The TV is easy to set up, and the remote has a rubberized alphanumeric keyboard on the back side, making data entry easy. The two supplied 3D glasses are of the passive, polarized variety, with the premium one contoured and the basic one flat. (However you might want to liberate a pair of Real D 3D glasses from the movie theater if you wear glasses. Both of these bend in at the temples to hug your face. The Real D 3D glasses accommodate glasses better.)
The 3D and 2D pictures are both great as is the TV off-air picture using a Terk HD digital antenna here in the NYC area. The 3D (using a Panasonic... Read more
The first I had heard about FPR passive glasses based devices was about a year ago. They were said to be the next best thing but being a geek who has been burned before I was initially skeptical that the 3D effect would be very good. I was certain there will be sacrifices in image quality for 2D however I was actually very surprised by the image quality (both 2D and 3D) on this television. The device simply can not be beat in terms of image quality and features at this low price (Similarly capable LG TVs (albeit with 240 Hz and some extra bells and whistles) cost more than twice as...

The internet connectivity and available apps is really nice. If you are a Netflix or Hulu+ user, this will be extremely convenient. There is plenty of apps for sports updates too.
3D is a really nice touch to the TV. I've tried a few things in 3D and can say that you really will get a solid 3D experience from this TV. However you can't be sitting anywhere you want to. The manual comes with a diagram of "optimal 3D viewing". From certain side angles you won't get the 3D viewing.
The only major issue I've had with this TV is when using a PS3 to play... Read more
VIZIO’s 42-inch E3D420VX delivers an immersive 3D experience, Internet-connected entertainment with built-in Wi-Fi, playback of music and images from USB devices, and solid audio/video performance for a price that might surprise you.
Affordable, Internet-Connected 3D HDTV
Immersive Theater 3D
Bring that intense 3D movie experience home with VIZIO’s polarized Theater 3D. You’ll enjoy the same crystal-clear, flicker-free 3D you get in the theater, with similar lightweight glasses that are comfortable and significantly more affordable than the heavier, powered active shutter 3D glasses used with other systems. Two free pairs of glasses are included, so you can launch your Theater 3D experience right out of the box.
2D content is stunning as well. 1080p Full HD resolution and a striking 200,000 to 1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio render every image with amazing clarity, color and contrast, while an ultra-quick 120Hz refresh rate provides smooth, super-sharp viewing for fast-action sports and movies.
VIA (VIZIO Internet Apps)
Easily connect to the Internet and stream movies and TV shows, listen to music and get the latest news, sports and weather. The latest VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA) platform delivers a large array of web-based content directly to your living room, without the need for a PC or set-top box. Or a network cable, for that matter: connect wirelessly with built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi. Enjoy streaming video from Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, VUDU, and Hulu Plus; social networking from Facebook and Twitter; a variety of music from Rhapsody and Pandora; the latest NBA action from NBA Game Time; and a wealth of other content at the touch of a button.
Optimal Viewing in Any Light
No matter your lighting arrangement, you’ll always have the best picture possible thanks to built-in ambient light sensing technology. The E3D420VX automatically adjusts backlight levels based on its surroundings to optimize levels. The result is a balanced picture that will never appear washed out or too bright.
Superior Surround Sound
This HDTV also delivers advanced audio, thanks to SRS technologies. SRS TruVolume limits volume inconsistencies between programming, saving you from those incredibly loud commercials or smoothing out that action film so you don’t wake the neighbors. SRS TruSurroundHD delivers an immersive surround sound experience marked by clearer dialogue, and more precise bass and high frequency signals.
3 HDMI Ports
Three HDMI ports accommodate your home theater setup, Blu-ray Player, and HD cable or satellite TV, to deliver Full HD and 3D entertainment from multiple sources.
USB Media Player
The E3D420VX features two USB ports, allowing you to connect a thumb drive to your TV loaded with music or photos. MP3 format music is supported (with display of album art and other ID3 tag info), along with JPG images. Here’s your chance for a fullscreen slideshow of that family vacation.
VIZIO’s ECO HD label means this HDTV exceeds the current ENERGY STAR Guidelines, saving you money on your utility bills while limiting your carbon footprint.
