With regards to the set's 3-D performance, I'm a bit confused by the conflicting reports. Tech Radar's review states it is stellar, looking much better than other passive sets. Yet owners and people seeing retail demos are reporting seeing interlace lines and the same old passive resolution. I have to say, when I watched the 3-D content on the demo at the Sony store, it didn't look any better than say, a 55" LG set that goes for $1000. Is the upscaling not kicking in for some reason? is the whole dream of 1080p 3-D in both eyes with these 4K sets with passive 3-D not reality? Anybody know?
Something's wrong. I saw a regular blu-ray 2K movie (3D) on the 65X900A and it was spectacular and 1920x1080. (Or more accurately, 3840x1080 but with some manner of upscaling horizontally. Probably just nearest-neighbor (pixel replication yielding 1920x1080).
And it *IS* reality. The way FPR works is that every other scanline has a circularly polarized filter "on it". This means that every other scanline is dedicated to the left and right eyes (alternating). This is great news for left/right sitting, because at nearly all horizontal angles the same polarization is effectively "covering" the same scanline.
However up/down is a different story entirely. This has been discussed a lot already.
