Best 3D TV: Best 3D TVs
17 May 2011
LG’s shift to passive technology for its 2011 3D LCD range sparked a startlingly bitter war of words with its Korean rival Samsung, and threatened to ignite another damaging AV ‘format war’. Now things have calmed down a bit, though it’s become clear that LG’s passive approach is simply a well-considered, worthy and family-friendly (with its seven pairs of free glasses) alternative to the full HD active system. The passive tech has a flaw or two you need to be aware of, especially if you’re thinking of buying a really big TV, but on the 42in 42LW550T the system works just great, thank you very much.

After a rather fumbling start on both fronts, Sharp’s Quattron (extra yellow sub-pixel) and active 3D technologies finally get their combined act together with spectacular results in the shape of the 46LE831E. The contrast problems that troubled the first Quattron sets are hugely reduced, and the crosstalk ghosting issues that so troubled Sharp’s 3D debut TVs are almost removed completely. The result is one of the brightest, most colourful 3D pictures yet - and 2D pictures are no slouch either. The set’s a bit fiddly to use and doesn’t ship with any free 3D glasses, but it’s still a resounding success.

After a disastrous 3D start to 2011 with its crosstalk-riddled EX723 TVs, Sony thankfully made giant strides forward with the 40HX723. There’s hardly any crosstalk at all on this set, leaving you free to enjoy the punchiness and clarity of its 3D pictures once you’ve coughed up for however many 3D glasses you need (none are included as standard). It’s a good 2D performer too, and also boasts arguably the best online TV service around: the genuinely useful Bravia Internet Video platform.
