For $3,500 you'll never have to worry about recharging your glasses again.
There are plenty of reasons people give for not wanting 3D and the glasses complaint is a big one. "Why can't I just use the glasses I got when I saw Toy Story?" they ask. The incompatibility between different sets is a problem too. For technology to be adapted, it should really just work.
Vizio's new set offers a new option. Rather than having to deal with active glasses, the XVT3D650SV will let you use the same passive glasses you get from the movie theater. That means adding a few extra pairs of glasses is as cheap as it gets.
The XVT3D650SV is an edge lit TV with 32 zones for smart-dimming. It also boasts a controller with a QWERTY remote for navigating Vizio's online apps and built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi so you won't have to connect cords.
Vizio's new TV will be available in Costco and Sam's Club later this month at an MSRP of $3,499.
