I just found the following thread here about how to determine if your panel is good at 3D delivery or not - it's a test to see how much cross talk your TV displays. Here's the link: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1291751
I wasn't surprised that my Samsung did quite poorly.
If other owners Samsung 2011 series 5 plasma owners can try the test and post their results, that would be awesome.
Here are my results:TV model: Samsung PN64D550 64" Plasma
3D glasses model: Samsung SSG-3100GB battery powered.
Firmware: 1018.1 view from 8 feet.
Cell light 16, running in "movie mode"
Left eye open/right closed -> top half screen smaller visible number -> 1
Left eye open/right closed -> bottom half screen smaller visible number -> 6
Right eye open/left closed -> top half screen smaller visible number -> 4
Right eye open/left closed -> bottom half screen smaller visible number -> 1
Please run the test too, if you can, and post results.
VERY similar results over here with a PN51D550 set.
I've been having the same problem with my 51" D550 set since I bought it in October. PQ is great, but a hefty amount of ghosting in 3D with pretty much anything I throw at it, be it movies or video games. The only 3D that seems to NOT have ghosting is the upscaling.
I've been trying to figure out a solution from changing settings to checking the firmware, and the only thing I can come up with is the 3100GB glasses. They don't appear to block out much light whatsoever. I'm wondering if those new $80 model glasses will alleviate the issue, or if they're even compatible with the TV. That being said, I did a good amount of research before I bought the set, and never saw anything that talked about the ghosting being so bad...
On my end, even in bright scenes I get the faint outlines around faces, etc. Looks like a bunch of silhouettes. -__- While gaming, I get significant crosstalk around the hands in FPS's, not to mention ghosting all-around. Ever figure out a solution?
