Most of the 3D TV's I have seen have a blurry picture when not wearing the glasses. Is there a way to turn off the 3D function to avoid the blurry picture? I also wonder if it will convert my standard cable signal to show up 3D or do I need to purchase 3D movies? I apologize if that last question is uneducated I don't know much about 3D TV's.

  • A. yes, you can opt to have it come on automatically when 3d is detected or choose to turn it off or on at your pleasure.

  • A. Yeah there is an option to turn off the 3d, as well as choose which 3d is best for what you are watching. For watching 3d movies, you will need to purchase 3d movies and a 3d blue ray player. I have some video games I play on xbox and i am able to play them in 3d when changing the settings on the game and on the television. Not sure how it works with your cable company. I know here we have to sign up for many 3d channels, haven't done that. But basically it is just like any other television with a 3d option. I love this television. Lol

  • A. You can turn the 3D on and off. Generally the 3D is automatic. Put in a 3D blueray and it will ask you if you would like to watch it in 3D or not. It's a normal TV, you just have a great new option of 3D. Put on the glasses and your at the movie theater! And yes without the glasses the 3D picture is blurry, just like the theater.

  • A. It does not turn regular cable into 3-D you do have to buy a special DVD player that reads 3D movies. the picture is very clear on regular cable you actually have to turn the 3-D mode on when you are watching a 3-D movie so to answer your question I think that it default it off. I bought top gun and those airplanes were flying right out of the screen it was way cool!! Good luck!

  • A. Without the glasses, of course, the picture is somewhat blurry. You can switch to 2D & only have 3D when watching a movie or prgram in 3D. You must purchase 3D service from your cable company in order to watch anything in 3D. I had to. A standard cable is just that. It's the same as a customer without HBO, Starz, Cinamax etc. can't watch them without a subscription. I am 76 yrs. old and possibly knew less then you but believe me this TV is wonderful.

  • A. Thank you for inquiring about our product. The TV will display in 3D when it is receiving a 3D signal. You would have the option to turn off the 3D to watch in normal 2D if you wish. The TV does not up convert 2D to 3D. It would require a 3D signal to provide a 3D picture. Thanks and have a great day!

  • A. No 3D show can be shown in 3D. Let me explain. It would be like listening to a CD in a VHS player.. it's not the right format. So yes it will mess it up and not display right. this is true for ANY TV, and non 3D show. BUT, your tv is pretty good and switching for you (with a prompt it asks if it's ok to switch to 3D)

  • A. You can switch between them, but ONLY if there's a 3D signal present. This TV doesn't show regular (almost ALL) programming in 3D. You MUST have a 3D source, like a 3D capable BluRay player, or maybe your cable/satellite company broadcasts something in 3D and I don't know they ever do that. So far, I have found very little 3D anything out there. I have two movies in 3D. I can't find hardly any more (worth watching). So yes, it can be switched, and it won't mess up anything. And, it'll look great! Bonus!

  • A. no, it won't mess up shows shown in 2d, its automatically broadcasts in 2d unless u change it to 3d, and the program has to be broadcast in 3d, for the 3d icon to show.

  • A. Thank you for inquiring about our product. The TV does not convert 2D to 3D programming, you do need to have 3D content. When viewing 2D or 3D TV the picture is always crystal clear and brilliant. Thanks again and have a great day.

When I look for TV’s the 4 major aspects I look for are (1) Picture quality/ hz (2) Price (3) Adjustment modes (4) Date of production. In these aspects I did not expect what I got for the price but I was blown away. This TV is everything I expected it to be, from the visuals, to the picture editing, and overall quality, weight, and price of the TV. During my purchasing process I always thoroughly reviewed several TV’s. This made me very skeptical on this one because it was so new “came out Dec 2012” and there were very few reviews. The LED 3d setting equipped with stunning visually could steal the show alone but this TV has so much more to offer. For the mere price I paid and my overall satisfaction, I am pleased and the TV has gone beyond any of my expectation. If I can give any advice, just buy it and eliminate the time spent like I did, you will not be disappointed.

I received this TV and the Blu-Ray player at the same time. It was so easy to hook these up and I was watching 3D TV about 20 minutes later. I haven't received the 5.1 sound system yet, but I asked a question, earlier, about what hooks into what. I find that my BR player and cable box plug into the 5.1 and then I only have one cable from the 5.1 to the TV. I am so glad to know this. I am technologically challenged. I am so very happy with this system. I am really impressed with the 3D and how things just come into the room. My cable company, Charter, does not provide programming in 3D, but in the On Demand area, they offer quite a few 3D movies. Most of them are that animated stuff, though. Will be glad when production companies start broadcasting TV programs in 3D. The only things that I would improve on are: Sound quality isn't theatre surround sound. Also, the screen is not glare proof. Has a bad reflection of the outdoors. Buy this! You will love it!

