It's still a little hard to believe that Vizio, America's low-cost TV spokesperson, makes a tablet. But given the popularity of the segment, we suppose we can't really blame them. Now, they're taking additional steps to make sure their slate measures up to the rest of them.  The company has just unveiled a new update for their 8 inch tablet that promises enhanced performance and feature enhancements that are built to optimize the Internet Apps Plus experience. This new update supposedly makes the user interface a bit quicker to get around in, not to mention bolstered graphics performance,... Read more...
Love Hulu? Love your Vizio tablet? You're in for a treat. The company's 8" Tablet just got Hulu Plus support, bringing one of the Web's most popular video viewing services to a tablet that's still struggling to make a dent in the U.S. market. Anyone willing to splurge on the $7.99/month service will now be able to enjoy it on the Vizio Tablet, which can be picked up for just $299. Having Hulu Plus support enough to get this thing into the mainstream mind? Hard to say, but one thing's for sure: a $99 price tag would! Right, HP? VIZIO’s Groundbreaking 8” Tablet Launches Hulu Plus™... Read more...
At last, someone's really pressing Apple when it comes to tablet pricing. Vizio has grown their brand tremendously in recent years by being the low-cost leader in TVs, and is now spreading their wings to other avenues in the consumer electronics universe. The company's new 8" tablet may not have the name-brand recognition that the iPad 2 has, but boy, does it ever have the value. The company just announced that tablet will be shipping nationwide starting today for just $299, placing it well cheaper than even the recently discounted TouchPad. The slate ships with a three-speaker design that... Read more...

Tons of new gear is being introducing during Consumer Electronics Week in NYC. It may be as official, but it's basically Fashion Week, but for gadgets. Vizio is one of the companies on hand to introduce something new, including a fresh Theater 3D technology that's wrapped up in new television models. They showcased their full line, including a new suite of passive 3DTVs. There's the E, M and XVT, in screen sizes ranging from 32 to 65 inches, with 3D tech available across 11 models at a wide variety of pricing levels. The new crew also has Vizio Internet Apps, enabling folks to hop online and download... 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. LG and Vizio have been fighting over patents the past few years, but it looks like they're both resolving to let bygones be bygones in 2011. Vizio just announced that they have signed a settlement agreement together with cross license agreements ending a patent dispute with LG Electronics. If you can remember that far back, these disputes started in 2008. For around three years now, both companies have been bickering about who owns what, and... Read more...
VIZIO announced its new line up of LED TVs with models ranging from 16- to 71-inches. Among the new models are two Cinema HDTV LED models with a 21:9 Cinema aspect ratio, Theater 3D, and VIZIO Internet Apps. Select models in the E and M series and the entire XVT series feature VIZIO Theater 3D, a technology that uses a circular polarized filter to eliminate the need for batteries and shutter mechanisms in Theater 3D eyewear. Theater 3D also claims to be better than conventional "active" 3D systems by boasting of reduced crosstalk, fast motion without blurring, the ability to be up to 2X brighter,... Read more...
And with CES opening its doors in Las Vegas today, in comes the official Vizio news we were waiting for. It was reported last night that Vizio would be entering the tablet market; an odd move for a television maker, but today we've found out that it's true. Vizio is basically turning themselves into a consumer electronics powerhouse today. First TVs, now smartphones and tablets. Watch out! The VIA Phone and VIA Tablet have been launched in earnest today, both a part of the new VIA Plus ecoysystem. That's described as the next generation of Vizio Internet Apps, and we expect that both of those new... Read more...
The Consumer Electronics Show for 2011 hasn't even started yet, but already things are warming up near Las Vegas. While Vizio themselves have yet to make a proper announcement, The Wall Street Journal has published a report that essentially spills the beans on two new major products from America's low-cost TV leader. Vizio has made a name for themselves over the years by producing low-cost televisions that still have high-end features: things like connected apps, 3D, 120Hz, etc. But for some reason, being up top in the television sector isn't enough for Vizio. Now, according to this report, they... Read more...
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 newest 65" 3D HDTV has launched this week, but it's offering something that few other rivals can: passive glasses. All of Sony's 3D HDTVs require "active glasses," which require batteries to operate and are generally more bulky and expensive. Passive glasses are... 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 (ESPN 3D, 3D Blu-ray Discs, etc.), it seems that people are becoming more willing to splurge on a TV that requires 3D glasses. And now, America's first low-cost leader in televisions (Vizio) is following Samsung, Panasonic, Sony and everyone else by introducing... Read more...
When you think VIZIO, you probably think of low-cost televisions at big box retailers. And that is exactly what has made VIZIO one of the fastest growing company's in America. But the newest TV from the company is pretty far from being a "big screen TV." In fact, it's a tiny screen TV. The company's new 7" Edge Lit Razor LED Portable TV is the company's first mini TV, offering an 800x480 resolution. The company says it's perfect for tailgating or hanging on the beach, anywhere that it's difficult to take a full-size TV. It also ships with a portable tuner stick that catches free-to-air ATSC or... Read more...
It's been some time since we've had any new HDTVs from Vizio to consider, but it looks like the company that's fighting it out with Samsung for the #1 spot in America has a few new higher-end models for those back to school apartment shoppers. The company's XVT series is expanding, with the new sets offering Full Array TruLED LCDs designed for deeper blacks and better off-angle viewing, and they also have increased zones of Smart Dimming for greater intelligent control plus the ability to reduce LED brightness to enable pure black. The new models are as follows: XVT553SV (55"), XVT473SV (47") and... Read more...
