Vizio 65-inch XVT3D650SV ships to stores

In a last-minute unveiling, Vizio today said it was shipping its largest ever 3D-capable TV, the XVT3D650SV. The 65-inch set quietly previewed earlier aims to reach a relative bargain by using passive 3D glasses instead of active shutters. Although not as advanced, they don't produce the same flicker-based eyestrain, don't use batteries, and are cheap enough that Vizio can pack four pairs in the box.

As a regular TV, the new XVT model is LED-backlit and has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, although its 1080p panel's 120Hz refresh rate is relatively average and will run at normal speed with 3D content. Vizio is counting on built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and Internet app support to draw attention, including Netflix and Vudu, and supplies five HDMI ports to attach a large amount of modern home theater hardware.

The set should be available before the end of the month at Vizio's online store as well as Costco and Sam's Club. Its website currently lists the XVT3D650SV as costing $3,700, though the official launch should see it at $3,500 when in stock.
