NuVision Lucidium NVU55FX10LS 3D LCD HDTV Review

Price: $6,999 At A Glance: Refined, engaging picture • Compromised LED dynamic edge lighting • 3D resolution not full HD (at press time)

Going Upscale With 3D

Unless you’re a regular reader and recall our review of the Lucidium NVU55FX5LS HDTV (Home Theater, April 2010), you may not have heard of NuVision. The company keeps a relatively low profile in an attempt to build a reputation as a connoisseur brand. It sells primarily through custom installation channels, and all of its products come with a two-year warranty and a two-day on-site, nationwide service program.

But 3D calls, and no self-respecting manufacturer can afford to overlook it. The NVU55FX5LS is determinedly 2D, but the new Lucidium NVU55FX10LS adds 3D to the mix, along with a few new technical wrinkles. As with the Lucidium NVU55FX5LS, the FX10LS comes in three sizes: 40, 46, and 55 inches. We received the 55incher for review.
