The America’s Number one LCD HDTV company VIZIO has launched there new model of LED TV Vizio M3D550SR.The Vizio M3D550SR is a solid edge-lit LED TV with excellent black levels.Its another black, rectangular box with a screen in the middle.
The rectangle around the edge is piano-black on the 55-inch model, while the 46-incher is “rose-black,” meaning black with a red tint in direct light. The bottom edge is a little different in that the speakers jut angularly out from the bezel in a not-unattractive way. Being an edge-lit LED, the television is slim, and the swivel stand gives it some flexibility.it is available in 46” 55” and 52 inches.
Meanwhile, the Vizio’s 2D picture quality was very good for the price overall compared with other edge-lit LED TVs, highlighted by deep black levels and well-rendered shadows. I did experience problems with the overactive Smart Dimming system and the TV’s video processing, but they didn’t spoil the positive impression. Vizio’s VIA apps are plentiful, the QWERTY keyboard takes more than a few (beneficial) cues from smartphones, and while the TV’s look is nothing special, its features are among the best available.
Vizio traditionally offers an excellent feature set for the price and the M3D550SR packs them in, with passive 3D being the most prominent. Despite its picture-quality problems, it’s quite likely that passive 3D will become more prevalent next year–people don’t like paying lots of money for 3D glasses and they find cross-talk distracting. The cheap glasses make more sense for consumers who only watch 3D movies on special occasions.