I once thought Vizio were 'cheap Wal-Mart brand' t.v's. I have seen some in the store and the picture quality never really amazed me. I now think otherwise. I recently bought a Vizio 42" 3d smart TV. It is AMAZINGLY CRYSTAL CLEAR!! It has great quality, the 3D has an auto feature so you never have to decide which 3D style your movie was made in (three i think all together). The input for this t.v is abundant, including a USB port. The best part of the buy was when I realized that the TV was about 300$ cheaper then another brand thats 'far better' then everyone else. If your looking for great value, great performance and an overall great TV, this is the one. I have had it for about 3 weeks and have had ZERO problems with it. Also, I have heard from other owners anytime you have a problem with the TVs, (if it happens) VIZIO is one of the best to deal with, as they are very customer oriented!

A great, full feature, TV. The picture, 2D and 3D is excellent and the sound is good. I am surprised by people who critique its speakers. You will never get theatre type sound from a TV. I love the fact that it is passive 3D and you can get glasses for about $10. I have 6 pairs of glasses. The setup was straightforward and my WIFI was connected in minutes. It is a great TV, especially at $518, which is what I paid. What I did not like is this TV comes with a one sided remote. I definitely prefer the dual sided remote with keyboard that comes with other Vizio models. I also discovered the Skype app which is highly advertised on the box, only works if you buy Vizio's Skype Webcam. The problem is, it is unavailable on the Vizio website and 2 different representatives could not tell me if or when the webcam would be in stock again. Vizio should either push an update to allow their TV to work with other cameras or make their camera more available. I did find a few on Ebay and Amazon for S150.00 and up. It was on Vizio's site for 74.99 but again it is listed as unavailable.

I have seen them all. My family members have every 2000$ to 3000$ top of the line 3D TV's there are. I personally bought Sony in the past however not wanting to spend the wad of cash I decided to go Vizio who according to JD Power and Assoc are the Gold standard in Flat screen TV's. You will not be disappointed with this TV it is a fireball. The color and clarity are only matched by the unbelievable 3D and the audio is superb. I was stunned to hear how great the volume was on a 3.5" wide LED TV. The only thing I can say is for 500$ you feel like you just received a 1200$ TV.

Very nice TV for the money. It's best to purchase a Vizio two-sided remote with Qwerty key board if you want to use the internet apps. It sure makes the search much faster. The Vizio Qwerty remote is avail on Amazon for $13 and works with this set

Probably could have spent more but other than a faster refresh rate and larger display there would not have been much more for the extra bucks spent: this unit's 120 Hz refresh rate is certainly fast enough for a 42 inch screen and a larger display would not have fit in the space I wanted the unit to go. Could have gotten more PC like features perhaps but I intend to use my PC and Laptop for browsing the internet - the features in this Visio let me stream movies and other videos with relative ease - connecting to the network was as easy as connecting any new (or visiting) device - no problems - if I wanted this to be a browser for the internet I could have spent more and gotten a unit compatible with any standard keyboard and mouse - I certainly wouldn't want a huge 42 inch touch screen because over time the screen would be degraded through repeated touching - touchscreen use is kind of like eating dinner with just your fingers rather than using a knife and fork - thats all OK for the Boy Scout like mobile devices. 3D is pretty darned good too. No problem with the FEDEX shipping to my rural area (was worried). If you are looking for a great HDTV at a very competitive price get one of these Visio models.

The tv works great! The 3d looks great. Sometimes it doesn't notice my play station for some reason though and you have to play ith play station settings for the 3d to work. Overall I love it! It was definitely well worth the price. Oh and many reviews mention poor sound on flat panels. I think the sound is just fine the way it is, it's exactly what I wanted. :)

I was looking for an upgrade to my 27" CRT television. I knew what I wanted. This Smart television MORE than met my requirements. WalMart and Sam's had it @ the same price (well, that figures since both places ARE the same company, however I don't have a Sam's membership). Definitely would recommend the 120hz for an LED. No ghosting on football or racing. Plenty big for 8-10' viewing distance. Controls on remote are fairly easy, though channel number buttons may seem a bit small. I like the YouTube and NetFlix features already built in. Those worked fine for me on the first pass. The YouTube search feature is a little daunting (think original V1.0 NetFlix Search feature and you know what I mean). Seems to limit the quantity of YouTube searches, but I think I'll find a work-around with that. Nice TV though. Had to order it online. WalMart kept me notified all along the way. People @ WalMart were very nice and accommodating. This TV, IMHO, really rates close to 5-Stars.
