Updated 29-May-2014

 

I'm trying to compile a list of all 2014 TVs in terms of what they offer for 3D (Passive, Active, none).

 

I'll welcome any information as it trickles in (many of the specifications links on the manufacturers websites are left empty).

 

I'll gladly alter this top post to make room for any information you have (and reformat as a chart with extra notes, like some passive 4K models that might because of their size offer only 540p 3D, like last years XBR-55X900A did).

 

This may be renamed in the future as a generalized compilation, since I'm trying to include links to product sheets and eventual ship dates, but I'd like to focus on 3D for now.

The 79" Sony shows up as passive on their website. I can't post a link from my wife's tablet but l just checked it again and it shows 3D: Passive.

I noticed a problem when I posted it.  Yeah, the spec sheet says passive, but the overview says it includes 2 active glasses.  I remember this kind of typo happening before in the early days of 2013 with their W900A I think it was.  Heck, some of their spec sheets are blank pages, so cut-n-paste issues are going to be likely.

 

It's currently a tossup as to which you believe, but I thought I had read elsewhere that they punted passive for the very top of the line, so I went with that.  Also, the 65" version says active in both places.  Just not sure.  I'm going to modify it though to be "unclear", and check back and see if it changes.  It's entirely within the realm of possibility for the same model #, but different sizes, to have varying specifications, but it's dumb.

Other than Sony, I'm having the hardest time getting any compiled information out of any of the manufacturer sites.  This is likely to take a while.....arg.....

 

I'm >painfully< extracting the panasonic information out model by model....

I sure hope it turns out to be passive. I don't hate the speakers on the 79" but at that size I wish they were re-moveable. I'm glad I got my money back from Sony on a 2013, 65" UHD set. Now I can get me one with a larger screen. So far, looking at this set and the 75" Samsung though that one has active glasses and I don't want to go back to that.

Any ideas of what pricing a 70" 4K passive 3D tv might run? Currently have a 70R550a which is not my favorite TV in the word due to a light blob on the left side.

Hell I'd even take a 70" 1080p passive TV that was backlight or at least had better uniform panel lighting and black levels. Keeping an eye on your list, so far not much but a 70" sony 4K tv. Looks like Samsung doesn't have what I'm looking for in 2014, so Panasonic hasn't announced yet? (I'm kinda hoping there AREN'T any in that range -70", passive 3D, $2000'ish- that way I feel better to just keep what I've got).

Sony KDL-70R550A (passive 3D tv)
Denon x4000 (amazing sound correcting software)
Klipsch RF-62IIs (amazing horns)
Klipsch RC-62II (so clear)
Klipsch RS-41IIs (so full)
SVS PC12-NSD + Klipsch RW12d (so boom)

I keep trying to check in with the other manufacturers, but most of them have no detailed info, and the ones that do have blurbs that don't look anything like a spec sheet.  For instance, I know the mid-high end panasonics are likely 3D, but I can't find word of it anywhere yet.  Things are just trade-show hooey currenty.  Except for Sony: they did a mostly good job of filling out their information.  A couple of gaps.  And one with contradictory information.

 

If you find anything, report it here please----that'll help.

Oh I will. I really like my Panasonic ET5 passive 3D tv and I was hoping they'd do a 70" passive set this year. But it doesn't look like it but I shouldn't be surprised Panny always seems to do the 50, 55, 60, 65 dealio.

As much as people here seem to love the idea of TVs larger than 65", I can't imagine that's a big market.

Added the Sony X950B flagship.  65" & 85", both active.

 

For some reason it took a little while for them to add this one to their site.  At least on the page I was using.

TGM I know you've done a lot of research and you've been big on the whole triluninous display. My quesiton to you is. Are any of these 65" passive 3D Sony's using that tech.

Because I kinda have my eye on the KDL65S990A. Which not only has that tech, but also I think is a beautiful design, and the passive 3D I want. The light blob and uniformity of my R550a is bothering me too much. And I'd rather spend an extra K and be extremely happy with my TV than to keep it and be dissapointed. But just wanted to know if there was anything simular I might want to wait for.

