How much would you pay for a 21:9 CinemaWide LCD TV? Or, maybe we should ask: how little would you pay?

The XVT 3D CinemaWide will soon arrive as a 58" beast... Read more...
If you walk into any Walmart and head over to the HDTV section, one of the brands that will jump out at you is Vizio, which has built a reputation for building and selling comparatively affordable TV sets.

VIZIO has become the number one brand for LCD HDTVs in North America, the company said recently.

VIZIO also boasts of being the leading shipper of LED backlit... Read more...
And just like that, all is right in the television world again. Or, at least between two giants in the industry who have been at each other's throats lately.

3D HDTVs are obviously all the rage these days, right along with tablet PCs. The jury is still out on whether there's enough traction for them to truly stick around and make an impact in the grand scheme of things, but there's no question that companies are trying their best to market and promote them. Vizio is no different. The company's... Read more...
Well, it's pretty much official now. 3D is the next big thing in television. Once 1080p become "the norm," we wondered what the next logical step would be. Traditional cable companies can't readily deliver 4k content yet, so upping the resolution on existing sets doesn't make much sense. But with 3D content becoming more readily available...

The primary reason we figure the format still hasn't taken off the way BD backers would like is price. Even years after BD hit the mainstream, the price of admission is still... Read more...
Vizio showed up in style at CES 2009, and we're not just talking about the HDTVs it brought along.
