I don't have 3D glasses so I can't comment on that part of it, but I'll answer any questions if people are interested.
My GT25 arrived on Monday, but I haven't had a chance to unpack it yet. I also have not purchased the glasses, as I'm still debating if it's worth waiting for the new models (with different sizes, better light blocking, lower weight) to become readily available (and possibly come down from their current $160/pair price), or go for the older glasses, which are about $95/pair now.
What source material are you using when you see the 'graininess'? And what are you comparing this display to? I'm coming from a bargain 1080p Vizio LCD display, and my main gripe with that is the banding in bright scenes.
