Question

What are the best sound settings?

I am a little disappointed in the sound quality so far on the M501d. I know that slim tvs are not expected to be great but I would like to try and improve it. Does anyone have any numbers for what they believe to be the best EQ levels? Thank you

Your best bet is an external sound bar. The speakers are mediocre.

Keep in mind you can set different levels for each input device. I am using the bass boost mode and have maxed out the 2 lowest freg and reduced the 2 highest. Also being flat against and close to a wall seems to help. But I still added one of there 40 inch sound bars with wireless sub to get really good sound.

The Vizio website has specs for shipping box size. Simply search VIzio.com for your desired model number. Since I was not sure the box would fit in my sedan, I opted for (free) home delivery from walmart.com.

The 3d is very good on this TV, especially in bright scenes. Darker scenes not so much. Over all the 3d is very good.

3D quality is good. but as usual the amount of 3D contents are very low in this world. I have tried Killzone 3 and motor Strom Apocalypse. especially Motor Storm is a great 3D game.
For 3D bluray only Avatar did the justice others are just so-called 3D.

Not sure if this will work but worth a try....Try a "Power Reset" Unplug the TV and hold the power button ( on back of TV) for 30 sec. Then replug and check. Also, if you are depending on WiFi you may want to hard wire to your router ( you didn't mention your connection). Everything on mine has worked great except the Scenedreams App. Good Luck! If all else fails, call customer service.... I had a really good experience with them and they fixed/guided me through what was needed.

Question

Heat emitting from TV

I recently purchased this TV and find that it gets hot to the touch on the right facing side of the set. Does anyone else notice this problem? Vizio says it's normal because the power pak is on that side. I have 3 other Vizio's that don't have this issue.
Appreciate a response, so I know whether to exchange this item for another one.
