Vizio's New Razor 21:9 LEDs

Europe had the stunning Philips' 21:9 TVs, and now America is getting some 21:9 wonders with Vizio's Razor LEDs sometime this year, in 3D 50 and 58-inch options. Will we see something similar in Oz? Please?

Both sets have resolutions of 2560 x 1080, with the 50-inch XVT3D500CM having a 240Hz refresh rate, smart dimming, internet apps, a Bluetooth QWERTY remote control, and SRS surround sound HD. The 58-inch XVT3D580CM is similar, only with a 120Hz refresh rate. They're both sliding into Vizio's theatre 3D series of TVs, which have internet apps and all come with QWERTY remotes. Unfortunately, only two sets will come with Google TV functionality (or "Via Plus," as Vizio is calling it), the XVT3D476SV and XVT3D556SV.

Considering Vizio's standing, you can expect these to be a lot cheaper than the $6,500 Philips commands for its latest 3D set in Europe.

As for Australia, there's a good shot at the Vizio gear whereas Philips gave up on the AU market some years ago. So keep watch on this space for 2011![Vizio via PRNewswire]
