Great Video

Ah, at last somebody decides to post a 3D gaming comparison.

It seems like the LG beats the Samsung in almost every category. I'm amazed how poorl Samsung's backlighting is : /. I'm not a big fan of games but during the MMO game comparison, the picture quality almost looks as if Samsung's model is behind in terms of resolution. I hope this silences some people complaining about LG's passive 3D TV picture quality.

Active sucks for 3D GAMING

This video is a clear example why you shouldnt get active 3D for gaming. Aside from the obvious, game consoles render 3D faster than what Active 3D TVs current Hz rate is capable of. This results in a HUGE decrease in the number of fps (frames per second). On top of that, shutter glasses need to flicker to produce 3D images so we can safely say the amount of fps the viewer sees is reduced even more. Coupled with motion blur, flickering and crosstalk, this makes active 3D not the preferable TV for personal/competitive gaming. Theres a reason LG is sponsoring many gaming tournaments in Southeast asia with their passive TVs.

Some people will still say with that being said, the fps difference isn't noticeable. But to gamers like myself and lot others, who can tell even when the difference is as little as 10 fps, it hurts the gaming. It would basically be the difference between a headshot and a leg shot IMO.

FPS drainage
by jerye / June 21, 2011 4:09 PM PDT

Gscottt: You couldn't be more right. The fps for some of these TVs is just horrid. I have a Sony 3D TV and the fps rates i get is just unplayable. The games like the one in the video, mario kart and tekken tag require the use of less fps so I dont think the players would mind as much, but for games like COD theres always major lag during the action heavy scenes. That LG model sure has great backlightning there. I wonder if I can get more than 70 fps on COD on that TV.

LG's passive 3D TV won't have consistent blurring issue.

Isn't Samsung's Visuals supposedly superior to LG's?Obviously, that's an old mindset from Samsung's marketing.
LG is definitely a winner in gaming. LG's passive 3D TV won't have sonsistent blurring issue and no image overlapping. It provides a wide viewing angle which you won't be bothered even when you are playing wii. Play wii tennis with active shutters and get ready to pull out your hair supply.
