The 32' VIZIO E3D320VX is a great TV for the price that it is set for. For those who are Vizio aficionados, this TV does not fail to amaze. To those new to Vizio tv sets, I think you will be in for a great treat. I'm not fully "techy"...just a man who loves electronics, so you will not see anything as far as exact specs or anything. Just a review from an everyday guy....lets get to it.
The first things I wanted to try out was the 3D mode and also the internet apps. The 3D mode is great...for the most part, 3D movies and 3D video games automatically set the TV into 3D mode when you select them. To me, 3D movies are pretty cool, and has a lot a potential. I just watched Tron 3D, Final Destination 3D, and Immortals in 3D...and I was blown away. Vizio does a great job with vivid colors and great detail. Watching the movies in HD on the E3D320VX is already great, 3D is just icing on the cake. There are 3 different modes you can chose from on 3D mode on the TV itself, but I honestly don't know the differences, but once I find out, I'll edit this.
Internet apps....ahhhhh....I was so excited to go to my mancave and play with my new toy. I must say however, I was disappointed to not be able to connect my TV to my internet. I was disappointed that Vizio's webpage for support didn't have any troubleshooting steps for this, but through trial and error, I was able to resolve the issue. Hopefully my fix will help someone out that comes across this. I have owned the TV for 3 days now, and just now figured out how to connect to the internet. For starters, the E3D320VX uses 802.11n WiFi technology, which is currently the highest tech used right now. My router uses 802.11/b tech. Which is good, but not great for connectivity. Some may even use the older 802.11/g. My biggest headache came from the fact that I use WEP-PSK encryption. For some reason, my TV wouldn't connect when I used this. I allowed my router to be open just for my tv to connect, then I put the encryption back on, and put in my security key. Suprisingly, this worked and I haven't had issues since. I just wish Vizio had a troubleshooting guide included in the box or online that relates to this. But once I was connected, I was very impressed with what Vizio offered.
Vizio has VIA(Vizio Internet Apps), which allow you to use common apps on your TV. The FIRST thing I had to do was go on twitter. Logging on twitter was pretty easy, just beware that there is no built in keyboard on the remote, so you use the On Screen Display for your keypad...can be a little frustrating at times. But once you login, you literally see your Timeline and all the other common features on screen. I find it very cool to be able to tweet from my TV....other apps useful on here are Netflix, Vudu, and Pandora. I will tell you guys a hint. Netflix and Vudu have 3D movies as well....rent them directly to your TV and take advantage of your 3D experience! Your TV comes with 2 pair of 3D glasses as well.
The TV itself is very light in my opinion, considering the size. Anyone of adult age should have no problems picking up/moving this TV set.
Aside from the network connectivity problem, I was very impressed with the E3D320VX. I paid a little over $400 for a TV I honestly would have paid $500-600 with hardly any complaints. I went into Wal Mart expecting a budget tv with a budget price and got a great tv with a budget price.
