with 3D don’t just watch TV. The TV is an extension of the online social experience, part time office tool, and major entertainment center. If you plan on connecting digital components to the set there are multiple connections available. The XVT3D650SV has a larger number of HDMI connections than most sets. Five HDMI with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) inputs are side mounted behind the left edge of the set for your HD capable video components. Above these are three USB ports which are strictly for maintenance at the moment. A future firmware upgrade is promised to bring full multimedia support to these ports. On the back you will also find the RF connecter for local over the air HD TV stations. Standard composite video, component video and stereo inputs, computer connection, Ethernet jack and a digital optical connection are also present.
The Vizio XVT3D650SV LCD HDTV with passive 3D will make a great addition to a home theater setup and will be of interest to those wanting a broader 3D experience with the more affordable glasses. This is a real plus for families. After all, once you get beyond paying for the first pair of 3D glasses the joy of 3D wears thin. With four 3D glasses, Mom and Dad don’t have to give up the 3D experience to the kids. Sharp vivid colors, 3D, an immersive sound system, and Internet apps straight from the box make for an exciting entertainment experience. While retailing for $3,190 at Vizio’s website, you can find retail and Internet store prices for this set as low as $2,200-$2,500. Put on those polarized 3D glasses and get ready to enjoy the Vizio XVT3D650SV’s flicker-free, crystal-clear 3D picture and surround sound from the comfort of home.
