Frankly after a few Vizio deaths in the family we'll let them keep them and nod to the LG.
I've been in the market for a new tv now for about a month. After doing tons of research, I've come down to the LW5600/6500 (depending on price) or the Vizio xvt3d474sv.
Positives of the LG:
Great looking picture*
More expensive and at the top of my $1000 budget (probably $150 more then the Vizio on Amazon Warehouse)
Edge Lit which means there can be the flashlight effect on dark scenes.
Only 120 Hz (could go up to the 6500 but that adds $50 or so from Amazon Warehouse)
More Apps including Pandora
Full Array LED (should decrease any issues with flashlight effect in corners)
480Hz refresh rate
Cheaper (around $900 new)
Thicker (probably not an issue since it won't be on the wall)
Active 3D glasses are far more expensive (However I can get two free sets now through Amazon).
Brand reliability is unknown.
Can anyone please post their thoughts between the two TVs. Thank you so much for the help!
