Vizio Update: New 3D HDTVs and 3D Blu-Ray player announced

November 19, 2010 by  

With the race for holiday dominance already begun, Vizio isn’t standing pat, it seems. They announced a gaggle of new products today, including a new 3D Blu-Ray player and 3D HDTV models (mega-slick box for one seen here in the picture). Check it out:

Say hello to the new VIZIO XVT 3D series, while the XVT Pro line announced earlier this year (and that 72-inch model we were drooling over) were not to be, these 42-, 47- and 55-inch HDTVs are real and on sale today through Amazon, Sam’s Club and Target’s online shops and should be on shelves later this month. Features like the number of LED backlighting zones (for the 47- and 55-, the 42-inch features edge LED lighting), claimed contrast ratio, WiFi N and VIZIO Internet Apps are consistent with existing models, so the big addition this time around is 480Hz refresh rate and obviously, 3D readiness (active shutter glasses not included). VIZIO’s also announced two new 3D compatible Blu-ray players to match for $189, plus a new router and some high priced HDMI cables to fill out the lineup.

All prices were not announced at the time, but expect value price points if we know Vizio pretty well.
