"For 24 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us − those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what's possible in the future," said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. "The Best of What's New Award is the magazine's top honor, and the 100 winners − chosen from among thousands of entrants − represent the highest level of achievement in their fields."

Inherent in the M-Series 42", 46", 55" and 65" Edge Lit Razor LED LCD Theater 3D HDTVs, VIZIO Theater 3D technology boasts a brighter picture when compared to conventional 3D enabled units.  The result is crystal-clear, flicker-free 3D, complete with a wider horizontal viewing angle and improved fast motion pictures.  These attributes make the M-Series line perfect for watching HD or 3D content, bringing families together and providing viewers with stunning picture quality just in time for holiday gatherings.

M-Series Theater 3D HDTVs also utilize lightweight, battery-free glasses that work in most 3D theaters.  The sleek VIZIO 3D eyewear is popular among Theater 3D viewers as it eliminates the discomfort felt by some and the high cost of active shutter glasses, common objections voiced by many 3D home theater viewers.  With the affordable VIZIO Theater 3D glasses, families can host 3D gaming parties, 3D movie nights, 3D sports viewing get-togethers and other events, easily accommodating all viewers with comfortable and stylish 3D eyewear.

"From broadcast sporting events to streaming movies, VIZIO is truly making 3D content accessible for every family," said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Technology Officer. "The M-Series incorporates the very latest Theater 3D technologies and the recent recognition from Popular Science only validates our efforts to provide customers with great technology at an exceptional value."

In addition to a superb 3D picture, all M-Series units include VIZIO Internet Apps® (V.I.A.) technology and built-in 802.11n WiFi, giving users the convenience of on-demand movies, TV shows, social networks, music and photos, on their HDTV. By using the premium Bluetooth QWERTY remote to navigate the connected platform, the user's experience is further enhanced as VIZIO's web-based content is available at the touch of a button.  Services such as Amazon Instant Video, Blockbuster on Demand, Facebook®, Fandango®, Flickr®, Hulu Plus™, Netflix, Pandora®, Rhapsody®, Twitter™ and VUDU®, can all be accessed through the V.I.A. platform on the Edge Lit Razor Theater 3D HDTVs, providing families with the ultimate entertainment hub.

The V.I.A platform and the stunning quality of the Theater 3D picture of the M-Series is matched by the latest high performance SRS audio technologies. SRS technologies deliver an immersive, virtual, high definition surround sound through StudioSound™ HD - the ultimate all-in-one audio experience, designed specifically for flat panel HDTVs. StudioSound HD delivers remarkably crisp and clear dialog, rich bass and consistent, spike-free volume levels.

The M-Series Edge Lit Razor LED LCD Theater 3D HDTV is currently available in three different sizes. The 42" M3D420SR has an SRP of $1,039.99, the 46" M3D460SR has an SRP of $1,259.99 and the 55" M3D550SR has an SRP of $1,649.99.
