LCD Displays suck for 3D. A plasma is the way to go if you want to properly display 3D material.

You should watch this video:

differences between the models. All three sets—Samsung’s 46-inch 7000- and 8000-series LCD TVs, and Panasonic’s 50-inch VT-20 series plasma—produced compelling, realistic three-dimensional images. That's good enough for me and the video did not change my mind. I also line the style of the samsung better.

What that video showed me was that 3D on LCD is not worth it AT ALL, as you will likely find out based on that video. Double images like that harken back to poor OTA signals where as a kid I saw that on weak signals. No thanks!

Please let us know who it looks and good luck!

LOL! Is that where you turned the video off? :lol:

Well - it is your money and you have to be happy.

Good luck with your purchase.

Did you actually click on that video to the right of the text in that link to see how much better the 3D plasma TV looked with 3D content over the LCD? If not, then you owe it to yourself to do that before buying anything IMO.

If you did watch that whole video then you are making an informed decision and I wish you luck and hope it looks better than the video for the 3D LCD you buy.

I recently viewed the new Samsung 3D TV setup (including Bluray Player and Glasses) at BestBuy. This is nothing at all like seeing 3D in the Movie theater (eg. Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, etc.). While it does give you a psuedo 3D effect it is more like those pictures/posters that first appear as a 2D image and after staring for sometime (relaxing your eyes) you see a 3D image - which is not true 3D (no images pop out of the screen or appear to float in front of the TV screen). If this psuedo 3D turns your crank, then go for it. As pointed out in the Consumer Reports Video, the Samsung 3D only works if you are sitting up and looking straight at the screen - I verified that in my viewing (also noticed the occasional blur caused by the separation of the 2 images which is annoying). I have not viewed the Panasonic Plasma 3D solution but just comparing Plasma to LCD I would have to give the nod to the Panasonic (yes the Samsung sets look cooler, but I want performance). Again, I always tell people to pick what looks good to you. For me, I do not see the benefit (yet) of spending an add'l $500 to $1000 for a partial 3D effect. If you want real 3D in the home you will have to wait until the technology becomes available (it is coming). I recommend you use the saving (2D vs 3D TV) to pay for movie theater tickets for the real 3D experience.
