As other CEMs release information on their 3DTV offerring, I will amend this post to keep it up to date. If you have any info that is contrary to what I posted, please bring it up with a link to go with it. Thanks.


I highly recommend that anyone who is considering purchasing a 3DTV do their homework to see the different features for the different series, especially the Samsungs.


One item brought to my attention is that with the Sony 3DTV's, the XBR LX900 series is Edge lit while the XBR HX900 series uses LED arrays for local dimming, Check those specs CAREFULLY

The official Vizio press release ( here ) says "XpanD active-shutter glasses (sold separately)" and talks about the Bluetooth emitter, which is probably built-in (since it does not say sold separately).

Thanks

Your list fails to mention Mitsubishi DLP 3D ready TV's that have been available for two years. They come in 65,73 and 82" sizes. I have the 73" in bedroom and the 82" in living room. The 82" cost me $3600 over the internet and I bought two pair of glasses with emitter from IO Display Systems for $118. I played Avatar in 3D over 70 hours on my Xbox360. The 3D was simply amazing. I just think that 3D cannot be fully enjoyed on the smaller displays as seen in the BB displays.


The current Mitsubishis will require an adaptor to convert new BR 3D standards to checkerboard (rumor ~ $100) while the new ones won't. Sony will provide software upgrade (June?) to my PS3 so I can watch future 3D BR movies when they become available. I waited two years (73" DLP) before anything was available (except Nvidea PC 3D) to finally enjoy 3D.

OK - I will add the Mits RPTVs


EDIT: added estimated arrival date for the 3DC-1000 3D adapter - data from Mits.

Regarding Inventory of the Panasonic VT20s. Apparently each of the 250 qualifying Magnolia included Best Buys that were provided demos were allocated 2 to 3 sets for sale. That would suggest that at most 750 sets were manufactured for sale in the U.S. to date and more likely less than 500. Will we now only see the VT25 model with all the 20s sold out? Reportedly the 25s should be showing up for sale by all Best Buys as well as other retailers around June 1st.

Would be nice if the type of 3d signals accepted were listed for each display.


For example, whether it takes framepacked signals, checkerboard, pure 120hz or 100hz input, etc.

Also whether or not the tv has a vesa sync port.

AFAIK, the only TV's that take Checkerboard and have a VESA port are the Mitsubishi 3D ready DLP RPTVs. All the others use Frame Sequential (3D BD) and Side-by-Side or Over/Under for 3D from CBL or SAT


These are USA 3DTV's - no 100Hz. Thats for the UK.
