Active Shutter 3D televisions can get very expensive, and it certainly holds true for the 65 inch Theater 3D Razor XVT3D650SV LED, which also happens to be VIZIO’s biggest screen. But the new Theater 3D technology allows for the use of polarized glasses, similar to those found in movie theaters for 3D projections, and teamed up with the 3D razor they accomplish the same effect as more expensive electronic glasses.
In fact, VIZIO’s press release claims that their Theater 3D technology gives brighter and flicker free images, and not prone to dimming, the way Active Shutter TVs are. The simpler display technology also means no need for recharging the glasses – of which four will come bundled with the set, and VIZIO is planning on offering others in multiple styles.
VIZIO also included their range of Internet Apps, and SRS TruSurround integrated speakers to round out the features of this $3,499 120HZ edge lit LED LCD. That’s right, $3,499 starting sometime later this month, and it will be available at Sam’s Club and Costco, as well as online.
