The Samsung is a 55 inch led. The LG is a 47. I sit anywhere from 8-10 ft from the LG, depending on which seat I choose. With the Samsung, I sat at about 12 ft back when I had it out in the man cave, and about 10ft back when I moved it to the living room.
Yes, the Samsung can have some cross talk, but nothing terrible, as it to be too distracting. With the LG, I have not ever seen jaggies or scan lines. In fact I ended up liking the LG enough that I bought a second one and sent it to my daughter back up in NY as a Christmas/Birthday gift.
Veiwing via passive is just all around easier on the eyes. My biggest gripe with active is compatibility. My active glasses from 2010 won't work with my friends 2011 Samsung nor my other friends 2010 Sony 909. Adding insult to injury Samsung is changing the glasses yet again. (don't think they are bacward compatible either) I think I read that Panasonic is also changing their glasses for 2012. As far as I'm concerned active is just a mess in that regard.
I got 2 pair of free glasses with my Samsung and bought 2 more pair following. One pair was the regular battery type the other was rechargeable. That cost me $350 additional. I know glasses have come down in cost since, however they are still way too expensive.
I have quite a bit of company out in the man cave. It's not unusual to have 6 or 8 guys (sometimes more) out there watching a game. The main TV is an 80inch Sharp, so it's not like they are over to see 3d. But when there is something on in 3d that we want to see, I just hand out the glasses and fire up the LG. Did I mention it came with 14 pair ?
I'm very much looking forward to see if LG actually brings that 84 inch to market this year. If they do; and the price is not over the moon, I may have to jump all over it. I will tell you though I may be torn. The rumored 90 inch Sharp also has my attention as well as the 4K Sharp. In a way I hope none of them make it to market this year. I will save a ton of cash !!!
BTW; The Samsung now hangs from the wall in my son's room.
