Remember that massively wide Vizio TVs we told you about that debuted at this year’s CES? To be more specific we’re referring to Vizio’s 58-inch 3-D LED CinemaWide display. It boasts a 21:9 aspect ratio, which mimics a movie theater’s aspect ratio. That’s right, 16:9, which is the HDTV standard, is anything but cinema worthy.
Nevertheless, at the time that we told you about this set Vizio hadn’t announced a released date. Now, there is no specific word on the larger of the three, the 71″, but we do know that the 58″ version will hit store shelves sometime in March for, wait for it…$3,499.99 and will include 4 pairs of 3D glasses.
Vizio says that the 50″ and 71″ versions of this set will arrive sometime in the latter half of this year, which will obviously cost less and more, respectively. However, all sets will include Google TV, allowing consumers to surf the web, access Netflix, Pandora and a variety of other online services via the Net.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
