Passive 3D Tech has the advantage of passive 3D glasses which are flicker free. However, I have some reservations regarding passive 3D TV - owing to halving of vertical resolution to 540p in each eye.
Just wait until the prices of the LG World Record 4K TVs come down. Then that would be end of the 540p argument! Before that happens, personally, sitting a reasonable distance from the TV, I don't really notice a decrease in the picture quality when watching passive 3D. I do notice the interlaced lines when I am up close to the TV, however. The experience is different for everyone, so I recommend everyone to check it out for him or herself before making a judgment call on that.
LG WRman Sherlock, out!
thankssBoth have their advantage; while passive technology based 3D is easier on the eyes the active 3D has a better picture quality. On the flip side active technology TV asre battery based and needs battery replacment. Though they are not as bulky as they used to be in the past.
Though I personally am no big fan of 3D; when we compare the two the active scores as per picture quality. And within this Sony and Samsung are clear winners.
Be reasonable Sherlock. It's not just the prices of these 4K TV's but also the screen sizes that need to come down for the passive 3D drawacks agenda to come to an end
Both are great in their places. I personally like dual play gaming feature of passive 3D tv and theoretically that is not possible in active tvs.
