I'm an old hat when it comes to HD, I've been at it almost as long as it was possible to do. When it came to 3D though I retained a degree cynicism. 3D in the consumer market is still moderately new and I was not at all sold on the idea of expensive active shutter glasses which do not lend well to family or group viewing without paying almost as much as the TV all over again.
When I saw the LG advertised originally I maintained my corporate cynicism however our main TV developed some rather unsightly marks internally, akin to bubbling and this forced me to think hard about 'what next'.
Eventually, exhausted from reading hundreds of web pages about 3DTV, I took the plunge. It arrived before I had any material to watch. That aside, once it was connected up and run on "normal HD" content I couldn't believe my eyes - it was almost like being reborn, the difference between this and my previous Philips high end HDTV was remarkable. I was very impressed indeed. Even my wife commented and she takes a great deal of convincing.
Fortunately I have Sky+ HD so 3D was a web-visit away, while I started hunting down the desirable 3D titles on BD. The 3D experience was truly superb, faultless. My wife who is a permanent glasses-wearer found placing the supplied passive spec's over her own to not be unpleasant and can easily sit through a full film without discomfort. As to me with 20/20 vision, I have as yet experience no unpleasant 3D "side-effects" like nausea, headaches, despite watching up to 3 3D movies in a row during a 3D marathon.
I would have to place this TV as my star buy of the last 5 years, no quibbling. Thank you LG for an excellent product!
