Plasma is the better 3D TV

Plasma is the better 3D TV
 
Buy Panasonic Plasma from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The first 3D TVs are hitting the shelves. Samsung and Sony are offering LED backlit LCD 3D HDTVs, while Panasonic is pushing a Plasma 3D HDTV. Despite the LCD dominance, I am still a huge fan of Plasma because of its vibrant image quality. It looks like Plasma is the better choice for the new 3D experience as well.
Consumer Reports has published a first test of 3D HDTVs comparing a 7000 LCD Samsung 3D TV with the Panasonic VT-20 3D TV.

Consumer Reports sees the Panasonic Plasma delivering a crisper 3D picture is no ghosting. Additionally you can still see the 3D image if you tilt your head. On the Samsung the image goes dark if you watch side ways with the 3D glasses. This means you have to sit straight through the whole 3D movie. I tend to shift around and lie down during movie watching at home.

No matter if Plasma or LCD, I am still the opinion that the best way to bring 3D home it with a 3D Projector. TVs are just too small to deliver an immersive 3D experience. The LG CF3D 3D Projector is on my short list, when it will become affordable. The $10k price tag is too hard to stomach right now.

You can watch the 3D TV test report below.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
