Riddick Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

riddick_feature_edit

In 2000 I went to see Pitch Black with a few friends and there were only a few people in theater. We all liked the movie and after the movie was over I found myself wondering about the future of the characters that survived. I thought that, being a low-budget science fiction movie, Pitch Black would never have a sequel of any kind. Then in 2004 Universal Studios released The Chronicles of Riddick, a far more expensive movie. Fans of Pitch Black eagerly went to see the sequel.

Fast-forward to 2013 and Riddick, the third film featuring Vin Diesel as the title character, is released. Even though neither Metacritic.com or Rottentomatoes.com gave an overall favorable score to the movie, Riddick is the best reviewed movie of the series.

This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital versions of the Director’s Cut and theatrical version of Riddick. The director’s cut is 8 minutes longer than the theatrical version.

Vizio S3820W Sound Bar Review


Buy
Click To Buy

In little over a decade Vizio has become a well known trusted television brand. After being in the business for five years Vizio became the largest seller of televisions in the United States. Once they became well positioned in the television market Vizio started to expand their line of products. Sound systems were the first new set of products to get started.

The Vizio S3820W Sound Bar is their entry level product. It cost about $100. This is the lowest priced sound bar I have reviewed. How good can it be for $100?

The Vizio S3820W includes:

  • Sound Bar Speaker
  • Remote Control
  • Optical Digital Audio Cable
  • 3.5mm to RCA Audio Cable
  • Wall Mount Brackets
  • Digital Coaxial Cable

Vizio S3820W Design

S3820W_design

The Vizio sound bar has adequate build quality. The backside of the S3820W is a textured plastic that is not cheap but not necessarily high end. The front is nearly all speaker cloth. Along the bottom edge there is a line of silver plastic, and the very bottom edge is a glossy plastic.



Vizio S3820W Wired Connections

There are four ways to send audio to the Vizio S3820W sound bar. The lower quality connections are the RCA and eighth-inch jack. The higher quality connections are the digital coaxial and digital optical.

There is a subwoofer connection if you would like to have a stronger bass experience.

Vizio S3820W Bluetooth

S3820W_bluetooth_sm

The Vizio S3820W includes Bluetooth that allows other Bluetooth devices to transmit sound through the sound bar. Bluetooth has quickly become a required specification. This feature is great for connecting tablets, smart phones, and other devices. Pairing my iPhone and iPad to it was easy. The audio played well from iTunes Radio and the Stitcher podcast app.

Vizio S3820W Sound Quality

When I connected the S3820W to my television using the included optical cable I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. It does the basic job of delivering better sound than my television. Dialogue was crisp and clear. This is a 2.0 sound system, so there is not any real surround sound. It offers Trusurround, which delivers a very limited artificial surround sound. Even without surround sound the audio is well balanced.

The bar is lacking when it comes to bass. Vizio calls their integrated bass system Deep Bass Modules, which gives the impression that it will deliver a decent bass experience. The bass is helpful to your overall movie watching experience, but it is not bone rattling. For good, skin vibrating bass, you will want to use the available subwoofer connection.

According to the included instruction guide, using the digital optical cable will deliver the best sound. The difference in sound quality is not that noticeable because it does not offer true surround sound. The sound quality is a basic improvement over what you will get from your typical television.

Vizio S3820W Remote

S3820W Remote
S3820W Remote

The Vizio S3820W’s included remote is surprisingly well made. It feels really firm in my hand. The back of the remote is made of a smooth but solid plastic and the front is aluminum. The buttons have a similar texture to the back of the remote. This is by far the highest quality remote that I have seen with any sound bar.



Vizio S3820W Value

The Vizio S3820W brings an improved audio experience to your living room. This is one of the lowest priced sound bars available. If you want an affordable improvement over your television’s sound, this is a good choice. The inclusion of Bluetooth adds a convenient way to connect numerous devices directly to the sound bar without hassle. It is currently priced at $100 from Amazon.com.

Most sound bars include one optical cable, but Vizio’s inclusion of four different cables is a nice, no hassle touch.

Vizio S3820W Wrap Up

I have mixed feelings about this sound bar. The price is really affordable, but it does not offer anything special. If you are looking to improve your audio at a bare minimum the Vizio S3820W has you covered, but if you want true surround sound you will need to shop for a better sound bar or sound system.
