I'm looking for a passive 3D television and I thought I read that LG has "true 1080p" (per eye) passive 3D panels.

Is this true? I've been searching and everything I've found is that 540p (per eye) is the best currently possible.

Also... I've posted over in the LCD forum, but does anybody have any suggestions on a 65" - 70" passive 3D display for under $2,000? Ideally I'd like a 65" for around $1,500 but I'm assuming that budget might only get me "garbage" ...

Look for UltraHD TVs, LG and Sony have them, not sure what sizes are currently available.
However, they are way over $2k.

Are you talking about the 4K TVs? They have passive 3D which is 2k resolution per-eye, right?

Thanks for the information ... I think I've decided on the Vizio 65" for now until 4K prices come down a lot more. (I'd like the Vizio 70" but it's 25% more expensive for only five more inches... argh)

Plus 3840 resolution in the other direction. All the pixels on a horizontal line are used for 3D, so the image has to be scaled for that.
