I have a Samsung 3D TV but I'm not watching anything in 3D anymore....
i think my eyes are not good enough for 3D maybe...
3D glasses are annoying and when it starts blinking, it gives me a headache.
Hopefully, OLED can prove to be different. Lets see for sure when they start showing up as displays in retailers.

If you have both time and money I would wait for LGs passive 55" oled that should be hitting stores Q3 2012 but its going to be the same price as the very high end models now.

LG dates
by Ewilde / January 31, 2012 2:15 PM PST

LG posted the information during CES its from the company it self. They did not give any firm dates just 2012 Q3. I did read in a news article that they are prepared to make 48,000 of them a month.

LG and Direct TV

In reply to: 3D TV

I bought an LG with passive 3D two months ago. You use the same kind of polaroid glasses as you do in a theater. I and 2 of my grandchildren went to see Puss n' Boots and kept the theater glasses. We brought them to my house to see if they would work with the LG TV 3D programs. Direct TV has five 3D stations at the moment and we watched several programs. All 3 of us loved it, and I am 73 years old and have had no headaches since I started watching it. I have to wear glasses with prisms in them to adjust my regular sight. I just wear the three D glasses in front of them.

In reply to: LG and Direct TV

I also have LG 3D Cinema TV and I'm happy about it.
It has a wide viewing angle so that I can watch 3D even layin down.
Only negative thing tho is I get too many popcorn crumbs in my couch. Sad

I've also never had any problem

In reply to: LG and Direct TV

I've also never had any problem when I watched movies in 3D with LG Cinema 3D. There used to be a lack of content when I first got it but LG came through with a couple firmware updates that added some nice apps for their smart TV.

Panasonic VT30
by kydna / January 20, 2012 9:14 PM PST
In reply to: 3D TV

I have the Panasonic Viera VT30. LOVE it! Have had no problems watching 3D on it besides the dearth of 3D DVD's. The colors are impeccable, the blacks are black. Somewhat pricey, but worth it. Also look at the ST30. Haven't viewed one, but is a little less expensive than the VT30... and yes, bigger is better when it comes to a 3D set. I own the 55", sit about 10-12ft. away from it, which makes for a pretty immersive experience.

I guess LG and Panasonic have a good 3D screen. I have a LG LW6500 myself and I'm very happy with it.

active 3D
by pinkzroxor / March 12, 2012 11:03 AM PDT

Your mom must be talking about active 3D.. not the kind my eyes are fit for
The three major TV brands that use active 3D are Samsung, Sony, and Panasonic. So if you're against active 3D, I would avoid those three brands..
LG and Vizio uses passive 3D. My first experience with passive 3D was LG 55LW6500 and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
I have a friend who owns a Vizio 3D TV that invites me over to watch a 3D movie sometimes and I must say the 3D wasn't as good and there was a lot of light bleeding on the vizio.

I would recommend.

I would recommend the LG LW6500. Its a great TV. If you have cash to spend, I suggest looking into the OLED TVs by LG and Samsung. They look splendid.

Recommendation

Yeah I second this, you will need more just a few extra dollars for and OLED but that picture is going to be so nice! I am a fan of the passive 3D though and that will be on either of those sets.

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> thanks dude. I just looked through the web site, and I found that $55 is what I have to add to my $780 in order to get the LW5600. Are wall mount brackets included? It doesn't say on the site. And how is the picture quality like compare to other brands like Sammy?

As good
by robert1tech / February 21, 2012 11:00 AM PST

Better

to spare you a super long story sammy edge lit TVs have a lot of problems with color burn and flicker (not even the 3D ind) from the start just read any number of forums or posts here.

Stick with the LW5600 but you can probably get a LW6500 on sale.

Choosing a 3D TV must be easy if you like Fruit Ninja

Choosing a 3D TV must be easy if you like Fruit Ninja. The famous game for our iPhone/iPad/Xbox Kinect can also be enjoyed on our LG 3D TVs. The difference is of course it's in 3D so check this video out. A Fruit Ninja Girl gets a good workout with LG's 3D Gesture Cam Game

Wait till the launch of OLED TV
by derrickscottie / July 1, 2012 7:11 PM PDT
In reply to: 3D TV

You should wait a few months for the OLED TVs to come out. Both LG and Samsung are about to release one very soon. I myself can't wait for the release. I'm personally leaning more on LG's though.
