I've never seen this TV in person, so I can't really say one way or the other, but I definitely wouldn't judge the thing on it's 2D to 3D conversion performance. The idea of 2D to 3D conversion, is pretty much a joke to begin with, and I think that it would be best to view that kind of feature as something that you most likely will NEVER use, but maybe just once in awhile the effect will work for specific content. I would imagine that watching 2D TV or Movie content would be quite painful. If you're a gamer you might want to try something like Gears of War 2 on the Xbox 360. I remember hearing at CES that somebody was using Gears of War 2 on a 2D to 3D conversion, and the results were pretty impressive.
In other words, I think the 2D to 3D function is probably something that only gamers would use, and even then, most likely 90 percent of the time it would be a bad idea to use it even for that. Maybe 10 percent of the time there is a certain game that looks impressive because the game engine the game is using for whatever reason works well with the conversion algorithm.
The bottom line is that you need to watch some REAL, true 3D content. Watch the Monsters vs. Aliens movie and also the Masters, and then report back.
