Default Is there any truth to this????

I was at Best Buy about a week ago. While I was looking at Televisons, one of the Best Buy floor person's had said that buying a 3d model Tv will give you a crisper, sharper, and overall better PQ even when in 2d mode.

1. Is it true that having a 3D model will give me a clearer screen vs a non 3D TV, even when watching 2d HD viewing? Im very new to HD Tvs, as I mainly watch programs from my Computer Monitor. Thank You for any replies. I do appreciate it when people take the time to answer.......

Typically the answer is Yes but it is not really anything inherent to do with the 3d. It is because these 3d sets are typically higher end (quality ) sets and have advanced (better quality) processors and electronics. That does however add to costs.

Also, with regards to plasma, 3D required faster switching phosphors, which had a side affect of helping 2D images.

What he really meant to say was "I make more money by selling these 3D TV's than I do by selling 2D TV's"

That may be true but what he said is also factually true. As a rule 3 dimensional television also typically have a better picture than the inferior or cheaper 2 dimensional television for reasons given

!00% agreement the manufacturers put their best electronics into the 3D sets, creating a bigger market to unload those expensive sets. Everyone shops for PQ, the 3D was a byproduct.

It was Best Buy...doubt that the sales dude had any clue as to the real reason that the PQ is better.

Only Panasonic's VT series of PDPs uses a special PDP display. Their ST and GT series along with Samsung's PDP 3DTVs just use a regular PDP display.

All I can say is that the VT has incredible PQ. It blows away my previous 850 series.

Indeed. Everyone who comes into my home comments in the superb picture of my Panny plasma in 2D and are absolutely blown away by the 3D picture, as well. .

I don't think this is true, if it were all TV's would have the capability already engineered.

Well then you would be wrong. Simple as that. Adding higher end panels/phosphors and electronics adds to cost and produces a price point not everybody is willing to pay. JUst like not every car (or any other product for that matter) has every available luxury or add-on. Different price points for different quality levels.
