Many of our customers are asking if they ALWAYS have to wear glasses after purchasing a 3DTV. The answer? “Absolutely not!”
In most cases, 3D TVs are also the best 2D TVs. The 3D sets are the highest end models that manufacturers are offering and all of the internal components, video processors, and scalers are the best that manufacturers have to offer. Then, when you want to watch a 3D bluray disc, play a game in 3D, or watch a 3D broadcast, you put the TV and device in “3D mode,” pop on your 3D glasses, and enjoy TV in a “whole new dimension” (pardon the pun). Anyone not wearing the 3D glasses will see a double image. Most people today will enjoy 90+% of their TV viewing in 2D. As more and more content becomes available, we’ll be doing more and more 3D viewing.
Take advantage of some great promotions from Panasonic and Samsung. Through the end of the month, both manufacturers are offering free 3D bluray players and free 3D starter kits (which include 2 pairs of 3D glasses and a 3D bluray disc) with the purchase of one of their 3D sets. The Panasonic VT25 series won “Best in Show” at the Consumer Electronics Show and comes in sizes from 50″ to 65″. If you’re looking for an LED, the Samung C7000 or C8000 series are both great sets and come in sizes ranging from 40″ to 65″. Remember though, when it comes to 3D, processing speed and size are king. My recommendation is the Panasonic TC-P65VT25 if you’re looking for a flat panel. If depth is not a concern, check out the 73″ and 82″ Mitsubishi DLP sets. The only thing better than watching a 3D movie on an 82″ TV is watching the Ravens win on an 82″ TV. Hopefully we’ll be able to do that in 3D soon too!
