So i know this forum is based around the egg. But people who use an egg to cook with have there heads screwed on tight.. So when i have a non cooking question i turn to you.

Im looking at buying a 55" 240hz lg passive 3d tv. Ive checked them out in person at best buy. But you cant see the quality from an actual 3d movie... You just get to watch some clips from a harddrive that they hook them up to.

So is it worth it. We have a 54" and a 42" plasma but the wife and i want the 3d effect at home

    We have a Samsung 60 inch LED 3D and have never watched a 3D movie. Spent a few minutes with the 3D glasses and a 3D channel from Directv. Got a headache, put the glasses in a drawer.

    We didn't pick the TV because of the 3D, it is just a great HDTV and the price at Costco was excellent.

    We have the Samsung 65 inch led 3 D and never watch the 3D. Can't relax with the glasses on.

    Exactly. Were the same as well. Hence why were are going for the passive 3d.  The tv does all the work and you dont see any flicker from the glasses(which gives us headaches) The only brands that do passive(same type as movie theater technology) is Toshiba, LG, and Vizio

    My bedroom tv is one of the higher rated passive lg 3dtv's, can't say I've used it more than a 20 mins from previewing shows after a full year. I think its gimmick so don't spend too much. We use it as a regular tv and are more than happy since we didn't pay a premium for the 3d part. It was fairly priced on a sale.
    Then again we are not the biggest movie watchers either so movie watchers may get more from the tv.
