Vizio’s new 42-inch 3D LCD HDTV uses polarized 3D glasses, passive 3D instead of the active shutter types. This means lighter, much less expensive glasses that need no batteries. Wi-Fi is built in, so there’s no additional hardware to buy to access Netflix, VUDU, Pandora internet radio, Facebook and other social networks and more. Vizio’s “Theater 3D” claims to be twice as bright as normal, making it easy to see in even bright rooms.

The remote is two sided, making it a little complex, yet it has a full QWERTY keyboard to make searching and surfing even easier.
