How did you get it at such a good price?
What's the difference between 1090p and 1080i?
Did 3d glasses come with it
and congratulations!

you mean 1080p   :P

1080p is 1920x1080  (full)

1080i is  720p/1920x720 up-scaled to 1080p/1920x1080

The tv is a refurbished model

And yes it comes with 2 Glasses  ;D

NEVER  get anything from a site called ecost.com

This is maybe the WORST online store i have ever "Tried" to buy something from.


Side note... I may not get my Tv  :-\

lol 1080i i stands for interlaced which means that the pictures on screen are filtered horizontally, however 1080p, the better of the two, stands for progressive, progressive filters not only horizontally, but vertically as well.
I think I am developing an asian fetish.

Vizio makes pretty good tv's for really cheap. The only thing I've seen really horrible about them is the speakers go to s**t after about 3-4 months. But of course I have a 42 inch Samsung LED backlight tv and it's speakers went to s**t at about 6 months. Just another reason to use the 1800watt surround.

I was just wondering because it was pending forever and being able to see your post and not comment/like them was annoying lol
