After looking for a replacement for our CRT TV, I stumbled upon the Sanyo 42" 2D-3D, internet ready, with Wi-fi LCD TV. I also found the Vizio 3D for $150 more than the $ 449 online price of the Sanyo. I was quite hesitant to say the least, because I felt getting a quality TV at this price, with all the features offered by Sanyo didn't seem possible. Certainly so, when this was less than a comparable LCD with hardly any of the added features. I decided to buy with the thought of returning it if I wasn't satisfied. Well it will not be going back.
This is a great TV, with exceptional picture quality in both 2D and 3D, and the 3D is passive (meaning no expensive shutter glasses). Sound is very good, even for someone with two hearing aids. Internet hookup was a breeze, and painless. I decided to purchase a Sony 40" Soundbar from Sam's for $88. and a LG BD670 Wireless Blu Ray Player for playing movies. This system is paired with a DirecTV HD-DVR, and works flawlessly. With the USB, or my Laptop, I can display pictures, and also stream content. The autoscan for both Analog and Digital antenna reception works like a charm, and is quite sensitive.
I highly suggest if you are looking for a new Smart TV, that is loaded with the latest features, don't pass this one up. For the low cost you will not get anything better. In fact, I don't believe you can find better unless you are willing to part with $750 or more. I also own a Sony 46" LCD flatscreen that I was quite impressed with. The Sanyo does a lot more, for much less money.
If it matters to anyone, I am a 62 year old technology nut, that appreciates nice things which work great. Each of these entertainment pieces described in this article are worth considering, if you happen to be in the market for them. They work very well and are pretty much plug and play, unless you are like me, and want to experiment with different hookups. Oh the technology..........
