Vizio used to be a name that wasn't worth talking about on a home theater site except to call it the best of the budget sets. The company has really turned around over the last few years, and they've become a force to be reckoned with. The new M-Series Theater 3D televisions are the latest to come out of the company, and the impact that they have on the industry overall should be interesting to see. Not only are they affordable 3D TVs, but they use passive 3D so users don't have to shell out for expensive glasses or worry about compatibility.
All of Vizio's new M-Series TVs pack 802.11n Wi-Fi so you can connect to Netflix, Hulu, Pandora or even social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. They're edge lit with LEDs and boast, of course, a 1080p resolution. Pricing starts at $1,039 for the 42 inch model and goes up to $1,649 for the 55 inch. A 65 inch version will be coming in January of 2012 with a suggested price of $2,099.
