Since you have one, is passive really as crosstalk and ghosting free as they say? If the lag isn't that bad and the 3D image is good, I'm def interested in that set.
Not using Game Mode is brutal. I forgot to turn it on the first time I played MW3 and my heart sank when I was moving like the hands of a clock.... click, click, click. I switched to Game Mode and it returned to moving smooth. I have the Xbox HDMI right into my receiver where others say to send it straight to the TV and then change the input to PC mode. I may do that to see if it's any better. I don't notice the lag now but if it is even lower lag numbers, than why not?
I'll be the first to admit I'm no videophile so I'm not even sure what some of these issues are. I watched Monsters vs Aliens in 3D (on PS3) and it was great. I didn't notice anything strange. I played Uncharted 3 in 3D on the PS3 and it was pretty cool. It's different than I am used to so I'm not sure I could consistently play games in 3D.
It's a pretty sweet TV, I would definitely try to demo it at a store. I bought it through Amazon. They had a better price than it is currently at plus it came with 4 pairs of glasses. Also, they credited back the price for the LG 6 pack of glasses as well so I got 10 pairs for free. That's another reason I liked the passive 3D. I would never have bought more than 2 pairs of Active glasses at their current price.
