As noted earlier resolution is also reduced. I'm not convinced its a good trade off at this point.
I don't at all disagree that some of the attributes of passive 3d like cheap glasses and reduced flicker are attractive.
Passive will have a place when we get UHD passive 3D LCD panels that will allow full 1080p resolution. Until then people will be watching 3D blueray content with significantly reduced resolution.
Feedback on the Prototype displayed in NY earlier this summer attested to this shortcoming. The panel has a standard 450 Nits brightness and it seems edge lit would have a challenge covering 65" space like it's TRuLED can.
Seeing how this is a standard edge lit razor with less than impressive spec's it appears to be overpriced at $3699 MSRP - they need to step up with TRuLED to be worthy of that MSRP IMO as the 32" Vizio I owned had pretty much the same specs as this panel excluding the 3D and it was truly disappointing as it failed to live up to Vizio's hype and it's listed specs - hopefully for new owners the 65" can prove me wrong as that's a lot of money for a panel that is just OK or greatly inferior to my Samsung C6400 and my Sharp/Sony panels much older than it.