I only half like the idea of triluminos.  Very recently I got a little disappointed when I discovered that the diagram explaining it that I was going with was completely incorrect.  I don't want to get into all of that right now, but the color folks here seem to be impressed with it still, so I'll go with that.  Note: this isn't strictly a PQ uniformity issue with trilum, it's about the color gamut.  It's still an LCD panel.

 

As it turns out, and it's hard to tell, there is some disagreement as to whether or not all of the triluminos panels have switched from QD to LEDs (which frankly is no worry, because LED's also output very tight spectral regions), or if one of the models is still QD.  I'm unimpressed by the current usage of QD.

 

I can't tell from the CNet review whether or not the KDL-65S990A is using the QD version or LED version.  Note: QD itself requires LEDs, so hence my confusion.

 

Wish I could tell you more, but the information is so sporadic this early on.

Thanks buddy. Yeah I have heard opinions that it's about bright colors. To be honest with you I'm more on the side of black levels, screen uniformity, and contrast ratio as you are.

Is there any TV, from any maker. That is 65" and passive. Be it 4K or 2K as you see right now, with black levels and contrast ratio being the utmost important. Could you pick one or is it just too early? I really to be honest with you would rather have a really incredible 65" passive TV over this one, even if it's a $1k more investment. It will be hard to wrap this thing up and return it, but I'm still considering it.

Hey thanks for that.  I'll update top post soon.

 

EDIT

No, I'm actually keeping pricing out of this list.  Too volatile, and of very limited use because everyone just uses Amazon (et. al.) for pricing anyway.

 

By the way, if it helps you elsewhere, you can actually drag-n-drop links directly into the edit window.  I don't know if you need to have rich text editing enabled (I do), but it works.  You can then easily edit the text of the link to show the price, or name, or whatnot....

There seems to be some confusion on whether the 4k 850b is passive or active. Website says passive. Can anyone confirm?

I assume that the 850B is the 2014 version of the 550A. If so I would expect it to be passive. Does anybody know if there are any changes between the 550A and the 850B?

No, the X850B (See "X" and hear "4K") is no where near as "low" as the 550A that you and I own.  It's a lot closer to the 2013 X900A, or rather, a passive version of the 2013 X850A.

 

BTW, I had updated the top-most post earlier today with new information that Sony was nice enough to provide.  They still can't seem to fix an error of theirs though (The X900B shows passive glasses included but claims an active display).

It looks like Panasonic has gone the way of Vizio. Not one of their 2014 sets is listed as having 3D. On the Panasonic website as of right now, it lists 13 3D TVs. All are 2013 models (which ave been discontinued). Argghh!

That's pretty big news for the sputtering 3D phenomenon.

I remember not being able to tell what was what with some of the hokey press releases that flutter around in the air after CES like dropped confetti.  I'm hoping it's only because their "spec sheets" are incomplete.

I'll try to answer that.

 

On the page for their 50" Class Life+ Screen AS650 Series Smart LED LCD TV (49.9" Diag.) (one of the few pages I could find from Panasonic on their new releases when I put them in the list), they say something like this:

 

Quote:

3D

The AS650 Series incorporate 3D re-mastering technology for enhanced dimensionality and image positioning for a rich, natural 3D experience.

I didn't notice that the first time I saw that a couple weeks ago.  Perhaps it's newly added info?  Now my question is......is that active or passive?  The glasses look a little too hefty for passive these days.

This is the official Panasonic website. It lists all their TVs. None of the 2014 TVs state they are 3D. The website listed 3D earlier this month but that is gone now. Maybe we'll get lucky and they will change the specs again later. But I have my doubts.

It's funny. When you check their site in the left and click on "3D" it only lists their 2013 sets. But if you read all the way into the 2014 sets (as above) then it mentions 3D. Conflicting info seems to be the norm.

OK, so I Googled the quote and it took me to Panasonic and a description of the "60" Class SMART VIERA® DT60 Series LED LCD TV", a 2013 model. It uses the same "re-mastering technology" quote, but without the picture of the glasses. And the DT series uses Passive, but not those glasses.
