Vizio M3D470KD


This year I've seen plenty of LED-based LCD TVs with disappointing picture quality, but the Vizio M3D0KD series isn't one of them. It boasts black levels and color accuracy that surpass competitors costing hundreds more, making it one of the elite...

The Vizio M3D0KD produces some of the deepest black levels and most accurate color of any LED TV this year, and does it for a bargain price. Its passive TV was brighter than many active sets and virtually crosstalk-free. The Smart TV suite has plenty...

Variable black levels, blooming, and lackluster video processing hurt the Vizio's picture quality to some extent. Its passive 3D showed occasional artifacts and moving lines. The TV's design is ho-hum.

Very good picture quality and an extremely aggressive price make the Vizio M3D0KD one of the best LED TV values on the market.

Vizio M3D470KD Review – 47-inch LED HDTV


With this model from Vizio, the next gen 3D experience is brought to the table. The Vizio 47” Class features engaging HDTV experience with better and brighter images. Delivering smooth and ultra-sharp streaming, there is more that a viewer can expect...

Coming under $1000, the Vizio M3D470KD competes with the likes of Toshiba 42TL515U,Toshiba 47TL515U Samsung UN46ES7550 and Samsung UN46ES6580. Rumored to arrive on the latter half of this year, there are huge expectations from this product.

"By far one of the worst TV's I've owned"


All in all I wouldn't recommend this TV to anyone. Perhaps I got a bad model, but I wouldn't be willing to take the risk with getting another one. While the 3D is good, it doesn't make up for the flaws with the LED picture. Stay far away from this TV.

The only good thing about this TV was it's 3D performance. No flicker or double imaging.

This Tv's deserves to be scrapped. The performance is absolutely terrible. The blooming when using smart dimming does more bad than good. And the light leak from the Edge-Lit makes it impossible to watch anything that has blacks or has night scenes.

"Full Function LCD-LED with 3D"


Vizio builds a feature packed TV at a value price point. All in all I am very happy with this TV. I saved at least $400 over the cost of a major brad TV with the same feature set.

Purchased this at a club warehouse. Price was excellent for a feature rich TV that just came out. Where can you get a 47" LED-LCD Internet Ready TV with 3D for less than $900. The 3D worked well with the HBO 3D offerings on Comcast.

Sometimes there is a delay when switching between stations.
