2D to 3D Conversion
The DM2780D allows any 2D images to be converted into 3D view without a PC so you can enjoy various 2D films, pictures and even TV broadcasting – in 3D.
Full HDTV with DTV tuner
Enjoy real viewing pleasure with full HDTV through DM80D’S built-in DTV tuner that supports MPEG4, DVBC, DVBT, and other digital TV broadcasting standard signals. (Freeview HD channels require connection to an external device).
Ultimate 3D Brightness
More than two times brighter than conventional 3D Monitors, LG 3D technology provides brighter & clearer images. A special thin film covers the screen to counteract any dimness that can occur within 3D images.
LG CINEMA 3D technology eliminates flickering shutters from glasses allowing you to enjoy 3D viewing for an extended period of time.
While LG’s 3D technology enables our glasses to eliminate flickering images, our Next Generation 3D panel provides clearer, blur-free images. Enjoy a superior viewing experience with no overlapping images that are associated with conventional 3D technology.

I have tried the 2D-3D conversion, ok it isn't as good as a true blu-ray 3D experience but it isn't bad. So far I have watched Saw 3D, Shrek 1-3 3D, Avatar 3D & a few documenary type things in 3D and I love it. The picture is clear and sharp to me. I haven't seen any 3D movies in the cinema (yet) so I cannot compare to that but if it is like this but bigger then that will be awesome. The sounds is ok but as most TVs like this go it isn't the best but in a bedroom I don't need full surround sound anyway. I managed to pick up a small pair of USB powered 3D effect speakers which give the effect of surround sound but are ample enough for a small room.
As with the larger LGs I saw in Currys & Comets there is a part around the edge where if you are not quite in the right spot it blurs a bit but for me this isn't that much of a distraction. It is probably best to go to a store to see the differences in the active & passive sets just so you can see what is best for you. You do get two pairs of glasses one of which is a clip on style (ideal for those who wear glasses). I have been buying novelty 3D passive glasses from other websites and you can often pick these up cheaply (rather then the expensive active shutter style glasses).
Also noticed the price drop on this...I'm very tempted to buy another, that's how much I like it but I will resist as when mum & dad finally upgrade theirs downstairs we can get the bigger style version.
All my friends who have seen it have been pretty impressed, even for such a small TV. I was going to get the 32" one but it just wouldn't fit in the space I had. Couple this with the PS3 (don't forget to upgrade the PS3 so it can play 3D blu-ray) & the correct HDMI 1.4 leads...VERY IMPORTANT TO CHANGE TO THESE AS IT DOES IMPROVE THE 3D EXPERIENCE...you have a cracking setup. I have some christmas 3D Blu-Rays to watch over the holidays so I am hoping to get snowed in now!
All the best & have a great christmas everyone!
I have been wanting to play with 3D for a while now, but did not like the idea of the active shutter systems.
Anyway, it arrived and it didn't take long before my concerns went away. Not a dead pixel in sight and backlight uniformity is very good. Colours are far better than I was expecting from a TN panel (my main monitor is a 2560x1440 IPS Glossy monitor).
Being a TN panel the viewing angles (vertical especially) aren't brilliant. You will need to keep this in mind when it comes to 3D content. Shift too far from centre, and it can throw off the image. But I have my seat at a specific height and face the screen straight on, so this does not really bother me.
There is a ton of options for picture adjustment, so if you are fussy about colours, gamma, brightness, etc, you will be able to fiddle to your hearts content. Seriously, I wish my main Sony 46" tele had this level of adjustability!
Not had a problem connecting PC, Xbox or PS3 to this screen. I know some reported issues with no audio over hdmi when an hdmi input was configured for PC, but this has not affected me personally.
And for those who see big black borders around the image (i.e. not taking up all the screen when connected to pc in pc mode) there will be a setting you can adjust in your graphics cards drivers/properties for scaling properties. Adjust this and all will be good in the world.
