Stay away from sammy? Why? Never had a problem. My two previous sammys were 5 and 3 years old respectively.

I'm thinking more like 10 years. What happened to them eventually?

@NNN2004, is it passive 3D?

I sold them both and bought two new samsungs a few weeks ago.

the 55D8000 for gaming and my TV/Movie room

and a very very cheap (but still excellent) 51inch plasma (which also has 3d) for the family room.



I'm not really here!


@ tolu619 )

no, the Panasonics are active 3D sets

Plasma works well with active 3D, as they are faster in changing colors (=less cross talk/ghosting in 3D mode). Afaik there currently are no passive 3D plasmas on the market.



You guys knew I was going to chime in here right... :)

3D on any current TV's is severely limited. Below are the problems...

1. HDMI 1.4 TV's do not support gaming at 1080p per eye in 3D. They will do 1080p for bluray (24 hz) and 720p for gaming (60 hz) only. This isn't a big problem for console 3D as consoles can't even do 720p in 3D, but for PC gaming it is quite a problem.

2. LED, LCD, and Plasma active shutter 3D TVs suffer from ghosting/image crosstalk. This is when left eye sees a part of the image from the right one. It shows up like a slight halo around the image... Below is a diagram of current TVs showing levels of crosstalk.

Only DLP based 3D TVs and projectors do not have any crosstalk.

3. Passive displays show 3D at 1/2 the panel resolution. 1920x540 amount of lines is used to deliver the image to each eye. If that image is sub 720p...frankly it looks like crap.

My advice for 3D if you plan on gaming on it lot - get an HDMI 1.4 enabled 720p 3D DLP projector and a good 2D TV for other purposes.

Reason 1 - no ghosting crosstalk in 3D
Reason 2 - big screen and lack of resolution can be hidden very well with DLP tech
Reason 3 - native resolution is 720p, 3D gaming resolution is 720p. 1:1 pixel to pixel mapping to displays native resolution always produces the best image.
Reason 4 - price. projector, mount and good screen for under 1000 bucks.

My advice. Don't buy one. My family bought a Philips SmartTV a few months ago. For about a week we watched exclusively 3D programmes and movies, but haven't watched any since.

And active glasses are really your best bet at the moment. Passive will be cheaper and easier to use, but as already mentioned your resolution will be lower. It looks ok, but only really justifiable if you have a lot of guests over regularly. It's more of the kind of thing you see at exhibitions, where lots of people will be watching.



As my Mrs isn't interested in 3D at all, i have high hopes for those new Sony 3D headsets, just hope there not too expensive and review well in terms of being comfortable, as you have a completely separate screen per eye presumably there is no ghosting or crosstalk effects whatsoever. I bet they feel alot more immersive than any TV or projector as well, although eye strain might be more of an issue.



OK, I think I've concluded to chill out on 3D for now. Maybe we'll use a projector as dissolitude said.............since I'm not getting a 3D TV anymore, let's assume I'm getting one 52 inch TV and two TVs around 40 inches. What would your list look like? I'm thinking
1. Panasonic Vierra
2. Samsung UA55D8000
3. Something LG maybe?
