1) Well, if you leave aside the much-argued-about questions of vertical resolution and image fusion, passive (FPR) has a lot to offer. Yes, the black matrix mask is thicker (you gotta get pretty close up to see it), and it's prone to jaggies and moire when displaying sharp horizontal lines. But there's no crosstalk essentially if you don't get too far above or below the display. No ghosting or flicker, off-angle 3D is good, nice bright 3D. RealD glasses from the theater work just fine.
2) Again, no ghosting, see above.
3) That's a toughie. I dunno if you can get a passive 3D display that size, yet. Maybe think about a projector and a FPR screen.
4) Yeah, nice cheap, featherweight circularly polarized glasses. Same as RealD.
5) Another toughie given the size you're hankering for. AFAIK
, passive is not offered in any plasma, and I get the impression it never will. I was originally looking for a 3D plasma, but wanted passive 3D, so I had to choose between them.
I have a 65" LG 65LW6500, got it in February. Yes, it's an edge-lit LED/LCD, and yes, it has some minor flashlighting and uneveness in the backlighting. It's not something I can discern when watching a Blu-Ray, 2D or 3D. I only see it when changing source input. One thing about it, it's plenty bright (as opposed to my plasma), and putting on the 3D glasses is like putting on very lightly-shaded sunglasses. The picture quality, both 2D and 3D, is IMO quite good. I don't regret my purchase one little bit.
