Watch The Avengers Blu-ray on Vizio 70″ M-Series 3D Smart LED HDTV in 16:9 display

Diana Joan

Sep 04, 2014 03:57 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray, TV

I bought my very first 3D TV The M701d a week ago at Costco. It is the second largest LED TV in the M series for 2013/2014. The 2D picture looks great and it also has a very nice deep rich 3D quality picture. But right away I noticed some cross talking on the bottom part of the screen when I watched John Carter and The Hobbit, mostly when there was subtitling. I saw it really bad when watching Wreck-It Ralph last night. Depending on the depth of the 3D image, the cross talking is extremely noticeable on the bottom half of the screen. Watching a 16:9 movie, like The Avengers, is almost unbearable. It is a movie in Blu-ray disc.

As many Blu-ray players don’t support 3D playback, you may choose 3D Smart LED HDTV like Vizio 70″ M-Series to watch 2D/3D Blu-ray movies keeping 3D effect like me...
