what 3d tv to buy

SO sadly im sure we all know 3d tv is dying.... but i really like 3d. To me this opens my door to look at any of the 2016 HDR sets that LG has out. I currently have a 55" LG and its just to small and is very glossy horrible blacks and glare. It does ok 3d but really for our home its just to small. we sit about 10-12 feet from the tv and when i wall mount it shortly it will be a foot further.

The debate i'm having is should i go with the

OLED65C6P 65" oled $2300

75UH8500 75" ips $ $2149

86UH9500 86" IPS $ 4600

IM assuming the picture quality is the best on the OLED, but i really feel like my room is better served with a 75" or greater size tv. Would you sacrifice the quality of and go with the larger screen size?

Should i just wait and give up the 3d? wait on a 75" oled thats affordible.

I can spend about 5k on the tv so getting the 77"oled is not possible.

Closest store near me with either of the LG ips's in stock is more than 6 hours away so i cant go look at them I also really feel like im not going to be wow'd much by 65"

doesent feel like id notice its even any bigger.

First, this is your last chance to get a 3D TV, so you'll have to go for a 2016 model. I say the bigger the better, but only if you can set back enough to avoid crosstalk. The OLEDs are very contrasty luscious looking, but the screen(to me) is like the plasmas of years gone and very reflective to room light, especially behind you. I saw a demo in BB and thought I'd go nuts with the reflections. The IPS screens are more subdued, but less contrast and have light leakage on pure black images that show bright white objects. Also some odd noise. That seems to go away during more use. I really like my passive 60" LG. The 3D is outstanding with none of the headache issues that shutterglasses cause. I think the 86" will be overwhelming, and a lot of the IPS screen issues will be much more apparent. Just my 2 cents. I think waiting and giving up on 3D is a mistake you'll regret.

Yeah, if you want it and don't have it, now's the time. I'm trying to decide if I should snag one to replace my older 1080p 3D now new or just wait and pick one up used on Craigslist. There's been a stream of them popping up now for cheap.

This line intentionally left blank.

I've been seeing some 4K 3Ds on Craigslist too.

Do any of the Chinese brands make 3D TVs?

I think LeEco is trying to come to the US, and they are a pretty big company. They are supposedly a high end Chinese brand.

i can recommend the OLED65C6P 65" oled as i recently picked it up to upgrade my 3d 1080p while it was still available. The 3d is pretty sharp and clear on it. 65 inches was the right size for my theater room.

2300 seems like a good price for it. Is that local?

If I were in your position, I would be considering the 86UH9500 for the immersion factor a large screen would provide. However, my main concern would then be the potential for ghosting/cross-talk with 3D content. You may be ok sitting 12' back - you just have to be mindful of how high you mount the TV.

thanks for the tips guys.

I believe i'm going with the 86". I have space that i can move further away for the duration of the 3d movies if i have to. I plan to mount it so that when sitting eye liveel would sit about 1/3 the height of the tv. I'll also be much happer with the 86" screen for viewing none 3d moves for sure.

I may wind up with the 75" but i really think the fact that the 86" has a true 10 bit HDR panel is a good feature.

My current display is a 3d tv as well but it's just 55" is to small

If you want to risk it. You can wait because the 2017 models will be coming out soon, so the 2016 models will be closed out. May be able to upgrade to a large screen OLED because it was a 2016 model....

Even if the TV "is good" it does not mean that it's good for 3D. You have to run the tests on the particular TV you'd like to buy. Otherwise you might be disappointed. Please, read:
3D 4K tests
before making any decision.

If you want a 3D display you will need to buy a 2016 model, all manufacturers have stopped making 3D displays as of the 2017 model year.

I've also been on the market for a 3D TV and I'm very tempted to buy the OLED 65", and I'm disapointed to hear that 3D is being dropped. But recently hear of the upcoming Optoma UHD60 projector, it is 4K and supposed to have 3D for less than $3K, and I wonder if Panasonic will replace their current 3D 1080P projector with a 4K 3D, I've seen the price of their 1080P projector dropped, anyone knows?.

;)

I'm in the same boat as many of you. I have at least 20 3D blu rays and I really don't want to give them up. I'm looking to upgrade from my Samsung plasma 3D TV, so OLED is probably the only upgrade I'd consider because of the deep blacks. Just need to see if they'll drop in price soon, $2300 is a bit too rich for me.

What about the Sony Z9D 75" LED ? It has the size and I believe it has 3-D. Can anyone comment about the 3-D quality? I know for certain that it it one (if not thee ) brightest screens made.

Well in all truth if you miss out this time, you can always google search for a model later on. (You just have to make sure you trust the site.) It's possible they may even be a brand new, unopened model (if you don't wait too long). Though the TV I bought online was very used, I found an old Sony CRT on craigslist last year in which I use for the original NES, so I can use the Zapper and eventually R.O.B. the Robot.

IMO there's only one 3D TV to buy and that's the 65" E6 LG OLED! I have two of them and I only use them for 3D -- I convert 2D to 3D using the on board conversion and before you get your knickers all in a knot here's how to get some great 2D to 3D conversion. Go to the manual settings for 3D and set to depth to +15 and point-of-view to -8 (that's right minus 8) and you'll have a 3D image that's like looking through a window! 3D BD is also as good as it gets for 3D because its bright and 99% cross-talk free with contrast as good as it gets.

I have 9 3D projectors and none compare for 3D to the OLED (some are pretty good like the 2016 JVCs).

If I could get my hands a 77" G6 I'd buy one but unfortunately where I live LG didn't offer this one for sale.
