The Bottom Line The Vizio E3D0VX series has excellent features for the price, including 3D and robust streaming, but its 2D picture quality is a big Achilles' heel. The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling.
