I was at CES on Friday. I have never been that interested in getting a 3D TV. Maybe a projector. I currently have a several year old Toshiba 50" 720p plasma that has the best picture I have seen on nearly any flat panel TV. I have had no plans to replace it whatsoever because the picture is just beautiful in my opinion.
When I got to CES I saw LG's 3D TV's and was completely blown away. I couldn't believe how much depth the picture had and how punchy the colors were. There was no flicker or eye strain whatsoever and the glasses were totally comfortable - much more so than my regular glasses which weigh a lot more (I normally wear contacts instead). They had a video of a video game and I was totally into it. It was a shooter and it seemed like the corridors went way into the TV into the next room. The 3D doesn't really come outward out of the TV too much, but it goes way inward. The glasses use circular polarization so you can tilt your head and be positioned anywhere and the 3D just plain works and works without any discomfort in any way.
I also looked at LG's 3D projector and was impressed, but less so than with the TV. It also used circular polarization.
I also looked at Toshiba's glasses free 3D tv's and I couldn't stand it. It was so buzzy and playing with my eyes that I felt like it was hurting them. It's like back in the day when your parents say not to sit too close to the TV because it will hurt your eyes.
I also looked at Panasonic's 3D TV's and they were just ok. They use active shutter glasses, so they need batteries and the picture was dimmer. Also, the sensor needs to work in order to get them to sync right. I just didn't care about the Panasonic's.
After that I went back to the LG TV's and the huge smile returned to my face. I was just in awe and loving it. The picture quality was equal or better than my beloved plasma at home, and that was while it was in 3D to boot.
They said that the RealD glasses will work with their TV's. They are LED lit LCD technology. The bezel on them was not too big so I should be able to get a larger TV in the same space as my current one which just fits.
They also said they would be available in March. They had one that was 120Hz (the first one I saw and fell in love with) and another that was 240Hz. I could not tell the difference and would be totally fine with the 120Hz model.
No eye strain! I could watch for hours on end without problems. Amazing!
