From the press release: As the world’s first Full LED 3D TV, the LX9500 uses an innovative backlight structure to deliver spectacular pictures for the ultimate 3D experience. Illuminated by panels of LEDs directly behind the screen (the 55-inch model boasts 1,200 LEDs), the Full LED display provides images of exceptional brightness and clarify for unrivalled picture quality. Complemented by a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and TruMotion 400Hz (480Hz), the LX9500’s mesmerizing 3D picture transports viewers right into the heart of the action.

This is one time, thin may be in.

When watching a Panasonic VT20 I noticed the bezel blocks the 3D. Has anyone else noticed this? The LG uses a clear 1/4 Bezel, I think it will blow the 3D up even more as there is no border , everything will look like it is floating on a wall ! <<< Click Here >>> . If you have seen a Panasonic TC-P50Vt20 or a Samsung UNxx7000 I think you would agree?

Now I am going to have to rethink my plans to get the Panasonic Plasma 3D TV.

I see the LG is the first and only 3D TV to date supporting Multi Picture format that will read MPO files in 3D directly from my Fuji Finepix W1 3D Digital Camera. (No hook up to a computer required.) [Would be great if it includes a SD card slot so I could input directly from the media card. Also would be nice to learn whether it can also play back in 3D the 3D video recorded with the Fuji Finepix W1 Digital camera.]

I'm curious, were there any prototypes at CES for the LG and for anyone who was there to compare, did it meet or exceed the Panasonic Plasma with its great 3D picture? Also curious if the LG will have the same limitations as the Samsung LED with regard to limited viewing angles (compared to the Panasonic Plasma 3D) and losing picture when tilted as demonstrated in the Consumer Reports test?

(Unclear though if the [up to 15 minutes] video captured with the Fuji Finepix W1 3D digital camera in 3D_AV1 format onto an SD card can be viewed in 3D on the LG 3D TV even with a computer.)

I am surprised there is no word on their 3D BD player. They had one at CES though it was a prototype. AFAIK, they make a popular BD player(s)

Apparently it has been assigned a model number (BDT350) and reportedly will become available mid-April in advance of the LG 3D TVs or more likely when the LG TVs arrive mid-May.

Just curious, for those at CES how did the LG compare to the Panasonic 3D TV?

That's the Panasonic 3D BD player (DMP-BDT350) with DLNA. The BDT300 doesn't have the DLNA

Good catch. I'll have to go back to the source. Of course I guess it is possible that LG is not going to bother offering their own 3D BD player in the same way it looks like Vizio is letting a third party market the glasses for their 3D TVs. Of course that would contradict what is stated in the link from earlier today reporting that LG will not only be offering the players but also "the world's first Full HD 3D Projectors" and 3D TVs with polarized glasses. (I guess it is all in the timing. lol)

Still really curious though what those of you who were at CES thought of the LG 3D TV offering compared to the Panasonic Plasma 3D that won the honors.

From your link:

Quote:


LG is committed to securing a dominant position in this fast growing market expected to surpass 80 million units by 2014, and aiming to achieve 25 percent share of 3D market in 2010. LG’s strategy includes plans to offer a diversified line-up of products in screen sizes from 42 inches to 150 inches utilizing both polarized and shutter type glasses and to launch a family of 3D products including LED LCD TVs, Plasma TVs, Blu-ray disc players and the world’s first Full HD 3D projectors

IMO - the 150" is their CF3D Full HD 3D projector which does use polarized glasses, but I do not believe they will release any flat panel displays with polarized glasses as the only working models are the Xpol tech models that offer only half res.

That certainly makes a lot more sense than promoting a product that could be at least a half decade away. By the way, I did locate a model number for the LG 3D Blu-ray player from a U.K. source as linked below. It is referenced as LG's 3D BD with model number BX580.

(Assuming the 3D BD player also offers the ability to play MPO [along with HD Div X, MP3, and JPEG Play] I am curious if one could simply attach LG's 3D Blu-ray player to the Panasonic 3D TV and be able to view in 3D MPO files on the Panasonic as well without having to go through a computer? Additionally, since the MPO files are playable directly to the TV via a USB Port would a USB Port have to be on the 3D BD player and is it likely the player would have a USB Port?)

Thanks for confirming the USB connection. I guess the jury is still out on whether the U.S. model will read MPO files. Now if I could read Korean....

No 2D to 3D conversion and only 55"? I want something bigger with the conversion. I'm in no rush, which is a good thing!

Upgrading 2D to 3D will be like upgrading all signals coming in to 1080P. Was the process complete, yes. When you feed in a bad signal, in the end the signal will still be bad. This will not be top quality as if it was filmed and completed in 3d from the get go, as a 480i film is transfered to 1080P is not top quality in the end with conversion.

Are you sure? Really no 2d-3d conversion (like Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and others)??

Any news on these new Infinia LX9500's, I am intersted in the 55" series, I am so borderline on the Samsung C8000 series, but these new LG's look extremely promising and damn sexy.

There is a link on the thread I posted yesterday with regard to the 47 inch model now being available to order at Best Buy. No word on the 55 inch. Apparently both have been available in Korea so it would be interesting to hear from anyone there who has compared the models.
