The 3D XVT lineup is currently available online through Amazon, Target and Sam’s Club with wider availability expected by December. The 42-inch set is priced at $1,399, the 47-inch at $1,799, the 55-inch set can be yours for a cool $2,399.

Vizio also announced the release of a pair of 3D compatible Blu-ray players to compliment its 3D HDTV offerings. The Blu-ray players promise to deliver “breathtaking” 2D and 3D video as well as Wi-Fi support to enable streaming through online sites like Netflix and Vudu. The players are priced at $189.99.  Not to leave consumers without a complete package, Vizio has also announced a new Wi-Fi router ($99.99) as well as some fancy HDMI cables ($59.99) to see you on your merry way to 3D HDTV land. Don’t forget those 3D shutter glasses!
