In that case see what you can do to fix that if its not fixable.

Any of these will be great. Probably cheaper on Amazon.

Might see what I can do with my TV now, but if all else fails, may inquire about that first link there for that LG.

It comes down to personal preferance. I looked at several active tvs before buying and the best
quality 3d i saw was from the lg tv. Combined with cheaper glasses it was a no brainer for me and i looked for a year or more before buying. Every one said active was the best so i tried hard to find an acgive tv i liked better than my LG and i couldnt
Love the LG

I own the 55" Panasonic passive 3d set as well a 47" LG passive model. I am happy enough with both of them although certainly there are gripes about both. The Panny cost me $900 last month and the LG was $900 a year and a half ago so I'm considering that with any issues I have with the sets.

Personally, I prefer passive 3d since I wear glasses full time anyhow. I bought a polarized clip on lens that I can wear on top of my glasses and I now have eight pairs of glasses for guests that came free from the two tv's.

However, the active vs passive argument is a huge flamewar and you're little a match at this moment so I highly suggest you do some research of you own on the subject of passive 3d tvs to determine if it's what you want. Besides the rest of the internet, there's already quite a few threads on this site alone on the topic it's a pretty bitter topic that rarely stays civil.

Its good to here from someone with both.... Dont know why people get so fired up about it. Evryone needs to look at several and decide for self whats best
In three years the tech for both may be much imoroved

I recently purchased an LG 55LM4600 from Walmart for $850. I can't seem to find any professional reviews on this model. Does anyone own this particular TV? Is it a good purchase? Thanks in advance

its not a silly question, yes the glasses from a RealD 3D movie will work not an IMAX 3D due to the different polarization used. And if you are going to buy a Passive set I would look into the Vizio M3d550KD it was the best value and preforming LED 3D out of the 55" sets this year.

I've got the Panasonic TC-L42ET5, which is a Passive 3D set with "Real D" 3D. I can confirm that my local theater's glasses work great on the set, though I prefer the look and feel of the ones that Panasonic includes. I would imagine the 55" version is no different.

Definitely worth taking a look at.

I never considered a 3d television due to the hassles of charging glasses and price of the sets. Then I came across passive models last year and purchased a 55" LG. Love it! No regrets.

Why do all the threads like this in the 3d section, especially the passive threads, turn into a whole bunch of members making pointless comments about how much they love their tv, instead of actually properly answering the OP's question?

Sure, but that's not the point of my previous comment. The OP's question is "best passive 3d tv that uses the 'real D' glasses from the theatres?", which says to me that he is after recommendations of the best models that do this, not for every person to tell him/her why they think the passive model they bought is the best, or to reassure him/her that passive is the way to go and that he is making the right choice, especially since the OP stated that he already made the choice between active and passive.

Edit: In my observations this seems to happen the most in the passive threads, where they often go off topic and just become a pat on the back contest when someone says they decided to buy a passive tv.

I hear where you are coming from. I'm not speaking for everyone but for me, i'm not looking for a pat on the back. If it wasn't for my wife I would have brought an active tv,and I think I would have been just as happy. Up in til now all of my tv's have been Samsung sets, so it was like pulling teeth for me to go with the LG. I just think everybody is going to be a little bit bias toward there tv is what it broils down to.

I'm just curious. I thought 240 Hz was supposed to be the minimal standard these days?

Well I like both active and passive. I avoided passive for awhile because testing them on release, I could totally see the broken line structure and the lower 540p.

Have some satisfactory active 3D plasma's, and battery charging and comfort was not really bad with active glasses, but I was getting some 'feedback' about the active glasses and especially the peripheral flickering.

Also for a workhorse family room TV, I liked the idea of LED passive with low power consumption and lower risk of IR/burn-in.

Hung up an LG and was immediately disappointed to notice the 540p effect which I'd hope they had reduced by now.

But soon realized that once you move quite far back it does become less distinguishable. In our case, probably beyond 10 feet. It works out good for the seating position, because if you lean forward, the interlaced lines can be seen, lean back and they're gone. And I conceded that 3D movies will usually involve decedicated viewing from the back of the room. So pretty much a foot closer would be the deal breaker.

So to answer the OP's question, the active plasma 3D TV's are pretty much riskless as it's hard to go wrong there, and there are options for comfortable glasses. But if you want to try an affordable and easy to live with passive, the one key factor is: how far away will you be sitting?

If you're going to be close or even "medium-close", maybe skip the passive. If you know you will be viewing from a far distance, passive should be OK, and it has other natural benefits.

Question LG's Ultra HDTVs

I understand how LGs FPR may cut down resolution to 540p per eye. Won't LG's new UHDTVs fix this issue?

Since these sets are going to be 4K displays, each eye will receive 1080p per eye, thus taking care of the issues that polarized TVs have.

Also looks like LG will be releasing 3D 4K sets at 84", 65", and 55".

I'm sure Sony's 4K 84" set will show 3D at 4K per eye, but I don't know when we will be getting native 3D content at 4K any time soon. Unless i'm mistaken.

http://engt.co/YFyW5J

LG UHDTV will be coming out sometime this year.
