I would like to confirm this!
I have the 52" model of this TV and 3D is absolutely horrible!
The only movie that actually played with somewhat decent 3D was The Green Hornet. Everything else I tried produced what I actually can't even call ghosting, it's literally a double image on both eyes (or on a few occasions on one eye, sometimes it's the left eye that has the "problem" and sometimes it's the right!) and the depth (way back into the image) is simply impossible to clearly see what's there, as the left and right images overlay each other, while the pop-out part of the 3D effect is always followed by a 100% mirroring artifact (let's say a fish) which is now of course 2D and not 3D!
I've already called philips support, they said I should book an authorized technician to pay a visit to my tv, but I don't think there's a lot he can do (except perhaps confirm these serious issues and suggest a replacement, but that's not happening since I'm not the only one with such issues). Another 2 of my friends got the same 52" model and they are experiencing the same issues (no need to say, we tried replacing the batteries etc).
I tried combining the tv and glasses with a philips 3D blu-ray player (7500mkII) and the official 2010 fifa world cup film 3d blu-ray and people on the stands were blended together on long-distance shots, while the seats looked totally mixed up on a close-up interview. Put the same disk and watched it on a toshiba 3D set... absolutely no comparison (and I don't think that toshiba are among the best 3d tv brands).
Anyway, Philips were my favorite tv brand but in this case they really blew it.
I really-really hope that perhaps with an adjustable set of 3D glasses (any recommendations are very welcome here) I will be able to improve the 3D experience on this tv.
PS. this model also suffers from other issues I've noticed in 2D mode, such as a terrible judder (not sure if this is the proper term) when activating motion plus 200Hz even with the setting on "low" (I mean that a fast moving object produces a mirroring effect between 2 sequential frames when being processed by this motion plus feature)!
PS2. will take the test to let you know what my numbers are when I get back to the tv, in about 3 weeks from now.
edit: it's actually called "perfect natural motion" (got a bit confused with other branded names for it)
