Thats an easy choice for an LED tv........the Sony KDL 55HX750 or the 46inch version which I have. Or you could look at the Sony KDL 55HX850 both are in the high end tier of Sony's tv's and their both 3D capable.

Sony Bravia KDL-55W900A LED/3D TV.
Sony BDP S6200 3D Blu ray Player.
Sony 5.2-Channel 4K A/V HD Receiver - STRDH540.
Center Channel Speaker: Tivoli Signature Series.
Tower Speakers: Sony SS-MF315's.
Surrounds: Pioneer Satellite Speakers.

If you care about 3D, then the LG 7600 is the easy choice... I preferrer Passive over Active. Plus you don't have to recharge the damn glasses.

If you care about 3D get an active display, an easy choice. It will be sharper, higher resolution.

If you care to not get headaches, see flickering, and have tons of crosstalk... then get Passive over Active 3D

It's far better, and is why the Movie theaters use it.

Also, the constant on/off of the shutter glasses with the left and right eye on Active 3D sets cuts into the clarity/resolution, and hampers the quality of the image to be no better than Passive 3D

When is the last time you've looked at an active display? They do improve each year. Are you just buying the LG propaganda bull to make your evaluation? The three problems you mention are no longer issues. Passive has crosstalk if you're not centered vertically on the image. Outside of the glasses movie theater 3D has little in common with the passive FPR process that reduces resolution. The constant on/off you mention happens 60 times a second. That is way faster than the 24 times a second a movie image refreshes. People, unless they read and buy the LG bull, would not realize it's happening.

People who bring up those points about active 3D have not viewed new units. My new Samsung is nothing short of amazing when it comes to viewing 3D content.

OP - do yourself a favor and properly demo whatever you are considering. I'd recommend putting a ES7100 into your lineup based on your requirements - that's what we just purchased a few months ago and we're extremely pleased with it.

Wrong... LG is rated one of the very best in 3D for a reason. Shutter glasses still cause more headaches than the far lighter Passive glasses.