I am using this purely as a gaming screen, so can not offer any comment on that side of things.
So hows the 3D?
Pretty good for the most part. Apart from some playing with anaglyph 3D (red/green kind) a few times, and the odd film in cinema, this is my first go at 3D.
Ok, so you don't really get full 1080 at 60Hz - passive uses and interlacing method, so each eye basically sees ahlf the vertical resolution. It still looks pretty darn good in my opinion.
Some people seem to think that you need a big screen for 3D to be effective, or need to be sitting right close to it, but my head is around 1.5+ meters from the screen when I play (chair reclined, feet up), and the 3D is still strong. Wouldn't want to be too close to it honestly.
For those wanting to use this on PC, it comes with software called Tridef, which, once installed, will allow pretty much any directx9,10,11 game to be played in 3D. Some work better than others, and some games have anomalies that make them unusable (Crysis 2 sahdows). But, there is always the option of turning on virtual 3D in Tridef, which will work with most things, including the aforementioned Crysis 2. The virtual may not look quite as good, but at least there is always the option.
I am absolutely loving Skyrim in 3D though, and Dirt 3 also looks brilliant. Deus Ex I can never quite get looking just how I want it.
No problems using 3d on Xbox or PS3 really, though Killzone 3 just doesn't look quite right somehow. Gears of War 3 on Xbox looked better than I thought it would.
I have only tried the 2D to 3D on PS3 for a short time, and it was better than I though it would be. Not brilliant, but it at least it didn't look rubbish :)
Now, one issue I think (stress think) is that I am not sure I got exactly the right glasses. From doing some research, it seems there are different types of polarised glass - something like it depends on the angle of the polarisation or something. For me, I started thinking I had the wrong kind when I tilted my head 45 degrees to left and ghosting would diminish as to be very hard to spot. Turn head back to normal and ghosting would be more obvious.
I did contact LG, but the person I spoke to was adamant to tell me that there was only one kind of glasses.
Some people reported using the Zalman passive glasses solved this issue, but I ordered a pair and had same issue. What I have done is taken a pair of the glasses from cinema, cut them to size and stuck them onto an old pair of spectacles of mine with the corrected orientation... a bit McGuyver maybe, but my 3D viewing has certainly improved.
I will be returning the glasses to LG for them to check, but wanted to give the Zalmans a try first. I am not sure I will have any luck with them, but at least I got my custom 3D specs :)
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase and am enjoying my 3D gaming. I would however like to the get to the bottom of the glasses issue.
Part of me knows I should probably mark this as a 4 star product, but honestly, it's exceeded my expectations, so it's getting a full 5 :)
OK, I know I have sung this screens praises previously, but the issue with the glasses is now bothering me. It's not something that should be hard to fix (Sending someone the correct glasses), but myself and some others are really struggling with LG customer support.
Some people have no issues at all - they have phoned up, had the problem acknowledged, and correct glasses sent out. Some of us however are not so lucky.
I have posted my glasses to LG a couple of weeks ago, but they don't have the screen in to test on. All I get now is "We can't give an ETA".
Am getting tired of using glasses I custom made using sticky tape.
If I have some luck with LG, I will return my rating to it's original 5.
If I have luck with LG, I will update this review and give it back it's original 5 stars. For now I am going to start suggesting people avoid it, purely based on their inconsistent customer support.
Ok, I did receive my glasses some time back, but I will have to decide on whether to go back to original 5 stars or something lower. LG are still making it hard for some people to get the right glasses. And some of their staff are actually acknowledging this problem now, while others are still not.
So how is it with the right glasses? Well, pretty darn good. Though not had the time to use much over last couple of weeks.
After quite some time, I think it's time to update this now. LG seem to have made the glasses more easily available, and I think the problem is recognised now.
Too bad I am likely to ditch this for a 32 inch 3D tele. Though that will be LG too as I will be sticking with passive 3D.
