Re: 3D TV a huge waste of time

I have to disagree with you, have you tried passive 3D, honestly Vizio seems to have best passive 3DTVs, I haven't seen anything that compares to Vizio so far. And you don't have to sit directly in front if it either, you can sit on the far sides and still have the 3D effect. Also the passive 3D glasses are your standard real D 3D or the IMAX 3D kind. The active glasses are the "horrible" ones.

Passive 3D has been a very pleasant experience at my house, I can only assume its because of the TV.

Try out both active and passive systems and then decide if its worth it. I'm willing to bet that passive 3D will not disappoint you because everyone who has visited my house and had the 3D experience always asks says the same question "How come it doesn't flicker? and its so smooth and bright."

I have a Mitsubishi DLP that uses BT active glasses and an LG LED LCD that uses passive glasses. For me, the active glasses have been more enjoyable than the passive glasses. I get no ghosting from my Active glasses like I see from the passive glasses. And the Active glasses have been less fatiguing than the passive ones.

Plus with the DLp set I can move anywhere in the room and the 3D looks great and no ghosting. Even from up close only a few feet away. While the LG with passive, if you move off center you need to adjust the 3D to your possition for it to look correctly or you see a bunch of ghosting. And you need to be at least six feet away from the screen with the Passive 3D.
