Vizio M3D650SV 3D LED-LCD TV Settings


Keep in mind that unit-to-unit variations, viewing environment, source, and screen (in the case of front projectors) might render the settings I used less than optimum on some samples of this display. On the other hand, some parameters should be set to the same values presented here regardless of these factors. In the following list, the parameters that can be set with confidence to the specified values have no asterisk.

Parameters flagged with a single asterisk are likely to require different settings than mine. I encourage you to acquire a display-setup disc such as Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics on Blu-ray or any of the several setup DVDs available and use it to set these controls yourself.

Parameters flagged with a double asterisk are also likely to require different settings than mine, but they should be adjusted only by a qualified technician with the skill and equipment to do the job correctly.

Thanks to Joel Silver, president of the Imaging Science Foundation, for suggesting that I identify the picture controls in this manner.

I am amazed at the leaps that Vizio is making with there TV's. If they ever get the bezel of the TV down to a reasonable size and there warranty complaints/issues fixed I think they maybe able to compete with some of the bigger name brands.

I heard that some Vizio TV's are throwaways. Can it be serviced?

So i returned my slightly defective M3d550sr for this already looks much better than the 55...with much better picture uniformity and pretty much no edge bleed, local dimming also appears much better with less blooming. The only fault I'm seeing so far is some motion blur, much better than the XVT650 but still there. It looks like when you leave an phone in your car when its cold and the screen has a bit of blur or after images when you looks kind of like that. Hopefully I get used to it...this set was a beast to set up by myself.
