Last year I picked up a 40" Sony HX800 for my first 3D experience. While I have enjoyed some of my 3D experience, my wife has complaints about the heavy Active glasses, and I find them a little irritating as well. They tend to make my brow sweat, the ones we have are NOT rechargeable so require new batteries fairly often, and the things are just plain uncomfortable overall - and that's not even mentioning the cost of the dang things.
I also had a hard limit on the SIZE of the TV due to an existing entertainment center. Well, we're buying a new house, and that old entertainment center is now scrapped. I've tried searching on a few sites, but they don't seem to have the attribution in place to easily differentiate between active and passive sets. I don't have any particular brand loyalty, and it doesn't need to be gigantic, but something 50" or more would be nice. Any recommendations?
